So now I have a G3M texture, yay! Ragnar was in the FastGrab for $6; don’t have Gianni 7 or the G3M Body Morphs, but that’s okay for now.
So if one has an Achilles, one might want to trot out some Bronze Age props! Not that there are very many of them, but Gazza at Renderosity’s Freestuff has a Boar Tusk Helmet and Tower Shield. Alas, it doesn’t look like he ever got around to making armor like the Dendra Panoply, but one takes what one can get when it comes to the Bronze Age.
I fell in love with The Iliad when I was fourteen, and so the Bronze Age and Trojan War has always been a thing for me. Even after all this time. 😀
That over-the-top floofy dress is awesome! Put it on G2F Skyler, then continued my “little girls and dragons” theme — I’m rather fond of that Long Neck Dragon figure, even if it is an old one. And I’d forgotten I’d bought the Castle Turret. It’s a nice prop, though it takes quite a while to render. (This one took almost four hours.)
As October winds down, I realize I managed to spend more money than I intended. I’d been pretty good the last few months, but that PC sale usually pulls me in, even if I’m no longer in the PC Club.
A few non-Halloween products I was especially excited to get hold of:
Darius 6! He finally joins Lee 6, and now I only need Mei Lin 6 and Monique 6 to finish up my “wish list” of Gen2 base figures (though I wouldn’t mind acquiring Scott 6 if he goes on sale.) I bought Freak 5 because he was only $1.99. Good deal! After I bought the Achilles face I realized that I still have no texture sets for the G3M! None, except the one he came with. I suppose I’ll have to do something about that one of these days. 😛 Liked the look of Ali’s new hair prop; bought it at his store instead of Renderosity.
Then there were the Halloween-themed indulgences:
Already mentioned why I picked up Jezabeth. The Possessed V4 texture was a good deal and I generally like this vendor’s textures; buying it was pretty much inevitable. Maddelerium’s store is on sale at Renderosity, and so I bought Kelsey V4, which in turn allowed me to get Giggles V4 for free (part of the current Halloween deals at the store.) Stan M4 now has an equally creepy female counterpart! The Ring Light set was inexpensive and since it’s for Iray, I figure it’ll come in handy — and I like some of the special effects. Finally, the Hat House…cute and toony!
My DAZ PA Sale loot so far has been the Illumberella and the Rim Light Rig. Since I’m heading up north shortly for the annual Cranberry Fest event, they’ll probably be the only things I buy.
So I sat down to play with the lighted umbrella prop, which I love because it’s just so quirky, and made myself do an actual render rather another of my usual test renders. It was inspired by an image I saw on my Pinterest feed some time back.
Also used buildings by 1971S, a few from AntFarm’s Never series, a light set from SickleYield (a PA Xmas freebie a couple years ago), and Oskarsson’s Boulevard Dress for G2F.
I really do like those CoffeeShop Blog textures, though they’re not for every render idea.
