Baby Luna

I bought Luna on release day and finally sat down yesterday to do a render. A very nice figure — much cuter than that poor Mil3 Baby — and it comes with a decent set of basic morphs to change the age/appearance of the baby.

Bath time!

I kept the default age, added a few face morphs, and a bit of chubby body. I really like the figure; a welcome addition to the Hivewire family. Of course I want more morphs — my usual refrain. I’ll have to see about adapting some of those free Dawn morphs to work with the baby while waiting for more from HiveWire.

For basic wear, this baby needs a t-shirt, a onesie, and booties. I’d also like to see a disposable diaper and/or a diaper cover. Maybe the latter can be done with a texture. I put my son in cloth diapers when he was a baby (though some day care providers insisted on disposable, which I could understand) and used diaper covers for them. They worked pretty well.

I’d also like to see a little dress and overalls — the kid wore a lot of Oshkosh B’Gosh when he was a baby/toddler — and a blanket (bunting?) type of thing, especially if one is doing a historical render. A simple stroller would be awesome.

Morphs-wise, I’d like a few more depth options for the chin, lips, nose, and eyes; a morph to move the nose and/or mouth up or down; philtrum morphs, and a few more shaping morphs for the nose and nose bridge. Maybe some puffier eye morphs, and a little extra control on the front teeth would also be great.

Oh, and hair! Baby-appropriate hair. That kid up there has way too much hair for its age. The only baby hair props I have are AprilYSH’s Baybee Hair and Pines’ Baby Short Hair (materials here.) Edited to add: I didn’t use those because I wanted curly hair; all my curly hair props are quite…voluminous.

The expression morphs are excellent, and the poses included have a nice range of the basic poses you’d expect for a baby. All in all, a great starter package at a very affordable price.

    • I think the rubber duck was this one: https://www.renderosity.com/mod/freestuff/biscuits-bathing-ducky-prop/69135

      The baby bath was a freebie made by Fisty, but the link I have for her freebies is no longer working. You might try contacting her at the DAZ store and asking if it’s still available or if she’s willing to send you the zip. She’s one of the most friendly and helpful vendors I’ve encountered over the years.

      BTW, she also made a freebie training potty, so you might want to ask about that too.

      I think she made these around the time the Kids 4 figures were released.
