    Well, Lightning is about as expressionless as your typical fashion model, so why not, right?

    Gamers -> Unlikely to care about fashion?
    Especially players of Final Fantasy I think are unlikely to care about fashion.

    Players of Candy Crush, Bejeweled, Peggle -> More likely to care about fashion.
    Just for selling fashion, I think it's fine. I'm not sure Lighting is a lot cheaper than traditional models once all costs are factored in. If costs are about the same, designers will use traditional models because that's what they're used to.

    This might work somewhat better in Japan, but in the west, you're absolutely right. Gamers and high-end fashionistas aren't exactly the same demographic.

    Well maybe on the econ side yes. Like money wise don't care about high fashion. But even I care about outfits and such for my characters so I can say this is definitely a step towards something interesting. As the article discussed further down we might see a new trend where the designers might actually hire people with fashion experience to design wardrobes for characters.

    Well, that would certainly be nice. Lord knows Tetsuya "belts and zippers" Nomura needs some advice there.
