This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Tired of the yellow splatters across your Good Witches faces?
Unhappy with the disease-resembling 'sparkles' all over your witches hands?

Magic Dust - the end of the yellow witch plague!

I got tired of there being such a limited supply of Good Witch overlays - so I decided to make my own.

With the help of Merkaba's *.package file, which she generously allowed me to use, I cut apart and experimented and painted and cursed EA for their horrible Witch skin, and came up with this sparkly default of my own.

Magic Dust comes in three colours:

My favourite, Galaxy Blue - A royal blue and silver-blue mix which shows up well on both light and dark skintones

Coral Blue - A green, blue and silvery overlay, for when your witches just aren't conspicuous enough

and finally, Tyrian Purple - A purple, pink and light blue mixture, slightly more subtle and perfect for when you're tired of all the blue that EA put in your game.

These are DEFAULTS, which means they replace the EA yellow splatters, and you can only have ONE good witch default in your game at a time.

To install, just stick it in your downloads folder - to uninstall, just take it out.

-There IS some pixellation around certain parts of the texture - mostly the back, and very slightly around the shoulder seams. Despite my best efforts, I could only reduce it to what it is now - hopefully it isn't too noticable!

- Male and female Good Witches use the same textures! This means that the markings on the male and female sims are identical, so I tried to keep the sparkles from being too girly on the guys and too masculine on the girls. This also means that there are no gender-specific details, just sparkly goodness.

-You can do what you like with the texture, as long as your creation is NOT uploaded to a paysite. However, the default package isn't mine - it's Merkaba's - so you'll need to get her permission if you want to do something with that.

A very big and sparkly special thanks to Merkaba (http://www.modthesims.info/member.php?u=1373494), who was kind enough to let me pull apart her default package to make my own. <3
