The beginning of March in Citàlune has brought festivities and events like Festivale and a new Fishing Tourney. Beautiful weather like golden sunsets and meteor showers have graced the skies. New paths have been laid, and there are hints of new villager changes on the way. Spring truly feels like it has arrived. 🙂
One day early in March I sat down to admire the sunset because I thought it looked a tad different than usual.
As the sunset deepened, it became clear that it was a special fiery sunset! It was good to see one again; the last time I had one (last summer), my town wasn’t very developed.
March 3rd was Festivale, which is an especially fun event since there’s confetti and feathers flying about! The first feather I saw and caught was a rainbow one, how lucky. ^^ When I had Festivale in my other town, I searched for a rainbow feather for a long time and never saw one. (This time I got over five!)
I changed my path back to this mosaic one I made a while back! I looked back on old pictures and found myself missing the vibrant color these paths added to my town, and I thought they’d be fitting for the bright colors of Spring and the pink cherry blossom trees coming in the near future. And maybe I was also inspired by the confetti and festive atmosphere of Festivale. ^_^ Though I do like this path, I’d still like to try making a new path eventually — maybe once I catch up to present time and don’t have to worry about my time-travel catch-up process anymore.
Besides admiring the confetti and collecting feathers for myself, I also spent a lot of time fetching feathers for Pavé, and made sure to get all the Pavé furniture before the day was over (though I don’t really have plans for the series). He’s quite the character! 😛
It was also really cute seeing my neighbors singing around town in their Festivale outfits and headdresses:
Overall it was a fun event and I really enjoyed it, even though it could be frustrating at times collecting the furniture with all Pavé’s repeats. And I got tons of feathers, so if you need any, feel free to let me know! xP
Gloria going over some of the things I love most about this game, all the customization options and things you can do to make your town and character and AC life your own 🙂
Nooooo 😥 Her saying this really gutted me, since I’m planning on letting her go 😦
It’s not that I’m spying, his house just happens to be in the middle of the dang road — kinda hard to avoid T_T
Sometimes the “normal” characters in New Leaf actually seem rather…strange 😛
Haha, it’s always fun seeing how neighbors react when you give them foreign perfect fruit!
And he gave me his picture in return! 😀 I’ve gotten the most villager pics from giving perfect fruit, and from returning lost items. Sometime I should take a picture of all the villager pics I’ve gotten so far, but I’ve been too lazy. -_-
I wanted to cover up the town tree plaza’s pavement with a flowery pattern again, and decided to take a lazy approach by just recoloring the same pattern I made last Fall for Spring. 😛
The first rain of 2014 in Citalune! I’m sure it won’t be too long before I’m sick of the rain like I was last year, but for now I’m enjoying it and love seeing everyone’s umbrellas again! And some of my neighbors’ umbrellas I hadn’t seen before, since they moved in during the winter months.
I thought it was really cute how Estel’s preferred umbrella matched those of her two koala buddies! ^_^
Wow, Alice remembering a past town! And this wasn’t the town I got her from, so she must’ve lived in multiple towns before Citalune.
I decided to use the princess furniture Megan gave me in a new bedroom for Violet! 🙂 It might seem kinda similar to Estel’s, since they both have the cloud flooring and a similar style, but I think there are some key differences. Estel’s room is supposed to be a sort of tribute to nighttime with the aurora screens, lunar horizon wallpaper, full moon vanity, and other similar touches. Violet’s room has rainbow screens instead, and a more playful feel with the toys and such. I also wanted it to feel somewhat whimsical/magical, which is a loose theme I want to continue throughout her house, like the magician’s workroom, the fairy feast room, the ~enchanted midnight garden~ in the back room, and so on.
Oh no, I guess it’s getting close to time for Melba to go. 😦 I’ve said it before, but the reason why I’m letting her leave is because I’m being picky about my villagers’ house exteriors and house locations in Citalune, and Melba’s house doesn’t match the others well and isn’t aligned correctly with the others either. I’m sure it seems strange, but maybe you’ll understand better once you see the house of the neighbor who will move in to replace Melba — it’s one of my favorite house exteriors in the game! (Or maybe you’ll continue to think I’m weird. xP) I’ve decided that I’m going to move Melba to my other town, though, so I can continue to interact with her there and have Estel visit her whenever I want. 🙂 But I’m not going to lie, it does sadden me that she won’t be in my main town anymore, and that she won’t get to visit Citalune again (except on Main Street). She hasn’t moved out yet, so I’ll be sure to enjoy my last few days with her in Citalune! ❤
One day I scrolled through my PWP list and I noticed this for the first time! 😮 I wonder how long I’ve had it unlocked, I don’t remember ever getting any notice from Katrina or anything.
I built it right away, of course, and now my Main Street is complete!
After receiving my first reading in her new shop, Katrina offered to sell me a Tingle hood, which I think gives you good luck whenever you wear it? I remember when I saw Ryann wearing this in a WiFi a while back, I thought it was a pikmin hat. xP
Wooooo, my tree grew a bunch! 😀 It’s really getting pretty big now! ^_^
There was another meteor shower in my town! This spot above the bridge is good for watching sky-events, I’ve noticed.
To wrap up this long post (sorry about that, but I guess it’s been a fun and busy half-month!), March’s Fishing Tourney 🙂
It was crucian carp-only this time, and mine got third place. Alice won for the second time in a row! ^^
