If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! :)

My first tutorial is finally done! Thank goodness!
Oh my gosh, this took too long. I spent at least 10 hours working on this thing. :dead:

I made this tutorial because back when I was still learning how to make dress-up games, (well, I still am) I couldn't find any tutorials here on deviantart that taught you snap-into-place coding.

So I figured I'd make an advanced dress-up game tutorial since all the dress-up game tutorials here seem to be pretty basic.

So, enjoy! :aww:

Within this tutorial you will find:

• How to make clothes snap into place (snap-to-grid)
[I referred to this as "drag and drop" in the tutorial-- Sorry for the confusion!]
• How to make previous/next buttons
• How to make context menus
• How to make color-changing buttons

I'd love to see what you've made with the help of this tutorial, so if you'd like, post it in a comment. :)

Once again, let me know if you need help with anything! :aww:


EDIT: OMGOODNESS! A DD! Thank you so, so much! I can't believe it!

Do you know these "show" buttons that usually dress up games have in the end? Like to show the player what he had done, the complete outfit, hair and make up in a different scenery. How can I do that? Is it hard?

I have a question about colour. How can you have like a colour wheel so you can select any colour by moving the cursor instead of having colour buttons? I find a lot of games to be lacking in 'just the right colours' for hair or eyes unless they have the enter colour code box or select on the wheel option. When I go to make a game, I'd like to be able to do that. xD If you don't know either, I'm okay with that too, just lemme know~
