Lilycott diaries- WiFi party, updates and Halloween!

Hello everyone! You might not remember me, since… well… it’s been about 6 months!!! And I honestly am extremely frustrated at my lack of focus, determination and enthusiasm. I have no excuse, really, I’ve even been playing Animal Crossing because I love it, but the posting part was a bit… absent.

Hope all of you have had a good 6 months and feel well about starting a new year! Even though nothing has really changed for me. Anyways, I should quit rambling already and show you what I’ve been doing! I hope you all enjoy!

Let’s start out with a couple fun times I had on a WiFi meeting with Amy, Choco and TeruAll their blogs are worth checking out!! And I’m so thankful for the friendship I have with them, it was so nice catching up with them! Actually, by now we should probably meet again, it’s been so long!! 😦

I think it was reeeeeally early for Amy, so we had a morning cup of coffee. Aren’t those mosaic paths so pretty? I’ve always been a fan of how Amy decorates Citàlune.

HNI_0086 HNI_0087

Oh, don’t mind us, just having a cup of tea!

HNI_0091

I love this picture of the four of us! We all have our eyes closed and Amy’s balloon matches her dress and all the green!

HNI_0095

As you can see, we have a bunch of incredible abilities, such as playing instruments and singing! 😆

HNI_0097

I felt like an absolute goddess in this chair!

HNI_0099

And I believe this was in Teru’s town, Arcadia, she had this simple but incredibly cool room, I’m a sucker for fun stuff like this! 😀

HNI_0001

Arcadia has this naturally beautiful vibe to it, all the flowers, the red and the way it’s organized just make you gasp! So pretty!! 😀

HNI_0002HNI_0004Choco went straight to the fun! She showed me how to do the net trick to get into the river!! 😀

HNI_0006

Another great group picture of us! This time in Choco’s town, Delltune!

HNI_0007

HNI_0008

Such a new town and it already was full of beautiful places, I hope Delltune is doing well, Choco!

HNI_0009 HNI_0010

And our last stop was my town, Lilycott! I was very sorry that I didn’t have much time to show them around and the only pictures I took were these two >.<  I had a wonderful time with all of you and hope to be able to meet you all again!! Lilycott looks quite different now, and will always welcome my Animal Crossing buddies!

Say what? Oh, you’re curious to see just how Lilycott has been evolving? Keep scrolling!

HNI_0009

My little red carnation garden! 🙂 It actually looks a lot better in winter >.<

HNI_0011 HNI_0014

Just a couple pictures:)

HNI_0083

What are you doing here?!?

HNI_0017

Serving coffee! This is actually my life long dream hahaha, I can’t wait to go to college and be a waitress somewhere in the US to pay for rent, although it might sound dumb 😛

HNI_0020

I remember Teru and I had a small talk about trains in Animal Crossing, she mentioned that she’s a tiiiiny bit faster than the train when she gets a perfect race, ever since I’m always trying to beat it! 😀

HNI_0022

This is an old picture of a second “resident area” in my town, it looks a bit awkward but, currently, it’s actually looking quite nice!

HNI_0024

The closest to a perfect rating I’ve ever got, but Isabelle always says I need more PWPs even though I am over the minimum of ten, is this some glitch?

HNI_0042

I changed the colors of my path a bit to match autumn better:)

HNI_0034

PS: This flower/pattern path actually leads up to houses, but I don’t have any pictures of it yet!

HNI_0046HNI_0060

HALLOWEEN!!

HNI_0048

And clubbing as a zombie! 😆

HNI_0075

Aww, yay!

HNI_0079

Works well enough for me!

And that’s all I’m showing you today, I should post soon with the pictures I took on New Years eve and these January days, couldn’t fit it in this post since it was getting long enough, sorry! I really wish you’re all doing well! Even though Holiday season is pretty much over, hope you had fun! Happy 2015, and I just wanted to say that you can’t choose for things to get better, but you can choose to smile more, I’ll try it as well! So I hope you’ve smiled during this post.

See ya’ later alligators, very soon racoons! 🙂

Lilycott diaries- WiFi fun, rainbow roses and almost perfect town??

Wohooo first day of summer vacations!! FINALLY! I’ll hopefully be able to post a lot more often and work on my town a lot more now! I’m very excited!

Hope everyone who has already started had a wonderful summer and good luck on the new school year. And to those of us on vacation, happy summer!! 😀 Now onto the post…

I decided to call these following updates on my town Lilycott diaries. Since my previous ones were explaining my first month in Lilycott, these next ones could be more entitled to getting a perfect town, the layout of Lilycott… I don’t know, I guess we can try 😛

Oh wait… and ugh my posts get sooooo long, sorry guys!

Wait, wait, sorry one last thing: the almost perfect town is a bit of an exaggeration :mrgreen:

HNI_0086

Let’s start off with the celebration of the town fountain! ^^ My idea is to plant orange and pink tulips all around it, kinda creating a nice sunset-ish garden right at the entrance of town!

HNI_0082

I had to redo a side of my three-space wide path, so it would look symmetrical, and while cutting down trees I came across a special tree stump.

HNI_0088

Swimming in the moonlight 😀

HNI_0090

Graham told me he was going to move for the 2nd time, and the first time I had said he should move because his house was in the way of my path, however the second time he asked I didn’t have the heart to say yes 😦

HNI_0091

Slowly building my forest…

HNI_0093

And placing a bench in next to my fruit tree “forest” next to a cliff. I’ve been working quite a lot on the left side of town, but my right side is almost bald, haha.

HNI_0094

And I believe this was my second silver slingshot flying around town, bu now I have about 5 of them, so if anyone needs them…

HNI_0095

Some progress made on my island, and a purple pansy! Choco was asking me how I got it, in my experience, it just showed up with the blue pansies, however google says red+red make a purple hybrid…?

HNI_0096

Why hello, Gulliver.

HNI_0018

We are to globs in the water, wait… we who?

HNI_0019

Choco came to visit!! Or shall I say Mr. Chocolate, I wish I could grow such a mustache!

HNI_0020

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

I showed her around my treasure island and we moved onto swimming and getting stung by so many jellyfish. 

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026 HNI_0027 HNI_0028

Our attempts at jumping off at the same time :mrgreen:

HNI_0029

Choco has recently started her newest town, Delltune, and she told me how much she misses peaches as native fruit, so I let her take a couple ones!! (she really helps me out later, too!)

HNI_0030

HNI_0031 HNI_0033

She was not kidding when she said she was going to do some shopping, she whipped clean the stores!! 😀

HNI_0036

She even bought some fortune cookies, for us to eat!

HNI_0037

HNI_0038 HNI_0040

We then decided I should visit her town, which has a beautiful town flag! o.o and I forgot to take pictures of it, but the entrance was decorated beautifully with chocolate-themed patterns ^^.

HNI_0041

Coincidentally matching umbrellas!

HNI_0042

And jumping off cliffs! I love seeing how beaches are shaped in so many towns, my town only has a tiny little cliff that you can actually jump off to the water from, so I love making the most of my swimming sessions in other towns 😛

HNI_0043

Another shark!! I’m starting to believe sharks are much more common when WiFing, is that possible?

HNI_0044

Again, we are to globs under water ^.^

HNI_0045 HNI_0048

Hahah, I laughed so much here, we “discovered” than when wearing a wetsuit and pressing A while facing each other, it looks like you’re hugging!!

HNI_0049

Choco showed me some beautiful artwork she had made, it actually explains a story, can you guess what it says? Tiny disclaimer: it is a sad story 😦

HNI_0051

It took me a while to realize what Choco was doing at this time, she later told me she was building a maze! At first I was filling up all the holes >.<

HNI_0055

Awee, Kapp’n, traveling with you is always a pleasure.

HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0069

We mostly played mini games on the island, they are soooo much more fun with a companion!!

HNI_0071 HNI_0072

Heheh, I won that one, Choco!

HNI_0073 HNI_0074

Can you just see our faces of joy? We couldn’t stop winning! We are the BEST PLAYERS EVAAAAA

HNI_0075

… remember what I said about being the best players?

HNI_0076

But we couldn’t accept a loss, so we decided to play memory again! However Choco’s internet got cut off, and I literally was in that same position for like a minute, the hole time I was saying stuff like “uh, Choco?” “HELP!” “I think I’m stuck”

HNI_0077

After that tiny incident, she came back to visit Lilycott, to see K.K perform at my Club!

HNI_0078

While waiting until 8pm we played some hide and seek.

HNI_0079

And I discovered that my museum actually sells silver tools! Woot!

HNI_0080 HNI_0081 HNI_0082

Do you think she sees me?

HNI_0083

Spoiling my town tree… :3

HNI_0084 HNI_0085 HNI_0086 HNI_0087 HNI_0088

And clubbing like we were born for it! 😛

Thanks for visiting, Choco, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0089

Yay! My first mushroom!

HNI_0097

Celebrating the town’s new bench and…

HNI_0099

GAH swimming with sharks!

HNI_0100

And this shall be the placement of the new fence I’ll put up!

HNI_0005

Oh my goooood!! I seriously freaked out when I read this, do you understand what this means? Perfect town, here I come!!! (It’s not perfect, but I can’t believe I’m so close to it!)

HNI_0006 HNI_0008 HNI_0009

Just playing a humble game of hide-and-seek ^^

HNI_0010 HNI_0011

And some more online meetings! I got to visit the lovely Delltune again, here’s the entrace I was talking about! (It’s kinda like chocolate, isn’t it?)

HNI_0012

Teru was also there, and she gave us both lots of hybrid roses, beautiful!

HNI_0014

I had brought over some fossils and gems to help Choco with her collection, but I felt bad that I didn’t have anything for Teru!

HNI_0015

Another shark!

HNI_0016

And another game of hide-and-seek, can you believe we’re all behind a house right now? It was Teru’s genius hiding place!

HNI_0018 HNI_0019

We then made time to visit my town, Lilycott.

HNI_0020

And they both benefited from having Joan there, since my town is a day later than real time (yes, I time traveled… but only 24h!)

HNI_0021 HNI_0022

They both very kindly helped out with the donations of the fence, I kinda felt bad, thanks so much, guys!!

HNI_0023

Heheh, we were waiting to see if Amy would show up, and a friend went online so I got my hopes up! 😛

HNI_0024 HNI_0025 HNI_0026

Playing around my stump!

HNI_0027

And Teru realized it was in an inconvenient place, so since she has a silver axe, she cut a new one in a better place, thank you!!

HNI_0028

Ahahah, in this picture it looks like we’re waiting in line to buy turnips, I hope you’re happy with your customers, Joan!

HNI_0029

Before Teru left, I asked if I could show her one of my favorite spots in town, the treasure island/secret garden, you have to swim to be able to get there, (see my map here), so I lend her my wetsuit and told her where to go 😛

She told me about a pansy that looked like it was glitched, I never had realized that! It’s like the cliff eats off a part of it! Heheh.

HNI_0030 HNI_0031

She then had to leave, good bye Teru, thanks for coming!

HNI_0032

And when I came back… HOLY GUACAMOLE! Choco said she had spend over 600K on turnips!!

HNI_0033 HNI_0034

What she said.

HNI_0035

Remembering old memories, aaah, good times!

HNI_0036 HNI_0037

Racing and… you guessed it, getting stung by jellyfish!

Choco then also had to leave, I had a wonderful time!

*

HNI_0038

Yay!! Look how pretty they look!! 😀

HNI_0039

And sporting my new fav hat! ^^

HNI_0040

Hahah, I probably would’ve bought this in my Wild World town, but not here, I’m the mayor; people expect me to be wise! 😛

HNI_0041

HNI_0043 HNI_0044

Wooho!

HNI_0045

o.o what’s this? A BALD SPOT IN TOWN?

HNI_0047

And thanks to the tip I heard Teru mention in her last post, I caught my first bee! (second try). I remember how much I struggled to catch one of these in Wild World, in New Leaf it was actually a lot easier!

HNI_0050 HNI_0051

Awee, how could I not give my favorite cereal (get it? ’cause of Golden Grahams, and his name is Graham… hahah, oh) a perfect peach?

HNI_0054 HNI_0055

HNI_0061

Hey look, Kapp’n looks asleep!!

HNI_0062

Woo! Villagers have started to recognize the Beautiful Town ordinance in Lilycott!

HNI_0063

SO EXCITING!

HNI_0064 HNI_0066 HNI_0067 HNI_0068

Sorry, I had to, I was crying of laughter every time my character fell.

HNI_0070 HNI_0071

Yay!! Leif announced that, with the opening of T.I.Y he will be expanding his shop!!

HNI_0072 HNI_0074 HNI_0075 HNI_0076

I attended Roscoe’s birthday party, I love how they announce them on the bulletin board, so I don’t forget 😛

HNI_0078 HNI_0079

This was too cute to not to take a picture of it.

HNI_0080

New PWP requests!

HNI_0082

And celebrating the new fence in Lilycott!

HNI_0084

Graham also recognizing the ordinance (I promise this is almost the end, just a couple more pictures).

HNI_0085

And awww I caught Dizzy watering flowers! Good elephant!!

HNI_0086

Every time I see the train pass by I get excited and try to chase it, this is still pretty new to me!

HNI_0088

I love the afternoon talks I had with Choco every now and then!

HNI_0091

How was I supposed to not take a picture of this?

HNI_0093 HNI_0094

Blah, swallowed some sand.

HNI_0098 HNI_0099

But to cheer myself up a bit I topped everything off with some midnight clubbing (actually 9pm clubbing, tomorrow was a school night :mrgreen: )

EDIT: If Teru, Amy and Choco read this: would you guys like to arrange a WiFi, all four of us? I’m going to be free pretty much all day except on certain days/weeks (like next week, for example, I’ll only have afternoon) but when would you guys be available? I’m sooooo excited to meet you all again, and reunite “the gang” heheh.

Perfection meets chaos -Chapter 2

Sorry for the short chapter, but I kind of wanted to end it there since chapter 3 is kind of different format of the story? Does that make sense? 😛

Perfection meets chaos. Part 2

As the town hall came into sight I started calming down, everything was going to be alright. It was probably just a big misunderstanding…

I grabbed my dress with both of my hands and pulled it upwards, so it wouldn’t touch the ground, and I started running, but I tripped on a rock and fell into a puddle full of mud.

Disgusting, it was truly disgusting, I was covered in mud, wet and now crying of anger. Hasn’t it ever happened to you? You’re so angry, just pissed off and instead of screaming you cry, in silence you let your tears drop off your face to the ground and slowly stay there for a minute or two, dry your tears off, get up and continue on before anyone realizes. Well that’s what I did.

How ironic, when I woke up this morning, I would have imagined myself crying of happiness because my new dress from Dolce & Gabbana had arrived, or my $2,839 purse, not because, nor could I pay these, but because I was covered in mud ruined and humiliated.

NO, wait I wasn’t humiliated, no one knew, and a last thing a lady looses is her dignity or pride. Up we go, Ariadna, keep your chin high.

 

So when I arrived there guess who I saw… yeah my day just couldn’t get any worse.

“Jemma! I thought you were designing at the Able Sisters…”

“Yeah, and I thought we could afford to pay our bills”

 

It was like a steel knife in my chest. You see? Money wasn’t just survival and luxury, it was me. Everything I had ever worked for in life came with this reward, pieces of green bills, that were worth everything, nothing’s free in life. My parents were so proud… All my roommates were too. Who was I now? Who am I still, up to this day? But more on that later… This was how it all started. They say everything will be okay in the end, if it’s not okay, it’s not the end; but this was the end, it was the end of the easy days, and in came the hardest ones: the worst but also the best ones ever.

 

Thanks for reading! I’ll be going on vacation and I’ll be back blogging in 2 weeks or so, hope you understand!! Happy Summer!

How to… Get rich quick! Step by step

Howdy y’all!! 😛 You need some extra money, in Animal Crossing? Don’t worry! I’ll show you a few very easy methods to win some extra bells! You’ll be rich in no time!!

Disclaimer: These methods are simply some ways to gain money, no codes or cheats are needed. Even with these methods, bells are hard to gain in Animal Crossing, patience is key, and you won’t get rich within the first time you use these 😛

First method: Fleas in the market? IMG_4391[1]

You are going to need…

  1. A net and/or a fishing rod
  2. Empty pockets
  3. And the flea market coming up!! Unless you want to time-travel. In Wild World the flea market occurs the 1st Saturday of every month except for January. (1st Saturday of February, March, April…)

What to do…

  1. Start catching bugs and fishes!!
  2. When your pockets are full of catches, head over to your house and empty the main room (the more space there is, the better)
  3. Place all your bugs/fishes in the room until its full capacity.
  4. Time travel or wait until it’s the Flea Market in your town
  5. Wait inside your house until a “customer” (neighbor) comes in
  6. Once they ask you about a fish or bug, negotiate with them the best price! If they’re interested, they could buy the fish or bug for thousands of bells!!

Second method: You’ve got mail!!

You are going to need…

  1. Paper to write letters (purchase at Nook’s store)
  2. 100 bells or some cheap item.

What to do…

  1. Address a letter to a neighbor in your town, doesn’t matter who.IMG_4443[1]
  2. Write one sentence in your game’s language (English, Spanish, French…) If you’re game’s in English you can take for example what I wrote in the image. 🙂
  3. Write up to four sentences in your game’s language (English, Spanish…) make sure they are real words, the longer the letter, usually, the more value the gift you get in return has. *
  4. Adjust to the letter a present (just drag and let go of the object on top of the letter) it can be a fruit, 100 bells…
  5. Go to the town hall and send it!!
  6. Wait for a reply by the neighbor, the reply will include some item: either an object from their house, a piece of foreign fruit (sell it for 500 bells!) or a random clothing piece.
  7. Sell the item to Tom Nook, and hopefully you’ll have gained some bells!!

* Depending on how long the letter is you’ll get different stuff in return. One sentence will get you fruit or a piece of clothing, two lines will get you a piece of furniture and three or four will either get you furniture, wallpaper or carpet 🙂

The key to this method is getting in return something of more value than the present you sent to them, this way you’ll gain bells when you sell it!!

Third method: ‘Sup bro, you broke?

Okay… excuse that really pathetic name 😆

You are going to need…

  1. Nothing!! 😀 This is the easiest method, but also the less efficient

What to do…

  1. Look around your town, bells and items can be hidden around these places:
      1. Town hall recycling bin
      2. Trees: shake them, but watch out for bees! Bags of 100 bells will fall down, fruits and even furniture!
      3. Underground: you’ll need a shovel to dig in certain spots, you can easily find gyroids and fossils, which sell for quite a lot of bells!!
      4. Rocks: with a shovel, hit a rock! Each day one rock in your town contains thousands of bells in it! Just be quick!!

Perfection meets chaos -Chapter 1

Perfection meets chaos. Part 1

It was an early morning, I was woken up by the “singing” (as she calls it) of Jemma’s horrifying bee, Jacob, I think is its name.

I threw the pillow that had fallen down from by bed on top of my ears and tried to fall asleep once again, but it was no use. I looked around, it was deserted, Jemma, Rina and Chris had woken up already and were living their poor lives. You see I was the only one of the house that knew how to dress, makeup, eat and do anything you can imagine with style, the others just did it their own way…

I got up from bed, put on a violet dress with yellow and orange flowers, got my comb and hairspray and started tidying my hair. After that, I walked down, and before having breakfast, went outside to open the mailbox and read the mail, like I had been doing for the past two years.

Always the same routine” I whispered to myself, and grabbed four letters from the mailbox; one was from my mom, so I put it in my pocket to read it while eating breakfast as I always liked to do, a second one was from the H.R.A, usually Rina reads these, so I left it back in the mailbox, the third one was from Nook, the owner of Nookingtoons sending a barbecue to Chris, the same model as that one I hid behind the house fence since Jemma and I had planned to not have to taste his barbecue ever again. And the last one was from the town hall, I was expecting news about how my founds had increased but instead I read this:

 “Due to you having no more money in your bank account, we have cancelled all your credit and debit cards until you invert more money in these.

You owe the bank 29,870 bells for your last spending of money in these shops:

  • Able Sisters
  • Nookingtoons

Sincerely, Pelly, your account manager.”

I couldn’t believe my eyes, I thought it might be a joke from Pelly, but who does that? Besides, Pelly and I are too close for her to joke about these things with me.

I ran inside, grabbed the phone on top of the exotic end table in the main room, called Jemma, who must be helping out right now at the Able Sisters, and waited for an answer, she was the cleverest one of all and I was hoping for some advice.

“Hello? Is that you, Ariadna?”

I didn’t dare to answer, this was so embarrassing.

“Oh, umm… Jemma, Is that you? Oh, I’m so sorry I got confused”

“Okay, I guess. Are you alright?”

“Me? I’m as good as… peppermint! (Dang, what the hell did I just say?) Listen, unlike you, I got a life so I got to get going.”

I kind of regretted saying that, but I was in no mood to fix more mistakes. So I took the next step, going to the town hall.

Running towards the town hall I ran into Rina, tried not to speak to her, and I could tell she didn’t want to speak to me either. But I was too busy to wonder why.

Right as I was about to continue walking my stomach started doing loud noises, I hadn’t eaten breakfast and I was hungry, this forced Rina to start a conversation with me.

“Wow! The greatest, most elegant Ariadna didn’t eat breakfast?”

“Yeah, well I didn’t really have time, but I was planning on going to the Roost”

“So… shouldn’t you be running the other way?” A small accusing laugh escaped from Rina’s mouth.

“… Do you mind? I have stuff to do!”

“You like to laugh at other people but can’t stand it when they’re laughing at you, huh?”

“Shut up!”

I stepped to the right to start walking away again, but Rina also stepped in my way.

“Come on, I like laughing at you, but I still care, what’s wrong?”

“That I saw you outfit and I wanted to vomit”

“Vomit, really? How long did it take you to come up with that one, Ariadna?”

I then stepped to the left and, successfully, walked away.

 

Not the story: Ugh I kind of hate this format, this looked waaay better as a .docx file in my computer 😦 So maybe I’ll be experimenting with fonts and such in this post, don’t be surprised if tomorrow this post looks any different or such! Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy this one!

How to… Catch a Bee: Step by step

Catching a bee can be hard work, not nearly as much as catching a tarantula, or a scorpion, but still, it certainly isn’t the easiest to catch.

To catch a bee, you are going to need:

  1. A net in your pockets
  2. Braveness: really, be brave, they can be a little scary sometimes…
  3. Trees in your town: you better not have cut them off! If you have, just buy a sapling at Nook’s and dig in a hole with a shovel, drop the sapling in it and hope for it to grow! (No water is needed, unlike with flowers)
  4. Empty hands!

What to do:

  1. Start shaking trees, until a beehive falls to the ground.
  2. Run a little bit away from the tree in a circle motion, if possible, until you’re as far away as you seem to be able to (more or less a second away from them catching you if you stop running 😛 )
  3. Open you inventory
  4. Grab the net and as fast as you can (practice makes perfect) close the inventory and start pressing swinging your net!!

4 simple steps, but they aren’t easy at all, still; practice a few times, get stung a few times and before you know it you’ll have a 4.500 bell bee in your pockets!!

Hope this helped! To know a tiny bit more about bees here you have a small technical card with its size, selling information and where or when to catch it 😉

Long time no post! Yup, sorry about that! I started school so I’m really limiting myself to publish much less than before, I want to work harder and do better than last year.  Anyway, I’ve spent some time looking threw Tumblr for AC3DS news and wanted to show you guys some images. None are made by me, they are copied from Tumblr’s AC3DS tag page. So the only thing that I’ll be doing is publishing them here and commenting about them.

Starting off by showing you the Japanese Official Box art, you can see a male character with his secretary deciding what seems to be what ground object to place in their town, and speaking about those, further in the right side of the image you can see the most adorable neighbor (he looks like a fat chipmunk, aww!!) playing in a specimen playground toy, I don’t know what it’s called in English but I’m sure you know what I mean.

To the right we see a female character purchasing some chairs from the furniture store, water around the town with some islands and in the middle, a big tree that seems to represent the town somehow, as we see it here:

Where the character is planting it, and there are neighbors around clapping and cheering. If this image is of exactly what happens in the game (not some manual image that makes the game look further detailed) they have taken planting trees to a hole new level, with the sapling much more realistic.

Right here we see the female character in what seems to be in her office, working I guess. We can also see a portrait of Tortimer hanging over the wall, and also a clock hanging from it. Just in case you don’t know it yet; yes, your character will be the mayor of the town and will have a secretary with you at all times (let’s actually hope not literally at all times).

Being a mayor includes making decisions for your town, like choosing which type of town you could get, I was really surprised with this feature and also excited, which village would you choose?

And in this image we talk a little bit about character fashion, some of these outfits are new, just like tons of stuff in this game. But it’s not really the new stuff that interests me, it’s more the new features added in the game. Like the one where your character is taller, and for that you can buy not only accessories and shirts/dresses but pants or skirts and even shoes!!

This picture simply looks amazing, all the colors, the chairs, the blanket, the picnic basket, the female character drinking coffee on the go…!! This confirms Cherry Blossoms will stay in your town, probably during spring, that is great. But… uh oh! Barely at the top of the image, do you see kind of like a wasted path… maybe animal tracks come with the AC3DS version. I’ve never actually experienced them since I don’t have city folk, but I’ve heard people weren’t very happy with them, a town without grass… yikes! I really hope animal tracks aren’t included in the game.

AC3DS, for what we’ve seen gives us a completely customized town, you can add/remove/customize barely anything in this game, and as shown in this image, even our houses!! The first one looks like a kiddie look, next one on the top right looks like a cabin series house, left bottom seems like a futuristic one and, last but not least, looks like a house with a Japanese look!

And something I was truly happy about was the opening of new stores in town, even Brewster has his own store in this town that’s not in the museum (as shown the the top left image).

That’s all it for now, maybe I’ll add some other AC3DS post since I found these really fun to make, and the US version of the game isn’t coming out until 2013.

Hasta la vista! Stay tuned for more Animal Crossing Wild World and 3DS posts, stories, news… 🙂

Happy August!?!

Hey, hello, hi! Happy Summer xD

So since I will be on vacation all August I decided to do a mega post for everyone!!

So, probably in all August there is only going to be one post, and it’s probably going to be this one, since I am not coming back until the last days of August and I’ll need some rest before I even get back blogging. So this is the only post, and I want to make it long, hopefully interesting, and with some advertisements of blogs you can visit instead of mine.

Ladies and gentleman, please welcome; August’s only post! -.-

Part one: Contest Leak

Remember way back when I talked about a closing my blog for some days, to prepare it for some contest? So I have everything ready but I’m searching for alternatives to closing my blog, any ideas? So, anyway here’s a more detailed explanation of the contest.

I will hide 100 bell icons ( credits to Mayu) all over my blog that when you click on them they lead you to a sign like for example:

The objective is to get as close as my usa Animal Crossing town as possible, this way winning points.

There are signs with 20 miles (like the example), after that one there’s a 15 miles one, a 10 miles one, a 5 and lastly a welcome to usa sign, here are how I calculate the points:

  • Welcome sign= 5 points
  • 5 miles sign= 4 points
  • 10 miles sign= 3 points
  • 15 miles sign= 2 points
  • 20 miles sign= 1 point.

Every time you find a sign you must leave a private comment (just type in private comment anywhere) saying for example:

Private comment

I have found a sign worth __ points: (link image here)

And it’s simple, the user with most points wins! Of course there are prizes! 😀

Part two: a note to all my beloved friends!

I consider everyone that comes to visit my blog a friend, but this note goes especially to everyone who has commented on my blog, who has always been so nice to me… I think you know if you’re a very special friend to me, that’s why I won’t name you guys in this section, because I’d probably name a bunch of people 😛

I feel very, very happy just chatting with you guys, every time you guys leave a comment on my blog I smile, every time we wifi, or simply every time I know for sure all of you are there, supporting me if I do something wrong and always helping me so much! I love every one of you guys, we are the WordPress Animal Crossing Community!!!

Since I will be on vacation, I will not reply to comments or publish new comments on your guys’s blogs, but I promise that when I come back I will! xoxo!!

Part four: Ebatong

Welcome screen with Dotty, hiding behind the tree 😛

Hey there! She’s so cute yet she was alone so much time, I may have to create a second character in Ebatong to keep her company!

Maybe a mosquito could keep her company, haha, don’t worry, little one (I’m talking to my character, not the mosquito 😆 ) you’ll have a new roommate in no time!

What’ya say… catch of the night, stag beetle??

Okay, seems like I’m the catch of the day for Mr. mosquito -.-

No nets in the store!! Now how will I catch my mosquito? I wasn’t joking before, I want a mosquito as a pet!

I’m really impressed how in so many months, Ebatong managed to only have a few more weeds than usa in a week or so 😛

Gift #1 by Octavian

 

Gift #2 by Dotty

 

A note in a bottle!!

Gift #3  o_O Wait a minute, the note in the bottle from you aunt for some reason calling you Timmy, the 3 presents, Jemmaa… were you planning in escaping Ebatong with your aunt as Timmy?? You should be ashamed of yourself! 😆

Heh, this made me laugh and instantly think about Resetti! xD

Part Five: Extra Chapter

Yeah, since my blog is kind of “book” themed, I’ve decided to give it an Extra Chapter (that’s surely not the last one) so you will be seeing me publishing lots of new original stuff, projects, contests… including a project both Emma and I came up with and that we will be doing together, which I will not leak any information so you’ll just have to wait! I can only tell you the idea sounds very exciting and I am truly curious to see how it turns out!!

Part Six: Logo

I leave to all of you kind of the “long awaited” logo I made. There’s actually two of them and I don’t really know which one is the official, anyways here you are:

   

 

And here is the profile image of my blog’s gmail, that I actually really like how it turned out. Nothing special, I just like the effect it has 😛

 

 

Last part: Goodbye!

So, everything comes to an end, and this is me saying goodbye and until September everyone! Remember to try and catch plenty of bugs because almost everyone of them is available in July but especially try to catch those tarantulas, because it’s the last month you’ll be able to!!

So, I wish all of you an outstandingly amazing summer!! See ya’ later alligator, or… see ya’ soon raccoon 😆

How to… Catch Tarantulas and Scorpions: Step by step

Hello sweet pumpkins 😛 How’s summer going? Catching plenty of bugs, remember in August 42 of the 56 bugs in Animal Crossing Wild World are available to catch, including Tarantulas and Scorpions.

Since they’re the 2 hardest bugs to catch for most people, I decided to do a little step by step tutorial that will both help me and you to catch these nasty little bugs!

So let’s start by getting to know better these little (or big) bugs

 the little images of the bugs (only) are from strategywiki.org

Okay, so know that we know when and where to catch them, the bells they put in our pockets (or the occupation in our museum) we can try to catch them. Pay attention and listen to me when I say do NOT hold a net, if you do and the Scorpion or Tarantula sees you it will run to attack you!

Notes: These bugs will not appear when it’s raining/snowing or when the gate is open.

  1. WITHOUT holding a net I’d recommend  just plugging  in some headphones to our nintendo and start listening to our game, naturally, not inside any building, just outside. Meanwhile you can read something, write, play games without a lot of noise…
  2. Whenever you hear a bug sound pickup your nintendo and check if you see a Tarantula or a Scorpion, if you don’t but you still hear the noise, walk around very slowly looking for the bug, also keep your eyes open for other bugs that might have mistaken you with their sound. Remember, do NOT hold a net!!!
  3. If you have spotted your catch of the day, it’s time to spot their back. If you see a Scorpion, it’s easy, just look for its tail. And if you see a Tarantula it gets a little more complicated; try advancing slowly towards it (not holding a net) until it moves a bit, be careful not to scare it too much or it might end up running in the ocean/river. The opposite direction that it moved will be its back.
  4. Now, sneak up upon them from behind (where they can’t see you) and when you’re 100% sure they can’t see you bring out your net, advance just the right distance and…
  5. WAP! Swing your net and hope for the best!

Did you catch it? Did it run away, or did you run away? Even worst, did it sting you? Leave a response in the comments below! I will try to add pictures to this tutorial soon, whenever I spot one 🙂

If you didn’t catch it, don’t worry, there will be other times! So keep your heads up and hope for more, oh! and after you donate both bugs in the museum a surprise is waiting for you…

You can also try other methods showed in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_clvBgI2mic   I explained the easiest way that I know, but maybe you find easier one of the methods from this video. 😉

I really hope this helps you guys, the greatest of luck and… Happy Summer!!!

Party, party at An Ville!

Hello everyone! This was a party that happened several weeks ago, at An Ville, it was organized by Choco from chocosacjournal. Amy and I were invited to it, so we attended and had tons of fun!

I like to talk to neighbors and shop before going to a party, so that’s probably why I’m always so late xP and I cough a few sweet sentences by Apollo (picture above) and Kid Cat, my second newest neighbor.

 

Haha, I though this was a funny letter to get Foreign Fruit, I actually had this song stuck in my head all afternoon 😳 (seriously)

Yipee, let’s get over there!

Me apologizing for being late, but they had waited for me! I though that was very sweet.

Cute pic of the three of us, all thinking.

And Amy was trying to get a pic of my anime eyes, apparently there is a glitch that during wifi when you change clothes/accessories it makes you have anime eyes for a bit. This picture is taken by Amy, all copyrights to actownrecord.

So we started the first game, a treasure hunt, but it had something special to it, we had to dig up the timer!

Amy dug up a triforce, so I asked her if I could touch it, she gladly said yes! Thanks Amy!

 

The second game was like a special game of tag, Choco was it, and she had to catch us, but there were some bases (the ones with the numbers) where she couldn’t get us. And depending on the number of the base was the number of seconds we could stay there.

 

And lastly there was a race, with pitfalls and holes, Amy won the game 😛

So, after the games she let us explore her town, that is pretty new, so it was very fun to explore it and keep digging holes from the treasure hunt.

I love the shape of Claire’s house! And she has a purple roof, like me!!

While digging a little more, I found a throne, woot! 😀

Yay, it’s Nook & Go, I really missed the types of Nook’s store and houses, so that’s what I like best of having Ebatong.

I told them that my spring party, was partly also a birthday party, they were very surprised, haha! I didn’t want to make it the official “my birthday party” because I though Spring was reason enough to celebrate and I didn’t want to make it all about me, I just like so much spring!

Visiting Ribbot’s house, he didn’t remember me *_*

 

Claire also entered, and when we both came out we fused! My favorite moment was when our eyes combined!

 

A little chat about Harry Potter movies v.s the books and, of course, about the Hunger Games! 😮

Aww, it’s Chow! Emma hated him, so she wanted him to move from her town, he finally did 😆 Although I kinda like Chow…

  

To end up the party, we used our emotions. Sadly, Claire doesn’t have any, so it was basically Amy and I.

Although Claire still has a lot of personality, look at the first picture, he’s showing us the “I will kill you” face 😆

I had a wonderful time Choco and Amy, or Claire and Twisk 😛 Thank you so much for inviting me, Choco! And sorry for posting this so late!
