Nora Gainsborough
Chancellor of the One True Vampire Authority. If you watch True Blood....SHHH!! Please don't discuss the plot in this thread. We don't wanna 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 Lucy Griffiths who portrays Nora so well.


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


Recommended but Not Included
  • Fangs! Nora is packaged as a human. She'll grow fangs when you turn her into a vampire in your game. You must have the Nightlife Expansion Pack installed in order to make her a vampire.

  • Default-Replacement vampire skin overlay. By default, Sims2 vampires have a blueish tinge which is wrong for True Blood vamps. I highly recommend TSN's Normal looking NL Vampire Skin Overlay (vampireNoBlueNoRedEye version) if you have Nightlife and plan to make Nora a vampire.

  • Maxis Skin. This sim uses default Maxis skin. If you have default-replacement skins installed, please download the light non-default Maxis skin here and put it on her in CAS.


Included Content
  • Nora Sim

  • Eyes by Oepu

  • Brows by Rensim, slightly darkened by me.

  • Lipstick and eyeshadow by Helaene

  • Eyeliner by dragonmandy

  • Blush by Hairfish of Mermaid Cove, which is sadly now closed.

  • Nose shading by Rensim

  • Beauty mark by me

  • Hair texture by Oepu, edited by me.

  • Hair mesh by Nouk

  • Outfit by me. It requires the Nightlife expansion pack. Just change her clothes if you don't have Nightlife, but I hope you do have it since you need Nightlife for her to be a vampire!



Free Tips
  • Install with Clean Installer to avoid "missing EP" error messages.
  • Nora requires no Expansion Packs, but you'll need the Nightlife EP to make her a vampire.


(SHHH!)

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

I love Lucy Griffiths. Is she in the new season? (Must be, seeing as I haven't seen her before :P)

Yeah she's new in Season 5. I'd never heard of Lucy Griffiths before, but she's great as Nora! I actually simmed her right after seeing the first episode of the season - she made quite an impression in that one.
Bowties are cool.

Eee, she is amazing! So cute and gorgeous, just like all of your sims.

She's an english actress and she was in one of my favourite shows; the BBC's version of Robin Hood. So I've known about her for years. Seeing this download made me go and rewatch that first episode actually, haha.

Aww, thanks for the sweet comments, guys! They're very encouraging.

QBUILDERZ: I definitely like her so far. Who knows where they'll take the character, but she'll probably remain episode-501 Nora in my game.

I was hoping you'd share her when I saw your Nouk hair preview, thank you fanseelamb!

(I hope you'll change your mind on Alcide Herveaux )

Cynnix: Ooh, well you're lucky some other folks asked for her then - I basically only share sims when people ask for them, so if you like what you see you gotta speak up! As for Alcide.... I'm still not too fond of him, but I did change my mind about Eric in a major way so you never know.

Here's another Robin Hood viewer, so I've known Lucy Griffiths for a while now. I was pleasantly surprised when she showed up in True Blood, and now I'm really glad she shows up here. Thank you, fansee!

(And as for Alcide... How can you not love the gruff, usually half-naked man? He doesn't really have to do or say anything. Just walking around a bit, half-naked, that's enough. *lol*)

I don't understand how you can love Alcide. He's got no personality! Aside from being mad and growly all the time, that is.

He's tall, muscly and he has his shirt off a lot. That's all I need.

I like Alcide because I pity him. His wife is batcrap and his love is a stupid girl who likes to gallivant with soops (sups? Supernaturals.) He just seemed like he needed someone on his side, so...I volunteered. :P
Not actually evil.

Your minimal CC sims are always a treat to see. You got the bump on her nose.

I don't watch True Blood, but I love this Sim! Do you have a recommended Zodiac sign or set of personality points for her?

She is one of my favorite sims! I soon as I put her in my game I fell in love. Now, whenever I load Sims 2 onto a new computer I make sure to install her. Thank you for sharing!

I love her! But I guess I will have to wait to use her till I get my PC games in for Sims 2. It just isn't working with the Mac version. Oh well!
