It’s almost FFXIV Little Ladies’ Day 2023, and the next seasonal event for the critically acclaimed MMORPG promises to shake up the AFK catgirl meta dramatically, adding an exciting new tool for roleplayers, partygoers, and fans of general revelry everywhere. Whether you’re busy leveling your alt jobs, playing through the story for the first time, or building out your FFXIV Island Sanctuary, you won’t want to miss this event.

Little Ladies’ Day is, as the name suggests, a celebration of all the wonderful women of Eorzea. This year the event is titled ‘A Dance to Remember,’ and it sounds like the Royal Seneschal is planning a grand dance to put smiles on faces and give everyone a good time. That means you’ll want to put on your best glamour and practise those dance moves – and you’re in luck, as there’s a perfect reward to do just that.

Among the rewards for completing the seasonal event is a new emote, the Little Ladies’ Dance. While we don’t get a look at it in action yet, the preview image and icon make it pretty clear that you’ll make use of a decorative fan as part of the dance – something that seems like the perfect addition to the kit of very AFK Miqo’te in Limsa, and all the roleplayers auditioning to be backup dancers for the local troupe. Move over, The Bee’s Knees!

In addition to this, you’ll get an Orchestrion Roll for Decisions, a tune that’s been used for Little Ladies’ Day events in the past, and a wall-mounted piece of artwork showing a young girl studying at a desk by an open window. It’s a really nice piece that gives off those iconic ‘Lo-fi beats to study and relax to’ vibes, and it’ll certainly find a home on the wall in our free company house.
