Maxis Taste Dare #20: PROM

I already had plans for a prom chapter in Fortune & Romance and already knew which characters were going and who was going with whom. So, as part of the dare for Maxis Taste this month, I decided to figure out the makeovers now! See if you can figure out who these characters are. These are all Maxis premades, though some of them are (distinguished) townies/downtownies.



The "pink" couple normally wouldn't be able to afford prom, but they were helped out by a "fairy godmother" of sorts, which is why they're a bit overdone.

(A couple of the boys are shrunk, rather than aged down for outfit reasons.)

Took me ages to figure out the top left couple! ;)
May. 6th, 2011 10:16 am (UTC)
They were not easy to makeover, but I liked how they turned out. :)
May. 6th, 2011 10:14 am (UTC)
I see Brandi and Skip, (they're the last couple, right?)

Um...That's all I got. But the pictures are lovely! I'm going to add you as a friend, if you don't mind :)
May. 6th, 2011 10:20 am (UTC)
Don't mind at all, and you guessed correctly!
May. 6th, 2011 10:28 am (UTC)
Who is the top left couples?? :)
May. 6th, 2011 11:58 am (UTC)
Peter Ottomas and his future bride.
May. 6th, 2011 10:32 am (UTC)
Oooh, how cool! Awesome pictures. And I enjoy these guessing games. Let's see...

0. Goopy GilsCarbo :P
1. Darleen and Darren Dreamer
2. Samantha and Peter Ottomas
3. Gvaudoin Tricou and... is that Mary-Sue Oldie (Pleasant)?
4. Hot Blond Downtownie and Fricorith Tircou
5. This one's hard. I think it might be Daniel Pleasant and The Diva.
6. Brandi and Skip Broke

You win! :DDDD

I'm really impressed that you were able to recognize the Diva.

Is it sad that out of all of them, the only one I recognized was my Georgie (Hot Blond Downtownie). <3

I really like Samantha and Peter Ottomas' picture!
May. 6th, 2011 10:53 am (UTC)
You get more characterization out of one image than I would get by droning on for hours. The damnedest thing: this seems to be more and more the case. You must be refining your style because it can't be that I'm getting stup... well. Hmm.

Pictures good. Hoop like.
May. 6th, 2011 12:59 pm (UTC)
I think you're right about refining my style, or I hope so! I've also learned some technical skills that are making things a bit easier. Thanks for the compliment!
May. 6th, 2011 11:00 am (UTC)
Awesome makeovers! It does leave me asking how old are Dina and Nina if Mary-Sue is a teenager when they are adults? I mean she has teenage children at the start of Pleasantview!
May. 6th, 2011 11:18 am (UTC)
I've made Dina the same age as Jenny Smith just to fix her memory of kissing Michael Bachelor (otherwise we'd have a 30+ guy giving a teenage girl her first kiss) But they will eventually get a taste of the same thing that makes Bella Goth so much younger than Mortimer.

Also, it seems to be common in Sim culture to marry your high school sweetheart and have kids right away. (Mainly because the programmers got lazy with the Sim memories.) So Lilith and Angela should be in the oven in only 4-5 years or so. ;P

Love the bottom right (second to last?) one. Her scowl is too wonderful.

They all look great.
May. 6th, 2011 12:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I love the Sim bitchface.
May. 6th, 2011 12:40 pm (UTC)
Incredible pictures. I was unable to discover who is who and I'm impressed now that I know.
As always, I love Goopy. <3
Those pants are amazing. LOL
May. 6th, 2011 12:44 pm (UTC)
As a side note, I'm adding you, ok?
I want to follow your journal because I love everything that you post.

This is amazing! I especially love Goopy and Gvaudoin and Mary Sue!
May. 6th, 2011 01:31 pm (UTC)
Wow! These are amazing :D

It took me a while to recognize some of these (like Hot Blond Downtownie, it's been a while since I last saw him in a story), but now that I've read the "answers" I love how you set up the couples. My fave pics are the top two :)
May. 6th, 2011 01:34 pm (UTC)
The Diva is great, I would never have guessed it was her.

Poor Goopy, could he not have gone with fellow romance sim Sandy Bruty? :)
May. 6th, 2011 01:44 pm (UTC)
There's a possibility that he may find romance by the end of the night, especially if he uses some of the cologne he bought from Dina.
May. 6th, 2011 02:53 pm (UTC)
Awesome. I love Brandi and Skip. Their story is so tragic, I like to see them happy. I also love your take on Mary Sue. The Diva with Daniel is hilarious too.
May. 6th, 2011 03:08 pm (UTC)
2)Don't know
3)Gvaoudin Tricou and Mary-Sue Pleasant.
4)Don't know
5)The Burbs
6)The Brokes

Oh wow - top right is the Ottomases? Oh dear - the burbs was a wild guess, but I should have gone with my first impression - that the girl was the diva and the guy was Daniel Pleasant.
May. 6th, 2011 04:24 pm (UTC)
All the couples look great! Daniel and the Diva are too funny! And I see Peter Ottomas had his uh, unique sense of style from the very beginning :P

And Goopy, oh Goopy, how could I not mention him? Those pants and that hat will haunt me forever...
