This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.


It's been a while, but not a completely insane work schedule, nor food poisoning, nor a hard disk crash, nor my ceiling caving in at work from a flood of melting snow could keep me away forever.

For the Natural Redhead Project: 11 recolors/retextures of XMSims' hair #52. There wasn't anything wrong with the original texture; I just wanted something a little silkier for my own game.

These are all color-binned, made with Legacy BodyShop, and grouped in the same family (which means the mesh doesn't "drop" when you switch from color to color).


Reds: Dark Auburn (with brown eyebrows), Auburn, Titian and Ginger.
Blonds: Beach Blonde, Champagne Blonde and Platinum Blonde.
Browns: Chocolate Brown.
Blacks: Warm Black (a black with subtle brown highlights).
Custom: Olive Drab and Dark Orchid (both with brown eyebrows).

The red and blonde shades have white for the elder hair color. The brown and black hairs have grey for their elder hair color. The custom colors do not change for elders.

Terms of use for my textures/recolors: These files may only be redistributed via shared sims, so long as those sims are available in the free section of any site, and I am credited with a link back to my profile on this site. You may not charge money or a membership fee for my files: this includes "donation files" on an otherwise free site, and sites where my files would only periodically be free.

You may recolor these files and/or use the alpha so long as your derivative works are only posted on free sites as described in the previous paragraph. Additionally, these files are subject to XMSims' recolor policies.

group shot colors, l-r: dark auburn, chocolate brown, ginger, warm black, beach blonde, titian red, platinum blonde, and auburn.

Please note now the appearance of beach blonde changes from a tan-based blond in the cool light of the family portrait to a buttery color in the warm light of CAS.

Additional Credits:
Skintones in the screenshots are from Enayla, the eyes, glasses and freckle blushes are by myself, all other makeup and eyebrows are from RenSim and Bruno.

Clothes are by Maxis, Lliella, Helaene, corvidophile2, Heavensent6 and Living_Dead_Girl.
