This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Anyone who’s seen my other uploads could probably guess that I was going to get round to this eventually. So here after about 20 attempts (that my self sim went through black widow style) is my version of Gerard Way, lead singer of the band My Chemical Romance, which in my mind looks very, very close to the real thing – without using facial masks because I personally don’t like them.


This post contains the Helena version of Gerard as in all pictures shown the facial structure, eyes, and skin tone are identical it’s only the hair, make-up and clothing which differs. However as a bonus the zip also conatins my version of the uniform worn in the Ghost of You video.


The packaged version of the sim needs one mesh the link to which is highlighted in bold, and credits for the custom content go to:

Skin: Enayla
Hair: Edited texture by Jaydee (correctly binned) needs mesh by Kavar
Eyes: Mine - well Gerard’s carefully extracted from a picture and placed on Knightskykyte’s gorgeous sclera which can be found here.
Brows: Helaene
Eye Shadow & liner: liegenschonheit from her wonderful Gutter Baby range.
Clothing: Me – both items will work for young adults and adults and use maxis base game meshes. The Helena outfit uses the bat belt texture found on this outfit.


Installation:
Download and unzip put Ghost of You outfit .package file directly into your downloads folder. For the rest of the content double click on the sims2pack file to install it.

If you need help please look at the site's guide on installing cc which is here.

Suggested Content:
These items are not included in the download but look rather good on the sim so if you want them follow the links.


Black Parade/Short Black Hair Style:

Hair: In both cases the short hair is by the wonderful HystericalParoxysm and can be found here. The red streaked hair is by Xoulz and is here. The hair worn by the Ghost of You style sim is a maxis base game style.


Outfits: The Black Parade Uniform is by me and can be found here while the outfit with the black and white tie is also mine and is available here along with another couple of outfits. The bullet proof vest outfit is by Xoulz and can be found here.


I have a slightly more detailed policy on my user profile but very simply -

Do
Use my sims in your stories, pics & movies.
Use any parts created by me in your uploads but please ensure everything remains only on free sites.

Don't
Reupload the complete sim/a modified version of the sim anywhere - by this I mean mostly the face sculpt this is the unique part that took me ages to get right.
Claim the sim as your own work.
Upload any item made by me to a paysite, and yes this includes TSR.


Enjoy!

This is the best likeness of him I've seen - I've been using one from insimenator I got a while back. He'll definitely be replaced with your version :D

I have floor tickets to see them in may, I can't wait!

*squeals* I've been waiting for him! Fantastic job I've seen of him, he's so close to the real thing (who is simply amazing when you see him live, as is the rest of the band). He's an amazing man. Thanks for uploading!

Nice work!
But I honestly don't see why this has been featured?!

It's featured because it was decided by the moderators that it deserved it. It's an incredible likeness and deserving of it. If you don't agree, that's fine. But it's not up to you - and features are chosen and agreed upon by multiple moderators.

Discussion of if an item deserves to be featured or not is not allowed by people outside of moderators and is defnitely not allowed in the thread - that's rude, disrespectful and just plain mean. Further posts will be removed.

I'm not an MCR fan, but you've captured him perfectly, a well deserved feature. Great job!

good likeness, i'm jealous you captured it

i'm trying to make a gerard, and i've got the technical details of his features but i can't find the thing that will make them all mesh and look like him

Omgosh your such a super star, i've always wanted to see an newer Gerard and you've made him so close to the real Gerard ^^ *Gets to see real Gerard real soon*

#17 Old 7th Mar 2007 at 5:25 PM
He looks very good. While I'm not an MCR fan, I have to say, this is by far the BEST likeness I've seen of him. A very well deserved feature indeed.
I have a female sim who'd love to meet him.
Edit: make that several female sims who'd like to meet him.

That's the most amazing sim I've ever seen. I'm just pondering the ethics of killing off my crappy homemade Gerard and replacing him with this one. I'd feel bad for his wife and 3 kids (not to mention sim Mikey!), but on the other hand this one's a whole lot better looking! Hmmm....

For those of you who like him thanks for all the comments it helps to make creating feel worth it, and being featured takes my breath away.

You certainly are entitled to your own opinion on my sim - I'm glad you at least like the clothes...

However I fail to see how I'm taking over things, no one has ever said anything to me, and people in this comm do tend to be rather vocal.

I make whatever I want to make based on what I want in my game and share most of it because currently I see no reason not to.

Yes, some of it is MCR stuff but that doesn't preclude anyone else from making items related to the band and uploading them to the site - as long as they're of good enough quality then they'll be approved.
