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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I think I beat my own record for hair length! This hair is longer than Demonic hair was, and steel look and animate well And I mean they are really animated – not only move with the body parts, but although move in the wind and so on I’m so proud I learned to do this! I’ll probably update my previous meshes with animation soon, so check for updates from time to time. It looks absolutely fantastic in game, so alive…
This mesh was very hard to make and to animate, I honestly consider it one of my most complicated creations ever, and an illustration of my development as a creator
This mesh has a teen version, but no child or toddler – they’ll probably will look weird with such a long hair anyway, but all the ages are recolored.
Natural colors are color categorized, un natural are in custom bin.
You need mesh file for any of the recolor sets to work.
I made some re textured recolors, that look more silky, and left some hand painted once, for a messy hair.
The mesh has 9 layers, so recolor package is big, but retexturing it is very simple – since I made is from sketch I took care to make it as easy as possible.
Polygon count – 1772, I’m proud of this too – it’s fairy low for a hair this long and complex.
This mesh was created using Milk Shape 1.7.7a, Wess UniMesh Plugin, and Adobe Photoshop for texturing

Amazing, you totally overdid yourself! It's so great to have people like you around, I always feel malesims don't get enough attention.

And your blonde model is just gorgeous. Is there a chance you're going to upload him?

Sshodan, you have outdone yourself! Excellent job!

I would -really- love to see the older meshes updated with animation. That would be AWESOME!

Though if you do update, could you please please add them as "new" submissions? If you just update the existing files, I might never notice that they've been updated. And I definitely don't want to miss them! :D

This is simply AMAZING! It's one of the VERY BEST hairs I have found for sims, ever(It's the top long male hairstyle as well)! This is fantastic; the aniations are great, and something about this hair is extremely elegant and gourgeous! =D
I know you're going to absolutely hate me for asking this, but; could you convert this to females? This is one of the best hairs I've seen, and it'd be a shame for it to be male-only; I can name a large number of my female sims that would look stunning with this hair, especially some of the mermaids! PLEASE, please PLEASE make it for females...you are EXTREMELY talented at this!
Female or not, wonderful job! Keep up the great work, I love it!

You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
