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.
I originally made this mesh so that I could make my adult prairie dresses for teens (they will be up soon), and then realized that I could make strapless ballgowns for really elegant affairs like formal weddings, state dinners, proms, cotillions or those elaborate sweet 16 parties.

The mesh was made with Milkshape using Wes H's plugins and Demon's tools. It was built with SimPE and, bump maps were enabled with Skankyboy's smd exporter. It has 2006 faces and 1314 vertices and should work with all versions of the game.

The file includes the mesh and a the recolor which is a strapless turquoise satin gown with a beaded bodice. The dress was made with the Gimp. I used a photo to get the folds on the skirt using a modification of the methods in Hysterical Paroxsym's tutorial "Beyond Photoskinning" and another to get the necklace design. The rest was done with tiling patterns (the beading), gradients (the shininess) and the magic of photoediting.


My Mesh Policy

* You can freely retexture this mesh, but please do not use my textures in your recolors. You can use my alphas if you wish.

* If you recolor to post on MTS2 please just link back to this thread for the mesh.

* If you post elsewhere you may include my mesh in your zips with credit to me and a link on the page with your recolors

* If you do recolor. Please, please, please let me know by sending a quick pm, because I would love to hear about it and see your creations! This would make me very very happy .



Thanks for looking and Happy Simming!

Kalynn

Thank you guys! I'm so glad you like this. I never make contemporary women's clothes, so this was a fun change of pace.

Thanks evip. I had fun with the beading. Since I usually make men's clothes, the glitz was lots of fun

It's from Pronup Sims . There are lots of great formal hairstyles there, but the one in the pic is number 36.
