I quite like Frostbite

LOL!! Sweet =D

When I buy skimpwear, I mostly plan to use the items for mix’n'matching with other pieces for a more “modest” look, too, or for an occasional render featuring a subculture member (goths, punks etc). Here are the commercial ones which I found pretty daring but liked enough to buy:

http://www.daz3d.com/earane-outfit - this one I’m sorta obsessed with, it’s one of the few outfits I ever bought texture packs for… and a lot of them!!
http://www.daz3d.com/warriorclass-for-a3
http://www.daz3d.com/g-i-girl
http://www.daz3d.com/rebel-forever
http://www.daz3d.com/nerd3d-bike-gurl-42 - lucky enough to have caught this in an old Fast Grab for about quarter of the price =D

http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/yhis-clothing-pack-5-for-v4/53693
http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/melanthe-for-v4-a4-g4/90259 - got this one for the character primarily, but the clothing was a nice bonus

http://www.runtimedna.com/Night-Slayers-Mesh-Tank-for-M4.html - for the males =)
http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=93317 - as well

these aren’t 100% skimpy, but borderline IMO:

Aery Soul’s “Classic Fantasy” is great for those guilty pleasure cheesecake fantasy renders, but sadly seems to be no longer on sale. (Here’s one of my images featuring it). Garee’s Martian Princess is a possible alternative (as featured in this render).

The V4 Forest Dryad outfit is also nice if you want something leafy (here’s another example image).

If you’re more into science-fiction, Brazen is pretty good (as seen in this image, supplemented with V4 Basic Wear).

And if you want it steampunk-y, try Strapped Suit (of which, quite by chance, I just happen to have another image).

I like how you provided a render for every single outfit, and “quite by chance” made me smile by some reason ^______^”

pwiecek, what figure do you need a jacket for? And do you have any particular model in mind?

wendy♥catz, O_O I’d never thought of that use of Frostbite. Hope he won’t get a flu!

As for Amethyst Fantasy several people mentioned, I’m eyeing it too from time to time. I do like the skirt but I can’t see myself using bra anytime soon -_-

Mustakettu85, quite a list. I have some of those, and there is a strange thing about Earane that I also have all or almost all texture packs for this outift but I never used it for any render ^^”

Right now I have a full load of non-graphics classes so I’m not really using ANY character. V4/A4 or A3 would be the most useful, especially if it worked well in crossdresser.  Definitely not Genesis.

Just to re-iterate, I’m talking about a biker style jacket with a collar and long sleeves with cuffs. Optionally, zippered pockets and a belted “waist”

Greetings,
Oooh, @Mustakettu85, thanks for the pointer to SAV’s Hot Men clothing.  I love that kind of shirt.  I wonder how well it’ll convert to Genesis…

For the jacket, I WOULD be using this one,

http://www.daz3d.com/crazy-nights-14672

except the way it is UV mapped makes it very hard to use a trans-parency to crop it.

But now that I think of it, I MAY re-map and re-texture it.

My favorite kind of Skimpwear is the kind that does not ride up my butt. I will pretty much wear anything butt thongs. I adore tassels and frilly hems, it helps hide my hairiness.

You’re welcome =) I haven’t tried it on genesis yet… I’m actually waiting for when I’m able to buy Sickle’s Rigging and Morphing System before attempting to play with Genesis again - kinda want the best possible experience =)

I simply went through my account histories on the three major sites =D As for the “smaller businesses”... this one might qualify, too: http://www.mec4d.com/store/index.php?_a=product&product_id=99

For me, the strange thing is that I seem to only use Chohole’s textures for Earane =)

...the only skimpwear I have came bundled with characters like A5 (Bow Dress), Nata, Hitomi, She Freak4 (string bikinis), and of course, the “venerable” V4 Basicwear (which was admittedly a step up from the “airbrushed on” lavender bikini she loaded in with). 

Never used any of this in a pic and probably never will.

Now the Troll Loincloth, that is a total fashion statement.

That just makes me want to revive the Michael Initiative thread…

If skimpwear sells well, then that’s what’ll keep getting made. 

I suppose it depends on context - if it’s a situation where little clothing would be expected, then it wouldn’t be skimpwear at all, it would simply be appropriate… try wearing skimpwear in a sauna - suddenly character is actually overdressed   wink


That said, there are accepted fantasy art conventions that virtually dictate beautiful women fight monsters wearing armour that protects their wrists & ankles but exposes pretty much everything else, and the barbarian warrior wears a thong or loincloth.  This started back in the days when erotic art was socially ‘verboten’ for the plebs and was a way of beating the elitists at their own game by tapping into popular culture instead of remaining within the classical culture preferred by those elitists that felt the plebs couldn’t handle any form of artistic eroticism (many of those condemning ‘immoral’ popular art had their own secret collections of erotica).


My personal preference is to ‘subvert’ normal clothes e.g. applying shaders and strategic opacity adjustment of mat zones, as I delight in the unexpected or the ‘oops’ type wardrobe malfunctions ohh    ...but even so, I still find uses for skimpwear, albeit I’m fairly selective about which outfits I’ll buy… it’ll actually sometimes be one element of the costume or the extra props that I’ll get them for (specifically to kit-bash with other stuff) rather use as a complete outfit.  The better the mat zones i.e. multiple zones split in useful places (sleeves, cuffs, hems etc separate zones), the higher the chance I’ll use it somewhere. 

Suggested scenarios for skimpwear:
nightclubbing, performers, go-go dancers etc
intimate encounters
slaves, escorts, prisoners, concubines
gladiators & arena/theatre entertainers

If you don’t do scenes along the lines of the above, then you might want hold fire on hitting that purchase button until you’ve weighed up if it’s money well spent or not.


Yeah, I know, once I start talking then it’s blah blah blah       LOL    LOL    LOL

Is that a re-release of an older Rendo product of theirs?  It looks weirdly familiar (all the gorgeous piping work on the arms and legs especially).


I’m halfway tempted to buy it for my Genesis guys.  I can do my own package morphs easily enough now.

I really like The Sentry (http://www.daz3d.com/the-sentry). It works pretty good on Genesis. I’ve never used all of it (or any other skimpwear) at one time on a single figure, but the items are really useful for kit-bashing.
