This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

I saw this new braided hair by SkySims and fell completely in love with it. My happiness quickly faltered when I noticed a quite obvious clipping issue with the fringe. Now, a couple of hours in Milkshape later, I have a fixed version of SkySims 219 mesh and a re-texture to share with you guys. I edited the mesh so that the fringe wouldn't clip through the hair as much as it did as well as moved some parts around to make the hair look more natural. I then converted the converted mesh for all ages, so this hair will work from toddlers-elders. If you have any other version of this mesh please replace it with this edited version, the file name is the same as the original so you can just overwrite it. It was re-textured using Io's edit of Poolet's textures and recolored in five of Pooklet's colors (all pictured except for Mail Bomb which is a grey hair which only shows up for elders) as well as Io's Bastet. The files are binned and familied (except for Io's Bastet which is custom) and elders get grey hair.
