This Dope Fashion Line Brings PORTAL and ASSASSIN’S CREED to Life

When gaming, customizing skins can go beyond creating a playable avatar, sometimes you wish you could dress in real life to actually become that character. Cosplay may be more involved than you want to get, but there’s something about putting on a piece of clothing that can change your attitude and bring your closer to your favorite films and video games.

Thankfully, Volante Design is making it that much easier to bring casual gaming cosplay into your every day life.

Inspired by gaming, comics, anime, and film, the streetwear is elegant and stylish, designed to protect you from the elements, yet infused with the style of geek culture.

The sleek designs are inspired by games like Portal, Assassin’s Creed, and more. With product names like Hacker and Augment, the online world is a big inspiration, but there are also items labeled as “scavenger” which hint at a life on the remote Star Wars planet of Jakku. The allusions to gaming and films are subtle, and while pieces will be familiar to eagle-eyed fans, to everyday folk they just appear to be nothing more than beautifully tailored coats.

This is what makes these jackets perfect for transitioning from con-life to daily life.

The coats are stylized with detachable hoods, and fine pocket and zipper detailing. These little additions add a lot when it comes to the overall look and feel of the designs. They are finely finished and look it, with slim-lined vests full of flare and coattails aplenty—you’ll look like you’ve walked right out of a video game.
