HM3: Dress suggestions

I'm going to start working on Legwear - Dresses today, including a conversion of the 2.5 items and whatever new ones you all want. If you've got particular requests, please leave them in the comments. Links to actual images are best. Thanks for helping make these releases better, without your input the offerings would be very slim indeed!

  2. – A classic Wedding Dress (and save the veil for headgear)

    – Don’t know how you call that, but those big enourmous dress. Like this:
    http://wpcontent.answers.com/wikipedia/commons/e/e5/1856crnl.gif

    http://www.coudreetbroder.com/boutique/images_produits/crinoline_1.jpg

    This might be politicaly uncorrect, but it could be useful:

    http://www.dieter-philippi.de/images/1676_Burka_2.JPG

    I don’t know if those counts as dress, but I’m gonna suggest them anyway: A mini Skirt and A simple veil covering all the necessary bits.

    Also, The dress are in legwear, so you are only going to do the bottom part? Because most dress are a one-piece deal. One good source for dress is to look at Oscar pictures on IMDB.

  3. Good stuff, thanks fellahs. Collex, yeah, I am thinking about that … I will likely draw the dresses as one piece, then cut it in two, the top half for Tops-Female-Dresses and the bottom for Legwear-Female-Dresses, with them properly aligned to fit. Hopefully.

  4. Another place, last one, I’ll stop.

    The Queen’s dress is nice and the pirates, wow.

  5. How about a hoop skirt (useful for Western or steampunk characters)?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USpatent17602_1857.gif

  6. Here’s another really good picture of a hoop skirt that also includes the top half (blouse?) of the outfit:

  7. @Collex: I think the name for those “big enormous dresses” you’re thinking of is a hoop skirt. I had the same idea.

  8. @Niall Nor, The hoop skirt goes under the dress, like a slip or undergarment, that gives the shape to the dress. If I’m not mistaken. But people do call the dresses that also.

  9. MINISKIRTS!

  10. a beautiful saree would also be nice

  11. something like a greek toga dress would be nice

  12. Long Elegant Dresses. I’m not picky 🙂

    I do like Ada Wong’s dress in Neon’s #17 Comment.

  13. @JR: I think everybody understands now what kind of dresses you’d like to see

  14. I was thinking kind of an elven looking armor-ish dress. Like some of the stuff on Lord of the Rings but with skirts.

  15. Something that would also be cool would be a dress made of like twigs and stuff. Or a ancient Greece looking dress to compliment that medusa hair.

  16. 1 more suggestion. Try and make like a futuristic looking short dress w/ like polyfiber (if I said that right) padding and whatchamacallits.

  17. Found some interesting looking dress here but they are not exactly dress but they should be in the dress section. Take a look.

    Just scroll down and pick a few these are some I like from there.

  18. morphed weapons like a blade made from a hand

  19. Here are two examples which i made without the skins some skirts in this way would be fine.

  20. Rather late to the party.
    Non-humanoid legs.
    Will we have the ability to create less humanoid characters with this version?
    I want to create a Selonian character 😛 (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Selonian)

  21. I don’t think I have a ferret head in yet, but lots of other animals and such. Given your ability to chop a body into pieces and apply patterns and whatnot to each individually, this version is much, much more powerful and flexible than 2.x. I’d wager you can get close to what you have linked there, Sebiale.
