Having now figured out how to make recolourable glasses for my previous two uploads, here's something else I wanted to figure out for a long time: recolourable glass wings:

They are enabled for all clothing categories and are for both genders and all ages from Toddler to Elder.

They're found in Glasses in the Accessories section in CAS, and come in two versions within the same package: a version with butterfly markings similar to that of my Butterfly Wings already uploaded here (they use the same mesh as those wings), and a blank version with a border around it. When you find them in CAS, the butterfly version is under the custom first thumbnail, and the plain/bordered version is under the second thumbnail in the same row.

So, you have a huge variety of wings that you can make by applying different colours and patterns to the two different versions, such as in this composite pic depicting the butterfly version in the two leftmost pics, and the plain/bordered version in the other four:


As you can see, a lot of pretty combinations are possible by mixing different patterns. For instance, I like the delicate stained glass effect of the wings of the below smoochy couple:


RECOLOURING: Like my recently uploaded recolourable glasses, you need to keep the colours darker than you would normally expect: move the brightness slider well over to the right, or else the colours will be very bright. See my instructions in the Shades section of 'HOW TO RECOLOUR THE LENSES' in my previous upload: http://www.modthesims.info/d/483956 In the 7th pic at the bottom of this page, the top half shows how the wings look at night - they have a slight soft glow effect. But the bottom half shows what happens if you make the wings bright in CAS - Dayglo wings! If you WANT a Dayglo fairy, now's your chance. But if not, keep the colours/patterns dark.

PLEASE NOTE that as is also the case with my previous wings, and with most (if not all) custom content accessories, having your sim wear any other accessory at the same time as the wings could result in the wing texture becoming blurry/pixellated.

Man and woman's outfits are from EA Store world 'Lunar Lakes', and boy's hair, outfit and woman's hair are all EA Store items.

Thank you for looking, hope you'll have fun with these.
