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.

Banner is a photomanip, Not In-Game. (Needs MOAR Lenz Flare! :DDD)


This is a puffy, high ponytail I made based on one of my original characters.
You can find him HERE.
The jemstones on the hair piece are refective.

This hair has the following properties:

-All Ages
-Both Genders
-Fully Animated
-Colour Binned
-Genetically Correct
-Family Linked


Available Colours

Primary Shades

Secondary Shades


Colour Binning

The secondary (odd shades) are colour binned as followed:

Silver will show as blond
Fallow will show as Brown
Pink will show as a red
Raven will show as Black.

The only shades that appear in the custom bin will be Diamond Dust and Amethyst.


Download Instructions (Please Read):
You must download Eclipse-MFHairStarDustNymph_MESH.rar to get the meshfile.
It is not added to the recolour rars.

The family links are not the same for both recolour sets. This is because the game will only allow one family per colour bin or it gets confused.
The Primary shades are family linked together.
The Secondary shades are family linked together.
Primary and Secondary are separate families.

In this set, to make smaller files, only ONE colour in each family has a grey besides the custom shades. DO NOT delete the following colours or the elder hair will not be available for that family.

*If you download Primary shades, do not delete the BLOND hair for either gender!

*If you download the Secondary shades, do not delete the SILVER hair for either gender.

*If you download both, then you must keep both the blond and silver hair!

Deleting the blond or silver hair will remove the grey hair from that family!
If you wish to make recolours, recolour a custom shade (either Amethyst or Diamond Dust), OR use the blond or silver.


High PolyCount

Polygons = 11070 (Be CAREFUL with this!)

I really really love how OCD (for lack of a better term) you are about making sure all your creations are as perfect as possible. Seriously, I get twitchy about hair that isn't geneticized or binned, even if it's pretty, but yours always are!

OH LORD, don't get me started on how OCD I am... did you know I spent... 3 DAYS. 3 freakin DAYS, doing bone assignments and animations on the thousands of verticies in this hair?? Each age (mainly toddler) have the shoulders at different heights, so the back and the front parts I spent AGES on trying to make them cut into the body as little as possible for each age.... *dies*

Long hair is hell.

And the binning + genetics thing.. If I do something once.. I need to do it every time or it feels like I'm not keeping up with my own standards. lmao. I'm just too much of a perfectionist. It'll be the death of me. ^^


Thank you everyone, again. Really, your lovely comments mean a lot to me.

Steps by step avec les photos pour vous :D

Step 1:
Take screenshots with sims over a plain background and dim lighting (not bright outdoor sunlight), Use Printscreen:

Step 2:
Blow up the sceenshots to 200% for max detail. Then cut out each sim from their backgrounds using the magic wand + custom mask tool + invert selection. Then superimpose both sims on the same background however you want:

Step 3:
Do not merge either sim with background! But you can fill the background temporarily with a dark floodfill so that the brightness does not blind you. After, paint over the sims on a new layer with the paintbrush and airbrush tools. This is where it is teh fun!! :D

Lastly, stick a background behind your sims. (I always use in game screenshots for my backgrounds, or I paint my own). I like keeping everything sim-related. Then add whatever filters you want and/or the final touches... sparkly yay!

Shrink the image to the appropriate size (you may need to sharpen a bit after shrinking if you shrink a lot).
Then add text last.

-I do not frankensim. If my sims cannot make the pose themselves. Then that's tough bananas for them and for me. XD

**My Secrets! Let me show you them!!!
