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.
Lord, I hope I did this right. This was a lot harder than the Batman Ears. This is basically the vampire cape from Nightlife, with the collar removed, the bottom part cut off, and as an accessory. It's far from perfect, I'm sure, but someone needed to do it. I actually said in a SynapticSim thread that I would teach myself to mesh just so I could do this one project, and I did. So I hope you all like it. Sorry for the lack of color. I made this for you guys to play with. Have at it!

Children, teenagers, and all the adults ages can wear this cape. It can also be worn with other accessories (Thank you Dr Pixel, for everything you ever said about accessory meshing). Everything was made by either Maxis or me - well, all Maxis, I guess. I have University, so be aware of that. I do not have Nightlife; I know a guy who does and pulled the mesh from his game. He's the one that got me started playing this in the first place. And now I do this instead of English homework. Thanks a lot, Sean!

Coming soon(ish): PAF's capes as accessories and capes to fit the common muscular body meshes. Plus more random superhero accessories.

You know what else I should do? Get me an avatar.

Oh wow, thank you so much, especially for making it available to both genders! I've so been wanting the male vampire outfit for my female sims, and at least now, with this, I can give them the cape. Plus it might look nice on my fantasy sims sometime. :D

What a creative solution to a problem I've seen mentioned like, a hundred times. I can use this myself. I have no clue how to mesh, but I love to recolor things. WHEE! Don't worry though, I don't share.. I'm not good enough.

PEACE

First of All, THANK YOU SO MUCH! (Yes, that's shouting)

I have been waiting for this since Sims 2 was released. You have just opened the doors on countless characters for me to make now.

I had just begun to look into making something like this, but, I felt completely and utterly overwhelmed when I started trying to follow a tutorial. From that little experience, I now have so much respect for people like you, Funnyycats, and countless others who work tirelessly to share things like this with our community. You all are amazing. Like I've said before, I'll stick to making the costumes, and leave the heavy lifting to you guys. Y'all truly ROCK!

Again, thank you so much for this. You've made my day! Too bad I have to go to bed now, after a long night of work. I can't wait to get to play with this. You are amazing!

No, totally recolor it and post it here. That's what I made it for. Even if someone just wants to put out a lot of basic colors, like the red varpunen wants. I could do that myself, and I just might if no one else does, I'm just concentrating on the meshes right now. But this is for everyone: Recolor away!!

I had originally planned for them to be longer, but then I either had to get them to follow the motion of the legs, which looked weird and isn't how a cape would behave in real life at all, or just let the legs cut through the cape whenever the sim moved. So I tried to compromise by taking off a little of the bottom. But I'm still pretty new to this meshing (this is my seond mesh) so maybe someday I'll figure it out.

Shorter version, sure. That would actually be really easy. And YES, recolor as much as you want, even if you don't upload it.

I love it. One parrot avatar asked for a longer cape and the other parrot avatar asked for a shorter one.

I love these.. I have people in my game just waiting for these.... When I get some recolors, I'll let you know.

(around an 8 month old, and actually PLAYING the game, may be a bit, tho..)
