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.

Stands, Displays, and Boxes

Doll Stand and Cradle for Kiki || Doll Stand for BJD || Display Stand Set || Wall Display Shelf || Display Cases || Very Victorian Bell Jars || Zippys Bell Jar || Display Domes || Snow Globe Stage || Curiosities Stand || Display Bases || Simple Sci Fi Base || Toy Box Props || Morphing Moving Box || Skeleton Keys

Notes: With a little fiddling, the doll stands work with other figures. If you add a key to the side of the Curiosities Stand, it could pass for a music box. Toy Box props for action figures, and maybe your scary haunted doll needs a big box to crawl out of.

Backdrops and Scenes

dolls_props-pedestal + gate dolls_props-toadstool stage dolls_scene-bakery 1 dolls_scene-bakery 2 dolls_scene-toy store

Pedestal with Gate || Toadstool Stage || The Bake Shoppe with interior view || Toy Store

Notes: The Bake Shoppe could be turned into a doll shop with the use of other shelving and display props. The Toy Store is both for free and for sale; don’t know for how much longer it’ll be free.

Doll Figures

Scary Cherry || Pippin Basket || Bunka Doll || Kokeshi Ninja (matches this figure) || Matryoshka Doll

Notes: Other kinds of dolls, including the creepy and the cute. All but the Matryoshka Doll are posable…though the little ninja doesn’t have much to pose, his head does have a few movements.

Notes: If there’s a similar plastic army shader for Poser users, please let me know and I’ll add it. :)

Next up, a round up of commercial doll-related products that I’ve bought (or haven’t bought, but they’ve caught my eye.)

Freebie Spotlight: Dolls #01

Characters, Textures and Morphs

dolls_characters-a3v3-Ling dolls_characters-maddie noel dolls_characters-k4-clara dolls_characters-k4-mara season dolls_characters-k4-mei dolls_characters-k4-piper dolls_characters-k4-cute morph dolls_characters-m4-Eulu dolls_characters-m4-H4 M02 dolls_characters-v4-ami a4 dolls_characters-v4-riho dolls_characters-182 morphs v4 dolls_characters-laura morphs dolls_characters-Long Neck V4 dolls_characters-v4 spandex morph

Ling A3 || Noel for Maddie (morph only) || Clara K4 (also here) || Mara Season K4 || Mei K4 || Piper K4 || Cute K4 Morph || Eulu M4 || H4 M02 || A4 Ami (also here) || Riho V4 (also here) || 182 Morphs for V4 (G1 / G2) || 135 Morphs for Laura || Long Neck for V4 || V4 Chest Spandex Morph

Notes: The textures are mostly painterly-looking. Ling’s textures work on V3, Laura, and Maddie — and also convert nicely to V4, as shown here and here. I’ve never been able to get Clara’s face morph to work in DAZ Studio; it must be a Poser-only thing. Piper K4 matches Piper V4 (still available) and Nassir M4 (not available, but it’s always worth contacting the vendor to see if they’ll sell privately.) Ami comes with a cracked texture (default and cracked.) I’ve injected the 182 Morphs for V4 into M4 and K4. The 135 Morphs for Laura work on Luke too. (I haven’t yet tried them on any of the other Mil3 figures. According to Mustakettu85 in the comments, they do indeed work on the other Mil3 folks. Edited to add: DS users need the Inject PMD Plugin; a version of the morphs that work in DS4 are here.) Some dolls have long necks; this morph helps with that. The spandex morph is for use with second skins.

Also, the Gen 4 Toon Tones would work well for doll skin textures.

Clothing, Female Figures

Faerie Couture A3 || Idol A3 || Little Dress A3 || Tink Dress A3 || Yukata A3 || Hanbok Genesis 2 (shaders) || Beach Wear Genesis 2 || Marina’s Swimsuit Genesis 2 (V4 version) || Party Princess Dress K4 || Snowdrop Dress K4 || Kimono V4, with textures || Cooking Stage Dress A4 || Cheap Lingerie A4 || Fantastic Bodysuit V4 || Gal Pal II V4 || Gymnastic Wear A4 || Magical Dress A4 || Sakura Skater V4 || That Little Dress V4 || Tink Dress V4

Notes: Trying for a range between fluffy girly dresses, fairy outfits, super heroes, and basic modern stuff that you’d probably find in the Barbie aisle, though I confess it has been many, many years since I’ve done any Barbie doll shopping. When all else fails, there’s swim suits and lingerie. Red Viper’s outfits for A4 generally don’t work well on V4, but there is a V4 fit for the Magical Dress here. Some of these outfits, like the Idol A3 one, have lots of freebie textures at ShareCG and Renderosity.

Clothing, Male Figures

Golden Age M4 || Super Hero M4 || Summer Casual M4 || Kireta Clothing Set M4 || Mountie for M4 || Yagyu M4

Notes: Not a lot for the guys; either super heroes or Ken-like dolls, with the occasional costume collectible doll. The Super Hero set comes with a hair prop. The Yagyu set is Poser dynamics only, but I’ve used part of it without too much trouble in DS (the site also has other Poser dynamic traditional Japanese clothing.)

Accessories and Shoes

Sugar Plum Jewels || Toony Crown || Gothic Parasol || Umbrella || Flutterby Wings || Universal Wings 2 || Classy Shoes A3 || Chic Shoes V4 || Platform Slides V4 || Leafy Boots V4 || Deck Shoes M4 (V4 version) || Oiran Clogs

Notes: Again, just basics. Wings for the fairies, crowns for the princesses and ballerinas, high-heeled shoes, and shoes for fairies and costume dolls.

Hair Props

Baby Hair (textures) || 60’s Flip Style || Spiral Twin Tail || Mitsuami Hair V4 || Ella Hair V4 || Hero Hair M4 || Komachi Hair V4 || Takashimada Hair V4 || Utamaro Hair M4

Notes: There are plenty of other hair props that would work as well; these cover the basics from baby doll hair to super heroes to antique and costume collector dolls. For more traditional Japanese hairstyle, see Fujiko’s gallery or these for the P4 Female.

A couple of nice texture freebies

One in time for St. Patrick’s Day and the other looks useful for postwork effects.

Also, if you’re on the hunt for new fonts, HG Designs has a couple of posts on freebies (some commercial restrictions will apply) here and here.

I have been very lazy with free stuff and rendering. I think it’s the weather. About this time of year, I am really, really tired of winter. Not that winter cares, as we’re due for a few more inches of snow today. :|

OMG! So Cute!

!Figures_Star

And she’s mine! :D

Just bought the base figure so far; I’ll wait a bit to see what other outfits, hair props, and pose sets she’ll have.

I may now have to budget for the skinny-legged unicorn.

I’m also hoping she’ll get a male counterpart.

How I wish DAZ’s pricing for new figure shapes was more like this. Impressed by the new Darius and Monique shapes, but DAZ has pretty much priced me out of using this new generation of figures. Happily, there are other new shiny things to play with.

I’m off to make some poses for her, to get a feel for how she handles. Plenty of morphs, including expression dials. Maybe we’ll get lucky and see a CDI morph set for Star.
