Today we are celebrating Purple day. A day to remember and rejoice the lives of past sims. You can learn all about it here: Purple Day Sims. But basically it “is a day for Simmers all over the world to remember their Sims who’ve met the Grim Reaper, from the original Sims all the way through to Sims 4 Sims.”

I started making a proper memorial post with my favorite sims who are gone (Penelope Curious and Pepper White; Lemongrass, Dylan, Michelangelo, and Bane Pigglewiggle). And then I though, nah. Grimm is my favorite sim and without him we’d have no Purple Day at all. So here, I’m honoring the Grim.

This is the Sims 3 grim. This one is a bit more foreboding than the Sims 4 one. Sadly, I have no shots of the Sims 2 grim. I barely saw that one.
It’s so sad when the ghosts plead.
My first sighting of the Sims 4 death. This is pre-legacy.
The Reaper in Action
Reaping. First sighting of the purple spirit glow.
Would death like a rose?
Flirting with Death.

Grim takes my legacy founder, Lemongrass Pigglewiggle.
The reaper leaps into the air as Cason's fallen body starts to glow from within.

Death comes knocking.

Boris please for his mother, Dylan.
01-05-15_12-53 AM
Boris’s wife’s pleas when it’s Boris’s turn also fall on Death’s deaf ears.
Dylan pleads with Grim in the Garden, Topher lies beside them.
As do the pleas of Boris’s daughter.
04-27-15_5-03 PM-2
And Grim ignores the please of Dylan’s daughter’s wife.
05-17-15_11-42 PM
Finally, Dylan’s son, Meteor, manages to sway Death’s no-life stance.

And thus at gen 7 we finally get to see the resurrection animation.
05-17-15_11-43 PM-3
Rebirth! The soul returns.
05-17-15_11-44 PM
Pretty sure this much happiness causes Grim nausea.

Grim cares not if kids are present. (Little Luthor watched his father die)

Have to get rid of the tension some how. Grim has Blickblock mastered!
07-24-15_9-20 PM-3
Grim even works on vacation.

Grasping the soul.

Grim enjoys a spa day. I’m not sure the masseuse agreed.
10-23-15_10-58-46 PM
The soul is a lot less colorful in the daytime.
10-23-15_10-57-04 PM
Where death’s shadow falls.
10-23-15_11-08-24 PM
Pampering Grim.
10-23-15_11-13-21 PM
Death and Life. The Circle continues.
11-09-15_12-43-55 AM
A beautiful day in the park.
04-28-15_2-18 AM
Then Grim is gone, in a puff of smoke.

Check out my short story about Grim: Last Breath.


Most of these shots are from my Pigglewiggle Legacy
