Summary

The Death Flower (GUOS65061) is an item from the sketch era of the Gothic Universe of Shapes series. It was created on the 20th, 25th, 30th and 31st March 2015 using Faber Castell Watercolour Pencils, Adobe Photoshop CS4, and Microsoft Excel 2007. It was not created using autoshapes, being drawn and edited outside Microsoft Excel, except for the glowing effects.

It is loosely based off the Death Flower, a fictional type of flower that can be grown on a bush in The Sims 3. Although it wasn't directly supposed to be a loose re-creation of the death flower, I got the inspiration for my version of the death flower simply because I thought it seemed like something worthy for me to adopt for my Gothic Universe of Shapes.

I gave it different colours, different textures, and different effects to make it look different from the death flower featured in The Sims 3. The Death Flower was paired with the Traffic Light Cube (GUOS65059) as a 2-Item Set on the 4th April 2015. On the same day, the Death Flower was featured as part of the full house set for the sketch era.

On the 8th April 2015, the Death Flower was added to the Gothic Hall of Fame, in recognition for being one of the best shapes of the series. On the 4th May 2015, the Death Flower was featured on the May 2015 re-issue of the Sketch Era full house set. It was also included on the June 2015 re-issue of the set, on the 2nd June 2015.

On the 21st July 2015, an alternate version of the Death Flower (without the transparent stripe, which was accidentally left in the original shape) was introduced. On the 29th July 2015, both versions of the shape were included on the "The Complete Sketch Era" full house compilation set.

On the 17th August 2015, the alternate version of the Death Flower was included on the "The Absolute Best of the G.U.O.S" full house compilation set, a compilation of shapes that had been added to the Gothic Hall of Fame. The original version was also included on the "G.U.O.S, the Best of" full house compilation set, on the 26th August 2015. On the 17th February 2017, the alternate version of the Death Flower was included on "A Collection of Gothic Treasures" full house compilation set.
