Okay, as soon as I saw the latest Conversion theme over at GOS, I HAD to do something for it - I've been on a retro gaming kick at the moment, and Makin' Magic was one of my favourite Sims 1 games as it had gorgeous Victorian stuff. It always reminded me of Anne of Green Gables...
the pastel Edwardian dresses? They were in slightly different colours
for each skin tone, but you could only wear one - Sims 2 and an infinite
capability for recolours means an end to such shameful wardrobe
segregation. Recolours for all!
First off, the original Makin' Magic pastel colours - cream, pink and blue, as worn by umpteen Sims wandering around Magic Town.
also added a little extra - a leafy green, a nice lilac purple, and a
white, for those Edwardian brides who want to get married properly...
finally, the last two recolours in black and grey, for any Sims wishing
to go into mourning. I think I had Cornelia Goth pretty heavily in mind
when I did the darker recolours...
comes in FA and FT, as Skell did a fantastic age conversion for teens,
and can be found in everyday - although they're also placed in formal
for teens. All meshes are included as per their creator's generous terms

Texture credits - Yandere and Skell. I just mucked about with stripe and lace textures a bit...
Go grab them over at GOS here...

Long time, no see, fellow bloggers! I've got about a bazillion projects on the go at the moment I need to post sometime here, but this is probably one of my favourites.
I recently got into the ABC TV series Once Upon a Time, and since there are some awesome creators making stuff from the show already over at the Plumb Bob Keep (StephSim and VampireKiss I'm looking at you! :D), I figured I'd contribute my bit, with some clothes for Belle, as played by the lovely Emilie de Ravin. These are all the most memorable 'Enchanted Forest' clothes I could find ( I didn't bother with her strange mini-dresses from Storybrooke)
Okay, onto the close-ups dress by dress:
Belle's Blue Dress:
Uses Skell's lovely "Vintage Prom Dress" mesh. I used some of her textures on the skirts to make sure it draped right. Probably one of Belle's most iconic looks, along with
Belle's Yellow Dress:
This uses the same "Vintage Prom Dress" mesh. I made recolours for this in blue, pink, white and lilac as a nice alternate ballgown for other fairytale princesses.
But that's enough fairytale whimsy - what about the more kick-ass outfits for Belle?
Belle's Huntress Outfit:
I've done a variety of recolours in black, dark red, green, blue, and dark purple for this. The mesh used is antka's This Old Armor Dress with Yuxi's boots shoeswapped onto it, which I've turned into tunic and hose! (I had the fantastically creative Winter in mind, as she has a lot of lovely strong medieval women happy to get out there and adventure) The gloves are separate accessory recolours on Skell's "Naughty But Nice" Advent gift mesh.
And (erm, my least favourite, but the costume designers on OUAT made it, so... *shrugs*)
Belle's "Pantomime Pageboy" outfit:
They're separates - a recolour of Migamoo's booted pant set, and the Maxis cardigan top recolour. Didn't make any recolours for this, as I dislike this one too much)
Belle's Purple Dress:
I think this is a season 3 or 4 OUAT outfit, and as such hasn't got too much love from the fans, but I saw it right away and loved it to pieces! This is a top and a skirt - the skirt a recolour of YanderePlumSim's lovely Secret Santa gift to Skell this year, and the top a recolour of Hysterical Paroxysm's untuckable top over at MTS. I also made recolours of the top to match with YanderePlumSim's original range of skirts, so your Sims can have quirky dresses in a whole range of colours if you've already got her skirts!
But wait - what about accessories, I hear you say? Where are the cloaks?
Belle's Green Hooded Cloak
Based on Cynnix's Hooded Cloak mesh.
Belle's Red Jacquard Cloak:
Based on Cynnix's Caped Cloak mesh.
All meshes are included with gracious permission from their generous creators apart from the Skell gloves for Belle's Huntress outfit (I forgot about them, oops) but you can find them easily on her Tumblr.
