Frances McCullough made a small cameo in the last chapter.  I kind of liked her look so I set up a photo shoot. An "old friend" decided to join the fun.  

The Witchs study
Set design notes: I really love clutter when I'm decorating a lot for a picture. But for story it doesn't really work for me because I like for the characters to be the focus. Too much going on in the background takes away from the action sometimes. I felt like that was happening in this particular scene. 

No I'm not going to go back and rescue the scene though. I did my best. ^_^


Frances and Phoebe are the "Instructors of the Craft" from Belladonna Cove.

Phoebe is a romance sim. I like to think she's the cool teacher. ;)

Hmm, I disagree about that. I love cluttering. It's not like you won't pay attention on it, but it isn't like It's too much of a distraction. :) Love the stuff you clutter for tour story, and I also like this stuff above! :D

Thank you. :) Clutter for clutter's sake in a story isn't ideal, in my opinion. To me, it's more important for a pic to be well composed and well designed so that there is focus on what's important. I love adding a lot of details to my lots but I don't want the background elements to be too distracting unless it's needed. That's just me though. :)

Whaha. Now you've said that, I'm wondering... I never saw your pictures as being too empty, so I guess I'm content with your way of cluttering too. =) Btw, such a cool picture of Rowan! Really awesome! <3

No bother at all! It is a Maxis mesh, and I'm pretty sure it was from the Sims store, which is gone now. :p But I'm sure you can find it at MATY or insim (maybe?). Thanks. :)

I completely agree about the clutter. It's not really my style so I don't use a ton of it even on a photoshoot of a room, but it drives me crazy when I'm doing a story shot. It's always poking up where it shouldn't be. I end up spending a lot of time moving it around or taking it out. Anyway, your shot is gorgeous!

Both Frances and Phoebe are wonderful.

Yeah it's fun to decorate a room, but when the set pieces work against you then it just gets frustrating. I agree!

Thank you very much!
