This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Just a silly little recolour of the original Maxis "Stick 'em up" bulletin board ...

Among the screenshots of my Harry Potter sims I found one picture that had little Ginny Weasley in a pose eerily similar to those famous old US army recruiting posters, so I decided to adjust it for the HP world, since it would make quite a nice addition to the notice board in the Gryffindor common room.

Just don't let Umbridge see it ;-)

Requires University.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

That's perfect for my Harry Potter world! Especially since my university's secret society is the DA.

Aww, how cute is that? I can't wait for OotP, the DA means Ginny, Neville and Luna get lots of screen time, yay! This poster is going right up in the Gryffindor common room in my Hogwarts.

What a cute idea! And it does look just like the old Army posters. I look forward to the movies but you know they cut so much out of GoF that I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't show much of them in the movie. I personally am a Draco/Hermione shipper lol.

Lovely work, in the pictures that 'tis.
In my game the whole thing is backwards...
Eh, is that supposed to happen?

Hm, that's weird ... it's displaying correctly in my game. This is my first recoloured object, so I'm not sure what might have gone wrong, but I've made another version (flipped, so that it's now showing up backwards in my game, and attached it to this post - could you try if that one shows up correctly for you?

Now see, I would have to have JUST declared that I wouldn't download any more things, since it takes up too much memory on my mac and then you make this. And I even have University!

*pouts* Oh well, it looks awesome anyhow

Who says Mac users can't be cool?

I think it's great, but one thing: On the poster, Ginny is a child, but in OOTP, she is 14 years old. So she should really be a teen. But anyways, I think its cool. THX
