Sticky: March Freebie Theme: Dolls

Doll01 Doll02 Doll03

Creepy dolls, baby dolls, fashion dolls, antique dolls, fancy costume dolls, collector dolls…I’ve wanted to do a doll theme for a while. Even if I might be the only one interested in it.

Wedding Textures for My Princess V4

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: My Princess V4

Info: A simple bridal dress texture for the outfit.

Bridal trans map for the Desert Rose Veil

Dug into my Filter Forge presets and came up with a netting, though it’s still kind of large-ish. Click on the image to save the transparency map, install it wherever you’d like, then add it in the Opacity channel for the Desert Rose Veil V4:

desert-veil-transp

In DS, my settings for the veil and trim:

  • Diffuse Color: 235, 235, 235
  • Specular: 90%, 125, 125, 125, 10%
  • Ambient: 245, 245, 245, 5%
  • Opacity (veil only): desert-veil-transp.jpg, 100%
  • Lighting Model: Metallic

The result looks like this:

desert-rose-veil-w-transp

Probably could adjust the veil’s transparency opacity too, for a different look.

I’m fiddling with a bridal texture for the My Princess gown, but again…I am in a lazy mood and progress is glacial. :P

Rope-Yarn Hair Seamless Tiles

Rope Hair - Chip Wild Hair

DOWNLOAD

Usage: You are free to use these tiles in your commercial and personal projects. You may also use them to make free or commercial hair texture sets. Feel free to alter or build upon them. Where possible, please use them as part of a texture template. Credit is appreciated, but not required. Please do not redistribute or sell the zip archive.

Info: Includes 28 solid rope-yarn hair tiles, 10 mixed-color tiles, a bump / displacement tile, and a specular tile.

Displacement will cause poke-thru issues with hair props that have bands or bows, so using bump settings would work better in those material zones. The tiles work well in DAZ Studio’s Shader Baker, though it’ll probably take a little fiddling around because the view port doesn’t show any changes to the tiling settings — and most hair props will need different setting for different materials zones.

In most cases, the tiles work best with all hair transparency maps removed, which is why they’re particularly suited for toon or toon-ish hair props.

Doll Additions and Bridal Stuff

I missed a few things (my runtime is too big!)

Notes: The Buttercup dress works okay on Scary Cherry, with some scaling and translation adjustments. Kid props can be used for dolls too, and Pippin Basket comes with a bunch of extras that would work well for other baby doll figures. The Rocking Chair comes with several cute polka-dot textures. The baby buggy’s cover can be removed. The doll house has no textures, but that can be fixed. The Old Books Set comes with a shelf prop for displaying a doll collection.

Notes: Chohole’s wedding texture for the Fantasy Romance dress does not work on the dress from ShareCG; you need to download the one linked here via Chohole’s page. The uv mapping for the Gothic Outfit presents some challenges, although it would look nice with satin shaders (I have some for DS here.) The Delicious Cake  could be tiered by stacking multiples of the same prop, progressively scaled down. Turn the Desert Rose Veil into a wedding veil by hiding the coins and adding flowers or a tiara (as shown here; though I need a better netting material.)

Notes: Transform the dresses into bridal gowns with some re-texturing and/or kit-bashing (the MFD has a few bridal textures, most of them freebies.) I haven’t seen much in the way of bridal-appropriate texture resources. There’s a nice white satin tile and some laces in Sew and Sew L’Amore. FrozenStar’s Delicate looks like it has a few bridal-like textures, but I don’t own it so I can’t say for sure. My Immortal Beloved is a set of backgrounds and hand-painted gowns, each with a clean/bloody option. I bought my copy at Renderosity, but it’s not for sale there any more.

Notes: Clearly I wasn’t interested in buying actual bridal outfits and props. :P Textures for the MFD and its extensions work on all MFD dresses except for SP3’s. The Just Married set also comes with props. The wedding crown and bouquet could probably be refitted to other figures.

Also mentioned earlier: the Party Princess Dress freebies for both K4 and Cookie, and the My Princess outfit from DAZ as well as the Snow Bride and Gothic Love outfits from RDNA.

Rope-Yarn Hair for Toon Salon Hair #03

rope-yarn-hair_cookie

DOWNLOAD

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Toon Salon Hair #03

Info: I wanted Raggedy Ann hair and couldn’t find any, and so this is the next best thing. A bunch of colors, from natural to fantasy, and six mixed styles.

Poser users will need to manually add in the displacement map because my DS-to-Poser converter can’t handle that. It also has issues with partial materials, so the utility to hide/unhide the skull cap will only work in DS. Sorry, guys…

Though I only included six mixed styles you can manually add others to suit your needs. DS users can apply partial materials with the usual select prop –> select surface area –> double-click on preset of choice –> then select “Ignore” and “Replace.”

I’ll also be uploading the tiling materials for this hair texture, which can be used in DS and Poser like any other tileable material. You can also use it in freebie and commercial hair texture sets.

Inside, I did something with Pippin and V4…
