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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

What you get:
Realistic facial fuzz ("stubble" for you squares), all four colors and a gray, binned. The black file contains the gray, don't delete it.

Fuzz does not treat all men equally. Where some men can easy grow a full fuzz festival in a few days, others struggle to get past what my good friend calls "the pedofile beard". It's not a reflection of your manhood boys, you needn't fuss over it. There's a graceful way to wear the amount of hair you've been given.

This small upload of stubble, focussed around the mouth area, with an emphasis on the upper lip and chin area (including a realistic amount beneath the chin as well), demonstrates the proper way to wear one of those thinner growths.

Meet Chris.

Chris is a real dude. Chris doesn't get much scruff past his lower cheeks. It just doesn't happen. Chris will probably never grow a full-on ZZTop deal. But he knows that. He's not going to go around growing weird little wispy beard things like some toolbox. That would just scream I'M INSCURE ABOUT MY FUZZIES.

This is the "I just spent the last week on tour with my band and forgot to shave" fuzz growth. This is the "I stayed up all night curing cancer" beard. This is the "I spent the last two days in a hole with nothing but a potato to protect myself from the giant malicious purple bear that was attacking my house" beard.

You want to be hardcore like Chris, boys? Do yourself a favor and don't try to grow a beard if you can't. Give yourself a shave and take back your pride with the "yeah I could, but I just don't feel like it" beard.

This has been an anti-middle-school-rotten-peach-fuzz service announcement.

and a lot of other crap by me, including some eye make-ups, lip shaping lipsticks, eyebrows (which will get uploaded as soon as they're all properly binned) and the models.

I don't know if there's some personal issues behind this or what but I like the results. I'm dying laughing over the write up and I can't wait for the eyebrows. Do them first! (Does that count as a request?)

Alfred... I love you. Or at least I love your creations =]
My sims ask "Where do these divine creations come from? Who is it that allows me to look like a real manly man? I look in the mirror, & all of a sudden - BAM! Prettyness."
If only they could thank you in person.

I was driven to comment by the description. The creation is nice, and I'm sure I'll get use out of it, but with a description like the one you gave, how could I not comment?
Thanks for sharing!

It means the blond only shows up when your sim is blond, and brown when your sim is a brunette in CAS. In game, when you click on facial hair and look through the colors, each fuzzy is in the proper color catagory, or, "bin".

Snap, I'll have to upload him.
At least now I can honestly say he's ready for upload. It might take a week or so before I have time to put it together.
