Hey, and welcome to day three of CS First Fashion and Design.

In this activity, you'll create a tool to accessorize a character.

As you build this project, you'll learn about an important computer science concept called events.

Events trigger code to run.

For example, to move a character in the program to the left, you would use a left arrow event.

When the left arrow is pressed, the code under the event, in this case, Change X By Negative 10 is run.

Today, you'll code your project to change the sprite's accessory every time the user presses the right arrow key.

Fashion and interior designers need to imagine how choices and accessories, colors, patterns, and styles will affect the overall look of an outfit or a room.

It can be difficult to accurately imagine how a particular pattern will look with another pattern, or how one accessory will look when matched with a second.

One way to envision these choices is to combine photos or material swatches on an inspiration board like you see here.

Inspiration boards help stylists picture how different patterns, colors, and objects fit together.

This activity has four starter projects to choose from.

Each contains different backdrops and accessories.

This example uses the People Starter Project.

But select the one you like best.
