Have you changed from Sleeping Beauty to one of the Ugly Sisters? I like my GW to look like GW, not like a cafe racer.

All the same, it is not bad considering that she is becoming Ugly rather than a Beauty. Most females object to having their fineries removed, without seeing some action.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

I know, I struggled with this idea, but just didn't care for all the weight and the way she handled.
I like the Australian humour, very similar to South African, although mine can be a little crazier at times, so I have to pace myself.
This is my winter project, and who knows, she might get all of her clothes back someday :)
Keep that humour coming bro :)
