Hi there
I've started this little project before the contest was announced. I widened the range of the content when I found out about the theme...

So now I present you the The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. (This is not Ariel, as much as I love this film, I based this on the original fairytale.... And because I want to give you a quick impression of this wonderful fairytale, I created a little story with pictures... I hope they're ok... I'm really new to this...) click the thumbs for bigger versions ^^

The Fairytale:

The facts (what you get):

There are 7 colours: blue, purple, green, red, silver, gold and black
(all Ages are included for one colour- no meshes included!)
The teen mermaids share the same shell-bras with the adult version. The elder mermaids have different shells ;]
All hairs are binned...
all dresses are packed into the "regencydresses" zip... Only the seawitch is separate...
The regency suits include a teen and an adult version (you don't need a mesh for the teen pants, they're just a Maxis recolour)

Edit: The mermaids only appear in the everyday category... I didn't want to flood your game even more.... If you want to use these skins for other purposes than everyday, use insim's wardrobe adjuster or search for a hack that enables everyday clothes for other activities...

The meshes (what you need):

Bipsouille mermaid updo
SAU hair currently on page 7 of the genetics section (MYOS Female Hair 07)
XM long crown
Rose mermaid updo
New siren hair (absolutely lovely mesh!)
peggy messy
peggy longflowing
[for peggy's meshes you'll need to download the mesh from the link that is above the green >download< button]

tiara (choose language, find the page of the meshes and download: MESH_RosematATiara301005)

regency suits ( Mesh--MaleRegency-(Adult) & Mesh--MTregencyjacket-(Teen))
Seawitch dress
empiredress (meshes -> page 5 on the far right; female 21)
formal empire dress ( currently second row, left; mesh_k8parsfacempiredress092706)
Wedding gown mesh (bodymesh ID: #02470)

Mermaid Meshes:
male (young) adult, elder
teen mermaids
adult mermaids
teen merboys
elder mermaid

wow... that was a lot..... I hope you like it :]

Please let me know if something is wrong...

and of course I want to thank amy for her input and bearing with me despite all the secrecy
AND! tony ^^ He helped me so incredibly much.... searching for pictures, rendering backgrounds, judging and on and on...

EDIT Some people pointed out that the siren mesh doesn't seem to work... that's because the file is a bit wrong.... When you've downloaded the mesh, find the meshfile amongst the recolours, it's called: MESH_takihairmesh01
or something like this.... Just click on the file, rename it to: MESH_takihairmesh01.PACKAGE
and everything should work just fine...

I started uploading the recolours of the hairs... If you'd like a particular colour, that I don't usually do, please tell me....

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
