When Avatar Worlds Predict Teen Fashion Trends

Cartoon fashions may point to future post-Millenial generation trends.

The age of identity politics and the avatar are slowly creeping upon us as the post-Millenials become accustomed to social networking in avatar worlds. Not surprisingly, the economy for avatar gear in places like WeeWorld and Hobo Hotel continue to sustain itself. However, for many of us Millenials/Gen-Xers, the thought of outfitting our avatars can still be quite disconcerting. Even more unfathomable, what happens when avatar couture affects the look of its user? This is future that Tumblr Toon Trendz (ironically) begins to explore.

Taking its que from fashion collage sites like Polyvore, Toon Trendz offers looks based on the many 90s Nickelodeon cartoons from Rugrats and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters:
