Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Herro, i am back with a new sim. This is Rachel, a true beauty with lovely tanned skin (covered for all ages and genders). Her background is suspected to be Australian, but who knows, she was just a hobo with a funny accent that i picked up and glammed up.




I worked hard on the skin, i practiced and practiced till my finger prints melted off (especially since i use the touch pad on my laptop, ah, nothing like finger burn).
Everything is Maxis Re-Color, No Mesh's are required.
The short hair in the image is an EP hair (OFB), but she will be packaged with the basic Maxis re-color, that all my models are packed with.

Custom Content by Me:
- Rachel
- Green Eyes
- Dark Tan Skintone
- GlamHair001 (re-colour)
- Top (re-colour)
- Pants (re-colour)

I can't believe i have to do this but i am: I'm Australian, i wouldn't create a sim that is "suspected" to be Australian in order to degrade any culture.
In context of Sheila, i use it in terms of the original meaning of "Smart and Wise". Please, spare me the political corrections and spare me some change?
Sorry if this puts anyone off, lol

Are those fantastic eyebrows part of the skintone, or will I be able to use them on my other sims? They look so realistic! Thank you.

I have my graphics up on high, i definately know what you mean and in game all my sims look a little different then CAS (the part where you are choosing clothes and makeup) and the look especially different in bodyshop. Test her out in game and see how you like her.

The skin looks fabulous in either setting.

They are attached to the skintone, i think alot of eyebrows look more realistic on skintones then un-attached. I wanted her to look a certain way so i attached them.

i know they had downtime for maintenance not too long ago -- maybe it's because of that , and sometimes you'll have to retry a couple of times when alot of people are trying to download the item at the same time


try again later

She is a truly beautiful sim, but I just wanted to let you know that sheila is a derogatory term for women in Australia much like b***h (i edited this myself as I do not want to offend anyone) is used in the US. One would not use it in polite company nor to refer to any woman, if you're civilized.

That's ridiculous. People look for anything to take as an offensive mark just so they have something to complain about.

Your typing offends me.
She wasn't trying to be offensive and she wasn't making fun of anyones culture.
Anyways~~
I love your skin. Any more colors?

I'm not very good with changing colours of skin without losing detail of some kind.

I though, give permission for those who would like to modify the skin.

just to put in my 2 cents, gorgeous sim! and I'm an australian female and do not find your comments (sheila ect) offensive whatsoever, I don't find the term sheila offensive, merely amusing. I personally think there is nothing to find offensive in this post, you gotta relax mate!
