This is Eurydice, named after a character's name I found on the back of my "The Storyteller- Greek Myths" video tape. I was tempted to name her Medusa, but that seemed a bit cliche, and Eurydice to me had a more fresh ring to it. =D



Anyway, Eurydice is a cruel, cruel snake woman. She believes herself to be a very powerful being, especially with her dangerously sharp fangs and seductive powers. xD She is rather vain and terribly greedy as well, and takes pride in letting others do her dirtywork, then reaping the rewards herself.



I think she came out pretty well, and is one of my more menacing sims. =)



You will need to download the following meshes for this Sim to appear properly in your game:

First, for her lovely venomous fangs, download Generalzoi's Vampire Fangs for All: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...gs+for+everyone

Next you'll need the lovely Hair by Plicka, found on this Sim: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=123741

And, Last but not least, you need Marvine's Mermaid Mesh from InSimenator.net. You'll need to join to download, but InSimenator has lots of fantastic items which make it worthwhile to download. The direct link is http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=3503.

This Sim is not packaged with the Snakeskin Mermaid recolor shown in the images, so you will have to go to InSimenator and
download the snakeskin recolor and when in CAS, after this Sim is installed, change her outfit manually.
Download the snakeskin heres: http://www.insimenator.net/showthre...ermaid+recolors



This Sim is packaged wearing an original Maxis dress, as seen in this screenshot; the black one similar to that which Dina Caliente wears. So, it's normal that she will appear in that outfit until you change it with your mouse; it will appear under the full body clothing section. I would package her in the mermaid outfit itself, but Marvine's rules ask not to. =)

'Til next Time, Enjoy! <3

Holy BLANKITY BLANK, that looks like that Elvira chick, the hairs a tib bit different, but I swear she looks like her. (Elvira's creepy, but man, is she H-O-T.)

Haha! I used to love Elvira. I'm assuming this means Eurydice is hot as well, so thanks! XD ^^

This Sim is actually so scary I can't possibly download her. I can't even look at her for too long--makes goosebumps and shivers! Someone did a Samara from the "Ring" movie that had that effect on me. That's how good that work was and how good your work is. I can't download her because I'll get nightmares, but I'm rating you 5 stars for scaring me back awake after a long day with a sick toddler!

I used to be such a horror movie freak but I saw "The Ring" and something about Samara freaked me out so badly I had to give up my horror movie habit. The funny thing is I wasn't scared at all when I watched the movie. I just kept having nightmare about that freaky chick. If your aim was to create a menacing freak-out inducing female, honey, you did it! Whew!

Haha, thank you very much for the most in-depth comment I have ever recieved! =D I'll take your fear as praise, and I very much appreciate the 5 star rating. Really, my goal was to make a somewhat scary sim, but her being compared to Samara is a compliment much more than I expected! Thanks a ton. ^^

Wow, thanks, Plicka! I really appreciate that you commented on my work. I'm simply honored that you think she is gourgeous!
And ah, alright, thanks! I thought it was Lois's, but I couldn't remember. Anyway, I use your recolor of it all the time, I simply love it! ^^

She is really wonderful. Sinister, creepy, but very pretty. You found me some vampire-like teeth as well, for which you have my eternal gratitude.
This is the first time I have reviewed anyone's work, normally I just download, figuring no one wants to know what a girl, who has nothing to contribute , has to say. But this is AMAZING, and I wanted to let you know. :baloons:

OMG!! It totally does. I couldn't put my finger on why it looked slightly familiar and then I scrolled down.

She is very beautiful and haunting. Great work. Thanks for sharing!

I thought that maybe you got her name from the Sims Original song "If You Really See Eurydice."

It's a really pretty song, and if you've played the original Sims then you'll remember it well. The music is on YouTube, in case you're unfamiliar with the title.

Anyway, cool skin!

I hate to be "that guy", but Eurydice was the lover of Orpheus, a beautifully gifted troubadour, who on her wedding day died via viper bite. He ventured into the underworld to get her on the condition he did not turn to look at her on the way out. At the cave entrance, he stepped out to quickly and she was still in the underworld. She was forced back down. He became mad and was killed by the Pleiades and was thrown into the river . The nymphs buried him under mount Olympus, where the birds seem to sing more sweetly than anywhere else.
