In time for Halloween, 2007, our knowledgeable friend Peter at Atelier Quebec introduced us all to his amazing (and timely!) new Custom Costume Hack. Our skinners set right to work creating an amazing assortment of add-ons for the House Party Costume trunk which were offered with a door decorated for a Halloween party and are currently available as an archway here.

We had such fun, we decided to have the members here at Simblesse Oblige to do the same in the Luau Costume Challenge. Thanks to all the great skinners who participated, we have 13 new luau outfits for kids to wear. All those entries can be found in the Luau CostumeChallenge forum as normal clothing. The mods took all those great outfits and adapted them for use in the new Simblesse Oblige Luau Costume Party Door.

When kids pass through the door (in either direction), they randomly change into a luau outfit, and not just the meager two supplied by Maxis, but the additional 13 other outfits as well supplied by the members here at Simblesse Oblige. This door works for adults too using the available Maxis skins so the whole family can party. The black mask in the thumbnail shows that this is a costume changing door.

The Maxis costume trunk currently will only recognise 2 children outfits for each category and so these additional outfits will not show up using the trunk.


REQUIREMENTS
Quote:
To get the costume changing effect you must have:

1) The proper EPs for the costume trunk installed (House Party, Double Deluxe, or Complete Collection)
2) Files from the SO Luau Party Pack (3-15)bmp.zip and SO Luau Party Pack (3-15)cmx skn.zip installed
.

INSTALLING THE OUTFITS
Quote:
The additional outfits in the SO Luau Party Pack (3-15)bmp.zip and SO Luau Party Pack (3-15)cmx skn.zip should be placed loose into the ExpansionPack2/Skins folder where the Maxis costume trunk outfits are.


Playable versions of the SO Luau Party Pack (3-15) outfits are available at Simblesse Oblige in the Luau Costume Challenge forum.

The SO Luau Party Pack (3-15)bmp is a huge zip with 90 files. If you can't get it to download, PM one of the mods and we'll break it down into smaller zips for you. The files are named to be Mac friendly.

Door works on away lots except for the winter and beach Vacation lots as their costume coding overpowers the door. When sims change their outfits by swimming, or hot tubs, etc, they will most likely need to go through the door again to be put into another random luau oufit.
