This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I wanted to include witches in my Medieval game and I was shocked at the bright green that is the witch skintone overly. Even the Wicked Witch of the West wasn't that bright a green. I quickly made myself a default replacement. The original skintone was set at 75% opacity (making it very green) and I reduced it down to only 50% opacity, allowing more of the original skintone to show through. I apologize for not having more pictures to show off the color change, but these three are the only witches I have at the moment. Two of them have a pale skin tone, and one is tan. They are also sporting custom skintones so the faces look a little different that maxis, but I promise you the witch overlays are completely maxis skinning, I just made it more see-through. At the request of Corylea, I've included and even more transparent version.

Maxis Witch skins are available for both genders, teen through elder, and I've applied the same technique to all the textures.
