Thranduil is one of Tolkien's many characters from Middle Earth. He appears in "the Hobbit" and is the elven king of Mirkwood, and Legolas' father. Thranduil is from Sindar origin (the Eldar blood line), but lives by and rule over the common wood elves (also called Silvan elves). In Peter Jackson's movies, the elf king is adapted by the American actor Lee Pace. I'm afraid you can't simply change the sims hair to get the actors look, as I have mainly focused on the character's look (note eyebrows, eyes, hair line etc.).

Recommended traits: Green Thumb (a must when you live in the middle of a great forest), Charismatic (this guy can make your legs shake just by just a simple look), No sense of humor (the elf king is not known for smiling a lot), Snob (even in battle his hair is irresistible), Brave (something you need to be when you live close to Dol Guldur.

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.

The link for Thranduil's crown doesn't work; therefore, for anyone who needs it, it is here: http://ersch-workshop-sims.blogspot...for-sims-3.html.
