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! Hi everyone! :wave:

I have been wanting these for soooo long and I finally figured out a way to make them! :D



These are made from a glasses mesh and there are 2 Maxis default skin colors included. The only small issue (which cannot be fixed) is that because these go over your sims ears, you can see a little bit of the regular ear underneath, but isn't noticable in the game. You could try making the ears smaller and see if that looks better - I haven't played around with them much!

Recolor if you want, but please give me credit for the mesh (it took a long time to make these) and include my readme file with it. Also link to my website - http://www.sims2creations.com

If you want to recolor, just extract the skintone you want to use, open the afface image and resize it to 256x256. Then save it over the ears bmp.

Hope you all love these... enjoy and make lots of cute elves and faeries with them! :jig: :smash:

P.S. - I will be making these for the other ages and for male sims soon! let me know if you have any problems with these.

Oh Lord, I need a moist towelette. Faeriegurl, I worship you. "Thank you" is so pale a phrase for what I want to say, so I shall have to think of a new word.... hmm.... I'll have to get back to you on that. Until then, I will gladly massage your feet and hands with Oil of Olay, then whisper Rusian pillow talk as I work the tension from your shoulders.

I love all your meshwork, Faeriegurl!

I am so hanging out for your male version now that you've mentioned it... can't wait to see it on the guys!

Thanks & cheers for all the hard work

Knightskykyte: there are sizing issues with the head and ears when trying to do earings and such that work for male Sims. I have had mixed results with earings and other doodads that relate to the head and ears

Yes these will be resized to fit male sims... also beosboxboy - I know you want some of my earrings for males, may I ask which ones and do you want them on both ears or one ear?

It blends in really well, but it is there a little bit... just making everyone aware.

Well, me, I want both; but the general public may want only one side or the other. The ones I like most are the smallish gold hoops.

As an aside I just did some recolours of your muscle top for Young Adult males and Adult males. If you say to me: make a zip file I will, coz you know EVERYTHING... anyhoo - I PM'ed you the link.

Thank you thank you thank you time a billion bazillion

Oh... OH! Faeriegurl!!! *just stares in awe* I'm struck dumb by how friggin' amazing these are! I wanted this -exact- thing but hadn't requested it, thinking, "Oh, nobody else would want those, surely I'm alone in my geekdom." I am so utterly delighted, flabbergasted, and bouncing in my chair excited I think I might pass out from joy! I saw the thread on the new downloads and just went "NO FREAKIN' WAY!!!" all happily. Saying "I can't wait to try these!" is like saying, "Y'know, I like breathing!" This is my new favourite thing. Ever. Thank you, Faeriegurl! *applauds wildly*
