I Found the mesh!!! It is a Besen mesh, I've linked it below. Dawn was sweet enough to tell me, even though she doesn't do sims creating anymore! The link is below. Please redownload and let it over-write it if you've already downloaded it. I'm sorry for the stupid blunder, but it should be all fixed now! :sorry:

Gandalf the Grey. That is how I always think of him, even though he became Gandalf the White.

He will appear as an adult, not an elder.

Custom content included:

Eyes by Helaene (3.12 eyes – 19)
Her site is still under construction, but there are some really nice new items.

Brows by exnem:
Get the whole set, they are some of the best out there.

Skintone (summertime) by Enayla
The queen of skintones!

Hair by garrettgordon200:

Beard by Maxis, the Holiday Pack

Maxis Late Adult face (costume make-up) by Hairfish of Mermaid Cove:

Clothing Texture by Dawn of The Anything Box, shared with permission. I believe she has closed her site now.

Hat is a recolor by me, with Dawn’s texture of a mesh by Lord Dragonstone of Sapphire Sims. It will appear under glasses

You will need the following meshes for him to show up properly in your game.

Corrected mesh Tunika mesh from Besen's
Another great site for period clothes and hair. Lots of great stuff there.

Hat by Lord Dragonstone of Sapphire Sims 2: Under Meshes/Accessories/# A027, the witches hat.
This site has an incredible selection of items for fantasy sims.


My other LOTR uploads are here:

My sharing policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

This works fine for my neighborhoods. It's a lot more complicated with my sims though. They are full of other people's work and there is a wide variety of terms of use among them. So you shouldn't repost them as is. If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

Miien has made some great LOTR clothes, including Gandalf's white robe here:

You can put whatever you like on him. Try to be more polite in your requests too, I was tempted to ignore you. A little more thought and you could have asked your question in a way that didn't annoy me, OK?

pretty good. only, Gandalf should have lighter eyes. Ian McKellen did in the movie, anyhow.
