Idolatry of Flesh Redux:

So I was taking a look at my original Idolatry of Flesh skintones and got to thinking, "Hmm, they're both a little bland, having all the same faces, and sorta orangey." Maybe it's my new monitor. Maybe it's my new cybernetic eyeballs. Who knows. But I decided it was time to do some recolours.

This set features 8 distinct recolours of my Idolatry of Flesh skins, ranging from quite pale to quite dark, in both rosy and not-so-rosy tones. The body details are the same as on my previous Idolatry skins, but the skin of each face is unique, and works for all ages.

Delight: Quite pale and pinkish, with a soft, gentle face with light, rosy freckles across the cheeks and nose.
Illusion: A pale, smooth asian tone with glossy lips and a bit of a mischevious look.
Blush: A very warm pink shade with blushing cheeks.
Afterglow: A warm tan tone with a couple small freckles, and a more serious look.
Subtlety: A cool tan tone with numerous small beauty marks, and a turned-up nose.
Innuendo: A cool tan-to-medium tone with a lot of detail in the face, and slightly feathered lip edge.
Intuition: A rich dark tone with very soft lips and freckled cheeks.
Adoration: A warm dark tone with a slightly asymmetrical, turned-down nose and little bags under the eyes.

Not all tones may look their best on all face shapes due to the unique texturing. This is intentional - I wanted them all to look quite different. Therefore, they are not really suitable for defaults.

  • Faces are the same on all ages and both genders, including babies.
  • All are fully custom, non-default, non-geneticized, non-townie friendly - normal custom skintones.
  • Nipples on females, barbie below the waist.

I found it very "creative" that you would put them covering up each other in some ways.

Thank you for making and sharing these lovely skintones.
I'm using Blush, Subtlety, Innuendo and Intuition as default replacements in my game, and they are just wonderful to look at - so much better then the EAxis defaults.
Thank you for making my sims look better!

Ooh! HP,they're gorgeous! You're so talented, girl. By the way, IDK if you intended that, but one of your male modles looks like Taylor Lautner from Twilight.

Love your stuff! I have whole folders dedicated to your creations in my downloads folder, and I had an older version of your skins. Today I stumbled across these skins (yes, I'm 6 years and decided I have to have them. My only problem is they aren't a default, which means I'll need to make some new Sims.... ;-) I don't like over-crowding, so I'll have to creatively dispose of some of the ones I don't play very often. *evil laugh* But I really look forward to seeing these skins in action!!!

I was having such a hard time trying to find a skin that really spoke to me personally and shouted "PICK ME," but this is the one! Thank you very much. The pictures were great - they really sold me, as did the lack of makeup! They still look so great even without makeup! I love it!
