This year certainly had more that I bought and kept than some years. My favorites where the Sprite in January (I still have the other two from when they came out), Juno's Lace (so lovely though I am normally not that dressy), and the Pierrot (adorable). I love the hair from most all of the MCs. Until you posted the pics I didn't realize how many of the MCs from this year I had. They were rather exquisite this year, and very beautifully detailed.

My favorite collectibles from this year are Juno's Lace, Antique Pierrot, Empress Cotton, Prima Poppet, Devoted Spica, Literary Luxury, and Princesse Honore. I even have three of them, which are Juno's Lace, Prima Poppet, and Princesse Honore~! biggrin
I really liked this year ' s MCs , it ' s like, each month getting by, they got more detailed , more interesting . Though we might have had a tad too much of over-the-top-fantasy-oriented , except for the Literature -something and Beard Science in my opinion. We have also had lots of cream and gold . I would enjoy more eye-burning colors ,sci-fi themes next year , or on the contrary , some darker and less present shades in Gaia ' s colors ...like forest green , camel , purple ...And also, while looking back , I think that we have had a lot of curly /long , precious -looking hair .I would enjoy some wilder or more punkish poses next year .
But all in all,I feel like it was an excellent year .
The MC's this year were all absolutely lovely. It's good to see newer items, MC's especially, become so popular and pricey. It makes complaining about the "new changes" less compelling when price of older MC's are used as justification.
I think these are probably the better MCs since 04 in terms of consistent (good) quality. I mean, while there are some items that are not my style, many of this years items are rather lovely. I am impressed, truly.
I'd say this year's MCs definitely reflected the current trends in avatars. I see lots of cream and fancy frills. However I also see that they are trying to include male avatars which is great. I actually bought 4 different MCs this year which I haven't done in a long time. I really hope they keep it up.
I am sooooo happy with this year as a whole
When it comes to Mcs.
But, that's because I'm a girl.
But if I was a boy, I would be kind of mad.
I just feel like alot of the male items weren't as nice as the female items.
Honestly, it seemed like they wanted the female items to stand out more.
So yeah basically all the female items to me were incredible.
The male, eh, not so much.
Leg mods are nice, but we're kind of ******** inundated with them at this point. We had a grand total of ONE MC that was actual pants and not a leg mod in any way. Just one. The issue I have with leg mods is twofold. 1) They often look awful on the male base by shrinking down the legs and feet to ludicrous sizes that make us look like we'll fall over and 2) they take away mixing and matching from the waist down... when mixing and matching is the entire point of an avatar dress up forum site.
I wish so badly we could have some more pants in MCs that aren't leg mods. Those of us with male avatars have it bad enough already if we don't like pastel stockings and high-heeled shoes. Please don't restrict us further.
