Fangtasia Shirt for Sims 3

finished-fangtasia-shirtYou know what I find really annoying?

The lack of a forehead slider in Sims 3.

What’s funny is that I didn’t even realize that the forehead slider was missing until I started trying to create Eric Northman. Alexander Skarsgård, the actor who plays Eric Northman in True Blood, has a rather pronounced forehead and try as I might, I couldn’t get the look just right.

In fact, after all of the problems that I had making this rather simple tank top, I pretty much gave up on Eric.

So. Yeah. The shirt.

Last night I was ridiculously proud of myself and my shirt. I even uploaded it to Mod the Sims so that you guys could download it if you are so inclined. It’s waiting on approval [which might not happen] and if it gets approved then I’ll provide a link for you.

But today, after having some time away from my creation, I’ve decided that the shirt isn’t nearly as good as I thought it was.

The text is a bit hard to read so I think that I’ll give it another go today.

If you’re interested in trying your hand at making your own clothes for Sims 3, you’re going to need this stuff:

  • Delphy’s CAS Texture Unitool – allows you to extract textures and meshes so that you can create stuff
  • Photoshop, GIMP or some other type of photo editing program
  • Tutorial to create custom clothing stencils -  teaches you how to put purty pictures on your clothing
  • lots of coffee and patience – You’re going to be working on this for a while and will probably make a lot of mistakes.

I’ve been bitten by the “custom clothing” bug and really want to make a better Fangtasia shirt. I think that’s my plan for the day.

If you make something really awesome, send me a link and I’ll post it on here.
