Clothing for women in men's catalog!?

Not sure if this is the correct place, but there are clothes for male characters that I want to use and should be able to use for women, but I’m not able to! Can you make it to where all clothes are available for both male and female or just move the dresses and heels to the female catalog.


In the pic there is a dress I would like to put on my female MC, but I don’t even have the option to put it on any of my female characters at all! Help!!

The clothing is from the Pride update. Yes, everyone wish those clothes were in the female section. lol but hopefully they will be in the female section, not sure, and there isn’t a way to put them in the female clothing

Like Lana said these clothing are only for trans women (male section) because it’s pride month. I’m sure they will give us some more dresses soon. :slight_smile:

Hi there! And welcome to the forum!

Mostly, we do make the clothing interchangeable between male and female characters/body types. Or we try to. This was a special update. It is entirely possible that they will scale them to fit the female body spine in the app in the future. I don’t know this for certain, but I will ask tomorrow when the rest of the team is on. The thing about the clothes is that we actually have to make two sets in order for them to work for both.

Omg for once someone actually answered us about this I’ve been trying to get someone to answer about the female clothes but uhh I’ve seen them used already for females in various stories they just need to BE RELEASED!

Not necessarily. Things are sometimes released for certain characters or as a test run before they pass QA and are ready for prime time. I don’t know if you were around for the fishtail braid or not, but that was an example of something that was released too soon and went horribly wrong.

TLDR; Just because you have seen it, doesn’t mean it is ready.

I mean if we’ve seen it multiple times in stories some even since Pitch Perfect… wouldn’t it be finished? You guys have so many assets that we don’t have it would be so nice to have some of these clothes like the transgenders do I mean what if they wanted to be twins?! We all know things take time but some of these assets have been used so many times for over a year… or already a year.

Ah, okay this is a more complicated question. The official answer is as follows:

There are actually several barriers to releasing some of the assets.

  1. Any item that was ever in a gem choice has to stay restricted.

  2. Anything that was created as a part of a celebrity likeness or specifically for an IP story (Demi, Mean Girls, Clueless, PLL, Dolan Twins, etc) has to stay restricted due to the terms of the agreements we had in order to make those stories.

  3. Some items we make never really work correctly (the male athletic body and face are examples) and can’t be released because they can break your story, cause crashes or generally give readers a bad time.

Lastly, items in stories like PLL, Clueless and Cameron Dallas that look like they are part of the Ink style. Unfortunately, they are not. In addition to being assets created for IP stories (and not eligible for release) they are also not actually Ink assets - they just look like they are. For a brief period of time our internal team was working in a style that was a hybrid of Ink and Limelight that allowed us to speed up our story production. This style was never intended to be released publicly and the items won’t work on Ink or Limelight characters.

The above also means that things that are in Ink will not be released to LL and Vice Versa. Not without some serious time and resources devoted to it. And trust me when I say this takes considerable time and resources from the art team.

I get that but some of these items were even free… as in MC would just wear it… but you guys have released gem choiced outfits before not everything but some… such as a studded skirt from The Kiss List, Swim Suits from College Ish and Studded Boots From The Kiss List…

Yeah, we own those entirely. So we can do what we like with them. For a story like Pitch Perfect, someone else owns that IP and in order to be able to use it in our app we have to spend many moons with many lawyers hammering out agreements. And, unfortunately, part of those agreements tends to include that we cannot use the assets from the partnered story for anything else. It would be great if it was different, but it isn’t. So our hands are tied on the IP stories to a large degree.

Yeah that I can totally understand with celeb stories! 100% I mean most of that stuff is EXCLUSIVE! so I get that! I’m mainly stating that there are a lot of the ones you guys use for your own stories that would be awesome to release! Because it’s so hard to write a story even like my own who has models, CEOs that would need better clothes everything we have such as tops and stuff are so basic it’s so hard to work with. :tired_face: We all just want trendy stuff for both genders males, transgenders and our females.

We get that. We really do. It is one of the reasons we transitioned away from updating Ink and are now focusing on LL assets. They will get there, I promise.

I’ve moved this to Episode Fan Community since it violated several Feature Request Guidelines and can’t remain in the Feature + Art Suggestions category. :wink: If you’d like to make a request, please review the Feature Request Guidelines before doing so, to ensure that the title is correct.
