waves to Seth MacFarlane

Sometimes I get inspired by pop culture stuff and it's one of this times, as you might have figured Family Guy is one of my fave TV shows, after Simpsons and Rick and Morty, so, Megan is a tribute to perhaps the most underestimated Griffin, the elder daughter Meg. Admit it, we've all been there, trying to find our place in school hierachy, working part-time to save for some cool brand stuff, fighting with our parents. It's a difficult time we all have to pass and I liked how the cartoon Meg stays honest and kind through most of the show.

Shy, sweet, true to herself, that's what Megan is like. She's a high school student working hard and trying to get into a "cool gang". Her friends can always count on her to have her back and helping hand if needed.

What will young Megan aspire to is now up to you. Send her to college? Hook her up with the school playboy? You're the master of her fate

Megan is a teen, so look for her in the appropriate age bin!

Please, take a while to grab the following meshes for Megan to show up exactly like she is in the screenshots:
  1. top-MESH-UPDATED.zip for the T-shirt
  2. widerlegs-MESH-UPDATED.zip for the jeans
  3. Eyeglasses_TS3_Oval.zip for her glasses

Her hat is a part of her hair and the hair mesh is included in the sims2pack thanks to Trapping and SerenityFall's generous policy!

Please, note: Due to the way Megan's face is sculpted (relatively short face and wide nose bridge), when she ages up to adult, most of the glasses will sink into her nose, including the ones she's packed with as a teen. There's nothing I could do about this, unfortunately. I tried all of the CC glasses I have and the ones that seemed to fit (still with some minor clipping, but they sit at eye area properly at least) are the Thin Framed Glasses by Morague. Adult Megan is shown wearing them in the screenshot. You could either give her these glasses or switch to "contacts". If you find a better eyewear option for her, let me know!

Hope Megan will make a nice addition to your hood!

I looked at the pictures first, and then I read the description and when you said you were going for Meg from Family Guy it all clicked. The Sim does remind me of Meg. After seeing your Ed Sheeran I had to google pictures and compare, and there are some really neat details in there. Like the mascara you choose that's only at the corners of the eye, just like the cartoon that has two lashes at the side of the eye.

I think it's neat that you take Sims that would be difficult to copy properly due to the limitations of the game engine, it's interesting to see how you work around that and manage to achieve a similarity despite the limitations. Besides it's always nice seeing Sims with an alternative face structure, not just another pretty face Sim

And there I was, whining I don't get comments, haha Thank you for your attention to Megan! I'm very glad you like her. I didn't intend to make her an exact copy of Family Guy Meg, more like "bring her to life" and see what a girl of her type could have looked like if she would've been my (or yours or somebody else's) schoolmate. I guess I achieved that )

I guess some of the details just fit into the whole image neatly so I roll with them. That mascara you've noticed, I usually apply it for a natural/everyday look. I didn't really think of nuances that small like corner lashes, tbh, but I'm glad you see them fit into her image!

Regarding making difficulties... well, Megan seemed relatively easy to make, even though I've restarted on her from scratch 2 or 3 times. Some of the persons I pick to sim (mostly my celebrity crushes, lol) are really a major pain in the backside, like the guy I'm working on now. Makes me want to headdesk and throw my laptop out of the window, lol. But I'm stubborn and I will finish him. Sorta too many ladies on my profile, haha. And yeah, I agree, diverse faces make game more interesting! So more I will bring to ya!!!

Oh, and excuse my English and my mistakes, if any, me iz not a native
