Welcome to the August freebie challenge.

The theme is “For my summer Vacation I went to…”.

You decide and you render it.

2. Maximum of 3 paid for items allowed.  M4; V4; Genesis and M4 & V4’s Morphs ++ are not counted towards your freebies or paid for items.

3.  The sofware allowed is DAZ Studio; Poser or Bryce.  You can use any free rendering program as long as you provide a link (it will not count as a freebie). The “Reality” plug-in for Lux renderer will count as a paid for item.

I remember the teacher asking me what I did for summer vacation.

I told her and was suspended for two weeks.

I will need to review the TOS for this one.

In my own defense it was not my fault.

If that bell hadn’t gone off I would have never started running ..
and slipped …
and bumped that cart …
that rolled through the big window …
and ended up in the fountain …

darn bell.


But I swear to you that display manikin was like that when I found her.


And that made me wonder why they don’t call that model a Ladykin.

Banner image is kind of useless right now.  Who knows when we’ll have that functionality available again…if ever?

Do we have to register to see things here?  For July I only see two images on one page.  Am I doing something wrong?

I’m open for someone to create “standard” icons for the thumbnails.  By default the first entry in the album will be used.

I’m only seeing the first 5 thumb images per sub page.  The rest only have a text link.  I’m using Firefox 3.5.

Do a refresh, that’ll grab the rest.  The metrics gathering software is causing the “extra” links to timeout before your browser displays them.  Once I can get some metrics for tweaking the site, this “side effect” will go away.

Here are some thumbnails I made in PSP for the standard icons.  If the other ETOs like it we can use them or if anybody has suggestions I’d be willing to try something different.

Edited to add a couple more
