Winchester By MySimsRealty

A lot has happened since our last issue... I got me some awesome new shoes (always cheers a girl up), started in on my summer wardrobe (which is looking pretty stunning so far – just gotta get in shape to wear it all) and I had a baby (more reason to get in shape). All of these have made for quite an interesting few weeks… and although I did not have much to do with the SF production this issue (yes, I openly admit it), I am proud to say that my peeps (insert gang sign here) managed to pull it all off - sans moi - with flying colors. This issue is honestly one of my favorites (then again they all seem to be up there, don’t they?). Bursting at the seams with all kinds of new talent, new features and of course new community content. It had me think about going on hiatuses (is that a word?) more often. It’s colorful, fun and oh so SF and who doesn’t need all of the above once in a while.


Editors Notes

Alli starts it all off with a fun artsy piece which showcases another of her many hidden talents – styling. We have new content creator showcases and interviews with Sim designer extraordinaire Miraminkova, oh so smexy Sim maker Chobits and interior diva, Linday. That’s right; we’ve expanded our interiors section too! And as you continue to flip through all the awesomeness, keep a look out for our new-comers, KateSterling, Vintage and Simanims, as they strut their stuff in their very first editorials. Sadly, as we welcome in the newbies, we also prepare to say goodbye and thank you to one of our “older” staffers – SylentWhysper. You will be sorely missed hun (especially after seeing the awesomeness that is your “Swan Lake” editorial – LOVED IT!). Last but never least, a special thank you to CBon73 for his gift of the Zuhair Murad Couture Collection. Murad if one of my faves and you outdid yourself on this one my dear! FANTASTIQUE!

don’t design clothes. I design dreams.” is the tagline on miraminkova’s TSR page. We would have to agree. miraminkova’s designs are timely, fashion forward and always a little bit surprising. Even better, she is one of a handful of creators out there making amazing clothes for Teens and other ages as well as “Young Adults”.

Words by AsiaShaMecca


right bouncing lyrics keep twinkling through our heads. “I’m a Barbie girl. In a Barbie world. Life is plastic... it’s fantastic.” It’s a world within a world, within a glowing pink fantasy world. Neon bright and cutting edge fashionable. Crisp converse colors and clean lines are back in a big way. Color is key this season. Neon has returned strong, but how to wear it?

We suggest these contrasting accents to pure white as a memorable start to your season. Think of it as 80’s meets 90’s with a liberal dash of NOW Indulge your Sims inner Barbie girl and CAS a splash of brightest color. Just a splash mind you... Welcome to the doll house.

As the winter months slowly wither away, spring over takes the great outdoors. Snow melts under the warm sunshine, colors of all kinds are found in the wild bushes. And green over takes the senses as trees cover their bare branches with leaves and the ground swells with wildflowers and grass.



We took advantage of this developing beauty and laid a picnic out for our teens. But just because this is outdoors, does not mean they would arrive in shor ts and sneakers. Our teen shoot showcases some wonderful spring wear for your teens return to school after break and after they shed their winter coats. Heeled booties, patterned stockings, pearl chokers, wide brimmed hats, and vibrant colored floral patterns all make your teen stand out. And that is what all teens want, isn’t it?

pring anew!

Spring offers a fresh new start. It’s a time of renewal and youth. Why shouldn’t Spring bring a fresh new look for your simmie’s home too? Keep things fresh and fun, don’t be afraid of bold colors. Stuffy, safe and boring is so ho-hum. If traditional is your style, that’s OK but consider adding an unexpected touch, perhaps with some fun colorful modern art! There are so many fabulous choices of custom content out there to liven things up. Most of all have fun!

ree-spirited and fun, the bohemian Mama is a stylish one. Boho-Chic is the perfect choice for expecting ladies. With it’s flowing lines and natural palette it lends comfort and ease in a time they are needed most. Eye-catching accessories, inspired by nature, top off the look and give it a touch of sophistication. If you are feeling brave then pile those baubles on. It will only enhance this look. This style is made for experimentation but always remember; a true Bohemian could care less about fashion. If you focus on your growing baby and what feels good for you both, your Bohemian spirit will shine.

abies…babies…babies! Who loves ‘em? We at SF certainly do! We love them so much we found it fitting to include a little section dedicated to the loves of our Sim mommies and daddies. Who says that toddlers cannot be fashionable and cute? These creators sure don’t agree with that! They have made onesies that are functional, fun, cute, warm, and fashionable just for your little darlings. We have found onesies that will keep your toddler warm on those cold spring nights and some that will let them breathe and move around more freely when they are awake. And of course we have included the options of buttons and zippers for mommies to choose from. We at SF also have the pleasure of introducing Aikea Guinea’s new toddler line inspired from the real FEATURE by DustyDreamer life collection, “My Baby Rocks”. It consists of fun quirky patterns, lettering, and cute cartoonish designs. All of these onesies are unisex and CASable, making them more versatile than other toddler outfits.

Swan Lake

Beauty arises from the deep to console the fragile soul of the one turned feathered. We all know the story of the Swan Lake, one of the most popular ballets from the 19th century. It is a classic fairytale, filled with princes, princesses, sorcerers, evil, magic spells, and true love.

For this issue we decided to incorporate that tale into one of our shoots. This hauntingly beautiful shoot features delicate choices in lingerie and SylentWhysper’s gentle touch to bring to life a scene that manages to have a cold, romantic, dark and lethargic feel. No words are needed here, this shoot tells its own story with its dramatic impact in mastery of the portrayal of movements, gestures, and postures.

I have been here before,

But when or how I cannot tell: I know the grass beyond the door, The sweet keen smell, The sighing sound, the lights around the shore. You have been mine before, How long ago I may not know: But just when at that swallow’s soar Your neck turned so, Some veil did fall---I knew it all of yore. Has this been thus before? And shall not thus time’s eddying flight Still with our lives our love restore In death’s despite, And day and night yield one delight once more? ~ Sudden Light by Dante Rosetti

DOUBLE trouble

Those sneers... those eyes... that leather. girls love bad boys.


Or so they say... and

the Blake brothers are bad to the bone.

Tees, skinny jeans and leather transcend any season. To be honest, we don’t all enjoy a holiday in the sun. Sometimes fashion is crud and style is the answer. And you can have any style you want to boys.

You don’t have to comb your hair.

You don’t have to

shave if you don’t want to. You don’t have to look... “nice.”



whatever you want to!



style you like and rock the world!

t h g i l t o p model s

i l l e r a t n a S a i P First Winner of “The search for the next fashionista”, the beautiful Pia Santarelli has proved her talent and is now ready to be a true fashionista!

Pia Santarelli was born in Barletta, Italy. 21 Years ago, she was quite a solitary girl but adventurous child and moved up to Twinbrook when her little brother died accidentally. Absorbed by the taste of studies, she graduated without problems. For a time she studied journalism and posed for an unknown photographer in order to pay her way through school. Participating to SFTNF, Pia has showed that she really can model and a fashion queen. Her listening skill, her open creativity and huge versatility won her the title of ‘fashionista’, deservedly so.


We are delighted to introduce her now featuring one of her prizes, the stunning couture collection by Cbon73.

ROAD TRIP Baby, you and I are meant to paint this town red. Let's ride with the windows down and our hair flowing in the hot wind as we track across these dreary places to one of fortune and fame. This road trip was meant to be. At SF we are gearing up for the summer and its sizzling heat. We bring you an editorial that is brimming with sultry summer fashions for your sims. And no, we did not leave out your male sims, sure they are only half dressed‌ but would we really want them any other way? Denim never goes out of style and cut offs are the best kind of alteration one can do. Pair your denim with belly bearing shirts and long boho styled necklaces, or *ahem* nothing at all and your sims are good to go.

magine a hood free of he-puddings. Just handsome chiseled men walking about like they own the place. Suddenly meeting your neighbor is a lot more intriguing, and who is that lolling around at the coffee house waiting for his next show? Yummy. Well this world can be yours if you embrace the men of Chobits. And why wouldn’t you? They are gorgeous! Chobits has been filling his Sims 3 page and his blog with sexy male Sims for years. If you haven’t heard of him, you are missing out on some of the hottest Sims the community has to offer. SF Magazine is thrilled to have a chance to get to know this talented creator.

material and CC that the amazing community had created over the years! Over time and with the help of the community the Sims 3 has grown into my new addiction of game play! I’ve only created new and happy memories with this game franchise!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us. Please tell us a bit about yourself? I am 23 years old. I was born and live in Washington. I just graduated college last year, with my teaching certificate! So during my first year as an official teacher, I have been subbing in two school districts. I’m also in the process of gaining my masters in education (administration)! I have to say that I’m very happy at where my life is right now. I enjoy work and have wonderful family and friends! I would have to say that my addiction to Sims began with Sims 2! It was a birthday gift and once I played it, I was addicted to the game, my first pc game ever! I would soon buy like all the expansions and stuff packs! With the Sims 3, it was a slow process to move away from the Sims 2 and all that wonderful and already available


It must be tough keeping up with the Chobits blog, TS3 and you also have a legacy family blog as well as an active Facebook page. Why do you do it? What are some of the joys in being so active in the community? What are some of the challenges? It is very tough, keeping up with all of it but I enjoy it so much! I have made a deal with myself that I would upload a new sim or sims every month on my blog. My blog has become my place to let my creativity grow and lets me express myself in a positive manner by providing Sims to others! I’m always on Facebook, so that’s no problem! :P My TS3 page, I have to admit that I haven’t been that active on it but

We started following you on your Sims 3 profile. What prompted you to set out and start your own blog? I personally wanted my own space where I could put up my creations and set up my page the way that would fit me! I wanted my Sims to be accessible to more people and make easier for the community to find my Sims! I wanted this space to really be able to thank the CC creator’s and post links to their sites! Most importantly be able to clearly thank and provide information for other players to find and enjoy those amazing CC items! I also enjoy the updates the Blogger provides to me, as other creators post new creations, news, and mods!


when I am, I enjoy catching up with friends and occasionally posting my new Sims there as well (that’s if my launcher allows me too)! My legacy family blog is so much fun for me and I enjoy writing the story! I also put a chapter or two out every month! The joys for being active in the community would have to be the people and all the creativity they

put up every single day! I enjoy chatting with all their loved ones moving on with life and passing kinds of different people from different parts of away! These type of events, I believe would the world! I love seeing new creations that the community shares, which I truly appreciate and really thankful for!!! The challenges would have to be time! Realizing the older I get the less time I have! With work and school, its really challenging to find the time to actually sit down and play the Sims for a couple of hours! However, every time I get online and read great comments, it inspires me to make the time to create more! I started reading the Hilton family and couldn’t stop. You’re a gifted storyteller as well. Where does the story come from? Where do you get your ideas? Thank you so much! I’ve been playing this family for about two years, many of the characters are born in game! I wanted to create a story using the elements that the game had to offer and I wanted it to have some supernatural elements in it as well! I enjoy reading and watching horror, action, and science fiction. So I wanted my story to hold some of those aspects and to hold a dark element to it as well. So basically, I am inspired by a lot from those genres! I especially enjoy the vampire genre (not the Twilighty aspect of the genre)! I believe that vampires are tortured individuals that live forever by ending others lives and watching all

leave damaging aspects to any character! Either the character moves on or simply lives in their guilt and becomes the monster that everyone will eventually fear! The story itself is about an ex-vampire named Danny, who cured himself and took a potion of everlasting life. He truly wants to repent for all his bad deeds by vowing to cure all his family members that he had turned. As the story unfolds over time, Danny learns that it might be to late to undo the damage that he has brought upon his ever expanding family! Now lets get back to those smexy Sims, why

15 89

did you make the decision to focus just on the men-folk (not that we are complaining a bit)? This is really a good question! It began right from the start of the Sims 3 community! I would look on the exchange and see all these gorgeous females all decked out in their beautiful outfits and hair. They were simply divine, but the exchange offered very little choice in males! I

How long does it take you to create a Sim? When do you look at one of your creations and say, “This is it... this guy is ready to face the world.”? In some cases I tend to take a couple of hours and to some extremes a couple of days! Yes, DAYS! Creating a Sim based on any real person takes a massive amount of time! Not only are

also was truly inspired by this creator named Ninjon! He created some really amazing guys! So I started to create some of my own with some minor success at first! But I think over time, once I got better with capturing more of the facial aspects to my Sims that I really started to enjoy creating males for other players! My blog and Facebook page only confirmed my joy of making males, once I started getting praise from players from different parts of the world! I sometimes don’t believe that I made friends from different countries! But I’m really happy that I did and really enjoy chatting and answering their questions!

you looking for the right CC that even comes close to what you want on this Sim, its the facial appearance that really takes your time! When I think a Sim is done.....hmm....It’s when the Sim becomes really annoying and it seems that your making a bigger mess of the Sim than humanly possible! I mean when I create a Sim, I’m not all to worried about what he’s wearing because I really focus on what he looks like! I want his facial appearance to really catch peoples attention! Besides I fully expect people to change my Sims style to fit into their own style but keeping the Sims handsome features the same time!


be moments of true cruelty out there, but I tend not to dwell on them and focus on the good more than the negative! Don’t let anyone keep you from creating or sharing that you feel is your best work! Believe me someone in this crazy world will truly appreciate the creations you share! In closing, what would you as a creator and a lover of the Sims like to see more of in the Sims community and the Sims as a whole? I would love to see more creator’s that would cater to male Sims, either it be by creating clothing, accessories, and hair! I mean the community has a ton of fantastic creator’s and modders! I LOVE finding new sliders, especially facial sliders! Those type of sliders add more depth to any Sim! I only wish the the Sims actually had most of these sliders pre-installed into the game! I would like it if the game would add more to CAS in terms of designing your Sim, instead of the massive amount of clothing and sometimes oddly shaped hairs! I think the Sims community does a splendid job at providing new clothing and hair! Which I truly appreciate for all the creator’s very hard work and their ability to share content over and over again! I would like better sliders to really enhance the Sims features to really make the Sims more life like. I think that over time the Sims will only get better!

What advice would you offer aspiring creators? I would tell them to be themselves when creating, not to cater too much to what others want! Believe me I tried that for awhile and it got old real fast! I would encourage new creators not to get frustrated when creating. Creating anything takes time and practice and once you get to a point and look at what you created and go, yeah that looks pretty good! Then you will know when you want to share it with others! One important note for new creators would have to be the comments! Yes, every creator Thank you and the SF staff for this amazing gets either the really fantastic comments and opportunity!!! praise or you get those comments that aren’t as nice as you would like them to be! There can ~ ~





Y Father/son day. I think the shudder I feel says more about me than it does about fashion. If your idea of sim boys clothing is a EA bin tee and a pair of 2009 Judie jeans, then this spread is definitely for you.


These visions of natty pappis and for ONCE equally natty offspring actually brought a light mist to my eyes. Who knew Sim tots could look so stylish? Who knew father/son duos could coordinate so... well. OK Jasumi knew... now turn to the back and get to downloading smart guy. You know your Sim kids look a mess and it’s not OK.

Abandoned Romance

“I miss you when something really

good happens, because you are the one I want to share it with. I miss you when something is troubling me, because you are the one who understands me so well. I miss you when I laugh and cry because I know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow and my tears disappear. I miss you all the time, but I miss you most when I lay awake at night and think of all the wonderful times we spent with each other; for those were some of the best times of my life.

Gadgets finds for THE “Computer Whiz”


Ohhh yes... The much anticipated

Showtime expansion. Besides the obvious charms of a singing career, new places to woo hoo and lots of cuties running about in teeny little magician fetish costumes (and of course the skintight acrobat outfits for the ladies), Showtime brought the geek out in all of us with scads of new gadgets.

Sure it practically takes a Game and Simulation Programmers Certification to navigate the wilds of Sim Port, but with a few clicks your average gamer - and by this I mean ME- can easily sort out the new electronics and hobby objects in Showtime and a “motherload” later, geek out till your heart is all warm and fuzzy. In my humble “o” Showtime rocks! OK, I’ve yet to jump through a flaming hoop without setting my wetsuit on fire, but I have a golf course in my living room and many a happy exhausted picture taking couple *insert sly wink here*.

Here comes the sun... right? Spring is a time of renewal. We dress it up in strong brassy colors and audacious accessories. And for some that’s fine. But the other side of Spring is softer... more rarefied. Delicate, sublime and otherworldly are the words which come to mind. Barely there color and soft wispy hair. Doe-like eyes and above all innocence are the ideas behind these looks. They’re not for everyone, but for that certain Sim it’s not a look. It’s the look. PHOTOGRAPHY by SIMANIMS WORDS by ASIASHAMECCA

Beauty 106


Pale Skin Done Right. Choose the right pale skin for your Sim.

Your selection should bring to mind virginal innocence perhaps with a hint of blush touched in. Anemic and flat skins will give this look an entirely different feel. Ok if that’s what you’re going for, but not the best choice for a subtle radiant effect. Choose wisely and you’re more than halfway there.


Eyes Are Just the Beginning. Ethereal isn’t just about the eye-makeup.

It’s about the eye’s themselves. If you’ve come this far, you know about custom content (because EA skin just doesn’t get that pale). How is your contacts selection? An eye with otherworldly doll-like highlights is perfect for this look. Let’s call it mandatory shall we?


Barely There Eye Color.

Define your Sims eyes in the most subtle way. Use eyeshadow shades like soft rose, lavenders, mauves and apricots. Open up her eyes with maxed lashes and thick upper lid liners. Leave the lower lids bare or open her eyes with a soft white or pale liner for the watermark or inner eye corner.

Soft Barely There Lips.

For invitingly kissable lips, pick a shimmering lipstick or tinted lip transparent gloss. Glossy or matte, the color should be subtle. CAS the barest rose or mauve or just the softest hint of pink to give that nude feel... Even better, just leave them nude. It’s more ethereal that way. Ethereal is an amazing, fresh new look to analyze and most importantly, glean inspiration from. Perhaps it can be adapted for every Sim at that. Embrace it, and give your Sim a heavenly look for Spring.

SIMcredible! Words by Madison1909 Picures by Kementari




first came across Simcredibles` fabulously sophisticated color-infused furniture sets during one of my many Sims2 CC shopping forays (ages ago) and was just blown away by their quality items and equally impressive design skills. In fact, I still have a few of their advertising images saved in my design inspiration folders – for those `mental block moments. Their ability to create stylish items that we actually ENJOY using over and over was what drew me back continually over the years and had us all stalking their site for additional updates.

And because, we at SF Magazine – like many of you out there - have employed the use of their wares in several of our interior design projects, we just could not resist focusing on their work exclusively for our inaugural Interior Design: CC Creator Spotlight. Undeniably a MUST have staple in any simmers furniture catalogue – behold SIMCREDIBLE!




Living Spring has sprung and it’s time to freshen up your living space. Kimwriter, one of the newest interior designers on the SF team, inspires a spring home makeover with the retro feel of midcentury modern. Mid-century modern style has a timeless appeal it seems as designers rethink the avant-garde styling of the 1950’s and give it a modern-day touch. Clean simplicity and integration with nature mark the classic


style with square lines, rounded edges, and smooth wood grain accents. Colours for Spring should be invigorating yet relaxing with an overall refreshing feel that we yearn for after a long cold winter. Blue in the hue of robin’s egg is romantically springtime and lends towards a calming effect, while splashes of sunshine yellow stimulate the soul. Balance off the room with a touch of fresh light pistachio green to soothe your spirit and you’ll have a refreshing space to spend those delightful spring afternoons.

World Showcase

The Winchester Farming Community 2.0 by MySimsRealty

Welcome to the Winchester Farming Community 2.0. This is an updated version of an old classic that is quite popular. Winchester is a small rural world, it has two legacy priced lots. It has a small motel in the town there and has some new lots for Showtime. If your sims are seeking solace away from the hustle and bustle of a city, complete with rolling farmlands, dirt roads and a little red schoolhouse, you will want to download this world. Don’t think though that your sims will be lacking in night life opportunities as this world also has several clubs and bars to enjoy that blend in with the rustic charm.

“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



Requirements: World Size: Small Empty Lots: 10 Total # of Lots: 59 What is Included: This world has all base game rabbit holes, all Ambitions lots, all Pets lots, a local watering hole, dance club, exclusive club, and a poolside club. There is also a public pool, library, gym, hotel (setup as a club), beaches, campgrounds and much to explore!



The Winchester Farming Community is not populated. But there is also a Saved game with over a dozen families in various stages of development.

Creator Tip: MySimRealty on...

Getting Started Well I actually could write the tutorials, so I can’t say any of them helped me. I learned by trial and error - if you look at my original worlds you can see they’ve come a long way. You can make your world populated but it requires mods and not everyone likes sims in it so I don’t take the time for that, just do the save file. I am sorry I don’t really have a resource to refer to, I am kind of a resource of sorts for other CAW builders so... hehe I guess one resource that has been of HUGE help to me is the CAW forum on Sims 3. It is a great community with other skilled builders and its nice to have people to bounce ideas off of and share with. They have been my biggest resource in learning CAW because if I ran into an issue I could post on there and see if anyone else had the solution yet or post the solutions. They also have a large index of worlds to look into, I don’t post most of mine on there but there are a lot of nice ones on there.

Creator Tip: MySimRealty on...

Working in CAW First, do not give up and give yourself time to get used to CAW. Second, recognize that you will have your own personal style so aspire to perfect that instead of trying to be like someone else’s. Third, if a world looks good in CAW you are doing something right... my worlds always look worse in CAW and then better in game but if they look great in CAW I know they will be awesome in game :)
