I figured that I'd share my little darling sim Ola n__n
He is my rendition of Ola Salo from the Swedish glam rock band The Ark, in the outfit that he wore for the Eurovision Song Contest. I couldn't make his jacket though, since I'm not a mesher, and I could not find a mesh that would fit.
The outfit icludes:
- A silver necklace (made as a top, not an accessory)
- Black trousers with sequins
- Silver boots/shoes
- Silverwhite gloves (they are in the trousers texture)

all meshes used are Maxis defaults.

EDIT: I realized it wasn't too wise to have the gloves in the trousers texture, so I've uploaded new versions where the gloves comes with the necklace, and the trousers are without gloves at all. This way, it's possible to wear other tops together with the trousers without being forced to use the gloves.

And uhm... the hair used is not included. I was too lazy, sorry >_<
The link to it can be found further down tho. And it's without any blond streak. I tried to recolor it, but realized that the texture for the bangs was the same for other parts of the hair, so it wouldn't work.

Have fun, and treat him nicely! An advice is to make him a pisces, since that's what he is IRL. Although quite vain and a lover of attention, he is also a thinker who loves discussions about philosophy, religion and sexuality.

More clothes for him can be found here, here and here

Great job...
But there is something about the mouth - maybe it's too wide...
Otherwise, great job!

I think Ola Salo's brain is doing wonders inside that pretty-boy face. It's a joy reading interviews with him - and I don't even like the Ark! o_o
Good job on him!!

Though the Vogon persistently referred to him as "my private brain care specialist" there was not a lot of brain to take care of.
