Made Roger de Montsimquiou.  He's generically handsome and not particularly unique.  It's rather difficult to make a mustachioed, dark-haired man that doesn't remind one of Freddie Mercury somehow.

Anyhow, posed with Paul.  Aw...

I had to MasterController Roger's last name (it was too long) in and then tweak their relationship.  With Roger a proper snob and Paul socially awkward, I wasn't having any luck the normal way.

Previews I.

My recreation interpretation of Gaudi's Casa El Capricho is wrapping up nicely.

It's looking all swank in Monte Vista, though that Tuscan sun gives it such a glow.  I never played MV very much, so I was quite surprised when I found a 50x50 lot and the house fit so perfectly!  It was almost like I had made it for that exact location.  Crazy.  

The story will only be marginally connected to the house, but then I can't just build looney bins from now on!

Another stop for the story will be the Basilica di San Stefano.

Prior to this most recent simming, I'd been playing quite a bit of the Assassin's Creed series, getting caught up some.  I might have been inspired some by Florence architecture.  You can visit the church, get married, and do a leap of faith into a pile of hay.  Like normal people do.  

The ceiling is only painted for the picture.  I can't seem to paint them without horribly messing stuff up and getting floating tiles all over the place.  Anywho, only part of the interior done at the moment.

Working on sims from the Lovers' Rendezvous back story, as well. Paul Miderot is coming together.

Of course, he was making this face the whole time I was trying to take pics...

Which is oddly, very appropriate.

A Start.

Yay, I've decided to start a new blog.  I recently uploaded a house to MTS.  I had kind of formulated a back story while I built it, but when it came down to telling the tale, the whole concept just exploded into something more.  In the end, I had the origin story to a sim's version of "The King in Yellow", called, of course, "The Sim in Yellow".

For a few days now, the continuation of that story has been floating around in my head.  So the plan is now that I will go on to tell the story further, while building an accompanying location in The Sims 3 for each tidbit of information I share.  I'll also share here any related content that I do not upload to MTS, such as sim versions of the characters involved.

So yeah, wish me luck!
