My cheongsam dress tested with native support (including JCMs) for Dawn, Sora and Cats. Add support for loads of official body and localized morphs. This time I've used it plain conformed, no dynamics. I have been working on the materials, and you can freely edit cloth and pattern colors individually. Basically set them to anything you like. By now I have 32 MAT presets with 3 patterns. Rendered in Poser with Superfly. ^____^

Thank you, Miss B and Mininessie! I've got some comments at DA where some Chinese guys were sad that women no longer wear cheongsam dresses anymore, unless in special occasions. Looks like this dress used to be worn everywhere in the past. :)

This side-parted hair is my first attempt on hair modeling in over a decade. I have been chickening-out on hair modeling for long enough. IT'S HARD!!

It ended up with 8,700 faces (all quads), which is pretty good for strand hair. It's an uneven, asymmetric design, kind of Channel cut. Modeled in 3DSMAX, rendered in Poser with Firefly. Figure is Dawn with CatsEyes morph and my custom t-shirt.

Thanks! I made the base diffuse map greyscale, so it's easy to change hair color to anything else. But I suck at texturing, so I am keeping it simple. :)

Nice looking hair. Cateyes with that hair reminds me of Trinity from the Matrix.

Thank you guys for the feedback!

I'd love to have a go Ken, and maybe do some balayage as well as highlights
I made the UVs super-simplified, overlapping all the strands on a single UV strip. The good side is that it took a couple of minutes to texture it, but a side effect is that whatever we do to 1 strip applies to them all.
