These days were quiet in my own town, with most of what I accomplished amounting to a few home tweaks. But on Day 45 I had a fun WiFi-filled day visiting the cozy Odd Spot, lush Miagen, and modern city of Windfall.
Monday, July 22 (Day 43):
This is 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!
Lindsey from Autumn’s home is probably my favorite SpotPass house 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. 🙂
Wednesday, July 24 (Day 45):
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.
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:
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 near a woodland waterfall. 🙂
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 sounds like they love living in 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 because of how it was customized >_<). 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 Citàlune, 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.
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 homey atmosphere, I think.
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!
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.
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 café, 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!
