Piece of Me


All of the skintones have been edited for all ages and genders. I've only edited the faces, so sorry if you don't like the bodies that go with them. Also, some skintones may be geneticized (meaning some townies and NPCs could inherit the skintones when new ones are spawned). Until I have the opportunity to change the skintones, use this tutorial about correcting them.

You will need:
1. Sim PE to either correct the geneticized skintones or to make them default. I used this wonderful tutorial here to create mine.
2. Nvidia DDS Utilities to replace the textures/images on skintones. You can download it here.
3. An image program with a batch converter (if you don't want defaults that are 30 MB each). GIMP is a free alternative to Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro.

Nicknamed Frosting
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Jessica Stam and Gemma Ward sims for nose and lips)
This my default Light skintone. It's just an edited version of 'Cupcake', only with different lips :B

Nicknamed Madonna
Credits: Selzi and Jirka/Glance (I used the Jessica Stam, Caroline Winberg, and Inguna Butane sims for lips and noses)
This is my default Medium skintone. I'm really pleased with it :D

Nicknamed Remix
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Caroline Winberg and Inguna Butane sims for nose and lips)
This is my default Tan skintone. Not bad, I think I let more of Pooklet's skintone shine through more this than the others. Her's wasn't bad to begin with either :P

Nicknamed Cocoa
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Jessica Stam sim for nose and lips)
This is my default Dark skintone. I think it turned out well, as the lips are nice but not too textured.

Nicknamed Cupcake
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Gemma Ward sim for nose and lips)
This was my default Light until I replaced it. The lips are weird.

Nicknamed Snowy
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Jessica Stam and Gemma Ward sims for nose and lips)
I originally made this to replace 'Cupcake', but I wanted the noses of the skintones to be different, and I already used Jessica's nose many times.

Nicknamed White Rabbit
Credits: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Jessica Stam and Gemma Ward sims for nose and lips)
This skintone was custom made for a Sim that I was working on before giving up.

Nicknamed Jack (with others nicknamed Ace, Queen, and King- please refer to this entry for pics of all colors)
Credits: teru_k and SimCribbling
These were originally going to be my defaults but then I moved on :P

Nicknamed Spiderwebs
Credit: Pooklet and Jirka/Glance (I used the Inguna Butane sim for nose and lips)
Not my favorite; I think the lips are too dark for the skintone.

Oh, I "made" them. I'm not great at retexturing, so I just simply recolored them. I took them off because I didn't like how the red and brown turned out, but I haven't deleted them from my box account, luckily.

The red- http://www.box.net/shared/npoglxog0g

I absolutely adore your blends, and I'm picking my faves to make them my defaults. Just to let you know though, you've got Ace uploaded as the BAK, not the PACKAGE file. :)

Um, I just wanted to say thank you. A friend of mine sent me some blends of yours that you didn't want to share out in the open, and they're just beautiful. So, thank you.

Thank you so much for all your beautiful blends and hard work, they're so wonderful and versatile when used in-game! This is Afterlight from the GoS boards, sent here with one of your shareable pretties by The Ashtray Girl. Good luck with everything, God bless always! :D

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your skin-tone blends, they are really lovely. I'm working on making them defaults right now :)

Also, is there any chance that you'll move magic, island, and conchord to an alternate account? Sorry if I sound annoying, I just love those blends.

Thanks again,

Hi, I just wanted to say that I adore your blends and wondered if you could upload these onto your 4shared account so I can download them please? I did search the folders but I couldn't find them.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

Uh, which ones in particular? I don't want to upload all of my old stuff because I'm not fond with some of them.

Basically all the ones with Pooklet's skintones as a base would be great please:

~ Frosting
~ Remix
~ Cocoa
~ Cupcake
~ Snowy
~ White Rabbit
~ Spiderwebs

I'm sorry there're so many. I just collect all the skintones I can find using these as a base, they look so good in game. If you could upload some of those for me I'd be eternally grateful! Thank you for replying so quickly!

Okay, I'll work on and off on uploading them because I don't have time to do all of them at once.

quick question?

I love all your blends and was wondering which of your newer skins (specifically the ones you posted on GoS) are geneticized? They are a must have in my game, but I want them to be inherit-able, too.

Re: quick question?

Rensim, Enayla-Oepu, and Leh-Teru_k are geneticized, as far as I know off the bat.
