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.
Finally my first hair mesh is done! Hair Curlers / Rollers for Females! I had been requesting someone to do this one forever but I finally figured out how to do it on my own and this will be the first of many! It is so much fun! The .zip and .rar files both contain the same files they are just archived in different formats. The archives contain the following: HAIR MESH for teens. HAIR MESH for YA/Adults/Elders, and recolours of four default hair colours!

As for the mesh itself it is not too detailed. This is because I wanted to keep the poly count down as much as possible. The more detailed the "rollers" were the higher the poly count was, therefore, they are fairly simple. The hair styles for Toddlers and Children stay the Maxis default mesh for shortslick hair.

Feel free to post recolours on these boards but DO NOT post this anywhere else OR alter the mesh!

Most importantly: Enjoy and tell me what you think. I have two more hair meshes planned soon that will continue this theme so if you like this "reality" stay tuned!

Hair Style:
      Natural Colours
Bin Type:
      Young Adult

These are adorable. It makes me think of my Grandmother, she was such an elegant and pretty older woman. Very nice work.

She got a corpse under her bed.
She had her fun, but now he's dead.

These look great, Innis. Will test them tonight and report here.

Idea: You might want to add the poly count in the original post somewhere, since many people are beginning to keep track of this for new meshes.

Great job

"cuter than a bug's butt" made me laugh!
These are adorable! And adds another level of realism...Mama Hick just didn't look right to me without them.
Now I need to find her housecoat and there yah go! Maybe now Elton will recognize her ... Was that his name? Her son?
Way to go..! More, more!

Heh heh... I LOVE it! Strangely enough, I was just thinking about hair curlers as a SIMS hair set a week ago.. I can see I wasn't the only one! This is going to be a popular item. All it needs now is for someone to skin a few housecoats and you can have the classic SIMS housewife of the 60s and 70s.

Innis, that's one of the most creative meshes I have ever seem (and considering the level of the artists here at MTS2 it's a huge achieving!)

Please, keep the great work!

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts! I was a joy to have made this! And there are many more to come like it hopefully! The attached picture is of my next hair mesh. I still have a few tweaks of the mesh and alignment but hopefully it should be ready by the end of the weekend if not tomorrow...or tonight

NickelLover727, it plays just fine in my EP and was made with it so I believe it is EP ready!

nikkibailey, thank you very much! I eagerly await anything you produce!

Let me know your thoughts on this new mesh as well! Give me ideas for colours and I'll make the most popular ones available!
#22 Old 22nd Apr 2005 at 11:06 PM
Awesome work Innis and the new one looks great too. I would like the towel to be available in a powder blue shade and maybe another neutral tone to match anything she's wearing.

Also you got me wondering if a wrapped up style like that could be adapted to a Hermes Silk Scarf look that was popular in the 50's.
