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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are three different sideburns for your sim guys! I made them for my regency and Victorian gents, but why let it stop there? Sims of all eras should have the right to cover their cheeks with hair!

See the picture below. See the numbers. They correspond with the numbers I've attached to the .rar-files, so you know what you're downloading. And please see the additional pictures for much larger and clearer screenshots.



All sideburns come in the four standard maxis colours and are binned (brown is automatically selected for a sim with brown hair etc.) They will show up in the "Beards"-section of Bodyshop/CAF. No real sideburns were harmed in the process of making these pixel sideburns.

These look really good and I cant wait to use them in-game. The only problem I am having is that I cannot extract 1 or 3 from from its archive as it says that the files are corrupted or whatnot. 2 extracts without problem though.

Try to download them again, sometimes a .rar get's corrupted while downloading. I just tested and I could extract the files as usual

I can't believe 165 people have thanked this thread! I thought I'd get max three comments and maybe ten thanks. So thank you for your comments everyone, I'm glad you enjoy my humble work!

These are awesome... I love thick sideburns on men. I guess that's what I get for growing up with Elvis on my mind. Lol

Oh, I say! Jolly good! Smashing! Simply Marvelous! And all that stuff that an old-era guy with a big mustache or any assortment of fuzzy sideburns might say. These are great! Thanks a bunch.
