Danielle Meder is a fashion illustrator who knows nothing about videogames. So when she was asked to re-interpret five female game characters, she had nothing to go on but her instincts. She chose a “style icon” who could inspire their look and a designer to dress them in. And the results are kind of cool.
Personally, I think the Princess Zelda design is fabulous. The Commander Shepard is funky, and Chun Li is creatively realized. But Mileena looks like she belongs in Silent Hill, and Lara Croft is even more exposed than normal!
You can view all of her illustrations at this link and choose your favorite. You can also enjoy the comments, especially the one from the gamer who takes her to task for not knowing anything about the characters and his opinion getting them all horribly wrong.
Honestly, I think her perspective is refreshing, and as I said, I like three out of the five. What do you think?
