Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Name's Ivo Jenner. Won't mean much to you now. I ain't long fer this world. Wasted to 'alf the man I was. Consumption. Terrible way to go.

I'll make no bones--I ain't lived a good life. Started this gaming club in London more 'an a score o' years ago, an' I done things no man should ever do. But I've known sweetness what would make the devil cry, and enough sorrow to make e'en God weep. A man ain't lived if he ain't got regrets to show fer it.

I only have the one...

Leaving behind me girl, Evie.


She's a soft touch, that one. An angel like her ma, God rest her soul. Shy as a church mouse, and quiet as one, too. Probably on account o' that stammer. Little tangle tongue, she is.

But beautiful, too, despite havin' the fool's luck of gettin' my nose. Marked with angel kisses. Eyes like her ma's--big and round like a wax doll's, and just as devastatin' to a man. 'Course, she always keeps 'em downcast, hopin' to blend into the wall.



I know I ain't in God's good graces, but if he'd grant me just one wish, it would be for her to find happiness when I'm gone. Maybe find someone who could love her, devil hair and all.

If there's anyone who deserves it, it's her.

Hi, guys!

Evie is a character in Lisa Kleypas's book "The Devil in Winter". It's an historical romance set in Victorian times--the third in her "Wallflower" series. Although I don't usually play Victorian Sims, there was something about her that I thought would be fun to create. She's the first Sim I've ever made custom content for before, so I hope you like her!

Find the recolors of her gown here!

NOTE: I did her skintone by hand in Photoshop, and it works for both genders and all ages, though I have not tested it in game with children, toddlers, or babies.

NOTE: Evie's hair is a recolor I've done of MyoS's awesome female hair no. 14. Because SAU is down at the moment, I am including the mesh package in downloads. If the site comes back up, or the creator requests I remove it, I'll take it down then.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD THE MESH IF YOU WANT THE HAIR TO SHOW UP IN YOUR GAME!!!!


NOTE: The dress is a recolor I've done of Sussi's alpha editable ball gown, found here. You'll need the mesh for it to show up in your game. Thanks, Sussi!

Thanks to everyone on the creators' forums--especially Publicsim99 and Morphead--for helping me perfect Evie! Your help on this (and every other project) has been invaluable.

Thanks to Lisa Kleypas for writing the book that inspired me to bring one of her characters to life...sort of.

Huge thanks to Adele for the awesome Victorian furniture, Macarossi for the beautiful plants and Victorian build objects, and Loverat for the sweet recolor of the Sims In Paris painting. Love it all!

And to my husband, who puts up with me when I'm in a creative funk. Love you, sweetie!

Thanks for the lovely sims, and what sounds like a great book reccomendation! If the top bit was quoted from the book, I can say the author has a great "voice".

My sims gaming journal. Not very informative.

Chaotess, you're welcome! But, no, that's not a quote from the book. It's just something I made up for the post. Glad you like it, though. I like to write in my free time, so it's always good to hear that the voice comes through. My crit group is going to have to deal with my bloated head for weeks now, thanks to you! ;o)

Oh, and if you are planning on reading the book, I'd suggest starting with the first book in the series and reading them in order. It will give you a better feel for Evie's character. Here's the order:

-"Secrets of a Summer Night"
-"It Happened One Autumn"
-"The Devil in Winter"
-"Scandal in Spring"

Happy reading!

Well, I hadn't really thought about it. It's hard to get a Sim uploaded in the other category because you have to make your own custom content for them, and since my son is in school now, and I'll be starting back to school myself on Monday, I don't have a lot of extra time to make CC. But if I get a chance, I'll see what I can do. It would be fun to have a house full of wallflowers, huh? ;o)
