These two hairs are so similar that one could be the other with the front pulled back. But they're so pretty that I had to retexture them both ;)

Twist and shout!

So I did a couple of twists retextures! I'm very pleased with how they came out, and I'm excited to share them with you :)

Hair squared.

Tonight I have two hairs, each in Io's textures by me and in Trapping's twists by ZeroDark, recolored by me.

Two more hairs and a skirt set.

I have a lot of free time on my hands right now, so what better to keep me busy than creating? :)

Two old hairs.

Admittedly I do love some high-poly 3t2 and 4t2 hairs, but at the same time there's something so satisfying about taking old ones and making them pretty. So I have two hairs for you from way back when.

Coolsims 60 & Peggy Fh090112

These two hairs were a bit of a pain in the ass, because I couldn't do them via the SimPE import method - there were weird transparencies that wouldn't go away. So I had to do them the regular Bodyshop way which takes forever when you're doing 46 recolors. But whatever, they're fixed now, and I'm happy with them.  (A big thank you to Digital Angels for helping me figure out the problem!)

3 more Newsea hairs

If you didn't figure it out already, I love me some Newsea hairs. (It's a shame they're not animated, though...)  So here are 3 more, in Io's textures as usual.

Some Hair.

I can't for the life of me figure out which number to call Peggy's hairs, so for the sake of simplicity I'm calling them by the name on the mesh. (If that's not simpler for anyone else, I'm sorry!)

Hair Mini-Dump: 4 hairs in Io's textures

Me, 5 months ago: "I retextured a hair! It deserves a digital art masterpiece for a preview!"
Me, now: "Uh, here's some hairs I've been meaning to upload, have this lazy-ass preview pic of all of them."

I don't even have the usual lengthy commentary to add, so for once, just have some hair :D  As usual they come in these colors and all naturals except grays are binned but not familied. The Volatile base .png is included for anyone who wants to make recolors.

Hair Add-ons: Cazy/Digital Angels

So... Digital Angels is one of my fave creators, and I've got more of her hair retextures than anyone else's. And of course I need my Sims to have a million hair colors to choose from, so I like to make more recolors. I figured why not upload them, because there's always a chance someone else might want them.

GoS May 2016 Monthly Theme Contribution

I had been meaning to retexture the FT flamenco dancer hair for a long time, and the entertainment/music part of May's "Triple Threat" theme gave me the inspiration to do it. Then I decided to do the men's flamenco hat, and make defaults, and it kept going from there.

Rose Gudai 009 and the mapping of DOOM!

Rose Gudai 009 hair preview

(shown in Nesert)
CF-EF / Polycount: 5359

Man, this hair. This hair nearly had me in tears, the mapping was such a nightmare. Now I am in no place to criticize mesh work, because I can't do it myself, but whatever.  I really wanted this classy, elegant updo in my game, so I plodded through and I'm satisfied with the results.

I can't figure out how this 'do is created in real life, even if my own hair is long enough to try it. It's all pulled into a mysterious donut of hair where the ends are neatly concealed. However, I just found Rose's original preview on Sims Cave, and it was made to go with a hairpiece accessory which probably hides that part. When it comes to pixel doll hair I'm not too concerned whether the style can be realistically pulled off, so whatever.

Please note that the mesh has some issues, most notably a gap in the back that for some reason is not visible in Bodyshop except in the teen mesh. I didn't think to age down my (adult) model to check the other ages in-game. You can see two small gaps on the top and left in the title pic, the top one is where a bunch of the pieces meet. There are a few flickery dots when you turn the sim around in BS. I'm a very fussy person and I can live with these issues, so hopefully they won't be a dealbreaker for most people. (It is an old mesh, after all).

Comes in these colors, naturals (except grays) are binned but not familied. Bastet is not binned so you have the option to leave it in custom if you want. The mesh is included and files are compressorized as always.

Hair Add-ons: Newsea Sakura F & M with Twists

I fulfilled a request at GoS a month ago for the rest of Pooklet's colors for ZeroDark's retexture of Newsea Sakura with Trapping's twists.  I did more recolors later and slapped them all on the F2M mesh.

Newsea Sakura F & M hair preview

(shown in Hangfire (TM) and Flash Powder (AF))
F & M / All Ages / Polycount: F - 9262, M - 9367

I was all ready to upload them when I noticed a little strip of transparency on the side of the hair I hadn't noticed before. It was pretty minor by most people's standards, but I happen to be a huge perfectionist with OCD and I couldn't let it go. I drove myself nuts trying to figure out the problem, I did some further edits to the alpha but that didn't entirely fix it. It turns out that something (SimPE? DDS utilities?) didn't like the way I save my textures in Photoshop and I had to apply the layer mask to each recolor individually instead of grouping them with the mask on the group. I'm sure I'm not making much sense to some people, but anyway, it's fixed and here it is.  ^_^

ZeroDark did Dynamite, Depth Charge, Volatile, Explosive, Mail Bomb, and Bastet, so if you want those grab them at the link above. I did the rest of these colors.

Both F & M work for all ages, naturals (except grays) are binned but not familied. Meshes are included. I'm sorry the male recolors are bigger than the female in filesize - the M version has a third texture that was a huge blank and I don't know if anything can be done with that. If so, let me know and I'll change it.

First entry, here goes...

I've already uploaded a few things to GoS, but I didn't get my lazy ass to set up this journal until now.

This was not only my very first upload anywhere ever, but my first hair retexture - my contribution for the GoS September 2015 monthly theme. Why oh why did I choose a mesh with such atrocious mapping?  Because I'm a glutton for punishment, apparently.

It was all ages originally, but I removed the toddler age because it looked weird.

Here's a couple more previews (Isis and Sunspot):

This was the first and last time I will do a hair in every goddamn color action that exists :D  There are 112 recolors total, naturals are binned except grays, not familied so you can do it however you want. (Bastet is in the naturals rar with the rest of Io's colors, I don't usually bin it but I did this time). Mesh is included & all files compressorized.
