I was intending to post this on Friday for a birthday present because if Pippi Longstocking can give presents on her birthday, then so can I. But it's all done, and I'm posting it early. Smile

A "Savoyard" is a fan of the works of Gilbert & Sullivan, and that describes me pretty well.

Lo these manymany years ago, I made some custom paintings for my Sims to paint and hang on their walls. Four rebuilds later, I am well and truly tired of repainting them, so I learned how to recolor. Then I decided to share!

What you get are fourteen recolors of The Lady On Red, which is a basegame painting. Each recolor is a poster for a different Gilbert & Sullivan operetta -- but a classy poster, like you'd hang in the lobby. Or frame and put in your home, if (like the Sim these were made for) you are a professional operatic contralto who has performed in each and every one of these operettas. (Well, except Thespis, which was so bad that the music was recycled almost immediately, the original score was “lost,” and it was never again performed in either Gilbert or Sullivan's lifetime.)

In chronological order, the operettas are
Thespis, or The Gods Grown Old
Trial By Jury
The Sorcerer
HMS Pinafore, or The Lass That Loved A Sailor
The Pirates Of Penzance, or The Slave Of Duty
Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride
Iolanthe, or The Peer And The Peri
Princess Ida, or Castle Adamant
The Mikado, or The Town Of Titipu
Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse
The Yeomen Of The Guard, or The Merryman And His Maid
The Gondoliers, or The King Of Barataria
Utopia, Limited, or The Flowers Of Progress
The Grand Duke, or The Statutory Duel


The pictures have the title, subtitle, and the credits "Book & Lyrics by W. S. Gilbert/Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan". The writing is all in Symbol, because I had no Simlish fonts at the time and now cannot find the original files to retype the info. Each recolor is packaged separately, so you can pick and choose what you like. Also included are labelled pictures of each recolor, just in case you aren't as much of a Savoyard as I am.

The Sims in the pictures are all my Sims (born in game or created in CAS), and I did all the posing, costuming, and image manipulation.

Let the air with joy be laden, rend with songs the air above! I'm a big G&S fan, and I think the pictures for the posters look great! Smile I'm not so keen on the Symbol font, though, since I can read Greek and to me these are real letters, not just random symbols. But that's just me. Wink
