This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Hi all

I had promised that I would make things for all Egyptians in your game… and that not only includes all ages but also all kinds of clothing.

As people don’t spend all their time in tiaras (not even queens) Egyptians didn’t spend all their time in gala outfits – not even Pharaohs …that would make hunting quite difficult LOL..

So, this set manages the two things: you get clothes for just about everybody in the household and you get normal, everyday clothes.
Ok, I admit: although we imagine Egyptian society as very glamorous and colourful, the truth is the clothes were very monotonous in their colouring, especially until the Ptolemaic period (think Cleopatra) when the influence of Rome and the textiles from other regions made dressing up more fun,

They dressed mainly in linen from flax, and a loincloth or simple tunic was the everyday outfit of the “normal” Egyptian. Slaves usually worked naked. Whether you were rich or poor you wore jewellery made of gold or colourful beads and both men and women made up their eyes and lips
Just as a curiosity: the kohl, used in the eyes, had more than esthetical value: it prevented sweat from dripping into the eyes and there was even a time when workers when on strike because there were not given their weekly supply

Sorry it's not as elaborate as the others...but that's Egypcian daily clothes...

I guess that concludes the wardrobe. If you're looking for underware, please visit my Yahoo Group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AlexSims2_Skins

Excellent Three notes
Most look to be New Kingdom Styles

Kohl was also used to keep flies and insects out of eyes (Dr Rosalie David - personal communication)

Both sexes normally wore wigs - so hair should be absent in underwear mode

Thanks! These are just what I need - I'm doing a school project in which I have to retell a Bible story, and I chose to retell one in the form of a Sims 2 movie, and I needed REALISTIC Egyptian clothing!

This isn't tacky like some stuff you find, and it's not overdone - just Simmish enough, too. And researched. Thanks for keeping my faith in Simming Creators.

I have the right to act my shoe size.

Not to dwell but I work at a museum and specialize in Near Middle Eastern Civilizations. The Nile was (and is) a fairly dirty river and the bacteria causes many types of infections. One type common in A. Egypt was eye infections that would lead to the eye crusting over and the person going blind. Kohl was lead based and, although it knocked a few years off the wearer's life, it effectively killed the bacteria and saved their sight. It did also repel sweat and sunlight just like the modern equivelant worn by american footballers.
