Anyway to force a Villager to change clothes?

#1BR0DE0Posted 7/31/2013 3:56:34 PM
I have Zucker and he wanted to buy my Samurai Shirt for like 1000 bells, so I said yes.

Now he looks ugly and I want him to put his flan shirt back on.
Is there anyway to do this?
does telling on him to issabelle make him go back to his default clothes or something?

Yes, reporting him to Isabelle will revert to his original clothing, catchphrase and greeting.

If you mail them a shirt, they may wear it, but they may also display it in their house. I find that If I send a villager two of the same shirts, they usually end up wearing it.

This doesn't work. I reported Marshal once because he had a dumb catchphrase form another village, and it just reverted his catchphrase to a generic "Uh huh!". Same thing happened with Phoebe. I also reported Pierce's clothes once and he just wore a generic white shirt.

TC, the SAME thing happened to me with Zucker today! Except instead of wearing a shirt I gave him, he decided to wear one of the ugly default patterns from Ables. I was so mad, and I don't even have the flan shirt to catalogue. Is it even a rare shirt? Cuz I'm pretty sure I've never seen it.

But yeah, only way is to send them shirts by mail, and they're not guaranteed to change. I've had villagers change instantly, while for others I had to send like five shirts before they finally changed. I'm looking at you, Colton.

I gave Lionel the Hero's Clothes for his birthday and he put it on immediately.

I have the same problem, except the shirt in question is the spiderweb tee.

Yeah I figured it must have been. I also really want Colton to wear his original shirt but it's also a GracieGrace item :(
