Wake me up
Bid my blood to run
I can't wake up
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I've become
I've been living a lie
there’s nothing inside
Bring me to life



I bring to you today my take on the well known story of “Frankenstein”. I did not try and make them resemble their film counterparts completely. Her outfit and hair and the neck-bolts and are borrowed from the Universal movie version of them, but I did as I pleased for the most part, and only kept those things because I liked them.



I recently went through a break-up with my first real boyfriend of my so called “adult” life. I’ll spare you the details, but basically I’m in one of those contemplative moods at the moment. So, when making these sims, I was trying to think of a song that was a nice match for my theme of “Frankenstein”, but also had some meaning to it as well. I finally decided on “Bring me to Life”, by Evanescence. I like how the title of the song make a connection to “Frankenstein” obvious, but it also has subtle tie-in’s to the story throughout the song that work well when taken literally, and also have meaning when you think about them metaphorically… Wow… I think I just confused myself. LOL

I was also going to give a whole elaborate and cleverly written back story for these two, but I lost interest in that idea. However, I still wanted to share with you the general theme of this little “project”. The story I originally planned to write was going to focus on the idea that they had been hurt (emotionally) when they were alive the first time, and they died before they had the chance to fall in love again. After they died, and where brought back to life as human jigsaws, they fell in love with each other, and kind of started a life together in their ‘new’ bodies. The fact that they are made up of different parts of people stitched together is sort of a metaphor for ‘putting yourself back together’ after a failed relationship. Yeah, I know, it’s stupid and mushy and touchy-feely. Bite me. (Hehe..)


Oh, and on a final artistic note.... they are not monsters. I did not name them, but please don’t call them “monsters” , because they are not evil. I tried to make them beautiful and sweet looking, and I specifically tried to remove any evil, mean or aloof elements from their face. They prefer “creature”, or “creation”, because it sounds so much nicer, don’t you think? I suppose that if I had to give them names, the girl would be called “Eloise” and the boy would be “Denny”. Of course, it entirely up to you what they are called in your game.


Some Assembly Required
(pun intended)
((Mwahahahahahaha!))


So to my own surprise it appears that there is only one thing I cannot include with my sims, and therefore only one thing you have to download separately. The only thing you have to download for either of them to appear as seen in the pictures are the neck bolts by “necrodog”.

Her hair texture is by “SUMSE”, however the mesh is by the legendary “Nouk”. Both are included with the sim. Her outfit uses a mesh by “justsims2”, and is also included in the simpack. The eyes are both by “Bruno”. The blue eye is actually her genetic eye color, while the brown is actually an accessory by “generalzoi”. I simply recolored it to use a “Bruno” eye texture. The accessory eye mesh and recolor are included.


He is packaged with hair by the fabulous “HystericalParoxysm”. His outfit is a exceedingly easy recolor of a H&M mesh. If you don’t have H&M installed, just use the Clean Installer to install him, and slap him in something you like in BS. Different types might have him wear a day coat, pants with stripes or a cutaway coat….. LOL I couldn’t resist a “Young Frankenstein” reference. Get it? “Puttin’ on the Ritz”? Oh never mind……


Last and most defiantly not least I would like to thank my dear friend “AlfredAskew. She was so gracious to let me use her amazing button skin as a base for my creations. Not only did she allow me to use her hard work, but she was also kind enough to provide me with textures and numerous other resources. The skin used on both of these sims are a combination of her beautiful “ragdoll” skintone, the gorgeous “nobility” recolor of “HP’s” “Idolatry of the Flesh”, and my own stitching and tweaking here and there. My edits to the skin only appear on adult males and females. The rest of the ages take the form of the original “ragdoll” skintone. So, again, a HUGE thanks to “AlfredAskew”, and also to “HP”, whose “Idolatry” skintone I frequently butcher.


*Sigh*

One more thing and I promise I’ll shut up. These sims where originally supposed to be zombies. However I recently discovered that there is (as to my current knowledge) no modification that makes a sim look normal as a zombie. So, just use your imagination, ok?
Enjoy, and please don’t steal, and tell me if you take pics or use in movies or whatever…..
