This download is part of the Old Hollywood Creator Challenge
With great help from Paleoanth and SimplicityFlower (also,thanks to Vera Marina and Mooch for their input) in Creator Feedback forum,I was finally able to finish my Clara. And,of course,I wish to thank to all creators whose work I used to make this Sim. I had no luck in finding suitable hair,but I hope the hat helps

Clara Bow was a silent movie actress,a flapper and the original "It Girl". She was also an inspiration for the Betty Boop cartoon character If you don't know much about Clara but you'd like to,then visit Wikipedia.

I just love her and I just had to do a Sim of hers

Hair with hat seen on the screenshots is from All About Style, download it here.

Dress is also by All About Style,and besides that one,here you can find more wonderful '20s outfits to dress Clara in

We all inherit a blank canvas. How will you paint yours?

Wow! Great job! And I never had any idea she was a redhead O_O
#8 Old 16th Oct 2007 at 12:02 AM
I downloaded her earlier, but couldn't comment then, so I came to do so.
I NEVER thought anyone would make her ever, and she is really good.
I just wish someone would make Betty Boop cause I can't find her anywhere.
If you ever make Betty or know somewhere she is, can you tell me?
Anyway, Clara looks great in my game.

Well,she wasn't a natural redhead,actually.When people heard that she puts henna in her hair,the sales of the dye tripled

@ GreenDay
Unfortunately,I don't know did anyone make Betty Boop sim,but everything's possible

Default GORGEOUS but...
Wow. So gorgeous! I don't think that hat does her justice! I downloaded her and used this hair from raonsims (HAIR41)

I just used this color...

Bowties are cool.

But I had a hard time finding a hair for her,and I DID try to use this hair,but it seemed to cover too much of her face and also,somehow it just didn't feel right..It's a wonderful hair,though,and of course everyone's more than welcome to use on her any hair they prefer

She looks lovely! And about the hair, I think you did great using the hat after all; I like to make vintage sims too, and I know it's very hard to find suitable hairs for them...
She is a beauty! Thanks!

You know the way it twists and turns,changing colour,spining yarns
You know the way it leaves you dry, It cuts you up, it takes you high
You know the way it throws about,It takes you in and spits you out

She looks exquisite, you did a marvelous job. Well done!

XM sims has a lot of hairs with scarves for anyone that might want that look, I used their hairs constantly before I got sims 3!
