I. Create the high heels shoes 3D model.
  1. Pose Genesis 3 Female to the pose as she wears a pair of high heels by using "Foot Tip Toes" and "Toes Spread" pose controls.
  2. Select "Joint Editor Tool."
  3. Select Genesis 3 Female, right click, then select "Edit"->"Bake Joint Rotations..."  The objective of that is to turn the JCM's to 0.
  4. Export Genesis 3 Female in the pose into an OBJ.
  5. Import that OBJ into a 3D Modeller.
  6. Model the shoes around the posed Genesis 3 Female.
  7. Export the finished shoes model as an OBJ.
II. Prepare the scene for making the conforming shoes.
  1. Create a new scene and load Genesis 3 Female.
  2. Pose Genesis 3 Female as the pose used for making the high heels shoes.
  3. Select "Joint Editor Tool."
  4. Select Genesis 3 Female, right click, then select "Edit"->"Bake Joint Rotations..."  The objective of that is to turn the JCM's to 0.

III. Turn the shoes model into conforming shoes for Genesis 3 Female.
  1. Import the shoes model.
  2. Use "Transfer Utility", select Genesis 3 Female as the source with the item shape as default; select Shoes as the target with the item shape as default.  Do not select fit to.  The objective of that is to turn the imported shoes into a figure.
  3. Go to the scene tab and click on the name of Genesis 3 Female.  Hold Ctrl key, then click the name of shoes figure.  This select both Genesis 3 Female and the shoes figure.  Noted that the order is important.
  4. Right click, then select "Edit"->"Transfer Rigging (Figure Space)."  It will get the shoes conform to Genesis 3 Female.
  5. Delete Genesis 3 Female from the scene.
  6. Load Genesis 3 Female into the scene.
  7. Apply the pose used for making the high heels shoes to Genesis 3 Female.
  8. Fit the shoes figure to Genesis 3 Female.  It should fit.
  9. (Optional) Remove all bones for the big toe and small toes.  I found it is helpful because I don't want to see the toes portion of the shoes deforms.
  10. Test various rotations of the foot bones.  Fix weight if it is necessary.
  11. Save the shoes figure.
IV. Make wearables (optional)
  1. Create a new scene and load Genesis 3 Female.
  2. Pose Genesis 3 Female as the pose used for making the high heels shoes.
  3. With Genesis 3 Female selected, load the shoes and it should be fitted automatically to Genesis 3 Female.
  4. Select "File"->"Save As"->"Wearable(s) Preset...," then select the shoes, select pose, select the modified parameters only.
  5. Save it as the same name as the shoes figure, it will overwrite the old shoes figure loader file.
