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.
Hello again,

as requested I took the maxis hat and cloned it again from eyeglasses. So by now it fits the most male hairstyles.

Remember: this mesh is BETA! Downloading on your own risk.

Feel free to recolor and to upload your recolor together with my readme and mesh to personal and free websites only. Credit where credit should be. Do not use this mesh as a donation- or pay item!

With the zip file you get the original black maxis texture. Other colors are available at my website.

Have fun!

Thank you all a lot for your kind words! I am very happy you like it!

@ simsational suzi: I think I can convert this, but there is still way too much on my request list. So you will need a lot of patience untill I will have done this.

Oooh, it's just what I've always wanted for a very long time. Thank you so much for this, it's wonderful.

But, Besen, do you think you could Puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase make a modified version of this which is compatible with Plicka's really long hair mesh? I'd be so grateful, as I've wanted a male sim with REALLY long hair and a top hat ever since I first got TS2 almost a year ago.

It's my dream to have a self-sim, as many of us here do, and only Plicka's hair is long enough, but it doesn't fit with this Accessory.

Is there any chance you might be willing to make a slightly wider version that sits higher off the head so that it matches up with the Plicka hair?


Thanks ever so much, for this hat, but uber-huge thanks if you do make a re-modelled version.
