Hi All! There are five recolours of Maxis Blazin Buckaroos lanterns-with different metal textures. I thought that Maxis original lantern colour is ugly, so I made these on my own for your modern houses! That's all!

If you like these recolours click "Thanks" button.
Have a fun!

I can't believe nobody's offered recolours of these before, or at least made them easier to find! Thankyou!

Thanks for the recolours, they'll come in handy!
It's true the original colour wasn't quite inspiring :D

I do have a question, though (if I may)
With the presentation house you used in the background, there are some very interesting stone arch-walls - I'd love to know where you got those from!

Thanks again!

The heck have I been?!? Do you know how long I've thought to myself, "I really wish there were recolors of this stupid lantern. The one Maxis gave doesn't cut it"... A lot. So, a very belated thank you! =^)
