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, Everyone! Here is my newest set of recolors; Snakeskin Mermaids, using a texture by Brendabond.
As you know, one of my more successful Sim women is the Snake Mermaid Eurydice; but after awhile, I do believe she got a little lonely, and since most of those other mermaids are just too cheerful for her, I decided to make it my duty to give her the chance to make a family. =D

I have now *REALLY* converted Brendabond's snakeskin texture to fit all ages and genders that I have available. This, of course, includes:
-Adult Male
-Young Adult Male
-Teen Male
-Teen Female
-Elder Female
-'Normal' Adult Male
-'Normal' Young Adult Male
-'Normal' Elder Male
Also available is Brendabond's original, which is for Adult Female. Will recolor Babies and Elders when released.
This is file part 1, part 2 will be released shortly.

I private messaged both Brendabond and Beosboxboy asking permission to recolor using their items(the texture, and the original mermfolk meshes), and they told me to go ahead, which I very much appreciate. =D Thanks you two.

Anyway, so that's really all there is to it. ;D I would have taken some screenshots of the merfolk swimming in a swimming pool, but I forgot to. I also apologize for bad screenshot quality, I will take better screenshot assembly as soon as I have time. xD...
Just in case anyone is unfamiliar with how the mermaid meshes work, these Sims still walk on land and all. The mermaid meshes work like clothing, but much, much more realistic. =3 It's fantastic in-game, the mesh downloads are worth the wait. None of these downloads require any expansion packs.

Here is a list of the meshes you will need:

Adult Male: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=2793
Teenagers: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=4714
Child: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=3941

To Download Adult Female:

Original Snakeskin Recolor: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=3620

As for the models, the Adult Female is my mermaid Eurydice, who is available for download. The Merman is Horacio, who will be released shortly if anyone wants him. ^^ The rest of the models are children created by combining Horacio and Eurydice's data with the "Create a Baby" option in CAS.

If you want the skintone used on the models( It's Enayla's "Alabaster" skin), go here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=122941

EDIT: In the first post of these recolors, people stated various complaints that the .package files where corrupt and not working correctly. This has been fixed now, files should work properly; sorry for the inconvinience!

Remember to credit Brendabond for her hard work on the texture. =D I give all credit for the texture to her, and all credit for the meshes to Marvine and Beosboxboy. Keep up the good work you three!

Enjoy; I have separated each recolor into a folder for convenience.
Please comment, thank & rate! =D Comments are my inspiration! ^~

EDIT: Oops! My internet died halfway through uploading the files, and it seems it lost the data of the Adult Male Bodybuilder! -slaps forehead- I'm uploading that right now; it should be approved ASAP!
