Gorgeous. I noticed one feature that you may be missed. I might be wrong actually. But
I think all of members of Romanov family has eyes that a little bit stretched. They all has big eyes but when talk about sims and sliders, that could be done with eye stretch. I stretched a little bit all of the eyes of each family member if I were you. Just a little bit in one or two clicks. Other face features are neat.

I added the picture. I tried my best in Paint. Sorry

Don't stick on it then. That's not so important. I like Olga's hair. Very alike and so good for ear jewelry!

I think they are good enough and their genetics is well done. You could try to find more accessoires to make them look like rich girls broad-brims, pearl earrings, layered necklaces, antique pendants, laced umbrellas etc.

Default My revised version of Alexei
Sorry to be so late with this. I actually finished him (as far as I felt I could go) four days ago, and only been trying to get the pictures right since.



At this stage I think it's best if you use your own version, but you are welcome to use anything from mine that you want to. I revised his face a bit using the profile that Victor_tor posted in post #10 above. Bear in mind that I know I'm almost face blind, so yours is probably a better likeness. The only mild criticism I have of yours is that I think Alexei's ears stick out a bit more.

Known problems with my Alexei: The Newsea hair I have used is too light. It is also too long for him at the end of his life. A darker version of it might be right for him if he started to to grow it again on being granted sanctuary, so I might use such a version for him later in my own game. Alexei appears to have had dark red-brown hair. Newsea terms of use do not appear to allow recolours. I'm afraid I'd ignore that if it was just for my own use, but I'd have to pay attention to it for sharing. I could ask Newsea for permission to make a darker recolour, but that would only make sense to me if recolour was going to be shared, or (as it would be in this case) if it was going to be shared along with a Sim. Actually Alexei had his hair in a short fringe near the end of his (short) life; see picture below.

According to his tutor Pierre Gilliard Alexei had blue-grey eyes; his mother's Lady in Waiting Sophie Buxhoeveden described them as dark blue. I have used Maxis light blue eyes, but it should be quite easy to make blue-grey ones in Body Shop. Someone must have made them already, but I've never really used CC eyes in my game, so I don't have any. Gilliard described Alexei's eyes as large but they seem quite narrow to me in his photos. I've made them as a compromise between large and narrow (I made them large and then reduced the height), but I probably I should have been guided more by his pictures. I haven't got his eyebrows right either.

I'd like to conclude the post with a couple of real life pictures of Alexei. These are taken from his Wikipedia page.


Sorry for being so slow -- I get very emotional working on this.

@AndrewGloria @Victor_tor

AndrewGloria Yours is very good! Quiet similar to mine so good job Though I probably will use mine just so I don't waste it but I can fix his ears sure. As for hair yes I will likely be doing hair recolors for all children as the colors they had are not options in game. Sure I can do blue grey eyes no problem only takes 5 minutes besides I just found out Tatiana had dark grey eyes so I had to change blue to grey, not sure about Tatiana Maria or Anastasia do you know if it was written what their eye color was

Tis a pity they never should have been sent to Yaketerinburg not like the girls could inherit and they had to Alexei was to weak to rule UGH it's so wrong And yes stress tends to cause a person to age faster as can chronic illness

in the meanwhile here is Alexandra and nicholas could not find a good quality photo of Alix in or around 1918 only younger also could not decide on a hairstyle. Also unfortunately like i said before I accidentally deleted Nicolas and had to start him over

@Mischief Managed

Sorry to post yet again, but I'm thinking that, since Alexei seems to have had is hair in a short fringe at the end of his life, it would be best to share him with such a hair. Of the ones available to me on my own PC this base game hair is probably the best:
Again Alexei seems to have blinked his eyes just as I pressed the shutter; he seems to be making a habit of this! It should be possible to make a recolour of this hair with a bit more red. There are probably better CC hairs available. I know that Peggy had some male hairs available in a red-brown colour which I think is nearer. Unfortunately the only ones I have are far too long. All Peggy's free hairs are available on Simscave, but I've forgotten my logon to Simscave so I can't see them.

Anyway you're doing a great job. I'm looking forward to seeing the Romanovs in Veronaville before too long.

@AndrewGloria First of all Thank you, I was looking for that hair and I found it thanks to you and thank you for compliment

Second of all I cannot Identify color so I tried to make red brown I'll post 2 pictures first regular in game brown and then mine



Is this auburn?

I prefer the second one. It's what I would call auburn, and what I was aiming at for Alexei. My sister's hair was also called auburn. When she was a toddler it was quite red, but it turned browner as she grew up. By the time she was in her teens it was much the same as Alexei's in the second picture. Even today at 67 her hair still has a hint of red. I suspect Alexei's hair colour changed over time in much the same way as my sister's. (My own hair was blond as a toddler, fading to mousey light brown as a teen.) Alexei is looking really good!

@AndrewGloria Oh ok good

also here are two more hair options for anastasia I myself prefer the first option 3rd color but figured get a second option but I believe she and olga had lighter/redish hair compared to Tatiana and Maria




UPDATE: I WAS able to find an actual auburn hair for Alexei


Also more hair styles for Maria though personally it's between the last 2

I thought your sims are ready to share. But now I see they are still in developing.
I am not experienced in hair colors. I can't help with things I am not experienced. They are all brown haired for my taste. But I will help you with anything depending historical accuracy, if you'll ever need it.

@Mischief Managed

I agree with you about Anastasia; I'd go for first option third colour. For Maria I'd go for the last one. But these are very slight preferences. I generally prefer a little hair over the forehead as I think it makes people look younger, compared to a hairless brow. (When I had chicken pox as a child I scratched a pimple off on my forehead -- despite being told no to! -- and it's left me with a pock-mark there ever since. I've been trying to cover it with hair for over sixty years now!) In general I agree with Victor_tor; this family really is ready for upload now. I was afraid you wouldn't be able to find teenage dresses for Anastasia and Maria, but the ones they're wearing look perfectly good. As I understand it, you'll be sharing Nicholas, Alexandra, Olga and Tatiana as adults, and Maria, Anastasia and Alexei as teens?

I'd make one change still to Alexei -- I'd make his ears stick out a little more. Nopke made an Ear Sticking-Out custom slider. It's included in her set of 20 sliders (not to be confused with her set of 24 sliders). You probably have them already.

@Victor_tor Thank you and so did I untill I read the girls had different hair colors Also I am partially color blind can't identify color so. And thank you have been such a great help the biggest thing I need help with right now is fixing Nicholas.

@AndrewGloria Thank you for hairstyle was trying to do like the 1914 photos below. Funny you should mention but I believe the reason Anastasia had bangs was to cover a scar on her forehead though I don't know from what. and yes Maria Anastasia and Aelexi will be teens and the others adults, I tried to figure out their ages in game compared to when they died whoch were 22, 21 19, 17, and 13

Yes I do have those sliders and I can work on that today and if I can finish Nicholas today/tomorrow I can put them in game take pictures and prepare for upload as that really is all that's left. Again thank you for the help

Those are stage dresses that were not worn in usual life. I mean girls were specially dressed for those photo. I'd rather say that their dresses here are formal. Girls in your photo were dressed more casually. Is this a photo for thread to upload?

@Victor_tor Yes I know the girls and alexei were dressed more casual during regular life which is why I went with these dresses. Also when you upload sims are only able to include their everyday outfit I just figured this would be a good in game comparison. So in according to rules and the available CC these Romanovs will be wearing slightly more casual then perhaps they did in real life but then again they preferred a sense of simple then as well
