Well it looks like the Genesis 70% off sale ended while I was sleeping. Not sure how I feel about that… there was more I could have bought but there always is, isn’t there? I did bag the stuff I really, really wanted and I’m feeling very pleased with what I did get. Probably no bad thing to have some funds left for future sales on other categories.
Speaking of which, did you know Faveral has a birthday sale on right now? I added it late yesterday to the post and it was in an email from DAZ, but if you missed it listen up: right now you can get a huge 66% off Faveral’s products (all but his latest release). Faveral does impressive work so have a browse in his store and I bet you’ll find something that will inspire new renders.
Something else that’s new is Avalanche of Savings. This is related to a new Good and Evil bundle which will be released next Monday (looks like there are a couple of outfits included in the bundle and the ‘good’ dress certainly looks lovely in the preview pic). Starting with yesterday’s new releases, each day you buy from the new release section you’ll earn a 20% discount on this bundle. Buy something on all 4 days and you’ll get it at 80% off. We don’t know yet how much the full price of the bundle will be, and although it’s bound to be a DAZ Original I don’t know if PC+ membership discount will stack with the Avalanche savings.
The releases today are all pretty nice, regardless of whether you want to get the 20% off this upcoming bundle or not. I think Flower Faeries for G2F by Ryverthorn will be a hit. These floral outfits for fairy women feature some lovely flower sculpting along with iridescent wings. These bikini-style flower outfits with their leafy tendrils are possibly the prettiest skimpy outfits the store has seen!
It’s also great to see 3djoji bringing those adorable Toon Generations up to date with the first in a series of new releases. This one is Little Sailors Props and Clothing, with a selection of sailor and captain uniforms and some additional props. They look like a lot of fun, and even more so when paired with the Katherina Boat. This boat is packed with details and could blend in well in more realistic scenes too. You’ll get the sea surface with it, plus a glass presentation case to use it as a scale model instead, and those night lights look fantastic — I’m guessing these too are included.
Freediver and Accessories for G2F completes the ocean going theme, giving your Genesis 2 women a convincing wetsuit (with several styles), mask, flippers, and an amazing-looking diving watch too.
Landlubbers, why not treat your favourite (3d) girl to a new dress? Nikisatez has an attractive, vintage-style dress now in store with a full skirt, nice neckline draping, and some retro prints. This Take Me Back Dress for G2F is going to be hard to resist and is perfect for fifties-style renders or a modern miss looking for some classic style. Dress up this or any other fabric in sumptuous brocades. Brocado is a seamless tile set with 54 different tiles. These rich fabrics will add a little luxury to any outfit, and you can also use them as a Merchant Resource (for making and selling your own stuff).
