Genensims Skin Blends/edits  

I'm sorry I haven't been as active with my uploads and my updates.
I have a Jayne update and I have a few things almost ready for download, but I'm really crunching for time. My schedule has become so busy in such a short amount of time.
I haven't given up, though, and I'll be working on things at a slower pace, but I will be working on them.

The Sims used in previews will be uploaded tomorrow.

These skins may not be to everyone's taste. I know I've seen some users using these genensims skins with facemasks or nosemasks and I decided I wanted to just have some skins that looked fine make-up free but still had those same effects the originals intended.

The creators at genensims, peacht, ephemera, pooklet, rensim, jirka, clover, & tifa.
yreenah deserves special credit, actually, because for the skin displayed in the middle, I used her "Crisp" skin as a base and didn't even edit any of the facial features, it was the perfect shade and the face had just the right effect I wanted.
I used Pooklet skins as a base for the other two bodies, and added in some rensim.
The faces of the outer two (the patchy ones) use bits and pieces from the other creators listed above.

(female models are wearing a little bit of make-up, lipstick and eyelashes/shadow, but I've included the facefile for each of the faces so you can see up-close what the lips and eyelids really look like)

Download Custom
Download gen/town
EDIT: I would advise AGAINST downloading gen/town since they seem to pop up extremely often.

sims file share download custom

and I put up a content list sticky thing,
in case you've just discovered my journal and want to see what else I've got,
or if you'd like to see what my latest updates are.

And I will have the sims up for download, tomorrow,
because I didn't have time to go back into bodyshop to package them.
(my original plan was just to upload the sims, which is why they're all dressed and not in skin-modeling attire)

Have a nice day!

woah! Fast comment!
I'm so glad you like it! I know these skins are a little off the "normal" scale, so it's great to know someone likes them!

Okay. So. Why are sims with horrible skin pigmentation issues REALLY CUTE in the sims?! These are GORGEOUS, and make me squee quite heavily. Beautiful, inspiring job!

And, okay, now to be THAT annoying person... ^_^;;; The hair Cybele is wearing? Could you point me in the right direction to download it? Even if its just "Dude, GoS, you noob!" ? ^_^;;;

first, Cybele's hair:

I don't know why but they're just so cute! When I was making Apollo I was all "D'aww.. look at you with your little patches!"

Thank you for the comment, and I hope you enjoy the skins if you use them!

Also I have never seen a sim pull off elf-ears so well before. 0_0

Man!!! I ♥ these skins! I used one of the originals here and thought it was gorgeous! Thanks so much for this set!
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh wow, that's a wonderful photoshoot you did. You used those skins so well, and I really understood the message you were talking about. I'm so glad you'll be using these!

Amagawd. I can't even begin to express how much I love these. They're so unique. Drool worthy. As are your models!, they're gorgeous.
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 05:04 am (UTC)
Thank you thank you thank you!
I'm so glad you like them!
mjspice on September 21st, 2009 06:17 am (UTC)
OH YAY! :D I was thinking if someone could do a better edit of these. Great job! :D:D
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
Thank you! Enjoy!

Yesyesyes new skins! I've been checking your LJ every day for a new update. I think I'm getting addicted.

This is the kind of skintone that I wouldn't normally use in my game, but you make them look so good that I downloaded them anyway. I actually have a question about your fantasy skintones. Are they geneticized the way genensims does it, on another scale than the naturals, what is it again, naturals between 0 and 1, supernaturals between 1 and 2? Or are they in the natural scale?

Thank you so much for these!

needlecream on September 21st, 2009 10:27 am (UTC)
I'm sorry it took so long to update!

I geneticize my supernaturals below the maxis pale skin which is I believe .1, usually at .05 or lower so that eerily pale sim families can have supernatural babies (this is because I use pale skins for vampires and whatnot).
You can of course change this with the wardrobe wrangler and a tutorial here:

Most creators do geneticize supernaturals between 1 and 2, but that has to be done in simPE. (and I like Wardrobe Wrangler better)

These skins are set in the middle of the natural scale, around .45 - .55 so if you don't want your normal sim babies to be born like this, either swap them for the custom versions or re-geneticize them. :D

Gorgeous as always! Both the sims and the skins :) I always love your stuffs and i'm sorry i haven't commented on any of it lately. I am just not so much into a downloading mode atm, but i will come back one day and download all the gorgeousness i've missed. Are you by any chance planning on making the first and last skins into "normal" ones, without the face..spots? It's just a question, i am in no way asking you to do it just for me.
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 01:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you thank you!
Don't worry about it, I haven't been able to post much lately myself because school has started up. ;D

I wasn't planning on it, but if you'd like me to make blends using those features (lips, nose, eyes) I'd be happy to. Would you like four blends, since those two skintones use 2 different shades each?

Absolutely brilliant. You really make a difference in my game. I've been waiting for these kind of blends for awhile. Thank youuu. :)
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 01:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you for commenting!
I'm so glad these are going to be useful, I wasn't sure anyone but me would want them when I was making them. Enjoy!
sneebsey on September 21st, 2009 03:39 pm (UTC)
This made my little trekkie heart pound :P I love the duo-toned edits too.
needlecream on September 21st, 2009 07:29 pm (UTC)
I'm not a trekkie myself, but my dad is so I'm glad I was able to do some justice to it. Have fun!
cliched_lovex on September 21st, 2009 07:29 pm (UTC)
oh these are awesome! Thank you!

I have totally fallen in love with these skin blends, they are beautiful and look gorgeous in game. Thank you.
needlecream on September 22nd, 2009 03:02 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm so so happy to know you're enjoying them, thank you!
quinctia on September 22nd, 2009 02:52 am (UTC)
I am probably only going to use the first and third skin, because I don't really want random Trills popping up in my game, but they all look gorgeous. XD

Just when I think I can't possibly find more skins to put in my game...
needlecream on September 22nd, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
I completely understand! Thank you very much for commenting, and I sincerely apologize to your downloads folder.
Have fun!
kizie on September 22nd, 2009 02:11 pm (UTC)
I love these skins so much! I really liked the idea of the originals, but they didn't fit with my other skins, and that just wouldn't do. Apparently. But these are perfect! They're beautiful and make my sims look insanely adorable. Thank you so much.
needlecream on September 22nd, 2009 10:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It makes me so happy you're enjoying them!
