A client wants this "bespoke visualizer" on their site. Is there a third party plugin I can buy for this? It can be in Flash and/or JavaScript, it doesn't matter. Also, if there's no third-party plugin that's similar to this web app, then how could I code this from scratch?

Thanks,

Steven

Are you looking for a flash app that lets you design/customize clothing? That's a pretty narrow niche application. Your best bet would be to do as they did and hire a web developer to create one for you. –  Lèse majesté Dec 7 '10 at 23:53
    
@Lèse - that's a good enough comment to be an answer –  Mark Henderson Dec 8 '10 at 4:18

If you explore the code from the page you post, you'll see that they use jquery with a jquery plugin on the left panel.

Reproduce the body part should be a matter of replacing images (my first option would be follow with Ajax to make the requests), and correct alignment with CSS (positions and z-indexes).

Despite I'm a HTML5 enthusiast, I think using canvas at this point is not the best options, as browser support is not wide enough, and development with that is kind overhelm yet. Go with simple, safe and straight-to-the-point solution.

If I was going to tackle that I would use jQuery and the HTML5 canvas element. Using Canvas does limit the browsers you can use though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canvas_element

Doubt there's any existing code for that as it's very bespoke but you might be able to find a Canvas-drawing jQuery plugin that could be modified.

To be honest, I don't think it'd be that hard, it'd just be drawing pre-defined clothes on top of each other.
