For all sci-fi and Dune lovers (and those who just thought James McAvoy was hot in Children of Dune) here he is: the preborn son of Paul Muad'dib and Chani, Leto II. Twin brother of Ghanima. Leto is perhaps one of the most complex characters in modern literature and he particularly shines in the fourth Dune novel, God-Emperor of Dune by Frank Herbert.

So, if you liked the movies and haven't read the books, do so! Believe me, it's worth it.

And now you can enjoy Leto in your game as well I am slightly nervous about this upload as I am always finding it so difficult to build decent lookalike sims, but hopefully you'll like my attempt.

Now, for the credits and meshes:

Hair - maxis
Eyeshadow: thesimssi2
Eyeliner & eyebrows: helaene
Lips: sim cribbling
Skintone: snailhorse
Eye colour: me
Clothes: lykurgus will need mesh!

Additional notes:

The skin looks paler than in the movie shots! --- yes, that is because the movie is generally dark and the illumination has a predominant orange hue to it. James's skin is quite close to that of the skintone I used.

The eyes are completely blue! --- those who know Dune know the reason why. In short, because of the saturation of the blood by the spice melange (an ingested substance) the pupil and whites of the eyes become indigo blue. It was too important of a detail for a die hard Dune fan like me to ignore. :p

My policy:

~ Please don't upload these anywhere else without my permission. If you want to include my work on sims etc off this site , ask first! I like to know where my stuff is going and who is using it.
~ I will never allow my work posted on pay sites. Since I make it freely and offer it to ALL simmers it should stay that way.
~Uploading on Sims on MTS is fine as long as credit is given

Thanks for your understanding.

Let me know what you think and if you like my work, please leave a comment or hit that thank you button. Feedback is always appreciated.

Enjoy and happy simming!

yea I could submit them. I actually wanted to but felt like a single pair of eyes didn't make much of a download.

Default Alia
For those of us obsessed enough to make all the characters for ourselves, its more than enough!

I've especially wanted to make Alia for a long time, but not based on the movies. Alia in the original movie was just a child and in the "new" movies ... well, I just didn't like the actress they chose.

James McAvoy is gorgeous and Dune is a masterpiece. You've done a great job on Leto, thanks.

I love the Dune characters, especially Leto, and it's great to see them done on here, and so well. Just a bummer I can't use them though. I just have the Sims 2 game, no eps, thought it would work 'cause of the listing here but tried d/ling it and no go (got a "requires expansion pack data that is not installed." window instead). Oh well he looks great in a picture You did a beautiful job on them Ghanima.

Thanks noodleelf, I am not exactly sure what the EP specific part is, it could be his hair being Uni, I will have to check... :sorry:
In the meantime I'll change the clasification.
But if you're keen on him, I'll add a base game compliant version. :nod:

That would be wonderful Ghanima, to add a base game compliant version! If it isn't too much trouble. I was heartbroken not to get him DLed into the game. I just loved the relationship between Leto and Ghani, in the TV series and the books. Glad to see a talented Dune fan on here! Arrakis rules
