Yes, the new hairstyles are cute. Thanks for making a few free! Love some of the additional skintones, and glad we got some darker ones, but yes, seems like a few are pretty close to the same thing. Would have liked some more hair colors too (still waiting on fluorescent pink, and have to agree with the other person that posted in the bugs that we need black back...or at least to be back in black...). Still would love some eyes with glasses and ears with earrings. Overall, thanks...glad to see so much work being done on vanity. Looking forward to all the additional wardrobe surprises, I'm sure you have in store too...
Tibbi, bored no more, Lila: we've tried to make as many of the new hairstyles work with hats as possible. Unfortunately there will always be some combinations that won't work.
On the other hand - why would you want to hide your cool new hairdo with a hat anyway? The more basic styles work with all hats and let you show off the accessories in their full glory. I realize that there's an attachment factor involved but... just a thought! ;)
I'm rather disappointed that all the new skin colors are so dark. My glitch's features just don't stand out against dark colors. And, as Uniquely Prime pointed out, some of them are awfully close to previous colors. Why can't we get more light "non-weird" colors? Something closer to white and some more light beige colors would be nice. Oh well, I shouldn't complain too much :-)
Thanks, sugarQB. I like to match skin and hair to the clothes, and sometimes I'd rather have a "blank canvas", which is where my desire for white comes in. Black is also good for a neutral background, but like I said, many of the facial features just don't stand out very well against dark colors.
Thank you! Many of the new hairstyles are so pretty. But I agree that the new skin colors are too dark, too drab, too similar and not very attractive.We already have a thousand ways to look strange and non-human. I wish we had more ways to look like pretty people.
Originally there were free skin colors in all the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, beige and gray). Many requests were made for there to be free colors that were darker-toned. Although I'm perfectly happy with my Macha Green, I appreciate TS's response to those other requests.
BogBlossum, I believe part of the requests for darker skin colors was to get a broader representation of human skin colors available too. I see multiple skin colors that are marked new and do not qualify as non-human in any way. Also, keep in mind that to some people, the non-human color options (for lack of a better term) are the best way to look pretty.
Magic Monkey, most of the darker skin colors seem to be deep greys, greens and blues, not human at all. Pretty means pretty (a : pleasing by delicacy or grace; b : having conventionally accepted elements of beauty). I understand that pretty is not for everyone but neither is quirky, funky, scary, grungy or whatever. Keep in mind that those of us who want to look pretty (in the commonly understood, dictionary sense of the word) would like to have choices too.
There's plenty of ways to be pretty without hating on the new colors.
I think (I don't know - I tend to classify my skin color as reflectively pale - but in my understanding) that some people would identify with "darker skin" to a certain degree that even if they wish to create a character that is blue or green, they would want a darker type of blue or green.
