I hate it when I fall in love with an item and then it sits in my inventory unused because it can't match with anything I have.

Guh.

That's why I just put it on my wishlist and visit the marketplace to try it on a few times, and then hope that I grow out of wanting it ever again.

Le Carousel. gonk THAT BLUE....

I actually had an avatar that in which I used two Le Carousels, I matched it with the shirt from Sunset Harvest. The problem is that it comes with a horrible orange time, but I eventually covered it up. stressed
I also used the blue Stiletto boots.

Yeah Sunset Harvest was the closest thing I could find to that shade of blue and in the end I wasn't satisfied with the results. scream SO CLOSE BUT THAT ORANGE. Perhaps I'll try again with those boots you mentioned.

I covered it up with Equestrianism Fashion, but you could try with a high-reaching corset and then maybe put on a Serafuku tie or something. smile

        I usually don't bother with matching the exact shade, in fact I find it almost annoying if I do. I like to think of it as using a color pallet so I can be more liberal with the shades. As long as the colors look good together I'm happy.
        However Dante's Divine Verdict rots away in my inventory because of the purple in several poses.

This, this is why Tektek exists cat_stressed
hurrhurr Tektek hates brown people. Very few of the items involving face mods like eyes n' scruff rarely work
emo So when I do put avatars together on there, I generally leave some of the stuff off because it just looks so damn weird. Mildly irritating, but I'll survive. [or I do a lighter skin tone and am mildly off put because it's not mah avatar]

But I do the same thing if I get a random compulsion to slightly match with doin an avi and checkin the layerin on Gaia. Most of the time it involves a theme or a scene/emotion I had in mind.

See, unlike the OP, you're at a much more advanced stage in the avi development process, because you know the main hindrance you're faced with: Items are not always non-white friendly cat_xp
My advice would be the second step I mentioned to the OP, which is going to the AT (and the Dressing Room) for solutions to any problems you encounter... But... Alas, I do think you'll still end up getting the short end of the stick cat_sweatdrop

Honestly, with how long the basic skin tones have been around (like since the beginning), you'd think Gaia items would be, well, useable regardless of skin tone (then again, we don't have a non-white vampire skin either too... cat_stare )?

This blue? emotion_dowant

It took me a while to bring it all together. I have the hardest time matching some of the Seracilla Pendant items with others.

eek YOUR AVATAR. I WANT.

And while we're on the topic, what is that criss cross-y mask thing you're wearing? emotion_kirakira It's lovely~



Oh thanks!

It's the Libra Justice Blindfold from Zodiacal ;D

My buny slippers... There are like 3 items on all f Gaia that match it exactly in color and they all suck.

Do I let this detour me? NO! emotion_dowant emotion_donotwant

The bow from the Luck o' the Garnish is absolutely impossible to match up to another item in colour.
When that tends to happen, I just find colours of the same sort of area on the colour circle to compliment it. Such as bright green would be nice with a bight yellow and bright navy blue.
Also, since that bow is so massive, it's hard to get other colors in with it! xD

): I can't seem to to match anything with the gothic passion coat. Which is sad because it's a lovely shade and nicely well made... but we lack items that is that color of purple. ._.

Not true. Custom cut matches with almost every single avatar I make and a lot of times I can't make an avatar w/o my custom cut. heart

Thus why I stick to things that work. Or else I end up buying multiples of an item that doesn't match so it can match itself.

Which leads to hoarding. Which I am trying to prevent myself from doing. emotion_donotwant
