I wanted to make sure I got to WiFi a few more times in AC:WW before its WiFi was cut off today on May 20th! Instead of doing like five different posts, I thought it might be best to try to fit them into one. So expect lotsa pics! Also, I’m sorry for the less-than-stellar quality of some of these pictures; I’m much better at taking AC:WW screenshots when I’m not WiFing.
Dafdilly’s Last (Major) Hurrah!
IRL Date: May 12, 2014
(On this day I opened my gates for hours, hoping for visitors! You might’ve seen me post notices about this on wordpress/tumblr 🙂 )
Megan (who I’ve prevously mentioned on this blog as Megan from Blossom and Megan from Bloom, in AC:NL) was the first to arrive! In AC:WW her character is Cakey from Sugarey 🙂
The first thing we did was head to Shampoodle for a haircut. Dafdilly’s Shampoodle has been the home of quite a few friends’ makeovers over the last few years, hehe, I’m glad I’ve been able to help people customize their character’s appearance! (Though no longer 😦 )
Having a picnic with Megan ^_^
Jemma arrived next, and Megan knew of Jemma through her blog AC:WW Book, so that was cool they could meet! 😀 And I loved getting to WiFi with Jemma in AC:WW again, since we’ve been AC buddies for quite a while (since 2011 or so!)
Setting off some sparklers together! ^^
Later on, after Megan and Jemma left, Talie from Osworth came over to visit Dafdilly for the first time! Here we are having some dessert together in my newly restored sweets main room. For a while I had this elegant library as my main room, but it didn’t feel as right to me as this set-up, so I went back to it. (And also, I ended up doing an elegant library in New Leaf!)
Talie and I visiting the lily pond garden 🙂
Unfortunately that’s all the (good) pictures I got; my camera ran out of batteries and my lighting situation wasn’t ideal for taking pictures. If you want to see some pictures Talie took of her visit, check this out! ^_^
And thank you all — Megan, Jemma, and Talie — for coming! 😀 I really appreciate it! It was a better turn-out than I’d hoped, truly a great last hurrah for Dafdilly! ❤
Visiting Cakey in her town Sugarey
IRL Date: May 19, 2014
(Megan wanted one last WiFi together in AC:WW, and this time we went to her town, Sugarey, which is fairly new!)
The first thing I did in Sugarey was buy something from Nookway so that it could become Nookington’s eventually! Phew, just in time, right? Right before it gets a whole lot more difficult for players to get Nookington’s o_o
She gave me a tour around Sugarey, and we stopped to admire this pretty garden of pink and white roses in between her house and museum 🙂
Some cool purple houses by the beach!
An impressive collection of hybrids already!
Those of you who’ve been following my blog for a long time and have very good memory might remember me saying multiple times that this is my favorite pond in AC:WW! I just love the shape and size of it.
Another thing I was quite jealous of, a pond by her house! It’s something I would’ve loved to have in Dafdilly, along with more ponds in general. But I reset for four specific house styles, so I guess I was quite lucky to get those. *sigh* It’s hard to get everything you want in a town.
Blowing dandelions in this peaceful and scenic oceanside spot 🙂
Thank you for the tour of Sugarey, Megan, and for always being so nice! It was awesome and a real treat meeting up with you in Wild World after all our New Leaf WiFis! 😀
Meeting up with Talie one last time
IRL Date: May 20, 2014 (around 1 AM)
(Warning: I might’ve gone a bit overboard with picture-taking! I guess because it really hit me that this would be my last..ACWW WiFi..ever!
After midnight struck, becoming officially May 20th where I live, I decided to try opening my gates to see if AC:WW’s WiFi had cut off yet, and to my surprise and delight, it hadn’t! Also, I happened to have a rainbow in my town, which I thought would be a cool thing to see for any potential visitors who stopped by for the last time:
Shortly after, Talie from Osworth came over! 😀 Hehe, she was online too, I assume doing the same thing as me, checking to see if the AC:WW WiFi still worked. We WiFied from around 1 AM to 4 AM or so, both being night owls. ^_^ It was very fun, I don’t think I’d ever done anything like it before! Like an online AC sleepover or something. 😆
Got a picture of the two of us on my island 🙂
After Dafdilly we went to her town, Osworth! This was my second (and last 😥 ) visit. I never got around to posting my first visit to Osworth on WordPress, but you can check out the photo-set here if you want to see some of my pictures from that meeting! I’d say Osworth was even more beautiful this time, in the sunset and with fewer wilted flowers. And Talie had made some landscaping changes! 🙂
Setting off some sparklers together 😀
Talie gave me a red turnip to eat, how sweet! ^^ I ate it in my favorite spot in her town, the wishing spot. ❤ Not the best capture, ah well!
A better picture of the wishing spot! And there’s an even better one on her tumblr.
What a cool diagonal path! She said she was inspired by the diagonal paths in my town, so I was very flattered. 🙂 Though this is a much different approach, with the large stepping stones instead of spaced bricks! A lot less pattern slots too xD
This is a very impressive tree-lined path, especially considering I’m not sure she did dead-spot testing like I did!
Filbert’s house looks so cute with the blue pansies!
Heh, I’d just eaten one earlier 🙂
Ahh yay, presents left on the ground! I did this once too, as a decoration for the holiday season. Talie let me open one as a souvenir, and it was a surfboard! xD
Another wishing spot, maybe? This is on Osworth’s island.
Such a gorgeous flower arrangement, like a mural, wow!!
This spot is especially vibrant, since blue and orange are complimentary colors. ^^
Bright, lovely cosmos!
A little picnic spot(?) by the museum pond and garden 🙂
I love Olivia, she’s so cute and I’m pretty sure she was the first AC villager I met back in AC:GC! Glad I got to visit her again in Osworth 🙂
Aww, it’s almost like Genji knew! ;_;
This must be Talie’s turnip garden! I love growing red turnips in AC:WW! ^_^
Party popper by the flag~
Man, the pattern and path arrangements in Osworth are so detailed and elaborate! 😮 It kind of boggles my mind how they’re all able to fit the pattern slots limit!
Another elaborate set of patterns! Below the sign there’s a patch of roses 🙂
Yep, more party popper pics. I used all the ones I brought, from my batch I’d been saving for future WiFis… what better time to use them than now, the last WiFi?
Setting off a roman candle in the pretty, mural-esque flowerbed I showed earlier!
Rhonda and Moe’s adorable beach houses! I don’t have any neighbors this close together in my town, they’re all quite spread apart…
The beautiful deep fuchsia and purple starry sky, with a view of a cute constellation of Osworth’s, a smiling face 🙂
Lastly, I requested that we take a picture together by my favorite spot ❤
Aww, time to say goodbye. 😦 It was hard to do! Bye Talie, and stay beautiful Osworth! ❤ Thank you for letting me explore so long into the night!
I tried to open my gates today, just in case, but they are indeed closed for good now. 😦 I don’t know why, but it makes me quite sad that Dafdilly won’t have any more visitors ever again. But at least I was able to make these last ones count, and I appreciate all the ones I had before, too! I’d like to do a tribute to all my AC:WW WiFi memories sometime soon, so look out for it! 🙂

Aww.. It’s so fun reading this…and at the same time sad, because of the wi-fi shutting down for both ds and wii… sigh… I forgot I could’ve just wi-fied with you for the last time on the wii … xD But oh well… It would also be very nice if you, me, teru and jemma would be able to wi-fi for the last time again… xP Osworth is beautiful! I really like the patterns a lot. ^__^ and those eyes!
Oooh! I can’t wait to see that tribute soon.. sounds really exciting! 😀
Yeah, these WiFis have been a bit bittersweet, since it’s fun to WIFi in AC:WW again, but sad since the reason is because the WiFi is shutting down! Though mostly sweet, I’d say 🙂 I forgot about that too! >_< Darn…
If/when you get a new 3DS, the four of us will definitely have to get together in New Leaf!! (Along with other buddies, of course 🙂 )
Oh hehe, it's nothing too revolutionary, so don't get your hopes up too much 😆 But you will be included, of course 😀

Aww I such a lovely time at your town, Amy! Sorry I had to leave so soon, I haven’t been so great at keeping usa looking decent, but I wish the WiFi wasn’t shutting down, it’s so sad!
I liked your pictures! Osworth is such a pretty town! And you managed to keep your town looking amazing, too!
Wild World will still always be a wonderful game for me, and I’m really excited to see how the tribute turns out, sounds interesting!!
That’s okay, I know it must have been late your time, since I think you’re 6 hours ahead of me! I’m just so glad you were able to stop by and be a part of my last hurrah, thank you for that! 😀
Aww, thank you Jemma! 🙂 I do that thing where you load your town on the last day you played, so everything’s how you left it…Heh I haven’t been watering all my flowers every single day since New Leaf came out xD I have been playing some more lately, though! It is indeed sad to think that if I make major changes to my town, or get all my “dream neighbors” or whatever, no one will be able to come visit to see them in person anymore 😦 And of course, it’s always nice to get out of your own town for a bit and visit other towns. We’ll have to WiFi in New Leaf soon!! 🙂
It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I used to play wild world back when I was younger… of course I’ve moved onto new leaf, but I really did love wild world. In fact, my older sister (who is the actual mayor of our new leaf town, but I just like playing on Lurai’s profile) moved villagers into our new leaf town that were in our wild world town. It’s too bad I lost our wild world cartridge, I would love to play it again. I hope to see your tribute! 🙂
Aww, I’m glad to hear you liked Wild World, and a bit of your own memories! It seems like Wild World was a first-time/old favorite AC game for quite a few players, actually. I think the new portability was great, and there were lots of new additions introduced that are now a staple of the series (haircuts, hybrids, emotions, WiFi, etc.).
Wow! Amy! These wifi moments are beautiful! I’m not just talkimg about the ones of us, but imcluding all of the other people who played with you! ^^ Even though the wifi is gone now it will always be in my heart and so will the others’s which come around in the future! 🙂 ❤
Aww thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed looking through them! 🙂 And I agree, it will be the same with me of course!
I’m glad your last WiFis were a success 😀 It’s always nice to see the highlights of Dafdilly in pictures again, including the colourful town entrance and tranquil lily pond garden, and to see Twisk get to stretch her legs a bit again visiting other towns and setting off sparklers 😀 How fitting that a rainbow shows on the final day! That picture merge with the flowery scene below is perfect ❤
Talie's town sure was interesting 😛 What a… unique town entrance o_o And cool pattern designs. I love that wishing spot – that's such a cute idea, writing letters there to send off down the river x3
And ooh, those purple houses in Megan's town do look special lit up at night by the beach 😮
It's sad that AC:WW WiFi is gone for good now, but this was the perfect way to send it off.
Aww I’m glad you haven’t minded the sudden influx of Wild World on my blog again xP I’m sure I’ll be returning to posting New Leaf shortly, though! And thank you, I’m glad they were a success too — not even many WiFi crashes (only one, and nothing was really “erased” then)! And I loved that the first rainbow I’d seen in Dafdilly in ages popped up for its last WiFi 🙂 I was used to the rainbows in New Leaf and how they show up in the background of pictures around town, so I felt the need to merge the rainbow with a town screenshot 😛
It’s such a unique town! I was surprised to see many of the features of her town because I didn’t remember them from her blog, and she said that Osworth is purposefully themed to seem like a bit of an odd town, and that she’d contemplated naming her town Ozworth instead for that reason 🙂 It’s always really interesting for me to see how people make their mark in their towns, and their various unique ideas, like that beautiful wishing spot!
Oh I love this blog, glad I can follow it now!
Very nice, detailed post by the way. You guys look like you had a lot of fun. I have a lot of memories of Wild World. I don’t play it very often now though.
Also could you add my little blog to your blogroll, please? If it wouldn’t be too much trouble of course.
Thank you so much! 🙂 I really like the look of your blog so far too, I’ll follow it and add it to my blogroll!
Yeah, I don’t play Wild World extremely often anymore either, sadly, since New Leaf keeps me busy enough. But I like to check up on it every now and then, and I have lots of fond memories playing it as well.
Thank you very much!
I’m giving my copy of the game to my sister. I’m sure she’ll play it more than I do.
