Christmas in July: Hat Fits

prev_tropicalxmas-hat-fits

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Tuco Hat from SAV Famous Hat Collection for M4, 70’s Hat 2 from SAV Hat Collection V4, Elfama Hat, Santa Hat Prop V4, cap from Bad Boy M4, and/or Tulip Hat V4 (download info on top of page; site has adult content)

Info: A bunch of fits for figures I use most often. They’re quick-n-dirty fits; a starting point to save a little time. I didn’t include any Genesis figures, but applying either the M4 or V4 fit pose works with a few minor adjustments.

The Elfama Hat fit only works for the cr2 version; I figured most people would use that one because it’s the one with morph options.

There are Tulip Hat fits for Dawn, Dusk, and Luna. (I made fits for other figures a while ago.) I didn’t get around to doing any Tulip Hat textures for the Christmas in July theme, but maybe I can still get something in by the end of the month.

Oh, and I forgot the link to the Bad Boy M4 cap in the readme file. Sorry about that!

Stocking Stuffers #14: Glitter Shoes Multi Figure

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Info: More glitter!

Just little sets, in holiday colors of red and green, silver and gold. The glitter part(s) of the shoes are set to glossy plastic with 25% reflection (not sure how this translates to the converted Poser materials.) If you don’t like the shiny look, both parameters can be changed in the surfaces tabs.

Alas, I didn’t have any Dawn shoes that work in both DAZ Studio and Poser.

Stocking Stuffers #08: K4 Santa PJ’s

Holiday PJs, for DAZ Studio and Poser

DOWNLOAD

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Conforming PJ’s for K4

Info: A set of Santa-themed PJ’s for the kids. The pattern was a little stretchy in the arms and legs with some poses, so I ended up making solid-color options for those parts of the outfit. Then I added a big Santa face on a couple more.

There are a couple utility presets to change the buttons to white and to switch the cuff colors between red and white.

Not one of my better efforts, but maybe folks will still find it useful. ๐ŸŽ…

Stocking Stuffers #05: Snow Days for K4

prev_k4-snow-days-01 prev_k4-snow-days-02

DOWNLOAD

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Kids 4 and the snowball prop from the free Gumdrop Snowball Poses

Info: Similar to the Sadie/Sam set, although with a few extra poses — allย  but one are mirrored.

A number of the poses need to have limits turned off. Some of the snowball fight poses need the snowball prop parented to a hand, others don’t — they’re separated out in the folder by types. The snow boulders aren’t parented to K4. To move K4 and the snowball/boulder around a scene, either parent the prop to K4 or parent both K4 and the prop to a null.

A few poses are not very clothing-friendly where leg bends are concerned. I don’t have a lot of coats for K4 — the ones I used in the previews above were converted from M4 — and movement morphs don’t always fix the problem.

I generally work around this in a few ways, like postwork, which is limited to easily fixed issues, or by using creative posing to hide or minimize the issue. Another effective work-around is to match the jacket color/texture to those of the pants so the crunchy bends blend in a little better.

Poses have a some leeway for boots and mittens; adjustments may or may not be necessary depending on what clothing you use. The poses are all for default K4, and some will work better than others when scaling K4 up/down or altering the body shape. I assume most folks understand this, but I wanted to mention it anyway.

The snowball pose for “Launch” includes positioning for only the first K4 pose; move it around as needed.

The 12 facial expressions are grouped by snowball fight/snowman themes, but are interchangeable. The expression from last year’s Winter Kids Poses should work pretty well too.

BTW, the pose listed as “Hit Front” was envisioned as a kind of “OOF! I’ve been hit in the breadbasket!” thing, but somehow it ended up a bit…zombie-like. The butt target one turned out better. ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh, and the converted coats are M4 Down Jacket and Flyer Jacket for M4/V4. The rest of the clothing is from Winter Fun K4. The “gloves” are just second skin tiled textures, like the ones for Sam.

Next, a little something different: rustic holiday room backgrounds.

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Kaitey K4

Info: One mildly grubby texture for the Kaitey Halloween set. Please note that bump maps are not included; you’ll need the original file for those. Included are extra textures for the denim Skelly skirt, the orange Skelly shirt, a dirty option for the denim shoes, a clean and dirty Skelly shoe set, and a partial preset for the white sleeves.
