Pookleted Vulcan and Romulan Female Hair

This is a set of recolors based on NisNivis's Vulcan hair mesh. I really like this mesh, and I use it a lot in my own game. The inspiration for this project came from watching Sela (Denise Crosby) in TNG. The Romulan hair mesh seemed kind of incomplete without at least one blonde recolor.

I've always admired Pooklet's work, but until recently I never would have thought to attempt it myself. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that with a solid understanding of Photoshop's warp tool, you can apply the textures to a lot of different hairstyles. Once you have the basic texture (Volatile) made, you can just add different layers to create a whole rainbow of natural and unnatural hair colors.

Anyway, here's my first offering. Nix's Vulcan and Romulan hairs, in 18 natural shades. With the exception of Pipe Bomb (steel gray) and Time Bomb (white), everything is binned. All hair colors are available for ages Toddler-Elder. Everything has been compressorized. Hope you like it.

The Breen, Part 4- The Fenrisal

Since reading about the Breen in Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game, I've been interested in creating the Breen for Sims 2.

In Zero Sum Game, we learn that the Breen are not of a single race but a confederacy of several races. The individual's identity is kept a secret from society; only the Breen Intelligence Directorate and the individual's immediate family are aware of his/her race. This is ostensibly to prevent prejudice; as no one knows the identity of the individual, social standing and advancement are base on individual merit and not race.

The Fenrisal are one of the founding races of the Breen Confederacy. They are canoid-humanoids, and very wolflike in appearance. They typically have gold or brown fur.

The adult male and female are dressed in a recolor of Syn´s calf boot mesh.

The teen male is dressed in a recolor of the Free Time teen clothing. The child clothing is a recolor of a mesh by McKnickers at AllAboutStyle. I couldn´t find any information about the toddler mesh.

This is what the Fenrisal look like without the helmets (Hopefully completely unlike any of the other Breen races).

Here's a list of the custom content:
