Technical and Legal Questions
1. Is it okay to use this stuff commercially?
Unless you hold the copyright to any of the other series/stories the Cosplay Closet models celebrate, please don't sell anything made from my Cosplay Closet models. If you do hold the copyright and decide to use my models, then please tell me? I can be found at rebehmATwrytersfyre.com
2. What program were these models made for?
These are prepackaged for use in Poser, and (mostly) can also be used in Daz Studio.
However, if you decide to use them in another rendering package, that's cool too. Just be aware that Poser models are polygon-heavy and may take longer to load than most conventional models.
3. Can it just be unzipped and used?
Yep. All you have to do to get at the goodies is unzip the folders where you want them installed. :)
4. Help! A texture's missing!
Sometimes, the early models ask for the psd files I used to make their textures. Don't let it throw you. Check under Textures>Cosplay Closet and if a jpg image named for the object is there, select it. If not, pick a texture from there that's colored the way you want. There will be something there that works. (I map stuff, but also use swatches)
I have fixed some things so that you'll not have to hunt for textures, but there may be stuff I missed.
5.The matpose didn't apply automatically! (occasional Daz Studio 4 issue)
If the material didn't apply when you clicked the object in the viewport, DS may not have actually selected the object. To get around that, select the object in the scene tab before using the matpose.
6. Is it okay to redistribute this stuff?
Please ask me first. If someone you know can't get online to download my gifts themselves, then it is okay to send them the freebie(s) they need, as long as you do it for free.
7. Oh no! [freebie] is gone! Now how do I get it...?
If a model is not on here or at ShareCG, you're not out of luck. Send me a message and let me know which one you'd like to have. For the quickest response time, send me an email. Odds are, I will get back to you between a few hours to a day.
8. What is the earliest version of Poser that can read this stuff?
This stuff was made in Poser 6, but it should be backwards compatible to version 5, or possibly even to version 4. However,
the previews won't appear in Poser 4.
9. Do you take requests? or I really want [character]'s hair, sword, cap, ect. Please help?
Yes, I take free requests. I can also be hired to design and build custom models (as long as you or whoever you represent hold the rights to the design). Ask and I will provide a contract. :)
If it's fan art, you'll get it for free. If it's original, then I would like compensation.
10. I'm not pleased that a model here references my intellectual property. I want it removed.
No problem! If you are the original copyright holder and you'd like me to remove a model that references your work, then let me know here.
It may take time - I will verify the claim (We've had problems with trolls impersonating folks before)- but I cooperate when the request comes from the rightful owner.
11. [Series name] appeared here; that must mean you’re a fan too!
Maybe yes, maybe no. Sometimes I build from series I am not particularly fond of - or might even loathe - when making a nice present for someone.
12.I saw a model I like in your art, but it's not uploaded as a freebie. Can I use it?
I'm flattered that you're interested. :) Let's see if we can work something out. Send me your request at this email address.
This applies to both my original work as well as my fan art. If it's an original, ask me about puchasing a license! They're cheap, and net you great models fast. :)
