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 present my 1st hair mesh - "Afro Puffs". It took me awhile to make because it is my 1st hair mesh, but I finally completed it with the help of my friend, Nouk. She helped me out quite a bit, cleaned up my messes, and made it possible for me to finally finish my new hair. So I am giving her A LOT of credit for helping me out so much. Thank you very much, Nouk!! I do appreciate all of your help. And I also want to give much deserved credit to Arcia. She was there to help me out from the beginning, and I do greatly appreciate your help!! So sorry not to have mentioned you from the beginning like I should have. Thank you for all that you have done for me. Thank you both sooo much.

Afro Puffs, along with the Afro, is a hairstyle from the 70's that was worn then and is still worn, so I wanted to make this nice hairstyle available for the Sims to proudly wear. It comes with a nice Afro texture (a Maxis-edited Afro texture applied by me) for more authenticity. I think it is a cute hairstyle, and hopefully you will too!!

***Adult Female Sim available here:

~ For all ages (toddler - elder)
~ Comes in 3 colors (black, brown, and red)
I think it looks better on darker tones of hair, so it doesn't
come in blonde.

~ All are color binned

Policy details:
~ Feel free to recolor and/or retexture. Can include with uploaded Sims. If used, please give credit and link back to this thread.

Thanks everyone. I'm glad you like it!! Shorty Boo, the skintone came from Serasims. I used the skin from the Tyson Beckford Sim on the site and made her.

It's so cute and you did it very well as I looked at some pictures of Afro puffs on looks so similar. You did such a good job for a first hair mesh, I can see the "Nokie" touch on the texture.
Good job again, and you models are great as well !
#13 Old 19th Nov 2006 at 1:39 PM
Wow. These are very beautiful hair styles.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
