Animal Crossing New Leaf: Days 114 & 115

Stalk Market

Friday: Day 114

AM: 91 Bells
PM: 114 Bells

Saturday: Day 115

AM: 96 Bells
PM: 107 Bells

Fortunately Neko had a reasonable surge in her stock prices on Thursday evening so I sold my shares for 153 bells apiece. Not a huge profit, but still a profit. Better luck next week.

Lillian is in love with the round radar. It doesn’t seem quite her style, but who am I to tell her she can’t have whatever she wants.

Hakase has the plague (or maybe he has what I have 🙁 ). I brought him medicine. If only my townies brought me some…

Holiday Coming Up

March 3 is the Doll Festival: ひな祭り. To celebrate Nook’s has the doll set for sale as a seasonal item between March 1-3. He also sells a paper-covered lamp (look close at the doll set, they’re on the top shelf). I bought the lamp too, but forgot to snap a picture of it.

If you look closely at the top two dolls on the set you may notice their distinctive hairstyles. Those two dolls are the Emperor and Empress. Labelle sells each of their wigs as seasonal items from March 1-3. I’ve only had the Emperor’s wig so far.

Saharah’s Design (flaws)

Saharah was roaming today. I still haven’t put my furniture back in since her last visit, so I switched wallaper and threw done some random items to influence her design choice.

Day 115

~3/3 is the doll festival ~ Tomorrow is the doll festival. It's also called the peach festival (I think?) Did you decorate your doll set perfectly?

The bulletin board is advertising tomorrow’s festival. I don’t think there’s too much to it, but I know Shizu-chan will be there in a kimono and there will be cardboard cutouts. Now I just have to get Kokuto to come over for picture taking. 😉

Gracie Grace!

I did not expect to see him standing in my town square. And me looking…frightful.

Even though I look like a train wreck I talked to Gracie to find out what my challenge was.

He wanted me to throw together a gorgeous outfit. There aren’t too many gorgeous items. A lot of them—including the only gorgeous pair of shoes—are Gracie items. I did pretty well. Even though Kokuto laughed at my outfit and called me a dwarven princess because of my beard…The king’s beard is the only gorgeous accessory I could find. I don’t even know if accessories count, but better safe than sorry. I had a choice of 3 gorgeous tights: the fishnets, rainbow or wine-red tights. I picked the latter because the color is considered “red” and while I’m not sure if Gracie cares whether my colors match, once again I err on the side of caution.

The only thing that wasn’t gorgeous in my outfit were the shoes. They were “fancy”. It was the best I could do.

If I say fancy and gorgeous...I would imagine the world of a fairy tale dance party!

Sooooo maybe my fancy shoes weren’t horrible. I sighed in relief when he said I passed. And then—he gave me a princess bed. Eeee! my favorite set. I hope he comes back one more time soon and then opens up shop so I can buy the princess set.

  1. LOL whoops I thought it was Girl’s Day? But it’s actually Doll Festival? My bad. 😛

    Congrats on the Princess Bed! I have yet to see Gracie in Wasabi…

  2. You can do re-makes on alot of the furniture. Will it let you do a re-make on the princess theme set. When I get my game in june of AC: New Leaf -3DS. I want to get the princess theme set because I had it in AC: CF – Wii but just didn’t like sky blue for the color. I hope it’ll let a person do a re-make in the game on that furniture because I want to do hot pink or bubble gum pink on the princess theme set. 🙂

  3. @Grietchen as I’ve stated in previously blog entries, in the Japanese game Gracie Grace is male. In the US games Gracie Grace is female—the link to the wiki states this fact on the right sidebar. Since I am playing the Japanese game I refer to Gracie as he.
