Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I love Lucy” is my favorite old TV show. Lucy was so crazy and funny and still beautiful and likeable despite all the stupid stunts she would pull. From what I read about the ‘real’ Lucy, she wasn’t really anything like her character on the show. Still, she did an amazing job of fooling us all! But that’s usually how it goes…… Once an actor has success as a character, it’s incredibly difficult to break away from that persona. When you have a loveable character like Lucy, people just don’t want to believe that she isn’t real. Just look at what happened to Spock…… Um, I mean Leonard Nimoy.



Her skintone is a mixture of HP’s amazing “Idolatry of Flesh”, and various pieces from the beautiful skintone included with these sims, by HIM666. She comes with everything from the pics except the hair. She is packaged with a base game hairstyle. In order to get the hair from the pics, follow these directions:
1.) Click here to go to sunairsims, and then click on the heading that says “Skin”
2.) Find page 29 (Hair Set 3)
3.) The right side of the page should be numbered 01,02,03, and 04.
4.) Click 01, and from there a window will pop out and you can download the hair.




I hope you like my little tribute to the character of “Lucy Ricardo”. Enjoy!

Oh WOW!!! She looks FANTASTIC! I'm not 100% about the hair mesh but I'm sure there's little out there that would work with her. The resemblance is PHENOMENAL, though! I normally don't download celebrity sims but I can't help myself! She's great! Any chance of doing Ricky?

I surfed a few of the sims 2 sites I frequent but couldn't find any mesh even close to her hair so I think you got the best match out there =). If I ever see anything that will fit her better I'll let you know!

Haha...your sim reminded me of the film Rat Race...where this guy ends up driving a bus load of "Lucilles" across the desert & the bus breaks down. I never saw the show as I prefered Bewitched but it is a very good likeness of her.
Thanks!

I really don't know this TV show (it was showing 1971/72 in germany - in that times I was really too young for watching tv), but this is a very wonderful sim! Thank you for this excellent work

Wow! I'm SO amazed by the number of people who have not seen the show!!!! I didn't think that was even possible!!!!! LOL Well, if you ever get the chance, it's def worth the time to watch! Lucy is amazingly funny, even YEARS and YEARS after it was originaly made.

Very few people remember that Lucille Ball started out her career as a femme fatale. In George MacDonald Fraser's Quartered Safe Out of Here (one of the greatest memoirs of WWII), there is a lively debate among Nine Section over the relative pulchritrude of Lucy and Susanna Foster. But her twenty-year role as Mrs Ricardo pretty firmly entrenched her image as zany, not sexy.
Beautiful Sim.

I was looking at your sim and thinking, 'I definitely recognize this person!!', but i'm not good putting the face to the name, then I saw the real life pics you posted of her and BAM! haha it is such a good representation, I think the hair looks great too!


It's ok, we all laugh-snort occasionally!

Thanks! I realy worked HARD trying to find a good haiur for her, and I do belive that that is the best.... if I could mesh, it probably would have been rather easy to make a custom hairstyle for her. It wouldent have to had even been animated because it's so short! LOL Anyways....

Thanks EVERYONE for leaving me comments!!!!!! I love reading them!!!!! Thank you!!!!!

That sim is amazing. You've made me want to make a self-Sim so I can hang out with Lucy. *headdesk*

Wonderful, wonderful job. Can't wait to get her in my game. 8D
