Update 9/24/10 - This is a small update that's really not necessary for you to redownload the sim if you already have her. First, she has her proper name Barbie Roberts not Barbie Rogers. Secondly, she's been repackaged with Lemonleaf's contacts version of her eyes instead of the replacement. That way she'll maintain her iconic glance if you have a different set of replacement eyes. Lastly, she's been repackaged with the new version of the Golden Girl dress that I fixed over at Leefish.

Like I said, if you've already downloaded her, you don't really have to update her. Nothing about her appearance has changed.


Little known fact about daluved1:

She freaking loves Barbies!

It's true! Growing up as an only child, I spent many days sitting Indian-style in front of a doll house. Instead of getting me that little brother or sister that I always wanted for Christmas, my parents showered me with Barbie dolls and dream houses. So overtime I've acquired this...slightly insane...obsession with Barbie dolls.

I've been wanting to make a Barbie sim for while, so I decided to do one from my favorite era; the late 50s, early 60s model.

This doll has a distinct side-glance look, which is what really makes them so rare. I tried to make the sim resemble the doll as much as possible, while at the same time keeping the sim a sim.

About Barbie
-Young Adult/Female
-Ambitious (duh--she can do anything!)
-Family Oriented


I didn't stop just with the sim! I wanted to make Ms. Roberts extra special by giving her a custom wardrobe as well. All of these are are not included in the .rar file. They must be downloaded separately at LeeFish.

Her everyday outfit is made from a custom mesh (by me).

I also made Barbie's iconic striped pin-up suit.

And lastly, a simple formal outfit.

Hacks Used:
-Some sort of slider hack. I use the slider hack that's part of AD85's "coremod" set found here.
-Jonha's Sliders
-Delphy's Breast Sliders
-Facial Sliders by Ahmad (bella3lek4)
-Chin-to-Neck Slider by Heriet

**Barbie's face and body were altered extensively with custom sliders, without these sliders installed, the sim will *snap* out of shape whenever you try to alter her.

Custom Content By Me (Not Included):
Golden Girl Dress
Suburban Shopper Dress
Classic Pin-Up Suit
