We all liked dressing up as kids. Whether it was an army outfit with a plastic gun pretending to be Rambo, or it was frilly pink tutu with a wand pretending to be Cinderella. So, it’s no wonder that so many of us are transfixed on fashion, seeing as we have been trained from a young age to conform to such societal norms about what to wear. Then, when we hit our teens, we get preoccupied with what’s hot and what’s not in magazines that are laden with girls and guys who model the latest trends.
With the growth of mobile gaming technology, girls and guys are becoming style gurus as they explore the latest in hot looks in a dress up game on their mobile phones. Many of these games allow the user to design, develop, and create their very own fashion range with hundreds of different options for clothing and accessories.
Dress up games for girls are becoming more popular, especially among young teenage girls. It is for this reason that most dress up games are aimed at them. How so? Well, they are often plastered in stereotypically girly material, like hearts and jewels with enough baby pink to make even Paris Hilton jealous. What is more, there tend to be more girls’ clothing options than boys’, where you will often see skirts, dresses, and crop tops, rather than cameo shorts and sneakers. Not to mention the fact that most don’t even let you create a male fashion range, only female.
While most of these dress up games are aimed at the younger female audience, it should be noted that there are some that are only available to adults. We’ll leave it to your imagination as to why such a game might be aimed at adults only!
There are many dress up games out there, all aiming to be more unique than the others. This gives rise to some very inventive games indeed, where users can dress up not only women, men, girls, and boys, but also aliens and monsters! One such game called Monster Make Up allows players to style monsters in a variety of different clothes and then do their makeup.
However, most dress up games will offer a generic clothing line that the user has to develop in order to progress. Some items of clothing will include:
Then there will most likely be a generic line of accessories that often includes:
Having chosen your favorite pieces from the range of clothes and accessories, it is normally up to you to style a model of your choice and present your skills on the catwalk as a newly-formed fashion guru. Here you may be judged by other players online. This is your chance to make friends and take inspiration from other players’ style (or lack thereof).
Most dress up games are free and won’t cost a penny to download and play. Anyone who is interested can check them out for free! On your mobile device, you will simply have to download the app. If you prefer playing it on your PC, you simply have to login to the game in the browser of your choice. It is that simple!
