This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Having asked and looked for them I couldn’t find a full set of Black Parade outfits that I liked the look of so I decided to make them myself. Much thanks to this site and Faylen’s awesome tutorials on how to make clothing, for making the process less nerve wracking, and showing me how to add shadowing.

All of the outfits are based on Maxis meshes from the base game so hopefully there should be no problems with compatibility.

The outfits are modeled by the lovely Cobweb’s version of My Chemical Romance who can be found here, (isn't her Frank dreamy!)

I updated their looks mainly by changing hair colour, removing accessories and adding lashings of dark eyeliner/eye shadow.
Specifically in the case of the Gerard sim the hair is “New Roman” hair by HystericalParoxysm and can be found here, I also altered his skin tone to “Pixie Glow” by Enayla here.
The Bob sim’s hair is now BastDawn’s edit of Andie’s “Pixie Hair” found here

Shameless plug – I also have some matching objects that can be found here, here, here and here, or just click on my user name at the left to see a list of my downloads.


Terms of use: I’m not fussed what you do with the outfits or where you upload them, crediting me if you use them would be nice, but I’m not going to lose any sleep over it if you don’t. But please don't claim you made them, if someone asks - spread the love and send them here. Mainly have fun and if you do anything good with them drop me a link.
Please do not ever upload these clothes as part of a sim submitted to a paysite, and yes this includes TSR.

UPDATED 01/01/2007 – Happy New Year! Being rather picky I noticed I got a few details wrong (or not as right as they could be ) and decided to update these outfits.

Gerard’s outfit now comes with even more buttons! And the badge on his shoulder is a better image.

The lapels on Mikey’s outfit have been improved and his sleeves have had some piping added to them.

Frank’s outfit now has a cross on the left arm.

And Ray's outfit has had about 120 pixels changed - if you spot where you win the highly contested pickier than jenfold award.

Bob’s outfit remains the same – However all 5 outfits have been edited so they now appear as available for Young Adults, Adults & Elders, I’d rather have my sims trudging round in stage costume than maxis old man clothes, and now you can too!

All the updated files are named identically to the older versions so when you add them to your downloads folder they should automatically overwrite them (though I'm not entirely sure what happens if you download both sets with q-express, so just click on the updated ones.) The updated versions are in the second zip attachment strangely enough called Updated BP Outfits.

NB. If any of your sims are currently wearing the old version of the outfits in game; when you replace the old versions in the downloads folder they will revert to be wearing a default grey maxis suit when you load up the game.

To rectify this you just need to go shopping and buy the updated uniforms and then change your sims into them using the wardrobe.

Thanks to Tealia for alerting me to this. Sorry I forgot to point it out earlier!

"Welcome to the black
Parade" Lyrcs

(intro)
When i was a young boy, my father took me into the city,to see a marching band.
_____________________________________________________________
He said son when you grow up, would you be the savior of the broken and the dammed.
_____________________________________________________________
He said will you defeat them, your demons, and all the non-believers, The plans that they have made?
_____________________________________________________________
Beacause one day ill leave you A PHANTOM to lead you in the summer, to join the black parade!
_____________________________________________________________
When i was a young boy, my father took me into the city,to see a marching band.
He said son when you grow up, would you be the savior of the broken and the dammed?
_____________________________________________________________
Sometimes I get the feeling that she's watching over me, and other times I fell like I should go.
******************************************_____________________________________________________________
And through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets, and when your gone we want you all to know.
_____________________________________________________________
(CHORUS)
Well carry on, Well carry on, and through youre dead and gone believe me, Your memory will carry on, Well carry on.
_____________________________________________________________
And in my heart I cant contain it
The anthem wont explain it.
_____________________________________________________________
A world that sends you reeling, From decimated dreams, Your misery and hate will kill us all.
_____________________________________________________________
So paint it black, and take it back, Lets shout it loud and clear, Defiant to the end we hear the call.
_____________________________________________________________
To carry on, Well carry on, and though youre dead and gone believe me, your memory will carry on, Will carry on, and though youre broken and defeated, your weary widow marches.
_____________________________________________________________
On and on we carry thruogh the fears Dissapointed faces of your peers, Take a look at me, cause I could not care at, All
_____________________________________________________________
Do or die, youll never make me, Because the world, Will never take my heart, Go and try, Youll never brake me, We want it all, We want to play this part.
_____________________________________________________________
I wont explain, or say im sorry, Im unishamed, Im gonna show my scar,Give a cheer, for all the broken, listen here, because its who we are.
_____________________________________________________________
Im just a man, Im not a hero, Just a boy, who had to sing this song, Im just a man, Im not a hero, I, Dont, Care.
_____________________________________________________________
Well cary on, Well carry on, and though youre dead and gone believe me, your memory will carry on, Will carry on, and though youre broken and defeated, your weary widow marches.
_____________________________________________________________

Well Carry On

P.S could you put the drums up for download Thanks.=)

Oh, thank you so much for these, they are amazing! I downloaded them for my MCR-family, and I love them!

Though I can't say they are completely flawless, being the crazy fan I am xD
Mikeys jacket should be a little bit longer, and while he doesn't seem to have any belt in that picture, his jacket does have one, and I would've loved if it was included in the uniform...
And maybe Bob's jacket should be a little bit shorter?

But, like I said, they are awesome! Thanks for sharing these with us ^__^

While I am going to update this post soonish sorry I won't be making the changes you want. Firstly Mikey and Bob's uniforms use the same mesh and its jacket is the same fixed length, therefore I can't make Mikey's longer or Bob's shorter.

I'm aware Mikey wears a belt, and when I was making these I tried it in game and didn't like the way it looked on the sim so I didn't upload it, thus that's not happening either. However if you wish to edit the version you use in game yourself to include a belt go ahead.

When I do update I'll be adding the piping I missed to the ends of Mikey's sleeves and editing the shoulder lapels, adding a cross to the arm of Frank's uniform, and improving the badge on Gerard's uniform.

I'll also be altering the age groups that all the uniforms can be used by; I've only recently discovered how to do this and want to make the uniforms available for young adults and elders too. But yeah, not what you want sorry!

I think that happens if your sims were wearing the old outfits in game when you updated them as the game recognises the overwrite but doesn't automatically replace them in game and instead goes to a default outfit.

Try going downtown and see if the updated outfits are avilable to buy, hopefully they should be and you can get them and change outfits with the wardrobe etc.

And yes I'd still like to see a sim version of Blood if you're going to make it! :D

I realized something when I was using the clothes for the boys..

The clothing looks more eye popping to me for some reason xDD

Yeah but you should make like the open-front version too, then it'll look more realistic.

And I need your help with the video request. BADLY. Message me if possible

I might get round to making open versions but it would involve a chunk of time and some swearing at meshes and textures so it probably won't be very soon if I do.

Oh and I've pm'ed you so hopefully will hear back from you soon.
