Mike’s DAZ3D First Impressions for April 23, 2021

A Collection of Opinions and Observations from the DAZ 3D Marketplace

Today’s Promo: “Store Wide April Showers Sale”

Today’s Releases:


New Egyptian female character with a Greek name is at least complete and has a very familiar looking face!

This Egyptian palace features an open-roofed design that adorns the throne with ample irays of an artificial sun, clean lnes, and ample room for your subjects and guards.

This Egyptian Headdress should be free or bundled for free with the other items because let’s face it, it’s not like this can be used with very many other characters or situations…

This Egyptian makeup will give your characters eyeliners on steroids but also would make for some decent drag queen makeup as well.

Jessa is a new Barbie Doll released today and I’m just going to leave it at that.

Another pretty character that at least doesn’t look like a Hollywood model. But sadly, she’s another Barbie Doll, and this trend lately of releasing Barbie Dolls is depressing.

This set of 21 plastic surgery facial morphs for the guys is a must buy but also has me wondering where’s the pack for the ladies?

These dForce Buddhist Kasayas will help your Genesis 8 Male figures achieve enlightenment.

He may look like a doll but he’s far from it. This stylized character is fully equipped for a change (and so is his sister).

A hell-scape for Torment, perhaps? Or maybe a brand new World to discover. Who knows!

A Martian or Moon landscape/ environment for your renders.

Cool down your renders with this icy or snowy environment. It’s yuuuge!


Well that’s it for today. I knew it was going to take me a while to get this put out which is why I updated it as I was doing things on the fly.

Apologies for the lack of updates past couple of days. I’m sitting on a backlog now of 30 some-odd releases over the past two days!

Which, let me be frank, is overwhelming.

So here’s what I’m going to do…

I’m going to do a series of “Catch Up Posts” with (5) entries each. Five is a manageable number. And hopefully in a couple of days I’ll have everything caught up! But I’m not going to post another draft or “In Progress” for those. That’s too much work (and might generate too much email!)

So look for the various Parts with (5) releases each. Going to try to get one posted again later on today but things have been hectic with work this morning not to mention just getting caught up and things all reinstalled over the past few days.

Hell, I haven’t even looked at Facebook yet today I don’t think (maybe real early this morning around 4:30am or so!)

As always I hope you’ve found these helpful and if you have any suggestions please let me know!

I wonder if the PA remembered that ancient Egyptians didn’t have bikini waxes …

Maybe, maybe not. As I understand it, historians believe that the ancient Egyptians were fastidious about plucking or shaving their body hair (wealthy men shaved their heads as well, women might or might not depending). I’ve seen it suggested that ‘sugaring’ to remove body hair, invented in Persia around 1900BC, may have also been in use in Egypt, although I can’t find a good reference for this.

So it’s possible that Nefely having her lady bits as smooth as a ballroom floor is, in fact, historically accurate for a change.

I bought Hal and the quilt shader from yesterday. I think Hal looks particularly interesting when combined with other figures, and I largely want the head, and the skins. The body with the undersized look is odd to me. But you can’t have everything (unless you render white European females). I like looking at your blog, because sometimes something is here, that doesn’t show in the new releases and the robe product just doesn’t show in the new releases. Yeah, I could probably clear my cache, but I’m not going to do that for daz.

The dealz today are 1) ANY DAZ ORIGINAL FREE from a select list - no purchase necessary. 2) ANY DAZ ORIGINAL FREE from a select list (same list) with new release purchase.

There are two different coupon codes, so you may want both opportunities. You definitely want the first one.

Oops I forgot to update that part. Thanks for the reminder!

I thought it was buy one of the new releases and get one and the other is buy two to get two. Or was there another sale that I missed?

Also, if you’re a PC member there are some PC items in that store wide sale that are dirt cheap.

There was one you missed - it was definitely no purchase necessary - different coupon code. it was in addition to the buy one-get one.

another no purchase necessary coupon code today just scroll down the sale page.
