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.

Great sim Twi. Every time I look at her she looks more like the real thing.

The eyes are perfect.

Her facial structure seems like it would be VERY time consuming to get just right, especially without sliders. I might just make her into Elphaba :P

alishiagambino - Go for it! Making her as Elphaba was my original project, but I switched to make her more versatile.

Check out my other downloads at my blog!

To me, this looks more like Girls actress Allison Williams. Either way, she is a lovely sim!

YAY! you got her just right, nice job Twi! \o/

I just came to back to download her and I realize she uses pay content. I know it not required but I really like that hair on herFortunately I found a free similar hair by Cazy,Revival Unreleased 2011 Hair,if anyone is interested. Are we allowed to use /suggest pay content as long as it's not required?

Freedom, the sim does not require pay content; I know that that hair is mentioned in the upload as not being required and is there only for a different look.

Twi originally took the pictures with a "free" variant of that mesh, not knowing that it had been made free without the original creator's permission and the moderator (after discussion) agreed to allow the pictures (as are alternates) but requested that Twi link to the original.
