A mannequin is a display object featured in The Sims 2: H&M Fashion Stuff, The Sims 3: Into the Future, and The Sims 4: Get to Work. Mannequins are humanoid figures sculpted to look like another Sim in order to showcase off a piece of clothing or an outfit, and to see what it would look like on a Sim's body.

The Sims 2: H&M Fashion Stuff[edit | edit source]

The Sims 2: H&M Fashion Stuff pack provides three mannequins to the game: two variations of Zecutine's Stand Me Up Mannequins and Psst Over Here Mannequin.[1] These objects are found under Decoration -> Sculptures and act as purely cosmetic decorative objects for setting up a bontique.[confirmation needed]

Notes[edit | edit source]

The Sims 3: Into the Future[edit | edit source]

The Sims 3: Into the Future introduces two mannequin displays. Sims can use these objects to purchase outfits. There is no business aspect to these displays, but other Sims can autonomously interact with them and browse different outfits.

By default, only outfits from Into the Future expansion are automatically shown, but outfits from other packs can also be displayed by planning outfits. Outfits for all Sims aged child and older can be displayed on the mannequins, and the automatic display options always display an outfit that can be worn by the Sim that generated the outfit. Other Sims can not take an outfit from the display if their age and gender do not match.

There is a community lot type which already includes these displays, called as gallery shop, but the lot type is not necessary to interact with displays.

The Sims 4: Get to Work[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 4: Get to Work, mannequins are used in retail businesses and in Create a Sim for when a business owner is customizing the uniform of employees. There can be up to ten mannequins per lot.

Business uses[edit | edit source]

Mannequins are mostly used to display outfits for other Sims to buy in a retail business. Mannequins can be posed in a number of postures and idle positions in order to show off the merchandise. Customers can walk up to a mannequin and try on the clothing that the mannequin is wearing to see if they like it before deciding on purchasing the clothing

Mannequins can be dressed in everyday, formal, athletic, sleep, party, or swimwear. Mannequins can have a number of presets for outfits that are either created by the player or randomly chosen through the players wish as well as when a Sim enters an NPC clothing store the mannequins will display outfits that have randomised clothing[clarification needed].

They can wear any type of clothing or accessory that a Sim can wear. There are four types of body types of mannequins and two types of mannequins: There are two adult bodies (both of which display clothing for teens and older) and two child bodies (both of which display clothing for children only).

As well as the two types of mannequins are normal blank mannequins and others that have more detail to look like Sims, such as a more realistically modeled head that includes eye sockets, mouth, nose, and hair.
