Wow.. that's a tough question for me, as we have now had soooooo many themes over the last 13yrs.

Zynga Era - would be between Mafia and Elite. Mafia only because it was that theme that cemented my addition to this game and I went IN with both feet. :haha: So I have a sentimental attachment to that theme. Elite, because that entire weekend of special sales was an awesome time in game and on the boards. Everyone was so excited the game felt truly alive and electric and it was awesome to be a part of all that.

BVG - The April Fool - Upside Down and the Super Stickerbook Theme. These because of the ingenuity and execution. Loved how the Vikings were able to truly surprise and engage the game with such originality.

My saved outfits are not really fav outfits as I seem to always save an outfit because I want to try something else on real quick and want to be able to return to the outfit I wearing :haha: :haha:

My very favorite theme is Emerald City, which I missed entirely. There were a bunch of awesome Zynga themes that I either didn't have money to buy at the time, or I just flat missed. I would have made a way to get the EC property and avenue at the very least. So I made my own Oz train out of the Yorient Express train.

I wanted to love Contemporary Oz, but it's mostly disappointing so far. For reference, the Wizard of Oz is my 2nd favorite movie.

My next favorite theme is Pixie's Borough. I have decorated two of those properties & bought another for future. I also love Enchanted, Secret Garden, Fairy Forest, Fairytale Storybook & ones like that. Mount Yolympus was fun.

The theme that sparked my creativity most was Quaint Countryside. I went hog wild with that property. I bought and decorated two yc Countryside Cottages & 7 (yes, seven) coin Countryside Cabins -- to each of which I linked a trailer for extra rooms. That was at the same time as the original Shabby Chic GE, so one Cottage & one cabin and several avenues are all Shabby Chic.

I also love the Zombie Apocalypse theme :)

One of the themes that I love for general "nicer" decor is the Boardwalk Casino. It has such nice couches and rich colors.

Themes that surprised me (I enjoyed much more than I thought I would): Green Haven, Icelandic Escape, Tiny Home Living, & Realm of Shadows.

I love to dress up as much as I love to decorate! I have over 389 saved outfits and I usually start out a new outfit by using a recently saved one (so I don't have to completely redo the makeup). My niece used to play with me when she was younger & she was a fan of "clear all" on your avi. That idea throws me into night sweats.
:sick:

I try to participate in most themes, but if I don't care for one, I'll only do the dress up part (mostly for the GEs).

My favorite GEs were Shabby Chic 1 & 2, Bohemian, Patchwork, & Haunted Dollhouse.

My least favorite themes (you did not ask, but why not offer!): Inside a Beehive (altho I love the Rose Updo hair & the cat peeking in the window decor), Snowville decor (some of the clothing is ok & I wish I had those white boots), Shabby Shriek (HUGE letdown), Modern Royalty, and Medievel Mastery. My least favorite GEs were Krampus, Airport, and several I can't recall as I blotted them from my memory.

I have several favorite themes:

Older themes - Rome, Casa, Fairytale Fantasy, India
Newer themes - Medieval, Parisian, Fairytale

I will evolve my outfits if I am playing regularly. I have like 3 go-to outfits I wear though. I also change outfits according to the season

Question 1: What is your favorite theme(s) on here and why?
Question 2: Do you tend to go back to your favorite saved outfit or your style evolve with each new theme?

Much love! :heart: :)



1) Like many in here, I do not have just one favorite theme, there are so many that I liked.. I have favorite 'Categories of homes' and link them all together to form little cities.
I tend to love the Fantasy based themes the most, they speak to my particular variety of imagination.
Some categories I tend to have more homes and avenues than others, are Steampunk genres, Outer Space, Fairies, Medieval Fantasy, Dragon fantasies, and a few Alice in Wonderlands thrown in the mix.

I have the least homes that are based in reality, most of the reality homes I own are Holiday themed base-but I manage to throw some fantasy in those too though.
I really really do not like Contemporary Styling-I do not participate in the Contemporary or Modern Furniture themes.



2) As far as outfits go, mine morph all the time as new awesome things get released in game. I do go through my wardrobe of 210 saved outfits and update them frequently with a new item or two.
I have 35 item slots available for each outfit, so there is usually room to add or swap out a new piece or two to any of my outfits..



210 saved outfit! Wow, Now I wanna take a tour of your closet! :D :thumbsup:

Hey Cali! :hug:

My favorite themes are the creepy ones! :haha: :quiet:

I tend to revisit outfits made previously based on the theme or time of year. If the theme clothing inspires me I will make a look for it even if it is a normal theme. :haha: On the flip side, if I don't like a theme I will normally revert to my weird looks......it is Halloween in my head all the time..... :haha: :shocked: :quiet:



Good evening Autumn Glory :hug:
It might not be evident ;), but I do dig the creepy looks! :D :thumbsup:

I think my favorite themes would be the fantasy themes or any of the fall themes.

My outfits depends on my moods. If I have a extra hour to try and put some thing together, as it tends to take me awhile (which you know) and if not I just go for a saved one.

Have a wonderful Monday..love ya :hug:



Oh Kelly, don't I know that!! You have an extensive closet and I usually decide to take a yo nap or play with all of your interactives like 100 times when I see you in your closet! :haha: :D

Hi Julie :hug:

I was away for years and missed a lot of the old themes, I find it so interesting to read everyone's reply and I'm so impressed with all you guys' knowledge about the different themes. It's so awesome! :heart:

I've missed so many themes! The Elven Kingdom sounds very intriguing!

Or the Realm of Shadows!

I wish there was a way to click on a toon and could get to their most favorite place and take a tour! Or maybe there is and I have no clue! LOL ( that's most likely the case) lol

Hey Cali, good to see you again here! :hug:

1) I like pretty much anything fantasy, either dark or happy and floofy lol. :angel:

2) I either go back to saved outfits (and tweak em a little her and there) or create something completely new and evolved (i hope lol) but always save them. It's becoming like an addiction really lmao and i've spent waaay to many coins on outfit slots as it is. :silly:

How about yourself girl? :smug:

Hi Cali

Depending on the kinda themes you like these Gem Event themes might be worth a look too..
Haunted Dollhouse EOT2020
Krampus EDE2020


Only way from forums is for them to post a link to that home or room or maybe their siggy already has the link in
If that makes sense.? If not then I do apologise as it's way past my bed time :silly: :sleepy:

Hi Ashen :heart:

I'm not a great decorator so I'm always in awe when I see people's creations!

As far as outfits go , I normally stick with two or three solid colors. and work around them! I tend to find one or two items from various themes and add them to my fit. So I mix and match! But solid colors are more of my style as you've probably figured by now!! :D :D :D

Hello Undecided, :hug:

I do have a couple of items from Krampus theme that I do use regularly.
Also, I figured the same thing, that unless a link provided, there isn't any other way to visit places! I just wished we could get to see different houses with their fantastic themes more easily! :) :thumbsup:

Hi Cali

Have you ventured to "Yo Creators Corner" Forum ?
There are plenty of rooms to view in there, some have links but not all

I will screenshot my rooms and make a thread but it might be later today or tomorrow due to working and real life.
I don't usually put links under them but will do this time

Favorite themes: Irish Cottage, Kellermans, Haunted Swamp and Green Haven. I also enjoyed Asylum 2015 and Spellbound.
Favorite saved outfits: I love the ones dressed for each season, but I also like creating a new one or 2 for each new theme. Favorites would be "going to school" , New Years Eve (have 3 different ones) and "Pajama Party".

Oh, I have not been to that specific corner, I'm glad you mentioned it! I'm sure it's a fun section to explore! :thumbsup:

I get that not everyone would be willing to link their houses here, very understandable!
You're awesome, thank you very much gurl! :heart: :hug:
