Wow! After the December Christmas Sale I need to take a break from the Daz store for the next 2-3 months. 😀 There were lots awesome stuff for sale, so let’s get straight to it.
For new releases, a big favorite for me is the Cloudscape Creator Bundle. Sky HDRis are always very useful for my fantasy images, and I like how customizable these are. I just started experimenting with it, so still in the early stages of use. Dimension theory also released a cool PC+ HDRi pack, which I scooped up right away. I am a big fan of their HDRi products.
Next, the dForce Spidertech Outfit looks totally bad-ass! It is also a Daz-O so bonus discounts. In the hair department, I like Alyssa PonyTail Hair. Definitely want to try combining it with other hairs as well, to create some new styles.
Finally, there were a couple of fun Zeddicuss pose sets. I especially love Z Guardian Angel Shape and Poses, which would be perfect for Valentine’s Day images. Z Pin Up Mania Props and Poses is another interesting set with some very cool props.
In addition to new releases, there were also some great vendor sales. Many vendor stores had discounts of 65% or more. Together with the loyalty discount, it was a really fantastic deal. I must have bought up most of the items in my wishlist. 😀 There are too many to list here, but a few that I am most excited about are –
- IgnisSerpentus – Divinity – Athena Outfit, dForce Mistress Malefica Outfit.
- Ansiko – Floating Market, The Gateway, Escape.
- Pixeluna – The Pose Collection for Genesis 8 Female, Pix Onyx.
- outoftouch – Vintage Leather Jacket for Genesis 8 Male(s), Sara Hair.
- Mytilus – Star Warrior Outfit Set, Top Daily Outfit Set.
Finally, I want to highlight some wishlist item purchases that I am most excited about –
- Adventure Outfit – Excited to enhance my Lara Croft renders with this one!
- Muelsfell Modular Frozen Cascade – Beautiful winter environment.
- Dramatic Together Poses – Very well crafted and powerful poses.
For the beginning of the new year, we selected six brilliant vendors that gave us good discounts during the Christmas/New Year sale –
Images with the newly released Tristan 8, Rynne 8, and Darcy 8 will also qualify.
