This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
For this months theme, Winter Wonderland, I decided to recolor hairstyles with winter hats. I live in Sweden, and grew up with cold snowy winters so when I think of winter wonderland it's snowy and beautiful, but very cold. Just the kind of weather where you want to wear a warm cosy hat!

I went over my CC hairs, and found two that I thought perfect for this. One of them was Peggy mesh 7204, and that's what I have for you here. I am absolute crap at creating fabric textures, so I decided to keep some of Peggy's original hat recolors but change the hair to pooklet. The hats are photoskinned, so if that bugs you I'm sorry. See the screenshots above for how it looks.

I hope you and your simmies enjoy these on those cold snowy winter days (if you have Seasons and play with winter, that is ). As usual I can't pick which combinations to make, so all 10 hair colors come in each of the three hat colors. Who am I to say redheads can't have a red hat?

Pooklet scheme
As usual I have made this in the Pooklet colors I use.

Family 1: Dynamite, Depth Charge, Incendiary, Explosive, Mail Bomb
Family 2: Land Mine, Brisance, Volatile, Pyrotechnic, Time Bomb

Hats come in Peggy's original blue, red and pink. Each hat recolor has it's own family set.

Each of the hat recolors can be seen from the front, sides and back. Red can be seen with Land Mine, pink with Incendiary, and blue with Depth Charge and Explosive.

Mesh information
Polycount is 12966 VERY HIGH POLY For more information about polycounts and why they matter, see this article at the Sims Wiki. If you experience lag, you should probably not use this hair as it will strain your computer.

Mesh package is called is Peggy_Fh110101_mesh.package.

Due to peggyzone being down, I have included the mesh in a separate zip. If Peggy ever returns, I will remove the zip.

Credits
- Peggyzone for the mesh, and the hat recolors. As her site is down I can't link to her original creation, but if you'd like to see them, they can be seen in this topic at simscave. Search for mesh number 7204 to find it. It's 2011 Set 1.
- Pooklet for the lovely pooklet hair colors
- Iakoa for the GIMP curves I used to create this

Programs used
- Bodyshop
- GIMP
- MS Paint
- CatOfEvilGenius' tooltip adder (found here. I highly recommend it, very useful tool)
- jfade's compressorizer

FAQ
What does family'd mean?
Family means that if your Sim has a hairstyle, and you switch from one haircolor to another, the game remembers the hairstyle and your Sim wears the same one but in the new color. It also means that when a Sim ages up, it'll keep the same hairstyle (if that age group is available).

What does pooklet'd mean?
Pooklet was a creator who created a set color scheme for hairstyles. Pooklet'd means that the recolors have been done in the pooklet color scheme, and will match other recolors that are pooklet. They are great if you want your Sims to change their hairstyle without magically changing the shade of their hair.

What is polycount and why does it matter?
See this great article on the Wiki for more information.
