Based on a tutorial from Ideafire(http://www.blendernation.com/2012/10/03/fake-subsurface-scattering-tutorial/), I've made a Cycles version of the fake SSS shader. Just use dirty vertex colors and you're ready to go!

The model is from Stanford(http://graphics.stanford.edu/data/3Dscanrep/).

This blend file requires 2.64 and ABOVE.

    Woah! Really cool, I was wondering if that tutorial was applicable to Cycles too and I guess it was, Thanks!
