One of the first things I did when I got TS2 was to search MTS2 for Sim versions of the characters from Firefly, Joss Whedon's too-soon canceled "Space Western" series. Much to my chagrin, I didn't find any...so I took it upon myself to remedy that. Many failed attempts and a lot of downloads later, I offer to my fellow Browncoats the first in my crew- Zoe Washburne, stoic first mate and all around warrior woman as played by the stunning Gina Torres. Hope you like her! Her hair is perhaps a bit lighter than is strictly accurate, but it looks much nicer than the darker version on her.

Custom Content (all included):

Skin is 'Pixie Rust,' by the incredible Enayla. http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=181555

Eyes are from the 'normal eyes' pack from Shiny Sims
http://shinysims.x-y.net/

Hair is a recolour of a reflex sims mesh (http://www.reflexsims.de/) by Starangel13
http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=132744

Brow, Lips, and Lashes are all by Helaene (http://www.helaene.com/main.html) and are, respectively, 0109 brow, 901 lips, and brown june lash.

EDIT: I forgot to add that the skin is an amazing creation by billygruffs at the exchange! I'm so sorry. But that's where it's from. And it rocks.


Huge thanks to all the creators who allowed me to make Zoe her gorgeous self with their CC, used with permission either by site policy or direct request.

This is my first upload, so constructive criticism and helpful suggestions are especially appreciated.

Not bad at all, pixie! I am a TOTAL Firefly/Serenity addict as well, so I empathize. I think there is a Simon and River here somewhere, and I'm getting pictures together for my River sim (could she have a harder face to mimic?!). I really like your Zoe- now I'm all excited about making mine! Thanks & great first upload!

Always,

Good job. I am a Firefly/Serenity freak too. Loved the movie as well. I was going to do the whole crew but you beat me to it so I'll bow out gracefully and watch for yours. I've had Joss Whedon characters in my Sims2 game from day one. Thanks for Zoe, nice work.

*LOVE*

Are you making other Firefly sims? I would love to see a Wash and an Inara. Not to mention everyone else! Love this, thank you for making it!

I was looking for Kaylee, but found Zoe instead. Though, I do think you did a great job on her, I myself am terrible at making sims based off of people so if I can't find the person I don't have a sim for them. I barely made my sim of myself right, I had to have someone else take a look at it. LOL.
