UPDATE JUNE 22 2018: Added new .zip file which enables Bonehilda's outfit for the Seasons patch's 'Cold Weather' and 'Hot Weather' categories. If you are installing this sim for the first time, please also download the 'Bonehilda - Updated for Seasons' .zip file and let the two enclosed package files overwrite the two old ones that were in the original zip file. If you already have this sim, then just download the Updated zip and let the two packages inside it overwrite your old ones. Then go into Full Body outfits in the Cold and Hot Weather categories and click on Bonehilda's outfit, and then into Shoes for the Cold and Hot Weather categories and click on the Null Feet item, to make sure they're both enabled (check the new picture, Updating Bonehilda For Seasons). TBH, though, she looks quite cute in the default Seasons outfits the game automatically puts her into in those categories, because although she reverts to a 'human' body, I made it extremely skinny with a bone-coloured texture, so she still looks sorta skeletal but wearing a colourful new outfit. Your choice!

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2017: Still OK with this month's patch (for Cats & Dogs) which apparently messed up the arms on many custom clothing meshes/body meshes. This item is still working as normal.

UPDATE March 3 2016: I've now been able to remake Bonehilda's head to include hat chops, so that she can wear hats. (Scroll down to 2nd composite picture below for examples.) I made this sim back in the early days of TS4 and didn't include hat chops, which resulted in her head changing to a human head when the game would automatically switch her into a hat for career or other purposes. Now she will no longer have that problem. If you already have this sim, please re-download and copy the new version of Bonehilda_Head (dated March 3 2016) into your Mods folder, letting it overwrite the old version.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Here's a conversion of that lovely and demure, if a little skinny, gal from The Sims 3. In TS4, she is a regular sim and doesn't function as a maid/nanny, but with the Master Chef, Neat, and Family-Oriented traits, she can still be pretty handy around the house.

She comes with three sets of recolours for her dress and headband, as below: Red outfit, black outfit, pink floral outfit; black headband, red headband, hot pink headband. All of her various body parts are DISABLED for Random, so none of your townies should show up wearing Bonehilda bits.



She should appear in CAS looking as she does here, but if not: Her 'head' is in the Hair section, and her 'body' is in the Full Body outfit section, both items having a thumbnail of a full length pic of Bonehilda. She needs Null Feet, in the Shoes section, to make the human feet invisible. You may need to click the red X filter in CAS if all items don't show under all categories. She uses a custom skin overlay, found in the Skin Details section.

When first installed, she will appear in CAS wearing default earrings and a default bracelet (as seen in below pic, top left) - this is so that you can click the earrings to bring up the Head Accessories menu, or click the bracelet to bring up the Full Outfits menu, because as you may know, most custom heads and bodies don't respond to clicking on in CAS and won't bring up the menus. But this way, clicking the earrings will enable you to change her headband colour or add a hat, and clicking the bracelet enables you to change her outfit colour. When you've finished assigning your choices of headband and clothing colour, maybe adding a hat to an outfit or two if wanted, you can remove the earrings and bracelet.

She does not retain her skeleton body in the bath, although her custom head (hair) stays on. I considered combining her head and body as a hair mesh as I did with my Servo and Mr Skeleto sims (so that their custom bodies stay on in the bath), but decided that Bonehilda wearing her dress in the bath would look too odd and that it would be better to make a skeleton-textured Skin Detail overlay for her underlying nude human body, as in the below pic.

And as per the above March 3 2016 update, I've made a new version of her head in which she can wear hats, as depicted below. Her hatchops work well with TS4 hats (although her headband stays on under the hat due to the head's mapping), but NOTE that this does not work with hats that 'take over' the whole head such as helmets, the Star Wars stuff and the bath towel - she will revert to her underlying human head in those cases.



TRAITS: Young Adult, Master Chef, Neat, Outgoing, Family Oriented.

In-game, I move her into my Roomies household, where she shows herself to be a dab hand with the cupcake machine:



And she also finds true love - someone to make beautiful music together with:



Thanks for looking, hope you'll find her a fun character to play with.

Thanks! Maybe Bonehilda, Mr Skeleto and your Bloody Reaper skeleton guy can all hang out together! Hopefully the deco motorbike will be ready in the near future, have made it a sittable item and need to figure out how to fix the foot rigging to get the feet in the right place.

If they were, you could always imagine they were trying out for 'dumb ways to die'. Maybe the poor sim went skinny dipping in a piranha infested pool.

I've installed the mod manually as you've instructed to the tray folder and mod folder, but only the null feet option was shown in the shoes section.
I couldn't find the head, detailed skin and costume anywhere, please help

If the files Esmeralda_Bonehilda_Body.package, Esmeralda_Bonehilda_Head.package and Esmeralda_BonehildaBathSkin.package are in your Mods folder, then they will definitely show up in game. Please double-check to make sure they're there. It's possible you could be seeing the null feet if you previously installed the female version of my Servo sim, because she came with the same null feet package, but maybe you haven't put the Bonehilda items in the same folder. I've read that since the last patch, there have been some problems reported about cc in sub-folders within the Mods folders not working, so that might be a problem if you use subfolders (I don't, and all my Bonehilda stuff shows up in my own game). If her items are in a sub-folder, try putting them in the root Mods folder.
