Old Avilion Port is coming along nicely. I added a bunch of starter homes (the four in the lower left corner of the top pic), as well as a church and a park.

More Victorian houses that I built this week for Old Avilion Port!

Inspiration here (third one down), here, here, here, and here, respectively.

Old Avilion Port, my neighborhood for Victorian-style houses. You can see some of the ones up there that I’ve previously shared pictures of.

This ‘hood is named for/inspired by the Avilion house/town of Port Ticonderoga in one of my favorite novels, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. The founder will probably be named Iris Chase XD. Or some variation incorporating “Margaret” into it somehow (I really like that name).

Here it is, inspired by this picture: a Victorian-style apartment complex!

I’m working on a neighborhood called Old Avilion Port that is going to be entirely Victorian buildings, including the previous ones that I build for Oclaire Pass.

I also made a dress! I just bought this dress for myself in real life, so I thought, why not make it for my Sims?
For AF everyday. The mesh by strawberrikhunnie (from “Dulces”) is included.

For the anon that requested a mint green recolor of my lashless version of Anva’s Skin for Your Bones!

Without makeup

Comparison shot. The mint green skin is much less pixelated than the olive green version because I didn’t use an action. However, it’s less opaque than the olive green version. Very similar in color to the Maxis alien skin tone.

For the anon that asked for a minty-green alien recolor of my lashless Anva skin: I’m working on it!

I’m pretty happy with the color. I might change the opacity so the green is a little more “see through” (if you will), but other than that, this is basically the final product. It’s pretty close to the Maxis mint green.

…and now that school is out, I’m also working on a few other projects. Stay tuned!

I should honestly just be a pet photographer. I like taking pictures of them more than taking pictures of my Sims.
