It’s called a Poodle skirt, and it was usually a full skirt like the picture above shows, not the narrower skirt that DAZ is using it on. Though I suppose it could be.

Oh yes, the fuller the better. She’s often told me when talking about “the good old days” that you wanted them like that so they would twirl really well when you were dancing. A big flare of crinolines when you whirled around to Buddy Holly on the jukebox on a Saturday night was really, really cool apparently. Got all the boy’s attention too, I’ll bet.

Yeppers, you win that bet.

I remember, in the mid-70’s, we were at a pizza place, and there were groups of people, outside, dressed in 50’s going-out clothes.
Coming from or going to something…

This one girl spontaneously did an accelerating twirl that blew me away. It started ballooning right away, the twirl started slow, and built.

That thing just launched - outward more than upward. I mean upward enough… but also the motion itself was downright artistic.

They ought to bring that theory back. grin


I saw plenty of those skirts when I was a tyke, I’m sure. The TV twirls were deliberately sedate...

I missed the 50’s and the poodle skirts, but I’ve always been fond of full skirts. Narrow tight skirts make me feel confined and like I can’t move well. A nice full skirt however, now that’s another story, not to mention that you can curl up in a chair or a couch and cover up your legs with a full skirt. LOL

Definitely more outward than upward when it accelerated. I have a theory the boys never stopped hoping for more lift the faster she twirled. My mama could dance! Nearly 70 now and she’s still able to hold her own against all us youngsters when they play the Rock ‘n’ Roll. cool smirk

That’s, uhhh… more than idle speculation. smile

My memory tells me she unexpectedly matched my ambition. But maybe I’m remembering extrapolation.

I’d bet the 50’s girls would automatically, effortlessly, keep it right to the edge of frustration, but the 70’s girls weren’t always as demure.

(On the other hand, in the miniskirt era, they’d never slip up, no matter what they were doing. And that was from day one. My admiration matched my frustration).

That’s so cool! cool smile

Ha! We’re just lucky there’s no place around here to go roller skating. Because I’m positive she’d be up to that again if there were.

Because, although it shows DAZ 3D as the vendor it is actually a 3rd party add on, and DAZ 3D are not allowed to sell it at less than the price stipulated by the “Owner”. This is the reason that this plugin is not available in the free download of Daz Studio, and has to be bought separately.

Ah thanks for the info.

Does Decimator work on genesis? I saw some comments when I was searching to the effect that people have problems. Does anyone use it? I was hoping to use it to speed up my rendering which is so slow, if it does crash.

Genesis can be Decimated as well, any mesh figure can as far as I know, but Genesis already has a Base resolution which makes it about 19k, which is about a quarter of normal figures like V4 and M4, so that should help anyway.  Maybe not so good for close-ups.

V4 and M4 have lores OBJ versions, at 1k, 4k, 8k and 17k, and people use these for crowd scenes, again not close up.  Have you tried these?

Shoot, I’m not certain I could still skate. My balance isn’t what it used to be.

Otherwise, I’d say I hope I’m doing that well… smirk
