This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These wings are my first project where I've made my own textures rather than recoloring or modding someone else's.

About the MESH: There are four meshes needed for these wings to show up properly in the game, and they are all included. Make sure you grab all the mesh files, even if you don't want all the colors. The different meshes are for different age groups, but each color includes all ages from toddler to elder. The meshes are by LordDragonstone @ SapphireSims2, with the exception of the toddler mesh, which is by SemiCharmedQuark @ SaphhireSims2. You have to be a member of that site to download anything from there, so I have included the meshes for your convenience. Nowhere could I find a policy forbidding mesh inclusion.

Features:

Accessory - wings can be worn with any outfit, just like glasses.

Available for all outfit categories (i.e. athletic wear, outerwear, undies, even in the shower!)

Layerable - wings can be worn with other accessories.

Available for all ages except infants.

Familied - will stay on in CAS when switching between ages, and also in game when age transitioning.

Translucent - in game, you can partially see thru the wings. Adult/YA/Elder wings do not show up see thru in Body Shop or CAS, but will be while playing.

Alpha Editable (for creators) - recolors are not limited to this shape (thanks to LDS's alpha editable wing mesh!)


Autumn, Rainbow, White, and Black shown on KSK's V3 TASTY Skintones.


Blue, Green, Purple, and Pink, designed to match Astiees' Sparlkle N' Shine Fantasy Skintones, pictured above.



The ONLY thing that annoys me about these wings is that the shadow is a big huge rectangle. I cannot figure out how to fix that. Feel free to try. I think it has to do with the mesh itself. I would just play with shadows turned off (display settings) if the shadow becomes unbearable.

If you would like to recolor, I have a few suggestions. When extracting in Body Shop, use the Adult model instead of the other ages. Also, Autumn and Purple are good base colors. Refer to my profile for my policies.

Huge thanks and bear hugs to LordDragonstone and SemiCharmedQuark for their wings meshes

Uh, maybe someday I'll explore the inner workings of TS3, but right now I'm only skilled in TS2. Is there a wings mesh out there for TS3 that I could use?

These are just wonderful! You did a good job on the details and colors. They're the most detailed accessories I've downloaded, yet they don't glitch at all (unlike some other simpler and smaller accessories). Great job!
