For your first day at E3 you’ll want to choose the most confortable outfit possible. When you get there, getting used to used to the different areas which means a lot of walking; even if you have been visited the L.A Convention Center many times… Therefore you’ll want to avoid wearing any type of heel, even kitten. Aim for confort from the bottom up! First choose a pair of kicks such as these, which in addition come in black.
Then, you can proceed to choose your bottom. Skirt and dress girls beware, you need the freedom to bend down re-arrange your swag, set up your camera, or pick your lipgloss; So, if planning to choose these kind of garment, wear shorts underneath! preferably biking shorts [for their flexible fabric] or volleyball because they are usually a %100 cotton.
However, for events like E3, your trusty pair of old blue jeans will suffice. Opting for pants or jeans is a great move; just make your they are freshly washed and pressed. This way you can throw on a blazer, some houte video game jewelry and be party ready in no time! The Pow headband or the Princess beret also make very usefull day-night transition pieces. You can neatly sweep your hair after the long day of amazing IT and look amazing yourself.
The beautiful California weather usually lends itself to light sweters and jackets, E3’s day one is no exception! Especially when you are already inside the Convetion Center, too thrilled to stay still and looking in your map for the next spot to check out. Choose a simple cardi that will match any top. With more reason if you are already wering one of your favorite gamer tees.
Another popular otion is the wrap around scarf. These light pieces are short enough for a confortable leghnt on your torso and wide enough to wrapp ourounfd your shoulders when it get chilly later in the evening.
Last, but not least the BEST kind of event bag..THE MESSEGER. Fit anything from tablets, to makeup, to legal pads and pens, to lunch! This canvas item will collect all your precious items safely away leaving you hands free to try out all the games and equipment you can get.
Incorporating any of these pieces into your E3 wardrobe, you will intertwine fashion and gaming by choosing pieces that fit your personal style but at the same time allow you to have fun and explore throught the sea of technology. The key is to pick only one or two video game pieces as a base, and built your outfit from there.
