Hai Guys
After along hiatus,I have decided to get back into the game...the sims 3 that is >=) And there is someone else who wants to get back even more ...

Meet Athena


BIOGRAPHY of a Hungry Boxer
Successful at every endeavour she’s done on a field, track or court, Athena truly personifies the word “HUNGRY.” She’s been starving to get back into competitive sports, since her college days came to an end. After finishing her private teaching job educating citystate kids, she found herself at a crossroad. Her next move wasn’t entirely known, until she got discovered by Angelo Rodriguez, a retired police officer (now her fiancé) who helped her get into the fighting scene. “You’re the perfect build to be a boxer: tall, long arms, strong, great cardio fitness, you are a “diamond in the ruff”, the “1.1 million dollar baby”!”,Angelo told Athena. And from that point on her destiny was sealed.
Athena is getting into fighting at a good time. A time when female fighting is not only taking off, but is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves. She believes 2 to 4 years, female boxing will be in the Olympics, and that is her ultimate dream.

Athena’s foray into one of the most masculine of sports isn’t just to keep battling with the boys; it is to quench the hunger to compete again. Remember her name because it won’t be the last time you hear it! Athena is well on her way to being a superstar athlete.

Inspiration
I really do it is inevitable that women's boxing will become an Olympic sport.Mainly because now it is a bona fide amateur sport. This gives the sport depth. Females have the opportunity to develop as athletes before they turn pro. And the USA is to host the first women’s' amateur boxing world championships, which is an important step in getting it into the Olympic Games. It’s growing so quickly in terms of participation around the globe (a sport must show that it is practiced all over the world in order to be considered for inclusion in the Olympic Games) , and because it definitely draws an audience. And right or wrong, that is what the IOC is interested in sports which can draw a television audience.

Becoming an Olympic sport is key for the growth of women’s' boxing. The sport will gain credibility with sports fans, funding will become available around the globe for development of female amateur boxing (its harder to find funding for non-Olympic sports), and the gap between overall skill level of female boxers and male counterparts will start to close. And the timing is right for women in sports (WNBA, women's world cup soccer, etc)

Title In part with some of my studies in history, Greek mythology,and various humanities---the main inspiration was based off a time when people thought Olympians were next to Gods. In many ways today we still do. It is this Glory that motivates many athletes to go beyond human limitations and exceed expectations.

Features
Lips,Eyelashes,eyes,and chin:Ciara
Jawline:adam rodriguez from CSI Miami
Eyebrows: Salma Hayek
Overall: I realize now her look is very close to the actor Cammille Guaty (Daisy Salinas from Disney's Got Kick it Up)

I hope you guys enjoy her as much as I do Happy Simming!

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.

She's wonderful! So glad to see a female sim on here who's not described as a "part-time model" or such.

This is, without an exaggeration, the best custom Sim I've seen so far.



She's a looker, too

Somebody call the cops!

Making Sims this gorgeous has got to be a crime.

Awesome stuff! I am no good at custom sims, but have been waiting for a female sim who's not 'glamourous' and 'model-material'. Am definitely downloading this Greek-named beauty - job well done!

Beautifully unique, and a classic! Definatley going straight into my downloads file. I love her jaw-line, and Adam Rodriguez. (*drools*) It's actually fantastic to see a female sim uploaded who isn't falling into the gender steryotype of previously mentioned modelling and also being strong willled and not dependant on money/partners/family. Not so much MTS as the "exchange".
I was wondering, not a huge deal, but if you knew where her poses came from? No worries, anyway.
Thank you, for making such incomparable sims.

Yea, I was actually tossing that idea around. funny enough if you google "Athena Goddess" many artists interpretations look *very* close to this sim's image in regards to features and coloring.

I always put thought an meaning in to a sim's name, so i left that interpretation in the symbolism of the name. part of the origins of the name are derived from the Greek word meaning sharp – 'ather' and the word for praised – 'aine'. it also means "aggressive warrior". so all those sim to fit wih her and her bio.....So I went for a less obvious embodiment of the Goddess Athena but she's still there :D

This Sim is so unique...I love how she isn't the traditional Ford model type beauty found everywhere. I don't care for her back story, because I think boxing is brutal and not worthy of the Olympics, but hey, thats what makes the game fun! We can all use these Sims as our imagination sees fit! Thank you for sharing

@Deluxe Designs I know right? xD the original would have to change anyways because at the point I never tried her in game. And when i did test her the other day, there was just no way I could leave her like that O.o she was really ugly in game.I wish i could show you a picture! its really night and day.its past plastic surgery its a totally different person That's why I appreciate everyone's feedback until i get back into the rhythm of things

I really like this sim but it seems she doesnt show in the pre-made sims even when I have her in the SavedSims folder. My problem always has been that some sims show and some do not.

Any ideas?
