I guess that was sorta how it went down with my infatuation with the Thief doll mouth... I was obsessed with the stupid overpriced thing until I found the smirk in Dappy Dandy, an item that I'd previously not cared a bit about. It's not exactly the same, but it doesn't run into the masquerade nose and it gives your avatar a cheeky expression so it's good enough for me.

I actually really dislike both the Wendy eyes and the new Ciel eyes, and I sort of dislike them equally. XD;; They're some of the items that I'll never quite understand the demand for.

I don't typically lust after items I can't afford, but if I can find a good, cheaper replacement for something, I'll go for it.
i've never. i am always having to sell items to get other ones i want. it seems impossible to get '04s that i love or '03s that are untouchables, without giving up items. i mean, who wouldn't want a devil tail, but i guess the wed to darkness is good enough.

i just wish items from '03 or '04 became accessible. i don't see the problem in making them.

I have to say I've been fortunate enough to lust after items that haven't been in such high demand. No need for substituting parts here.
But I can sympathize. going after an sdplus doll can be very very tough--they inflate and deflate inconsistently in my experience. Good luck!

emotion_brofist Agreed, Robolady! Gaia be lacking in the hairy dude and snake department, so it's not really an issue for me.

Cept that damn SDPlus Thief.


Srsly, i think I won it by the skin of my teeth in the MP auction for like...2 something mill. Most expensive ******** I ever bought. And damn did that price fluctuate. Still does.

I also really want the Wendy eyes, but I also want the new Ciel eyes... I just want everything... so there are no cheap alternatives for me. I want both the cheap one AND the expensive one. But usually, I don't end up getting either one. Cause I'm too lazy to make money. ;P

I want them both, but its not likely I will ever get the Wendy doll. So the SC:S might be something I blow my quest failure gold on.

Hm.. those eyes are.. meh.

As for buying alternatives to expensive items. I don't really do that.
It's pretty easy for me to gain any gold back that I waste so I just go
with the thing I wanted more.

But yeah, even if you have the funds, it can be hard to part with
the money. I can't imagine wasting a certain amount of gold without
reaching a set minimum for myself first. And I really can't ever see
myself buy something and then have like 1k left.

Maybe eyes that look similar will come out that don't cost an arm and
a leg. But in this day and age I wouldn't hold my breath. xd

I wanted the closed eyes from Compass of Seidh, but found Lumiere Noire and since I often had a skin on, I liked it because it gave me the closed eyes and white skin c:

Usually I just end up buying the item I want when I want it, regardless of the price, which is kinda bad now that I think about it...

And I didn't even know what the Wendy eyes looked like...and I want them now, curses. scream


And that's why you should change your name to "Deep Pockets"

I know a lot of folks were really happy when the heavenly drapes came out, because it gave a kind-of different option to the way an angelic sash layers.


Ditto.

I have given up on all but one of my over a mil quests.

Because, god damn. I haz no moneys.

Nope. If I want an item, I want that specific item and no other item will do. I wish I could be distracted by cheaper items. It'd make things a lot easier for me.

I'm rarely in that quandary as questing isn't too bad for me. Generally when replacements come out, they just don't appeal to me as the original as the original item was chosen because of something it had that other items didn't. (Leg mod, lips, a certain color on it, etc.)

SDPlus Wendy does look nicer to me than Sainte Ciel: Storge but Sainte Ciel: Storge has 100x more utility with all of its poses and extras.

      Quandary. Delicious words, so good.

      As for me, I too am choosy -- to a ridiculous degree. If it doesn't perfectly align with my specifications, I don't want it. Therefore, knockoffs/near-twins very rarely distract me. Meanwhile, I don't have difficulty making gold for what I want, mostly because I disdain the O3/O4s the majority of users desire.

      I can see a resemblance between Wendy & SC:S, but the latter reminds me more of the Majoko Doll eyes. Which are now hovering at +14m, at least.
