[SUGGESTIONS] Iceland Theme 2019

Postby Viking Sarah » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:50 pm

Hey YoFans!

It's that time again to help us plan a theme and make your wishes be heard! We're in the beginning stages of putting together an upcoming theme based around the rugged beauty that is Iceland.

This theme will place you in a traditional Icelandic turf house as your base, and allow you to explore the natural beauty of Iceland. From the Northern Lights to relaxing hot springs, bundle up as we travel to the land of fire and ice!

Keep scrolling for images and some helpful tips!

If you have item suggestions for this theme, share them in this thread! To ensure your best chance at making your Yo-dreams for this theme a reality, here are some tips that will help us help you:
• Keep suggestions specific, and photos to a minimum. Photo suggestions help, but not when the post is too long to see on one screen, or when you have to explain which ambiguous bits you care for.
• Speaking of pictures, if you are quoting a post with multiple pictures, try to remove all of the ones that you're not referring to - a neat thread is an easy-to-read thread!
• Be specific! The more details, the better! "That blue thing you see in Iceland" is too vague for us to know what you're wanting.
• Be kind! This thread is intended for suggestions. Courteous, constructive posts are considered with more weight than demanding ones.

Áfram með smjörið! :D

I'd also like to add, thanks again for allowing us to become a part of the planning process for themes! I do see this as a step in the right direction, I will be doing some research online to see what suggestions I come up with in a bit. Iceland is something we've never done before, so you have the potential to make this new.

My first suggestion is... could we possibly have this theme set at night? That means I think the windows should showcase a nighttime world out, and the exterior of the house(s) should be dark. It would make more sense given that we may be showcase northern lights in this theme. Could the house also be next to a semi-frozen lake that reflects the colors of the northern lights in the skies above? That would be exquisite. With perhaps a waterfall?

How about some contemporary Icelandic clothing styles and trends? In terms of clothing colors for this theme, I think it would specifically be nice to look at brown, navy blue, grey, and white. Unless you're doing a pattern or image like the jacket in the second image below. Apologies if the images are a bit too big, I only included three of them in this post.

Aside from this, however, it would also be interesting to include a clothing tribute (of one full male and one full female outfit), of more traditional Icelandic clothing.

For female hairs, I do have a few suggestions, and I have also included five images below as demonstration. Not to say any of these would qualify as Icelandic hairstyles, but I think some of these would compliment the theme and would help structure ideas for new types of hairstyles never seen in-game.

I do think braids are a fair route to take for this theme, however, unlike your the typical BVG double-braid go-to, I suggest something with a more creative spin, as demonstrated below.
Image
And in case you do wish to create double-braids for this theme, then consider them with two colors instead of one, like the image below.
Image

It's been quite a while since we've seen straight long hair in-game that resembles the one in the following image. How about making one for this theme, except this time, with the two shorter cut/ends in the front like the image below shows, where they're wavering to the sides a bit?
Image

And I've included the following two hairstyles simply because I think they're pretty lovely and would also compliment the theme very nicely. They're very refreshing.

It would be nice to have some mountains in different sizes, shapes and colors. And I agree with the nighttime scenario.

Now, in terms of hair for the men, this may be a little more difficult but I think I got this down. I have included some images below for these two as well.

For starters... don't be afraid to design braided hairstyles for men. Men do get their hair braided too. I think the one below will complement the following theme well. If the women may get braided hairs for this theme, the men could too. Notice how the hairstyle below is fashioned, somewhat like a faux hawk? That is something I'd like to see for this theme.
Image

Now... undercuts. Different types and styles of undercuts, that we haven't gotten before. They tend to be popular in Iceland, from what I learned researching. Here's the thing though, about 80% of the hairs the males get in this game, are undercuts. I think that the following three images showcase excellent examples of undercuts that have either not been done yet for YoWorld, or we rarely ever get. They would probably fit in very well with this theme.

Behold, the 2-colored undercut.
Image

The undercuts we get are always of straight hair in this game, could we have one with long tight curls that hang to the side instead, like the one featured in the image below?
Image

And a puffy undercut? We've never seen one of those in-game to my recollection.

Hey, it's Iceland. So why not a hot tub or even hot springs for warm us up?

Oh jeez.... I hope we can get fjords and volcanic beach sand and mossy tiny waterfalls and little houses with bright coloured rooftops. I guess it depends on if you are going for modern interior Iceland, which would be clean lines, nice neutral colours, outdoor Iceland, or rural interior....
I'm excited no matter what but I would love to be able to recreate some of the stunning scenery.
Edited to say, I just read the post and traditional!! Yay. We need coffee and waffle handhelds! Waffles and coffee are like the bare minimum for hospitality when you visit!

Yeah, if it's Viking era, we need to keep the sheep downstairs and everyone in one room upstairs! I am trying to find my pictures of the turf house I visited... all I remember is lots of wood. And waffles!

Well judging from the pictures, this theme will not be taking place in Viking era, but in a traditional setting in contemporary or modern times. One of the images features a modern road, which I am sure weren't the same types of roads used in Viking eras.

I am sure if this was Viking era they would have made that a bit clearer in the first post. Correct me if I am wrong, but some of the architecture seen in the images don't appear to be from the Viking era either.

If I were to make an educated guess using the context clues provided, this theme will be taking place in contemporary times, but the home and furniture will probably be based off of more traditional customs.
