Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ron is a dunghead.

Right, with that off my chest, let's get on with it. Ron is my final submission to the trio series. He was a bit easier to make than Harry and Hermione... which is a crime, isn't it? He must be so difficult to deal with in PotterLand. But it took hours in Bodyshop, getting his face just right. He's mine and please do not steal him from me.

So, this malefactor whom has been scribbling all over my screenshots is modeled after Rupert Grint, who plays Ron in the movies. That is, he's modeled after Rupert in The Prisoner of Azkaban, which is when I think the trio looked their best.

There is a Teen and Young Adult download here. Again, if you open the teen Ron Sim in the Create-A-Family screen and make him grow into Young Adult, he turns into a real troll. A REAL troll. Ha ha.

Here's a list of the wonderful creations I've used by some wonderful creators, and mine:

Skin Tone: Halaene's 1/12 skin – light ........
Hair: Long Messy Hair by CORiS recolour by me. YOU NEED THE MESH FOR IT TO APPEAR IN THE GAME.
Get it here ->
Eyes: JoanneDyer's Small Eyes ........
Eyebrows: Peggy's ........
Lips: Seomi's lips in Vivid ........
Mask: My own (supplied)
Clothes: Maxis recolour by Me ........

Please leave a comment or give thanks if you downloaded this Sim!
Have fun!

Wow....that looks just like him. Good job, man. I think this is probably one of the best celebrity sims I've seen, if not THE best.

Wow! That's really good. So, downloaded it! Was wondering if you did requests. Could you do Fred and George as James and Oliver? It's okay if you don't, I've just been looking for ages for a good set, but none I've found even look remotely like them or they are just for teens. I know a few other people that have been looking for a pair too. If it's too much to ask for or I'm asking in the wrong place, I'm really sorry.

Ohhhh how nice! So beautiful :}

Great job. He looks so cute, so childish... I do feel like huging him until his eyes pop out of his head. heheh... But it's really, REALLY, well done. I tried to do a Rupert Grint sim before, but it turned out such a disaster, yuck! I supose know how hard it was...

anyway, thank you a lot!

in desperate need of improving my rupert grint sim :|

His hair is not appearing in the BodyShop or in the game. Please, post the hair mesh to the download work properly. And his head when he is a Young Adult isn't appearing, too!

But I love your sim! It's perfect! You're the best artist here!

Default Hair Mesh
loocoldplayer: I didn't make the mesh, it's a recolour. I can't attach it to the download, as it's not mine. The link to the original is in the drabble that came with the upload. The drabble has meaning.

And thaks for the compliments :D

Kittywantscake: You know what, the Phelps twins wouldn't be a bad idea. I'm doing Tom Felton at the moment, so I may work on the twins next.

I have just realized to the gross mind, that entire paragraph could be taken very wrongly.

bloodycadaver: I've never used Q-xpress installer myself. I use ExtractNow, which is much simpler. You can get it here --->

I have version 3.56, but I'm sure this one is an improvement over mine.

troubledrose94: Certainly. The thumbnail is currently waiting for approval, it shouldn't take TOO long.

I was looking for Tom Felton, but I haven't found a good! I'm sure that your Tom will be perfect, too, like your Dan, Emma and Rup. Great job again!

loocoldplayer: First of all, what do you mean by 'DR/Harry Potter'? May be a stupid question, but as I have said, I put a lot of work into my creations and I do not that them disrespected - I need to understand exactly that you want to do with it.

Which website do you mean? didn't work for me, but already looks fab - well done!

By the way, I read the staff page on are you really 12 years old???

This is one of the most realistic likenesses I have ever seen of a real person simified, especially since teens are harder to sim. Wow.
