moonlight falls meet and greet

I think EA did a great job on this Bewitched family parody, The Durwoods.

  • Serena is Samantha…and funny enough the name Serena is from Bewitched, Samantha's cousin who was played by the same actress.
  • Doreen looks a LOT like Endora and it is interesting that her last name is Caliente.
  • Rick is Darrin and some of the expressions he makes in game look just like the second actor to play Darrin in Bewitched. He has big ears because Doreen, with the help of a fairy, tried to curse him. It backfired because apparently Serena loves big ears. :D
  • Zoe is Tabitha and interestingly, she does not seem to be a witch. I might change that.
  • And last is Zach, who is Adam from the show. He originally had blond hair in game. I changed it to brown, to match Bewitched. :D

Faith MacDuff is a typical brooding teen who is sick of having to deal with her older brothers’ pranks. If she were a witch like her dad, maybe she could cast a spell to make the twins disappear, but for now she just spends most of her time in her bedroom. She doesn’t have many friends but Faith doesn’t care about that. She’s happy listening to music and, with her innate artistic abilities, letting her paintbrush fly across the canvas. Now if her twin brothers would just move out so she can finally have some peace and quiet!

So who else sees Ginny Weasley? *raises hand* 

Moonlight Falls Meet and Greet

Joe MacDuff inherited his love of pulling pranks from his father, and, being a natural competitor, he’s never content to let his twin brother, Jules MacDuff, outdo him It doesn’t help that Jules calls him “Average Joe”. Joe can’t help it if he didn’t inherit his father’s magical abilities while Jules did. But that just motivates him even more.

Lady’s and gentleman, Moonlight Falls very own  Fred and George Weasley!

The next family on our meet and greet tour of Moonlight Falls is the Nix family. Supposedly the most normal family in town. Mike is a doctor and Anne is a stay at home mom. They were high school sweeties who got married and are trying to give their daughter Mara a good life.

Mara already feels like she does not fit in…being a human kid and normal :p She looks a little sad to me….Maybe like her parents, she will fall in love with her high school sweety, a vamp, a werewolf, a fairy or a ghost…the choices are endless!

Willie may not bounce off the walls quite as hard as her kid brother, Gator, but she definitely has a curious streak that can get her into trouble. Willie is fascinated with other Sims, whether they’re vamps, ghosts, fairies, humans, or whatever! It doesn’t take much to impress this young Wolff with an infectious laugh that warms the heart. When she’s not curled up on the sofa she’s walking around and sticking her nose into other Sims’ business. Her snooping and sleuthing around might make her the perfect detective when she grows up!

The only girl child in the Wolff clan. Isn’t she just so cute? Lookit those freckles….wait…what is happening? Oh good God, ACK!

Taking after his father, Tristan Van Gould is very polite and more than a little stubborn. Unlike his dad though, Tristan has a strong romantic streak in him, and he often stays up late composing love ballads on his guitar. He hopes to be a world famous musician someday. Although he has had many first dates, it’s getting to that second date that’s always eluded him. He might seem quiet or even brooding to most, but Tristan knows he’s just saving up his most powerful emotions for that one special Sim…

So this is EA’s version of Edward Cullen :p He even looks like him! And now that I look at Ayden, Tristan’s “father”, he reminds me a little of Carlisle Cullen! Twilight stuff does not bug me. I know it really bothers some people but I actually was pretty impressed with how cute Tristan is.

Moonlight Falls Meet and Greet! I am going to go visit and learn all about the townies in Moonlight Falls. I just love doing this and love sharing it with you all. 

Let me tell you, Moonlight Falls has townies with very, very detailed bios. EA gave us our moneys worth with the townies! And as always, I will give them my own little personal tweaks and updates. :D

I technically already started with the Van Goulds but it is my goal to get through the entire town for you all. :)

With less time to play, I felt like exploring the townies of Moonlight Falls. First stop, I had to see who lives in this house:

Turns out, it is the Van Goulds, the oldest vampires in Moonlight Falls. I had to give Ayden a mini makeover. His kids will be next!

The Van Goulds go back hundreds of years to the very first days of Moonlight Falls. Of course, for a vampire family that’s just a single generation! Ayden Van Gould, the current patriarch, claims to have had a hand in the actual founding of the town – a claim which is hotly disputed by his rivals, the Wolff family. Can the Van Gould’s secure their place as the Moonlight Falls founders, or will the Wolffs rise up and claw it away from them?

Once on the verge of living on the streets, the hippie Ivy family now lives the “trustifarian” lifestyle after Rainflower inherited a fortune from a long-lost great-aunt. No longer bound by the shackles of a budget, this family can have anything they’d like, except they don’t know what they want! Will the influx of Simoleons be a curse for the Ivy family?

Lookit this gorgeous house! EA’s version of a hippy family. heh It is funny because they made the daughter a computer wiz couch potato. :p

As his name suggests, Gator Wolff has the tenacity of an alligator, the temper of a wolf, and the self-control of neither. Erica admits her youngest might be “a little rowdy” but aren’t all boys at that age? Probably, but then again most parents are used to the Terrible Twos ending after age two. Most of Moonlight Falls believes he was literally raised by wolves! With Gator’s unique personality, he’s bound to lead an exciting life and become famous for his stunts.

Okay, it is officially, werewolf toddlers are the cutest!

Gladsten isn’t a werewolf, but he kind of looks like one. And he’s just as strong, virile and irresistible. He feels most at home on a long hike in the woods with fishing pole in hand, off to catch some yummy fish. He’s not much of a cook though… so his catch of the day usually ends up as the charcoal of the day! Gladsten has some trouble settling down too. What might be a promising relationship usually ends before it gets started due to one superficial reason or another. The most recent casualty was Marigold Maldano, who burnt a big, beautiful salmon.  

This is the hairiest EA sim I have ever seen! He reminds me of a lumber jack, all burly and woodsy. I love his house, le classic trailer home!

A Vampire who loves pink, pop, and lots of it, Emelie missed the memo that encouraged all vampires to embrace a gothic lifestyle. Struggling to accept the vampire lifestyle, Emelie loves a good salad and spending time in the sun. She also finds cuddly and furry animals to be the cutest things in the world! And while her father assumes that the most controversial thing about his bubbly young daughter is her choice in colors, he would never suspect that young Emelie secretly has an unwavering crush on one Waylon Wolff.

This is the last of the Van Gould household. Emelie is basically Alice Cullen, perky and sweet. Though she and Tristan look like they are contemplating eating the bus driver!

Next our on meet and greet in Moonlight Falls is the Durwood family.

On the outside, the Durwoods would make others jealous with their nice house, two adorable children, and a father with a great job. However, all is not what it seems between a mother in-law who disapproves of her daughter’s husband and two kids who always get what they want. Can the Durwoods learn to live together or will the family spiral out of control?

This is EA’s second attempt at recreating the cast from Bewitched! If you recall, there is a similar family in Lucky Palms. I have to say, they got it much closer this time! More pictures to come!

Welcome to Hogwarts! I mean Moonlight Falls! This is Mr and Mrs. MacDuff.  Flint  is a witch who used to love playing pranks until he met a muggle named Joanie. “One day, he cast a spell and accidentally set off fire sprinklers in an apartment building, but his bad magic turned to good fortune when he met a soaking-wet young lady named Joanie” How cute it that?

I so see the Weasleys in this family. They have five kids….the oldest boys are twins….Flint works in politics…etc etc…more coming up in our next issue of MF Meet and Greet!

Their house is wonderful, cozy,old and filled with lots of character.

Another gorgeous house in Moonlight Falls. This time, we find ourselves meeting the Crumplebottom sisters. Oh what a trio these ladies are!

More pictures to follow I promise, but I just wanted to point out one thing I have noticed as I got through each household in Moonlight Falls. For whatever reason, I would say that 80% of all the townies are made with base-game clothing and hair. 

The Crumplebottom sisters are all witches and there was so much potential for EA to use all the amazing new supernatural clothing/hair that came with Sims Supernatural but all three sisters were dressed pretty much like this:

This is Belinda by the way. heh Anyway, I took my time making over the Crumplebottom sisters because I felt they deserved it. More pictures coming later today.

If a pack of Wolffs have a black sheep, Waylon is it. While the other Wolff children are quick to grab a toy and play “How Hard Can I Throw the Toy?” Waylon is much happier sitting quietly at his computer to research the latest trends in high society. Being adept in the latest Sim technology and having a knack for getting an A+ on tests, his teachers can hardly believe he’s one of the Wolff clan. Could this departure from the rest of his family be related to his secret crush on Emelie Van Gould?

Poor Waylon, the oldest of the Wolff children, much is expected of him, so every time he is in his wolf form, both his parents spam him with “practice fighting”.
