Burlesque is one of the hottest trends to hit the world fashion market in recent years, pioneered by the actress and burlesque dancer, turned Fashion Icon; DitaVonTeese. Since beginning as a Burlesque club dancer and stripper, Dita has single handedly transformed the Burlesque scene; from back alley clubs, to a high street favorite and Hollywood movie story. If you are looking for a little fashion inspiration and are just not sure how to create a look that is current and on trend, look no further. Burlesque clothing is all about the glamour and the thrill of dressing up and the best bit, you can apply a burlesque look to any kind of style of clothing. Many people go for the Moulin Rouge look. Which relies on sexy outfits with plenty of glitzy accessories but it works just as well with the addition of a corset to a pair of denims or a feather mask to add some glam.

9


Stockings and suspenders are a popular choice when choosing clothing to give a burlesque look. They add the sexiness to the outfit, although they are a little risky for a lot of people to actually wear if leaving the home, unless its fancy dress. They don’t have to be on show, stockings and suspenders worn under a classy Moulin Rouge dress show great sophistication and glamour.


The main thing to remember when looking for burlesque clothing if try to look for alluring, sexy costume with a sense of flamboyance and extravaganza.

PRAD DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT Questions by AsiaShaMecca Answers and Images by Pradasims http://pradasims.blogspot.com/

DASIMS WS

hen Pradasims came on the scene, couture conscious Simmers sighed with relief. Downloads abound, but couture for Sims is a rare commodity indeed. SF has watched (OK stalked) Pradasims, as the content has gotten better and better. We anxiously await site updates and look forward to a “must have” in every one. Always on trend and current, Pradasims is a Fashionista’s delight! We’re excited to get to know this up and coming Sims creator.

anything from Prada or other designers, but I love the fashion of Jack & Jones, H&M and Zara. I wear sporty and simple clothes. A jeans with a t-shirt or pullover and sneakers. I love sneakers! I am a sneakers-freak! And, I wear short brown hair styles and nerdglasses.

Thank you for talking with us. We at SF are huge fans of your creations. Please tell us a bit about yourself? Hello everybody! I am so excited to be a part of this really cool magazine! So my name is Justin and I am 15 years old and live in Karlsruhe in Germany. My hobbies are drawing, swimming, listening to music and meeting my friends. I am fan of the Sims since my uncle gave ´´The Sims`` to me. I played it everyday! And now I create fashion for Sims 3, and it makes me happy to see that somebody likes them. One look at your page and it is obvious you love fashion. How would you describe your personal style? You are right I love fashion. I can’t buy

13


I was drooling over the Versace H&M collection with Madison (our esteemed editor in chief) and it seemed like the next day you posted your version. That was IT for me, there had to be an interview. You are just getting better and better at content creation. What got you started? Why did you decided to create for Sims? First, thank you! I decided to create for Sims 3 because I wanted my Sims to wear what I want. And I always wanted to do stuff for Sims 2 too but I never learned how. Than I got Sims 3, and I followed a tutorial how to make clothes and opened my blog. I am a huge fan of high-fashion and H&M and I really love the design of Versace, so I wanted to create this collection for Sims too. I published it before H&M was selling it in Germany. So I am fast in creating stuff for Sims 3 :D

you going? Is it still fun for you? Yeah, I got a lot of criticism from people who didn’t like my fashion. They insulted me and brought me down. I was going to stop creating. But I didn’t do it because there were some people who wanted me to create more and that still makes it fun for me to create and publish. I love my fans because they are always supporting me and I have to say ´´Thank you!`` Well we’re certainly glad you decided to stick with it. I noticed that you do not take requests. Where do you find your inspiration? Yes, I don’t take any request unless it’s something easy :D . I find my inspiration everywhere. Everything is inspiring to me! The people at the streets and in stores or in the television, even my friends and classmates. I also watch fashion-shows such as Victoria’s Secret or D&G and so on, or I simply search at ´´lyst.com`` . They have great fashion!

It must be tough “learning on the job” so to speak. The community can be... opinionated. This is not always a good thing. What keeps What tools do you use to create? Has that

14


changed as you’ve improved and learned new techniques? Tell us about your process. I use Gimp for the texture and design. I also tried Photoshop but Gimp is sooo much easier. My ‘new best American friend’ Candy Lover helped me to make the bump-map of the textures. For the meshes I use Milkshape. I am new at meshing and I have to say its very difficult to mesh. And I use TSR Workshop of course. After I finished the new clothing, I take photos of it and share it with the whole world! :D

I also enjoyed Paradasims magazine. Are there more issues planned? No, at the moment I am not planning any magazines. They were just for fun and its very difficult. So, I have respect for you and your team. Your magazine is great! In closing, what are your future plans for Pradasims? Also, as a content creator and a fan of the game what would you like to see more of in the Sims and in the community as a whole in the future? In the future I want to mesh better and to create more clothes. And I want a Season EP like everybody in the Sims community!! It will be the most important EP for me. And I want to be rich by Pradasims. No, that was only a joke!:D

What advice do you have for aspiring creators? For new creators its always difficult to get recognition and respect. They should not take criticism as seriously as I did. If someone does not like what he or she makes, its does not matter because there is always someone I just hope that everybody will be healthy and who will! have fun!

Rhapsody. Open the Stargate. Indulge your senses and free your inhibitions in a world of future fashion.

The future shines brightly. Silver sparkles like laser lights and aluminized metallics. Metallics and swimwear go together like suns and stars. To call it timeless is not needed. If metallics are scorching and on trend this summer, imagine them in the future. Imagine a world of glowing light and zero limits. A living environment so screamingly modern that even modern becomes old fashioned. Imagine a future where your Sim wears clean lines and only what she needs to get by. Swim in that future. In fact why wait? In these gorgeous sci-fi suits and swimwears your Sim can enjoy the Rhapsody... today.

Pump up anything sheer with these hot spots -Mesh Shirt & Skirt by Lorandia Sims 3


Have polka dots ever really gone out of style? They have always been a mainstay for prints in fashion. The dots of yesterday conveyed a classic and timeless style that was meant to create a subtle backdrop for the design of a garment. This year dots have taken center stage on the runway and at home. These aren’t your Grandma’s polka dots. They pop on any fabric, shape and design, luring the eye and making a bold statement. Whether used as a print or a cutout, these dots will draw the eye to you as if they were targets. These hot spots won’t ever fade into the background.

Risky Business Work. If it were fun they’d call it play. At least that’s how the saying goes. But Sims is all about play. Once your Fashionista enters that Business Rabbit Hole anything could happen. And what does “Suck Up to the Boss” really mean? Business doesn’t have to mean boring. Your diva doesn’t have to be a corporate drone. In the Sims, a day at the office can be stylish... dramatic... sexy. We’re thinking pencil skirts, sheer tops, lace, seamed stockings and of course red red lips. Dress your Sim for success and put the “Power” back in Power Broker.

Pink is very enticing. Probably because it has a calming effect and is also the complimentary color to healthy skin tones. Men wearing pink are thought to be sensitive and yet exude confidence. Pink is the easiest color to coordinate with any color in the wardrobe. Pink is one color that can brighten up the dullest of grey coats and soften the brightest of the blacks and navy colors. The various shades of pink include magenta, fuchsia and salmon for men’s clothing.

IMAGES AND QUESTIONS BY ASIASHAMECCA SIMS, POSES AND ANSWERS BY IMHO HTTP://SIMS3IMHO.BLOGSPOT.COM

Special thanks to Yuri for translations.


W

e first noticed the gorgeous Sims of IMHO on My Sims 3 Blog. Recently we discovered her blog IMHO Sims 3 and what a fabulous resource it is! Sexy Sims, realistic well made poses, patterns and more can be found in one easy to navigate location. Best of all, IMHO Sims are packaged with everything you need... no time consuming content hunts here. We contacted IMHO and once we were able to tackle the hurdle of not speaking a lick of Russian, were absolutely thrilled to get to know this up and coming Sim maker. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us. Please tell us about yourself? I am 36 years old. I was born in Belarus where I still live. I have a degree in accounting. For some time I was working as a bartender and enjoyed it very much. I was also a singer in a rock band, but not very long as I got married and had to leave the band. I truly am a very happy person. I have my friends, my children, my husband and my God. A couple of years ago my girlfriend brought me a disk with Sims 2. That’s how it all started. Then there was Sims 3 and my first attempts to publish my own Sims. I have been a fan of your work for some time, your Sims just seem to get better and better. What inspires you to create for the Sims? I can’t say for sure. Any emotions stimulate new ideas in me, whether it’s anger or the feel of happiness or sadness. When I don’t have an inspiration I don’t even try to create anything because it all comes out boring and unexciting. It’s not always easy for me to create something descent. Sometimes I go several days thinking of a good idea. What is most important to me is to make sure I create something that has not been done before. Sometimes there are similarities, however they are coincidental and very much upset me. Why did you decide to start your own blog? There were different reasons. I have always been trying to be independent. Now I have my

own blog, and I can do what I want with it and how I want it. In my opinion, any blog or website reflects the taste, style and a little bit of the character of its owner. I would love to decorate and elaborate my page much more but I have to keep in mind users with slow internet speed and therefore do not do it. I try to compensate for the rather basic look of my blog with my screens and music which I carefully pick for my news. I notice you are very active

on your blog and often respond to comments. What do you enjoy most about creating for the community? What discourages you sometimes? I think if your blog allows leaving comments then you really want to receive those comments and I think it is not polite to leave them without attention, even if the

65


but want to be noticed in the community. They take someone else’s work and make minor modifications and then present it as their own. This always disappoints me. Therefore, I always patiently spent a huge amount of time and effort on my sims and my news, and I almost never take even my own Sims as the basis for the new ones. I use what is available in CAS from EA. I believe that you can not do remakes of already existing Sims previously created and published by other people. Also, one should not copy someone else’s style. If you want to be successful, then you should do something that has not been done before.

person who left a comment will never read your response. There is an old saying that goes “If you want to have friends be friendly.” Comments show how interesting your work is to others. Also, because I am active in my blog I often find new friends. What do I enjoy the most? I like pretty much everything! It’s a great feeling to realize that someone appreciates your work and needs it. I like having an opportunity to show my work to the community and see others people’s work. Of course, there are some unpleasant moments. Some people don’t have patience or talent to create something of their own

66

When you create a Sim what makes you say to yourself, this Sim is ready. This is what I want to post on my blog and share with the community? When I see my Sim starting to get worse than it already is then I know it’s ready! LOL. On a serious note, when I feel that I can fall in love with my Sim as it were a real human being and love him with a passion then I stop and tell him: “Yes! You are ready to go!” But then new accessories and haircuts emerge and I feel tempted to go back and redo that Sim. You also put a lot of work into styling your Sims. They always seem to have their own look. Obviously style is very important to you. How would you describe your personal style? (Laughs) It is difficult to describe in one word. Most likely my style is a mix of grunge, rock, classical, glamour and romanticism. On the surface I am all cool, calm collected but deep inside I am rather a child. You see, it’s so hard to find a definition of what I think I am. When my mood changes, my style changes as well and so does the style of my Sims. Recently you posted a terrific


guitar accessory by NataliS and a set of accessory poses for creators. How did that come about? Can we expect more? Unfortunately, it was just a one time deal. Perhaps, something like this would happen again but as of right now there are no particular plans. Natalie is my internet friend now.

Sims and change it as they wish. Just don’t change the genetics please. I have seen cases when people take my Sims and change the lenses and other physical characteristics and move them with sliders.

Sims and patterns, now poses. What’s next for you? What other facets of Sims creation are you planning to try? My Sims dream is to create Sims with their own add-ons. I mean their own haircuts,

contact lenses, clothes, skins etc which would be unique for every Sim. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to do all that, so for now I use what’s already available. What would you like to see more of in The Sims and in the community as whole? Oh, I can go on forever about this. In my opinion, we need more sliders. Current facial expressions and speech patterns can make the most beautiful Sim look ugly. We need a more realistic face rendering software in order to make our characters more human like.

I think my Sims only became worse because of that. My best wishes to your magazine and your staff and anyone involved in the creation process! XOXO

IMHO

Also, it would be great if CAS items were signed by people who created them. I use so much additional content for the game and sometimes I just get lost trying to figure out who did contact lenses or lipstick or eye shadows in order to officially mention their authors and thank them for their work. I do want to thank them very much for creating such a wonderful game content and sharing it with others. I also wanted to share my work with them, so if any author needs a Sim to demonstrate what they have created please feel free to take any of my

SLUMMING IMAGES BY SIMANIMS

WORDS BY PSEUDOSIM

E

ven good girls go bad sometimes. Go... slumming. When we first saw the lovely English rose Kami Wilkerson in our latest SF Next Top Model competition she wore a lovely oh so innocent pinafore and butter wouldn’t melt in her bow like mouth. When Simanims decided to think outside the pastel box and recreate her favorite shoot, Allium’s “Dark Room” from SF Issue 6, we were so delighted with the result we just had to share. Nims vision of grungy glorious black mixes lace with leather, and goth with just a touch of steampunk. A bit of muted color and hint of naughty but nice gives basic black a whole new life. It’s a hard world in these pics, yet somehow Kami maintains her creamy innocence. Quite the trick, no? If you’re looking at this shoot and thinking “What’s a nice girl like this doing in a place like that?” You’re definitely getting the idea. And if you’re thinking… “Where can my Sim get those BOOTS?” then maybe your Sim is ready to go slumming too.

You might not know to look at this barrio baby, but in our latest SF Next Top Model lovely Candice gave us class and glamour until it was coming out of our ears. Until we begged her photographer CBon to get the girl a little dirty and take a risk. Well, risk he did. Risk and grit in glorious, sultry, hot hot hot Summer color. Can you feel the heat? Sometimes an entry is just too good to stay on a forum thread. Every now and again a judge gets a set of pictures they want to show everyone. These photos were so striking we had to share them with you. According to CBon, they tell the story of a long hot Summer day from dawn until dark. But they don’t need words. CBon and Candice speak for themselves. We know you will enjoy as much as we do.

Geek CHIC

Yeah, we know.

A true geek can whip up a computer from an old Howdy Doody lunchbox, three paper clips and some Cool Mint chewing gum. But... he doesn’t get invited out much does he?

Even when not surrounded by his geeked out brethren, a nerd likes to impress as much as the next guy. It’s like the right pair of shoes. Ladies, tell me when you finally got that pair of Louboutins that you didn’t flash that red sole every chance you got? You know you did. This feature is for the brand conscious geek. The tech worshiper who appreciates a little microchip Caché. The trendinista who knows high caliber electronics when she sees them.... and wants everyone else to see ‘em too. You’re working your way up the Scientific ladder. You’re a Creature-Robot Cross Breeder now and you’ve got the Simolians to burn baby! Show ‘em off!

Yes, there is a makeup wearing guy (or three) out there. Its only smart. Lots of ladies are seriously into pretty. There’s no shame in it guys.

PHOTOGRAPHY by JASUMI WORDS by SOMESIMGUY

The Eyes Clearly Have It.

Surveys say (and by survey I mean me asking chicks on the bus) that one of the very first things to catch a ladies eye is... the eyes. Long sensitive lashes. Dramatically lined eyes. Maybe a shock of emo hair. Start there. This is a NO fail look and not hard to achieve. From so subtle only you will know, to full on Byronesque poet. You literally can NOT go wrong with either or anything in between.

89


Blonds DO Have More Fun.

There was a time when any guy worth his salt was ashamed for the world to know he dyed. Oh we dyed... but you weren’t supposed to know it. And again I say... move on! Bright blond and bushy dark brows are so hot right now I’m surprised this guys hair products haven’t caught fire. Look away from those eyes. “You can’t, can you ladies?... HA! He knows it too.

90


Men Call it Lip Gloss.

And YOU need to have some. Big, soft old sexy lips were survey answer number two. Chapped lips are manly... but yeah, this is a man who spends a lot of time alone. Lip maximizing “serum”, male lip makeup is a requirement. From natural to glossy do something to make them stand out. I think I feel a man-crush coming on. Look away! Look away!!!

Groom Those Brows.

If you’re living on EA base game brows you’re also a guy living on borrowed dating time. I will be frank. They... are... horrid. Even I know that and I own a plaid flannel shirt (tell anyone and there will be slaps). Hunt down some groomed male brows. Let them peek out through your careless shock of hair. Thank me later. And now you know. YES, guys wear makeup. They wear it well, with pride and with a smoking geek girl on each arm. NO... makeup does not go with your beard. That was a different editorial. Let it GO!

But when we dress ourselves, when is the outfit finished? The makeup? Sure, we think of that. But, what about the nails? Nails are the perfect finish, and every fashionista loves and covets her mani-petti time. Why should our Sims have anything less? Adorable nails abound. Where we once had only solids (and boo to you if you don’t have any at all) now those wonderful content creators are going nail crazy! Nails are everywhere! You can go playful, or glam. There is plenty to choose from. Your Sim can have solids, stripes, stones or any abstract thing in between. We think it’s long overdue for SF to shine the fashion light on some of the too delicious nail options out there. Finish your Sims outfit with any one of these delights, or find some statements of your own. You can’t go wrong. Nails are the new jewelry.

efore the menu is even presented an elegant dining room will whet the appetite for romance. Transform your everday dining room into an intimate alcove of luxurious ambiance with a few simple touches. Lighting should be soft and slightly dim - include fire and candle light for an especially romantic ambiance.

stand out against neutral black and cream tones. For an up-close and cozy dining experience choose a table large enough for comfortable placement of food, table settings and decorative accents, but small enough to accomodate only two chairs and to allow for a little middining snuggle. Clear the room of any unecessary clutter and don’t forget to dust off your best china, silver and crystal for the occasion. With all of the little touches in place, and the romantic mood set, prepare to savour the passion.

World Showcase Jericho by Simsample

http://www.modthesims.info/d/464250

There has been a settlement along the Kaen-Garen River for as long as anyone can remember. The Old Town of Jericho was a sleepy place, caught in the past, drifting along quite happily in its own little world. Until one day, someone constructed a big red bridge across the Kaen-Garen, and a new City Hall and high rise buildings sprung up on the other bank. Newcomers moved in, a local government was formed, and new institutions and businesses arose. All at once, the people of Old Town found themselves invaded by a new way of life, and they were not happy!

“It’s understood By every single person Who’d be elsewhere if they could So far so good And life’s not unpleasant In their little neighbourhood” Neil Peart, Middletown Dreams

106


Jericho Will the Old Town citizens be able to preserve their customs, or will they be forced to adapt to the new ways? Will Old Town become part of New Jericho, or will the old buildings remain as a monument to the past? Will the newcomers be accepted into the Old Town culture, or will the societies be ever kept asunder? Only your sims can decide!

107


Geography Jericho is situated on a peninsula in the ocean. The city of Boscaster can be seen inland, in the distance. The Kaen and Garen Rivers cut the land, creating a natural boundary between New Town and Old Town. The commercial area lies where the rivers merge, conveniently situated for access from both New and Old Town. To the south of the Jericho Peninsula is a swamp area, and several small islands formed by the Kaen are reclaimed for the New Town settlement. Jericho boasts sandy beaches as well as shingle, and several ancient monuments form landmarks on the Eastern hills. Climate is temperate, with varying skies. The wealthier residents tend to live in the New Town area, but some more expensive properties have been constructed on the Old Town river bank, perhaps prophesying a turn of fortune for that neighbourhood.

Creator Tip: simsample on...

Weather

I started to research weather because I wanted to make the skies for Jericho. Eventually, when I got to the stage where I was ready to start developing my Jericho weather files, I started this thread so that everyone could pool their knowledge, since I knew a lot of other people were also working on their own skies. As you can see, a lot of information has been gathered there, and in fact I'm part of the way through writing a tutorial based on that research.

104


Creator Tip: simsample on...

Getting Started For planning a world, I think that’s a tricky one to explain, because really it’s mostly inspiration! I had an idea about a town divided by a river, and it grew from there. For planning the actual creation of the world, I think this tutorial is pretty good and describes quite well how to develop things. For routing, this is the tutorial which really contains the best knowledge. This tutorial is a good guide on creating the world flyover that you see when you play a world for the first time. This thread exists because I was wondering initially about making Jericho into a city (like Bridgeport), but I eventually decided against that.

Population Jericho is unpopulated. As you play, sims will be moved into the neighbourhood, or you can move your own sims in. If you wish to have more control or to rapidly populate the town, I recommend Twallan’s Story Progression Mod. If you are looking for sims to move in to Jericho, I recommend looking at the Sim download section of this site, or perhaps the Population Project at Custom Sims 3.
