This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

Eve & Milan hair

Ingrid!
Ingrid, the model sim used to display this hair, is now available for download. Get Ingrid and her sisters here.



New zips : Purple and Red, new colors.

As I have 11 colors for my Catherine's hair, and as I got a few more hairs ready that I'll also have 11 colors for, I decided to add the 2 extra colors here as well for those of you who like Red or Purple as red hair on their sims. Certain sims just don't fit with my orange-toned Natural Reds, lol.

You'll now have 4 different choices for Red hair, and this is going to be a "standard" recolor palette for me from now on. Check the new picture in the picture bin to see what the two extra colors look like. It's not Ingrid, but Catherine modelling for these.

I love this Maxis mesh.



It's always been one of my favourite base-game hair meshes. I still use it from time to time despite having several dozens of awesome custom hairstyles.

I thought I'd try to refresh it though. I created a Pirate sim girl not long ago, Catherine. And when I retextured her hair, I developed a little technique for hair that I wanted to try on this easier mesh shape, just to see, and I am pleased with the result.

So I thought I'd share it with you. I think it looks silkier and cleaner than the Maxis texture. Like the girl just finished brushing, after hours of care.



I called it "Eve & Milan hair", because Victor's daughters both had this Maxis hair for ages, and now they can have a fresh new look with it.

The mesh was already animated, so these recolors are animated too.



9 colors, all properly binned
