OMG! So Cute!

!Figures_Star

And she’s mine! 😀

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.

A new baby figure on the way

Looks like Chris Creek has started on Luna, a newborn to 4-months-old baby. I’m rather excited about this because I only have the Mil3 Baby and…well, it’s kind of an ugly baby. Poor thing. (But I still have CDI’s Chubblies in my wishlist at DAZ.)

Too bad there’s so little support elsewhere for the HW figures. Dusk has been out a couple months now, and if there was anything for him at Renderosity I must’ve missed it. Saw just a few products at RDNA, mostly Poser-only. I guess I’ll have to pick up that CrossDresser license for him. I knew he wouldn’t get much support, but I’d hoped for more than this. 😦

I held off buying the Skinny Jeans for Dusk because I’m not crazy about skin-tight jeans on guys — I know there’s a loose morph — and I was hoping there would be something baggier. But it looks like I’ll have to buy them after all. I guess I’m just used to being picky like I was with M4 clothing content. Of all the male figures, he had the widest variety of clothing.

I wouldn’t need much for Dusk, though. A nice fantasy and a nice sci-fi set like Xurge3D has done for M4/V4 (and Dawn!), a basic set of jeans, long/short sleeved t-shirt and a hoodie, and maybe a suit. I could make do with that.

I also need to figure out how to use M4’s textures on Dusk. It would be hugely helpful if someone over at HW came up with a way to convert Gen4 textures to Dawn and Dusk. I’d be happy to pay for it; I bought Texture Converter 2 and several licenses and never regretted doing so.

Baby Luna will face the same problems, I’m sure, but HW is committed to their figures and I’ll keep an eye on their store. The silver lining to all this (besides less content = less bank account trauma) is that the official HW produced content always supports DS.

Frederick Douglass for M4

DOWNLOAD

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: M4’s Morphs ++

Info: An attempt at a Frederick Douglass dial morph for M4. This time, I used only the Morphs ++ set. I might still fiddle a bit with Morphus and/or the Elite International Faces, but this didn’t turn out too badly. I did end up using some expression morphs, which I usually try to avoid. Feel free to improve upon the morph (same goes for the Billie V4 one.)

Frederick Douglass is way before the Harlem Renaissance, but he still fits Black History Month…and, anyway, you’ll just have to indulge the RedEyeCat person’s appreciation for hot dead guys. 😛

Billie for V4

DOWNLOAD

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Morphs ++ and Morphia for Version 01, Morphs ++ for Version 02

Info: This a head dial morph only. The Morphia version looks more like her, but I included a Morphs ++ only version for those who don’t have Morphia.

I’ll try and see if I can come up with a couple poses for the Old  Mircrophone prop, and maybe a few facial expressions for her.

Credits: Aside of the items already mentioned in the freebie lists, I used one of the necklaces from Hadara Hair (didn’t realize the other one was flapper-friendly) and the chipped nail polish preset from Katie Elite.

Add-Ons for the February Theme

Can’t believe I missed that car! I have all the DAZ 1930’s sets, but this one is fancy. So, must have.

Also played around a little with the DieTrying morphs for Genesis and the Genesis Roaring 20s set. Fun!
