This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Trying out Sims 3 and fiddling with its workshop I figured my game would be pretty boring without some kind of fantasy clothing and although I specialise in sci-fi stuff I thought a medieval neighbourhood would be more possible in this game.

Sooo I bring you... LOTR inspired robes, fit for medieval sims as well!
They're all maxis recolors with recolorable parts and i hope someone will find these useful

Now onto some descriptions about them:

The lorien gown is made of heavy velvet, with a draped cloak, quilted sleeves and high neck. It looks best in dark colours, fit for any noble elf lady It has 2 recolorable parts, the neck plus sleeves and the cloak itself (You have to press the create a style button in cas to be able to recolor this because for some reason its not clickable, maybe a bug?)

The mirkwood gown consists of a velvet dress with a leafy pattern and floral patterned underrobe, a silky corset, emboridered belt and an intricate necklace. Not really the best choice for a woodelf but maybe on formal occasions... Its 3 recolorable parts: the base robe; the corset, sleeves, the peaking-out part of the underrobe plus the leafy pattern; the belt, necklace and the neckline.

The grey havens gown is a heavily beaded shape-hugging dress with a simple but elegant belt, shortsleeved cloak and intricate neckline. Perfect for sailing to the undying lands i think. 3 recolorable parts: belt; cloak; the robe itself

The rivendell tunic is an ankle-lenght, two-part velvet robe that closes with buttoning, has a leaf-shaped neckline and a simple belt. When your elf maiden just wants to lounge around, this could be a nice choice.
2 recolorables: collar, belt and underrobe; outerrobe

Thats about it, I hope you'll enjoy this upload, and please leave a comment about how these work in game if you decide to try them out

EDIT: Fixed the back of the mirkwood gown, please redownload!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
