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.
What's an "afro" beard? In this case, it's a beard made using the texture from the Maxis afro, because I realized that I had no beards that matched with that hair type. I used three different Maxis alphas, didn't edit them at all, and only just barely edited the texture for one of the beards (which might have been the fourth one I made and then deleted because; the mesh it was on lightened the textures too much and it didn't match the hair anymore).

I highly encourage anyone who can produce a more realistic texture to make their own versions and share; I went ahead and made these because I wanted them, I'd not seen anything like them, and the Maxis texture was there to be worked with.

"Afro" Full Beard

"Afro" Goatee

"Afro" Van Dyke


DON'T claim my work is yours (that includes uploading it with Sims and not giving credit), or charge people money for it.

DO enjoy it in your game, and let me know if anything is wonky.

"Model" is an unaltered Maxis face template using Nihilin's version of Louis/Ren's skintones (not the darkest one because I wanted the beards to show better) and my own eyes (still waiting for permission check).

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sweet. I am glad someone with the knowhow did this.

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?
