Snuggle up, we’re not out of the cold snap yet (nice to see the nights getting lighter though). 6 new releases today will help see you through.
Cool Climate for G2F is a fantastic outfit from that talented clothing creator Aave Nainen. You will never regret investing in Aave’s items, with the small extra cost more than offset by the content. You get a stack of draping morphs with every product. This one has 40, and includes 20 poses too (the other 20 are those that everyone has for free with the G2F base). But let’s get to the outfit itself. It’s an attractive, multi-piece winter look that has jeans, boots, a turtleneck sweater, and that smart, long coat. A classic look that won’t date and will look good on all ages in your G2F family. It has fits for the DAZ Original girls plus some extra characters from Lyoness, and will auto-fit to your other characters. I honestly think this is Aave’s best work yet, and believe me I will not rest until I own this item!
Want to recreate the playing in leaves promo, or do something similar? Then you could do with the Leaf Collection Vol. 1-2 from ARTCollaborations. This is a merchant resource too, so you can use it to make and sell your own trees. It covers all seasons and of course the autumnal leaves are especially nice. There are 50 each of oak and maple leaves in this pack.
Your characters will look nice and warm if you use Denki Gaka’s Fun With Yarn – Nifty Knitting Shaders. I’ve worked a lot with shader presets and these strike me as being very good in how uniform they are and how well they tile. Some of the gradients and colour combos look a little garish for my own taste, but there’s so much choice, just use those that suit your needs. The weaves themselves look excellent and I think you’d get a lot of use out of these.
Lyoness fans, there’s a new young lady from this creator today. Her name is Maribel and she’s a gorgeous girl with big eyes. The lower half of her face is realistically created, making her look believable as a real woman (I’m not a fan of the pointy-chinned faerie look for humans). I’m liking the character work we’re getting from Lyoness for G2F. Trini, the doll character, was great and her real-world girls are both beautiful in appearance and convincing as actual people.
I wonder if Maribel wants to model the Luxury Heels for G2F for us? EmilyPaige and FUNtasi created this footwear, combining stiletto heels with a fun bow decoration and lots of material choices. Or, for something completely different, you might want to pick up Facial Hair for G2M by Matari3D. 3 style and 5 colour options give you lots of choice here.
