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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Um, in case you are not blind you couldn't have noticed the radically YELLOW blondes and shockingly ORANGE reds that were supplied with Peggy's newest free hair. Whoooa Nelly! x.O I *had* to make new, natural colours so without further ado I give you ten shades of blondes, browns and reds ranging from albino Scandinavian ash blonde to fierce Irish titian. Or sumthin'. Ack. Needless to say one needs to download the free mesh from PeggySims2. (Working link as of 7/09)

Edit: These are binned for your convenience, thanks to Theo's super-simple-to-use SimPE color binning tool plugin.

This is a better and more realistic range of colors than what Peggy sells with her pay meshes. And don't even charge. Baffling!
Thanks for being such an excellent free creator. Everything you make is better than paysite crap.

I hate Peggy's reds. They just look AWFUL. Thanks TONS for these, but I think I'm opting to not download them as I don't think the animations are great on this mesh.
