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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Dear Tom, I am not a stalker. I just like your hair. Um... and your nose.
Dear sim of Tom, here is a gift of hair! It will make you pretty!

I have spent so much time on this, it's... just plain stupid. Not all at once, being a labor of love--Of hair! Love of hair, I swear to the Pretty!--I only worked on this in little pieces when I really felt like it. Every single curl on here was hand-painted to fit the mesh.
Can I just point out that even the very bottom group on the skull is painted to line up with the stick-out alpha layers in back? Can I just brag a little about how friggen hard that was? K, thanks. I'm done now.
This mesh has six huge images to color. Which is the way I like it for curls. Repetition shows up painfully with curly textures, so this lovely mapping job was an absolute necessity to get this to work. Thank you HP, I adore the original hair, and I ADORE the mesh. <333

Original hair here: Gaius by HystericalParadoxysm.

My version is somewhat shorter, and I made an attempt to suggest a slightly different shape, and frizzier style of curls. Also note, some of my detail is lost with screenshots. It'll look a little crisper and better shaded in game.

What you get:

Brown, Black, Red, Blond and Silver for Adult and Young Adult, Silver linked in for elders. Colors are near maxis match, though the texture style is not.

In this rar file there are two packages. The first is "Alfred_T+Curls", this is Brown, Black, Red, and Blond binned together with a silver for elders. The second is a separate, custom silver.

Previews of the other colors found at the bottom of the post.

CC in Pictures:
All facial fuzzies, face mask, eyes, skintone, shirt, backdrop, brows and sim are mine. Wow. I can literally say that everything in the pictures is mine, save HP's mesh and maxis programming.

On usage of texure-age:
This texture's pretty mesh specific, but you're welcome to use it. So long as you drop me a line about it, you can use my textures for whatever (not profitable) stuff you like.
Just be chill, stay away from the pay-crap, yo. Alfi don't do shit like that, yo.

Cheers and enjoy, lovelies!

Hair Style: Shiny/Realistic
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable
Bin Type: Binned
Age: Young Adult Adult Elder

Ooh ooh ooh this is wonderful! I just checked it out in game and you can totally tell that each curl was lovingly drawn to fit the mesh. Such a perfect fit. It really makes a difference. And better still, this is the exact hairstyle I've been wanting for a specific sim. Thank you!!

I adore this! Well done and much needed.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

You never fail to make something jaw-dropingly beautiful. This is stunning, you are amazing, and that's all there is to it. Thanks SO much to you for this fantastic texture and HP for the mesh.

I don't take requests. :-)

I know that we're only suppose to hit the "thanks" button when giving just a thank-you, but I wanted to let you know that I think this hair is very awesome looking. I just downloaded it so I haven't played it yet, but it does look very nice and thank you for taking all the time to get it just right. It looks amazing.

Great retexture! Always loved the style but it was a bit off. This should do the trick. Thanks again.
#20 Old 18th Dec 2009 at 6:49 PM
What a glorious retexture of a hott mesh! Retextures this well done are works of art that deserve attention. LOL--I'm currently embroiled in Sims3 but for how long, don't know. Each new patch brings more epic fail. So glad to know such high quality CC is still coming out fresh for Sims2.

Thank you VERY much for this. One of my biggest issues has been there never seems to be as much nice hair for men, as there are for ladies.
I have mostly stuff you would see on little boys, but the selection for "he-man" stuff is limited. I hope I am starting to see a trend here, where we give the guys a chance to have some options. You did a beautiful job, and I really appreciate you sharing this with us! Thanks again, P.

Just wanted to add...HystericalParoxysm, just wanted to thank YOU again for your Gaius hair...(that has been one of the mainstays of my "guys" collection.) I think it is so cool how the artists here are so generous with each much wonderful work comes from it. You are awesome!
