There’ve been quite a few create-a-sim challenges floating around tumblr lately, but I wasn’t really connecting with any of the prompts, so I decided to make my own! 

RULES & GUIDELINES

- May only use ONE sim. Download someone from the gallery, create your own, use an EA townie, whatever. Make sure you’re 100% pleased though because you’ll be stuck with them till the end!

- CAN NOT change Sim’s genetics, body shape, etc. (Hair, contacts and such are free game, but try not to alter anything that couldn’t be easily changed irl.)

- I’d appreciate it if you included a link back to this post. Thanks!

- Since this was inspired by the style of lookbooks, try to include each outfit’s corresponding CC links when applicable. Not only is this super helpful for fellow simmers, it will also save you from having to answer tons of WCIFs.

- Get creative! Take your screenshots right from CAS, pose your Sim in a parallel in-game setting, or PhotoShop your own backdrop. The choice is yours!

- I tried to make each category as gender neutral as possible, so feel free to interpret each prompt however you see fit! Just make sure to stick to the rules (or not, it’s just a game) and have fun!

Sexism in the household (in 2014)

Currently staying with my boyfriend for a little while before i go back to uni. My parents came round to visit us today, my parents all looked at me for any sign of mess. I even said to my boyfriend ‘you do realize im gonna be hearing about any mess they see later’, and sure enough i did. I was told that i was the 'lady of the house’ while my boyfriends mother was gone, that his family members are gonna judge me on how well I keep HIS house, that even though its his house i have to do most of the cleaning. When i told them that the dishes in the sink were my boyfriends who had had his dinner after id gone to bed i was told that i should have gotten up earlier to clean up after his mess. God forbid a grown man clean his own stuff. Im sick of all this 'you have a vagina = you need to do all the cleaning’ bullshit. My ovaries do not wash dishes. My period does not sweep the house. My vagina does not and should not dictate rolls and responsibilities in a household. Ironically when i mentioned in passing how i had mowed the lawn the day before and had just taken the bins about (traditionally both 'mens’ jobs) they didn’t say a word. Its beyond frustrating to work around a house, which isnt even yours i might add, work to keep it clean, along with all the other shit going on in your life, and then have someone say in more ways than one, not exactly subtly, that its not good enough, AND that all the responsibility for the home being up to par (the home which TWO people live in) all lies on my shoulders, and my shoulders alone. They continued by comparing me to my sister, and saying that my boyfriends nan (who they’ve never met but are certain would agree with them) would judge me based on my cleaning the house; the fact that im a good person who she’s met many times and im a good partner to her grandson apparently means nothing, my housekeeping skills are really what matters here.


A few hours after this my mother also asked when she was gonna see 'a ring on my finger’. If everyone could please stop trying to squeeze me into the step-ford wife roll that i don’t wanna be in and was NOT born to play, that would be great.

(Not gonna lie, I had to look up what this was.) A very casual, yet colorful, look. I don’t know who’s getting married, but Winston is ready in case it takes place on a beach or somewhere tropical.

25 DAY LOOKBOOK CHALLENGE: DAY 02 - BUSINESS PRESENTATION

It’s day two!! Time for a professional-ish business look. Winston doesn’t really take many things seriously and will usually wear as comfy clothes as possible. Thus, he decided to go without a tie and just stick to some simple slacks, a nice belt, and a slightly unbuttoned button-up.
