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.
Hi,
Today I upload something a bit different. I tried Tiggerypum's and HystericalParoxysm's great BodyMeshing Tutorial and incredibly it worked - at least after the 4th time, when I noticed I hadn't put the Mesh into my downloads-folder! *claps hand to forehead*

There are actually two Meshes:

- the graduation robe for adult and young adult females (taken from UNI and converted to a normal outfit)
- a longer version of the graduation robe, also for adult and young adult

The graduation Mesh comes only with one recolour from the game.
The long robe Mesh comes with a black recolour by me.
The third file contains two graduation recolours for the long robe.

I did these because there are so few female robe meshes - and if there already is on in the game, why not use it?
Of course you are allowed to recolour, that's what I did them for! Just link back to this thread for the long Robe Mesh. The graduation Mesh (the short one) can be included with your recolours.

Hope you like them and if you do, don't forget to push the thanks button or leave a comment

Look here to get the male, child and teen versions.

*Update*
I edited the robes to show up in elder-catalog too. Just put the updated.zip into your downloads folder and overwrite the original files.
The zip includes a YA-Elder version of the long black robes and two new recolours (Maxis-black graduation gown and long robe)
Edit: Eliza Blaine wanted a black graduation robe for elders. Here it is: *points to gradrobe_black.zip*

I adore these new robes Mia, it's what we HP sim fans have been waiting for!!

I don't think the mesh in the Midsummer Night's Dream collection is a mod quite like yours, I think it's an entirely new mesh, where as you've just changed the alpha mesh a little - so I think you might need to do the same with the male graduation robes

thank you so much!!!

Yes it may be an entirely new mesh, but in the back, where the hood is hanging down, it looks nearly the same as the graduation mesh.
Though when I think of it, it doesn't work for young adults. Maybe I'll do the male version too then.

you can still pm me with requests and stuff...only i'm not very often logged in at the moment...
busy with real life, try later again ;)

I would be greatful for a male version of this mesh! :D

I would be very grateful for a teenage version of this mesh - for my 'Harry Potter' sims who don't want to have uniform underneath their robes like they do in the film!
(since when does it mention in the books that they have uniform underneath anyway?!)
Thank you for this mesh for adults as well, it looks really nice!

Sweet! I've been waiting for someone to do this for the longest time! Perfect for my Hogwarts simmies. Thanks a lot!

I was thinking the same thing - in the books, they're supposed to wear plain black working robes if you pay attention to the letters... not coats over uniforms like in the movies... so these are much more appropriate Thanks!

"Possibly."

Oh, I never noticed that! Sorry about that, you're right, they do look the same (the Monk and Graduation mesh). Apologies

Dunno if I can do this, I haven't got much practise. But anyway I'll try it in the next 29 days! (Milkshape is only a trial version)

Oh, and it's nice to hear there are people on this site, who like the books better than the films! :D

Very good, thanks!!
I searched quite a long time for clothing to use in my Hogwarts neighbourhood and this robe was the really best !
I hope you will create a male`s robe in this way soon!

Thanks, this looks great! Would it be possible for you to convert this for teenagers?

Good news amzy829 and Misfitrocker!
I spent most time today fiddling with the teenage versions. I'll upload them tomorrow together with the male version

As much as I like to be thanked, but I didn't do most part of the mesh. I just pulled down the hem of the graduation robe :D

As said in the male-robe treat, I realy love them. Somebody has asked for a recolor, I did two, one in green and one in blue, with a white collar. If you allow it to me, I'll try to set it online, in the hope that they'll accept it. (The last thing I tried was not good enough).

Of course you may recolour them Just link back here for the mesh.
I didn't know they actually checked the uploads before ... well, uploading them. I thought they only tagged bad ones afterwards.

Are the Female Robes supposed to show up for Elders? Because I just downloaded them yesterday I think, and While they show up for adults, they won't show up for my elders? Sniffles!!!

I'm SO SO sorry, Eliza. You must think nothing I do works.
When updating this thread I included the pictures, but forgot to put up the zip-file. Download the new file and I assure you everything will work just fine

I know I already disappointed you with the long table. Maybe you'll forgive me when I update the table to work with the base game. I found out how to do this and will upload tonight or tomorrow.
Would be great if you tested it for me and I hope I don't forget to upload the zip-file then

I would be more then willing to test the table, and you do not disappoint me at all, sometimes things just wont work, or we make mistakes, we are after all only human, thank you so much for updating this for the elder females, and I'll be looking for the table to try it out!! *(hugs)*



*****EUREKA***** the table works wonderfully so far so good!!! But I have one small question about the robes for females, is the grad robe supposed to show up in BLACK for elder? because all that's showing up grad robe wise for my elders is the faded one!!!

Hey Eliza, you notice everything do you? Maybe I should send you my creations BEFORE uploading, so I wouldn't have to do all the updates

No seriously, I didn't do any black recolour of the grad robe, but I'm at it right now and will upload in a few minutes
