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.

Hello. It's been a while.

This pack has eyepatches for both the left and right eye, and a parrot that sits on your shoulder. The parrot comes in two colors (or species, if you will): green parrot and red macaw. All sorts of fun for decking out your pirate sims.

The parrot is assigned to the shoulder, so it will cut through the head if the shoulder moves that way, and, because sims' shoulders are slanted, sits kind of at an angle. It will also cut through some hair. You will need the MESH and at least one recolor to see the parrot. On certain face types, you may be able to see a spot of skin through the eyepatch. I wanted it close to the head, like it really would be, but I couldn't work out every kink.

You can wear these with other accessories, and with each other. You cannot wear both eyepatches at the same time. Both accessories are for males and females, child thru elder. The eyepatchs stay on all the time. All content is either by Maxis or me.

Edit: I know in the screenshot it looks like the parrot can sit on either the right or left shoulder, but it can't. It only sits on the left. I put my screenshots together in Paint, and forgot that flipping the image made it look like it was on the other shoulder. My bad.

These are just marvelous! Wuold you be willing to post the parrots as objects that could sit on a table or on a perch? (I've always wanted a parrot.)

Actually, that's not a bad idea. I am rather fond of my parrot, and wouldn't mind working with it some more. I'll put that on my list.
