Jelenedra's Howl of Howl's Moving Castle

As I was watching Hayao Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle I got inspired to make a series of sims for it. Here is my first attempt at Howl. I made him some loverly clothes and even created a whole new skintone for his "demon form." The only thing I was unhappy about was the fact that I could not make his earrings. He just doesn't seem the same without them. Anyways, without further ado, I bring you Howl.

As cool as that looks, I wish I could download it. I love Howl. Unfortunately, it tells me it requires EP data not installed...and I have that hair mesh, so it's not that. Do you have OFB? Because that's the only pack I don't have.

Hmm, I'm pretty sure that I used a NL base for his clothing, but I could be wrong. Lemme check.

Yep, his clothes are from NL. I didn't use anything from OFB. So that is really weird.

He's sooo cute! I loved this movie and wanted to do Howl so bad, but I am horrible at making Sims. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Any chance you can make the young girl and the little boy?

Just because you can do it? Should you? Hell yes!

Young girl? You mean Sophie? I didn't consider her to be that young, but yes, I made her. Currently in moderation, so keep your eyes open. I was thinking about a Markl, but I need to find a proper hair mesh.

Only reason I said young, is for the life of me I couldn't remember her name.

I Love this movie! You know the hair mesh from guppysims, that looks like Yuna's I thought that it might look like his hair if it was for males:

Hey, it's Howl. =D Thanks for making him, but I have a question: which eyebrows and eyes do we need to Howl? I have enough custom content in my game, and I just need the specifics if it's possible. XD;

It's a pity there isn't a better hairmesh to go with

I believe I included everything except for the hair meshes. His skintone and eyes (except for Demon Howl) SHOULD be genetically sound. If you let my files overwrite any that you already have that is. So his blue eyes won't dominate over Sophie's brown. Not sure if my altering of the genetic material on my custom hairs will pass down through the Simspack, as I didn't include the mesh, so if someone wants to test....

Demon Howl's skin, is VERY dominant, so be careful having children with him. ^.^

I also love Howl. One of my favorite movies.

My favorite is the Howl with black hair. That's the one that gets all the crazy eyes in the movie and then gets that loverly scene in the field of flowers...

I do, but it's confusing to me as I didn't use any OFB items in creating him. (Well, I bogarted the pants texture from an OFB outfit, but the clothing I put it on is from Nightlife. If you need me to, I'll go home and make a "clean" Howl and just shove him in some default clothes from the OG. Do you have a preference as to which hair/skin I package him with?

Woah, sorry it took me so long to reply. XD; But no, it's ok. I don't want you to do the extra work just for that. (And besides, I could wait until I get OFB. >>; )

He looks pretty cool. Kinda a pity that we don't have meshes for his overcoat. *sigh* I do miss my Sims1 Howl and Sophie, so I'm glad there are some good looking replacements for the Sims2! Only downside is that I have to wait for our new computer before I can play with them. ;_;

On the movie: Didn't mind it myself, but as a book fan, it did make me weep for all the inconsistancies. ;_;

Hey, I can't download him either! And I have OFB! Except I haven't played it yet...
