Until recently the typical female characters in the video-game-world were a rather predictable bunch of pumped-up, under-dressed Barbarella-Barbies conceived for an audience of adolescent shut-ins. Lately however, I have started noticing some more intriguing looking avatars in the window of my neighborhood GameStop.

Following a new trend from certain game producers to cater to a female audience as well, the heroines have evolved into modern day icons with current, yet creative looks. Check out the model-like Lightning from Final Fantasy in minimal makeup. Or Jade from Beyond Good and Evil with her bandana, spiky cropped hair and green lipstick. How Downtown!

My favorite is Faith Connors from Mirror’s Edge. Love her cool style and rebellious demeanor as well as her graphic makeup. Is gaming going to make it to my to-do list? Who knows……..

    Yessss! My two favorite hobbies are gaming and makeup artistry. I’ve done a few looks inspired by video game characters. Some of my favorites: Midna (human form) from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Ulala from Space Channel 5, and characters from the Soul Calibur series. There’s definitely lots of inspiration to be found in video games.
