Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Here's something different I bet you got sick of my Star Trek sims (I hope not, though, cause I got more coming), so I've decided to share this dashing fella with you guys. I shall personally ship chocolate chip skull cookies to everyone who actually knows who Voltaire is (hint: not the Voltaire they teach you about at school). I will. Promise!

Anyway, for those of you who have no idea, check Voltaire on Wikipedia for a brief introduction. Basically, he is "a songwriter whose music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a Con audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his song "Brains!" from the Cartoon Network show "The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy"."

I've actually discovered Voltaire through this Star Trek video on YouTube, compiled to his song When You're Evil. I'm a fan ever since.




Hair is not included, it is by Kavar and can be downloaded here. The outfit with a turtleneck can be found here. The second lovely outfit is by Aikea-Guinea, get it here (TSR sets->Themed sets). Ear piercing mesh you will find there too, under TSR sets->Accessories. You probably have all these already, cause they're awesome

Mermaid Cove is closed, the link is working, there's nothing there tho :/ and Ren's website is currently down, so that's why the link in the credits is broken, no worries




I hope my fellow Voltaire fans will enjoy having this sim in their games, and even if you're not a fan, he still does make a rather good-looking sim

i noticed your new avatar around the creator help forum and couldn't read the text but immediatly was thinking,
"is that voltaire?! i wants!'
perhaps there were also some 'on nom nomming' in my head at the time too.
Great work on him!, cant wait to put him ingame - maybe my simself with fancy the pants off him like my real self.

Good Job.

Gorey - well I'm happy you find my sim as "omnomnom-able" as real Voltaire! (LOL)

ShadyLass
- Happy I've surprised you! 'Twas about time someone makes a sim out of him!

SimGuy & Vera - Thank you! I never noticed the similarity, but now that you two mentioned it, it's hard to un-see it

Nightmare - Thank you! If I ever get into TS3, I'll do Voltaire for it too.

pugLuvr - yeah, his music is definitely worth checking out!

I didn't know who he was but I just had to download him! He's fantastic! And I had to follow that link for the video. I died laughing. That was awesome! I'm going to have to go listen to more of his music.

Excellent choice in clothing too! I love Aikea-Guinea! I think I've downloaded everything she's created - or almost!

A Talented singer/songwriter who's subject mater is, as you say, on the morbid side. Better know songs asside from "Billy & Mandy" include Vampire Club (with a slight Contemporary Country/Western flavor) And "When you're Evil" With a more tango beat to it. And the particulary creepy line of "your tears are all the pay I'll ever need" Masterfuly edited in a Youtube with Disney Villains lipsynching to it.

Oh dear, you get hero status in my world for morphing this dashing and talented man into a sim. Voltaire is just amazing. On that note: you did an amazing job on this. I'm not one to download sims based on real people for my game, but this is a definite exception.
