Sims Sunday: A proper wedding

First of all, a thank you to Faye who left a comment on the last Sims Sunday pointing out that the Into the Future expansion pack includes grass rugs which you can use indoors, and garden all year round. I started by building a nice little attached indoor gardening area.

Then I expanded to an enclosed rooftop deck.

I sent Summer on a date with Mortimer Goth. He was quite taken with her. In fact, he presented her with flowers about eight times in a row.

Sims Sunday

Dude, enough with the flowers.

Sims Sunday

His pants, though!

Seven grew into a teenager. I gave him a futuristic haircut, and a spiffy new sci-fi uniform.

Sims Sunday

Technically he should probably be the heir, but I like Summer’s hazel eyes.

Sims Sunday

Somewhere along the line the game was updated with a new Romantic option: the Dip Kiss.

Sims Sunday

He’s totally into her.

Sims Sunday

I staged a very romantic marriage proposal, and then some random Sim wandered into the shot and would not leave. Oh well.

Sims Sunday

You want to look good for your wedding, don’t you, Summer? Better work at it!

Sims Sunday

The wedding was held in the back yard. I pulled the old plywood wedding arch out of inventory and set it up, along with some cheap chairs for the guests.

And FOR ONCE I remembered to put the bride in a wedding gown with full hair and makeup before the event!

Sims Sunday

I feel bad about breaking up the famous Mortimer and Bella, but he’s mine now!

Sims Sunday

He is having a good time at this party.

Summer was stoked for the wedding cake.

Sims Sunday

It’s pink inside! Pink wedding cake. I love it.

Sims Sunday

After the wedding, it was time to get down to the business of making another heir.

Sims Sunday

Mom, can we talk about this later? I’m kinda busy.

Sims Sunday

Baby-making time!

Sims Sunday

The next day, I introduced Mortimer to the family beekeeping business.

Sims Sunday

I also forgot to change Summer out of her hair and makeup, so she ended up jogging in the full war paint.

Sims Sunday

That afternoon, I snapped this shot of all my Sims studying peacefully. It was a nice family moment.

Sims Sunday

Like so many nice family moments in Sims 3, this one was interrupted by a sudden death.

Sims Sunday

RIP Robin! You died as you lived: sitting around in your mangy old underwear.

    Why does Summer have a pink glowy thing hovering over her shoulder in bed? It it a glow cloud? OMG, did you more them to Night Vale???

    • Erika

      Ha! As awesome as that would be, it’s just a visual effect leaking in from the next room, where Seven set a prank on the bathroom sink.

      ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD, though.

  • It’s not a sim party unless someone dies and someone else pees on the floor. Or a random sim wanders into your shot. Same/same.

  • Slager

    I was wondering if someone had pranked the bed…

    Anyway, I wasn’t going to get the Future expansion (my computer can barely handle the game as it is) but… I’m sorely tempted

    If you choose the Sim’s formal wear first, and then go into the Looks>Makeup category (this is if you bring them into the full CAS; to do this the non-cheaty way, have the Sim change into formal wear then have it interact with a mirror), if you click on the little lock icon at the top right of the makeup category, you can set makeup for formal wear only, and not have to deal with the Sim wearing the same makeup for all the other outfit categories.

    You can also set up to three outfits for each category by having your Sim interact with the dresser, which is particularly useful if you don’t want to have to change the Sim’s formal wear from his/her wedding attire.

      My lock has never worked correctly, both for hair and makeup. I finally gave up even trying to get it to work. Half the time it doesn’t remember my change (across all outfits) and the other half the time it applies across all outfits. It is a good point, though, thanks for mentioning it!
