I Got Next: Find out how to make the ultimate gaming costume

Every time I look at Dragon Quest Heroes, I get the same overwhelming feeling: I want all of these outfits. Yangus' vest, Alena's rad hat, the whole wardrobe; it all rules. That's a common occurrence when you love video games, though. From Assassin's Creed to Deus Ex, people dress in unlikely and profoundly cool ways. No wonder cosplay has become so prevalent.

To celebrate the release of Dragon Quest Heroes on PC this week and gain some insight on how to make our sartorial dreams a reality, we're talking to costume designer Laura Hazlett. She's designed official Assassin's Creed costumes for Ubisoft at PAX Prime as well as myriad brilliant gaming costumes. We'll be live with her on Twitch starting at 3:30PM ET/12:30PM PT

Dig the show? We’re here four days a week, Monday through Thursday so make sure to follow our Twitch channel! When are we live? Here’s our schedule:

I've been playing games since I turned four in 1986, been writing about them since 1987, and writing about them professionally since 2008. My wife and I live in New York City. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game ever made, Hum's Downward is Heavenward is my favorite album, and I regularly find myself singing "You Won't See Me" by The Beatles in awkward situations.
