Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

1983-2011




This sim was a request by pinkropes, and I just want to say thanks for requesting that I create her. She has been among the most challenging sims I've ever attempted to create. Her facial features just are so unique as they are, to get this cartoonized version of herself was very demanding of my abilities, and it really pushed me to my limits (as well as the edge of insanity).

Also, I know that the real Amy Winehouse had a lot of tattoos, and this one doesn't have any. Well.. I didn't want to put a bunch of EA crap tattoos that look nothing like Amy's, and I also didn't want to overload the CC with custom tattoos galore that look exactly like the real thing. So I just left her arms blank. Hope you guys don't mind too much.

Traits: Party Animal, Virtuoso, Unlucky
Lifetime Wish: Vocal Legend

Important! She is NOT packaged with the skin shown in the picture, but with EA skin. You can get the non-default skin she's wearing in the pictures here.

I'm really sorry for the overload of CC... Well, here goes...

Eyes:
Non-default (contacts) Eyes by -Shady- here

Hair:
Hair By Anubis360 here
Eyebrows by Elexis here

Makeup:
Eyeliner by SimsBrasil here
Blush by LadyFrontbum here
Lipgloss by daluved1 here
Piercing by IN3S here
Earring by necrodog here
Eye bags by Arisuka here

Clothing:
Metallic Bikini by LadyFrontbum here
Formal Dress by dutch here
Black Bra by Anubis360 here
Everyday Top by CmarNYC here

Sliders:
Septum Sliders by Awtmk here
Brow Ridge Slider by Jasumi here
I also used a slider range multiplier by 3. You can get this with awesomemod, Master Controller, or awtmk. I used Master Controller .

Note! If you don't have the sliders above, she will be completely fine, as long as you don't edit her in CAS. If you
try to edit her, then she will snap back.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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

Great likeness! Another great sim from you.

As a side comment, I'm amazed that you have used Elexis' eyebrows for all four of your sims but managed to make them look very different and fitting for each sim. That equates to a great job sculpting + a really versatile set of brows.

Don't mean to be nitpicky, but the eyeliner is a pay item from TSR Featured Artist Gosik (Great stuff, it's a shame they're pay). The link you've provided is to a site that re-uploads pay creations for free.

Thanks ameenah! I was wondering if anybody would notice that I used the same eyebrows! And about the eyeliner, I hope that I don't have to change it! I'm assuming that I don't since she's been uploaded as is. But thanks for the info.

Not a fan of Amy Winehouse exactly, but I must admit that she has a unique look and you did a great job in recreating that image.

^I'd have to disagree. The facial sculpt is probably the best I've seen of Amy Winehouse, and that's the important part. Even Amy took her hair down sometimes, and her makeup varied.

I loved Amy Winehouse sooooooon much! And it's funny, when I saw your sim in CFF, that night I had a dream that I got to sing with Amy.
