"I want to take the ears off, but I can't. I hop, and when I hop I never get off the ground. It's my curse, my eternal curse. I want to take the ears off but I can't! It's my curse, it's my frakking curse! I want to take the ears off! PLEASE! TAKE THEM OFF!" -Sander Cohen

Tedious Intro

I found the limits of Sim creating in The Sims 2 to be horrid, right from the start. But, when I got The Sims 3, I realized just how much I'd missed out on. Inspired by the Maxis-Match Sims of the amazing fanseelamb, who doesn't use abhorrent facemasks or those awful, awful shiny skins, I decided to make a celebrity Sim that isn't a picture-perfect replica, but rather a caricature of sorts. I think I've captured his essence quite well, especially considering my lack of skills with Sim creation :3

Moving along, I created three pieces of custom content for him; I edited HP's fantabulous Idolatry of Flesh skin in place of making a facemask (I needed a white scalp, too), retextured the Unsavory Charlatan's moustache from Bon Voyage and recolored the dancer's tuxedo from Freetime. So you'll need those expansions to see him properly. If I get enough demand, I'll try and make a basegame compatible version.

I'm Sander frakking Cohen!

Grief Counselling and Cake

Without further ado, here's Sander frakking Cohen!

I took his basic look and vibe from the amazing BioShock, but edited it a little bit to make him look a little less "I'm a flamboyant theatrical who's slightly crazy" to "I'm a flamboyant theatrical who's going to coat you in plaster and eat your children"

Feel free to do with him what you will; just don't pretend he's Cole Porter and pair him off with a female, please. I have a feeling he'd enjoy the company of a certain egotistical billionaire city builder. If you know what I mean

Fly, little moth; fly away!

Do's and Don't's

Please don't redistribute him or the CC I made for him without asking me first. Also, if you use him in a story or movie, or even if you make a few tweaks to make him more accurate to the game, please contact me - I love to keep tabs on my creations. This isn't a sperm bank, after all.

DUDE. This is amazing. It's great you didn't try to screenshot-skin him, going for a Maxis-match look instead. He looks both like himself and an actual sim. So. Freaking. Cash.

Awwwwww... D:
Oh well. Great sim anyway. He'll just have a me-sim following him around, fawning over him, and being rejected...

Thanks for this, Cohen, and Bioshock are of my favorites in videogames, and you captured the feeling of Cohen in this sim while keeping in it looking as, well, a Sim
Great Job

I applaud you for being the first person on MTS to create something relating to Bioshock! I love that game, and I love this Sim you've created based off of it(: Good job c:

This is fantastic, I've recently gone back to playing Sim 2 and have been looking for new downloads, and found this - wonderful job! (Bioshock is one of my fave games.) Now I can have him taunting my sims, calling everyone 'Little Moth'.
