Abstract: Cosplay has grown from its origins at fan conventions into a billion-dollar
global dress phenomenon. To facilitate imagination and reinterpretation from
animated images to real garments, this paper presents an automatic costume
For some reason I expected this to be from anime image to costume sewing pattern.
I had to google "cosplay market size" to confirm, but the paper's assertion that it's a billion-dollar industry does appear to be correct (!)
Two of the paper's authors work at the technology arm of Zozotown, one of Japan's largest fashion e-commerce sites, which points to how this could have practical benefits.
A bit offtopic, but my fear with these AI systems is that they will create "Discovery channel" effect in other areas – replace fewer good quality items, with a flood of passable AI generated alternatives, making good quality stuff harder to get. Hope I'm wrong.
