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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Based on an older hairstyle, more braids!
Expanding on the cornrow style, but with different lengths or styles.
3 other options for the ladies that like cornrows and braids.


All styles :
- Binned, familied, correct eyebrows, 2 greys.
- All ages
- 8 colors

The short version is love. All three are going to get a great deal of use in my game. I'm really impressed to see the extra work you went to in response to the feedback you received. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks so very, very much. I overuse your meshes in my game, especially the braided bun, so these will be a nice transition for my sims.

o0o0o0o hmm to download or not. The long one would be perfect for Ophelia but i just defaulted Teru's Dune set for personal use so conflicted since now all my sims are pale.

Guess it couldn't hurt to try it out. Thanks, maybe i'll get around to making some recolors of these i'll actually like since i can never get color choices right.

No "Download all" option? I grabbed all three; they are really beautiful sets Anouk! As always your content is beautiful quality and very inspiring (I'm tempted to retexture to see what other braid textures look nice on them!). Thank you

Ohhh I forgot something...
The braids are mapped in a way that you can use 3 different colors and they are all mixed together... I should post the uv maps!

Thanks everyone for downloading and commenting :D

I'm astonished by how much work this must have taken! I envy your meshing skills. By the way, I downloaded an instruction book called "Hands on Milkshape: First Steps in 3D Modeling" and was wondering whether you used it and if it helped you effectively.

No, I haven't used that book, I have mostly used tutorials by nice people here at Modthesims
Right now I do most of my editing in 3dsmax, and then do the bone assignments in Milkshape.
Also, my meshing skills aren't that great, but I'm having fun Thanks for the compliments
