Fashion designers, models, and other luminaries at New York Fashion Week are shown posing with bouncing fuzzy creatures in the thoroughly odd animated GIF portraits of motion designer John McLaughlin. McLaughlin has been recruiting people to pose with the “Fuzzy Dude” at various Fashion Week events. The project started as an experiment with hair rendering in Cinema 4D, but now McLaughlin is using it to raise awareness for the nonprofit organization Champions Against Bullying.
