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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Not that there was anything wrong with the texture to begin with. I was just sitting around trying to do something entirely different, when I saw a picture of some curly hair and this mesh threw itself at me. Literally. It said "ALFI! WASTE YOUR TIME OBSESSIVELY TURNING ME INTO SOMETHING MORE CLOSELY RESEMBLING AN OBSCURE 80S CULT FILM STAR'S FLUFFY PRETTINESS OF A JEWFRO".

So I made this all new texture/alpha. Just cuz. I apparently have no life.

B is for Brown. My Sim of Clancy Brown shows off his new prettiness:

I attacked the curls a little different that HP (Cherub Curly Hair is HERE). The idea is that it should be looser and the curls less--and I mean no insult here--noodley looking. It's just a little bit different curl style. This is such a genius mesh. Limiting, but genius. I don't have as much control over the general shape as I would have liked, but I was able to make it look fuller up close. And more realistic, which isn't necessarily what I set out to do. I just enjoy detail too much, that's what I get.

I've got six colors for you. All ages, just like the original. Black, blond, brown and red are binned and linked and such in a single package labeled "Alfred_BCurls" (tis shiny, yes, but under that the colors are straight up maxis match. Except the black is black and the blond doesn't look like puke.)

The white is linked to the normal colors, obviously; but I've included a second, separate silver as well. Found in the custom bin. Also, just on the off chance any one else wants it, Clancy's hair is somewhere in between true Maxis brown and blond. I had to make a second brown for him (binned by itself). And hell if I'm going to go through all this trouble only to be unable to post a bunch of pictures of my new pet!

Yep. That's it.

CC in pictures:
Um... eyebrows and facial fuzzies are mine. Various lipsticks are mine. Models are mine. Various facemasks are mine and not uploaded.
Many thanks to Wicked_Poppies, who's nose mask serendipitously matched Clancy PERFECTLY.

Idolatry of the Twitch, by Twitchhugstrees, with edits by me.
And one Idolatry of the Flesh as well by HP

If you want to use my textures, please ask first. Just want to know what comings and goings my pixels are making, you know? Don't steal, reupload, eat and do that stuff. Yadda, yadda, yadda. You know the drill. Just follow the golden rule.
