If I Had Any Desire...  
Large-ish update.

So, I've made a set of eyes... which I suppose is a bit suprising, since I pretty much focus excusively on (adult) clothes. However, lately I have been playing around with skintones (a secret: I love dark skintones - so much, apparently, that I suddenly noticed I hardly had any really light ones) and that pretty shiny eye on Pooklet's skinbases made me want to try. Althought they look nothing like it, I am almost insanely pleased with how they turned out (I apologize for this lack of modesty ;P), so... here we are.


The texture of the eyes is hand painted; the sclera is Anva's, so credits go to her for this.
The .rar file contains both genticized/townified and costum versions, so please chose which one you want and delete the other. An ingame close-up can be seen here.


Second, a simple wooldress.

I have played around with this idea quite a while: on my first try I disliked the way the mesh looked, on the second I disliked the textures. I dumped the project for a while, however, when I recently added some of Neena's dresses to my downloads and took a close look at the textures, I thought I might just end up using those instead. They did not fit on the mesh, however, due to some horrendous UV mapping on my part. So, I went and fixed the mesh... and fixed my own textures while I was at it, too. I still owe credit to Neena for inspiration, since they ended up looking a bit similar to hers in the end, and I also decided to add wedges, since they fit the style much better than the ones I used before. This is why I am holding his monoloque... ;P

Please note: there might be some clipping around the hem of the dress. This can also be seen on Maxis' meshes, and since the hem is uneven, too, I am afraid I can do not better.

Texture on the shoes is by Maxis; the rest by me. Colours include red/blue/teal/green/violet/brown/black/grey.


Also, I decided to post the tweaked cargian mesh which could be seen on the preview picture for the cuffed jeans. It only differs from my older cardigan mesh in that there will be no more texture overlapping (wich happend once in a while despite of all the changes in mapping I did on that one), and I wanted to be able to pair the mesh with high waisted skirts.
I know there is a (suprisingly) large number of recolours out there you surely prefer to keep, so this mesh is independent and does not overwrite the old one. If one of you knows of a better solution, please, give me a shout.
Textures are by Maxis. Colours: green/blue/teal/red/pink/black.
EDIT: added picture. ;)


And a tiny something as last:

This is basically the skirt part of that strange frill blouse combo I did a while back. I feel a little bit silly posting this, since I stumbled over those high waisted skirts Aelia did just yesterday. However, I have had the mesh in my game a while now, so I decided to fix the recolour and make an additional one (black with blue shoes), and leave it up to you whether you'd like to have it or not. ^^;
Textures are Maxis. Just the two recolours.

That wool dress is so simple and just lovely ♥

These are all so wonderful! I especially like the wool dress.. I've wanted a mesh like that for a long time, would you mind if I made recolors/retextures?

and as for the eyes, it's ironic because I just deleted a bunch of sets from my game today, and then I looked at your in-game preview and my jaw dropped. I'll be happy to have these. ;D

Thank you for your nice comments, guys. And I am a little suprised the wooldress is so well liked. ;P

Needlecream, I would not mind at all.^^

Everything is great. I really like the eyes. I'm pretty picky about eyes so I'm always on the look out for more that fit my style.

I adore the wool dress. My game is a bit lacking in simple dresses and I really love the style.

I absolutely love the skirt-I can never have enough high waisted skirts.

Thank you. :D
