Tudor Gowns and Hoods

I had a request at the PlumbBob Keep by Heloise for recolours of the Anne of Cleves dress at All About Style. I reworked the bodice of the gown as it had some shadow issues, then thought .... "What would Tudor gowns be without the proper headwear?" So, I ended up making matching recolours using the French Hood and Gable Hood by Bipsouille. I wasn't comfortable in redoing the actual hair within the French Hood mesh, so Sunni was kind enough to Pooklet'd her favourite selections for the basic hair colours -- Black, Brunette, Blonde, Redhead and Elder. And this is the set that I recoloured for Heloise. I hope you enjoy them.

Download Tudor Gowns and Hoods
The download zipfile includes 3 separate zips for each -- Gowns, French Hoods and Gable Hoods. All necessary meshes are included. (Dress mesh was featured at the now-closed SimAges site). Each object has it's corresponding number so that you may delete the recolours you don't want within your game. However, I forgot to make a matching recolour of the French Hood for the "wawa-tudor26" dress. Ooops!

Wawa, would you be willing to do a recolor for me? I still cannot get on PBK, idky, If so here are the links to the dress I would like recolored, and the recolor I am looking for. I'm would really love to have a matching set for ceremonial purposes. Naturally these are for my royal sims. If not I understand. I just love the recolors you do.

Either the Dance Damask or Blue Embroidered would work
