This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
All this stuff was supposed to be the foundation for a site that alas never came to see the light of day....

I once had huge plans for that site though: i wanted it to be very conceptual with a mix of storytelling and downloads, everything with the framing in shape of a company of miserable and desillutionated artists and entertainers: The Cabaret Macabre!


It could have been great - or absolutely worthless - we'll never know since I lost interest and the necessary sparetime long ago...

But the clothes are still with me and I think it would be nice if I could offer them exclusively to MTS2 so that others could enjoy them too. So here we go!

They are all tossed in one big .rar but each clothing has it's separate folder with a name that correspondate with the descriptions on the screenshots below (click the thumbnails on the bottom of the page for larger pictures).






Meshes are included!

Mesh Credits

Milicent's dress: Mesh__FCvicdress2 - All About Style -> Meshes page -> Page 5, second mesh

Louise's dressinggown: Mittelalter Kleid Besens Sims 2 Site (Dead or just resting?)

Louise's bustle dress: Tournuere - 2-f0r-u -> Meshes -> Fashion -> Female Adult -> Page 4, fourth mesh

William's black coat: "Guilty Outfit" by Sshodan - here on MTS2

Louise's lace gown:Corset dress by Starangel13 (mesh has been removed from MTS2)

A big, huge THANK YOU! to all creators!



These recolours were all made pre-Pets so there should be no such issues. Base game-only compliant if other not specifically stated (see the screenshots).

...You may upload my clothing with your sims to free sites (but remember that none of the meshes were made by me so check with respective creator!). Remember that being credited gives me warm fuzzy feelings but you're not obliged to credit me as long as you don't claim my work as your own

...You may freely use everything I make in pictures/movies/stories without crediting me

...You may use my textures or parts thereof for your own projects but remember that credit is nice (and that whatever you make must stay free!)

Enjoy!


Edited To Add:
26th April 2008:
Thanks to MidnightVoyager and Jenfold at Garden of Shadows , the long lost mesh by StarAngel has finally been recovered. This has been added to the .rar (and I will put it in a safer place on my hard drive this time...)


Some of you have asked where the curtains in the picture are from. They are indeed lovely and I traced them to Sims 2 Ellis.ru. The site is terribly slow for me tonight and I don't feel like crawling through 17 pages of decorative objects right now , but you should probably find them under New objects -> Decorative
ETA again: What the heck - here it is (the mesh; the recolour pictured in my screenshot is on the next page)

There were also requests for the background stories on the characters, so I simply uploaded the website as it looked when I abandoned it. It's only the biographies but that was what you requested anyway (just excuse my crappy English. I had planned to go over all the bios before the official launch, but that one never came to be, as we all know...)

These are nice, but I'm super annoyed that they are all in one big rar. I mean, that's alot of different meshes your asking people to have, and it seems like such a waste.

All of these characters and clothes are incredible. I love the personalities and style in these pictures. I'm rather sad the website will never see the light of day because I'd love to know their story.

Berg, I am absolutely in love with all of Louise's outfits! Expecially the lace one! *sigh*

The other characters outfits are wonderful as well, great detail in the patterns and designs.

Wow ! Just love them
Love the details and the care you gave each and every one. And the pictures (my particular pet peave - just hate to make them) are absolutely stunning

Congrats!

Just a question, though. As an history freak...what is the era here? The woman in bustle dress looks very old fashioned when compared with the one in pants...

When all Courage is necessary, all Hope is justified!

I would love to read the backstory to these characters! I'm with cjrox731 in wondering where you got those stunning curtins! I love this whole time period and the fact that it is a cabaret makes it much more fun! Keep expanding this set! I can't wait for my sims to wear these clothes!

Featured? Wow, I just can't believe it! I didn't even think it would be approved for at least another 48 hours!

Thanks all for your nice comments, I'll try and answer your questions:

I'm not sure what you mean... The folders within the .rar are named after the description on the screenies so you're supposed to just delete those items you don't want after downloading. It would have been so many diferent files to download individually otherwise, which I myself find annoying (there's always q-Xpress of course...).

Heh, I have the webpage with biographies for the characters somewhere. Let's see if I can upload it ,just for you, my friend!
I didn't make the curtains but I'll see where I got them next time I start up my game, I PM you then.

I decided to put the book down when I made these. I simply demand historical authencity in movie costumes IRL and such, but not when I play my Victorian 'hood and make period sims clothing. You're getting too restricted IMO, so you can say I 'went fantasy' with this set. Oh, and Gerta, the woman in pants, is supposed to be a woman wearing men's clothing but how were anyone to know that...
