Well... many people has been requesting for this guy (including me)... but... nothing happened, so as I said in my last post.. "this can works meanwhile" (Im going to keep that as part of my usual speech)
anyway... I uploaded this few months ago, and I had a rejection cos I used a body with no permission...then I made it myself but then came another problem etc etc etc etc.... so here is what I made with the maxis body, and the same face I did time ago (wich is 100% by me!!!! (just in case))


Here you have two versions of Mr. Bowie: the Ziggy Stardust (from the early 70s) and the Bowie look (as in the early 90s).
You can change his eye (cos he lost his left eye when he was a child), so you can use him with it or without it:




so.... the credits are:

He didn't lose his eye.. it's permanently dialated.. it's an injury from a fight he had with someone years ago.. he got punched in the eye and it can't be fixed.

Nice job on the sim, though.

the return of the Thin White Duke...

You have the features right for the later Bowie, but my memory of Ziggy is that he was extremely thin and gaunt.

If you'd like a meshing challenge, the Ziggy stardust outfit that had large cloth bangles (I think - I was only 11) might be worth trying. Around 1971, I think. The oufit he wore in the Ziggy Stardust movie.

Thanks a lot for this, I was actually about to ask!

They call you the Golden Avatar
but nobody really knows you as you are

and we like to see you shine...

LOL ! great work...
