What I’d Wear If I Were An Xbox Executive

After last week’s “What I’d Wear If I Were Superman” piece, I had a really difficult time trying to figure out what to do for this week.  At first it seemed that Man of Steel was the only relevant option, and I’d already used it up.  Then, inspiration struck!  It’s not exactly comic book related, but it couldn’t be more relevant!

If I were an Xbox Executive, (which, thank GOD I’m not!) I’d start with a basic disguise: classic trench coat, wide-brimmed hat, and oversized glasses!  Remember, although it is technically a disguise, it doesn’t have to be ugly.  Here are some classy examples:


Once I nailed a stylish, yet effective disguise, I’d accessorize.  Competitor flair would help hide my identity, and potentially save me from life threatening scenarios.  You can pick one side and stick with it, or mix it up.  I found that Etsy artisans tend towards Nintendo, but there were a handful of fun items from Sony inspiration as well.  In no particular order, these are some of my favorites.



Of course, the most important part of any outfit is the shoes!  There are some really fun shoes on Etsy.  These NES inspired designs made the top of my list:


Finally, on the more intimate side… You’re under cover… someone else gets under your covers… you don’t want your cover blown… (insert dirty innuendo here)


If you’re left feeling vulnerable, you can always err on the side of caution, by making sure to carry around an insta-disguise:


As always, these items were hand-picked from vintage and handmade sellers on Etsy.  Please help support these small businesses by “favoriting”, “liking”, sharing, and purchasing!And hey, in all seriousness, someone might want to share this with Xbox executives.  It could save a life!
