Sims Sunday: Bloody Sims Sunday

Even though Zardoz has the “Family Oriented” trait, he hadn’t shown any sign of wanting to settle down and make babies. He hadn’t even really become smitten with anyone. I was starting to despair.

He was getting awfully famous, though. Here, a complete stranger snaps his picture on the sidewalk.

Alas, just minutes later, someone spread a terrible rumor about him. Zardoz was completely mortified! Everyone that he passed started gossiping about him. Check out the dude on the bench in the background, talking about Zardoz’s humiliation.


sims sunday

Seemingly in response, he started wanting to do more things at home. I bought him a professional bar, and let him practice making drinks out on his patio.


sims sunday

He also started wanting to invite people over, which was new. First we invited over the famous vampire Matthew Hamming.


sims sunday

Although he is a five-star celebrity, it looks like he works at Starbucks. (I was glad when he changed into his everyday wear, which was more vampire-y.)

I had them make out for a while on the couch. Zardoz wasn’t impressed, and neither was Hamming. So that was kind of a failure all around.


sims sunday

Then I realized that Zardoz only had a few days left before he turned Elderly. Fed up with waiting for Zardoz to find a wife and want children, and afraid we would run out of time, I made him ask Hamming to be turned into a vampire.

With the swirly red effect and the bats and all!


sims sunday

It takes three days to become a vampire after you get bitten. While he waits for the chagne to finish, Zardoz sleeps, and dreams of bats.


sims sunday

Finally the change is complete! He develops the unusually bright eyes, prominent teeth, and “blemish” on his throat.


sims sunday

Among other things, when you’re a vampire you can “Hunt.” This seems to mean scanning the area for other Sims, who light up for you. Which… okay. Whatever.

Sims 3 vampires have to drink blood. Luckily, their refrigerators are automatically stocked with an endless supply of plasma packs. (Which is to say, vampire juice boxes.)


sims sunday

I decided that, apropos of his new life, he should get a makeover. I was only going to give him a little tweak, I swear! Next thing you know, I had changed his hair, hair color, facial hair, and wardrobe.


sims sunday

One down side to vampire life is that you get unhappy if you leave home during the daytime. Zardoz also has the super-sleep lifetime reward, which means that he only needs to sleep for a few hours.

Long story short, he spends a lot of time watching TV and playing darts while he waits for sundown.


sims sunday

But once the sun goes down, awww yeah! Please allow me to present his new Formalwear outfit.


sims sunday

IS THAT THE GREATEST THING EVER OR WHAT. Technically it’s a Father Christmas outfit, which you can download from the official Sims 3 Store for free. But come on. It’s totally pimp!


sims sunday

It was here, at a fancy party at Hamming’s house, where he met an intriguing vampire lass named Elvira Slayer.


sims sunday

Finally, the Smitten Cascade happened! It took a long time for Zardoz to find his shmoopy. But the instant he started talking to Elvira, he started having one Elvira-related wish after another. By the next day, he was proposing marriage.

I guess she was impressed by his Mac Daddy Red Velvet Robe With Gold And Ermine Trim, because she said “Yes”!


sims sunday

They celebrated after the proposal with a little baby-making.


sims sunday

The next night, they were wed at the dive bar next door.


sims sunday

The ceremony didn’t go very smoothly, though. First they were interrupted because Elvira had to go toss her cookies.


sims sunday

Then they were interrupted by a woman who asked for Zardoz’s autograph. (Which made Elvira very Not Happy.)


sims sunday

How much do you love Elvira’s maternity outfit?


sims sunday

Welcome to the world, Baby Aaron!


sims sunday

I named him after the original founder of the Alphabetti line. Seems appropriate, somehow.
