I have a project that I’m hoping to do with either the Gen3 or Gen4 figures, for which I would need both male and female Amish clothing. Has anyone seen this? Googling “poser” and “Amish” only seems to get pages about people who are"Amish posers” (never knew there was such a thing! :o).

Thanks!

For Michael 3, use the three piece suit, choose black for the jacket and pants, use the white shirt hat comes with it, do not use the vest or necktie. http://www.daz3d.com/shop/3-piece-suit-for-m3

Sharecg has a free hat that might work. http://www.sharecg.com/v/38165/gallery/5/3D-Model/straw-hat

For V4, the pioneer outfit should work, you’ll have to adjust the colors. http://www.sharecg.com/v/50758/related/11/Poser/Teris-Everyday-Pioneer-V4/S4

There isn’t really anything as “Amish” clothing…it’s just a plain, simple, unadorned mid/late 1800s style. 

Here’s a dress…

http://www.sharecg.com/v/50758/gallery/11/Poser/Teris-Everyday-Pioneer-V4/S4

A couple of textures for it (no, neither is particularly ‘Amish’, but they can be used as a starting point…)

Any jeans for the guys, as long as they aren’t too tight fitting and have no visible zippers (Amish don’t do zippers). 

As for a shirt…

This one can work, but needs something to tuck it in…

Something essential…

GaryChildress has a couple of more styles of suspenders at ShareCG, along with a pair of ‘military’ pants that could work…

Thanks for the suggestions! That pioneer dress would probably do the trick - I may need to just model a bonnet, as that one and others I’ve seen appear to be a bit more detailed and enveloping of the head than the typical Amish woman’s bonnet I’ve seen in photos.

What’s funny is that these clothes appear to be easier to find for Cookie than as realistic clothing wink.

I only make realistic clothing and I’m currently working on a pilgrim’s outfit which without the cuffs and collar would make a good Amish outfit.
Unfortunately, it’s for Genesis so it might probably not work with previous characters.

That looks good! I’m not a clothing modeler, yet, but I have started on a bonnet - mostly to see how difficult it is wink. It still needs to have the ties, which I figure would need to be Easy-Pose rigged to be the most useful - or I could try to just model them as a static, tied knot that could be adjusted for fit. This is my WIP - I added the pearls because her neck looked bare, plus it added a bit of tension to the otherwise-static image wink.

Your cap is gorgeous, straight out of “Witness”

Thanks! You wouldn’t believe how long it took to render, with the transparency of both the cap and the hair - something like 18-19 hours! :O I also UV-mapped it so I could use a linen texture as a combo transparency/bump map.

I need this bonnet. Where can we get it?

Is she a ghost or is the cap made out of lace?

Most Amish bonnets a sheer-looking. Like this: http://ts2.mm.bing.net/th?id=HN.607990068669579655&w=267&h=181&c=7&rs=1&pid=1.7

Umm…actually those aren’t bonnets.  They are caps…

Here’s a couple of pages that show the differences.  Also there are variations on those, both geographic and sect…

OK. I just know by growing up among the Amish in PA, and even naming my second daughter after an Amish friend of mine, I always heard them called bonnets.

Maybe it’s a geographical thing.

Either way, I need one of these dohickies for a book cover :D

Me too…until I was corrected by some Mennonite friends, one too many times, while living in Ohio…and yes, there are even proper Germanic names for the different ones.  So…one organdy/gauze one, not the more ‘formal’ bonnet.

And yes, they do hold them on with hairpins…
