I'm not normally a costume-based player but my friend had a themed party: game characters. I grew up with Final Fantasy and was obsessed with VII-X (I'm just...confused by everything post-X). While my older brother played FFVII and I watched, FFVIII was the first I played, and my first proper introduction to RPGs. I don't really game any more, ever since I started taking art more seriously and would just feel guilty that I wasn't spending time on that instead. But these games will always occupy a special place in my...thumbs.
So for the party I just threw together stuff I luckily already had. The faux fur was a leftover from when I was a Viking. The sword I cut from pieces of cardboard and held together internally with a metal ruler and butter knives. Lol. I was pretty impressed with myself for that.

Oh, now as you‘ve mentioned it I think I can notice some Sim City influence on your art. I think it‘s beautiful.. the way that art can reflect quite everything that once was in artist‘s mind.
I‘ve played Sim City once, but I failed really hard on organising things. My city was nice-looking but not functional at all, I was really regrettable player Therefore I‘ve never been a big fan of that game.
The only game that I trully adored (and I still do) is called Syberia. The game‘s mission starts in a small town called Valadilene. (Weren‘t there any mechanical toys in your childhood?) In this town quite everything is a mechanism (starting from door-handles and ending with quite individual robots and even trains). Everything is for a reason there and quite everything needs a keyscrew to live. This place.. always seemed so delicate and so fragile to me, it has eventually become my secret dream place. (And by the way, while the game‘s louding they show you pictures, pencil sketches of these mechanisms and how they work. I could stare at those pictures for hours).
Ha, so if you ever notice something like that in my gallery.. you will know where it comes from
