I love Beata! When I'm playing a Stylist I usually try to improve the less-than-amazing fashion sense of Sims . . . but now I am sorely tempted to make an account just for an insane stylist to make a few memories!

Beata is brilliant!
Not sure if she knows that she can change the colour of her career outfits in CAS.
I love her take on charisma. She'll super max that in no time at all! :)

She knows, she just prefers using her private wardrobe, or the stylist one when not hideous.

Chapter 197: Oops!
« Reply #619 on: November 15, 2012, 07:25:01 PM »
Mom and dad have been spending a lot of time down at the beach. Mom says she want's as much time as possible with dad, and since I'm busy with work I let her have my days too.

Greta: I can't believe you want to spend your time with an old woman like me.
Cary: Fishing for compliments again?
Greta: Always.



Cary: Come a little bit closer...


Greta: I love you.


Cary: I love you too.
Greta: You'll wait for me?
Cary: Always.



I was busy with my project. Sure, I might have neglected my job a bit (but I styled so many other clients that I still got promoted) but if that's what it takes to make Sunset Valley a more colorful and fashion forward kind of town, I'm willing to pay the price.

Sometimes my client couldn't care less about the end result.



Sometimes they were very happy.


After a hard day reviving the dull closets and wardrobes of the population I needed some clean fun in order to recharge my batteries.


Now, I don't want you to think I was so focused on my work on the pirate project that I neglected the fashion needs of the unpiratable groups in town.

I always made sure to offer fashion advice and good deals on makeovers for any elders I encountered. Sure, fashion is a bit more challenging when you become an elder, but it's still possible to look chic, you don't have to give up and just walk around in sweatpants all the time. 



Every woman regardless of age deserves to feel beautiful...


...even if it's only for a short while.


Oops! I didn't mean that short a time!


Anyway, my days were busy with styling, and my evenings were busy with keeping my friendships up. Parties are great places to pick up the latest gossip. Who's going to which stylist? Who had a fashion malfunction? Who's just become a YA eligible for some pirate wear?


And if some sims would seek me out for some fashion tips and styling? Well, it just goes with the territory.


I just wonder what the grandmas have been up to. Whaaa....skinny dipping?! When the YA is away the elders go wild.

Chapter 198: Stalking the prey
« Reply #620 on: November 15, 2012, 08:16:57 PM »
New week and new clothes, I think I like these. Sure, they aren't really colorful enough, but they work kind of like camouflage, they let me sneak up on my prey.


Speaking or prey, there's a Simfest today, and that's the perfect hunting ground...


Lady something or other: What have you done to me! You promised I'd look thin if I had a make over!
Beata: No, I said no one would say you looked "round" anymore.
Lady SorO: Now they're just going to call me the green giant!
Beata: Calm down, no one messes with a pirate. You'll be fine.



I don't understand why so many of my clients are unhappy about the direction i take my design. At least some of them appreciate it.


Proprietor: Change me back! I can't work like this!


Beata: You look fine. Now get me a drink.
Proprietor: I think I hate you.



I tried not to take all this criticism to heart, but I didn't feel so good. Why don't people understand my vision?

I spent the next few days at home doing some fashion consulting with more positive results.



I also worked a lot on my sketches.


And spent time on the party scene.


Grandma J finally had Vizard of Vine register, she'd only stomped and bottled around 1950 bunches of grapes, so it wasn't quite five times as many as was required. She celebrated by going to Port-A-Party Mini warehouse where she met an adult I hadn't already preformed a makeover on.


This gave me an idea, and the next day I sent all the grandmas and mom out on the town. This not only gave me peace and quite at home, so that I could focus on my sketching, but also let them ferret out those who'd avoided me so far.


And once I had their number? I threw a party of course!

Hartley: What have you done to me?
Beata: You are now a pirate, one of my colorful creations, dance and me happy.
Hartley: I don't want to dance, I'm not happy!
Beata: I can also make you bald.
Hartley: I'm happy, I'm happy. Look everyone, I'm so happy!



As you can see from this picture this new technique had given me a lot more to work with.


Unfortunately, not even I am unfallable. I had my first fashion missfunction.

Leah: You promised me pirate, not tragic clown!
Beata: So, sorry. Do over?



Leah: I don't know, this was pretty bad.
Beata: Sure, but now it can only get better. Come on!
Leah: All right, but this in your last shot.



Beata: Happy now?
Leah: Not really, I wanted hot pink.
Beata: That's my signature color, some things I just can't share, even with one of my best friends.



I'll leave you for now with some of my greatest hits. (Bottom left was a knock out! I've gotta give more pirates beards!)

heh, the title of the first update made me think Black Ops, not Oops  ;D
That one male makeover in the first collage of the second chapter looks like a good look for Artie haha
I love all of Beata's pirate makeovers, they're so fun.  :)

It was nice to see Greta and Cary at the beach.
"Every woman deserves to feel beautitful even if it is for a short time." I shouldn't have laughed, but it was just too funny.
Beata works very hard to please her clients. Adding to someone's wardrobe (if possible) is always better received than changing or replacing what they already have.
Fun updates! :)

I didn't catch that, I work hard on the spelling, but sometimes I guess the Swedish just sneaks in.

Lot's of things happened today.

I installed Seasons and found out that Beata has an aging bug. I'll sort it out, but I'm just enjoying myself with the game right now.

Why, oh why, did I get seasons? Now I'll never finish this before I move. ::)

I read about your predicament in the ID thread. Rica's solution sounds solid. Beata will be alright.
And I think, you more than deserve some playtime with your new EP. Have fun!  :)

Yipes! That is a little disconcerting about that bug! I do hope that it all works out.

Enjoy Seasons in the meantime. :)
