This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a conversion of my TS3 Recolourable Glass Wings. They are for males and females from Children to Elder, coming in two separate files, one for Children and one for Teen-Elder. They're found in CAS under Glasses, with a custom thumbnail depicting a wing, and contain 18 swatches for 18 different preset colours and patterns. (So please note that your sim will be unable to wear glasses if they are wearing the wings.)

They're categorised for most outfits, but on a few, such as Formal and Swimwear, you need to click the X to remove the category filter in order to see them. And remember that you need to go into every category and apply them in each one, in order for your sim to always be wearing them no matter what category of clothes they change into. They are not enabled for Random, so you shouldn't get townies generated with wings!

They come in three different styles: Monarch Butterfly pattern, Solid colour with a patterned border, and Solid with no border. In the below pic, the first two rows show the Butterfly pattern in six different colour combinations, and the bottom row shows the solid-bordered style in two variations, plus a Solid wing with a multicolour Art Deco-style pattern applied to it.

The solid colour variation is especially useful for those who don't have good graphics and for whom patterned items can look blurry. The solid colours included are, as below, blue, red, yellow/gold, light green, dark green, pink, white, black, and a distressed brown in case you have Steampunk fairies or some kind of supernatural character with leathery wings:

In-game, a faerie family enjoys a frolic in their pool while their mixologist cousin makes juice on the rocks.

Afterwards, everyone heads for the kitchen, for whatever fairies have for dinner.

Recolouring: Now that we no longer have CaST, it's hard to guess what colours or patterns every player would like these wings to come in, so I've supplied recolour templates so that you can make recolours yourself. And as I've said in a couple of other uploads, I'm so pleased that we can recolour glass quickly and easily in TS4!

The three templates for the three different styles are in the 'Recolour templates for wings' zip file on the Download tab. The solid ones are very easy to recolour, just requiring a bucket fill in the rectangular square these wings are mapped to. The Solid Bordered ones are almost as easy - just apply the colour of your choice to the inner colour mask area (in yellow), and another colour or a pattern to the outer mask area (in red). But the Butterfly pattern requires more patience to get right, and I've attached it as a .bmp file to save the loss of quality from my original .psd file - saving it as .jpg like I did with the two others, makes it go too pixellated. The bmp file also contains the alpha channel, so you can see what the alpha looks like and you can play around with making it lighter or darker for more or less transparency.

Thanks for looking, hope you'll find these useful for your supernatural folk.
