    @Victorian, can I ask what Covet has to do with changing your doll’s skin tone to fit a theme? Genuinely asking because I really don’t understand.

    @uglyjackie ok so I am going to enlighten you about the past tea: I was a covet player before kkh and after drooping covet, corona happened and I started playing kkh. In covet, you are encouraged to change your doll's skin tone and ethnicity according to challenge. There have been so much drama in the past because of players in classic mode submitting white dolls during black themes like aretha Franklin impersonation etc. In classic mode you can change your skin all you want but covet's modern mode doesn't let you change your doll's ethnicity or body shape, you are assigned a specific doll out of god knows how much dolls and you have to work with it. I played covet in modern mode because I liked the diversity, same appearance all the time bores me but even if I played in classic mode, we would change skin tones and hair colors often. When I started kkh my years of playing covet habits kicked in and I never tried to limit my doll with one single ethnicity. She was white, sometimes asian, sometimes black. Char is trying to joke about that I guess but honestly, I don't have to justify my playing habits to a stranger online. I will continue to do what I always do. If you check the other thread, I explained this to booski before because she sounded geniunely curious.

    Edited because it came off too agressive which is not my thing 💕

    Didnt know you needed to change dolls skin tone in order to style them that's news to me. 😶😬 I assumed it was just your skill on styling 🤷🏽‍♀️

    As a former covet player myself, I agree!  I enjoyed being able to use different styles of hair that wouldn’t normally suit my white doll. Modern mode was a blessing because it made it a level playing field for all voting. I remember before modern mode black dolls would be rare in the Top Scores even by level. I wish it was acceptable to change my dolls skintone in SYS, because some items/hair/dyed items look better on different skin tones. I’ve read the debates in threads and I’m not sure I understand why it isn’t considered okay. I’ve always had a diverse friend group growing up in LA and can’t imagine any of them saying it would be a bad thing to do. I don’t want to offend so I just keep my doll white or lightly tanned for summer-y themes. Maybe one day SYS will do a Modern Mode and lock skin color but idk.

    @therealChar I guess you didn’t even read what she was saying but she pointed out that she was playing modern mode where she was assigned a random doll, if it happened to be black there wasn’t a way for her to change it, she just styled the doll she was given. Essentially isn’t it the same thing as a designer designing an outfit that she envisions a black girl to model on runway so she sketches it out on a black girl. It’s not like anyone is making themselves black it’s just creating a look/drawing. Maybe white animators should also be forbidden to create black characters?

    They're not saying that white creators are forbidden from creating black characters just that they've never heard of that 'method'

    I’m a petty b*tch but I won’t vote for diamond items in the voting booth. if they don’t score well hopefully no one will buy them and glu will stop making everything cost diamonds 
    I am going to include diamond kollections on that list. Like, it's your money, buy them and hype them all you want but at this point I am just going to deliberately downvote every single diamond kloset and kollection items, even though I have 3 diamond kollection items in my closet. If it's going to worth it in the long run i don't see anything wrong with punishing players instead of glu 🤷‍♀️
    please, this is so bitter. like therealChar said, it's clear glu isn't letting up with the diamond items and you don't know if a doll spent their hard-earned diamonds on a kollection or not. ~punishing dolls does nothing. if someone thinks an item is cute enough to spend their currency on, they're gonna do it, regardless if one or two people don't vote for them in the voting booth because they had the audacity to buy diamond items lol 
    Ok, so? Not my problem anymore, I said what I said 🤷‍♀️ I am not going to act fair, I will %100 act petty 
    Same way I wont vote for dolls who use the opportunity to make their dolls black for certain sys. I look forward to down voting some of them for the disco one. :)
    Please don’t do this lol, I actually enjoy seeing more black dolls in the VB, but also seeing them be the popular pick cause it’s not something I see a lot.

    Thanks @SDC93 @sandraliis and @chocolatedrop98 <3 I think it's pointless to explain to someone that isn't willing to listen. Especially when they don't even search up what  Covet modern mode is about to see what I mean and pull the discussion to a whole other direction. Plus it's not even something I do during the sys anymore, it was just an attempt to get back at me for stating my choice of voting so hope koko deletes this bull before it drags on more lol

    For everyone saying that we should have diamond offers: this could really work for some of you but not everyone, I’ve played this game for 4 years now and I’ve only had one good offer for 15 kstars, the rest of them are surveys for 1 kstar that you are probably not getting cause you dont fit the profile they are looking for. That being said, if we get diamond offers a lot of players will still have no extra way of getting them
    I said this moreso as a joke to the fact glu won’t implement ways to earn diamonds. i’m sure if it happened it would be a $20 minimum for like 50 diamonds which still wouldn’t be good or a viable way to earn diamonds to keep up with all the diamond items.

    I'm just gonna say that this is a genuine question and not a shade or something like this: we know and talked about it the other day, that certain types of hairstyles, used on white people, are cultural appropriation and I support that. In this case, if I find it very beautiful and I want to use it, is it wrong for me to change my doll's skin tone to black and finally be able to use it on her?

    yu had the right idea babes ✋🏾 jus because yu think that if yu make your doll black it’s finally ok to us the hairstyles it’s not 🛌 it is offensive. POC finally have representation in the game and now all the white dolls want to change their dolls to black. all due respect it’s not for you and never will be for you.

    Like I said, it was a real question and I really want to learn more about this. I myself never did it out of respect, in the game or real life even tho I love it, but never heard for someone what they really felt about it

Because I think this is kinda the point for some people to want to change their dolls and be able to style them in a way that they think is most pretty.
    I’m curious too! I grew up playing with barbies and bratz of different races, and I see my doll as something similar to a Barbie and/or Bratz. My doll doesn’t even have a proper name nor does she look like me (currently using blonde hair and blue eyes) I’m pale asf in real life and mestiza (Filipino & Spanish). I haven’t really change her skin tone much (aside from being the pales tan in tropical themes) since Idk if it’ll be okay since other dolls voiced that it’s not okay. I honestly play this game for styling, since I like giving friends makeovers and stuff. I also really want to branch out to trying out styling different races (not to fit a certain theme) but to play around with features and hair for diversity.
