I agree, it’s really good.  It is the very definition of ‘Smart Casual’, and the top could be used for so many things.

EDIT:
The pun was unintententional, but it is very apt grin

the blank bikini bottom test dance

that’s the bikini bottom, rigged as a figure, no morphs, so today probably i’ll be able to convert it to a Genesis asset/figure

there’s just one brief poke-through event when the thighs and buttock side-side rotation is extreme

well actually there’s an other one *mumble*

i’m not very knowledgeable concerning fitting clothes in Daz Studio 4.5
that’s the result of fitting the A3 bikini bottom to Genesis ... not really useful so maybe i’ll concentrate of finishing the top and bottom for Aiko3

Looks great so far.  I’m always interested in new Aiko3 stuffs.

It looks great!  Does it require many JCM’s?  The test dance animation is amazing too.  “it’s for Amy only”?  For me? red face

i’ll probably post the bikini/bottom without morphs, without JCMs, ... the same as used in the animated gifs dance

since almost everyone has DS4.5 it’s possible to transfer the morphs from Aiko

later on i’ll probably re-publish the bikini bottom with the (corrected) morphs

and i’ll post the dance cycle animation ( it’s a very mathematical dance using sines and cosines )

my Aiko based actress was named Amy by Posette in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-S3NWXT7vI
but since you’re an Amy too, the dance must be made just-for-you ... too smile

progress report

worked a bit on the leg-sit-or—walk morph

for small leg-joints rotations, like during a walk it’s not needed though

... ooops this is meant for the bodycon dress thread !

crop top ( with racerback )  news

a cone follows a row of vertices of the crop-top mesh

this will be used to re-generate the crop-top for each of the 20-something morphs that will be included

when you’ll apply a morph like “Breastsize4” or “Breastsize1” the crop top will keep its nice tight “tent” behavior

instead of looking glued on to the skin ... which is what i’d obtain using morphs provided by Daz Studio’s 3’s morph follower

( the results were not that bad though as you could see with the mcjA3Le03i )

check out the Yoda-worthy morph, regularizing the crop-top’s mesh smile

once the “fibers” of the crop top have been normalized and straightened
“convex hull” processing was used to put them under tension
so we get a sort of tent effect or bridges
a minimum of 1.5mm of distance is maintained
( 1 mm gave some poke-through )

see see the difference?
science ladies and gentlemen science

( breastsize3 morph created using scripts )

image 2—the breastsize4 morph didn’t work as well, you could say my tailor-robot didnt crouch enough to work correctly on the under…

image3—breastsize2 no problem

image 4—breastsize 1

image 5—Cleavage—i was expecting that one to be problematic, it’s not!

i still have to show tell my tailor-robot to adjust the waist band and the back

excel graph showing an issue ( don’t worry it will be resolved ) wherein the convex-hull treatment ( tent effect ) isn’t working properly

note that it works fine most of the times but something’s happening on the bridge over the Clavicle Lake

once that’s resolved i will be able to quickly complete the morphs

( crossing fingers on the collarBend morph )

great news, a hurdle on the road to the crop top has been overcome

the convex-hull ( tent / bridge effect ) did not work correctly because :

i developed it initially for the bodycon dress

the dress is a stack of tightened horizontal loops

for the crop-top’s bra we have a series of vertical ribbons, a bit like bows


figure 1 : Here you see Aiko3 with the “Stylized” morph at 100%

figure 2 : the back strap will probably just hover over Aiko’s back

figure 3 - Blender render details - the nice environment background comes from http://www.hdrlabs.com/sibl/archive.html
a large cube of light gives us soft highlights on the skin and clothes
