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.
Several folks had mentioned they'd like to see my New Roman hair for females, and seeing as I like short hair on girls and have figured out some relatively speedy ways of doing gender conversions, I decided to go ahead and do so.

This short, pixie-type hair is available for all ages: toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder, with the same colours for all ages (no grey elders!)

I have uploaded the mesh separately from the recolours: make sure you grab the recolours and a mesh file (read below for important info on that!). The contents are labeled so you can delete any recolours you don't want. All shades have fixed brow colours (blonde for the white, black for the wine and salt and pepper, all appropriate brows for the natural colours) and the natural shades work genetically, in the correct colour bins.

912 polygons, 619 vertices (low to average).

Which mesh file to download?

If you already have my New Roman hair for males, or you are planning on getting it too, download the file that starts with HMESH that says "Add-On_to_NewRoman" in the filename. This uses the same mesh for the child and toddler as the male version, and there's no sense in having duplicate meshes if you don't need them.

If you do not have my New Roman hair for males and are not planning on getting it, download the file that starts with HMESH that includes "Standalone" in the filename. This includes the meshes for the child and toddler version, so this will work properly for all ages even if you have not gotten my New Roman mesh for males.

Please don't comment if you're just going to request something: I don't take requests unless otherwise noted.

Model Credits: Rebecca's a new model of mine, and I'll be uploading her soon. Look for her coming shortly.

Thanks to:
  • Tiggerypum, for teaching me so much about meshing.
  • Melodie9, for mesh used to clone this so I could make it work properly for all ages.
  • Wes_h, for the Unimesh plugins for Milkshape, used in the creation of this mesh.
  • Dr Pixel, for all kinds of various bits of useful meshing info that have helped me along the way.
  • Everyone who has contributed to the creation and development of SimPE.
  • MTS2, the rest of the staff, and Delphy, for creating a such a fantastic place to learn and share information, so I could figure out how to do cool stuff like this.

This is amazing, and I really really like Rebecca so I'm looking forward to her too.
But when I try to extract the recolors package, WinRAR says the file is corrupt really sucks, because the hair looks great on females

I think I like this hair even better on women than men (if that's even possible.) Thank you so much for this wonderful conversion mesh!

Thanks a lot!
thank you VERY much HystericalParoxysm. I've missed more short hairstyles for girls.
Some of my female sims are so beutiful with short hair. I have only a few of them.

I've made a female student of your skin, the cold white, i have her in my avatar. Now i can give her a new black hairstyle with short hair. You'r work are too good to be true. I've noticed you care for everyone, - made dark skins, dark eyes, light skins, light eyes. You're a real artist girl. When i make sims now, i mostly use your skins
and eyes. I just love your work.
