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.
Please test out this new mesh - i've tried to do the 'Gothgurl' look, with chunky boots and a layered 'mesh' skirt ... but as I'm so bad at skinning, it hasn't quite come out the way I wanted!
I wanted a lacey effect for the under-skirt, but I think it has something to do with the 'material properties'(?) Anyway, see if there are any major problems - again it's 'fat-resistant' - hope the skirt behaves ok during play, it took ages to assign the new verts to the different bones!
Thanks to everyone - MTS2, et al.
Please re-skin and post your creations so I can use it in my game!
Any suggestions on alterations please let me know - and for God's sake someone please skin me a set of Goth Boots!
Happy simming,
Amy xxx

Hi, sorry everyone - thank you all for your fantastic skins, they're so sexy! I've re-mapped the textures on the Boots, (and tidied up the legs so the stripes are better); but in doing so your skins that you've all lovingly made need some slight alteration - just a bit on the alpha at the toes, it probably won't take long to re-do the project if you 'cut-n-paste' off mine(?) If you prefer the old one then don't install the new one, it'll over-write it! (Sorry!)
Thank you all so very much - hopefully more coming soon ...!

ps. I've also enclosed an updated texture map to help with the re-skinning, sorry! xxx

Looks darn good to me. Really appreciate your work with these new meshes. They add realizism to the game.

It was so hard to get the dresses to look right when creating a skin. You have made it easy now.

I Downloaded And will be playing it in my game in just a few.. As far as your boots go, I think they look great. The skirt looks layered. Maybe you're just being hard on yourself. Great Job :clap: Bravo

Love it!
Finally, a goth outfit that doesn't look like something that you would see in Hot Topic or on some mall rat. This is my favorite sim outfit yet! Thanks :banned:

Well this is an amazing mesh! And it reminded me massivly of Amy Lee from Evanescence. So I decided to edit the skin so it looked more like her, it's not perfect but good enough. There is a problem that the socks have been streched strange at the back. I've spent some time trying to fix it without much success, not that it's that noticable though.

The file is called layers as I was looking to see the strange looking underlayer, since it has the skin showing through. I made it solid colour but made it lighter.

An outfit based upon "aardvarkams" new "GothGurl" mesh. I made it primarily as a test to see how the mesh was layed out. It took awhile to figure out the UV coordinates.

It is pieced together from various other skin parts and a little original stuff. As I said, I put it together as a test so nothing special. Yet it did come out pretty good.

Just be careful if you decide you want to take a peek under her dress! Those goth girls can get you. *L*

Thanks to aardvarkams for the great mesh.

Hmm I've notced a few irregualirties with my skin after playing on it for a while as I had missed out part of the alpha map. This new version should be fine when playing.

I really liked some of the new textures comming out for this mesh, so I decided to mess around with the original a bit and see what happened. It works best with lighter skintones without going too pale or too dark cuz you can see some of the flesh on the stomach area.

(the gerbils have spoken.)

(so it's just the outfit and not the entire sim..)

I love the laddered tights steamed-pepsi! I've wondered why no-one has done them. Could you also just post the skin? The sim is rather large.

GREAT JOB. I've been trying to create a mesh like this, but it looks horrible compared to yours...
#19 Old 4th Mar 2005 at 1:42 PM
aardvarkams, I love the mesh, but could you also do this one with the high heels? I had a little skirt like this when i was in my late teens, I wore it with spike heels and lacey ankle socks, with a black bra and lace tank and the cutest little black velvet bolero jacket.

Wow, you guys are amazing, thank you all so much for your fabulous skins - I'm still trying to re-map the texture coordinates to get a really cool set of boots - if someone could post a set, or the texture file they're trying to achieve, I'll try remapping the boot textures to fit!
I'm working on a teen version, and I'll try putting together some platform stiletto's ...
Thank you all so much - they're so cool!
