Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Down Like a Clown

Stalk Market for Monday, July 29

AM: 120
PM: TBD

Once again I bought too many turnips. This week they were selling for 100 in Hanabi. I didn’t have the luxury of checking my other towns’ prices because I’m…behind in them. So I bought 6,200 (those last 200 were accidental) at 100 bells apiece. I’m a bit worried this week because I’m a day behind in Kasen—Saturday in addition to having class, was the J-POP Summit in San Francisco, so I was gone all day and didn’t have time to play three games. I caught back up in Quantico yesterday. But I’m still a day behind in Kasen. I’m hoping this doesn’t affect the turnip market in those towns, but I’m a bit fuzzy on what exactly triggers the dreaded downward spiral in prices.

So if Hanabi doesn’t have great prices or if my turnip price scouting fails…I’m screwed.

The Weekend in Hanabi

I haven’t played as much as I’ve wanted to partly because of busyness and partly because I’ve been playing Fantasy Life: Link. I hope to blog about it a little bit because I can take screenshots now. I ♥ games that let me take screenshots! Here’s how Hanabi’s weekend shaped up:

Yesterday I went to Best Buy and downloaded a few double-neck guitars. You can remake them several different colors (they start off yellow), use clothing, or a custom design. I was hoping you could use ore to remake them as well, but you don’t seem to be able to. I would love a sparkly double-neck guitar like a pink rock candy. :)

I’m sure I’ll play more later, but I wanted to get this blog pounded out so I can go catch up in Kasen.

I awoke to a violent thunderstorm. I don’t have any special visitors, but I have a moon for sale.

I’m so excited that August is almost here. I can’t wait to see the fireworks displays on Sundays. I’m tentatively thinking of opening each Sunday night for a couple hours to celebrate with people. I feel like it’s rough for me to open at night though when half the world is already asleep (stupid GMT -8). But we’ll see how it goes.

August 15th is Obon in Japanese versions of ACNL. I intend to open Kasen for that festival so you can come over and pick up an eggplant cow or a cucumber…um horse? Something like that. If you’re interested, put it in your calendar (I’ll open from 10am – noon PST). If you can’t make it, suggest an alternate time and I may be able to open for you. If you want to come please leave me your friend code. I’ll comment with Kasen’s after I go look it up. Feel free to wear a kimono or happi coat for the spirit of the event.

Last year I danced in the Obon festival in Salt Lake City and got to wear a kimono for the first time. It was a lot of fun.

Me in a kimono last year. Not pictured: flip flops.

August 16th is my birthday. I’m going to be ooooooooooold. So cheer me up by visiting Kasen and bringing something to Obon festival. :P

That’s all for now.

It was the grand opening of T&T Emporium. I had no special visitors, but who needs special visitors when you have a 3 story department store with a swanky boutique on the top floor. Before I visited the Emporium I watered absolutely ever flower in the village in anticipation of people coming over today. I get so embarrassed showing off the town when it’s full of wilted flowers. Naturally it rained in the afternoon. $*@(^!!!

I didn’t take too many pictures of the inside of the place, but I had a few bells in my pockets and thought maybe I would buy a piece of furniture for Yumi to take some of the strain off of her pockets. Then I remembered that I have rich town ordinance and everything is more expensive here…so I refrained.

Score! Even though I didn't buy anything she gave me my final mannequin

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Time of Least Convenience

Stalk Market for Wednesday July 24

AM: 139 Bells
PM: 100 Bells

I kind of shot myself in the foot with my impatience. I’m always jittery with the stalk market when I buy more than about 500 turnips. So, with about 600,000 bells riding on this week’s prices I was ultra nervous. I religiously checked Hanabi, Kasen, Quantico, and my husband’s town of Jisuna which is a day behind…

Hanabi’s prices seemed to be falling, but as you can see spiked up a little today. Kasen appeared to be on a rollercoaster. Jisuna was hard to tell because it was only Monday yesterday (but his pm today is in the 170s, so it may go up). Quantico is many hours behind—as I write this as 2:30pm, it’s 7:30am there. I set it back for the bug tourney and then didn’t want to jinx turnip prices so left it. So I didn’t know how prices were going until late. Quantico’s PM price spiked up to 214 and I sold. I didn’t make a huge profit, but I didn’t lose money.

I want to make a huge profit because I’m giving all proceeds to Yumi to pad her bank account. She’s currently at 11.9 million. I’m going to leave the money in her account until August 1 to get interest, then spend too much on the rest of the Gracie set. It’s so expensive:

The items I need are bolded:

Item price
Gracie wallpaper 124,000
Gracie carpet 124,000
Gracie bed 250,000
Gracie chest 120,000
Gracie lamp 120,000
Gracie bench 110,000
Gracie chair 150,000
Gracie wardrobe 350,000
Gracie low table 68,000
Gracie desk 250,000
Gracie shelf 350,000
Gracie wagon 300,000
Gracie wall clock 150,000
total: 2,466,000

The items I need come out to the trifling sum of 1.77 million bells. Ugh. I intend to buy them starting August 1 because Gracie’s semi-annual sale starts August 15th—also a Japanese holiday and the 16th is my birthday! TMI. rambling. Back on track—some of the items are “sold out” during the sale. I don’t want to miss any of them because I was being overly miserly. But it occurs to me that I’ll have two towns with Gracie Grace now so maybe I should wait? Gah take my money!

Nooklings is closed today for upgrading. In honor of its grand opening I’m hosting a party in Hanabi on Friday from 8am PST (GMT -8 —IIRC that’s 0時 東京時間帯) until let’s say Noon or until I fall asleep on my 3DS. Whichever comes first. I thought I’d do it a little earlier in case anyone in Japan wants to visit. :) I’ll leave everything in the shop including Gracie furniture, fertilizer and bushes, but it’s first come first serve. I’ll also leave out the usual assortment of DLC to catalog and maybe some street pass items (pinwheels, ice cream etc.) to take home.

Speaking of DLC, I don’t have any Korean friends or Korean DLC. Does anyone have either DLC I can catalog (and redistribute if it’s orderable) or a friend they could introduce me to?

And does anyone know anything about the Japanese clerk’s shirt that was apparently distributed in error? Completionist me wants one.

Speaking of O’Hare—or as my husband calls him, Santos the traitor—today was his birthday. Naturally I avoided him all day because I didn’t have a present. The Able Sisters didn’t have anything I thought he would like. I was about to see what was on sale at Jisuna when Rooney gave me a swell tee which was exactly what I was looking for—modern and orangish. His favorite style and color.

I had to get wrapping paper in Kasen, but I regifted Rooney’s shirt successfully and O’Hare loved it.

I didn’t expect to see Phineas today and I certainly didn’t expect to see him twice. The first time I saw him he gave me the Neighborhood Traveler badge. I guess I’ve gotten out more than I thought…and the second time I saw him he gave me the Silver Medalist badge for getting medals on the island. I blame Club Tortimer for that one.

Now I just need the dream suite badge and the weeding badge. I’m making a list of all the dream addresses you guys (my readers) have submitted. So once I get down to visiting that shouldn’t be very bad. The weed badge sounds impossible. If any of you out there are weed hoarders and need someone to come over for grass day, I’m your weed puller! Otherwise I may have to do something drastic with Quantico.

Bugs

Despite what seems like countless hours looking for a scorpion I haven’t even seen one lately. I’m still trying…But I finally caught a leaf bug, so the scorpion is the only critter I need for July.

And I think that’s about all that’s new in the land of Hanabi.

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: A Hysterical Fan

Stalk Market for Monday, July 22

AM: 53
PM: 49

I have a lot riding on the stalk market this week. I sunk the most money ever into it and purchased 6,000 turnips. If you have a high price this week, you’ll be my new best friend. :P So far my prices have me terrified. And needless to say I’ve got a sticky note going to input prices from all my towns. If one of them has a high price I’ll advertise most on twitter.

Let’s see, it’s been an eventful few days. I guess we’ll start with:

Bug-Off

I have been hoarding bugs for a bit. I had butterflies from around town, bugs from the island. I had a little of everything. I took notes as I turned in bugs from what I thought would be least to most points. The most bugs I turned in were Agrias Butterflies (11) and they scored anywhere from 69-97 points. My island bugs really didn’t do that well, but I think I just had bad luck with them. My cyclommatus and horned elephants didn’t even break 90 points. The Horned Atlas got from 81-94 points (I had 4 of them). The goliath beetles looked promising. I only had two, but they scored 110 and 112 points respectively. My final bug was a Horned Hercules and he scored me my winning 134 points. From my horde of bugs I got:

  • Cicada Stereo
  • Beetle Chair
  • Mini Butterfly Table
  • Honeybee Chest
  • Spiderweb Clock
  • Butterfly Wall

Not a bad haul! Even though I could have sold those bugs for a lot of money. Between my towns the only Bug-Off item I’m missing now is the Firefly Lamp. I have a few extra bug-off items to trade (honeybee chest, cicada stereo, caterpillar sofa) if anyone has a spare Firefly Lamp.

Later That Evening

After the hullabaloo of the Bug-Off had died down I went to see K.K. Slider. A lot. I requested about 25 songs from him when all is said and done. I was hoping he would give me his picture, but he didn’t. I imagine you have to go for 20 separate visits to get that elusive item.

I sat in every single chair.

Before the Bug-Off began I was out and about watering, pulling weeds, just doing menial chores when Kitt approached me with a fabulous idea for Hanabi:
HNI_0075

I don’t know why everyone wants chairs and hammocks and stuff. You know what I want? A different bench. No one has suggested a bench. All I’ve got to work with is the default bench and it’s not very exciting.

Ok, not everyone wants a chair. Sheldon wants a solar panel. Clean energy is great. And some part of me almost wants to put this in just because I haven’t build anything beside a zen lamp in a while, but I’m still holding out.

Campers

I almost dread going into the camping tent since Hanabi is full. I’m afraid that some adorable creature will be in there that I won’t be able to coerce into moving in. (I’m looking at you Annalise and Bunnie!) Fortunately the last couple of campers have been…not my favorites. For example:

yes weirdo. (Are you a dog? ) I'm the mayor.

Club Tortimer Hopping

In the evening I decided to try my hand at island hopping again. I had (IMO) a pretty successful run.

Muumuu!

Muumuu!

I found chocolate bars. I bought one to give as a gift. And then I found the Muumuu. Muhaha! Now I can eat all the chocolate bars I want and wear the muumuu. Actually a few of the islands I visited had the muumuu. I bought another one either to give to Yumi or to give away as a gift.

Then I took a break because I had scheduled a house visit with Victoria (more to come on that later)

And then I island hopped a bit again. I came across a sand castle I had to have it. Unfortunately I was short 3 medals. I mentioned that, but the person on the island just left, so I went and did a tour by myself and bought it.

Me in the muumuu with the new sand castle in the beach room. Ahh relaxin'

Today in Hanabi

Today has been very eventful. I checked my mail and had a letter from Victoria. I thought it would contain a tumbleweed or something to thank me for letting her visit, but she sent me her picture! Yay! Now if she wants to move I can let her go without regret.

Fashion Check

I was hoping I would see Gracie this week. I only need one more positive evaluation before the Home Center upgrades to the Department Store.

She wants to see an official outfit

She wants to see an official outfit

Gracie wanted to see an “official” outfit. Naturally I did a little research and enlisted the aid of Yumi’s vast closet I was able to put together an outfit without ordering anything.

Here’s what I wore:

  • white police cap (EU DLC)
  • pilot shades (they were in my Labelle’s)
  • waistcoat (GracieGrace during “sale”)
  • white formal pants (Gracie Grace during “sale”)
  • white leather shoes (Gracie Grace summer)

There are official socks/tights but I didn’t have any in Kasen or Hanabi, so I just went sockless. I thought about throwing something on since she always seems miffed when I don’t have anything other than the style she wants to see, but I didn’t know what would go well with official so I decided against it.

Horticulture

Because I’m made of money (not) I planted two money trees around the fountain (using Yumi’s golden shovel). I only put about 60,000 bells in each hole. But I have the rich town ordinance and a pretty good feng shui room, so I’m hopeful that they’ll grow. I’m also slowly putting blue roses all around the fountain.

Hopefully that grows into a money tree.

And that’s all I’ve got so far. Fingers crossed about the department store!

Club Tortimer

I’ve also started to ask Kapp’n to let me visit go to the island with other people. I feel like this is stretching the truth a bit. I don’t actually care who’s on the island. I go over, see what’s for sale, and leave. Rinse and repeat. I feel a little bad when I do it because half the time I don’t even say hello, but I’m on a mission to find stuff! So far my mission hasn’t been going all that well. I found a red wetsuit that I had to have.

HNI_0020

The next day I saw a blue wetsuit I didn’t have, but I refused to spend all my medals on another wet suit. Then I found the cabana screen I needed…I didn’t want to buy it because I could find that on any old island, but I bought it so that next time I saw it it wouldn’t tempt me. The only cabana item I’m missing now is the wallpaper.

I still haven’t found anything I consider really exciting on Club Tortimer, but I’ll be going to hunt again after I get a few medals.

Cabana L☆cke

The outside of her house is a cabana. Kind of goes against Hanabi’s zen theme, but what’re you gonna do? I didn’t want a clone of Vella’s house. I suppose when it’s expanded I can add the zen exterior shape so it kind of matches.

As those of you who have read for a bit know, I’m pattern-challenged. But Pikopuri magazine’s August issue had an awesome hibiscus pattern, only I didn’t like the color. They show the full grid of the pattern, so I was able to recreate it and then tweak the color on it to something I liked. Yeah, it’s a little much as wallpaper and floor, but I think I’ll leave it for a while (like the emerald encrusted green set doesn’t make you a little nauseous).

HNI_0067_2

No more Deep Thoughts

Last night I fished out the last scallop I needed to complete my pirate theme. The last item I needed was a keg. The theme isn’t really on display yet, it’s in my museum room with all the DLC and spotlight items I haul out when people visit. I hope to put it in L☆cke’s house if she ever gets another room.

Suite Dreams

Thanks to everyone who submitted their dream address! I hope to slowly visit you all. :)

So far the only village I’ve dreamed about is PikoPuri village (yes, the magazine I mentioned previously). Each magazine comes with a book of the most awesome dress designs and cutouts, so I was really excited to visit their village. But, sadly it wasn’t nearly as enchanting as the magazine. There were no paths. There was no order to the village. The houses were tiny and the only patterns you could take home was the flag and the things that say “Photo Spot”—which I initially thought said photo soot.

If you'd like to visit the village, here's the code.

Mikuro, my Hero!

I asked my friend on twitter if he would trade something for the three pieces of 7/Eleven DLC I am missing. Apparently he had everything I could have possibly traded him, but gave them to me anyway as a present. I hope someday I can repay his kindness! The hardest part about trading with him is the time zone difference (since he’s in Japan and I’m in California). Even using the internet I got the agreed meeting time wrong. Or rather, the site I was using didn’t take daylight savings into account and I ended up opening my gates an hour early… **yaaaaawn**

But I had a blast meeting up with Mikuro and showing him around my sleepy town. Apparently the only animals awake at 7:00am are Kitt and Sheldon

I had Katrina and I wasted all afternoon hauling over 4 residents from Kasen and 4 residents from Quantico as well as L☆cke and Vella, only to find out out of towners getting their fortunes told didn’t count toward Katrina opening a shop in town. Grumbles.

Oh, and the prize from Gulliver from Easter Island? A moai statue. Pretty cool.

Turnips Unloaded

The high point of yesterday was visiting Shinkuu of Bakatown and selling my turnips for 473 bells apiece. Thanks Shinkuu!

I made just enough off of that to give to Yumi in Kasen and push her to the 10,000,000 bell mark. Hooray! I think I’m going to hold out until August 1 (to get interest), buy the summer Gracie series, and then continue on to 20,000,000 bells and beyond. I haven’t had a good stalk market week in any of my towns in a while, so maybe now’s the time to sink a million bells in it?

Badge Man

After coming back from Bakatown the badge man gave me the Pro Turnip Trader badge. This has much more to do with the kindness of others letting me sell than my prediction skills which are notoriously awful.

Today’s Highlight: Gracie

Just in time for the picture of my outfit of the day (mine are usually not very exciting or changed often enough) Gracie showed up. She wanted to see an ornate outfit. After doing some research I decided to borrow from Yumi’s giant collection of Gracie clothes.

I'm glad she doesn't judge me when I show up. This is the crazy stuff I normally wear. Yup I wander around in wet suits a lot.

My ensemble is:

  • hair-bow wig
  • pink lace-up dress
  • rainbow tights—they were on sale in my Kicks. Only others are fishnets
  • Leopard Pumps—apparently these are the only ornate shoes

I was really torn about whether to wear an accessory or not. There are no ornate accessories. I decided I wanted to wear the heart shades anyway. They’re considered “cute”, but since they’re from Gracie’s store I hoped she wouldn’t mind.

I was relieved when she told me I looked like I’d come straight out of a fairy tale (a Lolita one maybe?). Her reward for nailing the outfit was a Gracie Chest…which was exactly what she gave me last time I passed her evaluation. So, I’ve got a Gracie Chest to trade!
