This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
I created this pose set for the June/July 2017 Bi-Monthly Theme "Performing Arts". It contains a total of 12 poses, each with a left- and right- hand variation. I try not to make the poses depend on a specific object/accessory, but in this case I could only find one hand-held microphone option. So you will pretty much need that exact microphone. (I'll provide a link to it below.)

NOTE : There are some known issues with these poses, which are unfortunate but unavoidable. Skirts + squatting poses = trouble. This is a universal truth. Also, for some longer jackets, there may be some clipping in the back on some of the poses. I've included a picture to illustrated.

Pose Names
  • Songbirds 01 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_01_lh (that is a lower case letter "L")
  • Songbirds 02 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_02_lh
  • Songbirds 03 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_03_lh
  • Songbirds 04 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_04_lh
  • Songbirds 05 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_05_lh
  • Songbirds 06 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_06_lh
  • Songbirds 07 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_07_lh
  • Songbirds 08 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_08_lh
  • Songbirds 09 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_09_lh
  • Songbirds 10 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_10_lh
  • Songbirds 11 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_11_lh
  • Songbirds 12 (left) : a_k2_songbirds_12_lh
  • Songbirds 01 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_01_rh
  • Songbirds 02 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_02_rh
  • Songbirds 03 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_03_rh
  • Songbirds 04 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_04_rh
  • Songbirds 05 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_05_rh
  • Songbirds 06 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_06_rh
  • Songbirds 07 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_07_rh
  • Songbirds 08 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_08_rh
  • Songbirds 09 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_09_rh
  • Songbirds 10 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_10_rh
  • Songbirds 11 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_11_rh
  • Songbirds 12 (right) : a_k2_songbirds_12_rh

  • The poses work for both genders.
  • Poses were designed to work with Severinka's Shure Microphone Accessory. For the right-handed poses, you will need the one labeled "suitable for unlock sing animation EA".

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
