Lolita X Sims [EDITED WITH LINK TO NEW POST] 
9th-Jan-2009 04:32 pm
I'm coming out of lurking for a brief momment to tell you about a few thoughts I've had. It seems that many Lolita's here do not mind gaming as I've noticed a number of posts concerning things such as MMORPG's. So I thought to myself what about the Sims 2? It's a popular game, surely I can't be the only person who likes the Sims 2 and Lolita fashion.

 

First off I'd like to show you a few ingame pictures (Nothing special, just a few screenshots. The dresses may look a little bit odd at the bottom, but that is only because my Sims seem to enjoy mucking around and doing silly things like jumping on chairs xD):
 













Secondly, If you can't be bothered to read the below here it is in short:
* I'm planning to create a list of as many Lolita/inspired items for the sims 2 that I can find (I've found quite a lot currently). After a bit of searching I've noticed that there is a couple of old requests for Lolita Sims.
* This will involve many hours of trudging through fourms etc, so I would only like to do it if there are other Lolita liking simmers out there. So if you are interested let me know please ;D


The Way The List Will Work:
I'd like to keep it fairly simple. It will have an image of the object in question (generally most things will have more then one colour, style etc however to save space I won't post a shot of every single thing), The link to the page where you may download from and perhaps a sentence or two if I feel it is needed. For those who are new to custom content I'll attempt to find a few 'how-to install' mannuals for you, but don't be scared it's really easy once you know how.
Instead of posting a super long post on EGL that will take FOREVER to scroll through, I'll create seperate posts on my journal that will deal with the sections below. That way if you only want clothing then you only need to click on that link.

The List Will Include:
Hair: There won't be alot of hair because really you could use any hair style. It will probably include a few basic hairstyles similar to what the Lolita handbook depicts - Hime cut, Curls, and a few cute piggy tails.
Make Up: Once again there won't be alot of this because there is so much choice. It will probably include some basic/natural/doll-like inspired make up such as eyelashes and lip glosses.
Clothing: This will obviously include Lolita clothing. So far I've found OP's (based on a number of brands - Bodyline & BTSSB etc) and seperates (generally shirts and skirts). A few Lolita inspired clothing may sneak in too.
Accessories: After looking I've found a number of interesting things - Wrist cuffs, lace gloves, tiara's (perhaps for a more hime style?), head dresses, hair bows, a few necklaces that I can imagine with Gothic Lolita outfits, mini top hats, fans, parasols and brand tote bags. I'm hopping to find some bonnets as well.
Other: This made include anything that may be connected to Lolita. For example I found some Alice In Wonderland posters that were very nice. There may be nice tea sets, cute clutter (clutter is generally objects that are purely asthetic. It may include soft toys, cakes, purfume bottles, sewing equipment etc). There also may be the odd piece of furniture or a complete Sim.

Example of Lolita themed CC:
www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php
This is some Lolita dresses made by the wonderful artist 'xizarx' over at Garden Of Shadows for those who are interested.

Note:
All of the things listed will be free and not require payment to use. If there is for some odd reason something that does require payment because I cannot find an alternative then I will make sure I note that or not include it at all. Also some sites that will be listed (such as Mod The Sims 2) require membership, however this is free and requires nothing more then a user name, password and a working email address.

IMPORTANT: I claim NO credit for anything you see pictured here. I did not create any of this custom content, I simply downloaded it and made my sims with it. All of these creations belong to their original creators.

I'll post this list even if there is only one person who wants it, however if no one here is looking to combine Lolita & the sims then I won't waste your time with it. So if you want let me know ;D


Thank you very much, for letting you take up your time.

yay please do this! I love Sims 2 and there was a point of time when I was looking for lolita stuff all the time but my efforts weren't very fruitful. Nevertheless I think I've got a couple of links lying around in my home pc. will link them here when i find them.

your sims have beautiful dresses! I haven't seen those yet!
9th-Jan-2009 06:45 am (UTC)


I have this h.naoto dress and some similar ones for teens. The creator is victoriandress but I can't seem to find her anymore so I can try to find the files and upload them.

That's gorgeous!!
9th-Jan-2009 06:46 am (UTC)
I'm also in favor of this.

Yaay for loli-fied sims!
9th-Jan-2009 06:48 am (UTC)
I am so addicted to sims 2 & buy every new expansion, but i never thought of looking up lolita stuff. I can't wait for the list!
9th-Jan-2009 07:37 am (UTC)
I was just about to suggest someone do this or do it myself! I'm a big fan of Sims 2 and there is a lot of custom content for the game that claims to be lolita but isn't (miniskirt outfits and the like). This will be great.
9th-Jan-2009 08:50 am (UTC)
Haha Garden of Shadows is my second home :P (I'm Neena Needles there)

But for lolita clothing, I'm very picky about the meshes and none meet up to my standards XDD
13th-Jan-2009 07:37 am (UTC)
I'm completely unimagentive xD
And my user name is 'KunoichiKatie' there also.

Yay for Sims afrolita!
9th-Jan-2009 09:43 am (UTC)
YES! Please do!
I love Sims 2. Too bad I have a mac, and am forced to play on ps, but whatever. Maybe I'll find some crack again someday and I'd love to loli it up ^_^
Also, can't wait for Sims 3! Wheee.
9th-Jan-2009 10:20 am (UTC)
Good work and idea! I can't wait.
I've been getting into it again.
10th-Jan-2009 04:14 pm (UTC)
i am also!
by the way, twinpeaks ftw!
9th-Jan-2009 12:12 pm (UTC)
Great idea!
I'd love to know were to download stuff for my sims too, the game in itself is a little plain. But that's because I don't own any additional content. XD;
9th-Jan-2009 12:46 pm (UTC)
xD

Oh man, I used to be ADDICTED to The Sims series. I still have my games, but I lost the expansions. These dresses are adorable. Sometimes I saw those on Mod the Sims, but I've never seen the tartan dress before. If I don't have trouble reinstalling the Sims 2, I might sign up for Mod the Sims.

Is anyone looking forward to The Sims 3 (this Feb.)?
9th-Jan-2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
I was, but I dislike the realtime aspect...I want to play god :(
9th-Jan-2009 12:55 pm (UTC)
I was thinking of making a similar post myself, I would love to get some lolita content for my Sims!
9th-Jan-2009 02:02 pm (UTC)
I would definately appreciate this. I love making lolita sims, but it's so hard to find good stuff when you have to wade through heaps of minidresses labelled 'lolita'. Those dresses you posted are gorgeous, thanks a lot for the link. :D
9th-Jan-2009 11:36 pm (UTC)
*shudders*
I've been trolling through stuff like that all day. I've come across a couple of 'Gothic Lolita' outfits that look like something from a fetish shop x___x
9th-Jan-2009 02:44 pm (UTC)
Oh how I love the sims!

I've never really been able to find decent loli clothing for mine so this would be a really great idea!
9th-Jan-2009 03:01 pm (UTC)
Very interested! Please do~
9th-Jan-2009 03:09 pm (UTC)
Ohh I decorated all my Sims 2 girls in lolita too!
And I made a kodona host club in another house for them kekeke XDD

But this makes me want to play again ^^ I hear a Sims3 is coming out soon too ♥
9th-Jan-2009 04:00 pm (UTC)
They have the Sims 3 in February here.

9th-Jan-2009 04:18 pm (UTC)
lol, someone needs to do this for sims 1. i'm old school like that.
9th-Jan-2009 04:30 pm (UTC)
I do not think the people play the old game anymore when there will be the game Sims 3 that will be here very soon.
9th-Jan-2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
Your lolita clothing is some of the best I've seen for The Sims 2. n_n
9th-Jan-2009 11:38 pm (UTC)
Not mine ;P
It's from 'xizarx' over at GoS, she has some amazing things there.
9th-Jan-2009 05:07 pm (UTC)
I didn't know sims 2 had lolita clothing. that's really cool
9th-Jan-2009 05:13 pm (UTC)
That would be so great thank you very much!!
9th-Jan-2009 05:22 pm (UTC)
I know at mod the sims 2 I have some lolita clothing up, but they are from SEVERAL years ago and I'm sure they aren't very good. There is some Victorian Maiden (I was obsessed with at the time) and some meta. I think they are under the same username, heraddiction. There is also some Baby accessories on there.
9th-Jan-2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
I really love you right now *_*

I just have a few loli clothes, and I visit GoS frequently but never seen these. All of the artists' other work is amazing as well. Loli undergarments, kodona wear, and did I spot a mello and Near?

Man how could've I missed these X_X Now you've revived my want to play the sims 2 again XD It's always so complicated when you want your sims todress out of the ordinairy XD

I'm excited about the sims 3 (febuary! yay!), but then it will just be waiting for people to create downloads because the standard clothing and hair is always a bit, suckish. I really like the re-textures hair at GoS
9th-Jan-2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
Wow! I just got the sims 2 and all expansions like a few days ago no kidding. I've always loved the sims and the first thing I did was look for lolita dresses but nothing that great turned up on the internet... these ones look good though! Those face mods look like the faces from the Sims 3 xD I'll probably get into modding once 3 comes out since it's just so soon. Modding is loads of fun <3 My boyfriend taught me how to do it for ffxi and he makes me lolita clothes for my hume, so sweet ^^
9th-Jan-2009 06:16 pm (UTC)
Yay, another Sims 2 fan!

I knew there was lolita clothing for them out there, but it never seemed to look right to me, so I didn't bother. Yours look pretty well done though-
9th-Jan-2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
This is probably the nicest Lolita clothing I've found so far, it's from xizarx over at GoS.
