DJ Verse and Sam Thomas - OTP?

I think I'm too late to catch the nominations for F/F couples, but I discovered this great match while playing the game today. I've been looking to find someone for DJ Verse for ages (who is referenced in S,HWC as Jaxy Rai's ex-girlfriend, so that's the direction I was planning to continue with her), and the uberhood provided me with the opportunity to check around the other unis. Once she called up Sam Thomas, they quite naturally became this cute, triple-bolt couple, without much influence from me.

Aw, they look really sweet together. Sam sort of has the same face shape as DJ.

Aren't they? ^_^ I think so.

They have the same basic facial outline, for sure, but their noses are quite different. DJ's is sorta Roman and Sam's is wide and upturned (I love that template she's based on, especially the cute nose).

I suspect they may have met at a wacky ironic eyeglasses convention. XD

Can I ask where DJ's glasses are from? I do not believe I've seen them before.

*snickers* Wacky ironic eyeglasses convention.

I believe they're from the first GoS Secret Santa thread. I'd try to find a link for you, but I'm running out of the house right now. Some hunting on GoS and you'll find them, easily. They're a really fun set of specs.

Teeheehee. It helps to have things in common, right? XD

Thank you. I went searching yesterday but I couldn't find it - probably because I don't go to GOS so I'm completely unfamiliar there. :P There's the occasional treasure there, but neon and goth isn't really my thing, so I haven't bothered getting involved. Maybe I'll go looking again later. Do you remember what year the thread's from?

It was in last year's (2009) Secret Santa. The shared gifts are are on the Photographs thread (a little confusing, if you ask me... I would have thought they'd be archived under Pixelated, like old monthly themes). I took a quick look for them, and discovered the image is now missing, so to make things easy for you, here they are:

spiderviveka's TS3 to TS2 glasses recolours

I love that set. They're so nerdy cool.

GoS is really full of great cc, and not at all limited to gothy and neon styles. I use some of the gothy/rocker stuff on ocassion (not so much the neon), but I'm always finding great basics and Maxis-match stuff on there, too. I think you'll find it well worth a browse, especially those gift threads and the monthly themes.

Thank you so much. <3 I never would've found those.

Hmm, maybe I should give GOS a chance, then. It's just that the few threads I've browsed haven't really been my thing (I like some gothy stuff, but only if it's Maxis Matchy enough, 'cause I'm picky like that), besides some awesome things that I've usually gotten from direct links in WCIFs and such. But clearly I haven't done any extensive investigation, so next time I have some "down time", I'll make sure to do so. :)

Three bolts! Lucky women. They do look great together. I'm not familiar with Sam Thomas, I'll have to remember to check for her next time I have the game booted. I like your makeover for DJ.

What skins are you using these days? I like.

Nov. 14th, 2010 02:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, Sam's in one of the other unis. Maybe Sim State? I'm not sure.

I'm using Ale's Maxis Improved skins. They only replace the faces and change the default skins just ever-so-slightly, with nicer nose details. I love how it's not a drastic change, just a slightly improved version.

Oh cool! I didn't know about those face replacements. I could tell you weren't using the ones I use -- funny how we develop an eye for such small differences in detail.

I was out when got your nomination, bit it can be included anyways if you want to. I just closed it this morning, so it wasn't that late ... and they are so cute!! ^_^

Okay, that's great then. I didn't know if you'd still accept the nomination, but it'll be nice to have them included.

Did you get many nominations?
aledstrange
Nov. 14th, 2010 04:25 pm (UTC)
Oh yes! Considering the nomination post was only open for a lit' over a day, we have a lot. ;)

I was thinking to include only those with at least two nominations, but there are brilliant ideas in the list, so I don't want to leave anyone out. The poll will be up, most probably, tomorrow. (I'm very busy with my game this weekend, :P my hubs is out of town, so I can play in peace!! ROFL!!)

Ooh, they make a cute couple. ^^ The uberhood does need more female gay couples!

Is that Zoe in the background? And... some green dude.

I always try to work more gay couples in among the uni sims, since a lot of them come without anything specified at the start of the game. It's seems a little easier to be fexible with them than the sims in the other main hoods.

Yeah, that's Zoe, pre-makeover. And the green dude is actually the game-generated llama mascot. XD I also have an alien cheerleader (and a butler!). Those aliens really are taking over in my story.

Yeah, I agree about the uni sims, I've been doing that a little too. I tried making Max Flexor (that's such a corny name) gay last time, but he had negative bolts with everyone I tried to pair him with... then again, he never really found a female match either in previous games. Haha, he's just really boring. I think my Frances shall have to be gay, you've pretty much canonized that. :P Oh, her from Sim State... Brittany? I see her as bisexual. Probably Castor Nova, too. And Ashley Pitts and Ty... Bubbler? I've made gay, too. And gotten them together. :P

Hah, the random aliens are so appropriate in your neighbourhood. :D Alien invasion! :O

Very cute couple! I like Sam's androgynous look.
strange_tomato
Nov. 14th, 2010 02:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Sam's bio describes her as being somewhat masculine or tomboyish, and not really "getting" most girls. It seems to work with that for me, and I didn't have nearly enough androgyny in my game.

They look so good together! Sam is almost always gay in my games but I never thought about pairing her up with DJ.

They're cute. Is Sam from Fiesta Tech? I don't remember her.

Sim State (I just looked her up). She's in the bin, in the Freshman household, which also has Jared Starchild and Ty Bubbler.

Great seeing Sam again :D She married (and divorced) Orlando Bertino in my custom 'hood and I had a lot of fun playing her :)

Yep! That's a perfect match, me thinks :)
