Reinstalling DS, converting things to Dawn and Diva and my experiments along the way

Genesis 9 starter essentials have just hit. You probably won't see many posts on this thread of her though...as it wouldn't be fair so I'll probably post in the thread I just started over at Daz.
Wow! Usually, starter essentials come free. At least, that's my experience. It just shows up in DIM for download. Haven't checked DIM yet, but if we have to pay, I won't be getting G9 for a while! And the V9 stuff is outrageously priced! It was even in the pre-order sale.

They are but they're listed in the stores as well for some reason.
Glad you found the robe it's fun to play with.
The prices look fairly standard to me.
I've bought a few things. I bought Victoria because in my opinon the female base is very masculine.
I also got a couple of outfits OOT's 10 in 1 and Mango movement, plus the emotions and the character essentials.
I'm a bit disappointed in the clothing as there is some pokethru on some items even in zero pose.

Poses that come with genesis 9, there are 3 sets all pretty much the same and imo the poses are too feminine for the male.

I saw a post by someone else that said that, too. Or was it you over there? Not surprised, though. I think it would be pretty hard for a single mesh to look precisely non-committal. It's bound to lean one way or another. But, I remember the original genesis, and they made either gender look pretty good. We'll see. But, for me, the stuff is way too expensive.

Might have been me. I'm not talking about the base mesh but when the base woman slider is used. I think the base mesh is okay, the woman though still has too many muscular looking features in the chest area for my taste.
I'm wondering if they expect people to use Victoria 8 as a base more than the base woman or just encourage them to buy Victoria.

I've rejoined Daz+ for 3 months. It cost $24 for the 3 months. I already saved a fair amount plus got a free product for rejoining worth up to $20.

Add into that I've spent much in the last 3 years so I have enough there at the moment but I won't be buying a huge amount.

I want the morphs and also some decent poses.

Sorry I haven't posted much...had a few days where I wasn't on my computer as my mum had a fall last Sunday and was busy with my parents most of the week. Good thing is she's okay but she gave us all a scare.

Glad to hear she is OK. My mom never fully recovered from her fall.

I'm also glad she's OK. Caring for an aging parent is NOT easy by any means.

Thanks for the comments. She seems ok from the fall. Spending a lot of time trying to help make things easier for them to be independent. Cleared out her pantry as she had been overbuying and recently realised it. So to make it less overwhelming I cleared out the older stuff and left her with 2 of each item. Thing is it all takes time to do. I often feel like I need another 24 hours in each day at the minute.

Daz has a sale on tutorials at the moment and I bought one on geoshells which had Ken as one of the tutors.

Playing with geoshells this morning on Dawn. Still needs work it's just a texture using superbladepro...

It's too bad that DAZ hasn't come up with a way to allow a border to be dialed in on the Geoshell's as this would have made the mask even cooler. The border could have it's own surface option to colorize or add in more textures to make things like cowls, masks and other facial elements stand out more.

It would probably be easy to do as a texture but I'm wondering if I can set up surfaces on it. I'll have look when I get chance.
