Behind the cut lurk seventeen 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: Trapping, Helga, Lidiqnata, Nouk, Bipsouille, Natrobo, Hysterical Paroxysm, Cynnix, Sussi, Tenshii Akari, Pinketamine, and Marja for awesome meshes, Pooklet, Nouk, FR, Ja, Alfred Askew, 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. 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 at least 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 seventeen large pics behind the cut, cats and kittens. Dial-up users beware.

My game needs more pageboy haircuts that work for men. (No it doesn't. My game is hovering at 6.5 gigs of custom content and a significant amount of that is hair. If there's something I need, it's working items that replace deco items.)

This is another hair done for a content trade. Let the record show that I will be happy to retexture hairs outside my chosen period (especially inside another period I'm familiar with) in exchange for things like Medieval mesh defaults for NPCs, pregmorphs added to meshes that lack pregmorphs (especially AM and TF), and age conversions of some of the more useful Medieval meshes out there.

I like this hair. It looks like what Aquilegia's Scholar's Tail would look like loose. It's not animated like the female original from the Store, though, just so you know. (That's my original picture. Same textures, just on a new mesh with more ages.)

Something... Something about needing more curly hair... Anyway, it was Alfred Askew's idea to slap Nouk's waves onto this mesh, I just did it binned the way I like and attacked Pinketamine's MtF mesh with it. And cut out the toddler hair. Mapping issues, maybe that was my problem, I don't know.

Long, straight, loose hair with no bangs and a reasonable poly count. Is there any theme that DOESN'T need more hair like that? This is Alice in Wonderland hair, it's mermaid hair, it's damsel-in-distress hair, it's an updo taken down for the bath. It's whatever you need it to be because it's just nice, natural hair.

I really love "Good Use for Teasing." My grandmother belongs to a very small denomination where all of the women wear their hair like that...so I can now actually make my family in-game if I so choose. (Plus...I just like it. That one hair made my day.)

Thanks for enduring the hair texturing! Everything looks great!

D'aww is just D'AWW.

I'm pretty sure the deal with the TA hair is that the toddler doesn't have a new mesh, it's just the texture on a BG mesh, which I didn't personally have an issue keeping in the package because it still was a decent fade, given the alpha. I also linked the female textures to that of the males, and referred C and T to the male version entirely, so there may have been an issue with the toddler gender conversion I just never noticed.

ACK, here I go with WORDS about HAIR.

Congrats on tackling that Adrestaia hair. If it's anything like the one Nouk hair I did, you're ripping your own hair out by the roots wondering how that many groups could even exist.
