Can someone, (If you can) Make this girl and her outfit into an .SWF mod.
I rather like the kunoichi look she has going. However! The pic is worthless as a reference. Educate thyself.
In my opinion it's not a dumb request. However, a modder is more likely to consider your request if you provide profile views of the character. See rules for submitting a SDT mod request. Requesting Rules PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING A REQUEST | Undertow

How are these?
They're very small
Please read the rules.
Please provide fullsize images instead of thumbnails.
Rehost your reference images (as you did with your first post) instead of attaching them.
Please provide the name of the character (and/or source material) so that it's easy for modders to look up additional images.
Clearly explain what you're asking for.
Charcode? PNG hairstyle? SWF hairstyle? SWF costume?
The character and costume in your second post are different from the ones shown in your first post. If you want the second girl instead of the first, then say so. If you're asking modders to merge the two together, then say so. If you want both characters and costumes as separate mods, then say so.
The costumes are fairly elaborate and include some details (e.g. the trailing scarf) which may scare away novice modders. These details may not actually be important to you. It's therefore useful to identify which parts of the costume (and/or hairstyle) you really want, and which ones are unimportant or unwanted.
Try to understand the relationship between reference images and mods.
SDT is shown entirely in side view, so we need high-quality side view images in order to create mods.
SDT normally shows the right side of the girl's body (and face, hair, costume, etc).
If you provide mostly left-side images, then you should clearly explain whether you want modders to simply mirror-flip the images, or whether they're supposed to creatively reconstruct the (hidden) right side of the girl's face/costume/hair/whatever.
In many cases it's entirely appropriate to mirror-flip a character design (e.g. because all of the visually-interesting aspects are on the left side). But fans occasionally get upset when an artist flips a character design -- especially a hairstyle -- so it's prudent to explain your preferences clearly.
SDT mods can include animation features, but modders need to understand the "idle" or "resting" shape of an object in order to work with it. Try to find images which show the character at rest.
This applies to hair strands, long ribbons or trailing sleeves, loose fabric in general, straps, bouncing/groped/squashed breasts, lifted skirts, etc...
You can (and should!) provide "action shots" as well. The difficulty arises when you provide nothing but action shots -- the modder is forced to guess at a neutral shape, and they must then invent shading patterns (and/or fabric creases) which are appropriate for this shape.
Try to understand the consequences of SDT gameplay.
Female characters in SDT spend most of the game on their knees. The long scarf shown in your second image is too long. If modeled realistically (so that it droops downward under the influence of gravity), it would scrape across the floor as the girl moves back and forth.
It's possible to actually implement the "scrape across the floor" thing via physics modeling, but it tends to look lousy.
We could sidestep this problem by shortening the scarf.
We could sidestep this problem by making the scarf very rigid (so that it retains a curved shape and doesn't droop straight downwards).
SDT allows players to adjust the size of the girl's breasts.
It's tricky to provide breast slider support for "sports bra" designs, because the lower margin of the torso element must stretch downwards as the breasts grow.
If you're willing to accept a fixed-size design, then you should give modders a breast-size number to work with.
The feet of an SDT girl are permanently extended.
If all of your reference images show the girl standing flat-footed, then the modder will need to "twist" the footwear 90° to fit the template. The girl's shoes may twist stangely at the ankle; the result may be uncomfortable to look at (or simply ugly).
If you can provide a few images which show the feet extended (e.g. lying prone, standing on tiptoe) then it will be much easier for the modder to create appealing footwear.
This may not be a size image i'm trying to find, but these are the images i could find with a girl on her knee's, i hope for who ever will make the mod (Into a .SWF mod please) and the hairs.
She looks cute. I might be able to do it, but it'd help a bunch of if we had some side shots
This somewhat close to what i could find when it comes to Side shots.
