Beverly HD for Brooke 8.1 is not a Barbie Doll. If only her product-page listed this fact!

This hair needs a brush. It’s evident when you look at the side profile. Stands of hair are going in opposite directions to the rest of the hair.

Another long-hair wig in desperate need of a good brushing. Is all long hair like this? I wonder why I’m just now noticing this. LOL!

30-Love! This is sexy tennis outfit, pose, and prop set for Genesis 8 females. Is dForce really too much to ask? :slight_smile:

I think this dForce dress needs a belt, but that’s just me. :slight_smile:

If that neck-line gets any lower she’ll need to see a gynecologist.

Nice looking outfit with a very weird crotch.

Collection of 4 distinct shoe styles for your Genesis 8 male characters. I’ve seen better, and I’ve seen worse.

My biggest gripe with this (and all the other food props that have been released recently) is none of them show the food actually being eaten.

Collection of 10 alternate materials for the Biba Outfit and Bangles.

Nice collection of 20 full-body poses and 6 expressions for G8.1F.

Nice collection of 20 Iray fabric textures artists and PAs can use for customizing their products or to enhance their scenes and figure’s wardrobe.

Final Thoughts

  • Well, it’s nice that Beverly isn’t missing any textures. She’s gorgeous and I can’t wait to add her to my Content Library.
  • The hair released today is quite pathetic.
  • The tennis outfit just feels out of place here in 2021.
  • I like the Biba Outfit.
  • That neck line in that Caroline Outfit is really something, eh?
  • I like the Brookes outfit but that crotch is something else.
  • I think if I re-texture the shoes they may be fine.
  • Don’t get me started on the food…
  • I like the Casually poses.
  • Passing on the Fashion Patch MR.

These are on the file list for Beverly:

  • /Runtime/Textures/Mechasar/Beverly/Beverly _Genitalia_S.jpg
  • /Runtime/Textures/Mechasar/Beverly/Beverly _Genitalia_T.jpg

Her full mat might cover gens if added to the figure. Trying to confirm with artist.

Well then they need to list those in the product page because that’s what I go by. :slight_smile:

I completely agree - it’s frustrating when characters don’t clarify that they are, in fact, anatomically correct. Ditto for dForce Hair - about 1 in 5 hair that isn’t labeled as dForce has built in dForce.

Her “All Maps” Covers female anatomy if added. She does not come with Male Gens maps - despite Brooke being gender flexible.

I mean it just hurts the PA more than anybody else. Because if the product page doesn’t clearly state the products’ capabilities how am I or any other potential customer going to know? If I’m looking for dForce hair I’m going to skip-over hair that doesn’t list dForce.

If I’m looking for an anatomically-correct female character, I’m going to skip over a product that doesn’t list an anatomically-correct female character.

I’ll update the page.

I like her a lot. I wish she had accessories or something. To justify her extra cost. I tend not to buy figures that go over the 13.99 range. I wonder what camera is used in the promos.

She comes with glasses :slight_smile:
