These are fantastic. I love how you've made them normal, and sunglasses. And all the different colours are fab! I'll be downloading them as soon as I'm at my own computer.

omygod. I have a similar mesh from....maybe Raon, I don't remember, but these have a much more 3D look.

Downloads needs to come back online for this alone! xD

Agh I know this probably isn't a good place to ask this but I just HAVE to know where you got the gorgeous skintones/makeup/eyes on your simmies. ;v; And whether you know if the skin/eyes have defaults available.

Tamo, these are completely adorable, but I'm having some trouble with them on my teen girl. Sometimes they look fine. But sometimes it looks like there are holes in her head where the lenses should be, and sometimes even where the lenses *shouldn't* be. Here are some pics to show what I mean.

Thank you for letting me know. Oh this is awful Do it happen only to teen girl?
I do not understand where the problem is.... Really sorry. But I want to fix it. I'll try my best. Please wait a little.

The worst way to miss someone is when they are right beside you and yet you know you can never have them.

JamesBevan9690: Clearly this thread was posted before uploads went offline.

tamo: Hm, this is odd but I tried it on another teen girl just now, and a teen boy and an adult male and female... and didn't see any problems at all. It's weird. Even that first teen girl only has the issue sometimes. One minute she'll be fine, the next it'll be glitchy. So I really don't know what it could be, or how to make it happen... let alone fix it.

ETA: Ugh. Tamo, it turns out that particular sim has the same problem with Maxis glasses. I've never seen that happen before so assumed it was these glasses.... but it sounds like they're *not* the problem. Sorry for any trouble I caused you.... and thanks again for the glasses. They're really super cute.

Thank you for nice words, everyone! I'm really getting excited about your comments. Glad you like it. Thanks, again

fanseelamb: Thank you for your report. It's really odd. and sorry for that sim girl. I make the "eyeglasses" family and I tested 5 sim days, again. But any problem did not happen, too. Anyway, thank you for your feedback(you are one of my favorite creators!!). And no problems.
If I get reports on trouble from other people, I'd let you know.
About this problem, please see post # 90 edit:2009.03.16

missdu21 and everyone: I uploaded this glasses to Japanese forum. (So, my English is know.)
It's written in Japanese, maybe it seems like mumbo jumbo. But you can easily find English word "Download / MESH". Try it.
(But please give me your feedback here!)
