This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I made these hats a couple of months ago for my Brokeback Mountain sims .....and.....kinda forgot to post them until now.

They're actually slightly modified versions of the Maxis cowboy hat - adults will have the short hair pictured underneath. Other age groups will still have the standard Elvis do. (Honestly I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to this type of mod, and the adult versions were all I really needed, so.... my motivation kinda ended there.)

Please report any errors you find - they work fine for me, but like I said - don't really know how to do this stuff. :D

(2 more of these hats are packaged with the above mentioned BBM sims)

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is great!! I've been looking for new cowboy hats!! Could you add some hats for the red-heads?

I don't suppose you could make some different hats for girls with shorter hair, actually just not braids, as well? I'd really appreciate it!! I don't know how to do any of this stuff, so I just rely on others to upload them so I can download them.

Thanks again for these hats!!

I'm glad you like 'em, reKate22!

But sorry to say it's pretty unlikely I'll be making more. Hair frustrates me... especially hair that requires special modding like these. So if you want more cowboy hats, you might want to post a request in the requests forum.

Funny, the black one is very similar to my ex's cowboy hat. It will complete his sim. Thanks!
