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.

Finally, something nobody asked for! A realistic skin for mannequins that actually WORKS! You may wonder what I'm talking about. Well, the mannequins in the Sims are quite special and can't just be recolored like furniture. If you do it the old school way then the new skin won't show up in game and you will be very confused and annoyed (trust me). So I found a neat little work around that is very easy. To make your mannequins look like this, please follow my instructions
  1. Go into buy mode and buy the mannequin you want in any color, doesn't matter. Oh, and place it somewhere too!
  2. Click on the mannequin and select the option to give it a custom outfit.
  3. Now you're in CAS. Go to the gloves category and click on the thumbnail of the mannequin skin (different swatches for different genders and ages)
  4. Tadaa! Now you have a realistic looking mannequin to live out your wildest dreams (as long as your wildest dreams are about having a realistic mannequin)

You can even make them pose and give them outfits! Neat!


As always with my uploads I give you full permission to edit and recolor. Not only am I giving you permission, I'm begging you! Because only one skintone? How boring is that? Please make mannequins that are varied and unique and make sure to share them online so everyone can use them I wonder what this skintone looks like on normal Sims... probably terrifying. Time to download and find out!

Removed the bra straps of the female mannequin with my amazing photoshop skills. They were in the way too often!

Hm, that is strange... can you show me a screenshot? Does it show the correct thumbnail for the skin or does that not work too?

To be honest i only needed a realistic female mannequin for one tiny thing and then made the rest kind of to complete the set. It would be really cool to have more skintones and eyecolors but i'm a bit lazy... I could make them super easily if i found the textures for the differnt skintones because the only one i can find online is always just that default one i used here D: But i hope maybe other people will make more skintones! Maybe i could make at least one more set that was a bit darker, that would probably be nice.

The tumbnails work (if it's not the picture you show but only a complete body with the skintone take from s4studio on perspective3D front left view).

and if you want to know, i think it's not the only bug a have : it show only 1 glove in glove selected but its accessible by accesories not sorted. (good search for me xD) but that is not really an issue impov

i will search for conflitc next time i want to play sims4, it could be another mod recolor in that object that make your mod not working, but atm i don't know.

Hm, very strange.... for me it all works fine, hmm.. It is a very simple skin so it should work like normal accessories and not be so weird Please tell me when you know what the problem is! I have no idea, sorry D:

Awesome! I can finally make them look like the students from NPC University! Combined with that one Reptillian mod and a rainbow clown wig, I can make a Honkler Sim too. The possibilities!
