Dark Souls is serious business. Unless otherwise. A game of cursed undead pits, the end of ages, cycles of death and rebirth? It’s a game where half the players run around with no clothes on, swinging oversized weapons, and the other half collect all the weapons they can find and turn them into portable trash cans.
That’s why for Fashion Souls, a game-within-a-game-players ignore weapon stats to create stylish outfits. Raids should not sneak into another player’s game to kill them from behind. It could be to show how beautiful you are. The age of fire is temporary. The stain is forever.
The classic fashion police took this to the next level by judging the style of the players they raided, rewarding them with items or punishing them with death for their fashion crimes. There are many ways to kick the bucket in Dark Souls, but being stabbed by someone in an amazing butterfly collection has to be up there. Although some may think they are nothing but a legend, we tracked down one fashion police.
