I updated the 2014 Halloween Update post — :P — to include several new freebies that are really nice, as well as to add some toon-ish related ones that I forgot to add the first time around. Click on the thumbs to go to the download pages.
Edited to add an update to the update for the update, LOL! I just visited Renderosity, where I immediately bought the cool new V4 Dolly texture, Poisen’s new PumpkinZ (and his older Screaming Trees) and then saw this in the freebie section:
The first three are new — I love the skeleton texture for Patches — and the rest are older. (I’m especially happy to see the new Slit Throat prop because I was mourning the loss of Bucketload3D’s Bloody Choker and Seamy Choker — I used the first one in this old test render — an old Shocktober freebie that disappeared somewhere along the way.)
I don’t have Gumdrops installed, but the Jaki/Sali sets are just too adorable not to mention. The Sali set even comes with a dress. (I’ve now added Candy/Gumdrops to my wishlist at RDNA.)
The Sam texture add-ons require commercial products — My Hero Sam and the Sam Clothing Pack. Most Sam users likely have at least the clothing pack.
The SAMS3D freebie page is almost entirely toony furniture. These little props are insanely cute!
Gone are the days when the big sites — DAZ, Renderosity, RDNA, Faerie Dreams/Faerieywylde — hosted annual Halloween freebie fests. I really miss those. RDNA still has Halloween-themed freebies, but it’s not the same as the old Shocktober daily surprises. The DAZ/Poser community used to be a lot more fun. Maybe folks just got worn out making stuff like that.
Anyway, looks like the only other sites doing Halloween freebie fests are The Fantasies Attic and A Dragon’s Breath.
This October was, for me, too busy for lots of freebie making. I’m still working on a few more projects, but they might not be done in time for Halloween. Real life ambushed me — and, as I’ve mentioned a couple times already, I should have started working on these at least a month earlier than I did. Lessons learned!
