I agree with much of what has been said in this thread. I am very disappointed. I actually love Anne of Green Gables so at first I was excited for this theme, but that quickly faded when the releases came out. This could have been done so much better. Almost all of the themes lately that aren't player designed, are so....clunky for lack of a better word. And all the face cases are really unbecoming, way too big and hairy eyebrows, and they all almost look exactly the same. None of this is stuff I want to be. I will say it does make the gem challenge truly a CHALLENGE to know what to do to make it look good.

Good feedback. The highlighted portion has always interested me. In the universe of possible eyebrows, there are ones that will look terrible, ones that are attractive, and everything in between. In the category of ones that are attractive, the shapes and designs are very similar. I'm starting to see so many that look the same all the time. The only way for them to branch out of that box is to start venturing into the "everything in between" category. It is inevitable if they want to stay "fresh" and not be "repetitive". It's the same with every item now being made. They all resemble something we've had before. The trick is to make it so cool looking that we forget we already something like it. Welcome to Yo 2021.

People keep saying that its hard not to release the same items but the reality is that the players , who aren't getting paid weekly salaries, are creating amazing items that we all have to have..

I was looking forward to this theme b/c I just love Anne of Green Gables but the outfits are uninspired. If we didn't have the DC and some amazing artists among our players, the game would be more and more disappointing. I do purchase the theme items especially the hats but these days, many of them just don't sit right on the head. The colours are also disappointing. They mishmash instead of using the same tones.

I call them "caramel outfits". But I don't think that name sounds as ridiculous in English as it does in my native language.

Yeah that is a very good point. I guess I mean the whole entire facecases look the same to me lately (eyes, mouth, eyebrows, etc.) I mean I guess there is some variation, but very little imo. It all looks similar.

The biggest variation I have found, is the placement on the face! Some to the left, some to the right - higher and lower. All just enough that they can't be mixed and matched. Very irritating.

I shake my head at all the people who just dress up their avatars in whatever they want ....

I have just voted and I got so many people dressed to go to a nightclub or down the beach or other places .... this is Anne of Green Gables ... its set in the early 1900s ... and nope they didnt have the clothes of today ... they usually had one good dress & one work dress ... the women wore long skirts ... and usually very proper boots ... there was no jewellery ... no makeup ... and no fancy outfits ... no bright colours it was greys, browns & subdued colours...

cant everyone that does the challenge follow the rules set down for the theme we are dressing for .... I didnt use the outfits on offer in the theme ... but searched my wardrobe for outfits that went together to follow the rules set out for the challenge ... its not hard if you use your imagination and the things you have at hand (if you dont like the outfits offered) it also means you are different than the same oufits in the shops on offer .... I enjoy finding something that goes with the theme but isnt the same as everyone else ...

That's how I feel I did use the blue outfit and added a few things to it. I loved the room challenge that was a blank room .OMG so many beautiful rooms when people got into it and used their imaginations. I honestly wished they do it again. :thumbsup:

When it comes to clothes just a little detail can change something in a big way. That's one of the problems now, nothing has details anymore. Everything looks old and frumpy, because everything is made 2 sizes to big and nothing has detail. Look at the DC stuff , nothing looks the same and so many details. Idc if it's Ann of green gables or any other old style theme, we don't have to look so frumpy and outdated. For some they ok with this stuff, but for the rest of us we are bored with it.

This. It’s a book theme first and then a fall theme. The clothing matches the main theme.
