Wonderland, collaboration with Shastakiss  
This download is split into two parts. You can find the wallpapers, paintings, bedding and various other recolours at Shasta's journal. Objects mostly by me and textures by shastakiss and myself.

I started converting these objects in March and asked Shasta for some advice about the textures, and wonderful, involved person that she is, she offered to do the whole project with me. This set would look very different and decidedly less magical without her creativity, attention to detail, and endless patience. There was so much gushing going on that I'm surprised we managed to get anything done, but here it is!

The recolours roughly fall into four camps; green and white, blue and brown, red and black, and yellow/black/white/fuchsia/teal. Shasta made some lovely metal shades for the green and blue sets and went around and recoloured every handle and knob she could find, so huge kudos to her.

I fixed some things I'd already converted before, so if you had the old teapot lights just delete them and use the new ones so they all look the same. I included wall clock, key, and lock painting. I went ahead and added the teacup chairs too so you can have them all in the same place. Also, make sure to get the updated and separated chess paintings from Shasta since they have two recolourable subsets now.

The floor lamp requires AL and the dressers Seasons.

The bunny rugs are by misty_fluff and I've been abusing them so much with this set.

And thank *you* so much for all the lovely memories I'll have of this, it's just been the most fun I've ever had working on a set. <3 I hope we can work together again in the future.

First let me just say, that you've been missed and so have your wonderful downloads. :)

Now, on to the goodies....
Wow...just wow! This is beyond fantastic!! Back when I played TS3, I built some unique homes using this set. Think this time around (for TS2), a few themed community lots for the kiddies, and even a fun hotel might be in order. Thanks so much for this...and love the first screenshot by the way.

Edit: Thank you for the collection file! As a clutter addict, having things group together really makes me happy...lol.

Thank you, Uni ate me up for a while there but I'm back now and all a-flutter over all the new stuff I want to convert on top of the old ones.

I'm very interested in what you've built! Do you have a tumblr or somewhere you post pictures? I've been working on a house that I'll upload later and a formal restaurant, but I'd love to see what you come up with. A lot for the kids sounds lovely!

The collection file was all Shasta but completely agree with you. I'll have to learn how to make and share them!

Thank you for sharing. Everything is perfection and that book-legged desk is giving me life.
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 1st July 2013 04:08 (UTC)
Thank you! The desk is one of my favourites too.

Great stuff! Love the red and black recolor, it seems to fit in well with the Teen Style Stuff furniture sets. :)
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 1st July 2013 05:40 (UTC)
Thank you! Shasta and I just talked about that yesterday. I'm afraid I'm already sort of working on it... :X

She's also to blame for that colour combination. She made the walls first and then I just had to recolour everything to match them.

Firstly, congratulations on the doors and windows. I bet you had a lot of fun with the wall masks. :D
Secondly, this is surely one of Maxis' most imaginative sets (and a dream for storytellers) and I'm so delighted that it has now been fully converted. You and Shastakiss did a great job with this project, and if there aren't to be the most whimsical and inspirational pictures and stories coming out of this, I'll eat my hat and swallow the buckle whole :)
Thirdly, good to hear you have more time for your hobbies now. All work and no play is no fun at all. :)
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 1st July 2013 05:45 (UTC)
The diagonal wall masks! XD Oh, the humanity! I'm still working on the one for the keyhole window which is why it's been delayed. Hopefully I'll e able to upload it later on.

Thank you so much, that means a lot coming for you. I hope you're right about stories, I would love to read some! Eventually I hope to convert some of the Alice: Madness Returns things that are available for TS3, I just need to contact the creators and ask for permission and wrap up some other projects.

Ohh Shasta told me about this project on skype and I'm really glad to finally see it here! Everything looks awesome, you both did a wonderful job. Thank you so much!
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 1st July 2013 05:46 (UTC)
Thank you! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. I had such a wonderful time working with Shasta that this automatically is the project closest to my heart now.

What. A fantastic set. To die for.

Just one suggestion (and it is just a suggestion, you can feel free to ignore it. :) ) Ts2 doesn't much like loading things more than two subfolders deep, it gets a bit slow. Would you consider, next time you upload, not putting every item in a separate folder? It's a lot of clicking to extract them all. Again, it's such a silly little thing, but maybe that would save you a bit of time as well.

Cheers and thanks again for the groovy content!
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 1st July 2013 07:46 (UTC)
Thank you for the headsup! I usually don't do it that way but thought it'd be easier for people to pick out what they did/didn't want. I'll keep that in mind for next time. :)
Sophie: Lovesophie10 on 1st July 2013 09:16 (UTC)
Wheeeeeeeeeee! I have been keeping my fingers crossed that someone would convert more of this set. I have wanted to make a Wonderland-themed cafe and now I can get it done. Many thanks to you and Shasta, I'm going to have so much fun with this set!
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 2nd July 2013 04:40 (UTC)
Thank you, I hope you'll get much use out of it!

These stuff are just amazing! I love them, I love everything about them! Can't wait to see the rest of this set. Are you planning to convert the bathtub too? I want to have an amazing bathroom from wonderland!
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 2nd July 2013 04:42 (UTC)
Thank you! I actually converted the bathtub some time ago but it has a problem I'm not sure how to fix. The "block" of bathwater that's usually hidden at the bottom of the mesh sort of sticks out on this one, so I'll see what I can do but no promises, sadly. :)

Thank you! :D I'm glad to see there's so many fans of the wonderland set out there. And thank you for saying that, I'm a little bit in love with her myself after this!
