For the more adventurous and silly among us, here are three er, unusual
, hat conversions from The Sims 2. All of them are for both genders and are enabled for Teens through Elders.
First off is the French Fries hat.
This hat has three recolourable areas: the main area, the trim along the top edge, and the inner area just visible. The Fries are not recolourable because, well, they're fries and they're supposed to be Fries colour!
It is categorised as a Hat Hair and will be found in the Hair section in CAS.
Next is the Llama head from the University llama mascot.
This too has three recolourable areas: the main area, the inner ears, and the eyes. Looks rather cute with an animal pattern applied, too!
It too is categorised as a Hat Hair in the Hair section of CAS.
And finally, the Propeller Hat. I am unable to re-create the spinning blades animation for TS3 (have NO idea if it can even be done), so have tried to mimic the effect by making the 'blade' section out of glass.
This is not fully recolourable - I tried to do so but it wouldn't come out very well - but, you can tint it by sliding the colour wheel around to get subtly different effects.
This item is categorised not as a Hat Hair, but as an Accessory, under the Earrings section
, so that your sims can wear it over the hairdo of their choice - but their choice needs to be limited to fairly flat, close hairdos. So, big bouffant custom hairs won't fit under it, but any close-to-the-head hairdo should be OK.
Please note that for some reason, these hats all display in CAS with weird shadows that look fairly awful (especially on the llama head), at least on my PC. But when in-game, there is no trace of these weird shadows, as you can see from the screenies, so it seems to be some strange CAS lighting conflict with these meshes.
Thank you for looking and I hope you'll find these fun!
