Lafayette Reynolds
Equal parts flamboyant and tough, Lafayette is everyone's favourite short order cook/road crew worker/entrepreneur. 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 Nelsan Ellis who portrays Lafayette so well.


Please do not redistribute this sim or altered versions of him. Thank you.


Recommended but Not Included
  • Maxis skin. This sim uses default Maxis skin. If you have default-replacement skins installed, please download the dark non-default Maxis skin here and put it on him in CAS.

  • Jewelry. It's from the Bon Voyage Expansion Pack. Lafayette is packaged wearing his necklace and earrings, but you'll need Bon Voyage for it to show up. You'll also need to select jewelry for each outfit in CAS Step #4 or else the jewelry will disappear when you save. Turns out sims packed with jewelry are a little glitchy that way.


Included Content
  • Lafayette Reynolds Sim

  • Brows by Helaene

  • Eye bags by Onah

  • Eyes by Petals (site no longer online)

  • Hair and hair mesh by me. More information & colours available here.

  • Outfit by me. More information & colours available here. This outfit requires the Nightlife Expansion Pack. Pick another outfit in CAS if you don't have Nightlife.

  • All included content has been compressed with jfade's Compressorizer to reduce filesize.


Free Tips
  • Install with Clean Installer to avoid "missing EP" error messages.
  • Lafayette requires no Expansion Packs, but you'll need the Nightlife EP for his clothes and the Bon Voyage EP for his jewelry.


(SHHH!)

I'm doing a happy dance here seriously. Thrilled that you have shared Lafayette & Jason. I love your version of the True Blood characters. Now Lafayette can do some of his own special dancing for a certain Vampire, lol! Oh, my only concern - is there enough flamboyant clothing around to suit his character?

Aww, thanks guys! Glad you like him. I've certainly been having fun with him and the rest of the gang.

sunni: LOL, I think you'll be able to find some suitably flamboyant clothing for him. I made a few recolours of the tanktop/shorts outfit he's packed in, but I also like dressing him in baggy shorts or jeans by Randir paired with somewhat flamboyant tops like these by shimmeringcat or the gold fishnet top by Knightskykyte in this super old thread. That one has been in my game for... 5 years, apparently.... and this is the first opportunity I've had to use it.

Hey, if anyone else finds some suitable clothes for Laffayette to wear, please share the links!

Don't know how I missed these earlier but thanks so much for making him and Jason as well!!! If you are interested in having them, there is a version of Tara available @ Insim and two different versions of Jessica @ Insimadult.

Again thanks so much for making the cast of such a great show!!! I hope to see more!

mellee2hot141: I'd love to make more True Blood characters, but it takes a lot of time. Even if I do get around to it, they're not likely to be done anytime soon.

Ah this brought tears to my eyes since Nelsan Ellis passed away last year! He seemed like a nice guy too! Loved his character on True Blood!
