Behind the cut lurk thirteen hairs for your downloading pleasure.

Since there are a zillion downloads inside the cut, the boilerplate goes outside the cut, so...

NO PAYSITES. Mesh creators' policies may vary, my policy says I want a cut (like that would ever happen), but Pooklet says no and these are Pooklet's actions. So no paysites.

PRAISE BE UNTO: The kind folks at MATY for their Castaway Stories extractions, Layana, and Aquilegia for meshes, Nou and Aquilegia for textures, Lyn for making sure I had a working copy of Photoshop, Pooklet for making sure Project Mayhem worked with my copy of Photoshop (and for their textures), my lovely donors who make sure I can keep my photos online (which lets me post hair dumps at all), and you lot for being patient with my long radio silence.

HEY LISTEN! Meshes are included unless otherwise noted. Swatches are included in the zip files, everything is compressorized. Poly counts may vary; MAKE NOTES. Elders go gray, but you also get Time Bomb in the custom bin, just in case Primer isn't platinum enough for you. All female hairs are maternity-wear enabled from teen and up, and all male hairs from YA and up, to stop the weird hair disappearing act that happens if you don't have a Pregnant Sims Wear Any Outfit hack (but why wouldn't you?).

ANNOYING THINGS I DO: Because I credit everybody in them, my folder and file names are stupidly long. Feel free to shorten one, the other, or both as you please-- better you edit them to suit your needs than I just name everything [COLOR NAME] and cheese everybody off, right? Also, each hair color has an elder gray attached instead of only black. Feel free to re-bin everything and cut out the extra grays, or only use one family but swap out textures so your elders have some variety, whatever. Likewise, I bin using Pooklet's original scheme, because it's a nice easy default. I totally do not care if you re-bin things to suit your own tastes (but hey, every hair has a gray attached in case you need it!), and neither does Pooklet, so do whatever makes you happy, binning-wise.

EVEN MORE ANNOYING: Everybody sees a hair dump, so...







Anything helps, yo.


Should you donate, you are entitled to make a request-- something off my hair list or my to-do list or even just a straight-up request, and if I've got the skills for it, I'll give it a go. (Once it's done, it's free for everybody to download, of course, and I make no promises about just when I'll get to something I promise to do.) I will also happily barter stuff on my to-do lists or requests for things I wish exsisted that do not yet exist or in-game preview photos of some of these hairs so I can upload them to GoS once in a while.

Yes, if you want to do the unnaturals, please feel free to do the unnaturals. I have no plans to do so. Just remember to credit properly-- I tend to use Nouk's waves, FR's braid, and a chunk of curve I stole off Ja's Uni ponytail default.

If you spot any broken links or other idiocy, please let me know!

There are fifteen large pics behind the cut, cats and kittens. Dial-up users beware.

Okay, I did this one REPEATEDLY. First, it's an all-ages-both-genders hair, and second, M&G came with five colors on the headband. This one is the male recolor where all the hairs get basic black; useful if you want this hair but figure four versions of it in any given bin is enough.

And this is the version where each family got a different colored headband; family 1 got red, Family 2 got green, Family 3 got blue, and Family 4 got gold. I did that with a lot of the Castaway and Bon Voyage hairs that have multiple headgear color choices. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Goddamn, I love these hairs. No, I seriously do. This is the first of my Castaway Stories hairs. I separated the meshes out of the big repositoried bundle from MATY, and used my textures for the hairs. The Big Hat mesh uses the same textures as the basegame Longstraight (or straightsimple or whatever it's called; my recolor is Not So Romantic. If you know how to repository and want to save some space, use that one).

I know Ja already defaulted this hair-- or rather the Longpart hair (this draws its textures from that)-- but I kept looking at it and looking at it and finally I looked at Nouk's Valentine hair and said, "I wonder..." I think it worked out nicely! As with the M&G dreads, the grass colors are sorted by family; all the hairs that use the grass wreaths are sorted the same way.

So, yeah, here's this again. Actually, this is pretty much why I did Absolutely Basic; the textures had to be done and that way, my guys who wear this hair for everyday or formalwear can take off their grass crowns when they go swimming or have a bath or go to bed.

This one doesn't require any expansions, it's another MATY extraction. The textures it uses are from the basegame sixties hair (my variation is 404 Pageboy Not Found, and again if you want to do a repository job on that one, AWESOME, feel free).

Because it's not fair to give you the wreathed versions of this hair without the wreath-free version. It's a little short for most of my game, but it came out really pretty. Don't ever be afraid to try messing around with textures! Sometimes it looks crappy, but sometimes you get something really neat.

Dude, seriously, how kickass is this hat? So kickass. Take a moment to click the full view to admire the full scope of this hat. It's like Sparta collided with the Tiki Room and Loki's helmet. Like most of the Castaway Stories hats, this one uses basegame textures. Aquilegia was amazing enough when she defaulted out the DJ mullet to ensure textures that worked there would work on the Native Chief hat. So, you know, if your Sims want to take this hat off to go to bed... But man, why would they? This hat is epic enough to wear in the bath. ... But maybe not around low doorways. (The hat for Family 4 is a recolor I did myself; there were only three colors originally and I felt the collection was lacking in purple.)

This one draws from the basegame Halo hair, and I have always liked it. Again, there were only three hat recolors originally, but this time I made the first one myself-- there wasn't a good red in the flowers, so clearly that had to happen. Also, I'm not sure what kind of birds have tailfeathers like any of these, but clearly they are terribly awesome birds.

Goddamn, I love me some crazy-ass hats. This is exactly like the male version, with the bonus that you can use the Basegame longstraight hair for when your lady is doing things like yoga or woohoo. All four of the hat recolors for the Big Hat came from Castaway Stories, but I'm pretty sure the one for Family 3 there is actually a chef's hat. I mean, the more I look at it...

This started the way it'll finish-- with the M&G Dreadbands. This time, for women! Again, we start off with the black headband, because when I was deciding what colors to use for... uh, everything, it made sense to do every color with black. I mean, it's a black headband. It's hard to find an outfit that doesn't go with that.

And here's the more colorful version. I only really plan to use this for my Twikkii Islanders (most of my game's action will be centered in a country that draws mainly from France in the High Middle Ages (right before the Plague ushered in the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance), because that's where the neat clothes come from, but the various Vacation 'hoods give me scope for mishmashes of The Tropics, The Far East, and The Vaguely Nordic), but it's a right useful hairdo for the Twikkii Islanders who don't, for whatever reason, get a really awesome hat.

You probably haven't noticed but the first hair in this post, Absolutely Basic, was pulled down from MediaFire for 'copyright violations.' There's a thread about this on ModTheSims.

From: (Anonymous)
Most, if not all of the others, were also pulled.

I did read that someone managed to get the first one back. But it looks like we have a way to go to get them all.
