[sticky post]The Big Trade-Off

You know all the "comment and I make you a Sim"-posts that's been going around? The ones that in some cases evolved to including more things than Sims? Well, something that's popular and (above that) fun to do deserves to get some attention. In this case I figured a community would be a good way to go. This is The Big Trade-Off. Dedicated to requests in forms of trading items with each other. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner on creating or have done it for years - anyone is welcome to participate. How will this work then? Well, first of all you need to become a member so go do that. The goal is that there when this gets started will be at least one running post at all times where members trade items with each other (more info will be found under the cut). If this goes the way I hope there will be events, challenges and contests laying ahead ^__^

The Big Makeover-Challenge of Summer 2014
Garfield mail

For those that have been with this community since the beginning might recognise this challenge - indeed, we have done this before - two years ago - and we decided to bring it back! We had loads of lovely entries last time. Just scroll down to the comments and look at all the awesome sims people made!

Under the cut you will find five different sims, with different genetics. It's up to you to pick one sim and make them over, in whatever style you like. However, that wouldn't be much of a challenge and the idea is here to make a piece of custom content specifically for this sim. You can think of a piece of makeup, clothing, hair, or maybe even an entire skinblend if you're feeling creative. You can make an entire set, or just a single recolour, it's all okay! As long as you created it for this makeover. This special piece of cc will then be shared along with your pictures and made over sim.

Along with the sims and the rules, there is a small participation prize under the cut.

Amount of Participants I Want: 1
What I'd Like to Receive: I'm not fussy! - Here's some general ideas though. (If it's retro I will love you forever.)
I use Pooklet hair textures, Goat/iCad wood, Anna's & Poppet's colours and Lilith skinblends.
Bodyshop - Clothing for adults and children, 3t2 Store clothing conversions - I want my hands on that Jazz Age Wear set so bad, Pooklet'd versions of any of these, Nosemasks, 3t2 Hair conversions.
Objects - Clutter! Lots and lots of clutter! Any decorative stuff is nice, object recolours
Build - Walls/Floors, Cornice fencing, plants
Lots - No larger than 2x2, I like them teeny!

Trade Off - Dark_Moon - Closed
What I Can Make: Buy mode stuff mainly, object conversions from TS3 and other games if I can get my hands on the meshes. Recolors of buy or build stuff. I can manage clothes, age-conversions, shoeswaps, adding morphs or separates and sometimes even converting from TS3.
My General Style: Mostly maxis match furniture but with nicer textures or worst from wear (I think that the expression). Pooklet hair colors. I have two 'hoods a modern one and a medieval-fantasy one.
Amount of Participants I Want: 4.
What I'd Like to Receive:
- Clothing or hair conversions from TS3, retextures of hairs for both genders Pooklet's v2-textures or Nymphy's wavy texture, I would loved some streak hairs in specific color combos. Or some Skysims hairs pooklet.
- Industrial looking furniture
- Lots residential,
apartments or community in small or medium sizes, toddlers and kids stuff are always welcome.

worn retextures/recolors of furniture, maxis or CC. For example BB's awesome sets, Anne's modular seating. Maxis furniture the neon bar, neon serve, 52 Pick Up card Table, or some of the BG sofas...
- Pretty much anything that looks sort of worn or post-apocalyptic.
- Or that would fit in medieval or fantasy setting.
- Some distress recolors of clothing would be cool too.
- S
eparates, tops and/or bottoms, for any age and gender. Appropriate for any category it gives more versatility if I just mix and match the Sims wardrobe from separates..
- Brick and wood, walls and floors.

Or anything you feel like making, I am not picky.

I can't words, so I quote from Tumblr:
I have been debating with myself whether it’d be terribly bad manners if I asked someone else to do a task for me I could do myself, but terribly dislike, and in turn offer to make something for them. I know passing on boring tasks to someone else is basically “not nice”, but I guess other people might not mind them as much as I do?

Basically, if you ever wanted something for your sims, but would have needed a mesher, this is the time. ;)
