This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is for emmyjulia. It's a default replacement for afbodydressgothic, using Amaryll's Yesterday dress and a recolor of it that I made. Amaryll's mesh is included in the rar file as a separate package. A non-default version of my recolor is included in a separate rar, but the mesh is not included in that rar. Resources are compressed.

Tangsims used Amaryll's dress as part of a default for afbodydressgothic, but the only remaining trace of it appears to be the index picture at the Default Database, which only shows one outfit, but isn't tagged as a partial default. So, the replacement for afbodydressgothic_deadlyblack uses Amaryll's original dress, and is a recreation of the default tangsims made. To replace afbodydressgothic_bloodyred, I recolored the dress, and used the shoe textures from Amaryll's Charlette dress. The shoes themselves use the textures of the AF "uberfamily" heels from FreeTime, but have higher heels.

While afbodydressgothic is categorized as Everyday only, these outfits are categorized as Everyday and Formal. They will be available to both adult and young adult females. The replacements are in separate packages, so you can use either or both, as you choose. You can use the replacement packages with another default for afbodydressgothic, as long as they load after it. Note that Amaryll's Yesterday dress uses two mesh groups instead of the single group the Maxis outfit uses. If you have a catgory mod or hider that includes afbodydressgothic, make sure that these replacement packages load after it. You should not have a problem if it is installed in either the \TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins or \TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins folder of your latest expansion pack.

Since afbodydressgothic is probably best known as Cassandra Goth's dress, who better to show it in-game? On the left is the replacement for her original black dress; or the right is the replacement for the "bloodyred" version of afbodydressgothic. Pics were taken as she stands at start-of-play on the Goth family lot, with some objects and Sims moved out of the way.
