This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Gimli, finally! A great character in the LOTR story. As usual, I went with my own interpretation, rather than trying to match the movie.

I understand there is a way to change simís height in Simpe, but I havenít tried it. I just accept the game limitations and Gimli is as tall as everyone else.

**You need the Holiday Pack for this sim (the beard).**

Custom content included:

Brows by exnem:

My Policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

LOL!
I think there's plenty of elf dudes around. A dwarf is a nice addition!

This a wonderful interpretation of this character! I am truly impressed! I suppose I will finally have to buy the holiday pack (if only you could separate out all the stuff you don't want).

Good job! It actually looks like him! Most of the other Sims look nothing like the person they're supposed to look like, but yours actually does!

I could probably make him short for you. It's pretty simple, and I've done it to my Dwarves.

I don't play sims 2 anymore, but if you want to resize him and post it here or anywhere that's not TSR or a paysite, I'm fine with it.
