Wow, thanks ya'll! All my characters are special to my heart, but Sunshine... She's something else. And I felt bad about killing her off in one story. So I used her in another to make up for it. And I needed an extra for another story... there was Sunshine just waiting around to be used, so I did. She wasn't supposed to end up in so many, but there ya go!

Hi, all! Isn't she pretty? Doesn't she look so sweet? That's because she is!

Let me introduce you to Marian Jessup, aka Sunshine. She is from my stories on (just follow the link in my signature if you're interested). Sunshine, in fact, made her way into three of them, with major secondary roles (kinda) in two.

This is a character created to show the other side of mutant life from the comic books. Sunshine is a mutant, true. However, she has NO POWERS. None. The only thing different about her than a "normal" human is that she is, obviously, yellow. In comic books we always see characters who have some kind of power, something that makes them more rather than simply other. They discuss the 'fact' that there are mutants who aren't very strong or have limited abilities. They discuss physical mutations but show them usually accompanied by some kind of ability or benefit (example: Rockslide, physical mutation but also has properties of ROCK). They discuss a lot of things which we never see, such as the "everyday" mutant.

Well, Sunshine is exactly that. She is basically like any minority, having a different color of skin. How would a mutant like that live in Marvel's universes? Can you imagine her difficulty in finding a job? How she might feel after being rejected by friends and family because her skin color changed overnight? If she lived in the middle of the US, how would she be able to even make her way to a sanctuary like Xavier's? Heck, a government program wouldn't want her except to possibly dissect her. The plight of mutants of this nature are what I would like to see in perhaps a side book to the X-Men. It will never happen though so I write fanfiction about them.

In my stories, Sunshine was lucky enough that her family wanted her away from them and paid to send her to Xavier's School for the Gifted. Barely. She was welcomed there whole-heartedly by X-Men and staff. Students were another thing in that she was often picked on for her lack of powers. Kids being kids and all. At one point she studied under Storm, developing an unhealthy affinity for plants. With financing from a trust set up by Worthington Industries, she eventually left the school to become a florist. Where she hides in the back with her plants and leaves employees to deal with customers who are unaware the store is actually owned and operated by a mutant.

You are welcome to do what you like with Sunshine. I just thought you might like to know about her character as intended by the original author. As I did use her also (again as a secondary character) in a contest held by SynapticSim and Dracine, you can see more about Sunshine here and here.

Don't feel bad for her (even though she does die in one of my stories). In another she will be wooed and won over by a very determined young man who has crushed over her for half his life. Whether she likes it or not, he will ensure her happiness. Eventually.

Now for the sim.

Clothes-recolor by dizi (me!) of SynapticSim's 'Who Wants to be a Superhero?' costume, original here. It is on Syn's Adult Female Heels Mesh (Thanks, Syn!). Both Included
Skintone- by Genesims here. Included
Eyes- recolor by dizi (me!) of Sussi's 'Angel Eyes'. The originals were a little too red in my opinion and made sims look like they had redeye so I just took the red out. Then recolored for the yellow/gold color. Originals located here on MTS. Included
Hair-by DreDo at MTS here and mesh by XM Sims here at the bottom of the page. Both NOT Included (because I made changes, such as colorbinning it and removing unused ages, don't feel right distributing it after making changes)
Eyebrows- are actually Maxis base game (I know, surprised me too!)
No blush (c'mon! can you think of any that would look decent with YELLOW skin?)
Eyeshadow-also by Sussi, can be found here. Included
Eyeliner- again by Sussi, located here. Included
Lipstick- by Helaene, not on her site anymore but might be at the graveyard or something. Included

There is an adult and teen version available for download. They are exactly the same except the clothing for the teen version is on Syn's Teen Female Heels Mesh (Thanks, Syn!) Included

And that's what you get in both/either adult or teen.

Hope you like my Sunshine!

Thanks, Syn! I tried very hard to make it a mix of what they're doing with her now and before. Like I said, I'm very happy with her.
34  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Sims / dizi's She-Hulk on: May 17, 2008, 08:56:06 pm
Yes! Finally! For everyone to have in their own Sims2 game is dizi's She-Hulk!

Once again, I tribute to Marvel's Jolly Green Giantess, The Sensational She-Hulk aka Jennifer Walters. She is the lawyer turned superhero and back again, can't seem to make up her mind as she loves both occupations.

These are a couple popular pictures of Marvel's She-Hulk. Personally I like the first one better but the second is much more recent. I think it makes her look toxic or radioactive, but that's just my opinion. Besides, what do I expect anyway? Hello, green woman! John Byrne was the writer and artist of "The Sensational She-Hulk" volume 2 which I read and first became interested in her. I thought she was beautiful and funny, and have been a fan ever since. You can find more of his art here.

Now on to the sim itself.

Most of the parts are downloaded, but I did (Yes! Me! I did it!) recolor the skintone myself. Unfortunately, I have no idea who made the original. It wasn't marked. If anyone does somehow recognize it and can tell me how to get in touch with the artist to thank them and get permission, I will do so. Otherwise, I'm counting this as anonymous and free to recolor and upload. Sound reasonable? Hope so, since I just did it.

The male side is a little darker than the female since I just thought it looked better that way. I know it's hard to tell in the picture, but its true. A contributing factor in this decision was that for a long time the artists did make her skin a little lighter than the actual Hulk's. Most likely because she didn't get the full effect of the gamma radiation due to getting it from him.

The included hair is on a Maxis base game mesh but you can find a variety of hair suitable of our lovely Jenn (by your's truly) in this thread.

The clothes are, of course, by Synaptic Sim and the originals found here. I put them on the athletic girl mesh (included per Beosboxboy and Marvine's policy, very much thanks to them) instead of the female bodybuilder because most artists don't show her as big as that one appears (or maybe that's just my opinion). I did it some time back so if you look for it in the bins, you might have to go back a ways.

Other clothing shown in the pictures are by Kathy and Persephone here on insim. The business suit is here and the bathing suit here. (Again thanks to both of these artists.) And the other She-Hulk costume, a more modern one, is once again by SynapticSim and located here.

Eyes are by Echo66 on MTS, part of her 'Graveyard' set. It's the 'Envy' color. She gave me permission to put them on a different schlera but I decided in the end not to do it. I like these eyes, just do.  Included.

Eyebrows by Barcelonista, and are either here or here. Not sure which but this is where they would have to be. Included.

The blush is not identified by artist, so again if you know who did it I would love to know.

The eyeshadow shown is by Tinhen on Garden of Shadows. It is NOT included and the sim comes with Maxis eyeshadow. I recommend downloading Tinhen's from here because it does look much better on her.

Eyeliner by Sussi of the defunct Sussisogoodsims, now held here at MTS. Included.

Lastly, the lipstick is by Nichellerj at TSR here. It is a freedownload and is included. Not sure why I chose red but there ya go.

All that adds up to this face on these clothes.

Hope you like her since I am very very happy with my Shulkie.

Very cool, Simz! I like the idea of him having psi-energy claws (hence the name, huh?) and I don't remember such a thing being done before so very original. Good job!
36  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Skintones / Henna'd "Compulsion" on: May 16, 2008, 08:12:51 pm
Hi! I'm really happy with the way these turned out so I hope you like them too.

To begin, let me say that I didn't actually create any of this myself.

From the first time I saw them on Garden of Shadows, Pooklet's 'Compulsion' skins have been my favorite EVER. I simply adore them. She was kind enough to allow me to use them for this project and encouraged me to do it when I first broached the subject. The original skintones can be found here.

The tattoos came from another skintone by Weetzie here on and is located here and here. They're on Enayla's skins and, though I like her skins, I don't really care for them for everyday sims (more for vampires and zombies and such like that). So I extracted the tattoos from the skins and Weetzie kindly gave me permission to use them.

My own contribution came from taking these two elements and putting them together. I took the tattoos for the hands on the second version and converted them to the feet. Then I sort of combined them all together.

There is a small flaw on the design running along the outside and inside of the left foot which I fixed later for the darker skintones. However its only really visible on the medium and it is feet so will generally be covered up with shoes. I don't think it really shows up unless you're looking extremely close-up at the feet. And then probably only if you're looking for it, but I noticed. The flaw, btw, is all mine and Weetzie had nothing to do with it.

There are three sets of all six 'Compulsion' skintones in different mixes of the tattoos. The two darker skins have slightly different colors for the tattoos as the original reddish color didn't look quite right on them. Male and female have the same tattoos because I'm equal opportunity. (Okay, that's not really true. I thought they were a little too girly for males but Pooklet thought they would be fine and it wasn't any real extra work to put it on both male and female, so I did.)

AgingSkins- henna tattoos that progress as the sim ages. Teens start with hands and feet only. Adults add belly and back tattoos. Elders have additional on the left leg.

All tats- henna tattoos on hands, feet, belly, back, and leg for teen-elder

Hands and Feet- henna tattoos on the hands and feet only for teen-elder  

I forgot to take an example picture, but the foot tattoos don't show up very well with the "Sexy-Feet" meshes. However, it does show up with most flat sandals. What I mean is the ones that don't actually cover the foot should show the tattoos still. I did look at them with some custom high-heel meshes where the foot showed and they did appear fine, if a little stretched depending on the mesh.

Thanks again to both Pooklet and Weetzie for allowing me to use their work for this. I'm not talented enough to have come up with anything nearly this good myself.

Woo-Hoo! Rahney gets some new clothes! Well, old clothes on a new mesh, but same difference. Um, as soon as I get time to do it...

I love MQ's computers! Oh thank you so much! Are you planning to update the other versions? Not pushing or anything, just having this one is so fabulous.
Thanks much!
Great job!

Ah, I remember when Quicksilver married Crystal, they had Luna... and then it all ended. I remember the early years which clearly showed the Scarlet Witch's insanity but it was overlooked due to the nature of her power... and look what has happened. Ah, the good old days....
Nice work!
42  Retired Creators / Poppeboy's Fitchick / New Bustic Style on: March 16, 2008, 12:24:36 am
These are just beautiful! I love them! But which mesh is it that we need?
43  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Sims / Dark Beast! on: February 29, 2008, 09:23:05 am
Wow! Great job! I might have to join the story wagon, because in one of my fanfics he's the antagonist. Though don't tell anyone because that hasn't been revealed yet.

I LOVE your Elizabeth. Not many people do historical characters often, you have done a good job.
45  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Custom Sims / Birds of Prey on: February 20, 2008, 05:20:00 pm
Again, I don't know as much about DC as I do Marvel so I'm not very familiar with most of these characters. Having said that, it doesn't mean they don't look great! Good job!
