Hello everyone! I recently got my hands on the Create a Sim demo, so I started creating a bunch of Disney-inspired sims. Then I thought “If I can make Disney-inspired sims why don’t I make book inspired sims?”. So here I am with this post, where I’ll show you how I created Clary and Jace from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare!
So, this is a close up of Clary. Overall, I’m happy with how she looks even though the hair isn’t the best. Unfortunately, it was the best choice for a curly hair. I’m very pleased with how her eyes turned out: they’re just the right size and the color is perfect.
As for the body, since we can’t change sims’ hight, I could only make her skinny to represent her petite body. For her everyday outfits I decided to create two: a “Mundane-styled” one and a more “Shadowhunter-looking” one. For the Mundane outfit I decided to just give her jeans and a plain sweater, with a pop of color in those red sneakers.
Her Shadowhunter outfit is plain black. Since there’s not an option for black skinny jeans I gave her black leggings, with a black leather jacket and black boots. Since she has the jacket on you can’t see it, but to represent runes I gave her an arm tattoo.
In terms of traits/aspiration I gave her the painting aspiration since she’s so artistic. For the same reason, I gave her the creative and art lover traits and to mix it up a bit I also gave her the bro trait.
Moving on to Jace…
I’m very pleased with how his face turned out, a bit less with his outfits and traits/aspiration.
His face is pretty much the way I pictured it while reading the book. I wasn’t sure about the hair color, I thought that maybe it should have been a bit more yellow toned but in the end I chose this color and I think it really suits him.
His outfit’s a bit boring, but he’s a full time Shadowhunter, so I didn’t really know what clothes to put him in. Again, to represent the runes, I gave him the arm tattoo.
One thing that bothers me are his aspiration and his traits. The aspiration I gave him is the sports one. I didn’t feel like it suited him well, but I think his aspiration would be to be an amazing Nephilim, and the sports aspiration is the closest one. His traits are: self-assured (which I know is not really accurate, but what can I do?), music lover and romantic. I wasn’t sure if I was going to give him the romantic or the hot-headed trait. In the end I chose the romantic one just to balance a bit his self-assured trait.
