alright, mid-2000s throwback: like every other girl on the internet in their early years, I was into dressup games (a classic genre!!!). I revisited the genre and found that dressup sites are still alive and well. Then I found this thread by Angie Jones, who wrote about how she revamped a dressup game she’s built since 2008.
how cool is that? despite how formative the internet was on my childhood, I never got into coding or designing until much later—art was the one and only influence for a long time, and I never seriously pursued that as a long-term career thing.
these days, I’m looking back at these things with nostalgia. The small, creative internet. Aaaahhhh, how to escape the addiction to the bird app and other sins.
