I bring you "Borin" the Medieval Jester for your period lots. I must say though, he's anything but borin'. He will dance, juggle, play hand puppets and generally make a Medieval 'fool' of himself for the enjoyment of your Sim Lords and Ladies. Watching him increases fun and generates lots of laughter, foot stompin' and belly grabbin'. He's a silly fool, but he's loved by nobles and peasants alike!

Podium Faces: 20
The Jester is an NPC, and so it has the equivalent poly count of most sims.
Appears in the Catalog under Miscellaneous/Party for 100 Simoleons
Installation: Unzip and place the resulting folder wherever you normally place your downloaded custom content. All the files in the folder are necessary for the jester to work. Mesh files and recolor files by other artists have been renamed to prevent inadvertant deletion. They all retain their original GUIDs.
Echo for her dancing carnival clown that I used as the basis for my jester.
Kaitshi for the jester costume mesh.
Bobby for the tutu mesh.
DSB for the jester hat mesh.
Meshy for the recolors used for the costume, hat and tutu.
Note: The podium can only be moved while there is no jester on it. Once the jester NPC has been spawned, you'll need to use "Moveobjects on" to move or delete the podium.
Tested in a vanilla game with all expansions plus M&G.
