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.

Yay, my first successful mesh!

I've always thought our sims could use some spectacles, so I edited the Maxis "Harry Potter" glasses to make something I could use on my Victorian sims, so this should be compatible with all games, EP or not, and appear to be successfully colour-enabled. The poly/vert count is the same as the original object. I've tested them pretty well, but please let me know if you experience any difficulties.

Please be aware, due to the way glasses work, these may look odd on sims with unusual facial types. You may notice some mild clipping along the bottom of the frame in the screenshots; this is due to the sim having rather full cheekbones. Certain other configurations of the face around the eyes may cause similar, more extreme side effects. This is not a bug, just something to note.

This mesh will show up on young adult, adult, and elder females.
Accessory Type: Glasses
Age: Young Adult Adult Elder
Gender: Female

Ahhh, thank you SO MUCH. I've been wanting glasses like that since I started playing, but my meshing skills are abysmal. If you make this fit men like you said, you are officially my HERO.

Is there any chance you might make glasses for Nooj by perhaps enlarging the glass part of the spectacles a bit?

kc15: I tend to make more Edwardian/Victorian things, just because it's a style I like myself, but if you have a specific style in mind and can give me some images of what you'd like, if I have time, I could take a whack at it. Just bear in mind, this is my first mesh and it's just edited from a Maxis mesh, so I'm still just a beginner.

Phoenix06: Just like this, but with one lens? I... suppose I might be able to...

Xunixeon - I think I actually have a version saved with a little bit larger of a lens (I kept sizing them down from the original Maxis mesh till they reached the point I wanted). If you can give me an image of the scale you're looking for, I could probably give it a whirl.

Love These! These Will Look Awesome With My Stuff From Sussi's ! Could You Please Make These In A Gold Color? Possibly Square Or Rectangle, But Same Size? Thank You Again!

Everything happens for a reason!

Ooh, nice. I've been waiting for something like this. Thank you!

I'd also really love to see some glasses with thin wire frames and smallish rectangular lenses. (Ovals would be nice too, but I really want rectangular ones.) New glasses meshes are so uncommon despite all the other accessories people have made.

This is a really cool idea. I don't have a Victorian neighborhood or anything, but they will lend some character to my characters! Especially elders and nerdy adults (although I must say, most of the Maxis glasses are more than nerdy enough; these are actually CUTE)
