Halloween Link Potpourri

Halloween 2016 – “Brooms are so last year….”

Going to sticky this post in anticipation of more 2016 Halloween goodies, here as well as elsewhere. While the bountiful Halloween freebie fests of past years are mostly a fond memory for us old-timers, there are still places to peruse:

Honored blog visitors! Did you find any Halloween treasures from last year — or even earlier — that you’d like to share? DS/Poser, textures, backgrounds, PS filters, fonts, etc. Let me know in the comments and I’ll add links to this post.

I downloaded these:

props-toon-pumpkin scene_evil-tree-scene figures-halloween-junky-jack

Tweety’s Pumpkin Toon (about halfway down the page; click on the little pumpkin image), Luxxeon’s Evil Tree Full Scene, and elleque’s Junky Jack.

There may have been more, but this is what I remember at the moment.

  • Sep 27: Will suggests RenderCandy’s free Halloween-ish textures for V4/A4: Ghoul and Kiko. Kiko comes with several zombie poses and a freaky expression. A couple quick renders:

I quite like Ghoul. 😛 She comes with a second makeup option and Kiko also comes with a normal skin tone as well as quite a few makeup and eye color options.

New Halloween freebie at Renderosity: Hell-O-Ween Candy, which includes candy corn and gummy worms!

The Jack-O-Lantern shown is also in the freebies section. FYI, the file paths for the textures were incorrect (an extra file folder was added) and will need to be corrected.

Scaled up the candy corn for Yweeb to do some interpretive dance thing:

With this prop, perhaps I can kit-bash my own version of a zombie candy corn

More updates inside:

  • Sep 28: Last update until I return, next week, from eating copious amounts of fair junk food

This one’s for the da boys! A couple personal favorite, if older, freebies: LukeA’s Frankenstein/Lab and 3DTubeMagic’s Akar M4/H4. The monster/lab set comes with a character morph and texture for M4, which includes stitches and bolt props, a loin cloth prop, and a full scene with a pz3 scene file as well as separate props. Akar is a spooky looking character texture and morph for H4, and one that comes with several face and eye options. Generation 4 skins can be worn on newer Genesis figures without too much trouble.

Both textures on Genesis 1/Konrad:

The Lab in DS4 without much tweaking beyond quick surface adjustments and DS-only lights:

frankenstein-lab-ds4

And using just the Tesla1 prop:

adorable-mad-scientists

The props don’t load to default center; they’re positioned for the scene and so using them separately requires a little extra fiddling. I’m pretty sure the monster’s loincloth is a Poser dynamic, as it’s a pp2 file and has no fitting or adjustment morphs. DS users could probably use it “as is” with one of the M4 poses that comes with the monster character.

I keep expecting this freebie to disappear one of these days, so grab it if looks even remotely interesting.

  • Oct 09: Undead Dusk

Dusk comes with a zombie morph in the Starter Morphs Pack (I think), so if you have that you can use the free Undead for Dusk:

I also used the Board Shorts M4 (now at DAZ) and a free zombie pose for V4, which I think was a freebie from Pixeluna’s site and it looks like she’s removed all of her freebies. Sigh. Anyway, the poses transfer well enough, though some adjusting — primarily the feet — is needed.

Dawn can wear Dusk’s textures, but she doesn’t come with a zombie morph in the Starter Morphs set. There is a zombie character for sale at the HiveWire store though.

Oct 20: Witch’s Hat and Broom

holidays-hlwn-witch-hat-broom

Because you never know when you might need a wide variety of hat and broom styles. What if you needed a phalanx of witches riding to war across the night sky? You wouldn’t want them all to look identical, right?

  • Oct 22: A toy cat and creepy insect/spider vectors

Toy Cat Chuck, in Halloween purple! I have no toy cats, and anyway, all cats have a home with me.

    • I had them listed as part of the first massive Halloween freebie link list a few years back. The vendor’s personal store went away not long after that and I was unhappy that the community had lost some unique and fun free characters.

      But then she showed up again at the above marketplace and I heaved a huge sigh of relief.

      They’re certainly worth mentioning again, especially with all the add-ons that allow older V4 content to be used with newer figures.

      Me, I’ll just use V4, but others are more keen on Genesis 2 or Genesis 3.

      Saw a new Halloween-themed freebie at Renderosity this morning, so I’ll update the list tomorrow.

      • The Monster and Akar both look great. New shinies are so distracting—now I want a Bride. (I see a promising G2F one from Rawart at Daz, so that may go on the wishlist.)

        The dancing Yweeb is swell.

        • I know, sometimes the pursuit of new and acquisition of new shinies keeps me from making actual renders way too often! It’s like I have no self-control or something. Ha!

          I use Akar a lot for the Genesis Abominable character. For some reason, I just like it on him.

          Yweeb is one of my favorite Nursoda characters; the little thing is just so weirdly cute.
