Wow, I cannot tell you how thankful I am...
I got the Extra Pale and Pale ones (or Pale and Light...I can't remember haha) as part of a complete sim and they were definetly the best skins I have ever downloaded. Now I can have the other ones as well. Thank you so much for sharing your skins with us, you have a lot of talent =]

The EA boneheads said WHAT to you? Um...guess they've never been to an art museum. Lots of artists have learned and borrowed so much from you. My work was not very successful or well-received until I took a long hard look at how your skins were textured and incorporated your type of details into my work. It was like a whole free art education for me to look at the skins you made. Thanks for bringing your work here and thank you for your generous terms of use. EA's loss is our gain.

Most of the hottest looking Sims men are still the ones made with your skins.

Thanks! like many people I have trouble finding good natural skintones and yours are just perfect they look fantastic!.

**Important** - If anyone is having trouble downloading skin tones or any other downloads from louis's excelant sims site *Sim Cribbing* I have found a way to download them as I too was having problems with some of the downloads.

Just right click the download link and choose "Save Target As..." it sould now download without a problem ^_^.

I *hart* you! thanks so much over the last 2 yr's your skins have been on my sims more than any others!

Thank you. Your skintones are really ones of the very best there are. And the opportunity to get them all now in one place is great! I've been too lazy/slow to hunt them down over the net. I rather lived with one or two I had and kept overusing them.:D

Out of sheer curiosity and definitely an off topic: why were your works deleted from the Exchange?

Because EA live in a little box of political correctness, and they can't step outside of that box.

By far, these are the best there is out there! I had them all at one time but when I changed computers, I lost everything and couldn't download them from anywhere. I'm so thrilled to have them all once more! If anyone has never tried them then they are really missing out! Thanks Lady Louis! (I always thought you were a guy too!) :D
