PostSubject: GRAY GARDENS   Tue Sep 24, 2013 12:41 pm

COMING SOON . .


In anticipation for MH I wanted to do somewhat of a more dark character  writig  and came up with the Bovasil twins, Simian and Vimian.  Born with a genetic disorder that caused their hair to premature gray at a early age; coupled with the loss of their parent in a horrible accident, or at least that's what they were told.  They are identical twins with two exceptions; the beauty mark location on their faces and their personalities.  Simi and Vimi (nick names) are as different as day and night, good and bad.  thinkin 

Simi is the bad one, she's always getting into trouble and Vimi was always there to get her out.  Simi hated wanting for things she could not afford while growing up.  She's under the impression that she's meant, no deserves to have the finer things in life and by hook or by crook and aims to do that!  She knows her sister disapproves of her flirty ways, but she doesn't care and even displays her bad habits in front of her sometimes to shut her up.  Her main goal life is find the richest man she can and woo him into marriage.  Believe when I tell you she has all the traits to do just that.  No more of this non-existent life for her.




Vimi is more your down to earth type, in spite of all the negativity she gets from her twin about what a drab life she has, always communing with mother nature and slaving over a hot stove.  Vimi just ignores her rants, and she occasionally reminds her that it's her garden that put food on the table and a roof over their heads, which puts Simi in check, but it only for a little while. Vimi enjoys the simple things in life, being outside in her garden and trying out new recipes in the kitchen.  It makes her happy and that's all she needs or wants out of life.  Somehow it only last for a certain amount of time before her sister manages to muck it all up.  She grown tired of moving from town to town because of Simi's bad habits; and this last one she dare not mention.  lipssealed   Vimi has always been there for her sister through thick and then but this is the last time.  She's decide; if they have to go their separate ways then so be it.  Vimi wants just a little piece of land the grow her garden, and maybe find a little bit happiness she knows she's earned.


My plan it to place them in MH (together/separate haven't decided yet)  but I'm curious to see if Simi will go after Wheeler - the Hobo Millionaire.  As for Vimi let's hope she meets someone who appreciates her, weird or not, but will truly love her.

Well that's all for now, I did save to bin in case I want to go back and change something.  I don't remember if there are any new significant new traits in MH, which is why I'm waiting before I upload to the exchange.  Hope you enjoyed the little tid bits of information.  If I do any game play for this duo I will put it under (Gray Gardens)  flower

Now if Thursday will hurry up and get here already!!  Devil

Well the first day was interesting, after about 4hrs (game time) Vimi moved out and started her own shop "Vimi's Edibles"  she found a house that has a shop on the lower level and living quarters above it.  Unfortunately it is across from City hall and there were protesters all day yelling, not good for business for her.  You will see some of my favorites.  



I'm not sure how this is going to go for Simi, after reading Wheeler's bio I think she's in for a bit of surprise.  He's rich alright, but cheap  Laughing 

Had one little glitch where two people got stuck together.


After causing a ruckus all day some decided to check out the shop -  after closing hrs and had the nerve to be mad I might add.



The red sign means closed, can't they read?  She only made one sale that day.



One strange thing kept happening though.  She did hire a sales clerk to tend the register and they show up immediately, but when the person steps away from the register and starts browsing another clerk pops in with a message saying (person's name) couldn't make it today so (person) is here instead.  This happened about four times.

Okay closing shop, tune in later for more updates.

Day 2 . . .

After finding an house I wanted in MH I chose the cafe and remodeled it to set up Vimi's shop.  The world is so dark i felt I'd go blind try to edit it so I moved it to one of my build worlds.  Basically what I did was went through B/B mode and found the higher price items that looked like food and put them on pedestals.  This is Vimi's Vittles



Shop


Living Quarters

The only problem is that when I placed it in MH it's as if there is a giant spotlight on it now.  eeek   No problem trying to find my house now.  I even tried darkening the grass which did a little but you can see sunlight on the house, but only on mine  thinkin   Twilight Zone



And if there is no sun, why is she using a Sunbrella?  lol! 


Upon hiring a sales clerk the first one showed up in swiming trunks, I think he's a vampire


and the second one . .  At least they were both buff  Laughing 


Few pics of Vimi checking out the goods




Vimi went to visit her sis in her new digs and of course it was raining and she wants to stand outside and chat Clearly she want to go home. She finally got her inside and the first thing she suggest is an extreme water ballon fight.  Are you kidding me!  

Vimi's thinking she wish this rain would stop already

After declining, she then goes outside to splash in the puddles and silly loving sis follows her.


The next day Vimi decided to check out the festival along with a few others that were suckered into to paying $200 for no festival


The guy the first thing he did was hit Vimi with water balloon, it happened so fast I couldn't catch a pic.


And this Carter girl is getting on Vimi's nerves with the daredevil stuff  (eating dirt) I think not! and she clearly told her so with that stand she gave her.  


She did see Olive and Nervous heading out for a walk.  Can't miss these two walking down the street.


Disappointed in the festival, hoping to see some strange things happen she decided of all thing to check out Ghastly  Cemetary  No  (bad idea) I thought to myself it's full of dead people!  She really liked the statue.


One would think that would be enough, but no . . . she had to go check out the catacombs in the Moselium, again i'm thinking very bad idea.  She found a seed and a jewel stone and then the unthinkable happened  eeek   eeek   This is what you look like after being mauled by a bear in the catacombs.  


On that note I'll end with what she saw when she just happened to look up at the sky (Waxing cresent moon) That explains everything!  lolgal



Tomorrow we'll pay Simi a visit and see what kind of trouble she get's into. It has been a Gray Gardens day!

Silly me, went in on the same page I posted the   check   on so I had to cut and past it here.

UPDATE:  I did have some screenshots saved from Day 3 of Simi, I warn you it's a long one, so here we go . .

One problem I had with Simi was she was alway in the mirror, had to take them out so she would do something else!



Like I said in True Grit post aliens love my sims.  These were before I even created Samantha Hill 

Alien visit Vimi's house






For reason the she's keeps throwing her mail on the ground.  have to check into that one.


Simi  seems to cause trouble where ever she goes, I think that must be his wife (Odessa Winchester) in the background, she was screaming and pointing at the air.  It was just a friendly introduction. . .


Which quickly turned unfriendly!

Then friendly again

back to unfriendly, these two can't seem to make up their minds . . Friends or Enemies?


Naturally she thinks he's hot!  Is Odessa clawing at her?  Uh oh might be a cat fight.  Laughing 






Simi does the daredevil dirt eat!


Simi found Odessa to be creepy


At  least someone knows how to have fun at the festival


Vimi is hoping to sneak past Simi before she sees her  ROFL 


Apparently Vimi doesn't like the devil in the blue dress (sorry couldn't resit the pun)


Here's and idea, loose the wings at night time, you stick out like a sore thumb . . .


I have no idea what this is about  Suspect 


Another enemy


Blue wants Dorothy's ruby red shoes!


Hey I might have pie on my face, but  I still like you blue and I may even get ya them shoes


I have more but I don't want to make this too long.   I will try to put up more in between doing the challenge.  Hope you enjoyed, as I was laughing trying to get these posted.  That Simi is some kinda character.

Thank you all so much, I must admit that I am having fun with Baville twins, especially Simi.  We continue with the sage where Vimi  is meeting her sis Simi at the library, and to her surprise she encounters the ghost of Jay Sales.  They spend a few moment chatting . . .




Jay seems taken with Vimi




Is he giving her some secrets to gardening?


Seems like someone forgot to pack a late night snack . .


No problem for her, as she whips up and apple to snack on, guess she must be a witch


Hmm... it seems another ghost encounter was more than Vimi could handle.


Vimi had an upsetting encounter with Marina Vasquez






OMG! she doing the eat dirt things as well.  What's wrong with these people in MH?


The picture says it all!


Hey they ride brooms in MH  Laughing 


Vimi met and chatted with a fairy at the festival


And as usual evil twin came along and started a water balloon fight!


Blue seems to be bugged out!  lolgal  (must find out her name, but I like calling her Blue)


They both had invites to the same Halloween party.  Vimi shows up as a hotdog (4 other hotdogs there as well  Ha HA )


While Simi shows up looking like Snow White!  WHY, she's the evil one.  confused



Trick or Treaters, why he stopped to do homework is beyond me.  Get the candy kid!


Hmmm, a three way thought perhaps?


Blue's on the prowl again . .


Looks like she found a dance partner and got dipped.


I wasn't sure why Vimi was going to the lake in the dead of winter, but suddenly she's in a swimsuit and wind surfing  eeek 
I didn't know that was possible.  She got a moodlet, a picture of a polar bear for braving the icy waters.  Who knew?

Great, fun update. I haven't had a Sim try the polar bear swim yet. I got close once when a childish Sim went to play in the ocean in the middle of winter.
