Check out this for an example of what we can do with the home page: Cosmetics Slider | LayerSlider Premium Slider Template. Picture the bare ear in the background with different earrings cycling in from right to left like this effect. I think this would support user swiping as well to put them in control of the experience. This type of dynamic rendering of layers and partially transparent images could also help create a virtual version of the staging you were talking about.
