Lyra’s fairy-tale house so far, with its new wall. All I “need” is the fence, but like I mentioned in the last post, I’ll probably be moving her house’s location, so I’ll have to start over in collecting house parts. At least I haven’t spent much on expansions yet!
I’ve been getting lots of boring, not-so-useful emotions lately, and this new sighing emotion aptly expresses my feelings about it. -_-
- Tuesday, July 23 (Day 44):
It’s beautiful when the sky starts to lighten in the mornings and there are still some stars visible.
It looks like Estel’s hedge will be short-lived since this fancy fence I’ve been wanting has finally showed up!
A new SpotPass house arrived in the HHA showcase 😀
Her house is probably my favorite so far, it has so many things I’d like to order! I haven’t focused much on room-decorating or setting up exhibits in the museum’s second floor because I figured my catalog was too limited to do it properly (and I don’t like starting projects when I feel I can’t do them properly), but maybe I can start working on those things now. ^_^ This room of Lindsey’s will be especially helpful for the Astronomy exhibit I want to make. 🙂
My first bridge request… not one I plan on using.
- Wednesday, July 24 (Day 45):
I do like the new fancy fence more than the hedge, I think 🙂
I ordered an aurora screen from Lindsey’s HHA house the day before, thinking it might make a good addition to my sky-themed room. The bottom of it is black, though, which bugs me since the room is white. I tried to hide the bottom of it by putting it behind this table, but I’ll probably just take it out… it’d be more fitting for a nighttime sky-themed room, anyway.
I can match Melba now, haha 😛
It’s starting to feel like my neighbors are trolling me with all these modern requests. xP Not that there’s anything wrong with modern projects — they just wouldn’t work in my town! In fact, later on I visited someone who’s made great use of the modern clock in their town ^_^
I went to three different towns, and all were first-time visits! 😀
First I went to Courtney’s town of Odd Spot to do a trade, and then I got to look around. 🙂
She gave me the cat tower DLC I missed out on, and I gave her the rolling suitcase DLC, which she wasn’t able to get when she went to Best Buy. I was pretty bummed when I realized I’d forgotten to pick up the cat tower, so it feels great that I was able to get it after all, thanks a lot Courtney! ^_^
I couldn’t help but go admire this statue fountain right away, ahh, I love it! 🙂
It’s hard to get it all in one picture, but the town tree plaza is well-decorated with brick patterns, hybrids, and orange trees, creating a warm, sunny effect:
Estel’s first cup of coffee of the day 😀 (got 2 more later :P)
Wish I had a lighthouse! I’ve heard that animals of any personality type can request one, so I’m surprised no one has yet.
I love the design of Courtney’s house, like a cottage in the woods 🙂
And the mixed-and-matched pink and blue customizations on Pinkie’s house look so pretty together!
Meeting and chatting with some of the charming residents of Odd Spot:
It was O’Hare’s birthday! ^_^ He didn’t have the party decorations set up while I was in town, but I wished him a happy birthday all the same.
Before I left, Courtney let me buy this regal bookcase, previously belonging to Kitty. I’m collecting the regal series and it’ll be nice to have this piece with a bit of history from a resident of another town. Thanks for letting me look around, and for the cat tower and bookcase! 😀 Odd Spot is such a lovely cozy town. 🙂
A bit later on I had a WiFi set up with Cassidy in her town Miagen. 😀 We’d WiFied a few times before, but I hadn’t been to her town yet.
A little gift exchange: I gave her an arched window because I thought it might look good in her haunted Rococo room (at least while waiting for something better to come along), and she gave me a star projector (for my Astronomy exhibit, how thoughtful!) and a stained glass lamp I’d been eyeing in a SpotPass house (but couldn’t order >_<). Thanks so much! 😀
She has gorgeous paths set up in her town, and coupled with the surrounding trees and flowers, it gives such a lush atmosphere.
Ah, it’s the villager who has the same name as one of my characters. 😛 Hope she never turns up in Citalune, that would be confusing!
Random tidbit: Back when I created a character for Violet and typed in her name, it actually wouldn’t accept the name. I got the impression that the censor for curse words caught something? I just found it strange since there’s an actual AC character by the name of Violet. I had to use a different character for the “o” for it to work.
Aww, Bluebear! She’s such a cute peppy villager 😀
While looking around, the first house I came across was this log cabin. Very cozy!
I loved this little kitchen inside with the log cabin wall! Now that we can change the exterior of our houses so much, it’s fun to try to get a unified feel to the entire house, inside and out, and for all the rooms — makes it feel more realistic. 🙂
The next one I found was a cute cabana house, again with a matching interior and exterior:
I’ve heard that you can customize cabana furniture with gold ores, and I wonder if that’s what these are? Not sure, but they seem brighter than what I remember.
This wall radio is actually one of my own personal favorite items so far! It plays all these different clips of music (some unfamiliar and some familiar, like once I heard K.K. Ragtime) with a fuzzier quality than most music players, and there are often voices and laugh tracks in the background. It just gives off a nice atmosphere, I think.
This stone one with an impressive garden is the mayor’s! 🙂
And inside I found the haunted Rococo room — the eerie blue lighting and Hypno K.K. really complete the mood!
Pic together by the town tree 🙂 For a lot of us, our town trees have been stuck at this size a while, hope it grows again soon!
She’s got an illumination park started, so pretty ❤ I love that it's illuminated even though it's not nighttime yet, it looks beautiful in the sunset.
Posing in the heart 😛
We went to the island and managed to do one tour before WiFi crashed, and then decided to eat dinner instead of resuming the WiFi. Thanks for having me over, Cassidy, I enjoyed exploring your town! 😀
Later in the evening I visited Windfall, the town of Jasper, a new 3DS friend I made recently through Cassidy. Shortly after, Cassidy arrived in Windfall as well.
Jasper and I at the entrance 🙂 He was kind to offer a tour of his whole town, and gave me lots of K.K. songs, thanks so much for those! 😮
I really like this wisteria arch and its placement near the waterfall, and how he’s used the stream patterns all around.
A fun neon area 😀
This is probably my favorite spot in Windfall! It’s hard to get all in one picture, but it’s like a modern park you might find in a city, with the fountain and its garden as the focal point, street lamps all around, a modern clock nearby, and the Resetti Center incorporated into the street. In my town I also have a fountain with paths wrapped around it in a square (though it’s in front of my train station), and I was planning on putting some street lights and bushes around it, so this was cool for me to see. ^_^
After finding out my lucky item from Katrina, Jasper offered to give the cap he was wearing so that I could fulfill it! Thanks so much, I’d been tripping all day and it stopped when I started wearing the cap 😀
Another awesome area in Windfall was this mini-mainstreet with the cafe, town hall, and police station just two spaces apart from each other.
I met some of the residents of Windfall and especially liked Beau:
He wanted to know how long it would take to run to Windfall, which is hard to say since we just take the train everywhere 😛
At the turn of the hour, we made sure to head over to the modern clock 😀 There were some futuristic noises and glowing, shifting rainbows across the screen. I remember reading about this on Cassidy’s blog, and I think her word to describe it (uncanny) fits pretty well. 😛 It’s neat, though! I wonder if any of the other clocks do anything.
Ooh, the regal wall looks nice in the modern structure, it gives the impression of a hotel.
The last place we visited (before WiFi crashed) was the museum’s second floor. I loved this exhibit called the dream hotel, it’s very creative and makes great use of the aurora screens! 😀 Thanks so much to Jasper — and to Cassidy and Courtney as well — for having me over and letting me look around your towns! It was such a pleasurable day of WiFi visits
