CAS Contests 2014: 05 - Gold Rush!

The Situation:
Sims are agog with the news!  The Northwest is finally opening up!  The Simverse is rife with rumours of discoveries of rich gold deposits.  Sims everywhere are stocking up on supplies and packing their suitcases, heading North in hopes of making their fortunes!


Your Task:
Your task is to design a two-character household to take part in the great northern gold rush.  One of your characters must be a Sim aged YA to Elder and can be any life state.  The second character can be a Sim (of any age and life state) or an animal companion, whichever you wish.  You can set the relationship between the characters to whatever you wish - a married couple, roommates, parent and child, etc.  Will your characters be a Sim and his/her hunting dog, hoping to strike it rich?  Dance-hall girls?  Constables with the RCMP?  Schoolmarms?  You decide.  You are allowed the usual 10 screenshots for your entry thread, and you can post one screenshot in this thread.  As always, custom content is not allowed.  Content from any EP or SP is allowed, as well as free store items.

Beatrice and Bosso Rodriquez

Beatrice has never fit in anywhere and that's exactly the way she likes it. With parents from opposite sides of the border and adventure in her blood she's been travelling back and forth across the countryside with her trusty mule for years. When she isn't tending to Bosso or mapping the area she's in, Beatrice enjoys trading for local wares and planning out her and Bosso's next great adventure.

And we have a winner!  Congratulations to ladybug53 for The Gold Nugget, yet another win to add to her impressive record.  :)

It was a very close contest this time, with the remaining 3 entries all placing second.  Which is a good indication that all the entries were very strong and well-presented.  So I think everyone deserves congratulations for your entries.  I tried to create a mountie, but had a lot of trouble coming up with a reasonable facsimile of the mountie uniform so didn't enter.  And seeing the calibre of the entries in the contest, I think I'm glad I didn't bother with mine - it would have been left in the dust.

This thread is now open for comments.  Please remember to give feedback only if it is requested, and to keep your comments positive and constructive.

Well deserved win.  I really liked ALL the entries this time.  Too bad I didn't finish Clementine in time but you may see her in a story soon.  Congrats to ladybug and all.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!
