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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

First of all:
the skintone here is made with te bodyskin of Louis' "self makeup" skintones. All credit for that goes to her. She is so kind to allow us creators to alter the textures and use them for our own stuff and I am so very thankful for that policy.
So again: All credit for the bodyskin goes to Sim Cribbling


To the moderators: I know this is a huge post, but these files go as a set, so I posted them together. If I cause any problems by doing that, I am sorry in advance.


Hi there ^_^

A while ago I was asked to make a "less asian" skintone (I never thought mine were very asian, but hey), so I blended a whole bunch of skintones I have made since my last upload, made new eyes, straightened the nose and added new lips.

The skintone comes in the standard colors dark, tan, light, and pale (which have the unique name "3" - since I am still so original at giving my skins names) and two more fantasy like colors, called Dawn and Ivory. Dawn is a warmer, slightly glowy version of Pale and looks nice on elves. Ivory has a greenish (blueish) tint and is suitable for vampires or (very pale) aliens.

As you can see in this pic, Dawn and Ivory come in two versions: with and without facial tatoos. Dawn has two different tatoos for male and female, Ivory has the same one for both genders. The tatoos blend into the skintone, so they do not stand out too much.

Ingame shots:

I used no makeup on the skintone models, so this is how the skins actually look ingame.

By request, I also added the tatoos as seperate facemasks to this download. They match the colors of my skintones, but feel free to recolor and use them, as long as credit is given.

And last but not least, I made matching, two-toned eyes for these skins.

Ew, they look not very flattering in this pic. The textures are actually really pretty and they look nice ingame. Please believe me! *cries*

For more ingame shots of the eyes, take a look at my skintone models, they all use them.

Happy simming!!

I'm just awed! These skins are awfully beautiful. I've been looking for some custom skins for quite some time now, as I'm not particularly found of the default ones. Then, when I found these my lower jaw just fell to my knees - I love every little detail in them. The facial features are truly unique. My Sims end up looking so realistic now! I also downloaded your Dark Skins Add-Ons, they're awesome too. I have got to say, I think I've fallen in love with these skins of yours. (=

Thank you so much, Chakaru, for making them and additionally sharing them (although I'm sure you get that a lot)!

The worst way to miss someone is when they are right beside you and yet you know you can never have them.

I would love to have these as default replacements with Dawn as the default for the light skin tone. Perfect for Elven hoods. Is there any way you can do that? I know there is a tutorial using Sim PE, but my old computer can't run Sim PE unfortunately. This is really beautiful work. Most tats show too much. Yours are perfect!
