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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well, I've finally gotten the time to make these! I'm almost halfway through summer and that means one thing. Lots of free time.

-For these to work, you need HystericalParoxysm's untuckable shirt mesh! The link can be found at the bottom of the page. Also, to get the untucked look, you need untuckable pants, which can be found in the same thread at the bottom-

These are basically Migamoo's Tanktops but with some texture edits on the straps, a slight alpha edit, and of course with stripes.
Her tank tops are recolors of HystericalParoxysm's untuckable tops for women, and the link to those with the mesh are, of course, located at the bottom of the page.
All of these untucked things wouldn't of been made without Fanseelamb, because she made the original untucked items for men.

Putting the texture on the straps gave me quite a bit of trouble. I had to keep re-doing it to make it so it looked remotely ok. What I have here isn't perfect, but it's not bad either.

I made a bunch of colors with white stripes, a few with black stripes, and of course some in between!

I think the files are labeled clearly, so you can pick out what you want to put in your game. However, I will say that the letter in front of the color means the stripe color. So, "worange" means White and Orange Stripes. "bgreen" means black and green stripes. So even though saying worange is fun, I didn't make the word up on purpose.

Thanks for looking at (and possibly downloading) my stuff!
I'd like to hear what you have to say about it.

Additional Credits:
Fanseelamb, for letting everyone reuse her textures, and sparking the untucked madness.

HystericalParxysm, for making the female version of this,

And of course Migamoo, for makeing the tanktops.
