Hey guys,
Just a head-up for an object fix: Somehow the Eluvian mirror and my antique wall plate ended up with the same GUID, making only one or the other show up, and potentially crashing lots. I fixed the Eluvian and the recolours, so please redownload it if you have it:

ETA
Please also redownload the Spencer/Spender candles. I fixed another GUID conflict with wallsconce1, and both wall sconces should be properly recolourable, now.

Hopefully that'll be all for my fail for a while, hah.

Here are some requested sims. Kenji was my favourite model of the Advent bunch and Yasmina was a figurant sim. I just needed to have a lady with this glorious frohawk in my game.
The earrings Yasmina is wearing are Juice's originals. They were borked, but I fixed the packages so they don't replace the glasses they were cloned from any more, and aren't as horizontally stretched. I just really wanted those iron hook thingies no matter what.

ETA: I forgot to add this when I first posted, but I redid yet another older outfit (Ausencia 2.0). I edited the textures, fixed clipping issues and added Tenshii's smoother hands (also has an optional Maxis hands version though).

Happy Lunar New Year! Here's a little gift for those who celebrate it. :D (and anyone else who may find use for it XP)

This is a changshan/changpao, the male equivalent of the qipao. This style of dress was introduced by the Manchu in China during the Qing Dynasty (around the 17th century), replacing the traditional hanfu as everyday attire by order of law. Nowadays they are mainly used as formal wear. There's already a lovely mesh for it around, but I wanted a more fitted version with wider sleeves because of reasons.

Just one caveat: Poses (from poseboxes) that have the sim cross their legs will look horrendous with this. I checked similar meshes (e.g. long dresses with splits/visible ankles) to try and fix it, but they all have this problem due to the way they're meshed. It's just a posebox thing though, all the normal EAxis animations -from tai chi to sofa jumping- should cause no problems.

All parts based on Maxis stuff save for Tenshii~Akari's hands, textures are my own.

Optional: Maxis hands mesh.


And because one mesh fix a day keeps the holes away, I almost completely redid this outfit here to improve the animation, mapping and textures and add smoother hands. The difference isn't as drastic as the previous outfits, but it just looks neater and less sloppy.

ETA: I fixed a lame floating vertex on the right hand of the Aldebaran outfit from the GoS Advent, so please redownload. Must have happened when I fixed the shoes. Gah, what am I like.

I'm cleaning up my Dreamwidth a bit to remove broken links, add tags, a more gratuitous use of cuts, delete things I no longer like (some sims and hairs, mostly) and add little mesh information blurbs in all the clothing posts.

I also updated this mesh, so please redownload if you had it. There were some minor animation issues and I added morphs, which it was missing before. I also made an optional version of it with Maxis hands instead of Tenshii's hands, because I noticed a significant interest in those.

ETA: Fixed two more meshes to add morphs and fix some huge animation issues. I also added smoother hands and an optional Maxis hands mesh for them. Please update them if you have them - the difference is significant.

And because this post looks so text-y and empty now, have some picspam! This was a set I'd made back in 2009, but it always seemed to lack something. I just decided to move things around drastically and fiddle with the lighting.

Vincent's and Seyzei's basement.

Just a heads-up: I am slowly revisiting all my clothing meshes to fix animation problems and add Tenshii's smooth hands.
If you have this outfit in your game, please delete and redownload it. Along with better hands and hole-fixing, I improved the black tux texture, replaced the ugly white waistcoat with just the plain shirt and slightly edited the black waistcoat. I even remade the morphs, but Milkshape acted up and wouldn't export them, alas.

The outfit in question. )

Next are some trinkets for you. See them as a little Secret Santa gift. :D

First up are these masks from ACII. I extracted them from a mask stall extracted by Kativip, added shadows and retextured the little wooden stand (the stand in the picture still has the old texture, but you'll see). There are three items: The masks on the stand, the hanging ones on the wall, and the group of masks in the left corner. The mask in the middle is by Vitasims and not included.

Next are these little red lanterns I extracted from some game environment. I don't even remember what it was called, but there you go. One for the wall, one for the ceiling and a table lamp. They give off soft light, not halogen-like sunbeams.

Third are 6 pieces of Japanese art on a Maxis mesh ('Cantankerous Splatters') from Night Life. Most of these are from 16th-17th century artists and are now in possession of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Fourth are some retextures of a Maxis mirror called 'Vision Mirror "Part Reflections"' (which my game says is base game? I've no idea D:). I liked the idea behind the frame, but the default textures are way too low-res, so I finally got off my arse to do something about it.

Moved here!


Lastly, history photography by Erwin Olaf (<3) on some underused painting meshes by OM at Avalon. These scenes are meant to emulate the style of the Dutch school, and were commissioned by Leiden University back in October to commemorate the Siege of Leiden. There are 9 pictures in total, and I also included 4 recolours of a pretty frame that came with another recolour by OM. The small frame is the master mesh, so don't delete that one.

That'll be all from me for now. Happy Holidays!
