This is Vana, “The Ever Young”. She is associated with flowers and they are said to spring up around her as she walks. She is the sister of Yavanna.

Custom Content included:

*I received permission to use all this content either through the artist’s policy statement or a direct request for permission.*

Barcelonista: Eyeliner
Great eyes, brows, skintones, you name it!

Enayla: Eyes (northern lights) and skintone (pixie glow)
She’s back! And better than ever! I didn’t think she could possibly improve on her previous work, but she has. This particular skintone is my absolute favorite.

Helaene: 827 brows-blonde
Our sims would all be so dull without her creations.

Hair texture by Seomi, “Princess Hair”:
Lots of great hair here.

Dress and flower garland recolors by me. These took me an absurdly long time to do. They are tolerable, but if anyone feels inspired, I’d love something better.

I also put Enayla’s texture on the elf-ears.

You’ll need the following meshes:

For the hair, mesh by Sue of XM sims:
This is another great site for hair

For the dress, mesh by Gara: (GR_ModEOtf027)
This site has wonderful medieval clothing and objects. One of my favorite sites.
Click “Everyday” under Female, then “Entire Outfit”, then any of the plain long dress thumbnails on page 2, then “Download Gara Mesh”.

For the hair garland, mesh by Rose of Rosesims
Really wonderful site for fantasy things, beautiful hair too. Find the mesh on page 4 of accessories.

For the elf ears:
Go to reply #11 by FalseZen, Fairy/Fae/Faerie/Pixie/Elf section, Sim Cribbing Elf Ears
Once unzipped, all you need to install is the mesh, unless you want the rest.

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.**

I know this thread is almost a year old but I just had to tell you how much I love this sim, the shape of the eyes are simply beautiful. I use the shape of the eyes for several different sims I just change hair, etc. I like them that much and you know when I had done a clear up of my downloads folder somehow she got deleted I paniced but low an behold its still here, thanks again hope you are still simming so you can make more sims.

Glad you find her so useful. I occasionally upload to insim, but I'm pretty sporadic.
