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.
UPDATE: In case you're a hoarder (like myself), you can now download all ten of these at my Dropbox in one conveniently huge archive. **This archive has been updated with the new file names**

UPDATE 8/23/15: Fickle as I am, I decided to rename four of the facial hairs, since I didn't care for their names being so non-Simmie. Plus, I can. So I changed the following names: Amish is now Thick Chin Curtain, Goatee is now Van Dyke (okay, named after a real-world person, you got me), Hitler is now Toothbrush, and Lincoln is Chin Curtain, not to be confused with the Thick Chin Curtain.

Fuzzies! Lots of them! Now your Sim men can sport nifty facial hair (or hide a weak chin) in their favorite Pooklet Naturals shade.

This is actually a set of retextures of Phaenoh's Stache Blast Set. The alphas for these were done by her (I only slightly edited them), so please, go thank her for letting me share these.

There are a total of ten different beards, sideburns, and moustaches for your hairy pleasure. No mesh is required. They are retextures of base game facial hair, so anybody can use them. They are available for just men, only the manliest of men, and are available to teens, young adults (I believe), adults, and elders.

Inside each folder are 20 different shades, as I am a hair hog and use four families of Pooklet's Natural Shades. These are clearly labeled, so just toss the ones you don't want. Since I use GIMP, these are approximations of Pooklet's shades, kindly provided by IaKoa. I am sorry if they don't quite match up to other Pooklet'd hairs. They have been familied and binned thanks to Cat's Hair Binner.

All colors have kept their gray, so you can bin them with the Hair Binner yourself and use the shades you prefer.

Family One is Dynamite (black), Depth Charge (brown), Incendiary (blond), Explosive (red), and Pipe Bomb (gray).

Family Two is Shrapnel (black), Safety Fuse (brown), Volatile (blond), Pyrotechnic (red), and Smoke Bomb (gray). **Smoke Bomb is a shade created and shared by Almighty Hat.

Family Three is Land Mine (black), Fission (brown), Grenade (blond), Comburent (red), and Mail Bomb (gray).

Family Four is Flash Powder (black), Brisance (brown), Primer (blond), Molotov (red), and Time Bomb (gray).

Have any questions, comments, observations, or random thoughts? Share them in the comments.



Additional Credits:
Phaenoh, for letting me share these retextures of her wonderful Stache Blast.

Pooklet, IaKoa, and Almighty Hat, without whom I wouldn't have so many hair colors to choose from. SimPE and Cat's Hair Binner.

Sims 2, Body Shop, GIMP, and Paintshop Pro x6.

lol, sadly, I think they'd exceed the limit for what MTS allows. But I can upload them in one folder to my Dropbox and link it in the thread.

Thanks for the comments, HonokaAizawa and Cat! I'm so glad the dropbox version will be useful for others. With my silly Internet, I would gasp at downloading such a large file at once, but it's cool it works out for others. :D

Oooo, SleepyTabby makin' my Sim's boo handsome.



And then when you steal your sister's boo to show the thinner one because I couldn't see it on the first boo.



However her elderly father is lookin' a little like he's planning a genocide with that smile.



And, yes, they all have your skins and eyes on them.

These all look fantastic and I can't wait to use them in my game!

Though, might I suggest that the "Hitler mustache" be renamed the toothbrush or Chaplin mustache (because it was Charlie Chaplin who originally popularized the style long before Hitler adopted it). Just thought it'd be nice if it were attributed with its true originator. Plus it'd make a nice appeal for silent film fans.

Let's admit it; It is totally the Hitler 'stache. If people immediately thought Charlie Chaplin then it wouldn't be so taboo to wear it. But your Sims don't know that.

Well, I don't know how much credit I take for the names -- they all have the same name as Phaenoh's, since these are simple retextures.

Cool pics, by the way, Annything! It looks like your Sim's family keeps growing! (Now with fuzzies, too.)

Apparently, that is what the public thinks of it these days. Though, when I read about its true origin, I ended up re-identifying it as the "Chaplin 'stache."

Still, I'll use it and all the other facial hairs featured in this mod in my game. Because I believe that my Sims should have a wide-variety of choices, which is why I'm one of those hoarder simmers. :p

Finally! I have been wanting to give my male sims some facial hair to match my default replacements, but none really worked. Now I can!
