This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Hi everyone!



This is my skin collection #1, non-default, as requested.









Please, read below:

1 – These skins will NOT show up instead of the Maxis defaults in your game.

2 – I will not send any of the hairstyles shown in the pictures (I mention this only because I receive so many requests for them... but they're not mine)

3 – The eye colours are not included this time. I have a default set coming up, so be patient.

4 – These skins have nipples but not genitals. I will NOT do a set with the genitals showing. Please stop asking for realistic nude skins - I am not making them. Please do not add genitals to any of my sets and upload it anywhere.

5 – Feel free to upload these with your Sims on non-pay sites, but please do not edit them. Every time you open a file in a picture edit program and then save it as a BMP file again, the result will be more pixellated and uglier: I'd prefer that all the versions of my skins circulating are ones of high quality without bad noise. (for your own personal use, do whatever you like, just don't upload them... for ideas for skins, I have a topic in the Create forum. Aside from that, minor edits might be okay, just ask me first).

Thank you – and enjoy!

Gorgeoud work, Enayla! Now I can make a comparison between these and my current default replacement in-game, decide whether I want to make the switch...

PS - I used your Opaline tone (with Barcelonista's eyes) to make-over two of my favourite sim characters (both elves)... they are so gorgeous now, much more like how I pictured them So thanks!

Thank you and I will likewise respect your decision on this.


Hey there. I'm afraid I really like the size of the Maxis' breasts: in my opinion, not too big and not too small. I won't be adapting any of my skins to any other meshes. It makes no sense since I don't use them myself, and won't be using them in the future. Maybe the Maxis mesh is undetailed in the chest area but I can't honestly say I could care less about that - I added the nipples only because I was asked to frequently, and I'm almost regretful that I did, as it led to inquiries for a nude, realistic skin, and then later for adaptions to all kinds of different meshes. I prefer making a LOT of different skins for variety in skin colour, than to try to find meshes I like and do a few adaptations to a lot of different meshes instead.

What I like the most about the Maxis mesh is the fact that I can use any clothes I like with it. I've yet to see any other mesh with that kind of variety. If I still play Sims2 in half a year from now (perhaps doubtful), maybe there will be a mesh around that I'll respect, and that has the same clothing variety as the Maxis ones - perhaps I'll move on to that then.

In the end, what it comes down to is time. This is a hobby, and I have a very time consuming job - I do skins for me and my friends because I find it relaxing and fun on the side. I have to pick what I want to do the most on what hours I have to spare, and I doubt it will be skins for something I won't even be using I'm really sorry.


And, thank you everyone

Now just one file seems to be broken, that's my favorite : EarlySpring... You're skins are awesome, I've already have all your "normal" skin beacause I don't really like to have sims who isn't like a real persone. But your horror skins or black skin are really cool, you do a amazing job!!! Thanks a lot

Oddly enough I do not like the enlarged breasts either. I was not asking you to resize your skins but to place the nipple where Maxis intended it to be (if they had had the nerve to display it). After all the blur still exists (for junior players) although it is rated M (mature). I respect your decision but please consider for future projects so that the many users of Warlokk's meshes (smaller sizes as well) can use your marvellous skin tones
Thank you for your time

These skins are really beautiful. Congrats on them, Enayla.

But, like several people around here pointed out, there might be something wrong with the downloads. I could only download the "Early spring" skin. The others stopped at diffrent times, no matter how many times I tried to redownload them. I don't know whether this is because of the download links or because of the fact that the site is very crowded, but it makes me really sad because, as I have mentioned before, they are really woth having in the game...

I, too, respect your decision not to make skins that are 'correct'. If folks want skins that are correct then there are many available.
Your skins are trully a work of art and I thank you for sharing your gift with us.
One note, however, when you capitalize words you are shouting over the internet. After the umteenith request to do something you have alread said you would not do, I can understand the frustation.
One can only wonder what would have happened in the Sistine Chappel(mispelled, I think) had the good Fathers critized Michaelangelo on aspects of the paintings. (The truth is, they probably did.).
The bottom line?
Simple. Thank you, again, for sharing your gift with us.

I just tested all the downloads and they're working fine for me. Try to download again and unzip with WinZIP - there shouldn't be a problem.

I downloaded the defaults not realizing they were replacements (silly me!) and while they are beautiful, they don't look so good on all of my Sims ^.^;; Thank you so much for making these non-default, I love your skins and I will be awaiting to see what you come up with next : )
