As the title suggests… I GOT GET FAMOUS!!! I played it for 2 hours last night and so far I love it.
The first thing I did was move Alina, Dexter and Mayor Whiskers into the cheapest house in Del Sol Valley. I have to admit I was a bit bummed by the small world size and lack of houses, but oh well. Here is their house:
House? Check. What’s next on the list? Getting hitched, of course! Can’t have Alina and Dexter living in sin – what would the neighbours say? It’s not as if they’ve ever woohooed before… In a bush…As teenagers. Ahem.
I had Alina pop the question:
They then got married straight away (what venue is more romantic than a kitchen?!). The reverend Mayor Whiskers presided over the ceremony.
Having “put a ring on it” and by “it”, I of course mean Dexter, I had the both of them join careers. I knew Alina was destined for stardom, so I had her become an actress. I also swapped her aspiration to “Master Actress”. Meanwhile, Dexter joined the style influencer career and I changed his aspiration to “World Famous Celebrity”.
Venessa was the only sim to come over in the welcome wagon, but I was excited to see her! Does she remind anyone else of Yuki Behr?
Dexter interviewed Venessa about her outfit. Great icebreaker, Dexter. Not.
Then, we – I mean they – made a bubba
Alina telling Dexter that she’s pregnant:
Oh don’t look so shocked Dexter. You know how babies are made!
Alina secured an audition to be in a commercial, so I had her practice her acting.
Then, Alina met a proper celebrity and behaved like a right belle-end (just realised nobody outside of the UK will get this joke because bellend is a very British insult).
Alina: Can I touch you?
Alina professing her love to this celebrity who appears to just be a random townie that the game decided was Famous. I don’t know why, since I turned off sims being created with fame in game options.
Alina asked for the celebrity’s autograph, while the woman behind them stood watching with a somewhat creepy smile in her face.
Alina got a selfie with the celebrity while the unknown woman behind them photobombed. Maybe she was stalking the celebrity?
Alina got the gig doing a commercial for soap. Unfortunately, she was halfway through her third trimester at the time. Oh well, I made her work anyway!
Getting her makeup done:
Erm. That doesn’t look so good. Thankfully the makeup artist fixed her eyeshadow!
They also gave her blonde hair, which I actually think suits her!
There was another style mishap when Alina got dressed in a hotdog costume by another stylist. Can we just take a moment to appreciate how even in the hotdog outfit, she still has a baby bump?
Please don’t go into labour now, Alina, you’re about to finally get your big break (and by that, I do not mean your waters are about to break – I hope).
Alina made it to the stage and at first things went really well. She did her wheel spin (wow how amazing is the scenery?)…
And promoted the product…
… But then, disaster struck:
And, there’s really no other way to say this: Alina PISSED herself. On stage. And on camera. I feel bad, this is my fault. I forgot that heavily pregnant sims’ bladder need decays more quickly.
Despite this little accident, Alina was promoted to guest star, which is level 4 of the acting career (She started on level 3, since she got an A in school).
Dexter is currently a wearable wordsmith (style influencer 3).
Almost as soon as Alina got home, she went into labour and I took her to the hospital.
A baby girl was born, which the randomiser baptised Katharine. I have to admit I’m disappointed. She will be my third female heir in a row and I so wanted a boy for a change! Never mind, so long as she grows up pretty – that’s all that matters! Not shallow at all, am I?
Think pretty thoughts, Katherine.
