About VRoid WEAR
VRoid WEAR is a project to create new value for creators and fashion for 3D characters ‘avatarwear’.
As a first collaboration product with the fashion brand ‘chloma’, the project and chloma has created ‘Y2K Anorak for VRoid’.
With the introduction of ‘VRoid Studio’, anybody is now able to create their very own 3D character. VRoid Studio has also made it possible so ‘anybody can design clothes for 3D characters’. By using the texture paint function of VRoid Studio, a creator who has never designed clothes before can just ‘paint’ clothes, and make their original fashion for their avatars.
In the 3D field, since creators can upload their original clothes, users can use those designs for their personal avatars. Creators can now choose ‘Fashion’ to express their originality, and 3D character fashion designers will be able to create their original brands in the near future.
VRoid WEAR is a project to promote and drive such markets, and explore the possibility of avatarwears.
A fashion rebel created in 2011 by SUZUKI Junya and SAKUMA Reiko, chloma studies the relationship between technology, characters, the internet and humans, and proposes fashion and environment for modern people who live between a world inside a monitor, and the real world.
