We just had a play with our very own Dress Up Designer set, included with CR's current Summer Bumper Book O' Fun issue. Created by Peepshow's Elliot Thoburn there's a whole host of achingly hip looks to give your creative duo...

So, to start off, here are our two budding creatives on the page, in their smalls (the firm grip the chap is sporting is for his cut-out iPhone of course). You can also download the templates for him and her from the website address included within the issue, should you not want to deface your new CR.

A good few weeks' growth on the 'creative beard' and our chap also gains some nice skinny jeans:

Hello! That's a handsome shirt sir! Not to mention a tasty timepiece. Meanwhile, our creative lady has found a pretty cool T-shirt (Ocean Pacific no less) and is now rocking a nice pair of shorts too. Must be summer.

Now he gets shoes, while she receives a belt, a pendant, a hoodie and – very important this – a nice bag to carry ones knitting in:

All the clothes come with folding tabs so you can alter the look of your creatives as you wish (see top image for the full free-standing look complete with shades, bangle and bags).

The more adventurous among you many even have added your own additions to the wardrobe and, if so, we'd love to see them.

Thanks to Jasmin for her sterling efforts with the scalpel in the CR office! Dress Up Designer appears in our current August issue, out now.


Bringing back the magazine your mum used to buy you for the aeroplane full of loveliness to keep you occupied in the summer hols. Awesome.

Sadly they look exactly like 40 or 50% of the people I know.

What about giving the download details to all us poor freelancers who can no longer afford to buy CR on a monthly basis? Failing that, send me the magazine and I'll pay you in 90 days or so....

Loving it, its inspiring me to turn my own 2-D illustrative characters into paperdolls!

Dress up games were always a fun interactive flash experience. Glad CR tried their hand at a cutout model. I find it hilarious that there is a compulsory iphone.
