Four Standard Recolors for Kavar's Armani Hair

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.
These are especially for Ailias, who provoked an entertaining train of thought about realism, and KSK, who made the most delicious pair of vinyl pants for male sims :skull:with skull buckle:skull:, one of my very first downloads ever!

These are my retextures of Kavar's Armani hair, in the four standard colors. You will be pleased to note that I have placed them in the proper bins (see, I can conform, on occasion). I'm totally inexperienced at re-texturing, and have new admiration for the great and famous hairmakers out there. These are far from perfect, but I just can't deal with tweaking them anymore, so I hope you like them anyway.

You absolutely have to GET THE MESH from Kavar.

Children's textures are included. I recolored some of Louis' textures for the kids, but they use a Maxis mesh.

That's it!

Oooh, awesome. This hairstyle makes me think of Trent Reznor so much, I swear I shall go insane. *Twitching.* You did a fabulous job. And you should seriously upload your models. Hint hint.

I had previously gotten the mesh, because it's such fantastic male hairstyle, so I was thrilled to see these absolutely gorgeous recolors. Thank you!

Gorgeous, thanks for sharing. :D

Fabulous job! I like how they look slightly shiny. Thanks
#7 Old 14th Mar 2006 at 10:09 PM
Thanks! I have had this mesh for ages and rarely use it because I'm not crazy about the texture. Somehow, I've never gotten around to doing it myself either, and yours is really very lovely and shiny so I shall download yours ^_^

I'm not gonna do it, and you can't make me!

Thankyou so much, these textures are fantastic. I'll definitely be using the incredible Kavar mesh now it has some beautiful textures to go on it to do it justice.

Good job, thanks again :D

Yay! Shiny, Happy People! Thanks for the compliments - you don't know how I was sweatin' it, not being very experienced with Photoshop.

Madness requested Lucian (in black hair on this thread), and I just uploaded him.

P.S. Ginger, I just may try to sim Trent (although he's probably been done). Little did I know (Wikipedia), that he couldn't get a girlfriend in high school. And here I was, just one state away, and I couldn't get a date, either! Dang, missed opportunities...

Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. There is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof-V

A very needed addition to my collection of male hair. Thank-you for making more men's items, there isn't nearly enough.

Ooooooooohhhh! I got a note from Kavar, I got a note from *Kavar*! It doesn't take much to make a girl happy, except maybe a comment from one of her modding idols :banana: And one from Beosboxboy, too! I'm leaving the building trade, and becoming a hairstylist!

I'm beginning to think there is nothing about Sims that you can not do. This hair retexture is stunning. I hope you do more like this for Kavar's other meshes. His meshes and your textures are an incredible combination. You said they are not perfect but I can't see how they are not. I got to play with Lucian for a little while before my game crashed this most recent time. Awesome. And a couple of crashes ago I had some of your pixies. What you did with recoloring Louis' skintones was also amazing.

Oh these are really lovely! I can't wait to take these into Body Shop and stick them on something sexy! An amazing mesh to begin with, and you made such wonderful textures for them I know the black one is going to get quite a thrashing from me!
Bravo, I hope to see many more things from you

BTW, I am absolutely DYING to know where you got those goggles (blonde pic) from? Does anybody know?
