This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
UPDATE 11-02-06: Now compatible for all ages/genders. Also fixed a UV mapping problem and removed the shine. Please redownload and REPLACE the old files (same filenames). You will need to re-equip existing Sims with the accessory to see the changes.

Here's Gaara's sand gourd weapon (from "Naruto"). I was planning to make the whole outfit, but I've seen several from the web already, so I made just the gourd instead since they all lack this.

The gourd mesh simply floats a small distance from the wearer's back; I don't think I can manage fully integrating it to the clothing just yet. I might (or might not) improve this in the future. The MESH file and the texture are both included in the zip.

Wearable with other glasses/accessories.

The Gaara used in the pics (by workeddream17) can be found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=193097

If you have the Pets EP installed, you will probably experience weird transparencies. Fix here: http://www.modthesims2.com/article.php?t=202520

Well you don't just click these files, you need to unzip them and put them in your Downloads folder. I can't help you on your 2nd question, but I suggest you don't ask that again here, it might get you banned.
