I'm actually a little rusty on things, but this Maxis Taste dare caught my imagination and I had to give it a try. Of course, I couldn't just take pictures. I had to add a little story to it...

"Come on, Sis!" The girl with the hat grinned and gesticulated wildly, "We're off to SSU so we might as well get makeovers! It'll be a sisterly thing to do!"

The other girl just continued to frown.

"I mean, come on! Do you really want to go to college in clothes that are WAY out of date?"

The other girl sighed, relenting just a little.

The girl in the hat grinned, realizing she'd won, "Yay! After all, our expansion pack came out like, totally years ago. We're so far out of fashion at this point." Grabbing her sister's hand, she practically skipped into the salon.

"Welcome to Bella Caliente! We're here for all your beauty needs." Dina rushed over, greeting the customers as soon as the door jingled open. In the background, Nina just watched with a bemused expression.

The girl in the hat grinned, "Hi ma'am! We're looking.."

Dina held up her finger, interrupting her, "Let me guess!" She regarded the girls for a thoughtful moment before she gave them a radiant smile, "I bet you're about to embark on the biggest journey of your young lives and need a new look before heading off to university!"

As the girl in the hat gasped in delight and began babbling her agreement to that assumption, her sister sighed and rolled her eyes.

Quickly, the two girls were ushered over to the two makeover chairs. Dina narrated the whole journey, "First we'll tackle hair and makeup, then move over into clothing choices. I promise you that by the time we're done, you'll feel like completely new Sims!"

Nina smiled at the enthusiastic girl in her salon chair, "And what did you have in mind? Do you want to keep the hat, or are we looking to try something completely new?"

"Oooh! No, let's get rid of the hair. I thought it was awesome at first, but I totally have hat hair all the time and I'm so tired of that. Let's go with something completely new and awesome. Color! I totally need color. And patterns! Not in my hair, but just in general. I want to look cool! Cool is the new cool!"

Keeping her amusement to herself, Nina nodded as the girl babbled on. This one was going to be easy.

"Alright, dear!" Dina smiled brightly, "Let's start with your hair. You've got such beautiful cheekbones, but these bangs just make them seem too severe. Let's soften this up."

The glare on the girl's face gave Dina just a moment's hesitation before the older woman grinned and got to work despite any silent protests.

A couple of days later, Sim State University's newest students surveyed their new domain.

"Aw come on, Sis! Can't you at least admit I was right now? You look great, I look awesome!" The girl who used to wear a hat pleaded with the other young woman.

Crossing her arms, the other was silent for a long time before she finally admitted, "Okay, maybe you were right."

Both of these downtownie teens were sent to Uni with my current crop of students, so when I saw the Maxis Taste dare, I immediately thought of both of them. They both have a unique look that's not from just one standard face, so they're nice to grow up and bring into the extended family of my hood. (Well, that is if I ever get back into playing again... :})

Hope this was as fun for you as it was for me!

lol Awesome. :D
I love how you worked around using any names. XD They are both actually quite pretty it turns out!

That was partially because I couldn't remember which names they had in my hood. :) They both have personalities, but their names haven't cemented themselves in yet. :)

This was so good - the makeovers are perfect. And I like how you put it to a little story :)

Thank you! Even if I'm not putting it out there as a story, the story still comes into my head. :)

They look great! I have to say, the hat girl has always been awesome. :)

I love that so many of the downtownies don't have standard faces. Hat Girl really struck me when I gave her a makeover on how pretty she is. :)

Awesome! Also they are some of my favorite downtownies.

I love the makeovers! The fact that the Caliente sisters gave them makeovers is a really awesome idea.

Glad you're back on the swing of things.

Glad to see you around!

The makeovers look great, both of the girls are actually quite pretty and their new looks show that clearly. Good to see the Caliente sisters, too. :)

Lovely makeovers for the Tricou townie girls. :D I love how you used the Calientes to make them over! I like to have Dina own a boutique too when I play Pleasantview.

They look so cute! Those two are actually my two of my favorite townie teen girls! :)
