Should work with base game alone if you use Clean Installer http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/
Please try this before you post that you can’t install it. I do have all expansion packs installed, but none of the content should require them.

Summersong86 has come up with some great skintones. They are beautifully suited to fantasy sims I think.

Luthien is an elvish character that predates the Lord of The Rings trilogy. The story of Arwen and Aragorn is supposed to be a reflection of the story of Luthien and Beren (a mortal man). It’s rather sweet that Tolkien inscribed “Luthien” on his wife Edith’s grave and when he passed on, had “Beren” inscribed on his.

Custom content included with Luthien:

Our sims would all be so dull without her creations.

Summersong86: Skintone “Med630alo”
See the link to her work above.

Dress by Miien:

Check out her profile, some really great LOTR clothes and other things too.

Hair texture by Seomi, “Princess Hair”:

Lots of great hair here.

Eyes by Steamed-pepsi:

I think these have an ethereal look to them. My current favorite elf eyes

Elf ears recolored to match the skintone.

Not Included:
Headdress by sanatory:

She has made 2 very nice head pieces. I use them all the time.

I forgot to put a picture in with the head dress. So I added a body shop one below.

You’ll need the following meshes:

For the dress, this mesh by BriAnna:
http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=43093

For the hair, mesh by Sue of XM sims:
http://www.xmsims.com/sims2/ehtm/hair/hair03.htm
This is another great site for hair

For the elf ears:

Once unzipped, all you need to install is the mesh, unless you want the recolor, it's for another project I did.

My Policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

This works fine for my neighborhoods. It's a lot more complicated with my sims though. They are full of other people's work and there is a wide variety of terms of use among them. So you shouldn't repost them as is. If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

She looks beautiful, and very much like the illustrations of her.Oddly enough, I always use this name for my sims, if I had the choice to change my name, this is what I would change it to. :p

Thanks for all the kind responses. I'm glad people enjoy what I put together.

The creators who made all the content are what makes it possible. I don't know if I'll get to Morgoth, that's a bit of a challenge. I haven't found all the neccessary elements yet.

Those ears really don't look "Leaf shaped" to me. Unless you have some REALLY weird trees in your garden.

Don't include my content (in lots, sims...) but to MTS2, including a link to my thread.

Her story always makes me sad. Breaks my heart, everytime I watch either LOTR, read the books, or am talking about it. Especially the Edith bit. I knew about that. When I found it out, I cried. I cry too much about everything Middle Earth. Beautiful sim!

I don't really like d/ling anything related to the Master, because I don't really think most people can do it right, and the movies spoiled enough as it is with their inaccuracy but this just looks great, so I couldn't resist. Thank you! :D

The link for the thread for the elf ears on MTS2 is not valid. Can you provide another link or upload the mesh yourself? Thanks.

Luckily, I had the mesh uploaded for another project of mine. I don't even have Sims 2 installed any more.
