marilyn’s veil

i was asked in the comments about the technique of the veil, so here is:

the veil is a simple mesh, in left top image. to this mesh is parented a little sphere acting as a prototype for the pearls, this sphere is correct size and located at the origin. then the veil mesh gets duplivert as shown in the properties panel in top row. when this is rendered we see at each vertex point the little pearl, but nothing of the veil mesh. then a duplicate of the veil mesh (without the duplivert) gets a subsurf and a wireframe modifier with settings as shown in bottom panel. alltogether in viewport it looks like the image bottom right and renders like the veil with pearls 🙂
