After a dry spell yesterday (February 12th), 6 new products have burst into the DAZ store today to help us celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Vicky’s clearly hoping at least some of you will take her on a date tomorrow, as she’s dressed up in some of her most seductive outfits yet. I don’t think I’m her target audience here, but I don’t doubt the ribbon outfit in Sweet Holiday Nights for G2F will win over many of her fans. It has strategically placed red satin ribbon, tied with a bow, and looks pretty convincing. The ribbon wrapped shoes, also finished with a big bow, are a nice touch. The props are included too: a big gift-wrapped present and an over-sized floor pillow. Shox-Design has some extra looks for this saucy outfit and its props in the Sweet Holiday Night Textures pack. You’ll get 4 new sets of materials for the outfit and the present, and 8 choices for the pillow/cushion.
Umblefugly and Sarsa have teamed up for the Sinful Nights Lingerie and Overcoat for G2F combo. The coat has a great flow to it as it catches in the breeze, and can be worn opened or closed. It also has a ton of other morphs to get it looking just right. The lingerie is a 4-piece set and is black and lacy. Sarsa’s texture pack has 4 alternative looks for both overcoat and undies, which I guess you could also mix-and-match.
If you need a catwalk queen to model these new outfits for you, Fisty and Fred Winkler Art (FWArt) have a girl for you. Natalia (HD) is a Victoria 6 character who belongs on the cover of a fashion magazine. She has the wide range of options you expect from this pair, and included a set of jewellery which you can also use on any other G2F girls.
Finally, a product that will go down a ‘storm’ — and is on my own must-buy list — is the Pose Builder for Genesis, G2F and G2M by Zev0 and DraagonStorm. At last, we can mix and match all those different poses we’ve all built up. There’s a promo video that shows it in action and it looks easy and intuitive to use. Zev0 is also having a birthday sale, and if you buy this or any other of today’s new releases you can get a 65% discount on his store. The Share The Love promotion will also give you a 50% discount on 221 selected items, and 50-60% off poses.
What happened to Thursday 12th February?
It’s a rare day when there’s nothing new at all to see on the DAZ3D website. Yesterday was one of those days, at least it was until very late (European time) when the Dragon Forge showed up. This fun prop by Valandar is imaginative and looks great in the promos with smoke curling from its nostrils (you can add that yourself in postwork). If you buy any other new release (providing it costs over $2, which is going to be everything unless you are an old-style PC member), you’ll get it for free. However, if you just want the forge, it’s not expensive to buy.
And that was that for Thursday 12th, there weren’t even any changes that I noticed to Fast Grab yesterday. HiveWire 3D also had no new additions, although the 80s Arcade was only recently launched and is a DAZ Studio product. It also has a pose pack, and you can get those bundled with the arcade, so check that out if it’s something you can use. Also get your entry in for Ken Gilliland’s Songbird ReMix Open Render Season 2015 contest. The competition is really hotting up with some great art already showing in the entrants’ gallery.
