For some time now, my ladies have had perfectly serviceable scanties, and that's just wonderful. However, whenever you're playing any kind of themed game, things like Elder Male Swimwear tends to get the short end of the stick.


No more, I say! )

So I've had some ladies' separates done for ages, and I've always meant to do the men's stuff, too... but I kept putting it off, because I felt like I needed to get all the foundation pieces together-- enough pieces that, if you watch your colors, your Sims can just sort of go through and strip.

I finally got to that point, so I finally got to make some menswear!


I don't have a witty quote for this one. )

This year, for GoS's Blind Date event, I was Endymion and my partner, [community profile] junky, was Abelard. As I read and re-read Lace's application, I found myself thinking pirates-and-nautical and... then I got a song stuck in my head. A song I learned from Mom's old Girl Scout songbook. It's called The Mermaid, and you can listen to it here with Jesse Ferguson or here by the Black Irish Band.


Oh the ocean waves do roll/And the stormy winds do blow/While we poor sailors are skipping at the top... )

In a continuing effort to back up my Garden of Shadows exclusives to Dreamwidth, without just duplicating the original posts where they're actually MEANT to be exclusive, here are the goodies that got heraldry of one sort or another.



I am an utter nut for heraldry, and when I got invited to participate in the first Garden of Shadows advent back in 2010, somehow my brain decided heraldic stuff was entirely logical. GoS already had a perfectly cromulent color scheme (that blue is azure in Medieval heraldry (when all blues were azure), but bleu celeste later on), and plenty of charges to choose from... but you'd be amazed how hard it is to find decent line-drawings of baby geese suitable for silly heraldic purposes.

Alfred Askew drew the gosling. Alfi rocks. Okay, let's get to the goodies.

There's some Pooklet'd furniture in here, too. )



In 2010, I had Plans, so many PLANS, to slap that heraldic device all over every banner, pennant, tapestry, and shield I could find. These plans... did not come to fruition. 2011 was kinder, sort of. I even built a special lot to show off everything! (Okay, I plonked down my favorite self-sufficient outpost-fortress lot and slapped bleu celeste all over it.) The following actually DOESN'T represent the full on Heraldry Project, either. Someday! Promise! In the meantime...

Welcome to Castle GoS! )

The thing about Garden of Shadows swap events like Secret santa and Christmas in July is that I am usually either insanely busy or getting my ass kicked by reality somehow. I've participated in one Secret Santa swap in 2009 (I learned to recolor objects!) and tried to participate in 2010... but had to drop out. Advent, I can usually manage (although I was on hiatus last year, so didn't get invited), mostly because I get to create a gift for Garden of Shadows, not one specific person I have to stalk.

So when the Blind Date swap was announced, I debated for like two days before I said 'hell yes lemme fill this sucker out.' A one-day doll show here in town was no sweat to get ready for-- mostly I just had to pack the car and straighten out a parking pass issue-- so I actually had the time and the lack of stress to create something.

I was Mordred, but my Blind Date was Westley, also known as Sunatharon. I really wanted to do some architectural recolors, but I ran short of time for anything but this one window I found. When I went in-game to take pictures of the window, I discovered the glass only shows from one side and the diagonal does not exist. So... yeah, no architecture. Just robes.


Most of my testerhood Sims are peasants... except the fairies. )

SO MANY THINGS needed pictures taken that this is the prettiest picture you get for this post. Please do enjoy it.

I'm gonna come right out and say it, I don't feel like these are my very best work. I was proud of them when I did them, and I'll probably use them, at least until I get around to making something better, but you've got to start somewhere, right?


It's a step in the right direction after all. )

So, some time ago, I put up some much-needed Medieval men's underwear, which you can find right here. And I was really happy with it! I still am, in fact, it's just that there have been some new meshes done, plus some conversions of some meshes, and in general it was just time to expand the chausseur's stock.


I used up my one good tag about legs. )

So, while I was on hiatus, I got bored and got to playing with meshes and textures and source material and... Well, I made a slew of Medieval clothes. No, really, I mean a whole slew of them.


Alas, a lass is what I lack, I lack a lass, alas, alack... )

There is never enough Medieval underwear... okay, for anyone, but especially for males... especially-especially for children and elders. It's not that nobody knows what they wore (even if most people assume they wore thin, stretchy joined tights, like pantyhose), but I think it's considered too easy, not challenging enough.

Well, I never met a challenge that was too easy!


All the maids look well upon him, with his well-turned legs and his flashing eyes... )
