This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Hello again ^_^

I know, I know, I missed halloween! Please excuse the picture, I had planned to have this done till halloween and then... well. Life got in the way.

Anyways, I had always dreamed of making different colored eyes for my sims and finally, with mijutaro's wonderful mesh, I got a few descent looking eyes done. These eyes are accessories and can be found in the glasses section. Take a look:



On the right you see the five color combinations I made, on the left a few examples of the textures I made for these, since I had to give the textures a very high resolution to prevent them from coming out blurry.

Ingame shots:





I know in these pics the different colors of the eyes are a bit tough to make out, but I wanted at least one pair of these look more natural.

And remember: mijutaro's mesh covers the whole eyes! This means the eyes do not move! But since it covers both eyes, the sims don't squint. And most of the time you don't really see that the eyes don't move - beause during making and testing these eyes out, I realised that, let's say, 70 per cent of the time the sims move their head and not the eyes.

Get mijutaro's mesh here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=182960

So, I hope you like these! And if there is any other color combination you want, let me know!
Happy simming!

Well, I found the hair (thank you Melodyway) but the rose isn't a part of it. So, does anyone know where the rose is from?

The rose is part of a donation hair at Rosesims. Where did you get the top the model is wearing?

Thank you all for the comments!
Okay, I'll try to answer the questions in one go:

The hair is from SAU (Sim Artists Union). I don't know the adress right now, but if you use google, you should find it pretty fast.

The Rose accessory is either from Rosesims2 (which I think) or from Peggysims. I don't remember, so sorry >_<
And finally: the outfit the sim is wearing was made by me, I recolored and retextured and outfit I found here.

I love the eyes, but there is a problem... the link for the mesh is not longer there. Is there any way to get the mesh needed for these very lovely eyes?

Do you have any idea how to navigate that sight? When I click the link it gives me a '403' error page...most of the sight is in Japanese, & no matter what I tried I can't get to the download..

Charaku~just want to say I love your work

edit: It seems it was Firefox 2 version -it seems Firefox 3 works..also sans either of those...Internet Explorer worked...
