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.
Alright, I actually would never have uploaded this if I hadn't seen the Performing Arts theme in the Theme catch-up thread... so I thought, it'd fit in with the monthly theme.

So, basically, this is my very first mesh I've created my self from scratch. I mean, I've only done age conversions so far... but never really created my own mesh. When I was doing this, I was like... "Oh, well, don't give too much effort, since you're going to delete it anyway... I'm just meshing here for fun... nothing serious at all"... and this "meshing just for fun" led to this final product, actually. I still can't believe that I managed to create my own mesh, even though it's not much of an everyday outfit. Lol!

Anyway, this is my attempt at recreating Ariana Grande's iconic outfit from the music video of her song thank u, next, in which she was recreating the iconic Christmas scene from the movie Actually, I also tried to recreate that iconic scene for this upload. So, we're recreating one and another. Lol! I did this... since I'm a fan of her and her music... and I was kind of inspired to do this. Lol!


Available for teens and up. It's NOT enabled for townies. It has a fully working fat and pregnant morph and is flagged as everyday and formal outfit.
To install, just put the files into your Downloads folder. You can simply delete the files if you don't want to see that outfit in your game anymore. Lol!

BTW, the hair in the picture is my Santa Claus Hat Converted For Females which I've already uploaded once.

The dress is not an Ariana Grande reference, it's a Mean Girls reference. Ariana did that whole scene, outifts included, to pay homage to the iconic christmas performance scene from the movie Mean Girls

what does his name even mean?

Thanks for the clarification, lol! I updated the upload text a little. I knew that she was inspired by a movie for this particular scene, but I forgot which one.

Does that age us? I was like "No, that's a Mean Girls reference, not Ariana Grande!"
