Aww, thank you so much! <3 I’m so sorry about how late this reply is, but I really didn’t know what to say (when and if I’d be able to get back to it) until I got a chance to work on it some more. But I can tell you with 100% certainty that I am continuing with my bachelor challenge, and as a matter of fact I’m writing up some new posts right now! So expect an update later tonight, if you see this sweet non. =D
This blog is strictly for sims content, and any exceptions will be tagged “non-sims” for easy blocking. Also, I track the tag “buckleysims”.
Festival grounds are a pain in the ass. They’re like five separate lots in one (the four seasons plus that obnoxious construction period), and it takes at least five times as long to make/test/upload one.
This lot was going to be my 400 followers gift, but I can’t find the motivation to work on it anymore. It’s actually 100% done, except for the preview pictures and a no store content version (if I make one), but I’m bored. Maybe tomorrow. XD
flabbergasted a little bit surprised when I couldn’t find a decent looking Golden Retriever for download anywhere, so I made my own. He’s definitely still a WIP, but I think I’m getting closer? If anyone has suggestions or feedback, I’d love to hear it. =D
Just to clarify, my mod doesn’t stop sims from gaining influence. It just stops the popups from showing up all the time. =) If you want to slow down the rate at which your sims gain influence, try this incredibly useful mod by Misty. I use the 10x version in my own game, and it works like a charm. Hope that helps!
And to Jenba:
I made some mods. ^_^
The titles are fairly self explanatory, but the first two eliminate the social groups influence effects (those plus and minus sign popups) from the University Life expansion pack, the Supernatural expansion pack fairy wings, and/or the baby fairy sparkles (with various flavors that combine those three alterations and now a no mosaic blur version), and the third one is an OBJK override that FINALLY STOPS THOSE DAMN WITCHES FROM RIDING THEIR BROOMS ALL OVER TOWN! =D
And, if you want a babbling apology, please click below. =)
Wow, this is so pretty. It looks just like a postcard. <3
Thirteen false starts and over 150 inspiration images later, and these tattoos still suck. It’s probably a good thing that I don’t have any in real life, cause apparently I have terrible judgement in regards to what looks good and what doesn’t.
Well, I’m off to work on lucky number fourteen. Wish me luck. ;)
Creepiest glitch I’ve gotten in a while. It looks like she can see into the very depths of my soul.
…Or maybe like her eyeballs got turned inside out. Either way, I quit without saving. That’s enough sims for tonight, thank you kindly.
The worst thing about being a natural blonde is that your hair doesn’t stay blonde, and you have to continually highlight it to maintain the color it once was naturally.
It is not fun.
I was just looking through my high school pictures the other day and thinking the exact same thing. My face under the cut. Prepare yourself for the horror.
Free alcohol + tipsy handstands + a brewing rivalry = An absolutely epic face plant.
…At the very least, Céleste seems pretty sorry about it. Whether it’s just an act or not remains unclear, but she pulls off the “whoops, my bad” face fairly decently. Venus isn’t buying it, however. Not even for a second.
As the scorching summer sun beats down on Alexander and his group, the beer drinking starts in earnest, and before long the girls are lining up to do keg stands with each other. Realizing that this show will be broadcast on a national network, Anja plays it safe and skips the booze, and with Céleste otherwise occupied she seizes her chance to talk with Alex.
Alexander beams as Anja saunters up to him. “You look lovely today,” he flirts. “The sun really brings out the color in your eyes.”
“Why thank you, Alex-ander,” she replies cheerfully, her melodic voice practically singing the last syllables of his name. “You’re being unusually nice today.”
He chuckles at her tart compliment. “Oh, whoops. I guess I’ll have to work on that then,” he winks back.
Anja sighs irritably and rolls her eyes, but Alex can’t help but notice the smallest of smiles on her lips.
With her signature smile and an arsenal of interesting stories at the ready, Céleste easily dominates the conversation with Alexander. Mack and Venus politely listen to their discussion, but with little knowledge of the nation’s trade relations with France they both remain uncharacteristically silent.
Eager to make a good impression and stay in the competition, Lori comes over just as Mack wanders off to get a beer, but despite the forced grin on her face she finds the situation unbearably awkward and leaves quite quickly. If only Céleste and Alex would lay off the flirting once in a while she might have stuck around, but the way Alexander falls all over himself at Céleste’s every word just makes her feel sick.
“…And then I broke a nail!” Venus shrieks. “Worst day EVER.”
Despite her somewhat diva-esque attitude, Venus proves to be the only sim capable of stopping Céleste from hogging Alexander for the entire date. An impressive feat, to say the least.
I made this kid’s missing front teeth texture edit thing ages ago, but I thought it looked stupid so I never uploaded it. But last night I showed it to a couple of friends, and they liked it I guess, so I figured I would share it here once I got proper preview pictures. But now that I look at it again I’m back on the I-hate-it-why-did-I-waste-my-time-on-this-in-the-first-place train of thought, lol.
Do any of you guys want it though? It’s found under costume makeup for children, both genders, but it’s really nothing fancy. I’m just on the fence about it, and I don’t feel like uploading it if no one likes it or will use it. =)
For the second group date, Alexander takes his contestants to Cape Garner’s very own beer garden for a “day of boozing and bullshit”, as he so eloquently terms it.
“I live a social life,” he explains in response to their questioning glances. “And as a top executive at one of the nation’s lead investment firms, I often have to deal with high profile clients in large group situations. I need to find a woman who feels comfortable interacting with these people, someone who can stand out in the crowd and draw attention in a room full of beautiful and charismatic sims.”
…Not to mention someone who can hold their liquor. ;)
And so their date begins. With the alcohol flowing freely, the women drinking heavily, and the bachelor feeling particularly
narcissistic confident, the afternoon seems to be shaping up quite nicely for a bit of classic reality show drama.
Wow, thank you! =D Her shirt is the Community Garden Shirt from the Sims 3 store, her shorts are from the 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s stuff pack, and her shoes are from University Life. Oh, and the CC pattern on her top is the Flowery Leaves pattern from Simlicious’ themed pattern collection. Hope that helps! =)
