Hello again people! The above meshes are why you've seen so little of me for a while. I've been wrangling MilkShape and SimPE to produce my first ever Sims 3 to 2 conversions - following Serenity-Fall's excellent clothing conversion tutorial, cursing when it went wrong/exploded, trying again... So far, this is the best I can do.
far from perfect - there's some grey shadows I don't seem to be able to
get rid of - so if anyone wants to improve/shoeswap, mess with the
meshes I've made, please feel free!)
Anyhow, on to the gowns...
I love these gowns, and I've wanted conversions of them forever - but I'm not actually sure why,
as they're not actually very 18th century. They're more a high-school
play version of what people vaguely think 18th century is. Ribbons?
Check. Goofy ribbons and roses absolutely EVERYWHERE? Check and check.
But I've converted them now, so my "Mean Girl" 18th century ladies can
"Mon Dieu, Reinette, that gown is so fetch!"
First off, my favourite, if only for its potential:
Country Palace Gown
is... well, it ain't 18th century, what with the puffy sleeves. But it
does look pretty darn close to a 17th century "Three
Musketeers/Cavalier" style gown, and there certainly isn't enough
clothing for Simmies there. Converted for the recolour possibilities.
Comes with fat and pregnancy morphs. Categorised as Casual and Formal.
Latest Fashion Frock
call this one the Candyfloss dress, because it's so sugary-sweet. I'm
also oddly addicted to sticking my Sims in it for portraits...Comes with
fat and pregnancy morphs, categorised as Casual and Formal. I didn't
convert it with the ribbon necklace, as VampireKiss6661 has made a
gorgeous version of this as an accessory here:http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=239
Morning in the Garden Frock
my favourite, although the skirts seriously pain me. The EA guys went
to all the trouble to do a sack-back 18th century dress, and then made
it straight up and straight down like a cheap fancy-dress costume. Bleh.
I did discover it looks lovely as an 18th century dressing gown for my
ladies to have breakfast in, so I've categorised this one as Nightwear
as well as Casual and Formal. Again, come with fat and pregnancy morphs.
only done one texture per mesh, as I didn't feel up to making a zillion
recolours. But the meshes are there for people to play with! Feel free
to edit, recolour and use away
goes to the awesome SerenityFall over at Livejournal for the tutorial,
and the very helpful davinaojoeda here at PBK for advice and support
through meshing fails.
