Looks, it's a freebie outfit! Woo-woo. This collection contains a unique pant with detachable wings, two tops, a metal collar, earrings, and—not pictured—a pair of eyeglasses.
UPDATE: Next texture sets here: fav.me/dd3n3el
and here: fav.me/dd3n6z6
You can see examples of these in use throughout my gallery, and i'll be posting new images soon. Originally, I tried to get Daz to offer this, and received a lot of advice, especially from SickleYield
and a tremendous amount of help from KindredArts
. Seriously, Andy, infinite gratitude. Unfortunately, Daz was, um, skeptical about the commercial prospects of my admittedly high-fashion impulses. After a number of rounds of back-and-forth with another, more conventional outfit, I decided I didn't have the energy to continue to pursue being a PA at this time. As a result, I'm offering this outfit, and my very recently created PhD glasses as a freebie. In a few days, I'll be posting a couple of new texture sets for this as well. (The clay render preview here doesn't show the texture this downloads with, which is a simple white fabric with some edge stitching. The buttons are in the same nickel shader, though. That shader, by the way, is included as an extra freebie. I really adore the look of nickel plating.)
IS THIS HIGH QUALITY RUNTIME GEAR?
The UVs are solid to outstanding—nothing I hate more than bad UVs! Everything is rigged, although probably not to the standards of the better PAs. Because the wings fold down over the belt, that can cause problems even after dForce and I'm not good enough at Daz rigging to fix that (yet). The buttons are hooked up so they should stay in place properly while posing or simming, but I sometimes run into problems. The PhD Glasses have texture zones so you can do a contemporary double-sided look, plus morphs to adjust the earpieces and to fold them for off-the-face posing.
THIS IS FREE? WHAT'S THE BACON?
There is a terms and conditions EULA, which is you can use this for personal and commercial use, including modifying it, but you can't redistribute it. BUT AS A TERM OF USE, YOU MUST REPORT PROBLEMS TO ME. I'm releasing this because I put a lot of work in it and I'd like to see it used, but I also want to get the quality assurance feedback I'd hoped to get from Daz so I can learn how to make better, more useful product. I can't do that if people run into problems and don't tell me. So, please tell me if you have a problem, particularly with dForce or posing. I don't guarantee a solution (you get what you pay for), but I may released an update. Sometime. Also, please let me see your renders with these clothes! It would be extra good if you link to this page so others can find it.
HOW MUCH WORK WAS THIS?
If I tell you, you'll just feel guilty for taking it for free. Let's pretend I knocked it off in a weekend while stoned on THC edibles and watching Mad Men reruns.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
Spanish. Seriously, get your ass Duolingo or something like that and learn Spanish.
Software used: Everything was modeled in Modo Indie and textured in Substance Painter and Photoshop, except for the jewelry and glasses, which don't use texture maps.
