Blast From The Past Blog Train



First of all I'd like to thank RD for trusting me enough to invite me to this blog train, before I had even learned how to create my own CC for Sims 3 and I had almost nothing to show for myself, this makes this post my first real official release, and it probably would have happened much later if it were not for this project. And I'd also like to thank the very talented Bau from B5Studio, who has patiently guided me through the whole process, has created a special mesh for one of the sets and has modified an original mesh by Pilar (muchas gracias Pilar tambiƩn) for the wall plates.



Vintage Maeght Posters

24 original art posters from the Maeght art gallery, most of them from the 50's and 60's, on a new mesh by Bau specially for this set. They cost 150$, preview here.

12 more Maeght posters on Bau's Japanese Woodcut mesh at B5Studio. They also cost 150$, preview here.
