Summer is here again. Time for long long nights which turn into endless sultry days. And deep tans under lazy sunny skies make you think of white swimsuits and color crazed patterns. Black is so hot... so... winter. Or is it? The little black dress is seasonless. Always the right choice and always the right style. Should the little black swimsuit be any different? We say no. The LBS is just as stylish and the choice for Sims this summer. No pool party or beach getaway is complete without it. Throw on a jacket and the right shoes and it’s an outfit in itself. Accessorize it and you can

A S I A S H A M E C C A go from the beach to... anywhere. It’s simple but stylish. In swimwear, just like evening or day-wear, black makes a statement. It says “This Sim is confident... stylish and can take any heat you dish out!” Summer style is all about attitude. Attitude we know your SIm has to spare. The cold has blown through. Summer is here. This collection showcases the best suits we’ve seen so far. And the best news? Content creators are just getting started. There’s sure to be more to come. Until then, enjoy these visions of sexy summer in black.

M rAntonieddu of MASims3 has literally blasted onto the Sims community scene out of nowhere with some of the most amazing content SF has seen. In just a few months MASims3 has dabbled in 3D eyelashes (REVOLUTIONARY), hair, fashion and of course shoes GLORIOUS shoes and bags with a level of detail we have never seen. We simply had to get to know him. And we can’t wait to get started.... Thank you for agreeing to be featured. Please tell us a bit about yourself? I’m just a student. I live partly in Italy and partly in Belarus. I’m now finishing high school and I’m planning to enter the linguistic university and then, after finishing to move in Italy definitely. A bit about myself: I’m funny, positive, sociable person. I have a lot of friends. Maybe a little bit selfish, but I think I’m a good person. How would you describe your personal style? Probably, I don’t have my personal style. I prefer comfortable things, rather than trendy items. But I can’t say the same thing about my creations. I think they have their unique incomparable style. I try to create things, that I’ve never seen in the game. You mentioned that you don’t play, but enjoy making things for Sims 3? What got you interested in creating for the game? Yes, you’re right. I began playing the sims 3 when the game was released, but there was no custom


content at all, so I returned to The Sims 2. But maybe 4 or 5 months ago I bought a new computer and installed the gold edition of The Sims 3. At

the very beginning I was making only sims and lots. Then I decided to make poses and succeeded in it. After the poses I began doing towns and skintones but these things are rather difficult to make and they take a lot of time. But after that I decided to make clothes and shoes. It was rather difficult and my first shoes were so bad that I didn’t even publish them. But with time I mastered my skill, and now you see what I have achieved. Creating new items for me is just a hobby. I wanted to learn this, and I decided that I must learn this. Everything on your blog is wonderful but we have to say that we have NEVER seen anything like your shoes! The level of detail is INCREDIBLE! Where do you get your ideas? What inspires you to say... I have to make THOSE? Oh, I have a lot of sources of inspiration. Sometimes I just make the real shoes, but sometimes I find the inspiration in Alexander McQueen’s


works. They’re really amazing and I often look through his creations to get some fresh ideas. What tools do you use in creating your content? I have 5 main programs for creating custom content: Photoshop, 3Ds Max, Milkshape3D, Blender and The Sims 3. Yes, I haven’t mistaken what I meant to say - The Sims 3. For me, It’s just a program to make screenshots and to check the new items I’ve made. Unfortunately it’s true. I simply don’t have any time to play, but I don’t want to. It’s rather boring for me. You are very prolific and also your are getting better and better very quickly. What tutorials or sites helped you get started? How long does it take for you to make something for the game? I began creating custom content when I registered on Sims 3 Planet. That site helped me a lot. I found some u s e f u l tutorials that helped me when I was a beginner. Their administrator Anarchy-Cat supported me and I must admit that I learned how to make clothes due to her tutorial. And another creator, Glaza, helped me in the very beginning. She taught me how to place the dress texture correctly and so on. Now we usually speak in skype and share new ideas. But I learned meshing all by myself. It was rather hard but I kept trying and succeeded. Some people say that making new items is almost impossible, but I don’t agree. Usually I spend approximately 2-3 hours to make an item. The time depends on what I’m doing though. If it’s a complicated mesh I can spend even 5 hours working on it, or if it’s a simple shoe, the mesh is ready in 20 minutes. What advice do you have for aspiring creators? I have a good formula for those who starts creating custom content: The more attempts


you make, the better results you’ll receive. Practice is a key to success. You must try and try doing this and one day you’ll succeed. Try to find a source of inspiration: it may help you a lot. I wish you the best. In closing is there anything you would like to say to the many fans of your creations? And what

would you like to see more of in the Sims and the community as a whole? I would like to thank everybody that supports me in all ways: downloading my items, visiting my blog, commenting my posts and of course using my creations. Because it’s very important for a creator to see that his(her) items are being used. I really love you all. Special thanks to SF Magazine and to AsiaShaMecca in particular. I was a great pleasure answering your questions. I hope that EA games will create weather in Sims 3 for us. This is my biggest wish for now. So, I will continue creating custom content and I’ll be glad to see everybody in my blog.

Take care!

Mr.Atonieddu Special thanks to Aikea-Guinea for the tape outfit and pants. You’re the poo missy!

Sugar lmon

The sweetness of this shoot is beyond words. With sky blues, candy pinks, and canary yellows, pastels dictate the sugary feeling. These colors will keep you cool and sitting pretty. They are the perfect outfits for a late date at the beach or for lounging in the sun with friends sipping your favorite drink. The key to these outfits are the accessories. And don’t worry about them matching, as long as your Sims stay in the pastel shades they will look sugary sweet like our models.

he sunshine is lingering as the days grow longer, the weather is getting warmer, your Sims find themselves spending more time outdoors with the pets or kids…. what does this all mean?? That’s right ladies, its summer! It’s time to shed everything that was meant to keep the cold out, because at SF we are only looking at inviting the warm rays in. This summer we bring you floral designs that are splashed in every color of the rainbow. These dresses can be worn to a beach concert or bonfire, strolling hand in hand with your loved one on the boardwalk, or catching up with friends over drinks. Summer is all about standing out in hot colors that rival nature! Keep it simple though, these cute dresses speak for themselves and do not need much else to accompany their voice. With your footwear, we say go a little more elegant instead of slipping on flip flops which can understate your summer dress, go for wedges and sandal looking heels in colors that compliment -not overwhelm- your outfit. We also believe that summer is the best time to sport ponytails and messy braids, it not only cools you down but it also can be worn in many different styles. Now even though you’re looking radiant, don’t forget those necessary things that all summer lovin’ Sims need like a good pair of sunglasses and sunscreen! So, while you’re sipping your delicious coconut juice under your beach umbrella relishing in all the wolf whistles you are hearing, do ya mind reaching into the cooler and tossing us a couple?

They were strangers on a train. The decade was the glorious roaring twenties. The discovery was... each other. The mood? Pure enchantment. Twenties fashion is beyond timeless, beyond “retro” or “vintage.” It’s pure romance. Eternal allure.. enduring transcendent style.



Lush lace, long dresses and ladylike gloves for her. For him, skinny suits, hats and spats. Be a dapper daddy or glamorous doll. Everything’s copacetic. The perfect look for an endless romantic adventure.

REEL REVIEWS Spotlight on

Reviews by FA Productions

Nittens looks like one of those that fly under the radar until he drops one of his bombs, and very powerful ones! His machinimas are nothing but jaw-dropping, mind-blowing and goose-bumps inducing pieces of art.

quality content since then.

He slew our souls with Moment at last year’s SIFF, winning first place in the Featured Machinima category, and continued providing us with

It takes dedication and a lot of patience to tame the wonderful art of machinima-making, and we think Nittens does it perfectly.


Don’t Miss MOMENT

This artist definitely knows how to build awesome sets, create believable characters, use extraordinary camera angles and tell us an amazing story with all of it.



Notable SS PRODUCTIONS: Probably best known for his long running machinima series “Emperor of Evil”, a dark horror about a serial killer with a dark legacy inherited from his father. SS uses a lot of custom animations, voice acting and music in his works to make them appear as realistic and professional as possible. SS Productions also picked up two awards from SIFF Spring 2012; Best Trailer and Best Staff Film for The Phantom of the Opera. MILOBEAN: MiloBean impressed the SIFF panel with his Disney-esque music video The Art of Dreaming, for the the song “Feather” by Little Dragon. All of

Milo’s machinima feature colourful characters and environments, so it’s a lovely change from all of the dark and supernatural horrors we see, no matter how good they are! Milo let slip that he’s working on another machinima that will “rock our socks off”. WINNDY: Winndy captured the hearts of SIFF viewers with the adorable machinima “Should I forgive?” Everything about the machinima was great, from the opening (a cute dog dancing to “Somebody that I Used to Know”) to the heart warming ending (which we cannot spoil here!). “Should I forgive?” is very similar to Pixar films with the sweet plot and the use of animals. We can only hope that we see more films like this in the future!

CHRISTIEL: Christie captivated our eyes with her fantastic machinima “G.O3: The Final Act” at the Sims International Film Festival (SIFF) Spring 2012. For her impressive film, she won not one but two awards! She scooped the Best [feature-length] Film and the Best Overall Film for that season of SIFF! Christie’s machinima are often very dark and she is known for creating her own poses and animations specifically for certain machinima. Now that’s dedication! “G.O3: The Final Act” features voice acting, action and drama all spread out of 6 long parts, totalling a staggering 1 hour 22 minutes! With her dedication and enthusiasm, we are certain that anything Christie does will be pure gold!

Images and Questions by ASIASHAMECCA Sims and Answers by RENATA CADEAU





howtime gave us professions and cute lil stage outfits. Late night gave us celebrity status, but we have to say the celebrities in question may have been a little... erm lacking. Well, if you agree, look no further. There are a few celebrity Simmers out there but we have to say the Sims of Male Model & Celebrity Sims are among the best. In addition to being drop dead gorgeous in their own right, MMCS has a real knack for likeness. We are thrilled to have a chance to chat with Renata of MMCS, so lets get started... Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us. Please tell us a bit about yourself? I’m a 32 years old mother. My daughter is also known for her pose creations. She is 14 ^.^. We live in Brazil. After creating Sims, watching TV series is my favorite hobby. We just kept seeing these familiar (and very handsome faces) on Sims 3 Updates and Facebook. Your celebrity Sims are amazing! Ian Somerhalder and Matheus Verdelho are particular favorites of mine. What prompted you to start creating for the Sims? Oh thank you very much :) Well I always loved the fashion world and male models. My crush is Leif Stacey and he also was my first creation. Then I decided to create all my favorite models and actors... And after some creations I though that maybe some other people would like to have those handsome guys in their games. So I decided to start posting on TSR. Afterwards I decided to create my own blog where I could improve my creations ;) 73

Why did you make

the decision to focus on male models and celebrities -not that we are complaining? :-) Well, it’s not a secret that I’m not good at creating females. I hate myself for not being able to create my favorite actresses like Catherine Zeta Jones and Megan Fox. But, it’s OK for me to create the hottest men in the world! :D

What keeps you creating? What are some of the joys in being so active in the community? What are some of the challenges? It is indeed! I really love what I do, even though it takes me so much time that I can’t even actually play the game lol. I guess I started being more active in April, when I hosted a huge celebrities party. In the occasion I met a lot of famous people in the Sims community. The biggest challenge is to attend in short time all the requests that I receive every day. Yes, we notice that you take requests! Who are you favorite celebrities? What about a particular celebrity makes you want to immortalize them in Sims? Well, like I said Leif Stacey is my favorite ^.^ and I would immortalize him if I could! LOL. But I also love


Creating for the Sims is truly a labor of love.

Gale Harold, Johannes Huebl, Thom Gwin and Lucas Marchi. 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.”? It takes about one week. It depends of the celebrity. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was easy but Harry Potter took me more time. I try to make them as similar as I can. Sometimes I’m not happy with the results and after some time I try again and make other versions. It’s easier to make celebrities that I know well, like Richard Gere or Ian Somerhalder... What advice would you offer aspiring creators? My advice is never give up trying. I usually start with the eyes! I try to make them as similar as I can and when I get this... my work is 70% done 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? First of all and most important, I’d love to see EA creating some decent hairs LOL. The clothes are fine, but never enough. And I can’t wait for a Seasons expansion pack. When that happens you will probably notice that I won’t be so active in my blog and the community anymore. ;)))

Renata Cadeau




ou don’t have to be a sports fan to love the Summer Olympics. Every four years the best athletes in the world compete in that hallowed tradition. The Olympics bring the world together. It doesn’t matter what the sport. We all watch. We cheer our home athletes. We root for the underdogs and we long for that most coveted prize, Olympic Gold. When our


champion wins, it’s as if we’ve won it ourselves. And in a way... we have. Well it’s here, and SF celebrates that glorious tradition the way we celebrate most traditions... with style. When we saw this spread in US Vogue we just had to bring it to you... Sims style. Join us as we commemorate the Summer Olympics. Go for the Gold!

Here at SF we managed to look over a few hundred items and found a couple that will add a bit of charm to your empty kitchen. These accents will make your kitchen a bit more homely and will match any type of décor with their mute colors. We also added a new stove just in case your old one has been acting up. It’s a new design from Ikea that is compact and practical for bakers and cookers alike. - DustyDreamer

Color i z e d CHROMA * LUMINOSITY * HUE * GLOW! Swimwear as art... I love it! Sure we could have gave you another beach, or a pool. Personally I would have been ok with some hot Sim chicas but hey... Sim guys gotta swim too. For men’s swimwear you got 2 types... the comfy board short guy and the speedo guy. Looking at these pics I’m thinking of switching to the speedo team. Fitted shorts aren’t just for the Riviera anymore. If you got it flaunt it. And if you’re gonna flaunt it... flaunt it with STYLE!

ashionistas, thank your lucky stars for Cbon73. There simply aren’t that many fashion forward Sims creators out there. Stylish yes. Designer... no. We’ve watched Cbon evolve. We’re fans. We admit it. Balmain imagined this collection as a trip of Elvis Presley from Las Vegas to South America to Spain. We think Cbon nailed it and we’re absolutely thrilled he agreed to be the first designer featured in our new SF Collection Premier editorial. “Elvis Has Been to Spain” will be available soon at The Sims Resource. Get it while it’s oh-so-HOT!

Boys of Summer

PICS by DrMusix WORDS BY SomeSimGuy

2012 Yeah yeah... summer is for color. It should scream at you right? Right? But maybe your summer is more laid back. Maybe sunbleached neutrals are more your thing. Short tailoring abounds this summer too.

Cropped pants, short crotches

were all over the runways in Milan. But soft denim and sleeves tees never go out of style. A guy could get confused.

It always takes some time to let things percolate and think about what guys might and should be wearing next. The key is your style should be just that. Your style. Put your own spin on it for God’s sake. A guy is not a slave to fashion. The battle between tradition and innovation really isn’t a battle at all. Making summer 2012 yours is the hot look this season.

Une Belle

Words by PsuedoSim


t was a chance meeting. A beautiful day on the motorway. A day of chance. Of providence. He from the north of France and she from the south. Strangers but for that one Summer day. That one spark of romance. They gathered providence in the hollow of their hands, refusing to think about tomorrow. But of course tomorrow came. He went back to his home up there in the fog... She went back , down there, to the south. But she never forgot her day of love, when they hid in the wheat field, letting themselves be taken by the streams. She never forgot greeting providence with a wave. Her first Summer love.

Gadgets finds for THE “Computer Whiz”


A wise woman (who looked great in a pair of daisy dukes I might add) once said, “I don’t know what it is, but I want it.” Right now, that quote makes me think of... Steampunk.

What is it? Why is it so hot? And... why does it look so COOL?!?! Sci-fi, alternate future, fantasy, Victorian era... Wild west... anachronistic technology. Who cares? Steampunk is crazy cool and looks awesome in game. But yeah, unlike life, a little most definitely does not go a long way! When our frock-coated, goggled oh so Steampunky hero goes to make a call and reaches for the regular old boring Sims wall phone... well... he looks pretty silly doesn’t he? Is that a modern bathroom tucked away in his veddy Victorian home? We say nay. If you’re going Steampunk, go all out and outfit your hood in retro-tech too! These gadgets will add a hint of the real to your Steampunk fantasy home (now work that oxymoron for a while). Hit ‘em Harder Blackjack Table by EA Store Ok, is it really Steampunk? DUDE!

ColorP l ay

Seeing bright, crazy colors in unexpected places is enough to put almost anybody in a good mood. Whether it’s neon blazers, hot red high heels or crazy prints, adding a colorful element to your look is becoming one of the most popular and simplest trends to follow. Bring the COLOR trend into your Sims makeup routine by switching out your boring black or brown eyeliner CAS choices with a brightly colored liners for a dramatic pop of color that immediately brightens your Sim’s whole look. PHOTOGRAPHY by JASUMI WORDS by ASIASHAMECCA

Brilliant Color

If a full-on lid of colored eyeshadow is too bold for your taste, you just may fall in love with summer’s colored eyeliner trend. Similar to the bright clothing trend, bright eyeliners are best when worn with minimal or muted lip and cheek shades.


Draw The Line

Don’t want your Sim to look too wild? These pastels add a more girly touch. Whatever your palette, colored liner is a noncommittal way to make your Sim’s makeup pop with just a dab of color along the water line or above the lashes. Keep the rest of your Sim’s makeup neutral so as not to compete with her bright liner

Instant Expression

And yes, guys are welcome to grab the trend too – it looks amazing! A subtly shadowed eye looks ever so slightly deeper-set, more expressive, and more tender. Suddenly, eyes take on a whole new personality when paired with a touch of color. The beauty of eyeliner is in its magical ability to make the eyes stand out for miles and miles. Remember that these trends are guides, not rules and you are the boss of your Sim’s makeup. So, whether you want to make a bright and bold statement with your look, or just be your natural and beautiful Sim self… this is the Summer for you!

here has been much talk around town in home design circles about a hot new rising star in fresh modern architecture. Builder Maggie, known as Chemy at TSR, is taking the Sims modernarchitecture world by storm with many new builds that could be described as affordable luxury, often with families in mind. Our showcase is a home called Lily Modern – a family home with 4 bedrooms, outdoor entertaining area, and equipped with a gym, office and playground – ready and waiting for a growing family. The original location of this home is 455 Sunnyside Blvd in Sunset Valley.


The download itself is free, but Chemy does use items from all stuff packs and expansions – any items you don’t have will be replaced, but our designer Linday assures you that this home is a delight to redecorate with your own personal style preferences.

Images & Words by Not all of us have the good fortune of living in a part of the world where outdoor living is possible year round, so for this issue’s room theme we’ve taken our inspiration from those sunny, warm climates. Mexi-cali interior design, as we interpret it, is

a veritable festival of colour combined with an eclectic mix of décor features. Mexican influences help create an outdoor living, dining and entertaining space that brings to mind hot climates and a fiesta atmosphere.

retro 50’s vibe and the other with sleek, modern elements. Awesims offers versatile designs that you will find yourself revisiting over and over – with many musthave items for your interior design arsenal. Thank you Sarah for these wonderfully inspirational offerings.

Creator Tip: Nilxis Sims on...

Getting Started It’s good to show your works in progress in CAW forums, so if you are doing something wrong people can tell you. The best worlds you can find are product of a lot of work for part of the creator, and of lots of people advising and supporting the world creator. Always try to make your world unique. Don’t pretend to do a Sunset Valley clone, do something different, find a good and unique idea and develop it the best you can! The most important things are be patient and belive in what you’re doing.
