This project was my second big project working in CLO3D. The focus here is gaining mastery with some of CLO's more finely tuned elements -- for example adjusting the avatar's appearance and creating a tech pack. I created this project from start to finish while living at my childhood home during the COVID-19 pandemic. While at home, I found a box of yarn in the basement from before I left ten years ago. It made me remember being young, having lots of time for creativity and all my friends around me to work on projects together. I began to play with the yarn, and came up with a knit stripe and a patchwork of crochet flowers. From there I used my scanner and Photoshop to create custom fabric textures to use in CLO. I applied them to designs I reworked from a previous design project, and built a dream-world of optimism and youth. For me, this was a meditation on age and agelessness just as much as it was a chance to learn a new software. Even though ten years have passed, sometimes I still feel like the young woman I was before. This collection is a reflection of that process.
