Classic Pin-up in Pooklet colors
Update 2: Don't fix things when you're tired! Accidentally missed the back of Time Bomb V3, so if you downloaded Version 3 in the last half hour or so, please redownload.
Update 3: I realized that 2 fronts and 2 backs make four combinations, not three, so I've added version 4. I apologize to those of you who are overwhelmed by options, but I actually think version 4 is the best one, so I really wanted to include it.
I'm back with another round of pooklet recolors for you all. I've had this hairstyle on my to-do list for a while, but very low priority. This month's theme is vintage (although I think it should be called retro) and I'm not a huge fan of that era, so I wasn't sure what to do. I decided to research hairstyles, focusing on the pin-up styles of the 50s and 60s. When this exact hairstyle came up in my image searches, I figured I kind of had to do it Consider it a modernized version of a classic pin-up style.
I give you, XM Sims mesh 040 A in Pooklet colors. Shades included are:
Black: Dynamite, Land Mine,
Brown: Depth Charge, Brisance,
Blond: Incendiary, Volatile
Red: Explosive, Pyrotechnic
These are the shades I personally use, but if anyone wants the other pooklet colors you are welcome to request them and if I have time, I'll make them for you.
The original texture didn't have many highlights, and pooklet colors are very much highlighted, so I had to fiddle around a bit to figure out where to put them. Some things looked good on the brighter colors, but awful on the darker ones. In the end, I couldn't decide between two fronts and two backs, so I went ahead and made all four possible combinations. I leave it up to you to decide which you prefer for each color, or if you want to use all of them.
