The video game industry continues to grow every year, with 2012 worldwide revenues calculated at $67 billion (with a “b”). As the industry has grown, so has the quality of storylines, user interface, and graphics. Companies are beginning to realize the untapped potential of hiring costume designers to enhance production values. Until this point, character or concept designers have designed the majority of the “costumes” you see on your favorite character. These wonderfully creative artists are skilled at creating whole worlds, creatures, and even believable human characters. But none of that skill can compete with the complex understanding of costume history, garment construction, and clothing psychology that a trained costume designer brings to any project.
