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.
These big sets are going to kill me, I swear! Setting up my fantasy neighborhood is such an involved process. This set is designed to match the amazing Pixie Ashes by Enayla here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=23914 and here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=193105
The skintone has not been changed in any way, I’ve only linked it to Marvine/Beosboxboy’s Body Builder meshes. The Female adult and elder are linked to the Female Bodybuilder found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=18647
The male teen through elder are linked to the Original Body Builder meshes found here: http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=319

Below, you’ll find clothes for every age, both genders, along with make-up, hair, and a sim. Some of it I’m quite proud of, I think the sim I created is lovely. The clothing textures are all recolored Maxis, I borrowed alphas from Marvine and a neckline alpha from All About Style. The meshes are by: Nouk (hair), Marvine, Beoxboxboy, Gothplague, BlooM, Tiggerypum and EA. All meshes are included. Most will work in any game configuration, two require the Holiday Pack, one requires Seasons. I have all Exp’s through Seasons installed and all Stuff Packs through Family Fun. Several are categorized as outerwear along with other options. I think this means they will still show up in the other categories if you don't have Seasons. Let me know if that's not true.

Use Clean Installer and you should be able to install everything: http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/

I hope the pics are big enough to see the details. Apparently the limit on size has been changed to 150 kb, which is pretty small.

As usual, you can do whatever you like with the clothing textures or the sim except post them on paysites. If you'd prefer a different bodyshape, or the original Maxis body sizes, or can improve them, just go for it. It’s all about having fun after all. Check the individual policies for the meshes, they vary. I don't mind my textures being posted on the exchange, but most of these mesh creators don't allow it.

A big thanks for all the lovely content by generous creators. Also thanks to Hysterical Paroxysm whose tutorials helped me figure out a lot of techniques I needed to do this. A big thanks to Tiggerypum whose help made it possible for me to upload to MTS2 again sans the frustration.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Default The Sim, the Skintone, Hair and Make-up
I love this sim. I think she is so beautiful in a non-traditional way. I uploaded her with the S4 Default skintone. She’ll use whatever you have as a default for that skintone, mine is Enayla Pixie Night. I did this because in my game all the skintones are geneticized and I figured not many people would want that. The skintone that I’ve uploaded has the same genetics other custom skintones do, linked to the Body Builder meshes. I also hadn’t gotten round to binning the hair when I packaged the sims, so she has maxis hair. The hair I uploaded is binned as brown though. To make her look like the picture, you’ll have to change her in bodyshop or CAS.



The eyes are by Enayla: http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=348
Eye liner by Kamikitten: http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=141194
Lips by Zoej: http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=23865
Blush is my recolor of Sim-Cribbing’s: http://louis.new21.net/
The clothes are my recolor of Gothplague’s mesh (included) found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=47090

The skintone is linked to Female Body builder meshes, adult and elder; Male Body Builder meshes, teen through elder. I haven't changed the original textures by Enayla at all. The meshes by Marvine/Beosboxboy are included, find the originals here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=18647

The hair mesh (included) is by the uber-awesome Nouk and was part of the Wicked Nouk February Aspiration Set. I just needed a little darker brown. Find more great hair at her site: http://noukiesims2.net/wp/?p=278

Default Adult Female Clothing
I love this female body builder bodyshape by Marvine/Beosboxboy. You can find clothing here: http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=59 More meshes and clothing by Gothplague here: http://www.insimenator.net/forumdisplay.php?f=393 As far as I know though, there are no other fantasy/medieval clothing options for her, but I’m working on it.



All clothing is categorized for young adult, adult and elder.

I’ve zipped the everyday, formal and PJ’s together with the mesh by Gothplague found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=47090

The Outerwear option is zipped with the mesh by Marvine found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=17779

The swim/underwear option is zipped with the mesh by Marvine found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=18255

Default Male Teen, Young Adult, Adult and Elder Clothing
Nearly all of Marvine/Beosboxboy’s body builder meshes fit on teens as well. All of these clothes are categorized for teen through elder.

The every day and underwear/swim options are zipped together with the mesh. The original is found here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=17933

The Formal outfit is on a mesh by Tiggerypum. She gave me special permission to include it here, but you’ll surely want to check out all the great things you can find at the Dark Project here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=232462&c=1

The Outerwear outfit is zipped together with the mesh by Marvine/Beosboxboy. Find the original here: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=12713

The outfits are also categorized in multiple categories, so some of them will have to do double duty as athletic wear and PJ’s.

In the pics, hair by Nouk, Sizz and Sims Artist Union, Eyes and skin by Enayla.

Default Teen Female Clothing
The everyday option is zipped together with a mesh by Tiggerypum. She gave me permission to include it, but you’ll want to check out this great Simstones Set by the Mod Squad. Lots of great items for medieval/fantasy sims as well: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=172481&c=1

The formal option is zipped together with another great mesh by Tiggerypum from the Dark Project set found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=232462&c=1

Outerwear, Athletic, PJ and Underwear/Swim outfits use Maxis meshes.

I have uploaded a second outerwear option you will want if you use BlooM's detailed feet replacements. It's nothing more than the original Maxis teen female skin tight mesh with a new GUID. Download this option only if you have some kind of default replacement for the original Maxis mesh.

Here is BlooM's mesh: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=74569

And here are the foot replacements. I love these, but they are rather high-poly so only use them if you have a fast machine: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=65288

Default For the kids
I love to play families, so here are outfits for the kids. These all use meshes by the great and helpful Tiggerypum or EA. The meshes are included by special permission from Tig.

There are 2 files for female child only. The first is a Gypsy dress, mesh by Tiggerypum included, but you’ll want to check out the Dark Project where it was originally posted: : http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=232462&c=1

There is also a girl's Swim/Underwear outfit, mesh by Maxis.

The Male child has one file, the underwear/swim option, mesh by maxis.

One of the everyday outfits requires the holiday pack, it is for both boys and girls.

The other everyday and PJ outfits are for both boys and girls. They are zipped together with a mesh by Tiggerypum found at the Simstones thread here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=172481&c=1

The outerwear outfit is also for both and is zipped together with another mesh by Tiggerypum found at the Dark Project thread, linked above.


The toddler outfits are all for both boys and girls.

The everyday and PJ outfits are zipped together with a mesh by Tiggerypum found at the Simstones thread linked above.

Another outfit requires the Holiday Pack, the Outerwear option requires Seasons and finally a recolor of the Maxis diaper mesh.

Credit for the sims: hair by Nouk and Sizz, skintone and eyes by Enayla.

I don't have the time, but anyone who wants to can put these textures on whatever mesh they like. Most of them are pretty easy to just cut and paste. Feel free to try it out in bodyshop. :D
