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.

I think it´s really annoying that no elder vacation outfits came with Bon Voyage. So here are the Kimonos converted for the grannies (male version will come soon) I made two sets. The first set included the mesh with the textures of the adult kimono, that makes 5 kimonos. The second set also includes the mesh and the outfit with the teen textures, that´s 4 kimonos. So all in all 9 kimonos
Outfit is bumpmapped and has a working fat morph. BV is not needed.

Set 1 (adult textures -> 5 kimonos)





Set 2 (teen textures -> 4 kimonos)





Pics from the back are below.

Awesome! Thank you so much for this. It's not fun making themed sims when you can't at least dress them similarly all the way through their life. Keep up the great work!

I still can't figure out why EAxis left the elders out of the BV tourist/local themed wardrobes...thanks for converting these! On that note, I'm looking forward to the male versions as well...

Thanks for these! Your conversions are endlessly useful in my aging neighbourhood.

ps. I know it's cheeky to ask, but I was wondering if you were planning to convert the teen kimonos for AFs too?

Elder don't have kimonos? *blink* What the HECK?! *searches bodyshop* They really don't! I can't believe I never noticed that! And me a BV fan! Well, in other words, thank you so MUCH for these! *mutters* No elder kimonos... WHAT was Maxis THINKING?

Suppose you'll make elder male ones as well? *hopeful look*

FOODSTAMPS is right...they are Yukata. I think EA called them Kimono too though...which makes me think they are very ignorant. So it is not DUSTFINGER'S fault for naming them incorrectly. Sorry...but, I think it dose mater a bit when you have the wrong information about someone elses culture.

yeah, i have to say i know very less about asian culture though i find it very interesting. and because maxis said "kimono" i also called these kimonos... i can call the male ones yukata - but so most europeans/americans and so on will not know what i mean i suppose...

however, thank you for the comments

Thanks. ^^ The red and white teen kimono looks identical to an anime character I want to make a sim of's clothing. One question though. Can you please make the teen kimonos for adult ages as well because I want to make her an adult so I can pair her with another sim from the series that someone made as an adult even though are both teens in the series?
