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.
Ever found safety pins lying around your house not being used? Well, your Sims probably won't. You know why? Because they have these!

Anyone from a Sim gone green to a punk can find use for these earrings, so tell your Sims to start recycling!

You can find the original female version here: Not punk enough? Safety Pins as earrings! by the wonderful and talented blackfairy. Without her, these wouldn't exist. I thank her for letting me use the alpha, and textures from her creations. I had to do a LOT of resizing, recoloring, copying, pasting, and repositioning to get them to look mostly right, but hey. I think they turned out pretty good considering I used a COMPLETELY different mesh.

I've added a few versions with my own personal twist along with the ones she originally made. As for the silly Hello Kitty/Chococat ones, you can blame my friend for that. He literally wore those for 2 months straight (The ones with Hello kitty AND Chococat). No idea where he got them, but they grew on me, and I felt I had to add them.

DOUBLE EYE COLOR/HETEROCHROMIA?! Yeah, you'll just have to wait and see. ;D (No, they're not photoshopped.)

Brows by I DON'T KNOW. I just realized that they're un-named, and I don't remember where I got them. All I know is they weren't from a pay site(CAUSE I'M TOO CHEAP TO USE THEM). If you really want to know, try the WCIF.

For the green, pink, Hello Kitty, and Chococat ones, there are three versions each.

For the pink and Green:
There are double green, double pink and watermelon as seen below.

For the Sanrio:
There's double Hello Kitty, Double Chococat, and both together, as seen below.

(P.S. I'm aware that some of them don't actually match up properly with the ear. However, I tried to fix that, and it just got worse... So, considering you have to be SUPER close up to notice, I don't feel the need to change them.)
