Well, here’s an interesting proof of concept that decided to present itself: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/la-robe-de-gala/72815
Casual shirt and a bra/halter top thing presented in the main promo image.  The actual product is a dress.  Simple material zones more or less created 3 different things to use ranging within the covered and skimpy spectrum.  Granted this is V4 rather than Genesis but the actual example is still perfectly sound.


Its GOT to be the wrong main promo image. Everything is about a dress CR2 and mats - only the main promo image is a top & pants. Now if Rendo offered a money-back guarantee I’d snap it up in a sec just in case.

But no - methinks mistak-o.

EDIT: ... or the tops are dress mats and the pants aren’t included. Its simply not possible geometrically speaking for a dress to become pants, much like I will never be a millionaire.

Oh, I figured the pants weren’t included.  There’d have to be some insane dark sorcery going on to pull that off.  I’ll probably ask the vendor to clarify but I figured those were simple material zones since the geometry looks similar.

I’m perfectly in favor of scanty clothing, sort of scanty clothing or full-on heavy armor, provided there is parity.


It’s when a female outfit is an exploitative parody of a functional male outfit that I hate it.  If they’re both wearing basically barbarian loincloths with shoulderpads, I’m down with that (in fact I’ve made outfits like that).  If the male version is a full military uniform, I don’t want to see a female version with a miniskirt.  That’s the stuff that makes me nuts, not things like Bean Sidhe at Rendo or Andromeda here that are just pure fantasy (and that are matched by things like Dark Priest for M5).

Well, we can also use the excuse that it all goes back to Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo. They started it! grin Between Conan, Tarzan, Vampirella, and the Princess of Mars, Frazetta was certainly an equal opportunity employer.

Weren’t the ancient Olympic Games held in the nude? Wasn’t that a key plot device in “Chariots of Fire?” gulp

Yep…it’s their fault.  (Oh how my mom hated those Borris posters when I was a teen… LOL ...of course, being a lad in my teens they were the best.)

Yep…

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Yes, and I can’t help thinking that in the current era of high-tech performance-enhancing outfits, the IOC might want to consider reviving the tradition.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.
