(I changed my top. Just thought I’d take pics before I did haha)

I wanted to show the sim I made to test some stuff in TS4. Her name is Flurry Flashlight and I really like her, so I’ll probably try a berry pastel rainbowcy with her! But I’m not going to post it on here, because I don’t play this game often and whenever I do, it’s just for relax and fun (or out of boredom, let’s be honest :D). So, in case I post something with her in the future, it will be just important updates from her life from time to time, not long queues capturing her every move.

So, Flurry is a devoted art lover and dreams of selling her masterpieces. She’s a trans girl who really wanted a fresh start away from home, and once she found an apartment in San Myshuno she fell in love with the big city, knowing it’s exactly the life she always dreamed of. Is her creator going to find time for playing she going to find true love in this big bustle? We’ll see.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! 💖👭

TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WOLRD! My mother… the one who’s been there for me since day one.😭 I know I wasn’t the most grateful daughter when I was younger and I’m so sorry for every bad decision I’ve taken. Even if I rebelled against you, you were still there trying to help me overcome obstacles and giving me advice, preparing me for life and I wish I could go back in time to change my attitude and my form of thinking. Now that I’m a young woman, I thank you with all my heart for all the tools you’ve given me to move forward, thank you for being there when I was feeling alone, thank you for being the shoulder to cry on, the voice of wisdom. I can’t thank you enough, you’re the most beautiful and amazing mother, I wouldn’t want any other. ❤️ And even tho I’m in NY and you’re back home in NC, I’m glad I got the chance to catch up with you and hang out on FaceTime with you. I love you mom 💕 and to the rest of the lovely mothers all around the world, hope you had a lovely MOTHERS DAY!🎊🎉

#1 Hey Kosmo! I am a big fan of your sims. I don’t have tumblr, but have been following you for several years now. I need some advice girl. I have been using Ephemera’s Natural tan + skin to make some grey-scale dark-skinned sims. They look great in CAS. However when out of CAS, I can literally see none of the details I’ve worked so hard on. What is going on?!? Is this game lighting issue or a skin issue? I’m thinking maybe this skin has too low of a contrast.

Ello Nonny! First of all I want to say thank you for following this Trash Sims Blog of mine lol 💕 Finding grey-scale dark skin is really hard and its easier to just lower the color saturation in GIMP/PS. Coming out of CAS, you have to make sure dark skin has a decent enough lighting because EA sucks at lighting dark things in The Sims games. It also helps to have your detail settings on high and have an HQ mod. Second, Sorry this took so long to answer. I ended up being rather busy the past few days but this post you made has just inspired me to do something of a general WCIF for Black Sims CAS CC basics (stuff that isn’t just hair). Specifically for Dark Skinned sims because its hard to find and I get a lot of questions about it. So without further ado:

Kosmo’s Genereal CC for Making Dark Skinned Sims:

First is Skins. Skins are usually what help shape and make a sim. That definitely is true for dark skinned sims. These are some of the skins that get dark and keep their detail or are made specifically to work for dark skinned sims that I keep in my game.

Skins

Next up is makeup that I think helps when making dark-skinned or just ethnic sims in general since Black people have the widest variety of facial features. Things like Nose masks can help give your sim’s nose new shape if sliders aren’t cooperating with you. And face highlighters are essential when it comes to dark skinned sims because without them, their face lack the natural looking shines and reflections that appear on them in real life. They’ll look flat and monotone in color which is just plain weird honestly. I also listed my favorite lipsticks that can get dark enough to match dark skinned sims.

Makeup

A Few Slider Suggestions ^_^ I HIGHLY SUGGEST just going through OneEuroMutt’s Sliders in general. They have a lot of them and they’re very useful for sim making diversity

Sliders

I hope this helps you guys some and I might add on to the list as I’m constantly discovering better ways to create and tweak my sims lol 💕 Sorry for any typos, I’ll fix them as I see them.
