The Gender Bend Challenge!

by Kymber

I was tagged a while back by Amy to do this challenge. I apologize for publishing this post so much later. It was a lot of fun to do. I wanted to get a different pic of Matt but I don’t have time. So, here it goes “as is.” 😀

In this challenge, I did not change any facial features even though I wanted to really badly! lol What I changed: hairstyle, makeup, clothing.

As far as tagging goes, if you have not been tagged, please do this because I love seeing the characters like this. 🙂

Thank you again for the tag, Amy!

Blue looks a lot like her father.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:24 am

I thought so, too! I think his cheeks look like Chrissy, but I see a lot of Leo there, too.

Fibijean June 4, 2018 - 8:20 am

Blue looks just like Leo Jr. and Holden clearly takes after his mother!

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:26 am

Hiya, Fibi! I miss you and I’m glad you stopped in. <3 I was so busy comparing boy-Blue to Leo, I didn’t think to put her next to Leo Jr. But I think you’re right! 😀

dandylion240 June 4, 2018 - 8:58 am

I think Blue looks a lot like her dad with dark hair. I miss Leo 🙁
Matt looks good male or female.

audreyfld June 4, 2018 - 10:26 am

The most striking one is Blue. You don’t realize how much she looks like her Dad until you change them.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:35 am

Thank you, Audrey. 🙂 I couldn’t believe how boy-Blue looked! I think he has Chrissy’s cheeks but I thought for the most part, she looked like Leo.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:33 am

Thank you so much. 🙂 Oh, boy, do I miss Leo, too!I think Matt looks good either way, too. Xalen, on the other hand, well not so great as a girl. lol

NotJustaBook June 4, 2018 - 9:32 am

Matt makes for an extremely lovely lady! Xalen… Xalen belongs in the realm of male characters who are better as males because he’s just too manly to look good as a woman… (sorry Xalen). He can hang out with Lady Carlo, lol 😛

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:34 am

Thank you, Louise! 🙂 I think so, too! It surprised me when I saw him as a girl. But it was the good kind of surprise. lol

He can hang out with Lady Carlo. hahahaha Oh my, sounds interesting. 😀

Rosie June 4, 2018 - 11:41 am

Oh wow, Blue looks just like her dad! Good thing she did come out a girl, otherwise we’d be calling her Leo Jr.! XD

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:36 am

Thank you, Rosie! 🙂 Oh, that had me in stitches! Otherwise we’d be calling her Leo Jr. LOLOLOL

loladiamond01 June 4, 2018 - 11:48 am

Marty is super similar to her dad!
And I would love to see Memphis and Leo, too, just so we could get the whole squad of heirs 😀
I agree with Louise, Xalen looks MUCH better as a man.
I don’t think Blue looks just like Leo. That nose she definitely got from Chrissy.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:39 am

Oh yes, I will Memphis and Leo for sure. 😀 That sounds like fun! I will get on that after I finish up The Inheritance’s first chapter.

Thanks for the suggestion!

socallucyfan June 4, 2018 - 1:29 pm

I have to agree that Xalen looks better as a male. Matt makes a better looking woman than I thought he would (because he has such masculine features).

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:42 am

I have to agree with your agreement that you are right about Xalen! LOL I didn’t think girl-Matt would look as good as she does.

socallucyfan June 5, 2018 - 1:23 pm

Matt has such masculine features, that don’t always translate well for females. But he totally surprised me. 🙂
PS- I sent you a message

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 1:26 pm

He surprised me, too. 🙂

Okay! Awesome! I’ll read it now.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 1:30 pm

Where did you send your message? I can’t find it. lol

socallucyfan June 5, 2018 - 1:32 pm

I sent it through your blog.
I can tell you here, it’s not private or anything. I just wanted to let you know that chapter 5.6 came through my reader right after 5.5 did. There are only pictures, and you can’t leave a comment. That is why I sent the message. Your chapter list doesn’t have 5.6 being posted until next week.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 1:34 pm

Oh, I see. I wonder why I didn’t get your message?

Anyway, yes, that was an accident. I still can’t see very well and only meant the one chapter to be published. I flubbed it all up. LOL

socallucyfan June 5, 2018 - 1:36 pm

It happens. 🙂
I just wanted you to know. I hope you feel better soon. Did they say when you will be fully healed?

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 1:44 pm

Thank you so much. <3 They’ve ruled out a lot of different things that can cause a sudden change in eyesight, which is good. But in the meantime, they are changing some meds I take to see if one of the new ones is causing this.

amyqueen June 4, 2018 - 2:43 pm

Aww yours came out quite wonderfully 😀 Some of mine were horrific, haha. I agree with Jowita that I’d have liked to have seen Memphis and Leo as well~ With the exception of Xalen, everyone looks like they could be a regular character XD Thanks for doing it!

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:44 am

Thank you and thank you also for the tag. Memphis and Leo will be next up. 😀 Thank you so much for the suggestion. Everyone says, “With the exception of Xalen.” LOLOL And it’s so true!

Marjorie Flo Watts June 4, 2018 - 4:17 pm

It’s interesting how versatile some of the features are! I still think Holden looks like Xalen more than like Marty, and I never realized how much Blue looked like her dad! This would be fun to do with some of my sims. =D

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:48 am

Thank you, Marj! <3 Remember when I did that side by side matchup of Xalen and Holden? They look almost identical except that Holden does seem to have Marty’s cheekbones. lol

I think you should do this with your sims, for sure.

Simsered June 4, 2018 - 5:46 pm

Omg I love these lol. Makes me wish I had characters to genderbend! When I start writing again I’ll definitely have to revisit this challenge. 😂
Xalen does not make a pretty woman haha. But the rest look decent. Matt makes a surprisingly attractive woman!

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:53 am

I’m so glad you love these, thank you. I think your genderbend would be amazing@

Poor Xalen, not getting any love. 😛 😀 I thought Matt won this challenge. 😀

Jes2G June 4, 2018 - 6:43 pm

I always knew if you put a beard on Marty you’d get Matthieu

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 7:56 am

Hahahahaha!! How did I not see that until now?

Jes2G June 5, 2018 - 8:02 am

Really? As soon as she aged up to YA, I was like wow…she looks exactly like her dad!

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 8:08 am

It’s cool you always thought that. Here I was, thinking she looked like Chrissy. 😀

Jes2G June 5, 2018 - 8:11 am


Jes2G June 5, 2018 - 8:03 am

Speaking of him…I miss them! I hope we see them soon.

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 8:09 am

Yes, for sure. 😀

Jes2G June 5, 2018 - 8:11 am


sempreviva June 5, 2018 - 5:18 am

Ooh la la, female Matt is a bombshell! 😍 (but I don’t think she would appreciate that comment much, lmao)!
I totally agree with everyone about Xalen – he’s a fine looking man, but as a woman… meh. Too much masculinity there! 😁
Blue looks so much like her dad, it’s crazy! <3

Kymber June 5, 2018 - 8:03 am

I thought girl-Matt was, too! I was pleasantly surprised about how he turned out. LOL You’re probably right about him.

With Blue, I can see both Leo and Chrissy. I think she has Chrissy’s cheeks.

greencatssims June 6, 2018 - 6:32 am

What fun 🙂

Kymber June 6, 2018 - 8:49 am

Are you going to do it? I would love to see! 😀

greencatssims June 8, 2018 - 7:05 am

Oh I hadn’t thought about that! I could gender swap a couple of my Snordwich residents I guess–might be interesting 🙂
You’ve styled your sims so beautifully.

Kymber June 8, 2018 - 7:35 am

Thank you. 🙂 It’s a fun challenge. 😀

heatherfeather19 June 6, 2018 - 9:37 am

Everyone looks great, honestly! I especially like how Matt and Marty turned out.

Kymber June 6, 2018 - 11:08 am

Thank you! 🙂 I had so much fun doing this challenge. Matt and Marty turned out really well, I think. Blue’s alternate is a bit of a baby face. LOL And Xalen! His face belongs on a man. haha

Simsophonique June 6, 2018 - 6:27 pm

Male Marty is totally her xD

Kymber June 6, 2018 - 7:01 pm

LOL Yes! I think so, too! 😀

Invisibly Me June 6, 2018 - 8:35 pm

Wow, what a difference make-up, hair & clothes can make!! x

Kymber June 7, 2018 - 8:14 am

Right? I was surprised about how they turned out.

freja64 June 14, 2018 - 5:24 pm

Female Xalen looks really good! This is such a fun challenge!

Kymber June 14, 2018 - 5:32 pm

LOL Thank you! 😀 Consider yourself tagged if you want to do it. 😀

freja64 June 14, 2018 - 6:30 pm

Thanks! I’ll try to find the time this weekend! It’s finals at school and I’m a judge at the orals, so busy busy…

Kymber June 14, 2018 - 6:45 pm

Oh my, that does sound busy! 🙂 Wishing you the best and can’t wait to see what you do with your characters. 🙂

freja64 June 20, 2018 - 5:11 pm

See, it’s already the 20th and I’m struggling with time!

Kymber June 20, 2018 - 7:29 pm

LOL No worries. <3 <3
