Shopping, dial spinning

Don’t know if the upcoming “March Madness” sales will be a bang or a bust, and while I’m trying to hold off on any impulse spending until I see what’s shaking out, I did impulse-buy these two delightfully goofy things the other day:

They were in Fast Grab. I already have the DAZ Monstrosities Undead Fiend, so I’m only missing the Behemoth. Not sure I’ll use them much, but if nothing else I can borrow the skins for my various Genesis creature creator sets.

And that parasite critter is perfectly retro kitsch. The promo ad with it attacking the teddy bear made me laugh.

Not doing much lately, though I’ve been in the mood to play with Dawn’s morphs. Curious to see what I can do with the only the official sets — starter morphs, head morphs, and head morph resource kit (edited to add: and the creature head morphs set.) I finally got around to learning how to make the morphs into a single dial setting so I can now mix and match my own morphs. Yay me!

Might also make them a little easier to share with other DS users, though I’m not sure there would be much of an interest in them.

Some of these faces I’ve posted before.

Used a V4 outfit on the green fae. First time ever rendering it — it looks decidedly uncomfortable and impractical — and first time I’ve used one of Biscuit’s hairs — this one is Unseelie Hair. Basically the’re all separate prop parts you kit-bash together. I like that concept.

The fae body was a mix of a freebie body morph, RawArt’s Dawn Heroine body, and Ken’s Body Type 5. Still working on her face. I used a bit of the werewolf morph and it’s causing a ridge in the brow (at least I think that one’s the culprit) and not sure if I can minimize it or not.

I think I’ll try and see if I can get a convincing looking morph of an woman from India next. The general eyes, mouth, and face shape shouldn’t be a problem but I’m thinking the nose will pose a challenge.

Weather here has been awful. Lots of snow, then freezing rain, then even more snow. Ugh. I’m ready for spring…
