"I'm not a psychopath. I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research!"

As you may already know, Sherlock is a British television crime drama that presents a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Six episodes, broadcast since 2010, have been produced, with three more episodes scheduled to begin production in March 2013. I love "Sherlock" and I know many of my fellow simmers do too, so I decided to maybe try and make him into a sim. And he has such an interesting face, how could I resist (painful to sim really, even with all of the sliders) I don't think my sim is quite as lovely as the real Benedict, but what can ya do Unfortunately, the sim can't sound like the real thing either, LOL.

I think I should note that, as always, I kept the sim simmish as possible because any further tweaking caused distortion and weird shadows which is something I really hate.

The sim is an adult, and is packaged with default hair and skintone. Purple shirt and shoes are base game, pants are Supernatural. The coat is by cazarupt, and the hair is from the store. Other CC listed below

Custom Content:

- Contacts by Shady
- Blush by Kitty Klan
- Lips by Tamo
- Eyebags by Tifa
- Non-default skintone by Nilou
- Eyeliner by SLU - no. 13
- Eyelid by SLU - no. 1
- Brows by SLU - no. 4


- Extended Slider Range/Quantity: Awesomemod by Pescado set at 3x
- Additional Facial Sliders: by bella3k4 and aWT
- Sim height slider by Delphy
- Head shape slider by Jonha
- Head size slider by Jonha
- Overlip curve slider by Whiterider
- Chin to neck slider by hereit

As you probably already know, you only need these sliders if you intend to change the sim's face. If you like it the wayit is, then you'll be fine without the sliders.

So, that's it! Hope you'll have fun with Sherlock!

Thanks to all the CC makers and all the lovely tumblr simmers! <3

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

I have no words to express my sincere awe of your amazing talent and epicness. I'm truly grateful to you and if I could, I would give you a thousand thanks instead of only a teeny tiny one.

This is amazing! As an uber-fan I found a Russian-made one that took me hours to download because I can't read Russian and had to make an account and change the settings and all sorts, but I prefer this one definitely! You are truly an innnovator! I'm sure loads of people have tried and failed at his face, and have been waiting for such a brilliant recreation! YOU BEAUTY. Thank you!
Bowties are cool.

Thank you, everyone!

murfee - I don't know who made the lot, because their site is dead, but the link for download is here

KiraNWilfort - LOL, you noticed!

EsmeraldaF - Thnak you

PainAndDaffodils - Aw, thank you, you're too sweet <3

gravel-in-a-blender - Aww, thanks <3 It is an awfully difficult face to sim, I admit. I had to start from scratch a few times...I don't think the mouth area is perfect, though, because it's just impossible to replicate it on a sim. But I'm happy how he turned out

Aw, you got ahead of me! I was considering posting my version of Sherlock I made in the Sims 3 on here! Anyways, nicely done, but I'm going to stick with the Sherlock sim it took me hours and hours to create.

FREEDOM_55 - Thank you!

FavoleKS - Hm, well that's odd. Do you have all of the sliders? If you don't manage to resolve this, feel free to PM me and I'll send you .sims3pack.

Yavanna - I'm still working on John

whoviangeek - Love you, too!

babydawl - Aw, thanks! :D

kittykat - Oh, but just because I posted my version, doesn't mean you can't post your own. There's room for at least two TS3 Sherlocks here, don't you think? It's also good for the downloaders to have more choice. By all means, don't let me stop you from uploading your version that you've worked so hard on

Thank you so much - he's amazing! I can hardly believe I'm looking at a sim and not the real person. Wow! :D
One question though: Is there anywhere else I can download the hair he uses, maybe? Or a similar hairstyle I could use for him? Because when I try to download the hairstyle from the store, I click "download" and absolutely nothing happens. No matter if I try it in IE, Chrome, Firefox, nothing happens, not even a popup. I logged in first, my game is fully patched, and I don't know what else could be wrong. Very frustrating. =( And he won't be quite right without his curls! Dx Any ideas? I don't think I have any remotely similar hairstyles in my game right now.

Just wanted to drop by to say, amazing job on this sim I'm a big fan of the show (I'm busy reading the books now as a result of it, haha), and you've captured the personality of the modernised Sherlock perfectly! The resemblance is spot on, fantastic work.

HerGoldenHair - Hm, that's strange...I've searched, but couldn't find any other place to get the hair, and there is no similar one around. But if I find it, I'm gonna let you know

FreakAboutSims - I think that's utterly awesome and can't wait to see the movie!

Syva - Thank you so much <3

That's great MistyBlue!

Unfortunately I've tried it and may be because of sliders of something but the sim i get looks very little like the one in the pictures :/ Is there another way to get it? a sism3 pack or something? maybe that way it'd work
