Swim, Fishie, Swim!  

Since it's summer time where I am and I want to swim but haven't had much time to do so, I decided to make some swimming outfits for my sims. These are recolors of the AM Bon Voyage Swim Trunks. Bon Voyage is required. Patterns are from pattern-a-day.

I made some simple retextures of these halters by Fishie. These aren't swimwear, but I enjoyed the pun I was able to make in the title of this post. All I really did for these was add a fabric overlay, to make the tops fit in better with my game, and then do some recolors. I think I used Alfred Askew's fabric actions and CuriousB's actions and then tweaked them around. Mesh is included.

(If you'd like the PSD for this, let me know!)


These are recolors of the Seasons Pre-Order bikini. I included the seasons pre-order body shop content for convenience. The mesh is not the nicest to recolor and it tends to crunch up the textures. You'll notice this if you zoom in closely. Using bigger patterns with a white foundation seemed to help minimize this. Patterns are again from pattern-a-day.

Take Care!

I always need more swimwear! Thanks for sharing :)
May I also be the one to ask for the psds for both the trunks and the pre order bikini? I'd love to make my own patterned recolours :3

Also, I had the same problem with the pre-order bikini when I recoloured it. Sometimes I wish BodyShop didn't crunch up textures - it has ruined so many of my creations because of that!

I added the PSDs to the post!

I was so disappointed when I was doing the patterns that many patterns just didn't look good because they got all crunchy. :(
If I had been smarter, I would have saved my .bmp files and tried to smooth the textures in SimPE.

Take Care!
