I can totally relate to this. When I also edit townies I try to stay faithful to their original design and just change something minor in their appearance.
But yes.. there are cases when the changes need to more drastic. I did that as well, with Cassandra Goth (made her somewhat resemble her mother and darkened her skintone), the Charm family, Simeon (shortened his hair, got rid of his beer gut and made him a hunk) and L. Faba in my story. BUT, your L. Faba makeover is leagues higher than mine. She looks absolutely HOT.
