Bella Goth is fun to play, and I love her original look. However, her dress looks pretty atrocious in the shiny default-replaced wardrobes of the 2012 simmer. So here are some new digs to bring her up to speed whilst keeping her classic look.
1. The Bellissima Sheath Dress: a recolour of a gorgeous series of dresses in many colours by nilou.
These were already intended to be a new belladress, but I wanted a slightly richer, bluer red, and disliked the original wooden platform soles. Mesh is included. (n.b.: this is NOT a pair of default replacement separates but a custom full outfit - still casual-categoried only.)
2. Bella's Swimsuit: a recolour of sevenskellington's flawlessy chic bustier swimsuit
for the enigmatic Bella in her series Fortune & Romance, textured to match the Bellissima Dress. (Please do read Fortune & Romance on the off chance that you haven't already - it's hilarious, engaging and painstakingly detailed, a perfect Pleasantview prequel.)
3. Simple Matte Red Bikini - a simple recolour of a simply wonderful bikini series by Hysterical Paroxysm
. I use these excellent default replacements by oph3lia at GOS
, which leave me without a skimpy, rich red bikini, something I think is just needed for certain sims. Maybe some people using the same replacements feel the same way!
4. BONUS - the Emerald Gift. Bella still needs her pendant. This is fairly extravagant but I think it really works with her dress, and in any case I couldn't find a nice small teardrop on a chain. This is a BONUS because it's a recolour of a very glam old necklace from Sue at XMsims
: due to their policy I wasn't able to separate and include the mesh so I'm afraid you do need the original necklace as well for this to work.
I'm really sorry if this inconveniences anyone. (I assure you it's extremely gorgeous in the original colours too.) I don't have BV so it hasn't been put into a special category or anything.
None of these downloads have the red nails from the original dress, but there are plenty of beautiful glossy rainbows of nailsets here on MTS. I favour these by -Ava-.
Everything has been compressorized and zipped up. Everything ought to be basegame compatible. I hope someone enjoys this little series!
Thanks to the many talented creators whose work I have shamelessly piggybacked off to create this series - nilou, Hysterical Paroxysm, Sue at XMSims and sevenskellington.
