Drown yourself in the tragic tale of The Little Mermaid with these carefully made Sims. Published in 1836, The Little Mermaid is the story of a young mermaid who trades her beautiful voice with the sea witch for a pair of legs so that she may pursue the handsome prince who lives in the castle by the water.

The Little Mermaid: The Mermaid.



The Little Mermaid is carefully textured from head to tail-fin, evoking the beauty of the deep. Custom eyes have been made for her, a combination of photomanipulation and hand-painting that gives it both clarity and deep colour. A special face-mask of glittering scales has been handpainted, carefully detailed in the same style as the eyes and tail. She also has detailed pointed claws, to accentuate her strange half-animal, other-wordly look. Her body is dabbed with scales at her neck, breasts and forearms. The texture on her tail is a combination of source photos of real fish and careful hand-painting to unify and accentuate the colouring. Underneath all this is a pale, hand-painted skin tone based on the original Maxis tones, but with improved facial features. If you play the Little Mermaid in your game and she has children, never fear! The skin tone is present for all age groups and sexes! (As is the hair!)

The Human Girl



The Little Mermaid becomes a sad, silent young woman who is cared for by the handsome prince and dressed beautifully, given all a girl could want except his deep, unending love. With a combination of photomanipulation and hand-painting, the dress is based on fashions of northern Europe in the 1800s, detailed with gold filigree. The make up on the face is by the very best custom creators in the Sims 2 Community, warming her previously cool watery features and capturing her deep sadness. She still retains her stormy sea blue eyes when in human form, which complete her alternate look.

Meshes Needed:

The Little Mermaid needs the following meshes:

- Mermaid Tail by Beosboxboy (available here ) Other sexes and ages are available for potential offspring.
- Long Hair with Braids by Nouk (available here )
- Long Nails by Shadylady482 (available here )

Hehehe. Bless you, Meshy!

And the extra dot in the filename doesn't affect the file. Not on my computer, anyway. Sorry for the annoyance!

Uhm - a mermaid is whatever you imagine it to be. This is my vision. There's a more human looking mermaid in another download. You can download that one! Cheers!

I love your version. When I saw that The Little Mermaid made the vote list I was all excited, until I realized it was the other one and not yours. She made alot of outfits, but I think your mersim is better. Usually I don't download sims, but this is a must.

I don't think 'can' caught on that this isn't the Disney version of mermaids. Of course they are cold skinned, the ocean is FREEZING. The nails do bug me a bit, I've never heard of mermaids having claws, but thats just one small thing. And looking too 'fishy'? Um, they are half fish, of course they are supposed to look fishy. Mermaids wouldn't really look like the Disney version of 'we stuck a persons top on a fishes bottom', it would be more of a blend. Yours is PERFECT. I only hope she looks this good in the game!

That person put in such a huge effort, I wasn't surprised they got a place. And congratulations to them, I say. I concentrated on the mermaid aspect more, but that's because I'm absolutely obsessed with them and their theoretical anatomy.

Thank you so much for your kind words!

Well, I got the claws from reading a lot of books with Brian Froud pictures in them, and a lot of celtic mythology. In their tales it's only the mermen that are ugly, and they have big clawed hands. I figure that the merpeople might need them for hunting. Don't worry, if you don't like them you just take her to a mirror and take them off.

It looks exactly the same in game as it does in the preview shots. I don't photoshop my preview shots. I only photoshop the title image, and even then I just tweaked the contrast so that the face can be seen clearly. What you see is what you get :D

She's beautiful. I can't wait to see what she looks like in game.
By the way, the link to the long nails is not correct. =) It links to the hair by Nouk.

This is SO amazing, but i can't find the nails mesh (it seems you accidently put the hair mesh instead of the nail one) and the website for the tail mesh is down. D:
