Creative Christmas 10: Whatever Should I Wear?

Ho, ho, ho, internet!

Last year, the amazing Kim of Later Levels created this awesome Christmas community collaboration event thingy. I was so totally in, then I deleted my old website earlier this year, erasing my old entries of the interwebz forever. Alas!

Basically, there were 12 holiday themed questions bloggers answered on set days, in a format of their own choosing. Yep. I’m still trying to get back in touch with my joyful side after 2018’s craziness… so I’m hyping myself up for that upcoming cheery Christmas event by re-posting my old answers and providing new answers for this year. I’ve changed a lot, man.

Question #10

You’ve been invited to a swanky New Year’s Eve party but have nothing suitable to wear! Which video game character do you call to ask if you can borrow an outfit?

2017 Answer

Definitely my shero Lightning! I don’t know if you know, but her main ability in Lightning Returns is to shift into different outfits during combat, each of which give her unique abilities. Some of her outfits are simply AWFUL (and so out of character I wanna Snow Punch something), but some I like a lot. If I had to choose a good socially acceptable swanky party option, I’d pick Midnight Mauve. I’m not a fan of dresses at all, but I think I could tolerate that one (just like my shero did).

I’m sure she’d loan that smoking hot (literally) outfit to her #1 fangirl, if I asked nicely.

2018 Answer

2017 me’s answer is still my preferred choice, but I thought I’d throw in a new one from a game I played this year. My Commander Shepard forced herself to wear a dressy thing to infiltrate a party in the Citadel once. I wouldn’t mind borrowing that dress and forcing myself to wear it to a party someday. I’d definitely dance more horribly and have my arms folded more often than my Shepard did, too.

Commander Ellen Shepard seemed to hate swanky parties and dresses as much as real life Ellen. Luckily, her super best friend Liara T’Soni had her back through this part of the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC. You rock, Liara! 💗

Thanks for reading!

If for some odd reason you want to read more of my posts, you can find a somewhat organized (and usually up to date) archive of my ramblings… I mean, articles here!

Really like what you read and feel like financially supporting Livid Lightning? HA! Probably not, but hey, here’s a couple ways to fuel my writing pipe dream!

"Lightning" Ellen

My name is Ellen, and I've been babbling on the interwebz about video games for over 15 years. Video games themselves have been a large part of my life since 5-year-old me first encountered a SNES in a children's hospital. Fun times... Video game escapism is still the #1 coping mechanism for adult me these days.
