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.
I made my first working hair mesh I needed more period appropriate hair for my medieval hood, so I started with my nuns. The texture is a simple brushed linen fabric with handpainted highlights and shadows. It stays on in all categories.

For the mesh itself, I took the ninja mask from OFB and cut off the piece covering the face and added Aquilegia's edit of the nightlife vampire hair for the veil. It was a bit ambitious for my skill level but I finally got it working. I had to play around with the bone tool a bit so it would animate like a veil instead of hair.

There are two versions included. One shows up in all hair color bins in CAS (it uses one texture like the AM chainmaille hair from the Castle Set to save space in your downloads folder- thank you AlmightyHat!) but does not show up in bodyshop and the other is in the custom bin to be used for you to make new textures from with. If you don't want to make new textures you can delete the file marked custom. Hair is set to hat for turn on/turn offs and unnecessary ages removed with the color binning tool.

Credit and thanks to Aquilegia for the use of her nightlife vampire hair edit for the veil and her amazing Hair Meshing Reference Sheet . I wouldn't have been able make this mesh without her help .
