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.
Good day MTS members. I have finished two beards for you. The first one its a bushy fumanchu. Its a long mustache with a long goatee. The second one wears it Gandalf a powerfull wizard from Lords of the Ring movie. Its a long full beard.I have included a reference picture if you want to see how Gandalf wears his beard.

These beards are perfect for your fantasy, medieval or epic sims and are basegame so it mean are compatible with any expansion pack.

Here they are some angles of the beards




I made them from teen to elder sims

Fat sims can use them because I have used CmarNYC's meshtoolkit to bodymorph it and here they are the recolourable channels: red are the roots, green the highlights and blue the tips



Any comments would be highly appreciated

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is perfect for us Medieval/Fantasy simmers! I really love the texture of the beards, it really puts the EAxis stuff to shame! Thank you so much!

Finally! A beard that actually looks like my beard looks... or did, anyway, before I had to shave it for a funeral.

The Gandalf has another use: "I lurves rockin' this beard when rollin' down the road on my hawg, flippin' the bird to the man. You ain't gonna keep me trapped in no cage."

It's about time we had some longer beards. I don't know if they clip the sim or not, but I don't care.
