The first thing I ever tried to upload was a Taylor Swift sim, and I thought she was perfect. She got rejected. I then decided to never try to upload anything here ever again, and obviously didn’t happen. So after I was slightly less frustrated with my rejection, I worked on a few other projects for a while that where a tad more successful in being uploaded. Still, in the back of my mind I knew I still wanted to share my Taylor Swift sim, and finally last week that dream came true. It took over 7 days for her to get approved, and 5 seconds after that for me to realize I wish she never had. Her hair was wooly and frizzy looking, and her skin sucks majorly, and don’t even get me started on her face sculpt, make-up, and her crazy looking nose. It seems you can only see the flaws in your work when it’s just a little too late. So, I went to work again, and I’m extremely happy with the new results. I’m not saying she’s the end-all-be-all of Taylor sims, but I feel a lot better putting my name on her than I do the other one. I’m sure Vera, or Stefan, or another amazing creator will pop up with a Taylor that puts mine to complete shame….All I have to say to them is “Take your time!” Hehehehehe……..



Every time I see Taylor Swift, I literally think of an angel. There just seems to be something pure and genuine about her. Not to mention she is an amazing artist, writing and singing her own songs and breaking barriers in the music industry at the same time…. AND, she isn’t even 20 yet! I love her music, I love her style, and I just think she is a very talented musician, who, by the way, is the same age as me…. :-)




Ok, so the only mesh you need for Taylor to look as she dose in the pics is the hair mesh, which is from here. She comes with the blue dress from the pics, which uses a basegame mesh, so no downloading needed there. The skin tone on the body is HP’sIdolatry” skin. However, I gave it a quick boob job using Stefan’s skin he uses on his own celebs. So the skin is thanks to HP, and the boobs are thanks to Stefan…. Hehehehe…… Oh, and the face is by me, and I’m rather proud of my photoskining on this one, even if I did still use a ton of face masks. Enjoy!

The skin looks better but I am still not so fond of the hair. It looks like you just pasted hair onto the mesh. I am no good at making hair textures but I don't think it's a good idea to just paste a hair texture onto a mesh without editing it to actually fit the mesh at least. I think you should try to give it some shine and make it conform more to the mesh then it would be perfect.

Well, i def did not just paste it on the mesh, belive me..... I like it, and the biggest problem i had with the old hair was the frizzy thing, like you said.... so after that was taken care of, i dont realy care.... LOL I did work a long time on this hair though. If you look at the original, and look at mind, more than just the texture has changed. The alpha changed a lot too. And, like i said, i know it's not perfect, but i did work hard on it..... And I think it looks a LOT batter than the previous... and also, im a sim maker, not a hair person... lol... so, it works for me at least.

I don't take requests. :-)

I love this new version!
The skin is really pretty and you had made a huge improvement in the hair .
When I make sims I must confess that don't lose my sleep because the hair either...most people will change it anyway ...
when we could use any hair we wanted, pay or not, I used to be more picky about it...but now I see so many hairs that I want to use and I can't that...well, I think what really matters is the sim itself (which is great!); the hair is a "bonus" that you so generously gave to us!
Thank you dear for all the hard work you always put in all your creations!

You know the way it twists and turns,changing colour,spining yarns

I agree that the hair is an improvement from the last and it's obvious you worked hard on it. I'm just saying that the hair still doesn't look right and needs more work.

I think the hair is fine. I love it, and I personaly think it looks great. So, I'm leaving it as it is. Thanks for your feedback anyways.

To be true: I liked the first uploaded version too! But if you say this one is better, I will believe it! So many thanks again

LOL I do think this one is better structure wise.... but, i've caught the bug again, so there will most likely be yet another (and most likely a new-er version of the hair, because after all, people are still bitching about it... lol). And, I've been talking to KoTa1981, and he/she is currently working on a newer version that has an improved skin. So, there will be other versions to choose from, to be sure.

I don't take requests. :-)

I think she is perfect. The nose could be a bit smaller, but eh, that's just a little imperfection. I think you did on awesome job creating Taylor, Wicked. I'd like to see more from you!

I am NOT taking requests, sorry! But if you have any suggestions, I will take them!

This look AMAZING from your photos.. but when i tried using it,it said it doesn't exists!

Uhhh... Nice effort.
But the nose is far too big, try examining her facial structure and features more thoroughly, to create a much more realistic sim.
But yeah, nice try. Great for a first attempt at the sim! :3
