Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is my version of Dobby the elf from the Harry Potter series. It's inspired from the one in the movies with a little bit more of my imagination. I couldn't find a way to make a male pillowcase so Dobby is a female with a recoloured dress

To get a nicer, more appropriate size, use the "stretchskeleton 0.9" cheat.

Enjoy! Redistribution and recolouring conditions in the zip file.

Custom Content by Me:
- Dobby the Sim
- Dobby's skin
- Dobby's invisible hair
- Dobby's Pillowcase

Additional Credits:
Thanks to Empress Sapphire at SapphireSims2.com for the basic idea (sorry for forgeting ). You can find her version here: http://sapphiresims2.com/showthread...highlight=dobby

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

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Wow!!! That's really amazing. I have no idea how you make a sim look so much like a nonhuman character, but this looks great!

I've made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims1ModsByCorylea.html

Dobby the elf looks great.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Oh, Dobby is so adorable! Thanks a lot for this. I love Harry Potter! This Dobby sim will fit in quite nicely with my other HP sims and objects

Please. DON'T ask me who Frazier is, or I'll hurt you.

I'm downloading this! Then I can reinact scenes in Shell Cottage with my son. Totally awesome! Thanks for sharing this. He will be treasured in my Potter world!

Are there kid wrinkles for the skin? With a few wrinkles he (she ... ) will be perfect!

Oh this is so amazing how you make a Sim become a character from another world.
You must have great talent and artistic views.
I know this must of been time consuming and I appreciate your hard work in all your projects.
Thank You and Happy New Year.

A very nice try indeed. Not quite alike, yet good enough for TS2 . Looks weird from the front, awesome from the side (someone skillful should make a dobby-ears accessory mesh) Thanks a lot.

It's not very good, sorry

I love realism in my game. But not to the point where it looks ugly.

Well, I couldn't find it anywhere on the site. It's better than nothing. I'll try to make it better next time. :D

I think you did an amazing job on this. I tried to make a Dobby myself and this is way better than anything I did. He's a hard one to duplicate. Thanks so much for the download. :D
