Ready Player One Inspired Fashion Sets

Ready Player One will be making its Friday movie debut. Based on the best selling novel of the same name, the movie adaptation promises to bring the same nostalgia that the book brought. The big difference between the book and the film is that the film doesn’t limit its nostalgia to just the 80s.

IMHO there’s a missed opportunity there. The book recognizes this and goes to elaborate (probably extreme) measures to grab every drop of nostalgia for that decade. So much so that the avatars of the characters also adopt 80s styles and trends into their own looks. In the spirit of 80s influence check out these sets that are inspired by some of my favorite characters from the decade.


Sho Nuff

Bomber, shirt, and sneakers from Amazon; Jeans from New Look; Watch from Cafe Press;


Shana Elmsford

Blazer from City Chic; Tank, fingerless gloves, and shoes from Amazon; Jeans from Navabi;


Wang Chi

Jacket, top, pants, watch, and sneakers from Amazon;

How awesome would it be to wield a Sho Nuff avatar and demand that other characters kiss your converse? Let us not forget that Shana is one of the baddest drummers out there and can easily tap into a bit of Synergy assistance. Wang did nearly all of the work in saving his fiance and the nosey reporter from the clutches of Lo Pan.
