For those interested, here are the past winners.
If you want announcements of site events and winners, follow us on Facebook.
Wow! A little bit of a surprise in Daz-land. I was expecting a new Genesis figure in the usual 2 year/July timeline but that did not happen, at least not yet. I really like the G8 figure though, so I am good either way. 🙂
My favorite new release pick for July has got to be the dForce Dark Guard HD Armor for Genesis 8 Male(s) by Luthbel. It is totally badass with all those skulls and reminds me of Arthas’ armor from Wow. Combine it with the Wind Warrior Outfit and we have some very interesting fan-art.
Other cool new releases –
- Eastern Sanctuary – Very exotic and love all the water. The striking architecture together with reflections on the water provides some great render possibilities.
- Hannah Ponytail Hair for Genesis 3 and 8 Female(s) – Another interesting hair by OOT. Always detailed, realistic, with interesting morphs.
For me though, July was really about getting older favorites and wishlist items. There were some amazing sales including the Temporarily PC+ Sale, various Flash sales, stacking sales, the great 20% cat discount, and more. Some great items I picked up –
- Mykonos – Another exotic water environment. I love those! And this one I got for $2.99! I was also super excited to get the Epic Platea Bundle for that same price.
- Mec4D Queen Of Hearts For Genesis 2 Female(s) – This gem was also in the $2.99 sale along with a bunch of other fantastic items by Mec4D. I definitely loaded up the truck here.
- Inked Vol.13: unLUCKY Tattoos for Genesis 8 Female(s) – I am a big fan of tattoos, and Shanas Soulmate has some amazing tats in their store. I always pick some off whenever there are flash sales. 🙂
- Zeddicuss Poses and Props – There were some great deals on Zeddicuss’ store, especially when combined with the 20% cat coupon. I picked up Z Fix It Tool Kit and Poses, Z Sweet Lollies Props and Poses, and many more.
- Grace Yong and Grace Yong Hair as well as Vivy Character and Hair Pack – Been wanting these two characters and hairs for a while now. I love the look of both characters, and the hairs are detailed and realistic. Very excited to try them out.
- Japanese Shinto Shrine – A large interesting environment with some amazing props.
Yeah, I have been very bad this July. 😀
We have a long list of items above, so lots of great vendors to pick from for August!
