Would you make a play for this Game Boy dress?

This fashion statement is also a recipe for an instant marriage proposal from the nearest geek.

Hey ladies, if you're looking to make the geek of your dreams fall for you in an instant, this homemade Game Boy dress I found on Etsy is better than a gallon of Love Potion No. 9.

In my mind, a woman who wears this sends the message to her suitor that she's the total package -- a crafty, confident geek -- and if you're lucky, maybe you'll get to push her buttons.

This handmade creation from a woman named Amber who calls herself a "one-woman sweatshop" will set you back $78, but it seems to sell fairly well, as it has been spotted around the world. Some Game Boy dresses spotted are Amber's, and some are apparently imitations, which they say is the most sincere form of flattery.

If a clingy dress isn't your style, Amber also offers a T-shirt version and all kinds of cool 8-bit mustache gear that also caught my eye.

Finally, I know what many of you are wondering at this point, and I have some bad news for you: Amber's already married.
