    Jennifer's hangout venue is Kicktail Park. She has always had a weakness for skater boys, and loves the fact that Kicktail park has a arcade as well as a nightclub!!!

    othurs.png

    And here is the inside. It is quite spacious so good for dancing.

    2ibe2h3.png

    There is an arcade next door, her and her crew are real geeks at heart and love a good gaming session :)

    104roe9.png

    Jennifer's group, or club, is called Onyx. She is very open minded and loves alternative sims. So her group reflects that (I hope :)) From left to right we have - Professor Chewy. She actually nabbed him from the Neon East Crew in Windenburg. She loves his bright style and attitude towards life! Felicie Hürtgen. She is a childhood friend of Jennifer's and probably her closest friend! Mark Cloud was a drifter she stumbled across while at a house party. She welcomed him in and they have been friends since. Tamara Thornton is her former skater friend turned goth, she loves her enthusiastic and cheery attitude. Paige Michaels is one of her housemates, the two didn't get along very well at first from a difference of opinions but are now thick as thieves! And Skid Mark is another sim she has nabbed from another crew. This time the Kicktail Park crew! ^_^

    1z5rceo.png

    What she loves the most about the Kicktail Park Nightclub is the easy access home. The underground has helped her on many nights out when she is stumbling around trying to find her way home. It also makes for a great make out place away from prying eyes! :p

    How I'm livin. Meet Zeth Bearclaw, my current legacy sim :) Zeth is a kind guy who likes to party and work out.
    Sometimes he starts a workout right in the middle of the street, lol. Zeth also has a boyfriend named
    Zachary and the two of them are living happily together in their gorgeous little home. Zeth puts a lot of thought
    and effort into his friendships and his dream is to become a famous song writer. He is a master with the guitar and his
    boyfriend Zachary is a master with the violin. It was indeed their passion for music that brought them together.


    W1-2.png
    This is their house which I have created myself and I named it "The Dream" because it is how I would
    like to live myself one day. Sorta anyway. A few changes here and there and we're good, lol!


    W1-3.png
    This island is located in Windenburg and well, it's a very calm place to live! Here's a lovely beach which
    I have used plenty of times for parties and what not. Love the sound of waves!


    W1-4.png
    I guess someone lives here but I have no idea who :p


    W1-5.png
    I haven't added much to the island and I'm not sure if I will either. I like things the way they are at the moment :)
  • ManssomManssom Posts: 4,159 Member
    W2-1.png
    How I stylen. Here is Zeth at home in his usual clothes. It is mostly basic black but with a cool japanese street jacket.
    I think it is perfect for his fun personality and black works with almost everything.

    W2-2.png
    Here is Zeth at Club Oceana. Even more color is added to the outfit when it is time to party, as you can see.

    W2-3.png
    Here is Zeth back at home, relaxing by the pool. Nothing special when it comes to the outfit.

    W2-4.png
    Here is Zeth at Harbour Quarter Gym. Pretty boring outfit, but that's ok.

    W2-5.png
    Here is Zeth at home hosting a lovely dinner party. It's back to basic black with a little white!

    W2-6.png
    Here is Zeth still at home and getting ready for bed. Black with some red, orange and yellow. Hot pants! In other words.
  • NhicksNhicks Posts: 1,580 Member
    Welcome @Manssom !! Thank you so much for sharing and introducing us to Zeth! He is so handsome, edgy, and stylish! I started laughing when I read He starts working out in the middle of the street because that always makes me laugh when I see Sims just start randomly doing sit ups LOL. I see why you Love Zeths home and why you named it the dream. It is lovely! Love the wrap around pieces and all of that water! Yeeees, I can run and dump in and disturb all of that calmness LOL. Zeths neighborhood looks surprisingly calm because judging from that club picture it seems like he might get some noise complaints. He is getting down! I love it!!! I know you don't know your neighbors but their home is gorgeous! Love that pool and surround as well!! Going off topic but that decor behind Zeth sitting at the pool is everything! LOVE! LOL he's at the gym but still on the orund doing sit up! I so love him LOL!! Very Suave at his party! Oh and those Bar stools! Looks like he can throw a good party! Hot pants LOL. Zeth seems Awesome! Can't wait to see more of him, friends, family, and His worlds!!

    The random sit ups was one of the things that made me giggle in this game :tongue:
    I can't believe how often it happens, lol! Well to tell the truth, I built The Dream long before
    Zeth came into the world, so to speak. He and his dad was living in Akimitsu (another home I created)
    before I decided to move Zeth and his partner to The Dream. Did that make sense? Hopefully it did ;D

    How I gatheren. Zeth is the leader of a club called Shake It.
    Basically a club for music lovers and for simmies who loves to dance and party.
    Zeth tries to organize gatherings at least 3 times a week and everyone is usually having fun.

    W3-1.png
    The picture shows Club Oceana, the place where they all gather. And it is the perfect place to
    have a blast and to socialize. Let's have a look at what is going on inside.

    W3-2.png
    As you can see we are in the middle of a gathering and it looks like everyone are happy dappy!
    This is obviously Zeth with his boyfriend Zachary. Not camera shy today Zachary?

    W3-3.png
    People are usually dancing like crazy in this club! Sometimes they even start playing
    on their instrument (if they have one) and then everyone gathers around them.

    W3-4.png
    It is getting late, or should I say early? It was a glorious gathering and everyone goes
    home happy. Especially Zeth because he has his boyfriend and, well... WooHoo! :innocent:

    W3-5.png
    Good night and kissie kissie kissie :kissing_heart:

    How You Interior Designen

    A Lot has happened to Londan since you first meet her, and a NEW HOME is one of the Big Changes.
    Londan and her New Man Saint West have moved in together and a Pre-nup just might be in the works.
    While they both love the young hip vibe Newcrest has to offer, they both felt that a Beach House in Wendenburg would be a relaxing fit
    and what better way to hide out from the paparazzi than a Summer Home on a private island!

    Summer Love( not in the gallery yet ) is a 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Home that features a Semi Open Floor Plan with Kitchen, Living Room, Dining Room, and a side yard with pool, hot tub, bar, & Seating Lounge. Londan, who has been throwing major hints, has turned the second bedroom into a nursery and the third bedroom into her own personal office. Saint has plans to construct a basement which will be hold his "Man Cave" and Office. Plans are still waiting to be approved by the homeowners association.
    Color Scheme is Summer Chic. Bight Yellow, Warm Blue with Hints of Greens Compliment this Modern Contemporary Beach Home well.
    NO CC but I Do USE DEBUG ITEMS


    Kitchen - Small but Efficient and features an Attached Bar and Island Seating
    SD%20II_zps4euax9ly.jpg
    *Photos are of Londan and Saint as well as Londan with Her Friends


    Dinning Room - Right off the Kitchen, has Plenty of Storage and is Great For Hosting Guests

    Living Room - Semi Private Room with Great Surround Sound a Flat Screen TV and Seating for 7

    I Love Shake Club Oceana @Manssom ! Cool Vibe Great color and perfect location! Judging from the last picture you shared of Zeth on the dance floor Shake It is a perfect name! LOL Everyone looks to be having a great time! I love all the glass dance floors! I haven't seen anyone take out instruments when my sim goes out to the club in her worlds. Probably a good thing because no one in town knows how to play but her LOL. Thank you so much for sharing! I look forward to seeing more of your worlds!! :smiley:

    Beautiful home @Nhicks I love how bright and clean it looks. And the interior design has a slight Scandinavian feel to me, which I think is amazing!

    Is this the new weeks theme? :)

    Come to think of it, maybe it only happened with my own simmies. Not sure :) But it does happen one way or another hehe :smiley:

    Gorgeous interiors by the way! I can see you also like using a lot of white as a base :)
    Fun new theme! I better clean their house before taking photos though, LOL!

    So a lot has happened to Jennifer since you left her.

    Her partner, Samuel, proposed. And she accepted. However, a ‘new addition’ to the family put their big wedding on hold. As she and Samuel were slightly low on money, she decided to let her parents move in with them. It was a great way to spend more time with her aging parents, and also free babysitting service!!!

    They moved out from the house she was sharing with her friends, and moved into a standalone townhouse in Windenburg. They were lucky enough to get a great deal, it has 3 floors plus an empty rooftop. Five bedrooms and two bathrooms. No furniture, but it’s a start!!!

    Here is where she is living now. She loves that fact that it has a community pool, and small kids park next door so that the growing family can be entertained. There is also a nice garden that belongs to her building, so her mother the gardener has plenty of space to grow her fruits and vegetables!!!

    o74jk9.png

    When they first moved in it was very bare.

    2gu9xts.png

    But it was soon decorated to her taste! And she was extremely happy to have her father around to do all the repairs and maintain anything technical ^_^; Here is the living room now.

    231m5l.png

    And she was thrilled to have her mother around to do all the cooking, just like old times hehe ^_^ Here is the kitchen.

    2aha0et.png

    And the kitchen dining room (there is a bigger dining table in the living room).

    2m2um0z.png

    They only have one bathroom decorated right now, Jennifer is really liking the industrial theme right now throughout the house.

    9iz01w.png

    Here is the master bedroom. And little Anthony in the crib. Yes, Anthony. The Sim Store mixed up their orders and gave them a pink crib. For a boy. Unfortunately, she does not have time to return it and has to make do ¬_¬

    10yeyrd.png

    And finally the only other room that Is decorated is her parents room. Unlike the rest of the house which is dark, brick, industrial. She wanted her parents to have a room of their choosing. As her father is from the Caribbean, they have a nice bright beach inspired room that they can call their own 

    153tkxc.png

    Thanks all, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! And happy simming!!!

    ♥♥♥

    How I interior designen. I always stick with one household so I will continue
    to show more of Zeth Bearclaw, his boyfriend and their pad. The Dream has one bedroom
    and two baths so it is perfect for a young couple. I have been thinking about what
    I would do if they decide to have a kid (they will eventually). The recent game patch really
    opened up new pregnancy possibilities, lol. But I will think of something. They could always
    move as well, but I really don't want to move! I love this house and the location is so perfect :)

    Let's take a closer look at their home, shall we!

    Outdoor:
    W4-1.png
    This is a part of the lovely outdoor area :) Very sunny and relaxing!

    Kitchen:
    W4-2.png
    Sleek and modern! The fun painting behind the coffee-maker was created
    by Zachary the other day. I think it fits perfectly! He is a gifted artist :)

    Dining:
    W4-3.png
    Cosy and stylish :)

    Bar:
    W4-4.png
    This is where all the hot drinks are made during a party, lol!

    Bathroom:
    W4-5.png
    W4-6.png
    Very relaxing, especially after a long day of hard work.

    Living:
    W4-7.png
    Those loveseats have endured many make out sessions, lol! :grimace:

    Bedroom:
    W4-8.png
    It is amazing sometimes how calming just black and white can be, isn't it.
    And that's pretty much it for the tour :)

    @Manssom I LOVE your Sims Home! I must say I've been a bit scared - okay a lot scared - to try CC because of the issues with Sims 3 But your house is making me want CC! How long did it take you to find all those pieces? DO you get from one website or 50 LOL. It's a great blend of CC and NON in your home too! LOVE your MOO'D outdoor Fireplace! I want thoe pillows on my couch or bed or in RL LOL. Love the sleekness of the all black kitchen and the painting does fit very well there. OOh the Dinning Room, I want to move in! I try to make pattern rugs on my own in game but their are only so many patterns you can do LOL and those chairs are amazing. Yup, want the bar couch too and I want those bathroom in my RL Home! I can see why you don't want your sims to leave! I don't either LOL. Generational house for EVER LOL. Thank you soo much for sharing!

    Thank you :) To tell the truth, I was a bit nervous myself when it comes to CC but I have learned that it is mostly about what
    and how much you pick. I have heard lots of stories about CC ruining games and even computers but I have never experienced
    it myself. I always look up the creators behind the CC (making sure that they know what they're doing) and I scan everything
    (common sense these days). I think you can have a pleasant experience with CC by following these easy steps.

    SIMcredible has some really cool items, and they have both their own website and they are also on TSR :)
    I also like and use a lot of stuff by NynaeveDesign from TSR. Not sure how long it took to find all the pieces,
    I tried a lot of stuff before I decided what I wanted. But it takes time, because there is so much stuff out there :D

    Topic - How You Gatheren


    This is Bell again! And, this is a small "teen hangout" place I built just for my legacy game. It's called "The Pits" It's my take on a bowling alley. It also has dancing in the back and upstairs, a cafe with seating, and a small arcade. Bell and all my other teen Sims go to "The Pits" to just meet up with sims they don't know or even with family and friends.
