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.
These are recolors of the elf hat, and therefore require some form of the Holiday Pack. I know it's terribly out of season, but maybe someone will still enjoy it.

All three hat colors are included, with the Maxis natural hair colors (including a gray for elders). They're binned, with proper genetic values, and are for children through elders. The child recolors also work for boys.

Thank you very much for this! These look better!

I have the holiday packs but I can't seem to find the elf hair anywhere... I would appreciate it if you could tell me where they are.

Well, these should show up in the proper color bins (e.g., the blonds in the blond category, etc.). The hats included with the original pack will not show up in BodyShop or CAS, but when you're playing a family, if you send a female Sim (or a male child) to the mirror and click on the custom hair category, you should find the original crazy-haired elf hats.

Thank you yet again SunnyMonster, It's been bugging me for a while that I could not find it. Now my sims will get to celebrate Christmas yet again, he-hee :-)

I think with seasons installed it never will be out of season. Thank you, i was just wondering why nobody made this for outdoor.
