If you go into the screen where you are choosing the colors for a particular outfit, (I always do shoes) then zoom out, the Sim will be centered and you can snap a shot.  If you're not zoomed out then it's not going to show the whole outfit since a screenshot only shows what you see on your screen.   I choose the shoes option so that I know it's zoomed out as much as possible generally and it's centered because I'm in the place where you would recolor if you needed to.

I was zoomed out all the way but when I was playing with the pictures in the collage, they wouldn't show the whole of the sim.

It might help to crop and resize the photos you want for the collage manually.

Airica: "Good Morning sunshine.  You ready to learn all your toddler skills?  Maybe pause every now and then to pose for Grandpa Aker?"
Adrasteia: -gurglecoo, grabs at Airica's hair-
Airica: "Ack hey.. none of that ok."


Airica: "Right now you are literally stinkin' cute.  Did you know that?"
Adrasteia: -rolls her eyes-
Airica: "I know it was a bad joke."


Adrasteia: "Now Now Now Now Now Now Now Now Now."
Airica: "Why did Artie teach you that word?  Why?  I'm coming, sweetie.  I can't make the food processor blur faster."



We interuppt the Toddler Games for a shot at my Large Gem collection.  If I'd stop being lazy, I'd probably be done by now. 


Airica: "Or as long as the old men in the family are really good.  You might even be able to supermax fishing."
Adrasteia: "Fishies!"
Airica: "Then again there's the new skill or nectar making, too."


Airica: "There you go, munchkin.  If I can walk backwards in heels, you can walk forward like a big girl."
Adrasteia: "Silly Mommy."
Airica: "I know.  I could take the time to switch to the outfit where I'm barefoot but where's the fun in that right?"
Adrasteia: "Right and Left."




Airica: "Wait.  Did I just see what I thought I saw?"
Aker: "It wasn't me."


Airica: "Do you ever feel bad for the guys with the little wings?  I mean do fairy chicks dig that or is it as laughable to them as it is to us?"


Airica: "Not having fun sweetie?"
Adrasteia: "Wanted to ride rocket."
Airica: "Oh I'm sorry sweetie.  Maybe when we get home. "
Adrasteia: "Birthday tomorrow."
Airica: "Yes it is and you'll get to ride the rocket before you blow out the candles.  You excited?"
Adrasteia: "Get presents?"
Airica: "Maybe.  I know we're going to recolor the last tent for you. "
Adrasteia: "I can sleep in tent like mommy?"
Airica: "Well thanks to my career being tougher than I realized, I rarely sleep but yes you'll get a tent like mommy's but in your color, green."
Adrasteia: "Yay!"
time passes..
Adrasteia: "Walk faster!"


Reka: "I heard the music.  Congratulations on the §4000 in royalties."
Airica: "Thank you.  I think.   Now to just keep going.  Only 6 more promotions to go."
Reka: "Why not just join journalism?"
Airica: "Because this is the way I want to do it!"
Reka: "So testy when you spend all night writing.  Going to bed?"
Airica: "No.  I promised Addy a rocket ride.  She's going to do that and then it's time for her cake."
Reka: "Aww is it really her birthday already?  I forgot to get her something."
Airica: "Stay away from my child.  You & that creepy, freaky, deaky doll thing."


Airica: "Addy.. it's time to get off the rocket."
Adrasteia: -croses arms, does the Grim face- "No."
Airica: "It's time to get off now.  Or no cake."
Adrasteia: "Fine!" -still making face-


Francisco: "Whoo I can't believe my daughter is going to be a child!"
Airica: "There you go baby girl.  Blow real hard.."
Amon: "Nice job Addy!"


Adrasteia: -standing in the only shade on the whole lot while attacked by sparkles-
Airica: "Oh don't cross your eyes hon."
Adrasteia: "Huh? Oh.  I was just watching that firefly try to land on my nose."
Airica: "Oh boy.  I think it's time for a makeover.  How about you?"
Adrasteia: -randomly rolls the Loves The Outdoors trait-  "Sure! Then maybe I can eat cake."
Airica: "of course.  You have the whole weekend to enjoy yourself then."
Adrasteia: "Wahoo!"

Oh Rica she's so adorable! I think she somehow managed to be even cuter as a child than as a toddler. I love her wardrobe.

Artie: "Adrasteia?"
Adrasteia: -comes out of reverie- "Yes sir?"
Artie: "What were you thinking child?"
Adrasteia: "That's it time to start planning."
Artie: "Start planning for what?"
Adrasteia: "To take over the world of course!"
Artie: "Oh we're already well on our way to doing that, sweetheart.  We did leave one small section just for you though."
Adrasteia: "Criminal element?  Police Force?  Local Military?"
Artie: "No.. that was me, Grandpa Aker and Pappy Apollo.  No.. we need you to handle the corporate end."
Adrasteia: "Corporate?!"
Artie: "Well yes while most of them are fairly corrupt without any help.  We thought that only the most special of us would be able to take the reins in such a manner that made sure the corruption was absolute."
Adrasteia: "Hmm. "
Artie: "Now what are you thinking?"
Adrasteia: "That I don't have any witch powers yet and you should probably be glad for that fact."
Artie: -chuckles- "Yes and you're out of candy which also makes me sad.  Come now.. I have something for you."


Francisco: "Is there any better way to spend a Friday night than with the hottest chick in all of Lunar Lakes?"
Airica: "Only Lunar Lakes?  You're losing your touch there, witchybutt."
Francisco: "You know what I meant.  Look I see a meteor hitting someone else's house."
Airica: "Nice dodge. "


Adrasteia: "I still don't understand why I have to have training wheels!"
..
Adrasteia: "Yes I realize I'm talking to my broom.  Doesn't change things."


Adrasteia: "Oh no you are not trying to sputter out on me.  You're brand new! Now act right or I'm buying me a woodchipper!"


Adrasteia: "Whoo!"
..
Adrasteia: "I did not almost fall off.  I was totally in control the whole time."


Airica: "Huh so that's what that feels like."
Reka: "What?"
Airica: "Maxing a skill."
Reka: "Well well aren't you just a productive member of the dynasty slave union."
Airica: "You have no idea what you're talking about."
Reka: "Oh yea?"
Airica: "Seriously.  You're not even really in charge over there.  Minor little powers and all that from what I can see.  You don't have the heart to deal with a real dynasty."
Reka: "You think I couldn't do this?"
Airica: "I know you couldn't.  Not Artie's part. Not my part.  You can't even do the voice thing properly."
Reka: -fries the computer-
Airica: "That's just low but Apollo can fix it and this means I can spend Saturday night with witchybutt."
Artie: "What about munchkin?"
Airica: "Make sure she doesn't stink when she goes to bed.  Otherwise, I'm sure she'll be able to handle all you big babies who can't do anything for yourselves."
Artie: "I think I'm offended."
Aker: "No you're not."
Artie: "Oh well then I'm not."


Adrasteia: "Artie this is awesome!!"
Artie: "Glad you like it.  Don't forget to take a bath before the party."
Adrasteia: "I can go?"
Artie: "I don't know why not.  You're my blood so I should be able to take you without any issues."
Adrasteia: "You're so awesome."
Artie: "I know but can you say it again?"


Adrasteia: "Target acquired.  Ducky! prepare to launch torpedoes!"


Adrasteia: "And as the new queen of this court, I demand you all do 50 pushups before breakfast.  Just because your teddies doesn't mean you have an excuse to let go of yourselves."


Artie: "See what I tell you kid.  Just stick with me.  I know peeps."
Adrasteia: "Ares said this is your baby mama's house and the reason I got to come was distraction."
Artie: "Doesn't matter why you're here.  It matters that you're here.  Now go find Eileen and make her play tag while I mingle."


There is something about being at Eileen's house that causes the Grims to get robbed.  Well.. a burglar shows up but I don't think anyone has ever stolen anything in all 50 Sim weeks.
Burglar: "Why do these people have an ice Grim? Why?!"


Burglar: "Why do these people have an alarm and an ice Grim?! I'm getting outta here."

*bonus* the alarm is so far from the tents - no one in the house wakes up.


Adrasteia: "Take that, evil woman!"
Airica: "Oof.  That was a good one but can you fend off my over the top attack, huh, short one?" -hits back-


Adrasteia: "There has been a disturbance in the force, witchybear."
..
Adrasteia: "I don't know what it is but it's big.. and involves sandwiches."

**Breaking News:   Francisco Dennison has passed away suddenly due to starvation.   How sad it is that one of our neighbors had to go this way when all they had to do was ask a friend for a sandwich? **


Airica: "Witchybutt!  How could you?!  You were supposed to come over.  You could have raided the fridge here like you always do. Not fair."
Reka: "So that stone heart of yours has a crack huh?"
Airica: "Go away."
Reka: "Oh no.  It's not cracked.  No mourning moodlet."
Airica: "Leave already.  Aker mourned you for two days and I can't even mourn my lover for more than a few moments it takes to look at this gravestone. "


Adrasteia: "So... Uh.   Isn't there like a regulation haircut you should have when driving kids to school?  Do you want one of my hair clips to help?  I'd really like to make it since it's my first day and all."
Bus Driver: "What are you talking about?"

Poor Francisco!  :-\  I've seen that happen a few times and always find it unsettling.
I'm surprised at Addy's reaction. She doesn't seem affected by the loss of her daddy at all. Does she have the stone-hearted perk?

No stone hearted is one of Airica's LTRs .  The whole household got the memory of someone dying but none of them got the mourning moodlet.  Adrasteia didnt even blink.  He wasn't on lot so I guess that's why.  Still sad and unexpected.

I know some of you already knew this but I had to reformat my computer this week and it took forever to get all my Sims stuff back the way I liked it because of lack of sleep and an exploring 9 month old.

To make up for a lack of updates, I share this with you all.




Looks like I need to update Artie's wardrobe with it's pattern again

I don't know.. it's kind of clashy to me but then again I remember Angelica and swore I would never put that much pink on a Sim again.

Probably not.  But I already know his buttons so I can at least distract him from being miffed. ;D

I think so too!  I love that pattern and so does Artie so we're glad you made it.

There you go! Don't tell Colt though.  He'll think Artie has gone soft.

Adrasteia: "What do you mean insane sims don't wear their PJs?  Why have them at all then?"
..
Adrasteia: "You're making no sense now."


Adrasteia: "Whoa Whoa Whoa!  What was that?"
..
Adrasteia: "Pshh I'm an excellent driver."
Angus: "Then why are you half out of the seat?"
Apollo: "So not it when she becomes a teenager."
Adrasteia: "What happens when I become a teenager?"


Francisco: "This is so cool.  No one ever wanted my sculpture when I was alive."
Artie: "Actually we did but you died before we thought we needed to get one.  I'm glad the body sculptor works on you too."
Francisco: "Me too.  I didn't like being so scrawny."
Artie: "It's just the way of things.  Die of starvation become a toothpick in the ever after."
Francisco: "Have you met a lot of Sims that died of starvation?"
Artie: "Quite a few.  Stupid vampires never carrying plasma fruit are the worst."


Adrasteia: "Daddy... why are you in that room with the door locked?"
Francisco: "Because Daddy doesn't have the Steel Bladder reward that you've got."
Adrasteia: "So what are you doing in there?"
Francisco: "I'll be right out honey."


Adrasteia: "C'mon broomy.  It's time to go to the scouts ceremony for helping out old ladies."
..
Adrasteia: "I know! I can't believe I made it to level 3 in two days either."


Adrasteia: "Mommy can you come get me?"
Airica: "What's wrong sweetie?"
Adrasteia: "My broom is really slow, it's really dark and the teleport home thing doesn't work anymore.  Plus it's kind of chilly up here by the school in nothing but my PJs."
Airica: "Why are you in your PJs?"
Adrasteia: "Why not?"
Airica: "Because I think you're the first Grim to ever wear them."
Adrasteia: "Oh that's why she was so shocked.. So are you coming?"
Airica: "Got the car in my pocket and I'm teleporting now."


Adrasteia: "Ugh Dad!"
Francisco: "What?  Don't like the ectoplasmic hug?"
Adrasteia: -shudders- "It's a bit cold."
Francisco: "Oh didn't think of that.  Sorry Pumpkin."


Airica: "I can't believe we were beaten by a ghost!"
Adrasteia: "What do you expect?  He hangs around all day playing with the toys while we go to school and work?"
Airica: "Still.. my pride is hurt.. I think I'll have to choke myself." -makes weird noises-
Francisco: "Oh sweet cheeks.  It's ok.  I'll make it up to you."
Adrasteia: "Ew gross..  I'm standing right here people!"


Airica: "So.. you're going to make it up to me right?"
Francisco: "Of course.  What do you have in mind?'

Francisco: "Wha?"
Airica: "I'll make it up to you.. Promise."
