This is the new home of the file set so you can make your own set as techdollogic has been removed from the internet as no income or donations where made by it for over a year. Thats sad but here is the most requested costume file from it.

If there was a gofund type page i would throw $50 to get it started. My alter ego has a somewhat trafficked page or two on the web i could repost. Im not opposed to paying more, just feel it should be collectively earned. Ill probably cave at the finish line if it reached within $50 of the goal

If you wish to repost this your more than welcome to.
I got tired of maintaining the website and not getting any donations could be my fault for making everything ad free and free to get.
I maintained a "people that donated" section it had 5 people in it after 8 years. my goal was not to make money but just keep it running, as a hobby not a business.
The leg affects was just a oddity on the site which was mostly feed traffic thru deviant art, so i moved the files to deviant art ,you can just hit the download. its seems with the new version of DA its less apparent to do that but its still here for now at least.

the Download Button has moved in dA Eclipse its now a radio button slightly below the picture, a down arrow on a underscore, when you click that you get the files to make your own pair of leg effects not the "art cover page" best of luck.

Here's the original page started by Fanchii-manchii years ago which has a lot of tips and information for your interest. However, you now download the plans from this page. Just click on the download button.

It brings back memories for me as well even though it was only 3 years or so since I discovered it. Since then I have made 5 garments and here is a recent picture of me wearing my full size garment...

The curves are wonderful!

Also I could not put the file into the original post, i tried this first, LOL cool little rug you got there!
Anyhow if you see anyone post anything NSFW or the likes in the comments section let me know so i can strike it down. dA is still one of the weirdest places on the net but they are not above removing things with complaints, i have had many many things taken down that where fully clothed no skin and if you repost them you risk losing your account.
So lets keep the good work up and keep a eye out on the comments of both pages. keep the dream alive.

Absolutely, Franchii. The LegAffects has been such a huge influence for me and my presentations and is just so darn clever! I've had to augment a few areas, as Quarrla himself identified, but the proof is in the pudding as you can create a killer figure and gorgeously feminine shapely pair of legs with this concept!

have you thought about selling already made legaffects on etsy or ebay?

Nope, They are really something more personal to each person
not sure a one size fits all or anything like that.
Some people use different foam thinckness ,different panty hose and or number of layers. some people make half thickness pairs and 3x thickness pairs and the amount of hips you want might be a little or alot and you could be skinny medium or fat, you could be tall, average or tiny.
Plus no one wants to pay for others works they always want just the bare materials cost. Time is money and my time at work makes me at least $20-30 a hour depending, so i would have to charge a fortune for them to make my wage,,aka its not worth it for me or for them.
Plus like fursuiters get ripped off ,where people buy a 3000 dollar suit then back charge there credit card. The seller if F'ed. I dont need all that.

Franchii-manchii is exactly right! It is very time consuming, labour intensive, and even the freight would be prohibitive. Furthermore, you really do have to tailor the garments to your body size. Plus I have done a few mods to mine to make them a bit better. As well you do have to do a bit of regular maintenance, like re-gluing some of the padding every now and then etc and a customer would rightly not expect to have to do so oneself...

Quarrla, the creator of LegAffects designed it as a free concept for others to enjoy, so in the spirit of that, its better to make your own. However, as I am pretty familiar with it all, having made 5 garments, I am happy to help anyone who decides to create their own LegAffects. Personally, I have found the manufacture of these to be very rewarding projects and satisfying achievements, so there is that as well. If you haven't done so already, have a look at my photostream and you will see me modelling my LegAffects garments more often that not!!! There is a sample in an above comment...

Thanks for keeping this alive despite the extenuating circumstances, Franchii-manchii. I have written you a reply to your note and will be uploading some pretty saucy pics to DA tomorrow featuring my full thickness LegAffects garment so the dream will live on!!!

well its the fact that its a very used file that i wish to keep it alive. I just hope this does it and it dont get stripped free from the web for no reason. I know times are different for the LGBQ Ect. now and they dont shame folks so fast. and to think i have never made a set.

I'm just disappointed that there was so many other worthy files and information that you've had to discard when you closed your website. You may not have physically made any sets Franchii, but in a way you were the midwife for all of the ones that have been created from those who downloaded the plans from your pages...including my garments!!! Anyway, I'm sure that they will be safe here on DA now.

once they outlast the first 90 days you know its likely here to stay.
For Monster Hunter Armors and Weapons I had thousands of hours and alot of me invested I feel those who wanted what i offered likely got it.
I boosted about 2000 different files with further access to about 9000 more not listed on the site. It was like a midlife crisis to close the site. somehow its still open, i think it will hang out till early October or November 12th which is the official end of terms of service and the point where i would have to renew or die! and its set to fail payment. the monthly was paid thru this months end soooo we will see if it hangs that long. I tried ads on there for 2 weeks once with google ad cents and the site got pop up and other things i did not want it was BS when i called google out on it they said it was the advertisers links and code not theirs. so i pulled it.

All my friends and family come in my garage, which is always open, but when you get to the door there is a picture of Bowsette with a looking down on you sort of look and it says
"no politics and no drama" its the house policy and everyone reads it and understands i dont need those things. its funny how many people come over and look this sign right in the face and tell me i was about to say "XYZ" but i respect that sign on the door. i just say "thanks" i know google cant see this but i a said no to their dirty money and tactics just as its not welcome in the house, after all its what makes a house a home!

I just had a look at your website and having 57,940 visits is a pretty awesome number of people who have come to see you and perhaps download some plans. Golly there is so much there!!! I won't comment on certain companies like the one you have mentioned, but completely avoid all of them as much as possible as I value my privacy...

58K is not bad but the site was been up for years my first 2 years where very poor then it happened and people poored in for a while.
then it was steady for about 3 years then it declined steady in a per year. so you wrote me on the 16th its now the 30th 15 days or half a month 120 visits not counting you or me visiting in 2 weeks, 60 a week or about 8-9 a day ,thou thats something and might be very good for a unchanging site. I just cant keep the site open for that if I was about to get 1/2000 a cent for each visitor it would currently equal 150 a year which would hold the site open. but there is no foreseeable way to do that without ads or selling something on the site. No one has donated even a buck or 2 for years. so it will be closing. its sad. but im ok with it.
