Console to Closet is a blog that posts outfits inspired by popular video game characters. Launched on Tumblr earlier this month, it combines fashion and gaming by displaying clothes, shoes and accessories that match the color scheme and capture the essence of famous characters such as Mario and Luigi, Link, Zelda, Lara Croft, Sonic the Hedgehog, and others from hit series including Mass Effect, Portal, The Elder Scrolls, and Bioshock.

Video games have a high aesthetic quality, whether it’s detailed graphics, intricate environments, or stylized characters. Fashion shares this quality. Thus, Console to Closet was born. I create outfits inspired by my favorite video game characters, items, and places.

Each post includes a link to the image used as a reference and a Polyvore web page that shows where each item from the outfit can be purchased. Click through the pictures to check out some of the imaginative outfits that have been created so far:
