Invitation to a Special Party
« on: July 20, 2011, 09:56:45 PM »
Greetings, dear friends!  Next month our wonderful Forum celebrates its second birthday.  I wanted to invite you all over to my place to lift a glass to the Forum and its fantastic members.  Wouldn't you all really like to come to Saskatchewan for a party?  Ok, maybe it's a bit far for some of you.  So I propose that we send our Simmy Selves to the party to represent us.  If you're interested, create a Sim version of yourself and post a screenshot in this thread.  Carl's first post welcoming people to the Forum was made on August 31, 2009, so I'm taking that as the Forum's official birthday.  On August 31, we'll see how many of us are here ready to party.

Here's my Sim-Me wearing her best pink Schipperke t-shirt (thanks to Gheez for the pattern) and waiting to welcome everyone to her living-room.  There's champagne and lemonade to drink, and look - I even baked cupcakes!  Ok, I didn't bake them - I bought them.  (That means they're safe to eat.  ;D )  The green Schipperke panel on the wall is standing in for a quilt that I couldn't replicate and for my Schips who won't be able to put in an appearance until after Pets is released.  Other than that, the room and I are as close to the real thing as I could get.

What a cute idea! I'd love to join in  ;D. What expansion and stuff packs do you have? My simself has store hair ("Just Divine"), would that be OK?

I was thinking we'd just all post our own pictures here, so people could use whatever items they have from expansion or stuff packs or the store.  Given the game restrictions on household size and party invitation lists, I don't think our Simmy Selves could actually all get together, unless there aren't that many people interested.  But we can be together here in this thread.

So we post a picture of ourselves welcoming other members into our home, like you did? I can do that. :)

The funny thing is that I actually have a sim-self already made.  I used it for my avatar on the official forums.  I'll have to dig him (me) up and take a screenshot.

Okay, here we go:



Hi all, welcome to my humble abode! And by "humble abode", I mean the room the university gave me. Don't mind the clutter, have a seat! Try not to bump the shelves, they're not very stable. Would you like a drink? It's the only thing in the fridge after all, ha ha ha! What? No, I don't have any nectar, the stuff you get 'round here tastes like engine oil and would make you blind after a couple of glasses. No music either, I'm afraid, but the neighbours get back from class soon and they'll pump theirs up loud enough to hear all the way from the campus! You do like Justin Beiber, right? No? Well, you go tell them to turn it down then, they don't listen to me any more.

Huh? Yeah, of course there's gonna be things to do tonight, do I look like a bad host to you? We could... uh, talk Sims! Yeah! We can all gush about how much we love the Sims, now there's something we can only do face-to-face! Or we could go down to the common room and watch TV, although the football's on tonight so it might be booked out. Or we could go down to the tavern, but I'd rather not; I think there's a student party there tonight so it might be a bit wild. Hey, don't look disappointed! You're lucky you've got a spot in my room, most of us will have to stand out in the corridor once it gets crowded. It's Lights Out at 10:30 and the walls are pretty thin, so no talking out there. Pringle?

I don't have pictures of him in a room, so you'll have to settle for CAS pictures for now.


Oops. This picture isn't accurate. My hair is brown and my nose is bigger than that.

Don't stand on my PS2! Hey, that's a rental! Noooo, that's my good computer! Hi, my name is Seabody, I'm your host for this evening. Tonight, it'll be calm until 11PM when the house is asleep. After that, I'll crank the volume up to 24.6!
Hey, you! Pass me some Coke! *guzzle* Ah, good stuff. Right, who likes Matrix? There's a PS2 with Path of Neo playing, go knock yourselves out. The rest of the house is out of bounds until Matrix has been beaten.
Who wants Peanuts!?

My favorite thread on the site!  Will absolutely be reading it as more people contribute, and I will add my Simself soon.

I'll see if I can create a sim-self and will post later. A very fun idea for a thread. :)

I will make one and myself soon. :) Although, it won't be very accurate: I am horrible at making simselfs, lol.

Yes!  The party is beginning!  I can't wait to see everyone's Sim Selves.  I feel like I'm actually getting a chance to meet people here.  I'm so glad you like the idea.

Would it be okay to maybe attach a file of your simself for download to your post?

It would be cool if we did that because we could try and get them all in a party, merging 8 of them together in a household, inviting another ten to the party as guests and then using invite over to get as many people there as possible. It`d be quite funny to see!

I`ll be disappointed when you look nothing like Seth Rogen as I have always assumed, Carl. ;)

Will try and make a simself this weekend.  I have never really done that, so should be interesting.  That is a good idea, to download all of us and put us in a room together. :)

I'm afraid it's just a CAS shot for me.





As my clothing is actually really variable, this is as close as I could get to what I wore when I went to a concert last night.

The glasses aren't right, though.

But, come on in, pull up a seat, don't mind the absurd heat!  There are cookies in the cookie box, iced tea in the fridge, and we can stick some movies in the PlayStation.  Lord of the Rings, or Star Wars?  We can stick some music on -- concrete walls mean that sound doesn't carry to our neighbors.
I hope you don't mind cats, though, since you'll likely get sucked up to.

It took me an hour to make this girl, but she's my best sim-me yet and in a passable representation on my room, and she's ready to attend the party of the year. :)
