This is a hakama set from the holiday stuff pack, so you'll need that one! The motive on the haori coat is really from a boy's kimono.

Thanks, but I think you should put Holiday pack required just in case.

Nice job with the picture on the back.


There are many myths about planes. Not many people know them. My favorite one is the propellor one: The propellor is on the front of the plane, it cools the pilot, because when it turn off, the pilot starts sweating.

I really like Holiday pack kimonos, but I wanted them to be everyday outfits too...
Can somebody do this?

Hi! My kimonos are already everyday outfits. If you want the maxis ones, you just open body shop, hit the "create" button and find the kimono under clothing. Then you export it and immediately after than you can import the kimono again, and choose which categories to show it in.

Ohh! these are SO incredible!

I know you've heard this before, but is there any way you could put these on a different mesh? I don't have the Holiday pack... *insert lame excuse here, sigh*

... I didn't know the Holiday Pack had kimonos. mrrrh. *sad coyote look*

Dont worry.....*rufles sad coyotes headfur*
nether did i till i got it home lol.....(but you can get some womens kimono's recols here that are just as good, with a link to the places the mesh is at eheh)

actually, im wondering about that.....has anyone tried making a pair of sims with the xmas pack AND pets installed? i mean, i hear that pets makes meshes become included in the installable, so....surely EA hasnt made it that non-EA content only meshes are included, but their own are left alone?
(admitedly, i know bugger all about the tech side, but would it be possible to do that, exclude your own game meshes, but make sure everyone elses were packeage?)

it might work, i sure hope so, casue then a ton of people could at least have the kimono ect and not have to go out and buy the xmas pack if all they wanted was just the two outfits (by dling a pair of sims with those outfits on and them having come from a person that has both xmas pack and pets i mean)

oh, and the kimono's and haori&hakama you have done are fantastic ^^

*grins* I just have to say that discovering this outfit and your amazing kimonos made me go out and buy that darn Holiday pack after all (considering the only thing in it I wanted was the fireworks, and the rest of it just annoys me, I didn't think I would... naturally this was before discovering that omg they have kimono outfits )... thank you. ^_^ I'd join Dolphindragon888 in wishing some kind mesher could make this outfit available for my female sims as well, I have a few that could really use it.

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions towards clothing of similar style to fit teens and children? It seems that has been overlooked by Maxis once again

This is so cool, it is hard to find something oriental-styled for male sims but I was lucky that i found your download and this is great :D

Wonderfully done! Finally males have kimonos! BTW, does this need any expansion packs? I've read somewhere that you need holidays EP? Really?

I'm pretty, huh? I'm not even PRETTY enough to FIT my shoes!

Um, if this needs Holiday Pack, why isn't there a tag?

For the last time ppl, there are no tags for Holiday pack or any of the stuff packs.

There are tags for stuffpacks now.

Thankyou thank you thank you! I love your Japanese outfits! I had to go through and search for more after seeing just one set. Yours are all awesome, I spent the evening downloading them all. This is just the first one I commented on. I did hit the "thanks" on them all, though. Great work! And I love that you based them on real items/patterns.

You have this tagged for needed only the base game when you clearly state that the holiday pack is needed...
