So, we've had lots and lots of wonderful new sliders over a few recent months and I felt an urge to redo some of my sims to make them, perhaps, even prettier or even closer to their irl prototypes. I don't know if I will do this to ALL of my pixel folks, but I certainly wanted to redo my selfie... and I finally had the guts to give her a figure closer to my actual one, too. Yay, I guess?

Okay, so, Summer comes with an outfit on a Momma Lisa mesh by JulieJ and a lovely skintone made showerproof for the corresponding nude mesh by yours truly (original found here - author's Tumblr seems to be removed, but the skin is still accessible through the direct download link). Speaking of, nude meshes are included in the archive for your convenience, since Sims2Graveyard that hosts Frannysims' files, is currently down due to server issues. I take no credit for them, ofc. Oh, by the way, it was my first time operating with bodyshapes/making showerproof skintones, so everything should function fine... but if it doesn't, let me know, I'll try to track the issue down and fix it!

I threw the outfit together from a jean romper I borrowed from MissTiikeri's "Every inch of you" set (found here in her archive folder on MediaFire), and a jumper texture I conjured up myself quickhandedly in Photoshop. Pattern used for the tights decals is Ur Always With Me by Shy_Violet & anneclairdelune.

Since BodyShop doesn't include accessory meshes into the sims2pack, don't forget to grab the mesh for the collar acc Summer's wearing at Cassis' blog here

Summer is a friendly gal in her middle twenties who needs a bit of help maturing and finding her place in life. Will you help her do that?
Treat her well and I hope you enjoy playing with her!

I learned that finding a good assortment of clothes for curvy chicks can be problematic (how realistic and lifelike goddamnit), so if you'd like to bring some size diversity into your hood by downloading Summer, check under the spoiler for some places to stock you up on MommaLisa clothes:

Have fun!
