'Dune' fans can now create their own 3D metaverse avatars inspired by the film
Who didn't watch Dune and wish they had their own stillsuit?
Well now you can, sort of, as the iconic costumes of Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi blockbuster, designed by award-winning costume designer Jacqueline West, have been brought to the metaverse via Dune-Avatar.com.
By just uploading a selfie, fans of the film can create their own 3D avatar dressed in their favourite Dune-inspired outfits. These 3D avatars can then be used in over 300+ VR & AR apps with the Ready Player Me platform.
Avatars can be customised with ‘stillsuits’ worn by the Fremen including Zendaya's Chani, armour worn by the warriors of House Atreides like the one donned by Oscar Isaac's Duke Leto, and even the armour worn by their mortal enemies House Harkonnen — such as Dave Bautista's Glossu Rabban.
