Hey everyone! My name is metalmoose and I retexture hair for The Sims 3. I retexture what I feel like playing with, but feel free to send me any suggestions!

This Scar is a Fleck On My Porcelain Skin (ElexisPeggy 903 Moose'd)

So as soon as I saw this I felt a crushing sadness in my heart because I knew I wouldn't be able to even make my own version for this hairstyle. Elexis did so much incredible work on this mesh and when she posted it she stated that she did not want meshes included in ANY retextures, and my heart sank. But because I love the hair so much (and because I'm a terrible person and made my own version anyway (I wasn't going to post it, I swear)) I asked her if she would be horrendously opposed to my posting a version of her hair with my textures and my morphs/thin morphs, and she said YES!

Because this hair is 12,000 polygons, there were no morphs, because typically hairs over 10,000 polys tend to explode when morphs are added. I have a very specific method of manipulating meshes so that they don't explode when morphs are added, and it happened to work out of me this time around, so this version has morphs added. Additionally, because the hair is now closer to Sims' breasts when they are thin, I added some minor breast assignments so the hair is also breast slider compatible as well. I thought about adding another LOD (because LOD0 and LOD1 are the same) but then I realized that it wouldn't look nearly as nice and wouldn't morph or animate as well as this version does, so I kept the polycount for LOD1 high. Oh and if it wasn't obvious, I made the hair less floaty by adding morphs, it almost sits on the chest and shoulders now.

This hairstyle's name is based on a song by Stars called Your Ex-Lover Is Dead. It may be one of the most gorgeous songs I've ever heard.

Last time I checked, both LOD0 and LOD1 were 12,220 polygons, but I could be slightly off on that number. 
*This hairstyle is for teen-elder females only. This hair is much too good for children.*
This hairstyle is compatible with breast and fat sliders. As far as I can tell, it doesn't seem to clip too much at full fatness.

DISCLAIMER: I did not mesh this. Peggy had the idea and did some of the meshing, Elexis made it useable by doing some INCREDIBLE meshing of her own. The morphs and textures are mine, but everything else belongs to Elexis. Her version is here.

If you enjoy my work, you might enjoy my simblr, but you can also follow me here on blogger or comment on my work to let me know!

Let me know if you have any issues with this specific hair. I will do my best to fix them.

If you would like to use this in picture taking or video recording, then please do so by all means, I'd be honored. Please never claim as your own or reupload. Reuploads are only okay with sim bundles, in which case please give me credit. If you don't plan on crediting me and Elexis, please don't include it with your sims. Retextures for this specific hair require some hoop jumping. Normally I'd tell all of you not to retexture until December 1st, 2012, but because of Elexis' TOU, you're going to have to ask her first. I don't require that you ask me, but on this hair, I require that you ask Elexis' permission to retex. If you violate either of these rules (asking Elexis and my 3 week rule), I may ask you to take your retex down. And if you refuse, I will do my best to publicly defame you. Please don't steal my textures or claim as your own.
