Wintery cool, silver tones coupled with minimalistic looks. Photos of hospital halls from 2050. 2nythetic’s instagram blurs the lines between reality and 3D with creepily realistic imagery. Between the eerie liminal spaces and robot/human selfies, there’s more to 2ynthetic than meets the eye. Is it 2ynthetic wearing those sport-cyber clothes, or a complete rendering of a humanoid body? Who knows! What’s certain is, 2ynthetic is confident when it comes to creating a futuristic fit.

Her style and 3D art equal a bubblegum blast!

Paola Pinna is a 3D artist peeling back the curtain of reality and the virtual. Her instagram feed is a mix of totally normal selfies and totally out there 3D art. Her virtual muses rock pink space-buns, septum rings and butterfly tattoos—polar opposite of Paola’s laidback personal style. Through her art, Paola expresses her creativity and sexuality, and creates powerful and super fashionable women. From angels to aliens, Paola is ready to render them all!

Imagine a Sims game gone awry. Instead of your standard Create A Sim, someone added in a BDSM cheat code. Think whips, latex and chains with pop-culture references thrown in for fun. Stacie Ant even creates augmented reality 3D girls! Stacie creates sexy monster girls who will terrorize as well as mesmerise, so you can step right into Stacie’s world.

Digital art has entered the world of high fashion! Having worked with mega famous models like Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer, brands like Burberry x GQ, and musicians like Charli XCX, Ines Alpha is on top of her game.

Now how can we get this make-up to stay on in real life?
Fashion and 3D art might be an unexpected pairing, but aren’t you glad that it exists? After all, designers want to satisfy a creative vision sometimes reality can’t deliver.
