    O yes, and it looks great!

    And it works like a charm, thanks for the notice :)

    But one question (maybe asked before, can't find it )

    What is the name of the outfit (red/black leather) in the promo images.

    I can't find in in the description, I maybe have a blond moment, but I can't see it.

    I do love the outfit though.. -lol-

    Thanks!

    Please note, there is (at the time of writing) currently a mislabel on the compatibility of the BUNDLE. The individual items are all correctly stating V4, but the bundle says Genesis. The bundle is wrong, it is for V4.

    I'd like to know where to get that oufit also. I'd like to get the same look as in the promotional pictures of Ksenia and it together.

    Thanks

    but it can fit genesis, right?

    Anyhow , in the detail the bundle contest is listed:
    ◦Japanese Style Fashion Lily V4
    ◦Harajuku for Japanese Style Fashion Lily V4V4

    This does looks like V4, on the otherhand 'V4V4' I'm not sure about -lol-

    Thanks for the notice

    Via Autofit and/or the Transfer Utility yes. It does not come with a Genesis native version.

    I also looked all over for that outfit but could not find it either. Would love to know.

    [Also, would love to see her morph for Genesis, hint hint! And the leather outfit... and the Lily Harajuku bundle ;-) ]

    Edit: Oh nice, thanks for that info Thorne!

    What a keen eye you have to assembly such an ensemble.

    Thank you for the info...

    yes I feel she looks so cute and cool.

    I feel it is good new products for V4 and old generation figure made as new products.

    but why same moprh sets for genesis does not exist now?

    just counts how many morphs , (contents) clothings are sold for V4 M4.
    and compare genesis products , in daz shop.

    I think as If DAZ want every customer should buy "generation X" for use genesis with V4 morphs and contents?

    It is obviously kind for user of genesis (it means bese figure of daz studio 4)
    to make original sets for genesis with products for V4.

    I think everyone was asking about the Steam Fairy & maybe the feathers since they didn't see the rest of the stuff til your answer.


    Your render looks a lot better than the actual promo's for Steam Fairy.

    I am trying to contain my frustration, I really am, however this new system is hurting my forehead (head banging on desk).

    I was so overjoyed to see a V4 product to use my PC $6 on, and it was a Thorne girl too, that it immediately went in my cart. Looked at the bundle but decided to wishlist it and ponder. Two hours later the newsletter arrived in my Inbox (which is still not showing right but that's another story) telling me I could have bought the bundle at 50% off if I had bought them at the same time.

    Under the old system I would have a coupon code I could use retrospectively as I had bought Ksenia. With this system I have two choices. Try and get a refund from a probably still inundated Customer Service and try and make sure that I retain the $6 coupon and rebuy both items or I can just not buy the bundle. Path of least resistance at the moment I'm afraid and lost sale for DAZ.

    I'm not trying to bash and feel really sorry for all employees and moderators as it must still be hell at the moment but this is just not a better mechanic for delivering discounts.

    Really happy to have Ksenia, really frustrated to have missed out on the discount.

    BTW DAZ may want to add 'DAZ' as a valid word in their own spell checker :)

    "utter adorable cuteness is by me" Truth in advertising. Every time I think I have enough V4 characters, something like this comes along. And the bundle offer. Thanks to Thorne and Daz. http://www.daz3d.com/forums/smileys/# .

    Wow, Ksenia is really cute :)

    I'm wondering, though, which of the promo images for her were made with the Poser Mats and which with the DS Mats?

    Well, I got both Ksenia and the Lily Dress because I couldn't withstand the cuteness, even though I have very little support for V4 in my runtime (once I'd buckled under the cuteness, I also buckled under for the good deal).


    I would love to see Ksenia's morph offered for Genesis as well. Since I have so few V4 characters, I've never felt much pressure to get GenX or even the V4/M4 shapes for genesis, though I've let myself float the idea that I would get both just to be able transfer Ksenia. I convinced myself that would probably be a little insane.


    In case anyone is interested, this is what Ksenia's skin map looks like on straight-up V5 (on left). It is a great skin, though I really want that morph too. On the right is V4 with the bits of her morph that don't require Morphs++ injected, creating what little of Ksenia that I'm able to do with my lack of V4 products. Also, the dress is fit to genesis with the Transfer Utility... it's workable though it doesn't quite stand up to the native V4 fit (which is fantastic), so I have to think about it. Happy 4th everyone, and thanks Thorne for the neat character, I'm hoping I might get to use more of her some way later on..

    Greetings,
    I loved this character, so even though I'm a pretty dedicated Genesis user, I picked it up and converted it using GenX.


    Attached is my first render with it (13 hours, 43 minutes, 30 seconds). It's probably one of the better looking renders I've ever done.


    Thank you for this model... Here's Ksenia rendered under Genesis, with Photo Studio Lights, Nightshayde Gloves and Navel Ring, Miyu Skirt and Top, JS Armband, and the thigh belt and dagger from...something else. I forget what. :)


    It's awesome, and converts REALLY well to Genesis!

    Very nice render, Morgan. Really wish I could afford to spend the money to get GenX right now.
    I did decide to go ahead and finally get the V4M4 genesis shapes before the sale ended, just in case I end up needing them... ;-)

    It was that cuteness that sold me right off. I'd already expended my budget but she is a Must Have so I swiped a little from the food budget. I think I even have someplace to use her ... all dressed (sweater & jeans or something) but with that sweet precious face exposed.

    Here is Ksenia's skin on a Genesis character I've been working on for a project. It's a work in progress, but I liked how this test came out using her, so I thought I would share.
