Its just sad..

Postby Cam (184561840) » Mon Sep 13, 2021 10:09 am

Why do we constantly get old fashioned outfits thrown at us? Isnt this a fall theme? I could think of so many beautiful fall items to give us, but we get this repetitiveness that we always get. A big a** hat and even bigger shoes. Its just sad, compare these items to what we used to get and you will be shocked.

Frr
Like I dont wanna sound sour and complain complain, but its as if feedback isnt heard, or cared. Nothing excites me anynore in this game except DCS, without those I just wouldnt stay.

It always feels whoever is designing these outfits totally hates doing so. No psssion or creativity. Sorry but its true.

I couldn't agree more. Outfits are just not what they used to be and very repetitive. I don't see how these fit in with a "fall" theme at all. While I'm adding, can the female outfits in any theme please start looking like females again? Every theme lately portrays the female with the same "board flat" chests as the men. I don't buy that "it's so hard" as an excuse, we've had better outfits so we all know the programs are there.

Under normal circumstances I'd agree with you, but Anne of Green Gables isn't a modern theme. It's really traditional and I didn't expect a lot from the fashion on this theme for that reason.

While I don't love the women's tops, I think there is a use for the maxi skirts and the sashes are one of the only belt-like items that fit in the right spot on the waist for me. So, there are a couple of takeaways from this release at least.

Is it high fashion or a designer release? No, absolutely not. But, I don't know if this particular theme merits it anyway. :thumbsup:

The holidays are just around the corner and it will likely be designer content heavy for a while, so we are almost to some high quality items. :hug:

Anne of Green Gables is set in the Victorian era (or Edwardian in some of the movie adaptations), so the style seems appropriate to the theme. Unfortunately, the release we got today looks really frumpy, like everything needs a good ironing, and I cannot imagine why they chose to make the boots come up over the pant leg. :?: The style definitely could have been executed better.

:thumbsup:

We were just talking about that in the main thread :haha:
Like i said there, it's like whoever is responsible for it doesn't like what they are doing much also i think they just want to dish out stuff fast without using too many resources and time so they just keep giving us the same stuff over and over. I'm just glad and thankful for you, pierre, kenjeyz and some others who give us amazing designs, because if it wasn't for you all i think dressing up would really get boring for some and it would make many more leave. I'm not even going to mention the facial features :phew:

The Theme reflects on the Novel of Anne of Green Gables written in 1908, so the clothes are very well suited to this time period!

"Anne of Green Gables is a 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery (published as L. M. Montgomery). Written for all ages, it has been considered a classic children's novel since the mid-20th century. Set in the late 19th century, the novel recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl, who is mistakenly sent to two middle-aged siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had originally intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in the fictional town of Avonlea in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way through life with the Cuthberts, in school, and within the town." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_of_Green_Gables

I think what most of us are saying is that no matter what theme the clothes don't seem to change. It could be a 2020 theme and we get top hats.

Was this a runway show in 1967? Nope. It was 2013 & 2014 respectively. Fashion never changes - it just recycles. Welcome to Yo. There will be more top hats and tiaras. Hell, they should do a theme called "Top Hats & Tiaras" and it would probably burn the doors off the store. LOL

Nah, I read through the post's and the comments weren't just about Top Hats! This is how people dressed in the early 1900's!

I'm very tired of most of the outfit releases, they are frumpy and not very detailed. I haven't bought yc in a while because nothing has been worth it, to me. :thumbsup:

while i do understand that this is an old fashioned theme, i do not understand the actual art or design direction.

I haven't understood the art direction in this game for a while now. I do not care for it.

I am sure a brilliant designer could design "old fashioned" more elegantly than these frumpy designs.

Great observation. I look at this hat and see "give up" or "rushed". It has like 6 gradients around the stovetop, making it appear blocky like a 16 bit video game. The band has 3 gradients resulting in the same issue. Instead of being seamlessly ombre from front to back, it is what it is. And why the hat's colors don't even match the outfit.......I'll never be able to explain. I normally cast my votes by not buying things, but this one was outrageous enough to be worthy of some criticism.

I do understand the need for speed when creating items. But if they are going to put out stuff that won't sell, why even do it at all? I'd rather get one killer male design a month that I simply MUST HAVE, than 4 of them that are forgettable or worse, repulsive.

It's not that I don't want stuff. I do. I just won't ever want that. It definitely is what it is. :)
