Update 9/24/10 - This is a small update that's really not necessary for you to redownload the sim if you already have her. First, she has her proper name Barbie Roberts not Barbie Rogers. Secondly, she's been repackaged with Lemonleaf's contacts version of her eyes instead of the replacement. That way she'll maintain her iconic glance if you have a different set of replacement eyes. Lastly, she's been repackaged with the new version of the Golden Girl dress that I fixed over at Leefish.

Like I said, if you've already downloaded her, you don't really have to update her. Nothing about her appearance has changed.

------

Little known fact about daluved1:

She freaking loves Barbies!

It's true! Growing up as an only child, I spent many days sitting Indian-style in front of a doll house. Instead of getting me that little brother or sister that I always wanted for Christmas, my parents showered me with Barbie dolls and dream houses. So overtime I've acquired this...slightly insane...obsession with Barbie dolls.

I've been wanting to make a Barbie sim for while, so I decided to do one from my favorite era; the late 50s, early 60s model.



This doll has a distinct side-glance look, which is what really makes them so rare. I tried to make the sim resemble the doll as much as possible, while at the same time keeping the sim looking...well....like a sim.



About Barbie
-Young Adult/Female
-Ambitious (duh--she can do anything!)
-Good
-Friendly
-Neat
-Family Oriented

Favorites
-Pink
-Pancakes
-Pop

I didn't stop just with the sim! I wanted to make Ms. Roberts extra special by giving her a custom wardrobe as well. All of these are are not included in the .rar file. They must be downloaded separately at LeeFish.



Her everyday outfit is made from a custom mesh (by me).



I also made Barbie's iconic striped pin-up suit.



And lastly, a simple formal outfit.

Hacks Used:
-Some sort of slider hack. I use the slider hack that's part of AD85's "coremod" set found here.
-Jonha's Sliders
-Delphy's Breast Sliders
-Facial Sliders by Ahmad (bella3lek4)
-Chin-to-Neck Slider by Heriet

**Barbie's face and body were altered extensively with custom sliders, without these sliders installed, the sim will *snap* out of shape whenever you try to alter her.

Custom Content By Me (Not Included):
Golden Girl Dress
Suburban Shopper Dress
Classic Pin-Up Suit

Genetics
Skintone (Non-default) by Heiret's Blog

-Short bob with bangs by Tantra

Makeup
-Bright & Smokey eyeshadow by emmzx

Athletic

Swimwear

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The only child, huh? You lucky one - I've been one out of ten (when I was a child) and got self-made pullovers or cookies for christmas and/or birthday... noooo Barbie.

Anyway, enough of me... I love Barbie Rogers. She's so beautiful. I also love her dresses. Great work!

I had the black haired Barbie in the striped swimsuit when I was a kid. She was originally my mom's. I thought she looked mean, though, so I always had her be the evil step mother of my dolls.

Oh, and Barbie's last name is actually Roberts, not Rogers. Her full name is Barbie Millicent Roberts.

:O Somebody else loves barbie dolls as much (or even more) than I do??? I knew I wasn't the only only child that was showered with barbies for Christmas... I would still play with them, but being so much more mature (Yeah right! ), I prefer to play Sims. But now I can have the best of both worlds! You did a fantastic job on her, I love her!

The face looks amazing, really good job! Great Resemblance.
My Mom got this Barbie as a child, she also showed me her barbies when I was a kid. But back then, I didn't like the old barbies because they looked so different from mine. But looking at the pictures now, I really like that 1959 barbie- especially in her blue gown!

I LOVED BARBIES!
I hated every other type of doll (especially baby-like dolls) but Barbies? ME WANTSES, PRECIOUS. Not an only child, but my sister is older by ten years, so I inherited hers (and acquired more) :D

Your Barbie is so realistic!
My mother used to have one of the very first Barbies. I think hers had black hair, but I don't remember what she said because she gave it away to a girl when she thought she was too old for Barbie. Now, back when my father's salary was actually somewhat upper-middle class (What's a raise?), I used to get Barbies every Christmas, Birthday, etc. Then, when I got a bit older, I would get tons of clothes and cars and miscellaneous vehicles like a rock star bus and two houses. I also had those grandparent dolls. When I was almost 14, I decided to start getting rid of my Barbies and only had my most favorite left and of course that dwindled over time to none. Now I kind of wish I could see my mom's first Barbie (After the last girl it was passed down to decided it was too old to pass on to someone else.) I love that striped swimsuit.

I love your Barbie, she looks so great. This sim even got me to buy that 1959 reproduced collectors Barbie today. I saw it in a toy store and just had to buy it, and now I just have to download this sim.

Thank you so much for this <3

I've always loved classic Barbie, more than the new ones even though they are cute too. This sim is really awesome! I downloaded her and Ken and they're going to live by the beach!

Yes...there's no reason why she shouldn't.
