Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've been waiting for a Dumbledore to resemble Michael Gambon's portrayal.
Now, I've done my best to create him myself.
Enjoy :o)

Everything You NEED to Know

1. Dumbledore's Cap is a recolor of the "Seminole Hat" created by
Alexarosa. The mesh for the hat must be downloaded here! The file you need is in the first post and is titled "".

2. Dumbledore's Hair is a mesh edit and recolor of the Simply Natural hair by Divino Sims, however the site is no longer running and no policies were enacted, so I'm included the mesh, seeing as I edited it myself anyway.

3. Dumbledore's Skin was created by me, and you can download an alternative version that includes his injured hand.

4. Dumbledore's glasses require a mesh that can be downloaded here! The glasses themselves were created by icedmango over at GoS. They were included with permission and the entire collection can be seen here.

5. The beard included was originally from the TS2 Holiday Pack, however, by downloading some meshes you can have the fully functioning beard in your game w/o the holiday pack! To do so you must download "MTS2_173806_dewshine_WintermuteaiFuManchueAnd_Mesh.rar" from here, ALL FILES from here, and "" from here!

6. The mesh for the robes must be downloaded from here!
The file is "DP-Men-WizPrince.rar" and it is in the Medieval Men clothing post. The texture is a recolor used with permission (and much thanks) from Sherahbim and they can all be found here!

Brilliant work! He looks like he is from a page of a beautifully illustrated storybook. The styling is exquisite.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.

I installed Dumbledore like I was supposed to, but I can't get him to come up in the game. How do I get him into the game? He's not in the make sim option menu anywhere.

Something from this Dumbledore crashes my game. It works fine when I put him in the CAS, but when I put him in a lot, it crashes. Anyone know how to solve it? I really like this Dumbledore.
