This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Claire was originally created for a zombie story on tumblr. However, I loved her face so much that I wanted to share her.

Claire grew up on a rural farm, with cows for her closest neighbors and is now away from home for the first time as a freshman in university. She's more comfortable around animals than people, but she wouldn't consider herself shy. It just takes a little time for her to warm up to people, that's all. Claire loves the color pink and wears her cowboy boots with most everything. She's a girly-girl but she knows how to shoot a gun and gut a fish for dinner. Her dream in life is to finish university with high enough grades to be accepted to a veterinary post-grad program and, eventually, open her own practice back home specializing in large animal medicine for the local farms. She's sweet and would do anything for her friends and family. Claire has been known to loan money to friends, knowing that they'd likely never be able to pay it back. Though she may be a "nice girl", she's also determined and isn't likely to let anyone take advantage of her good nature.

Claire was sculpted without the use of extra sliders or a slider multiple.

CC Used:
Skin: teru_k WEAK-Freckle (non-default)*
Eyes: BrntWaffles Ephemera MS93 Edit (non default, contacts)**
Eyebrows: Ephemera Eyebrow Collection
Blush: Shyne Cheek Pores

Everyday Top: Lorandia Open Button Up
Formal Dress: Anubis Champion Glory
Swimwear: Juliana Sophie Bikini
Outerwear: NYGirl Peacoat (not pictured)

Custom Content Included:
Racer Back Tank Top by IN3S***
Dry Lips by IN3S***

The rest of her clothes and all of her hair are from various EPs. Pets is most important for the boots! Her hair for most outfits is from Island Paradise.

* Claire is packaged with default skin. The freckle skin has a lighter range than the default so she will look too red/pink before you apply the right one.
** If you use the defaults of those eyes, the colors are matched so you don't need the contacts. Only needed if you use a different eye default.
*** IN3S deleted her site and her items are no longer available.

Additional Credits:
Thanks especially to awwnooboo for requesting sims for her story. Otherwise, Claire would have never been created.

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.

Beautiful woman and very realistic. I also need help because I don't know how to download a sim that has a .package file. Also I'm afraid about downloading the eyebrow CCs.

She's not a package file, but a .sim file. For those, you need to place the .sim in your SavedSims folder.

You can install a .sim file without having all the recommended CC. The game will replace whatever CC, and even EP/SP content, you don't have with base game items.

This article might help both of you.

Gorgeous Sim, hard to imagine that she's slider-free at first glance!
Just curious where can I find this zombie story?
