Happy Home Designer Portfolio #1

Today I started my career as an interior decorator in Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer. I downloaded the game to my Japanese 3DS and received the theme pictured below. I like to think of the theme as a consolation prize since the physical game comes with 1 amiibo card.

I streamed my first encounter with the game. If you’d like to watch subsequent streams you can follow me at http://www.twitch.tv/V3lla/. I will put past streams up on youtube (assuming I don’t anger Nintendo) https://www.youtube.com/user/s0sostris/videos

Here are some pictures of the happy homes I designed today. Everyone seemed to like their houses.

Lottie’s House

The first client was none other than Lottie/タクミ. I didn’t know the room was for her to begin with, she just said it was a female client who liked lovely things.

marshmallow chairs may not be lovely, but she didn't seem to mind.

Goldie’s House

My next client was Goldie/キャラメル. She said she wanted to be surrounded by books, so I crammed as much reading material into her house as possible.

She likes coffee! I knew I should have given her a coffee cup.

Lopez’s House

The next customer I had to go outside and meet. It was Lopez/トムソン and he wanted an urban house.

This is Lopez outside of Nook Housing  telling me that he wants an urban room.

He gave me the sleek table, glass partition, and the stereo as pieces he wanted in his room.

He's jammin' to the music. You can't see it, but he's got a tambourine.

Because every urban room needs a cup of coffee and a laptop.

Jeremiah’s House

Jeremiah/クワトロ wanted to be surrounded by blue, so I did my best. I decided the blue wall was a little heavy handed and chose the blue tile wall and floor instead.

He really seemed comfortable on that bench.

I got to play "where's the frog". Can you spot him?

Ribbot’s House

I had to choose between Ribbot and a squirrel. Ordinarily I would pick squirrels over frogs, but I have a soft spot for this mechanical frog. He wanted robotic furniture. No shock there.

I don't think he knows what to make of the kettle or the toaster. Obviously he's not acquainted with Talkie Toaster from Red Dwarf.

You can't tell, but he's dancing. It's adorable.

And that’s what my first two hours of gameplay consisted of. Tomorrow (in game) Isabelle is going to be there. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the game!

Still as cute as ever Izzy-chan.
