laudanum – adele’s gothic living

Laudanum – tincture of opium used to ease pain, encourage a fashionable pallor, and to keep babies quiet. Obsession with death is almost certainly linked to an obsession with sex, and when Victorian ladies can’t keep their dirty minds off of the piano’s legs, they need a little something to calm their, er, hysterics.

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Two recolors of Adele’s gothic living set, each with a set of 3 Aubrey Beardsley prints. It seems that the photographs for the tabletop are not recolorable at the moment; however, I have included my recolors in the event that Adele fixes whatever needs fixing.

MESHES are here: Click the “aspiration” tag at the far right, then go to page 2. Scroll down to the download links for Adele’s set.

RECOLORS are here:

WCIF for this set is here.

    I love this so much! I was wondering if I should download Adele’s set since I’m making a more Chinese neighbourhood, but these recolors settle it! They’ll find a place definitely in one of the houses ^_~ Thank you!

    (and also yay! I learnt a new word! Laudanum *nods intellectually*)

    Will this cure any nasty ailments I may have?

    If not, I know it’ll cure my desire to have more recolors of Adele’s fantastic meshes.

    I love these recolors of Adele’s gothic set but am having big problems downloading from both the sites that the download is on. I really would like these recolors. Is there an alternative way to get them? I hope you can help!

    Nouk site no longer has these meshes, but they are now avalible at Mod the Sims site. I would leave a link, but modthesims has been going in and out this weekend so I can’t get in long enough to post a direct link. It should be easy enough to find though if you search Adele’s creations.

    These recolours are utterly stunning! Thank you so much :).

    I’m also so happy that you have done WCIF lists, I am hoping that one day you will upload your recolours of those gorgeous round floor pillows, I am a sucker for non square floor pillows! lol

    (I also asked about your floor pillows in a thread of yours over at GoS, hope that was ok).

    Please excuse my ahead of time for a possibly-stupid question but in my defense< I checked the Nixy’s WCIFs page first…

    Where might I find the nifty table lamp featured in the first picture of each recolor set? Any input is greatly appreciated.
