Message in a Haunted Mansion [x]
Spring is now upon us, and while looking through games for inspiration, I decided that MHM is somewhat reminiscent of spring. Renovation work is similar to spring cleaning, and all the floral wallpapers and accents in the mansion remind me of flowers that pop up this time of year. To create a springy look inspired by this game, pair a floral and lace dress with a cardigan, oxfords, and a lacy bag. A cameo ring, coin ring, floral bracelet, stained glass bracelet, and crochet hair clips complete the look.
Moon Lake in the Spring (Ghost of Dogs of Moon Lake) [x]
I imagine Mickey Malone’s speakeasy was hopping in the spring! People probably came down from the cities because they had spring fever and were eager to get out of the house. This look inspired by what I imagine Moon Lake in the spring would be like. A straw cloche with green trim is perfect for the 1920s vibe of the game, and the green lace-embellished dress is a perfect accompaniment. The floral clutch bag reminds me of a more colorful version of the wallpaper in the cabin, and the key necklace is like the one Vivian Whitmore sent to Nancy to unlock the speakeasy. A bird ring and paw print earrings reflect elements of the game, and the bracelets reflect the glitz of the speakeasy and the earthy feel of the woods around it. Finally, a moonstone ring matches the name of Moon Lake.
Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake [x]
Even though it’s April, the weather is still pretty cool. For me, this means wearing my cardigans and scarves longer. Weather can get pretty chilly on a lake, so I imagine Nancy wore an outfit similar to this one during “Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake”. To create an outfit inspired by this game, pair a cream tee with a gray cardigan, a crochet scarf, pink jeans, and oxfords. Bird earrings, a moon necklace, a dog ring, a moonstone ring, and a floral bag complete the look.
The Creature of Kapu Cave [x]
CRE is a game that many people in the fandom don’t like to play, but I actually find it very relaxing. After all, you’re in Hawai’i! How could you not be relaxed? Shelling, fishing, and eating shave ice add up to a mini vacation without ever leaving home. To create a look inspired by this game, pair a lace shell with a navy cardigan, mustard jeans, and a pineapple print scarf. Cutout oxfords, bug earrings, a fish hook necklace, a shell ring, and a starfish ring complete the look.
If I were to do another Polyvore contest, would you all be interested in participating?
Peachy Keen Ice Cream (Alibi in Ashes) [x]
I love how HeR chose to portray River Heights. The ice cream parlor is absolutely spot on with how I imagine a shop in Nancy’s hometown to look. The wrought iron furniture, the old-fashioned counter, and the chalkboard menu are absolutely delightful. To create a look inspired by one of the sweet treats on the menu, pair a lacy skirt with a bow embellished top, a cardigan, and oxford flats. Peach earrings, a spoon necklace, and bow hair clips complete the look.
Vintage Nancy Drew [x]
Locket necklaces remind me of Nancy Drew. I think a major reason of that is that they have the word “lock” in them, and we all know how much Nancy likes unlocking things. Another reason is that they are perfect in creating a vintage look, and vintage fashion reminds me of Nancy. To create a look using a locket, pair the necklace with a lace-front dress, a cardigan, glitter oxfords, and a hair bow. A bracelet stack and floral earrings complete the look.
