It's that time again... I like to call it 'Hair dump time.' This dump is SO BIG I'm splitting it in twain because... well, my swatch pics are on the big side.

There are forty-one hairs lurking here for your downloading pleasure, and as usual they're hairs I kind of want, which means they're on the Medieval side. Since there are forty-one hairs (in two entries), you're getting boilerplate outside the cut.

One: NO PAYSITES. I use Pooklet's actions, Pooklet says no, Pooklet is entitled to that.

Two: Meshes are included, swatches are (or should be) in the files. I have no idea what the poly counts are, but I generally assume that Newsea is high, Nouk is reasonable, and Peggy is all over the map. All these files are compressorized for your pleasure, but a lot of them are still pretty frickin' huge. Four families, Pooklet's grays plus one homebrew because everything must be even omigod, plus bonus custom Time Bomb in case Primer isn't platinum enough for you.

Three: Please beat these files up. No, really. Don't like my binning? Fine, go on and re-bin 'em. Give the elders colors instead of grays (there are three ways to go about this that I know of). Do the unnaturals. For the love of god, shorten my file names-- just because I credit everybody right in the name of the folder doesn't mean you have to leave it that way. I shorten them just for use myself. Change the tooltips, do whatever makes you happy. I don't care. Just give credit where credit is due if you re-upload later.

Four: I have some donators to thank, and I'm just going to say "Thank you donators!" to respect everybody's fiscal privacy. Folks, my Photobucket is paid, so I have zero bandwidth worries. I don't think I'd be doing hair dumps if not for that. Itty bitty proper single posts once in a blue moon when I finally took pictures, but not dumps.

Peggy 002487/Pooklet, Ja, and Peggy textures/Pooklet's actions
Slightly hinky animations, yeah, but really too charming to pass up. LONG braids. Will look strange during the Smustle.

Peggy 04258/Textures by Buckle and Hat/Pooklet's actions/Alpha Edit to make it look like long hair tucked up
Does not meet forehead perfectly in front, but... seriously, how perfect a headclout is this? Well, almost perfect. This is a mighty might alpha edit, so there are quite a few polys you're not seeing...

A Thing of Beauty
Nouk Tyler Hair/Some Redikkulus Textures (on the head)/Pooklet's actions
Oh man, I love this mesh. Getting sexy smooth Pooklet textures on here was worth the fact that it has fifteen damn groups.

A Joy Forever
Peggy 4022/Io textures/Pooklet's actions
This braid is only physically possible with glue, but I love it.

On the Cheek of Night
Mio 0331 Renaissancehair1/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
Cauls (a mesh sheath or winding trim) were very popular to wear with braids from 1100 to about 1540.

Bath Knot
Peggy 06138/Stakeit UK textures/Pooklet's actions
Not particularly Medieval, but nice for the underwear state-- so she's not getting her hair wet in the anachronistic hot tub.

Market Day
XM Flora 22/Ja and FR textures/Pooklet's actions/Alpha Edit to remove bangs
Originally, this had a ribbon woven through the braid. I failed to duplicate that when I shoehorned Pooklet's textures onto the mesh, so the braid disappears a bit on darker colors in some lights.

Peggy 05712/Io textures/Pooklet's actions
Always nice to have your hair where you can see it.

Dance at the Fair
Nouk Squid Hair/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
Sometimes my hair-names don't make any sense.

Dear Dairy
Peggy 4669/Poettchen textures/Pooklet's actions
No, I meant to spell it 'dairy.'

Helga 87/Avaluna textures/Pooklet's actions
Your game needs this hair.

Hippie Princess
M&T Cakestore Yi Die Base/Pooklet and FR textures/Pooklet's actions
Young Adult-Elder
This hair has some issues-- weird mirroring in the back, and the wispy dealies in the front are meshed to accomodate a BIG dress.

Nouk Lithium Hair/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
This is a sexy, sexy mesh, kids.

It's Tidy
Nouk Side Braid/Nouk textures/Pooklet's actions
There are some meshes you can never ever have too many recolors of.

Keeping House
Newsea J008F Starlet/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
I still can't decide if this is elegantly casual or casually elegant.

A Little Dated
Peggy 0683/Pooklet and Peggy's textures/Pooklet's actions
This reminds me of old movies, like from the sixties and seventies, and how they'd try so hard to make the actress's hair look natural, but something about the hairspray made it so... like that. (Also, this one runs a little light. It doesn't bother me, but if it bothers you, feel free to re-do it.)

Peggy March 2010/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
Magrat Garlick. I'm a geek, but this hair has always reminded me of her-- kind of like a haystack, kind of like a hippie, all around trying too hard in a totally earnest way when really, a simple ponytail might be a good idea...

Maid of All Work
Milano Sims Elena Africa/Random Fabric textures
Young Adult-Elder
CLOUTS. Perfect peasant-woman headwear. Does tend to clip larger ears, though.

(Multibin shows up for all hair colors in game, does not break genetics, does not show in Body Shop. Choose only one!)

Peggy August 2007/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
I've been wanting to use 'Roundheels' as a hair name for a while now. Why would you say a woman has round heels? She must-- she's on her back all the time...

Sea Witch
Newsea YU16F Viking/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
It's kind of a messy hairdo, all that long hair, but I tell you what-- I love it for use with underwear. If you have Seasons, the hair you set with your underwear is the hair your Sim wears while naked-- doesn't this look like bathtime hair?

Peggy August 2008/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
There's just something really appealing about this ponytail, I don't know. I like it.

Newsea J006F Aroma/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
I figure either a peasant girl who's trying to be elegant or a highborn lady who's just been ACR'd.

Sweetly Mussed
Newsea J005F Shangri-La/Pooklet textures/Pooklet's actions
This is another one of those names that I went "I have to call it something!"

Sweet Sister
Peggy Juice 117/Pooklet and Peggy textures/Pooklet's actions
I was able to splice Peggy's original curls with Pooklet's textures. A WINNAR IS HAT.

Ugh, yeah. Haha. I did a totally idiotic thing trying to get AnyGameStarter to work. I should've read more carefully that it doesn't mention supporting 'Best of Business.' >_< Luckily, someone else had the problem I'm having and posted on simbology so it's getting fixed, but it's a pain in the ass.

Guh. I AM DEAD FROM THE AWESOME. Seriously - SERIOUSLY - thank you so damn much for these. A bunch of these were on my list (or added to my list recently, or I've just seen them right this second and would have added) and hlfhqefhoqeiubviuab you saved me so much work. All of these (male and female) look amazing.

On a related note, Sorry I'm a lazy fuck who hasn't done much on my list (well I've started a lot of them, but I get to the "ok I exported it from BS, now to link the textures for small files" part and I'm all "DUN WANNA" so they sit in the in progress folder for weeks. Also I keep finding people have done them right after I start a mesh, and I'd rather "fix" theirs than redo them from scratch). :(

Oh god, this is spectacular. :D Hair is really one of my biggest cc weaknesses, and these are so pretty... I've got some of these hairs already, but THESE have all the colors I like and unf, I'll be back tomorrow to download basically all of them when I'm not so tired. Thank you!!!!

Yeah, I think it's safe to say that hair makes up, if not the majority of my downloads folder, then the biggest size of any particular kind of item. It doesn't help that I prefer to repeat hairstyles as infrequently as possible.

It does tend to add up, doesn't it? Especially with so many different color actions which are all very attractive. I'm Pookleting and Aelia-ing some furniture right now, and I can't possibly make all the colors and patterns that I'd ideally like to have. There's just too much.

Two gigs of hair? My entire downloads folder is less than two gigs. I used to have seven or eight, and my hair folder was probably the same size as yours, but my game just ran too slowly. I'm on a low-download diet now. It's very difficult to maintain. I think I really need to stop downloading skintones and AF clothing, though. I have enough of it and I don't actually use everything I have.

I actually do feel like I could use more hair, though. Especially for men! So that's why I've been grabbing so much of your stuff.

Yeah, I don't use much Maxis hair either. :-\ I wish it didn't suck so much, and failing that, I wish I could default it all, or just delete it from my game.

I totally did not know that Pinketamine made hair defaults! I'll have to go look for those.

Also from what I understand, one of the elder colors is one you made yourself? It's a really gorgeous tone. Is there some way you could share it? I'd really like to make the rest of my elder hairs match.

Did I mention that you rule?!

You have definitely out done yourself again. In other words, YOU ROCK!!! I have been wanting and couldn't find Pooklet re-textures of that first Peggy braid (Wagnerian), the XM hair (Market Day), and the Peggy updo (A Little Dated) for absolute ages. Thank you so, so much!

I LOVE "A little dated". I adore that hair mesh, and this is the first decent (no, gorgeous) retexture of it I have seen.

Also grabbed A Joy Forever, Bath Knot (cute!), Intrigue, Roundheels, Sea Witch, and Dance at the Fair, and used the Juliet hair for a Romeo and Juliet-themed contest entry. Thank you!

A friend gave me a link to this site cause i´ve seen a hairstyle in her pictures, a hairstyle of that kind that made me falling in love directly.
And now i´m overwhelmed by all these hairs, don´t know where to begin or to end - i´ll grab them all... :)
So You´ve found the way to my heart through hair, i´m happy like an ape, now my sims will have the perfect uncut hair i´ve ever seen.
Thank You, Carl
