Seeing how awesome LFB's new asian skins were, I just had to make Lucy Liu. I'm pretty happy with her, and that I was able to fix her huge forehead. Huge thanks to everyone in the CFF, you're all awesome :D

Born to Chinese immigrants in Queens, New York, Lucy Liu has always tried to balance an interest in her cultural heritage with a desire to move beyond a strictly Asian-American experience. Once relegated to "ethnic" parts, the energetic actress is finally earning her stripes as an across-the-board leading lady.




Lucy Liu shot to stardom in 1998 as the stylish and malicious Ling Woo, a regular on TV'sAlly McBeal. Liu, also a model for Revlon, went on to a successful run in movie roles, including 2000's Shanghai Noon (with Jackie Chan), Charlie's Angels (2000, with Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz) and Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill (2003, starring Uma Thurman). Her feature films since then haven't found big audiences, but Liu works steadily in films and on television, where she has landed roles on TV in Ugly Betty (in 2007, starring America Ferrera), Cashmere Mafia (2008) and Dirty Sexy Money (2008, starringDonald Sutherland). Her films include Lucky Number Slevin (2006, opposite Josh Hartnett),Watching the Detectives (2007, with Cillian Murphy) and Kung Fu Panda (2008, starring Jack Black).

CC USED

**IMPORTANT** Sliders
I recommend you get all of these, but if you don't just don't change her facial features because they'll snap back into place.

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 sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

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.

LadyFrontbum's skins are the bomb, but your work has truly brought one of my favorite celebrities to life in Sims 3. Who knew this could be done without face masks?

Thank you, very much!

You don't need facemasks to create good clebrity sims, because they are showing more photoshopping skills than simming skills. I think you did a great job, the eyes are spot on.

There were several good Lucy Lui sims for Sims 2 but you've surpassed them, and givin that you did it in Sims 3 is a real accomplishment. Let's hope that this example encourages other Celebrity simmers to give up on the face masks(never thought they worked as well as they did in Sims 2) and try the subtler approach of slider hacks.

Now if you're taking requests, how about the rest of Charlie's Angels? :D

"Right there."

me: slightly annoyed, taps the screen
"Right there."

wife: "I mean, go to the pic of the sim."

me: "You're looking at the sim, this is the sim."

wife: "Nuh, uh"
practically presses nose against the screen, with glasses even
"that's the real....oh.....wow... "

me: "Yeah."


I think that says it all.
