Gaming Girls WANTED!
Ok so you may think the title is a bit sexist but if you wish to know more keep reading!
For my coursework this year in A level media, I have decided to do a pre-production of a non-stereotypical girls gamer magazine (bit of a mouthful I know -_-.
To get to the point, are you sick of seeing magazines advertised towards girls that only contain PINK colours?

Are you sick of gaming magazines that only contain games that are hobbies of a perfect “woman or girl” for example, “Imagine a wedding” or “Cooking Mama”?
Well I am, after researching for months for my A level coursework I have decided to also create a gaming magazine that is for the hardcore girl gamers.

So this is games like Halo 3, Final Fantasy, Football games etc.

Still interested? Then please keep reading XD!

I need help to produce this magazine from you! Yes you gaming girls, I want to contain many articles in my magazine to look as professional as possible.

I plan to do a dedication page where it will contain how dedicated some fans are to certain games that even have a tattoos inspired from gaming.

Costumes (cosplay aha) this is why I decided to post on this forum on this website because in my eyes this is one of the best cosplaying sites, with dedicated people. I would love to have a page of some of you wearing the costumes you have made, but I will need your permission to do so.

Interviews with other girl gamers from different regions or different countries, Questions will be asked like:

Why do you like gaming? What got you into gaming? What is your favourite game? Your name will be mentioned what region/country your from and a picture, if this is acceptable.

If you wish to help me with my coursework please leave a message/comment and tell me what you’re interested in, there will be a lot more articles that I am producing to put in my magazine but I don’t need help on these (I don’t think...)
Even if you have ideas of what else I could contain in my magazine or any contribution will be very helpful!
Sorry if this sounds a bit sexist but when I researched into girl gamer magazines there is literal none on the market place so I had to do something about it, also the theme of the magazine is “War/Army/horror” (very important).

So cosplayers who have made costumes for games like this would be good and girl gamers who have knowledge into such games, it doesn’t matter which console it is because the magazine is on the main three:

X box 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii

Thank you x

Sounds interesting =D I'd like to help out any way I can~

This is interesting, I'll help if I can!

(to be fair, I don't mind things like the Nintendo Magazine, they have a female writer, and their reviews are generally very generic...it's not aimed at girls, no, but it's not exactly aimed at guys either)


05 Nov 2009 - 18:0021871
I don't mind helping out! I've been gaming since I was about 8 (a whopping 18 years...) and loath pink consoles! I used to work for Game and spent all my time trying to convince parents not to buy barbie pink consoles for their daughters!

Not that games on showjumping and puppies aren't wonderfully excitingzzzzzzz

Wow thank you everyone I didn't realise so many people would be interested! ^_^

At the moment I'm just doing the boring stuff, like researching into why magazines are so popular blah blah...

So I'll keep you posted when I defiantly need you, because I do ^_^ There will probably be questionnaires I might have to send you through emails are something but everyone is important ^_^


And heres the facebook group I hope the link works,

I'd be interested if you're still looking for girls
All I've made cosplay wise so far is games characters but I'm slowly branching out. I love my games though I don't have facebook though, just in case that's a problem.
Your project sounds amazing!
Also, are you not including PC gaming in with xbox,ps3,wii?


05 Nov 2009 - 19:0321875
I can help if you like ^^ im currently doing a video games course in Uni lol ^^

@ Giant Lenin = No it doesn't have to be facebook based, just write ideas that can help me on here, also you wouldn't mind if I used photos of you in your costumes for the magazine?

No I'm not going to contain PC games because I only have a month to do this project in, if I had much longer I probably would

Would there be things like girls reviewing new games on the market and such?

I have to say though, this is about the best idea ive heard in a longgg time. Perhaps now i wount get kicked from servers when i speak and it revealed im a girl on xbox live... >>


05 Nov 2009 - 19:1421878

@ Neko = Thank you, you see I'm a big girl gamer and I wish I could own every console out there, so as soon as I got told we could do our media research on ANYTHING. I was so happy and the teacher I had at the time said like producing a games magazine would be really good and it just sorta clicked together !

Yeah it's all going to be girl based none boys allowed but I was thinking about voting on the sexiest male (girls are only allowed to vote though) haha!

So even the games reviews is going to be wrote by girls, probably me but I'll need to help with the X Box part because I don't own one

Oh woiw! Awesome! I'd love to help!

I've been a gamer most of my life (and I'm now currently 21) and I started out with the Sega Mega Drive! XD But I now currently have a PS2, PS3, DS and PSP.

I do love my RPG's but I have yet to do a game cosplay... although I do intend to! ^^

I'd be happy to help on this - it's gaming that led me to anime and cosplay in the first place

I'm mostly a PS2-gamer though.
I've just recently bought a PSP and might get a PS3 soon now that the price has dropped.

All my cosplays have been anime-themed so far, but I am planning to cosplay as Meryl from Metal Gear Solid next year with my friend as Snake.

This is a very interesting idea, i doubt i can help much as i have only really been gaming since i met my fiancé who introduced me to it (only 3 yrs ago). However all my hand-made costumes are gaming ones and i am actually studying female and male presentations including feminism at college.

Please keep posted on ur progress and if u need my help please do ask!

Good luck!


05 Nov 2009 - 20:1321892
Thank you ^__^! I really can't wait to get a start, just need to get the boring stuff done first XD

I'd like to take part too if you still need people! I've also just left the crazy world of magazine journalism so if you need any information on the production side of things, I can probably fill in a few gaps

That would be awesome!


Ok to everyone who has repiled to this forum, I will be sending out a questionnaire to all of you ^_^ I'd be thankful if you filled it in and sent it back a.s.a.p and please be honest ^_^

Also if you've joined the facebook group and I send you the questionnaire please just fill it in the once and send it back either on there or here.
