You might do a double take when you first set eyes on these comic book denims, for the model's arms and feet look convincingly realistic, yet the jeans themselves appear flat and illustrated. Clémontine of Déjà Neuf Heures began with a base of basic blue jeans, but has managed to strip them of their three-dimensionality with some painstaking fabric painting.

Exercising a 2D cel shading technique with her pigment, the designer produces some convincingly cartoonish Borderlands-style bottoms by hand. Take a close look at the Cosplay Pants and you'll notice some creative and detailed filling in; whitewashing, linear highlighting, black crease lines and shadowy crosshatching emulate the look of wrinkled material. These comic book denims are a great example of how geek culture has become quite fashionable.
