New neighbor and other things

Read → New neighbor and other things

A new neighbor has moved into one of Dafdilly’s beach house properties, and I had lots of fun experimenting with taking full pictures — roof and all — of every single building in town. xP

But first~ there are a few more happy results from my first WiFi session, like this letter from Teru’s Puddles I can keep as a memento of my visit. ❤
Letter from Bundeena's Puddles

How nice, it even had a present attached! Definitely makes up for her less-than-warm greeting when we met. 😛

Blanca's face by IcyStar in Forest

Just as I was leaving the house I saw another (possible) result of my WiFi session with Teru, my first visit from Blanca! It’s funny, I got the Katie & Kaitlin event the day after I first DS-to-DSed between Dafdilly and Red Bank (my dad’s town), and I got Blanca the day after I first WiFied.

Quickly done Kiki-style face for Blanca

My very quick Kiki-Blanca. The pupils are too small.

Curly’s my new neighbor, and I’ve had him before for a while so I’m not ecstatic about it. 😛 I was expecting a neighbor from Bundeena or a different town, so I was surprised to see this one was newly generated.

I like his house, though, with the two windows on top. And he moved by the beach — I love when all three of my town’s beach house locations are filled! Here’s his cotton candy pink and blue house in the sunset:

Usually when you take a photo of a villager’s house from the front like this, you can’t see the top of it, but I used a trick I learned from ACWW Happiness: taking a picture when the main screen shoots up into the top screen after pressing Y or X.

This morning I tried the technique again with my house: 😀

Another picture of my mansion

You can see the tip of my blue head (I wasn’t able to completely crop myself out without making the photo look weird), but it kind of blends in with the stone.

I was excited that my camera could do this (new vistas of opportunity! 😛 ), so I went around taking pictures of the major buildings.

…And the rest of my neighbors’ houses. I was having fun. 😆 Prepare to see lots of boring pictures of houses with me standing thoughtfully in front. 😛

Anyway, enough with that and on to today’s events!

Fully grown peach tree by the gate pond

All my fruit trees are fully grown and laden with fruit now! I’ll probably plant some more, though, because Pelly says I need more green, so there will be more baby trees soon. My town fruit is oranges, but I think peaches work the best with my desired color scheme. The blue cobblestone gate would also go with my town’s pastel colors better than my dark red one. *sigh*

I shot down Gulliver today and had fun dressing up like him! 😛

Good to know! But I think there are more pressing issues to worry about in space than getting eaten, like being hit by a slingshot — erm, I mean comet.

My new mermaid statue from Gulliver

I was hoping for chocolates, but this mermaid statue is really nice too!

In Dafdilly I’ve obtained the Common painting, Strange painting, and Opulent painting from Redd, but recently I donated these other paintings, too:

Moving PaintingBirth of Venus by Botticelli
Amazing PaintingNight Watch by Rembrant
Perfect PaintingApples and Oranges by Cézanne
Fine PaintingJoyousness by Gauguin
Nice PaintingBoy with Flute by Manet
Dainty PaintingL’etoile by Degas
Lovely PaintingMademoiselle Irene by Renoir
Rare PaintingThe Kiss by Klimt
Basic PaintingThe Blue Boy by Gainsborough
Solemn PaintingLas Meninas by Velázquez
Quaint PaintingThe Milkmaid by Vermeer
Warm PaintingThe Nude Maja by Goya
Scary PaintingOtani Oniji II by Sharaku

You guessed it, from my original character’s catalog. 😛 These paintings took years (of admittedly on and off playing) to accumulate and I didn’t want to start from scratch. Plus, I love art history, so having these mini pixelated Animal Crossing versions in my museum is fun! I’m sure it will still take a while to obtain the last four I need: the Famous, Flowery, Worthy, and Calm paintings.

  1. Aww, I thought that WiFing would swap the animals in our 9th slots. Oh well…

    I love your pictures of the houses and buildings! 😀 I wouldn’t have seen the top of your head if you hadn’t mentioned it; blends in perfectly 😛 I guess we have another house shape shared by more than one neighbour.

    Ohhh, so that’s what I’m missing – a Botticelli! I never thought it’d be such a well-known painting I need 😯 Ahhh it looks so nice >_<

    Btw, I'd take a mermaid statue over chocolates any day 😀

    • I thought so, too, but this 9th slot stuff can be hard to predict. 😕

      That house shape is really eye-catching! Rolf and Bluebear have that one as well. I also think Amelia has the same house shape as Anabelle’s. I’m glad I didn’t give up on your technique to get full shots of buildings! I tried the day I got my mansion, but after many blurry, warped shots I figured my camera wasn’t quick enough. By the way, it’s awesome how you were able to do a happy emotion in your full mansion picture! 😀

      So we could complete each other’s painting exhibits. 😛 But you’re probably like me in that you would rather finally find the last painting from Redd, it’d be more epic that way. (If not, I could order the moving painting for you.)

      • Amelia does! And Joey’s is the same as Aurora’s 😀 I wanted to say that but I just get paranoid with those houses cos I can’t tell if the left roofs are all slanted to the same the degree =.=

        Your house shots are perfect ^_^ I had to stitch a top and bottom picture together for the mansion shot so I just did a happy emotion like normal while doing the bottom half (was taken while screen was still).

        I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before the right painting comes along xD But I’d be happy to do a trade with you some time for one painting if you think it’s too easy getting everything in one go but want to speed things up 😛
        I am actually wondering whether I might have 2 missing paintings, because from memory there were two empty spaces. I just can’t think of which other painting I do not have… It better not be Katie’s portrait -_-

        • Maybe eventually I’ll be able to pin down all the house shapes for each house style, and who has them. 😛 And thanks, I was inspired by you because I love all the pictures of your neighbors’ houses throughout your blog. 🙂
          That sounds good, we could arrange the trade if it’s taking too long the normal way. I think you have all the ones I’m missing and vice-versa. I do get frustrated with Redd’s stock sometimes, I think he’s had the apple clock on sale 3 times. >_< I really want the cabin chair for my main room! At least he comes every week, though.

  2. Ooh! I hope you get a Perfect Town soon!
    with the Jacob’s Ladders,some of your neighbors complimenting your town..
    (Margie and Baabara said i have a “cute” town,it was supposed to be
    an elegant looking town O.o with the bushes and stuff 😆 )
    and finally…THE GOLDEN WATERING CAN!!! :mrgreen:

    Good Luck! See you at 10 PM my time and you’ll probably know what
    time at your place 😆 (i’ll be opening MY gates,hope you come!)

    • The jacob’s ladders are a big reason why I want a perfect town! And I agree, your town is very elegant with the flowery hedges and shiny paths. Mine probably qualifies as cute, though. >_>

      Okay, I’ll look for your open gates at 10 AM my time! You should tell some other people the time, too. 🙂
