    Mild oddity.

    I finally broke down and bought Valandar's Jabberwok. It's one of the old ones that comes in a .zip file. However, it didn't come alone. Inside the .zip file was another archive containing the .zip of Bobbie25's Evening Style dress.

    I've already got that one, so no harm done. But I don't know how a dress could have got inside an archive for a monster. The monster certainly couldn't have worn it.

    (Have reported)

    And why shouldn't the monster wear an evening gown if he so wishes - on the other hand he may have eaten the girl who was wearing it.

    Does anyone have any experience of Genesis Alive or Genesis Expressions and Face Ani-blocks? I'm on the fence about getting them.

    I have Genesis Alive and it is great for adding that "missing" piece to animations. Teamed up with the Muscularity morphs it is awesome.

    Good morning from Western Australia, Saturday morning! :) My latest item is out, whee! And thanks for looking! :lol:

    Interesting that copy approval removed my line about it being inspired by Evil Queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Hunstman - must be to avoid any commercial coat-tailing accusations. It looks nothing like her hair in the movie but was inspired by Charlize Theron's character... I can watch her for hours, she's lovely... don't know why they wasted so much movie time on that snow white chick. lol

    AprilYSH, that is about the coolest thing I've ever seen! You rock! :D

    aww thanks heehee :lol:

    AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!

    It says if you buy AprilYSH's Calais hair you will get a 25% discount on Lyon hair.

    Bought the Calais hair then tried to buy the Lyon hair.

    The discount code was accepted (after several tries) but it isn't shown when the Lyon order goes through to Paypal. At which point I cancelled the order.

    Is this a glitch in the system or what?

    I'll email DAZ to fix that, it is meant to be a permanent co-promo between Lyon and Calais - I'm pretty sure it's glitched because the code was set up in the old store and needs to be redone in the new store. Thanks for the heads up! If you did end up buying, please send in a support ticket to reimburse you the difference :-)

    Anyway, please indulge me while I repost my favourite tex set for Yolande, the almost-peacock green set :lol: ... (hope this works, I'm on a borrowed macbook and not sure if this looks right...)

    I never went to see "Snow White and the Huntsman" because I was so put off by brown-haired, tan-skinned, bad-acting Kristen Stewart as Snow White, but I agree that from the promos Charlize Theron's queen looked fantastic--problematically so, since she was clearly the fairest in the land and the mirror was lying if he said otherwise. ;) I may have to put this on my Netflix queue when it's available.

    Did you see Mirror, Mirror? I want some PAs to get inspired by the costuming in that film. ;)

    lol yes, true about the mirror lying!!! hahaha
    No, I missed Mirror Mirror, will try to remember that one next trip to hire store... yes, a real, walk into and grab a physical dvd hire store lol we're still old school in this neck of the woods!

    I forgot to mention, probably should start a commercial thread... there's an easter egg in Yolande mainly for Calais buyers... it's in the textures folder... ;-)

    My apologies, just a bit of a wait on this one - waiting to hear if this kind of cross-product discount is doable in the new store at this time or something they are still to add. I know it's not much when the items are already at 50% off but when off sale I think buyers appreciate the 25% off... so crossed fingers!
    Thanks in advance for your patience!!! :-)

    I think you'll enjoy Mirror, Mirror. The costuming is to die for, and the dialogue is all very witty--and I think Lily Collins was the absolute perfect* Snow White with her Celtic fair skin and black hair. :)

    *With the caveat that she's occasionally a little too American for her fairytale role. But then, everyone in the movie is American, so it's not that distracting. ;)

    The outfit is Lily Nymph for Genesis by Mada, the character body skin is a V3 by samildinach at rendo converted to V4 to use on Genesis, adn the face is the easter egg that April snuck into Yolande hair. Heh. Oh and background is from Sveva's Darkness Falls II.

    I call this picture "Squee to the hills so folk singers can be inspired by it."

    I think my PA sale and life may be complete.

    I can't say for sure because I don't have the dates, but if it was released within the past 90 days it won't be on sale. At least, I think it's 90 days - anyone confirm for sure?

    The announcement ( http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/6712_4/ ) says that anything released within the last 60 days (in rather small print, but it is there) is excluded. So I'm guessing that this was released within that time frame.

    Does anybody know if there is a way to determine the sizes of products? Renderosity provides them, and Daz used to. I'm looking to buy some AprilYSH hair products, but given a style I basically like would like small files, 30Mb or less. I'm not looking for monster 70-100mb files.

    This is what I was looking at:

    Devanar Hair,
    Blaine Hair,
    Osean Hair,

    There was one more. I don't have it now.

    I suppose I could always buy the productsand then return the ones I really don't want before downloading them, but that's just doesn't seem nice.

    Thank you.

    JakiBlue, thanks for the character portrait, spotted her on facebook and loved it! ;)

    Ippotamus, aww cool, I really enjoyed that set and so nice to see it brought out to play :lol:

    *smacks forehead* how did I miss that connection... I liked that movie too, predictable but was still engrossing.

    As far as I knew DAZ split any content product installers that were bigger than 50MB... in any case, mine tend to be under 40MB. My latest item was under 50MB each file and it had more texture maps than I normally do. Texture maps are what usually blow out the download filesizes. Thanks for your interest :lol:

    ...

    edit to add: The Lyon/Calais cross-product discount is not doable the way it was in the old store so I will put up a bundle instead that gives the equivalent discount :-) In any case, if anyone bought and missed the intended discount, please contact support to reimburse the difference. Thanks!!!

    Anyway, great new items today from fellow PAs - that slim man is creepy! (in a good way! lol) Off to look some more... :P

    Just purchased Yolande Hair, it is to die for and thanks for making a poser and Gensis version. I own most of all your hair products except about 4. Your work is creative and beautifully done!
