over here—-> https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts3/mcja3wedges

they are shoes for Aiko2’s default body

no morphs except a few bend/twist adjustments

———————————————

here are the making-of images

1- the reference images - Brisa Material Girl - Sold at The Bay.

2 - the sole which ( needs reshaping )

3 - using ‘‘conver hull’’ processing i was able to make the toe strap look tightly fit, not loose and soft and glued to the skin

4 - started laying the 4 other straps

5 - idem

just a the-making-of-sneak-peek

a script with the help of the mcjCollider plugin pushed the straps against the foot

another script will force the straps to have a very precise and constant width

i’ll also use the occasion to make the straps wider

and another existing script will build the inflated version of the straps

nice look forward to seeing these done, if smart props might even be able to repurpose them for the V4 girls….maybe?

unfortunately i dont have experience in smart-props

so they’ll probably be very simple props, with a pose file to position Aiko3 in them

similar to 2 other pair of shoes on my site
https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts2/mcjaiko3sandals

i may add a morph or 2 if bending the foot joints causes poke-through
but i don’t want to add the full complement of morphs or make new versions

because ... i want to get back to finishing the Aiko crop-top and bikini bottom
those two will be fit’able to Genesis i think

some progress in the shoe making department
the strap widths were corrected, also the straps are ‘‘squarier’’ unfortunately, just a bit too much what’s the word ... sharp

with the little i know i have created smart props by simply parenting a prop like a shoe prop to the body part it needs to fit to position re-size whatever until it looks good then save it to the library. haven’t done it in a while in P7 but in P4 the dialog box during the saving process asked if you wanted to make it a smart prop and you click yes and voila.
Next time you want to add the saved prop to a similar body prop in position for either the same figure or similar it Smart Props to the body part it was meant for.
Though for A3, these cool prop shoes might be able to be repositioned and re-sized to say A4 or V4 and Smart Prop saved to the library for easier re-application later.
Just an explanation and not something you need do for these…I was just thinking out loud.  :(

thanks! now i know where to look. I have poser 7,

it could be useful because sometimes people have trouble installing the shoes even with the pose-file and instructions

latest state of the wedges ( gold plated ! ) the straps are pretty good,
i still have to improve the innersole and find a good-looking way of tying the straps under the innersoles and at the heels

the UVs ...took hours !

there’s 1 material per strap, the inner-sole, wedge and sole have 3 materials: top / bottom / sides, the heel piece has 2

for those who want to create lining, add stitching , add studs etc etc and of course prints

—-

tomorrow i add the 1 oe 2 morphs and i publish them !
