Digital fashions


Apparently this is now a thing. You upload a photograph of yourself and get back a digitally edited version wearing a fabulous outfit, which you can then post on Instagram for the envy of your friends. You have to pay for it, but it costs a lot less than buying the clothes for real. Also it costs the planet a lot less in CO2 emissions and water use; growing cotton requires a lot of water.

Perhaps in the future, silly young women will walk the streets in plain leggings and T-shirts but all wearing augmented reality glasses through which they will be able to view their own and everybody else's amazing digital clothes.

at "grand theft auto V" there is costumes / clothing that have nothing but aesthetic value.

erm... Photoshop?
OK, I know it does more than that, but seriously: that's harmless fun.
What I find much worse is software that makes people look thinner, prettier, cuter, less flawed, adhere to "beauty norms" - whether it's done professionally or as a matter of course on Instagram et. al.
That really destroys people's lives, esp. when they're too young to understand how their psyches are being f*cked over.

Nightmare or dreamscape - you decide. I'm also told this may be 'over-stimulating' for some people, so you've been warned. If I remember right the Neveldene/Taylor movie Gamer also featured this (AR clothing) as a special effect in the 'game world' part (which if I remember right was supposedly based on The Sims games, although like all Neveldene/Taylor movies it rapidly escalates into violence).

I vaguely remember reading something about some department store having a 'fake jet plane' inside it for the sole purpose of taking photos for social media as well - I think the idea was to brag that you were 'on a trip' but from what I remember of the article people got pretty creative with it (like 'clown on the wing' kind of shots) - it was amusing but I can't say I see the original intended appeal ('bragging on social media').
