Vivian Nguyen is a reserved sim who likes to live life with zen-like elegance. She is is very self-contained and not easy to get to know, but once you do, you'll find out she is really very sweet.

(If she is too sweet for you, she also looks great all punked up too.)

* Neat
* Perfectionist
* Unflirty
* Vegetarian
* Virtuoso

* French Toast
* Classical Music
* Grey

Lifetime Wish:
* Master of the Arts



If you would like Vivian to look exactly as she does in my pictures, I use...

* Eye Defaults: by Aikea Guinea
* Face Skin Defaults: by Aikea Guinea
* Body Skin Defaults: by HystericalParoxism
* Shine Defaults: by HystericalParoxism
* Slider Hack: I used Rick & Delphy's to create Vivian. If you are going to play around with her facial structure in CAS you will need to have either that, or AwesomeMod or Indie Stone installed in order to avoid her parameters resetting.


Vivian's blouse uses DecoSwirl by Lethe_s from her Deco Pattern Set!
Her pyjama pants use #7 by ashleydoom from her 10 Mixed Patterns


Download and extract from the zip file then simply place the .SIM file in your My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims\ folder. Then you'll find her in CAS in your pre-made Sim Bin.

Meshes needed! This download requires one or more meshes to work properly. Please check the Description tab for information about the meshes needed, then download them below:
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Ah, she's quite lovely. I don't normally download other people's sims because it feels almost lazy to me, but I'll make a definite exception for her since she's so unique.

Thanks for the upload!

That mouth is a little Liv Tylerish, now I look at it. Feel free to use it for a LivTyler Sim, anyone. Lol

And thank you all for the thanks.

Heya, I can't seem to find a saved sims folder anywhere, I have a 'Saves" folder. But that's it.

Any help?

Andrea, if you haven't saved any Sims to your Sim Bin yet, you wouldn't have one. But you can just create the folder yourself. If you have the game installed to the default location (for Win XP anyway), it should be in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saved Sims.

If you are using a another OS, let me know and I'll chase down the default for you.

Actually, I'm an Australian who was born in NZ and whose parents are Dutch & Spanish/Portuguese. But I live in Melbourne. There is a large Vietnamese population here so Nguyen is a relatively common surname. Lol.

I like her a lot. She's got a very interesting and very pretty face. Thanks for sharing

Wow! This is really amazing work. One of the more realistic faces I've come across. She had the same hairstyle as another of my sims, so after adding her to my household, I switched her base hair colour to blond but kept the darker highlights. It looks really edgy and she keeps her beautifully exotic look. Thanks again for a great addition.
