Last minute Halloween costume

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Most Digital Creation’s Sign Prop

Info: Pretty much self-explanatory; previews of the sign textures in this post.

As previously mentioned, the prop loads roughly in the right hand area and you’ll have to make a few translation and/or rotation adjustments to the sign after posing the figure.

Poser and DS files in the Poser runtime; move around as suits your needs.

It took me so long to upload the zip file because I couldn’t figure out why my scaling pose for the prop didn’t work in Poser. Worse still, I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t even save the scaling preset in Poser itself. I tried everything and was baffled as to why I wasn’t getting that little “+” to save the file.

Finally, it occurred to me to search for issues re: prop poses and I discovered that sometimes prop poses don’t work unless there’s a figure loaded into the scene. I think this is very strange and can’t imagine why anyone thought it was a good idea, but at least I finally figured it out…

No poses, though I still might give it a try later.

As always, please let me know if there are any issues with the zip files.

WIP: Last minute Halloween party costume

wip-last-minute-costume

Inspired by this image by nitchzombie at Deviantart.

I’m using a free sign by Most Digital Creations, resized and retextured (eight mouths, though one is just a mustache.) I was aiming for posterboard stapled to a cardboard handle. The prop loads roughly to the right hand so it isn’t too hard to pose. I might try and make a few basic poses anyway, but it depends on time. Got busy again…

I’d hoped to get these done this weekend but the hubby just sprang a family fish-fry on me tonight, scheduled for this Sunday, so probably won’t get it done until next week instead. I’m close to finishing them up, though, so it won’t be too long.

Add bunny or cat ears, devil horns, or some ridiculous hat and it would make a pretty good Halloween costume for when your significant other springs an event on you at the last minute. 😕

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Rocky Hat from SAV Famous Hat Collection M4

Info: I love this hat! So I made textures for it — three solid color leathers and three solid color velvets, with eleven hat trim partial presets to mix-n-match. They’re intended to coordinate with other texture sets in the works, which explains some of those color choices.

The leather may be a little too shiny with some lights; switching the lighting model to Metallic should be a quick fix.

Poser (mc6) and DAZ Studio (dsa, with blank pz2 files so they can be read in the Poser runtime.)

The hat is for M4, but easily fits other characters and it also works well with hair props if they’re fairly close to the head. (FWIW, I recently discovered these hat magnets and added them to my to-buy list.) I parented some hair to the head instead of fitting them to the figure, then reduced the Y scaling a bit.

A few hat/hair fit test renders:

GGN: Headgear #01

Kicking off the Girly-Girl Nerds theme with the easier stuff (by which I mean the making of material presets, which isn’t exactly my favorite part of the process, ha!)

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Headphones from Tuned In for V4; headphones from Sexy Open Side Tank Outfit for Genesis, and/or the free headphones from Most Digital Creations.

Download: MDC HPhones || Tuned In HPhones || Sexy Open Side HPhones (DS only)

Info: Five textures, four floral and one cute dinosaur pattern. DS and Poser materials for the Tuned In and MDC headphones (dsa and mc6) and DS4 for the Genesis prop (duf.)

These are easy to refit to other characters, usually requiring only a bit of scaling and translation adjustments.

Please let me know if there are any problems with the zips or files; questions welcome.

I just realized I didn’t include a preview for one of the textures. I’ll see if I can put something together with the G3F…

Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Required: Teardrop Camper  (( A pink Cadillac and some yard flamingos would also be spiffy! ))

Info: Kitsch-style Glam Camping — or “Glamping” — inspired by the tropical holiday stuff from earlier this year. A small set of textures, with mix-n-match partial materials for the interior and seat cushions. The new textures are only for the exterior hull, wood interior, seat cushions, and chrome. The rest of the textures are the prop defaults.

Reflection values added to the interior materials and windows; you can remove that if you prefer.

Included are Poser materials in mc6 format, which may need some adjustments, and in dsa format for DAZ Studio with blank pz2’s for use in the Poser runtime.

Non-postworked previews inside….
