A gymnastic version of La Femme. Again, pretty much the same dial-spun character. In this case, I made the leotard, gymnastic slippers, and balance beam, all in Hexagon and Poser.
The balance beam came from an amalgamation of images, products (real ones) and some 3d objects that didn't work for me (very non-optimized, no uv's, etc.) . So I made one from scratch. I might upload this for people to use. It's uv-mapped
The slippers were just a box around la femme's feet that I subdivided and made fit. I setup the uv-map so that they could use textures from existing slippers. Hexagon does not have the best uv mapping tools. But free!
The leotard was actually made from the la femme DEV mesh, which means I can't upload it. Doing it that way allowed me to fit the leotard super tight with no poke through and have all the body morphs matched perfectly. I still had to go in and tweak all the JCMs, of course. So this leotard is for my own use. I may make a "clean room" version and post that, but that takes time. Not that I'm lacking time (as far as I know) but I have other uses for it :)
So unless the dev team/publishers of la femme gives me permission, the leotard is just for my own use. Too bad. It really does fit like a glove making it super easy to use for demanding "bendy" dance/ballet/gymnastic poses. Pretty much no poke through.

Update: I remade the leotard from scratch. It's posted along with the slippers in the FREEBIES section.
A great learning experience in meshing and rigging. Some of the learning involved tears (literally) along with pounding my head against a brick wall (figuratively) and learning how to keep from exploding though relaxation meditation. And I owe it all to Poser bugs! 👍
I now, habitually press CMD+S ever just about everything I type.
