This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I recently realised there was an error with the mesh that would only show for players who run the game with shadows on:

The flashing blue square has now been removed and the updated mesh can be downloaded below. It should have the same file name so should overwrite the faulty version.

*UPDATE* 73rd_survivor pointed out a spelling error with the catalogue description so I have corrected it now so that "mannequin" is spelt correctly. If you're not bothered with catalogue descriptions then you don't need this update. File names are the same so the new file will overwrite the old.


Hello again!
I've got a second mannequin for you today. This time its one in a dress.

This mannequin costs slightly more than my previous mannaquin at 300 simoleans. There are five recolours that I have created by recolouring an original MAXIS texture.

The colours are in a single file as well as seperate ones to make downloading easier for you. I may not do this on future uploads anymore though.

As per usual, please feel free to make and upload your own recolours but don't include the mesh. Link back here for that. Cheers.

I hope you enjoy this item in your game.

Polygon Counts:
Vertices: 1244 according to SimPE.

Once again wonderful work! I downloaded your other mannaquin and I can't wait to see if you come out with others(possibly hairstyles). but as you said in your post, that you may not upload individually each color, i think it would be fine, because it gives you more work and people can simply decide what color they want when they buy it in game its easy on everyone. Once again, GREAT JOB!

These are perfect. I am updating and tweaking my Harry Potter lots and needed a mannequin to go in the window of St. Mungo's Hospital. Since the mannequins I used before were a part of 1 of the STUFF Packs, I needed a few to use. These will be perfect for the photos! Thanks for sharing these.

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

TY, I'm doing a Spaced home and needed a mannequin for Daisy's bedroom.

Suggestion: You've spelt Mannequin wrong and it doesn't show up in the MTS2 search engine. (For me I found this by dumb luck when I went to google.) If you replace 'Mannaquin' with 'Mannequin' then more ppl will see your download. (I think.. A lot of ppl seem to have found it already.)

Thanks for pointing out the spelling error. I'll make sure I get it right in future uploads (which there will be eventually) and I may go back and alter the two existing uploads as the catalogue description will be spelt wrong in them.

The mesh has been updated today to remove a faulty shadow for players who run the game with shadows on.

This is perfect for Anju's dress model.
