good genes: the snootles sisters.  

I haven't really had a lot of time to actually PLAY sims for a while. I've spent most of my time working or hanging out with my husband and our friends... and spend most of my computer time creating stuff for my game and then taking pictures of said creations in-game. So when I saw this contest running at GoS, I was somewhat interested. After seeing some of the awesome results, I decided I needed to try for myself.

I plopped Sy down in Veronaville, and immediately set to work breeding her with various suitors. Finally, four generations down, I ended up with a beautiful sim named Zentoo. And then my computer crashed.

Since I hadn't played sims in forever, I had completely forgotten the need to save constantly. Damn.

So I rebooted the game, went back to Sy's Veronaville home, and tried again - this time making sure that I saved the game after each new set of babies. Yay, me!

The first time I played, I had a little more variety. Like... men. But this is what I got the second time around, and I was pretty happy with how the two girls turned out. I am currently playing Sy in Strangetown, trying out some alien genetics. It's fun, but I haven't had quite the success I had in Veronaville.

To start off with, here's the family tree for Seena and Story, Sy's great-granddaughters.

First up is Story, my entry into the contest. It was really hard for me to choose between the two of them, but my husband liked Story better. And she had Bottom's elf ears, and I couldn't resist that.

And Seena, who was the first born of her generation. She may be lacking in elf ears, but I still think she's gorgeous. There is something about her that really reminds me of Sandra Bullock, who I have always kind of thought was beautiful in a very understated way. Anyways. Seena was my favorite.

They look very lovely. I'm going to have to try this contest out.

It was too much fun! I have plopped Sy in Strangetown now and surprisingly, have breeded a new set of girls very similar to these two. It's crazy!

I kind of want to try this, too. XD

Both the girls are gorgeous! Story, especially, has this mystifying kind of beauty and it's neat because I like her face but am unsure how to completely respond to it.

Oh oh, their faces have really interesting angles! Very awesome.
jesstheexjesstheex on July 11th, 2010 03:28 am (UTC)
I know, right? I think they are sort of awesome, too.

I just took a look at that challenge....I may have to try this!

I'm going to nab them later on once I clean out cas.

It's a great challenge! I've been having so much fun playing around with it.

And thanks! I am really pleased with how well they turned out.

Seena DOES look like Sandra Bullock. I love them both though, and already expressed my love for seeing pictures of your game, so this post makes me super happy. <3

I'm sorry you're sad, as well!

I'm having a bit of an extreme bout of homesickness. Ugh. I am feeling better, though...

And I'm glad someone agrees with me about the Sandra Bullock thing. I was thinking I might be insane. :P

I am so glad you uploaded them, they both look gorgeous! :D
Thank you!
jesstheexjesstheex on July 11th, 2010 03:30 am (UTC)
I really like their faces... although I am a bit partial to Seena. I couldn't resist sharing them. :D

Wow they look absolutely stunning! I rarely visit GoS these days so I wouldn't have noticed this fun contest if you hadn't posted this. I think I have to try it, for fun at least if not else. I checkd out the other entries so far and many of them were pretty amazing. It seems weird how fast those extreme features disappear. Makes one think what is the use in making unique sims... ;-)
jesstheexjesstheex on July 11th, 2010 03:31 am (UTC)
Ha ha ha! That's a good point. :/

And I can't wait to see your results!

They are so beautiful. You can tell they came from Veronaville, they really have that elfish look. My simming computer is away for 2 weeks (fan died and it apparently takes 2 weeks to fix it, grr), but I am definitely plopping these two into Veronaville when I get it back.
jesstheexjesstheex on July 11th, 2010 03:33 am (UTC)
Ack! I would be so sad without my computer. :(

And I think that's awesome that you can recognize their Veronaville ancestry. :D

The girls are so pretty! They have such a unique look with those strong jawlines. (Did that pass down from Sy? or maybe it was Jill? *ponders*)
jesstheexjesstheex on July 21st, 2010 02:46 am (UTC)
I think it might have been Bottom's jaw, actually. Or thought... but when I saw Kayleigh's post on GoS and saw that her girl looked surprisingly like mine! So maybe it was Sy's jaw, after all.

I'm glad you like them. I thought they turned out pretty great. :D

Wow, these two are beautiful! I love their square jaws and I'm a real sucker for freckles.

I don't want to be annoying, but I've looked high and low, googled, tried Gos and so on and so forth, but I can't find the set from where you got Seena's hair. Would you happen to remember where you got it or have the link?
jesstheexjesstheex on September 7th, 2010 01:06 am (UTC)
Ack, I totally don't! I will have to go back and check... or, if you download her, it should tell you when you open the file with clean installer.

Also, thanks. :D
