    Thank you sir, I'm going to check those two out. For all I know, I may even have one of them, as I've done a couple of Flapper renders before. ;)

    Edited to Add:
    It's Varnayrah's Flapper Girl Poses. Good thing too, because Elliandra doesn't have the Vintage Elegance in her store at DAZ anymore.

    They look pretty good in 50s/noir renders, too--something like Frequency's Rockabilly Dress and AprilYSH's Deeta Hair or LittleFox's Xanadu Hair, some nice pumps... ;) (For example, the Galbraith promo in Mélange: Pour Homme: the lady's face is from Jazz Age Dames--I'm pretty sure it's Mignon or Louise.)

    I've never really bought a set of face/head morphs before...but I was SO impressed with your heads/faces for V4, that I went to DAZ and bought the ETHNIC morph set for her...so I could get two sets here... (was surprised at the sale when I put some items into my cart there, that was helpful!) You can tell I do love the American Indian cultures especially... so now I HAVE to USE my V4 (I had gotten a set of poses called Besties for BOTH Dawn and V4 at Rendo a bit ago- again to help me USE all the V4 content I have invested in over the years too!!)

    Thank you so much for your support! I hope you really enjoy using them. :)

    I put together a render last night to play with some new stuff I bought at Rendo recently (if you can't tell, I'm on a bit of a China kick), featuring May from Jazz Age Dames.

    Beautiful render Zaarin, and that Kimono is just gorgeous. ;)

    Esha has a really lovely Hanfu for Genesis over at DAZ called "Asian Princess" or something like that, but this is the only Hanfu I've found for V4. :D We really need more Chinese stuff in the Poserverse; everything is fantasy-Japanese. :(

    Even a lot of the Japanese-themed stuff seems to be made looking through pop-culture tinted goggles. More authenticity for a lot of cultures is needed.

    That's why your products have caught my attention. Structural facial differences between Sioux and Cherokee (or Cree, Navajo, etc) are there.

    Where did you find it, if you don't mind my asking?

    Indeed, I'd love more historical clothing of all kinds. That's why I said "fantasy-Japanese." I actually got into making these faces because I was a little tired of every Native American products I saw either being Sioux or so inaccurate it wasn't even funny. ;) The Native Americans have low genetic diversity, but that doesn't mean they all look the same. And what a lot of people don't realize is that Europe also has moderately low genetic diversity, especially compared to the Middle East or Africa. ;) And of course the Na-Dené (Tlingit, Athapaskans, Navajo, Apache...) and Inuit are entirely distinct populations from Native Americans.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post offstore links here, but there's a link to it where I posted it in the Renderosity gallery. It's called rather generically "Asia Dress for V4." It's very loose fitting, so I bet it'd be easy to refit to Dawn, too.

    JOdel Extraordinary HW Honey Bear

    Found it. Comes with lovely textures.

    I see it's Poser dynamic. Might be a good test case for the DynCreator script, but the promos all look like the material ought to not be particularly "draped" even if it is dynamic.

    Is Hanfu anything like Han Bok? I'm familiar with that term since I'm on the edges of KoreaTown here.

    Hanfu is a collective term for the traditional clothing of Han Chinese, rather than referring to a specific outfit. But the Asia Dress could probably make a pretty good base for a Hanbok if the sleeves and bodice were tighter. I lived in Korea for two years when I was a kid. :) A Hanbook is on my list of historical clothing I wish someone would make. There's a very old one for Aiko 3 at Renderosity, but nothing for newer figures. :( Top of my list, though, is this variety of hanfu from the Tang Dynasty. :inlove: The Asia Dress is, if I'm not mistaken, Song Dynasty.

    Not a problem. Just found it. I already have Sveva's paper lanterns, and I have an old V4 hair that'll work as well. ;)

    Reasonably accurate East Asian hairstyles are much easier to find than clothing. ;)

    I've noticed that Zaarin. Odd too, as you'd think more folks would create Asian clothing, as there's lots of great fabric/texture options available.

    I guess hair is easier, especially since the big updos popular in especially China and Japan lend themselves well to fantasy and sci-fi (as can be scene in the strong East Asian influences in Padmé's gorgeous wardrobe in Star Wars The Phantom Menace that almost makes that insufferable movie worthwhile :p).
