This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
Lord, I hope I did this right. This was a lot harder than the Batman Ears. This is basically the vampire cape from Nightlife, with the collar removed, the bottom part cut off, and as an accessory. It's far from perfect, I'm sure, but someone needed to do it. I actually said in a SynapticSim thread that I would teach myself to mesh just so I could do this one project, and I did. So I hope you all like it. Sorry for the lack of color. I made this for you guys to play with. Have at it!

Children, teenagers, and all the adults ages can wear this cape. It can also be worn with other accessories (Thank you Dr Pixel, for everything you ever said about accessory meshing). Everything was made by either Maxis or me - well, all Maxis, I guess. I have University, so be aware of that. I do not have Nightlife; I know a guy who does and pulled the mesh from his game. He's the one that got me started playing this in the first place. And now I do this instead of English homework. Thanks a lot, Sean!

Coming soon(ish): PAF's capes as accessories and capes to fit the common muscular body meshes. Plus more random superhero accessories.

You know what else I should do? Get me an avatar.

It goes great with the new suits of armor in OFB!

This will go perfect for the "Gray Champion" sim I'm working on...

I'm hoping the Uni requirement is a mistake, as I am otherwise poised to download; not only that, but it looks stupendous.

Yeah, Uni isn't required. I wasn't sure whether it was when I uploaded it, because I was brand new, but it should work with anything from OfB on down (Pets and Seasons though, maybe not).

Come hang out with me and SynapticSim at The Lair

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I've spent the last two days frantically searching for *something* that could double as an Elven cloak (you know, the ones that Frodo and company got in "The Fellowship of the Ring"?) and I've finally found it. I may edit it a little so it looks a bit more...cloak-like, but that's that. THANKS! Hannon le. :D

Well i was all excited about the cape ...then i realized you need University ..i wasn't so much happy about that and i need shmexi batman but he is not complete without his cape...but in The Incredibles it is apparently dangerous to have a cape and im running on well to get my question across can you possibly make a batman cape ..for Nightlife and or Pets and or just without EPs? it would be much appreciated tehe =)

Wow, this brings back memories from Sims 1, when I used to hope that my Sims kids wouldn't be wearing that stupid hat. Cos you couldn't change it, they were stuck with that dunces hat.
My point is, that hat matched a cape, which I didn't like. But I like this one.

You know, my one vampire sim in my series was looking for a cape to go with his Kimono, if only I didn't film it before I found this. But still, thank you.

Thanks. I was planning on making a recolor, but i wanted to make sure i had your permission.

What accessory does it come under (eg glasses, makeup etc) ?

I know this was made a looong time ago, but is there a way you can make a bodybuilder cape?? Because in the bodybuilder mesh, the back of the sim goes over the cape. Btw, thank you so much for the cape!!! ♥
