Veetie had to drop from the Blind Date event, but this is her gift anyway. I'll link to mine in a minute. Veetie and I were paired as Pongo and Perdita.

I do plan to have my desktop reassembled before the end of the month. (Gotta find that can of air. Everything's ready but that.) Until then, I realized I do in fact have one more download I can share with you guys.


You fucked up a perfectly good monkey is what you did. Look at it. It's got anxiety. )

Good news, I got bit by the Sims bug again!

Bad news, in the midst of making a buttload of Medieval and passably-Medieval accessories, my hard drive failed. (Well, it's a six-year-old computer and this is the first real problem it's ever given me. I really don't feel TOO bad.) I'm on the laptop, which runs Sims but not well, and anyway doesn't have everything installed because last time I simmed on this machine, I was making custom CAS sets. I WILL be replacing the hard drive, which doesn't look all that difficult, and I was able to back up most of my data (I hope to be able to grab the rest of it, I just haven't, yet), but I'm not sure exactly when I'll be able to get everything together. Fall is one of those 'oh god, so busy' times for me.

Because I know people get concerned and it's been about a year since she got sick, state of the cat! )

Okay, so if you're not curious about the cat, you can skip that part and go straight to the downloads. Depending on when I can get a new hard drive, this and a tiiiiny hair dump may be the last from me for a while; it's harder to work Body Shop hotkeys on the laptop, and actually trying to run the game makes my poor little 'oh I only need it for travel, it doesn't have to be a powerhouse' laptop run hot enough to keep soup warm.



Before we duck behind the cut, I want to say that recolors of these accessories are TOTALLY welcome. Just be sure to credit not only the Simmers involved but also the folks who made the original replicas, if you recolor the replica jewelry. And maybe link me? I do so love shiny things. ALSO! Don't do paysites; some stuff uses Pooklet and Aelia's actions and they say no; most of the rest is photoskinned replica jewelry and while having pixel versions for Sims might count as parody or fair use (because it's educational!), only the jewelers are legally entitled to make money off their hard work.

Fair warning: you cannot layer glasses-bin accessories that use the same mesh (which I didn't know when I started this project). You get one shot with each mesh, no matter what I do to the bin numbers. Ordinarily this doesn't matter, but with the alpha-editable Liana Sims set, things get a little limited unless you can use Bon Voyage jewelry to layer different earrings and necklaces. Once you can do that, the mesh matters less than the jewelry type.

Tl:dr: Glasses-bin, one item per mesh even if it's otherwise layerable; BV Jewelry, one item per jewelry type per Sim.

Also, due to my current reduced computing circumstances, I can't actually check that I got the BV jewelry binned right. Would that I could! If I put things somewhere where they don't belong, let me know and I'll fix it. (Likewise let me know if I mangled any links. Happens, sometimes.)

Well, let's stop dithering and get to downloading! Twenty-Seven accessories lurk behind this cut! )

Thank you for reading and for downloading! If you've made it all the way down here, I have one last thing to mention: because I have to buy a new hard drive, I have to rattle the tip jar.






If you want to chip in to help make my new hard drive a kickass hard drive, or maybe to get the last two gigs of RAM my desktop has room for, or to help me get the parts I need to finish refurbishing my kiln, or even if you just want to throw loose change at me while shouting to post pictures of my cat, I would dearly appreciate it. (Also, I'm willing to exchange requests within my skillset for $5-minimum donations-- it's not pay content because everybody gets to download it for free in the end. Message (OpenID PMs should work) or email me at almightyhat AT yahoo.com to hash out details if you're interested.)

My Blind Date was GodLimpingBy, and the goodies I made for 'em are up for download!

(Most of the content is going to end up here, either with more of the same or in an altered state, but a) I'm not up to that yet and b) I'm not reposting GLB's private hair dump unless GoS has issues again.)
hat_plays_sims: All I did was crop-- go read Bite Me by Dylan Meconis, you'll laugh. (Default)
I've been meaning to get this one up for a while now, and what better time than while I'm waiting to see if my Blind Date will share their goodies?


A little hard work never hurt anyone. )

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! )
hat_plays_sims: All I did was crop-- go read Bite Me by Dylan Meconis, you'll laugh. (Default)
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. )

Behind the cut lurk nineteen hairs for your downloading pleasure.

Since there are a zillion downloads inside the cut, the boilerplate goes outside the cut, so...

NO PAYSITES. Mesh creators' policies may vary, my policy says I want a cut (like that would ever happen), but Pooklet says no and these are Pooklet's actions. So no paysites.

PRAISE BE UNTO: Mel/Rented Space, Cynnix, Trapping, Digital Angels, Dicreasy, Milano Sims, Cazy, Marja, and Clubkitty for meshes (I may have left someone out, lots of TS3 conversions this time), Nouk, Pooklet, Trapping, and Aquilegia for textures, Lyn for making sure I had a working copy of Photoshop, Pooklet for making sure Project Mayhem worked with my copy of Photoshop (and for their textures), my lovely donors who make sure I can keep my photos online (which lets me post hair dumps at all), and you lot for being patient with my long radio silences.

HEY LISTEN! Meshes are included unless otherwise noted. Swatches are included in the zip files, everything is compressorized. Poly counts may vary; MAKE NOTES. Elders go gray, but you also get Time Bomb in the custom bin, just in case Primer isn't platinum enough for you. All female hairs are maternity-wear enabled from teen and up, and all male hairs from YA and up, to stop the weird hair disappearing act that happens if you don't have a Pregnant Sims Wear Any Outfit hack (but why wouldn't you?).

ANNOYING THINGS I DO: Because I credit everybody in them, my folder and file names are stupidly long. Feel free to shorten one, the other, or both as you please-- better you edit them to suit your needs than I just name everything [COLOR NAME] and cheese everybody off, right? Also, each hair color has an elder gray attached instead of only black. Feel free to re-bin everything and cut out the extra grays, or only use one family but swap out textures so your elders have some variety, whatever. Likewise, I bin using Pooklet's original scheme, because it's a nice easy default. I totally do not care if you re-bin things to suit your own tastes (but hey, every hair has a gray attached in case you need it!), and neither does Pooklet, so do whatever makes you happy, binning-wise.

EVEN MORE ANNOYING: Everybody sees a hair dump, so...







Anything helps, yo.


Should you donate, you are entitled to make a request-- something off my hair list or my to-do list or even just a straight-up request, and if I've got the skills for it, I'll give it a go. (Once it's done, it's free for everybody to download, of course, and I make no promises about just when I'll get to something I promise to do.) I will also happily barter stuff on my to-do lists or requests for things I wish existed that do not yet exist or in-game preview photos of some of these hairs so I can upload them to GoS once in a while.

Yes, if you want to do the unnaturals, please feel free to do the unnaturals. I have no plans to do so. Just remember to credit properly-- I tend to use Nouk's waves, FR's braid, and a chunk of curve I stole off Ja's Uni ponytail default.

If you spot any broken links or other idiocy, please let me know!

There are NUMBER large pics behind the cut, cats and kittens. Dial-up users beware.

I keep taking and cropping pics to entertain one of my long-term partners-in-crime, and I'm bored and procrastinating taking the garbage out, so I must clearly post tons of pictures of Sims being Sims with occasional goofy captions. Beware for occasional nudity with strategically placed... all kinds of things.

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... )

Normally I don't do this, but apparently throwing character Sims in a house to model stuff makes me poke at them for hours. I took pics to share with a friend, and... well, why not share them with everyone?

And Dagger Outtakes )

Straight-up picspam. )



And that's the end of my picspam, in which horrible people make ridiculous faces and make me go 'why are you doing that?' at them.

YOU GUYS why didn't anyone tell me that Cynnix made an articulated cloak last October? I mean, sure, I still want more, but ANY is a real good start. Basically as soon as I found it, I started planning what I was going to do with it.


We are 100% horrible people, and I'm extremely happy we are friends. )

Everything inside is binned like a hair dump even if it's not technically a hair, so here's my title card:

The VERY LAST POST I have to make to back up my GoS advent goodies.



Let's start with the altar niche, it's cool. )



If you play a Medieval game, the best thing about the University expansion is the Medieval furniture set. Eva already slapped some Project Mayhem onto the double bed, which you can find right here, so I didn't reinvent the wheel on that one-- I just did everything else to go with it.

This set requires University, obviously. )
hat_plays_sims: All I did was crop-- go read Bite Me by Dylan Meconis, you'll laugh. (Default)
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! )
hat_plays_sims: All I did was crop-- go read Bite Me by Dylan Meconis, you'll laugh. (Default)
So, I wander away from Sims for a few weeks (it happens. I mean, I did a mini show, got sick, went to Disneyland, wrote a 40,000-word Aladdin fanfic, got an AO3 account, and next weekend is Halloween and my last doll show of the year, I've been busy) and GoS goes down. Alarming! So here's me late to the 'guess I better make some backup posts for my GoS exclusives' party.



This post is only for hiders, and it is a goddamn hider-y masterpost. )
hat_plays_sims: All I did was crop-- go read Bite Me by Dylan Meconis, you'll laugh. (Default)
Oh MAN I've been wanting to do this one for ages! Luckily, the longer I waited, the better the available meshes got. Patience is a virtue, AND I knew exactly how I wanted to tackle the textures by the time I got around to actually, you know, making them.
