We need your help!
The Default Database is a growing and active resource for the Sims 2 community! But its current mods need help keeping it up and running. We all know life gets in the way of running communities and this one is no different…
The Database is looking for 1 to 2 new mods!
Requirements: TIME (2 hours or less a week at current submission rates), Photoshop (and knowledge of some basic tools), ability to communicate with the other mods at GoS, and an attention to detail.
Process: Send me (ZeroDark/ZeroGraphic) an application either via Tumblr PM or via Garden of Shadows PM. Include your screen name (Sims community name if different), why you’d like to be involved in the Default Database project, and any questions you have.
PLEASE REBLOG THIS!
Okay, so I just saw that I got tagged by aweeshie for the desktop meme about a week ago. I’ve already done the meme and haven’t changed my desktop since, but I loved the pics of tulips you had as your wallpaper, so I figured I’d post some pretty pictures of tulips instead :D
I took these back in April/May and they’re oversaturated as hell, ‘cause I’m still not used to my camera, but I still like how they came out.
Emma Watson talks to the UN.
She’s now getting threats and all manner of bullshit nastiness. Therefore, I propose that everyone should reblog this video until the Internet creaks with the strain, and then a couple more times to make the point, and tell everyone we know to watch it immediately.
Because that is how we do.

Haha thanks feydecay. I’m really glad to have him in my life. =] He’s my best friend and has been really supportive with everything (school, career, personal struggles).
Went out to shoot targets with my boyfriend yesterday and brought along my Canon EOS Rebel T5i that I picked up last week. Still learning the ropes and what not since I like to figure things out by playing around with it first. I had a really great time although my camera died half way into it.
I’m trying to pick up a hobby that isn’t computer centric, something that will get me out of the house more, something to get me out of this slump that’s lasted too long. I’m really excited to see where this hobby takes me. =]

(I love you, my little strawberry milkshake pop tart!)
WOO, face templates that have been in the works off and on for over a year, I shit you not. These are kind of a followers gift, in that there are close to 2500 of you (WHOA) and I feel as if gifts are in order to thank you guys for putting up with me!
Here is a gif of all the faces in BodyShop:
And HERE are large previews of the faces in game, with detailed credits and some notes on the features:
01Heart | 02Base | 03Erus | 04Emed | 05Cban | 06Cmas | 07Eafr | 08Easi | 09Cino | 10Este | 11Cmay | 12Eeas | 13Ecer | 14Cteu | 15Ceth | 16Eeng | 17Cara | 18Caus | 19Ccel | 20Cind | 21Cper | 22Cmed | 23Cpla | 24Cpol | 25Csla | 26Eelf | 27Etge | 28Alien
I should note, I couldn’t puzzle out what regions most of the templates were meant to represent, so my replacements aren’t intended to be an accurate reflection of any specific area or ethnicity. They’re pretty much just a grab-bag of features I like mashed together on various faces.
One thing I did try really hard to accomplish was minimizing the amount of game-influenced difference between ages and genders. Switching a face from F to M should not result in a thinner, sulkier mouth, hollower cheeks and smaller eyes across the board, that makes no sense. I could not, however, fix this hard-coded game glitch that (as far as I have seen) effects all replacement templates as well as the maxis default faces.
I THINK THAT’S EVERYTHING?? Let me know if I messed anything up. (I’m so full of painkillers right now that it is 99% likely that I have messed something up.)
edit: oh ok i did mess a couple things up in notes on the in-game previews. 25 should say that the mouth was edited with milkshape rather than the nose and 26 should say the sim’s name is moth, not moss.
having said that, here’s some clarity on a few things i’ve been asked:

Since ohbehave007 tagged all her followers, I decided to post my desktop too (it’s quite plain but I like it that way). =]
