It's that time of year again! Yes, Christmas-in-July at GoS has come, and gone, but the goodies remain.
Firstly, I was lucky enough to have Sentate as my santa, and if you haven't already done so, you must go and grab my amazing gift:
Also, since both my own santees decided to share their gifts, I thought I might as well post them here too.
For Eva (eefje00704) I made a set of medievalish-themed stuff, including 'hood deco, walls, floors and terrains, and some recolours of the Maxis roof:
For Izza (sims_by_izza) I made a set of dresses with stompy boots, Pook'd makeup and vintage wallpapers:
( More pictures and downloads of everything under here... )
As it says on the tin really: Pinketamine's terrific conversions of Tamo's TS3 'Mock Mods', 'Basic Cat's Eyes' and 'Crystal Cat's Eyes', in all Aelia's 'Retro' colours, plus a selection of my own shades, a handful of Aelia's 'Jewel' and 'Autumn' colours, and a bonus 'Dark Tortoisheshell' recolour for the 'Mock Mods'.

This is another of those projects that just got a little out of hand...it started as a fairly simple request at GoS by DiscoNinja, and then just seemed to develop a life of its own.
Anyway, after much cajoling of SimPE to behave properly, it ended with an unholy number of recolours (errmm, I lost count to be honest) of HugeLunatic's quilted bedding, in all sorts of mix-matchy combinations of all Aelia's colours ('Retro', 'Autumn', 'Jewel' and 'Lonesome'):
To preserve everyone's sanity, somewhat, they are split into three separate sets: quilts with complementary coloured sheets/pillows (as originally requested by DiscoNinja); quilts with contrasting sheets/pillows (including 'Coastal + Summer Skin', as shown in the preview above, and also a few rather, errr, more colourful combinations); and quilts with plain white sheets/pillows.
MONSTER SWATCH OF CONTRASTING SHADES
(No swatch for the quilts with white sheets/pillows, as I'm pretty sure you can imagine what they look like!)
The swatches show the colour combinations in alphabetical order, so you should be able to match them up fairly easily with the files, and delete any that you don't want (and I'm sure there will be many).

As a bit of a bonus, just in case I haven't made a particular combination that you would have liked, you can also download the PSD file - it has one quilt layer and one sheet/pillow layer for each colour (plus a white texture for both quilt and sheet/pillow), so you can mix and match to your heart's content!
A combination of HugeLunatic and Maxis for the original texture (with a smidge of editing by me on the pillow texture), plus Aelia for all the splendid PS colour actions.
I've been meaning to do this for a while, and kept getting distracted, but since it's very nearly September... So, my santee for the GoS 'Christmas in July' fest was Aquilegia, and since she very generously decided to share her gift, I thought I'd pop it up here as well. I'm sure many people who want these will already have them, but just in case.
Anyway, it's early morning and I've not had a lot of sleep (or enough tea), so less wiffle and more downloads, yes?
( Pook'd and Aelia'd walls, Maxis-match floors and recoloured Maxis build mode sets, all under here... )
I love Ephemera's eye makeup, and I love Aelia's colours, so together I thought they would make the perfect combination. There are two sets: 'Spring', which I think of as more 'everyday' shadows, and 'Summer', which are a bit more vibrant. Oh, plus I made a couple of default-replacement sets too, mostly for my own use, but I thought perhaps one or two other people might like to give them a whirl as well. All are for both lads and lasses, teen and upwards. :)
I made these a little while ago, and then umm'd and ahh'd over posting them, since Simbic beat me to it by posting her own fabulously funky set of Aelia'd Ephemera eyeshadows. But then, I decided that mine were sufficiently different - the colours are more muted in my sets - so I'm going for it anyway!
( Come and get 'em... )
The third and final(ish) grand opening set: HugeLunatic's recolourable version of the Maxis Chic stairs, plus matching fences, in Aelia's colours. Yes, I may not be able to 'Pook' (my poor aged version of Photoshop can't cope with it), but I can 'Aelia', so I'm making the most of it!
I haven't included a separate screenshot of the fences because, well, they look just the same as the stair-rails!
DOWNLOAD STAIRS AND FENCES
HugeLunatic's meshes for both the standard and open-underneath versions of the stairs are included.
In case you're not familiar with them, they work in exactly the same way as Numenor's recolourable deck stairs: the standard stairs will override (but not permanently overwrite) the Maxis Chic stairs (simply remove them from your downloads folder if you want the Maxis version back again), and each step must be recoloured separately with the design tool once the stairs have been placed. The open-underneath stairs are repositoried to the standard stairs, so they take the textures from them, and come with a script file (also included) for installation via the Scriptorium.
Oh, and when I say this is the finalish opening set, I mean that I am intending to attack the AL wooden spiral stairs and matching fences with the same colours, plus grunge up some wrought iron spiral stairs too, when RL allows...
HugeLunatic for the stair meshes and aelia for the colours; thank you, both!
The second set of opening goodies: as requested by pinketamine at GoS, DOT's add-on sofa and chair slaved to the Maxis Satinistics loveseat for textures.
Since this is way overdue, by way of consolation I have also rustled up 18 recolours of DOT's texture using Aelia's Photoshop actions. These are recolours of the Maxis loveseat, but by the magic that is the repository technique, will also apply to the modifed sofa and chair too, as will any other recolours of the Maxis loveseat that you happen to already have kicking around in your game.
Speaking of which, can I also recommend Ja's fabulous recolours, which I believe were the inspiration for the original request (hence the name of my set is also a small homage to the name of Ja's set, as well as being a tongue-in-cheek song title reference, as usual).
There is one teeny issue with the sofa to tell you about: textures with a non-symmetrical pattern (such as one or two of Ja's) might not work terribly well on the sofa, due to the way it is mapped, and I'm afraid I couldn't do anything about this. Plain and symmetrical textures however, look just fine and dandy. And all textures work perfectly with the chair.
Also, these have different file names and GUIDs to DOT's original versions, and so won't overwrite them - you can have both in your game at once if you want, but you will need to find and delete DOT's files from your downloads folder if you don't.
Full credit to DOT for the original mesh and texture, and to aelia for the colours; I just did what I like best, and mashed them together in Photoshop and SimPE. :)
And thanks to pinketamine, for the splendid idea.
At last, some new stuff! And I'm afraid my obsession with the Maxis Bon Voyage travel poster mesh, and with genuine vintage travel posters, continues. In this set are 40 recolours of the original Maxis mesh, plus three of lmhwjs's horizontal add-on mesh.
As a bonus, I have also made 19 separate recolours of the frame, one plain white and the rest using Aelia's 'retro' Photoshop actions. Thanks to Aelia for so generously sharing them; they worked a treat and I think they really suit this mesh.
Once again, if you don't happen to have Bon Voyage, these will also work with HugeLunatic's base-game version of the Maxis mesh. The recolours of the frames and the vertical posters will also apply to karaskaras's add-on set.
( More this way, step right up... )
