**BOTH UNIVERSITY (for the hair) AND THE HOLIDAY PACK (for the beard) ARE NEEDED FOR THIS SIM**

Next is a character left out of the movie all together: Tom Bombadil.

He’s never really explained, there are many theories about him. He always amused me, so I decided to make him. He and Goldberry are so cute together in the game.

Custom content included:

Skintone (sweet fall) texture by Enayla.

The queen of skintones!

Eyes by Sussi Night Life

A really great site, some wonderful period clothing, hair and eyes

Brows by exnem:

Get the whole set, they are some of the best out there.

Hair by Maxis, University exp

Beard by Maxis, the Holiday Pack

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

Clothing texture and mesh by Gara, I only recolored the boots, you DO NOT have permission to redistribute this texture.

This great site has some excellent, high-quality medieval clothing and objects.

Hat and feather, my recolors of meshes by General Zoi. You may redistribute these recolors on a sim you create if you are so inclined.


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

Clothing mesh by Gara, click on “Gara Mesh” and download the male mesh #060216

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.**

Old Tom Bombadil is a Merry Fellow
Bright Blue His Jacket is, and His Boots are Yellow.


What a funny idea! He surely will look kinda "odd" in my neighborhood... the same than he looked to the Hobbits! :D

Great job!

Dr. Cameron: Men should grow up.
Dr. Gregory House: Yeah. And dogs should stop licking themselves. It's not gonna happen.

Actually he IS explined in the stories (sort of). He is hinted to be Illuvitar come down to take form and play in the world he made. He is also hinted to be the one who created the Hobbits as well. I can't remember if JRR actually comes out and says it as such, but that is the inference.

hear is his song.
Tom Bombadil:
Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!
Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! My darling!
Light goes the weather-wind and the feathered starling.
Down along under Hill, shining in the sunlight,
Waiting on the doorstep for the cold starlight,
There my pretty lady is, River-woman's daughter,
Slender as the willow-wand, clearer than the water.
Old Tom Bombadil water-lilies bringing
Comes hopping home again. Can you hear him singing?
Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! and merry-o,
Goldberry, Goldberry, merry yellow berry-o!
Poor old Willow-man, you tuck your roots away!
Tom's in a hurry now. Evening will follow day.
Tom's going home home again water-lilies bringing.
Hey! come derry dol! Can you hear me singing?

Hop along, my little friends, up the Withywindle!
Tom's going on ahead candles for to kindle.
Down west sinks the Sun: soon you will be groping.
When the night-shadows fall, then the door will open,
Out of the window-panes light will twinkle yellow.
Fear no alder black! Heed no hoary willow!
Fear neither root nor bough! Tom goes on before you.
Hey now! merry dol! We'll be waiting for you!

Hey! Come derry dol! Hop along, my hearties!
Hobbits! Ponies all! We are fond of parties.
Now let the fun begin! Let us sing together!
Tom Bombadil:
O slender as a willow-wand! O clearer than clear water!
O reed by the living pool! Fair river-daughter!
O spring-time and summer-time, and spring again after!
O wind on the waterfall, and the leaves' laughter!

Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow;
Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow.
thet is waht tom bombadil sings

I'm not good enough at making custom content to try old man willow. Never even attempted objects. Maybe someone with talent will see it and make it.

About all I can manage is sims in body shop and a few lame recolors.
