Why are my kids naked?

Children in underwear only

I was playing my old Hearthfire save in Skyrim when I’ve noticed that my kids were only wearing their underwear. I attempted to give them clothes, but they didn’t do anything with them.

Anyone else have a solution?

EDIT: Now the rest of the Skyrim kids aren’t wearing clothes.


The “definition of insanity” solution

There appears to be a glitch in Hearthfire where giving your kids clothes can make them naked. The solution to this appears to be to give them more clothes.

It’s possible that an unrelated glitch made them naked in the first place, and then giving them clothes made them naked-er. Giving them another set might be enough to fix the problem.

The “abandonment” solution

Many bugs in Skyrim can be rectified by leaving the area long enough that the area resets. For this to work, you’ve got to leave the house (and the general area – get far away for best results) and then take it easy for about 10 consecutive days. You won’t win any parent-of-the-year awards, but you might get your kids clothes back on them.

The “put that down” solution

If you’re playing on PC, you can try emptying out their inventory and then giving them clothes again to see if they’ll wear them. As always, back up your save before playing with the console!

  1. Open the console by pressing the ~ key
  2. Click on the child.
  3. Enter the command removeallitems player – this will put everything in the child’s inventory into yours.
  4. Disable the child with disable
  5. Enable the child with enable

Now try giving them their clothes back, and seeing if they put them on.
