Delusions of Grandeur is a limited time quest available from January 26 - 31, 2012 during Marie Antoinette Week. It is given by the characters Bella Goth and Madame Pomposim.
This quest was difficult to finish, because of several things: 1) it is hard to get 6 different dirty things in your house and find 3 dirty things in friend's homes because they are all cleaning for the quest, 2) The "Bow" / "Curtsey" social action does not come up very often when talking to neighbors, and 3) You need a lot of neighbors, as well as several active neighbors to help you out.
Completing this quest will award you the doll
