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.
This first was a default replacement skin for bad witches in Apartment Life. You know them, bright green that is absolutely hideous. First thing I did when this was released was see a witch, and decided to replace the skintone for the bad witches.

The reason I used Pixie Serpent from the Pixie Demonic collection (that Enayla made, available here: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=193105) is because snakes are usually seen as 'evil'. The Light green matches well with the theme of evil witches.

Best effects are seen with any other of Enayla's skins. Such as the many available default skintones founds on the web.

Please submit any bugs you may find.

Known issue: You may need to change your face (add then remove some face paint with change appearance, accepting between both) for the textures to show up properly. It's a bug with the game, and this is the only known workaround

*UPDATED Sept 4*
Good witch skintone pulled for now. Might be back again sometime. Bugs in the program cause it to be unfixable, until I have a little more free time.

Thanks so much, What was EAxis thinking? Did they really think we'd like that skin?

The texture of teen female's face lost.

Hey. I'm looking at the file in SimPE (I want to make my own witchy defaults ) and I can't see any of the teen textures, or elder. Do they use the same one, or is it not included?
Thanks,
Em

Texture of teen females on the bad witch works fine, UNLESS you turn an adult bad witch into a teen using the sim modder. That's a problem on EA's fault. I know this because a young adult uses the teen textures but the adult body texture. Looking directly into the .package will not reveal anything (it works the same way as the vampire skins do)

Good witch only had adult face, adult male body, and adult female body. I'm assuming that EA finally made the skintones point for all 3 possible ages. Again, for the good, testing is needed more than bad witches

IAmTheRad - You may want to edit your first post to note that in order to get the faces to work right, users may have to Change Appearance, apply a full-face makeup, click the checkmark to approve it, then Change Appearance again to remove the full-face makeup for the proper face textures to show up. That's just the way the overlays work for some reason and is no fault of yours.

I just tested the good witch default and there is a small matter of males having breasts. It would appear that all bodies share the female body texture. They're not full breasts, as in sticking out like on a female, but the male torso shows definite rounded parts that are entirely unlike the Enayla male torso and entirely like breasts. I'd post a pic but censoring the picture might obscure the target area

Problem with this I had....the face was green, but that is all that was green. The rest of her was normal skin (pink) color! LOL

When in doubt, use clean installer

Is there any chance I could get the good witch replacement file? I'm planning on making my own replacement using a solid color transparent overlay (which nicely sidesteps the gender issue) and I'd rather not have to dig out the files and make one from scratch since I've only done that once and would have to relearn the process.

Very nice--all my defaults are Enayla's. I know that the evil witch skin is green, but that's too close to the alien skin for my liking. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed someone may turn Pixie Guilt or Pixie Dusk (both are grayish in tones) into the Evil Witch default. But until that happens (if ever), I'm more than happy to get rid of the Maxis option with yours!

Fantastic! I've seen a lot of evil witch skin replacements and pretty much every one is an improvement to the "green grease paint" look Maxis thought was a good idea. But Enalya skins are always gorgeous, and the snaky one was always a favorite of mine. It's perfect for a witch! Looks a bit evil and dangerous and definitely not to be messed with.

Thanks very much!

Hi, I really like this skin - but it doesn't appear to be working for me. I only have 1 evil witch at the moment and she is an adult.
