Sometime ago I stumbled over a request to make a celebritysim: Lauri Ylönen
and I thought to myself: "How hard can that be?! The man has some rather unique features, e.g. his nose/eye-area. Answear?! Alot harder than expected!!! When I had made him in bodyshop he looked (in all modestness...) stunningly SIMmular. "Great job!" Then I brought him into the game for some screenshots and (NOOOOO!!!!) it looked all wrong.
So after many trials and errors (and several nervous breakdowns) I made something that looked just right and then, the whole thing breaks on me and I lost EVERYTHING!!!! Game; gone, Downloads; gone, Lauri; GONE... I would have cried if I wasn't so pi... (ahem) disappointed.

So now after many sleepless nights, unnoumerous cups of coffee and comforting cigarettes. I made it!!!! It's done!!!
So without further ado I present to you: (tam tada dammm) Lauri Ylönen!!!!
I tried to upload a version of him earlier, but looking back, I'm glad it was rejected. This gave me the inspiration to improve myself and hopefully you'll all agree. This time I really took the time to test him out in the game, several attempts had to be binned before I found the right one. I'm pretty sure that this is the best I can do!
(My mother said, this sim will be the end of you)

Now the credits:

credits to Angelyne, SleepycatDSL and Enayla. Artists much more gifted than myself who deserves all the credits and thank you's they can get. I have several of Enayla's skintones and I would recommend them for everyone. Here’s a link to the thread where credits are given, btw: they are DEFAULTS!

Yet another amazing artist, barcelonista, who made my sims scaringly lifelike with her default eyecollection. She(?) also has many other downloads for you to check out, you won’t be dissappointed.

Not quilte sure what sort of clothes Mr. Ylönen usually wears, but these look great and almost everyone of my sims are wearing her creations. KSK has kindly given me permisjon to upload him with these jeans, but you must get the mesh at the link. (small price to pay for übercool jeans)

Mesh by me, topless leanrocker look, since that's how the guys I like look. Just altered the maxis aftoptanktop-mesh and removed the texture.

Also made by me, I just used the maxis brow (the most natural looking ones) and cut it down so that they start a little further apart.

WARNING: The skintone and eyes that he is uploaded with are DEFAULTS!!!! Being a total uploading retard I'm not sure how this was behave in your game (badly formulated, I know, but hope you understand.)
If you have any problems regarding the download, let me know and I'll see what I can do. PM= faster respond.


Goatee made by Dragonfly fairy. Looks kinda like Ylönen's facialhair...

Long messy hair made by coris. I could not find any hairstyle that looked like
Mr. Ylönen's, so I took the closest one.

Remember that this is my first upload so any problems are either caused by ignoranse, lack of sleep, overdose of coffee or (most likely) all of the above.

Hope to hear some feedback, good and bad. Help me improve myself

Kiitos! (this means thank you in finnish, or so I'm told...)
