Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Sam Merlotte
Sam Merlotte is a sweet bar owner with a bit of a wild side and a cute little doggie. If you watch True Blood.... SHHH! Please don't discuss the plot in this thread. We don't want to spoil it for folks who haven't seen it yet right? Right. Good. Extra special thanks to all the custom content creators mentioned below, and to the actors, writers, and entire crew that makes True Blood. Particularly Sam Trammell who portrays Mr. Merlotte so well.

Please do not redistribute these sims or altered versions of them. Thank you.

Aw, thanks guys.

Vampire_of_Death: I'd certainly like to make more of the characters but don't know if/when that will happen.

Squeee! *Cat huggles the doggie!* Forget the guy, give me the sweet doggie. Guy's great and all, but doggie! How did you cram so much goofy shagginess in?

Please spay or neuter your pets. --- Cat Music Video! --- my meshes

I think your True Blood characters are absolutely spectacular. Very accurate and totally recognizable, even the dog! I hope you don't lose interest before you are able to finish with the main characters at least. Jason, Tara, Eric and Lafayette? Please say you'll bring these all to life. You do it so well!

I really hoope your planning to make the rest of the cast... Sookie's brother is always getting himself into so much trouble.. he'd make a great Sim. And we have to have a Tara. Great work... you rule

PS Since you have a thing for creating great characters.. any chance your planning to do the Twilight Saga cast? I think you'd be brilliant.

Wow, thank you so much madamejeanie ....and everyone else. Those characters are all on my to-do list, madamejeanie, but I haven't started them yet so have no idea when/if they'll be finished.

And Jennixst29, no, there's about zero chance of me making the Twilight cast. I've never seen Twilight and doubt I'd like it as much as True Blood.

It's awesome, fanseelamb! Hey, you planning on making Gran?

So, you claim that your son was brainwashed by voodoo witch doctors and forced to recrute others?

Awww, Sam and Dean look way awesome!!! And in response to the Twilight thingy above, I don't think you'll like it, it's too...sparkly and mamby pamby sweet. I'd rate even the last book a possible PG-13. Stick with the rated-R Vampire series

Fansee, I have a confession to make :
I used to hate maxis sims (with maxis skins) but i must say that you are the first creator that changed my mind ...I don't know how you do it, but yours sims are so adorable !!!
I just love the talent you have to make them... alive , even with maxis skins!!!
I really love your sims,they are cute beyond words!!!
And the dog...cutiecutiecutie !!!

You know the way it twists and turns,changing colour,spining yarns
You know the way it leaves you dry, It cuts you up, it takes you high
You know the way it throws about,It takes you in and spits you out

This looks so much like Sam! Any chance that you'll do Eric? He's my favorite guy both in the books and on the show. It's a crime what they've done to his hair...
