Mid-week means it’s PC+ new release day. We also get another freebie today as part of the HolliDAZ promotion. Today it’s Drakkar Crew Action, which is one for all who have been collecting the Viking-themed series of products. Pose artist Don Albert, who has years of experience in this niche, is behind this varied set of poses. There are 29 in all, with the 18 rowing poses all different from one another. The product has been designed to work flawlessly with the Drakkar ship (get it via PC+ for a low price) in combination with the G2M base figure. However, if you want to adapt it for pirates, Egyptians, or any other sea voyages, this set will give you a great starting point.
*** What’s New? ***
Once you’ve snapped up the poses, expect to be dazzled. Astrid, if I’m not mistaken, means star. She is also a new character by Freja who is currently shining out from her promo banner and stealing the spotlight on the store page. This Nordic beauty might join a bevvy of other beauties in the store, but I think she’ll still manage to stand out.
An Aave Nainen outfit is always something to shout about, so take a look too at Katlyn Dress for G2F. This modest but pretty dress is just right for the holidays and was designed to look good on all ages, little girl or grown woman. Clever mat zones mean it’s easy to get a lot of different styles, including a cute bolero-top look or a fashionable cut-out on the upper chest area. As usual, Aave has packed the outfit with drape morphs to match the poses that come with the free G2F base plus those with Belle 6. It will fit all DAZ Original Genesis 2 female characters and the Zev0 Growing Up ‘youth’ morph too.
The dress also matches a new set of poses, the G2F Youth Poses. These are by Aave Nainen herself, although released as a separate product and don’t need to be used with the dress. It’s a fun set of 20 poses full of energy and playfulness.
Another exciting winter outfit is the casual and comfy Chill Out for G2F by WildDesigns. I love the natural-looking drape of the sweater, especially the cowl neck. Nice variety in the 4 jeans options too, from ripped denim to a smart stripe.
There are also 4 new PC+ items to choose from this week. Princess of Yule is a delightfully festive new MFD (morphing fantasy dress) texture by Moyra. Classic Deco Eclectic 2 from Jack Tomalin expands Classic Deco with an elegant and spacious bathroom. Just add Jean Harlow, a bathside telephone and plenty of bubbles! (You’ll earn a ‘punch’ if you buy this one.)
The GIS Project makeover also continues this week with Sarsa’s Andromeda, giving the sci-fi set an eye-catching constellation theme. For back on Earth, get the Cement Shaders and rewnew your urban scenes with your choice from 20 new presets.
*** Special Promotions ***
Isn’t it about time we had a Category Sale? Well, there’s a 60% off DAZ Original Props promotion now running. Be aware that many of these have been past freebies. Also the newest items there shouldn’t have been included since they won’t get the full discount. Still, it’s worth having a look to see if there’s something you’ve missed. There are some saddles and horse armour there that have a high base price and I don’t think I’ve seen those in any giveaways or other promotions. There are also some fun bots.
The HolliDAZ summary appears below. By now, many of us will have earned some rewards and can start enjoying the discounts.
Jump straight to the HolliDAZ 2014 page to view your rewards and eligible new items.
Any other current promotions can be found via the banners on the DAZ Store Homepage.
