Meet Marina Kelly, a teenager so sensible you'll swear she was genetically engineered. Marina started life as a (rather older) sim of one of my written characters, Marich; a capable, resilient barmaid in a traditional Tolkeinian fantasy world. Marina doesn't seem to share a great deal with this several-times-removed ancestor, but looks, perhaps, are deceiving.

She may be young, but Marina already has plans for making it big. She knows she can do whatever she wants - and that's precisely what she intends to do. Her ambitious nature is only strengthened by her life so far; having grown up with far more responsibility than any child should, she already knows how to run a household and spend frugally, and figures the same principles can only apply even more beneficially to her vague future business plans.

Marina is naturally quiet: not from a lack of confidence - lord knows she doesn't lack that - but from a fundamental feeling that it's far harder to say something you'll regret with your mouth shut. Unfortunately, this does rather restrict her ability to flirt - it is, after all, so very easy to end up regretting flirting with someone.

When the occasion arises, Marina is a fantastic cook. She doesn't necessarily enjoy it all that much... but a girl like Marina knows to cherish a talent, whatever it is. Perhaps this one will fit into her rise to success somehow - she's not yet quite sure how, though.

I know the fashion is for CC-free sims, but screw fashion. Marina uses a few items of CC; most are optional, though, just in case you're some kind of non-CC-using-freak. Some items are included in the .rar file, so you don't have to download them - see below.

All of Marina's clothes are basegame, but her everyday bracelet is from Late Night. If you don't have Late Night, it will be replaced with a random basegame bracelet. She is packaged with a default skin, so no shiny black monsters will be popping up here.

Very necessary CC:
  • Kitamura hair by Anubis360
  • Eyebrow 14 by Evie. These are no longer available on Evie's site, and so are included with Evie's gracious permission.

Recommended CC:
  • Luxor lipshine by daluved1
  • All included CC (except the eyebrows, which are Very Necessary) - see list below

My defaults, if you want Marina looking exactly the same in your game:
Sliders used (needed if you want to edit Marina's face in CAS):
Custom Content Included:
- Short nailpolish accessory by Aikea Guinea
- Eyebrow 14 by Evie
- Grace Earrings - Nested Wires by whiterider
- Winged eyeliner - Sweet by emmzx

Additional Credits:
Many thanks to the guys in CFF; Ari, Gincgo, ameenah.n.y, MzzUnvrs, malibibic, Jaylo and piggypeach. Special thanks to the five different people who all said she looks like Noomi Rapache, whoever that is .

Thanks also to the guys in #create who helped me out right at the beginning... even if I have forgotten who, precisely, you were.

The poses Marina is striking in the pics are by traelia, D3N1ZFTW, Pammie and dill.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
