Happy Early Christmas from me! I won’t do an advent like last year since I’m too busy with school, but I made a small gift that hopefully people will like! There are letterman jacket recolours and some shorts with stockings which are probably already done so many times already but hey who gives a heck
Swatches and previews included, files are named like usual, enjoy!

Challenge Three: Holiday Picture Challenge 2013
While Rose isn’t really fond of human food and can’t stomach anything as heavy as the turkey, she can get behind the idea of a holiday that celebrates the blessings of the earth’s harvest and the bonds in one’s community. The children’s displeasure has not escaped her, however; even sweet Daisy is being fickle and prefers playing with her food to eating it.
Jules, for her part, is disgusted with the hypocrisy of her father and uncle. If this is supposed to be an O’Mackey gathering, then why is that city girl Patricia here? Worse still, despite Alexandra suddenly coming back to town, her father was staunchly against inviting her for dinner, even though Jules wanted to see her mother again. So much for family reunions.
Jason isn’t sure if he’s doing the right thing by taking Gabe’s side in spite of Jules’s wishes; he’s never had to mediate between family conflicts before. But this is the first Thanksgiving he’s had with his new name and new family, and he just wants the night to end without broken plates and hearts.

I was reading the sims Wiki, checking facts about the Tricous, and I was wondering: In your story, Kvornan and Kiernan seem to me... like lovers. But they are married to the Tricou sisters. Is there some sort of open relationship going on between all of them?
Yep, they’re polyamorous.
Hi there! You work is absolutely Faboo! Anyways, sorry to bother you but do you have any tips on doing photoshoots? Your teasers and CC preview pics always look stunning!
Thank you. :) I think the important thing is to have good lighting in game (to get rid of ugly shadows) and use a screen capture program that does high quality jpegs or pngs.
For posing, the Maxis animations are more “alive” looking than poseboxes, so for me Jaydee’s animation boxes and the painting of doom are essential. Poseboxes are useful when you need something outside of the game animations. Whenever I use one I always overlay a Maxis facial expression from Jaydee’s animation boxes, which I prefer to the facial overlays from Decorgals box. I only use those when I need to alter the expression while they’re performing a Maxis animation (such as changing the expression while they’re cuddling).
I have a few tutorials on this (which contain links to the stuff I mentioned) which you can find here.
Hi!!! Uh, WCIF the flapper dress that Titania is wearing in that pic you recently posted? And btw, I love that Christmas pic of Dina and Mortimer!
Thanks :D It’s the Vegas dress from Trapping’s advent gift last year.
Hey! WCIF the outfit that Jennicor wears in your latest interlude?
It’s a recolor of a hidden Maxis outfit, which I also removed the tattoos from. Here’s the black recolor that she was wearing.
Newsea’s Disco Heaven, all ages by Martini, in 5 of Pooklet’s colors (Volatile, Incendiary, Molotov, Depth Charge and Dynamite). Grey linked to black. Textures are by Lilith/Remi
Ear hairs, yay!
Your portrayal of Cassandra is really interesting! I really like how you portray her as more of the mysterious, elusive type that her bio could easily mean for her to be, it's a lot more fun to read then the usual goody-two-shoe ingenue she usually is made into. So, I was wondering, what are your thoughts on her? :)
She’s right at the transition between childhood and her teen years (which the sims in game skip altogether) so she’s at a difficult age and difficult to write. Cassandra of mythology was a seer who nobody believed, and it’s the same for Cassie, except in this case nobody believes her because she’s a tween. She doesn’t get along with her mother and looks up to Dina as a potential “cool aunt”. I think she grows up to be more of a Daria type with some Wednesday Addams mixed in.
I think too often people equate naivete with being a wide-eyed Disney Princess, when in my experience naive tweens and teens revel in being “edgy” and thinking they’re smarter than everyone else. Trying too hard to be grownup is a huge signifier of immaturity. A character can be naive without being like “golly gee Mr. Charlatan” and visa versa. (though by the time Cassie gets together with Don, I wouldn’t necessarily call her naive)
To have her interact with Don too much at this point would be seriously creepy, but maybe it’s a good thing she’s free of romance so that other parts of her characterization can be explored.
WCIF that hair on your last picture of Jennicor? I am ALWAYS looking for super-long Sim hair.
That’s Newsea’s forest siren. I think I’m using this retexture of it by Keoni.
