Sari, Sari Sumdac is a fictional character in the Transformers Animated cartoon series. I think she is made up of liquid metal.
She is an interesting charter for sure and I am happy to see her in a saree!

I was never a fan of video games so I had no idea what was going on in that world until today. I just learned that one of the character – Oerba Yun Fang in ‘Final Fantasy XIII’ video game, actually wears a saree – a futuristic saree – as they call it.
They even have an instruction how to tie saree in her style.
And, guess what…Fang’s saree can also be purchased here.
The last time I discussed a saree in multi player games like Second Life, I complained about the lack of pleats.
And looks like somebody took that to heart and created something that has nothing but the pleats.
The pleats look more like they are exhausts for the personal rocket transportation system..
You can see the digital Ghaghra here, it is a valiant effort.
Not sure how many bits and bytes we have to use to turn the six yards of saree in to a digital presentation!
I have showcased some digital sarees before, and this is probably of the same level of details. At least blouse and the border and even the pleats part is depicted correctly, not perfectly, but at least it is there.
I am pretty sure in a few years the general quality of 3D animation will improve and we will see more nuanced character depiction.

A lot better than many other digital sarees that I have see; at least an attemt has been made to include the pleats of the saree.
Try out some of the Bollywood poses for the Second Life from Katiya’s page.
Second Life game seems to have imploded over the last year or so, but there is plenty of curious things to find there.
This is an image of a saree clad second life citizen. The pleats aren’t right, but it is close enough.
