I'm feeling a little sheepish about this, considering the sales fatigue I was feeling at the end of the PA sale, but blast it. I NEEDED Sebastian and the Incubus, and then I needed their female counterpart for completeness.
Then I got the Tavern Bundle for free with my PA Sale coupon, and then of course I had to have the Sebastian hair because that's my favorite hairstyle from any decade even if I can never pull it off myself (but it looks aces on Tilda Swinton, one of my favorite actresses of all time).
AprilYSH reliably activates the wallet vacuum every time I see something new from her. Her hairs have a different look from anyone else's, and it's one I just can't get enough of for the very specific level of stylization I normally use in my renders.
I got Dark Passion as well. I figure that lets me off finishing that pesky trench coat that's giving me so much trouble getting it rigged. At least I'm going to look at the DP coat's rigging and see if it can handle movement. The thing is that that's an entire outfit, and it'll probably be all I can do to get the coat done properly and to my own satisfaction; and are DAZ customers really going to buy just a coat for $10 when they can get this whole thing for under $5?
On the other hand, I thought Security! was a failure on first release, and it more than proved itself with long-term catalog sales because no one else had a security guard/police uniform with its features.
Strands of Horror has been fun, but I'd best get it wrapped up and submitted today. I've got a lot to do before Christmas. I still haven't decided whether to do my severed head stuff as a product at DAZ, at Rendo, or as a freebie on this site. Brokers are apt to be a bit squeamish about that, and well they should. Apparently half the customer base really wants it and will pay for it, and the other half want to scream THE CHILDREN THE CHILDREN and never buy from their stores again. I can't claim to hold a normal person's brief on gory images, because I've never been much bothered.
