One of my favorite things to do is to make character-inspired Sims in-game.  I have a lot of fun doing this and love to try to style Sims based on movies, books, or shows that I am currently into. I love to create the characters and then unleash them into my worlds to see what trouble they get into.

Finding Character-Inspired CC

To find character-inspired CC you will have the best results by using the search function.  I tend to look for character-inspired CC by searching for the name of the character.  For example; if you are looking for a dress to make an Anastasia-inspired character you can search for ‘Anastasia’ and find the perfect dress, called the Anastasia Dress by Sifix.

Fantasy-Inspired Sims

I am super big into LOTR so it should not surprise anyone that I have a fantasy game save with a whole neighborhood of LOTR-inspired Sims.  I did an entire page of LOTR-inspired looks in the latest issue of The Resource. Sadly, I could not fit ALL of them onto the page, so my favorite character got left out.  I tend to like the elves the best and my favorite elf (even though she did not exist in the books) is hands down Tauriel.  So I made her in my fantasy game save and Jezi-fied her up a bit with CC.

Anime-Inspired Sims

I have an entire game save of Sailor Moon-inspired Sims.  My Sailor Moon world is quite fun and I really just style the Sims and watch the madness unfold as I let the Sims do their lives with limited interaction. Basing traits from the show as inspiration means a lot of differences between Sims which always ends up in soap opera level drama (Usually between Serena and Rei).

Spooky-Inspired Sims

This year I challenged myself to actually upload some Sims to TSR.  One of the first Sims I uploaded was Morticia Addams.  I love goth and the color black so, Morticia has always inspired me. Morticia takes the goth lifestyle to the next level and I love her for it.  I combined the original aesthetic of the black and white Addams Family tv show with the cartoon to make my version a little bit unique for an inspired Sim.

Comic-Inspired Sims

Obviously, I am very much into comics and Superhero movies and shows. I regrettably mix DC and Marvel into the same game save, so don’t hold that against me. One of my favorite characters in the entire DC series is Mera.  However, I was not too pleased with the casting in the movies, as Mera is such a powerhouse in the DC universe. Because I love Mera as a character, she is definitely one of my most played comic-inspired Sims.

Iconic Character-Inspired Sims

We all have those iconic characters that we enjoy.  One of my fondest memories as a child was my family hosting full Miss America pageants with Barbie dolls every New Year’s Eve.  It was always quite creative as my dad and uncle always entered a Barbie as well.  My uncle always had a bag of shoes because I always lost mine and I got to keep the new barbies, clothing, and accessories.

The most memorable year My uncle’s Barbie was an elementary school teacher who could bungee jump and dive into a glass of water.  So I of course made a Barbie Sim inspired on my uncle’s Miss America Barbie.  (and yes his Barbie won that year.)

Summary

Sims is a game that provides so much nostalgia and joy for so many of us.   Personally, I like to create Sims, so I am always looking at inspiration in the things I enjoy or fond memories to create Sims.  And yes for the record I did create an entire set of Miss America Sims.  It was a ton of work but one of my Sim goals that I had tried to do since Sims 1 and finally completed it in Sims 4 in 2019!

Of course, it is also fun just to create some chaotic Sims and unleash them into your saves.
