Hm, even though I like the Simmerings getting the new one just cause I like the hair colour in it is a waste.
The other stuff isn't really appealing.
That black and white Dark Heart recolour looks awful :/
The background is what bugs me, sometimes the colors we like get implemented in an item but in a really bad way. I am content with that cute hat tho.
It has the same problem many items suffer from where formally dark parts are switched to white. The shading looks just awful. The background looks kinda blurry, but otherwise not that bad. Especially the cauldron and the book look like crap and the book is one of my fav poses in the original item :/
Or the inverse like they did with Lethe Rose, I do wonder if they actually take time on coloring these or just mess with the Hue/ Saturation bars. One thing I'm glad is they didn't put the recolor choices of past rei. Like Cafe Clementine and Keiko's Triffle.
I don't get why they had to inverse the light&dark parts on some of the poses, if the result ends up looking so awful ._. They could've made the gold accents and creme parts of the original silver and kept the other parts' integrity just in a monochrome coloursheme.
