Sunday: Joan sold turnips in my town for 104 bells. Consequently I went over to Wasabi village and bought for 92 bells.
AM: 92 Bells
PM: 88 Bells
AM: 83 Bells
Day 95: Sunday
I’m going to try and gloss over Sunday and get to the holiday…
Cutout in Wasabi village. Very cool!
Neko’s poor snow mama. I think it’s my misshapen snow kid’s long lost mother.
I got the bronze letter writing badge! (for writing 50 letters)
Regarding VIP Status
Sunday night I did something fairly radical. I knew that I had 3 complete “fairy tale” themed sets; the ice set, the snowman set, and the mermaid set. I also knew I had a ton of random crap in each of those three rooms. So I took everything that wasn’t fairy tale and I dumped it outside in front of the train station. I kept mostly just the set with a few odds and ends that still fit the theme (e.g the stained glass window, flower table & chair). I was hoping to get to the first VIP mark 300,000 points—or have some meaningful critique from Lyle about the house instead of “no, it’s not fairy tale theme.” Fast forward to
I was surprised to find my mailbox full and shaking violently at 9am. I wrote 8 letters to my townies but…I had five letters from the HHA. Each one was congratulating me on meeting another point milestone:
- 300,000 – gold roof
- 500,000 – gold wall
- 700,000 – gold door
- 900,000 – gold fence
- 1.1 million – gold mailbox
There were no prizes attached since those are all exterior items, but I can talk to Lyle and change my exterior to one of them each day. Today I picked the gold mailbox. It should show up tomorrow.
So, the moral of the VIP story: less is more. Stick to the theme and only the theme, and it doesn’t have to be throughout the entire house. The furniture in my other rooms were incomplete fairytale sets but there was a lot of other stuff in those rooms as well.
Today was Festivale. Confetti was streaming. The villagers were all dressed up in samba gear with different colored headdresses dancing around. It was chaos.

Pavé’s colorful arch
If you played City Folk you may recall loathing Pavé by the end of the day (I did). This holiday was no different for me. This time around Pavé wants you to gather 3 feathers of the color he specifies. There are 8 colors of feathers: white, pink, red, yellow, green, blue, purple, and rainbow. You can catch each of them around the village with a net, much like bugs or snowflakes.
I got a Pink feather
As you may imagine, finding 3 of the same color feathers at a time when there are so many different colors can be tedious. Your townies can help you out in that regard. Sometimes when you talk to them they will ask to trade a feather you’re carrying for another color feather (not necessarily the one you need). Sometimes they will want to play a game. If you win they will give you a feather. If you lose they will take one of your feathers—because of that I took to hiding the colors I needed in my mail. They like to play rock, paper, scissors. They also play a gesture game where they show you a couple emotions and you have to figure out what they are describing for example: Margie showed me the music notes, a dance twirl, and clapping and asked me what it was. The answer was: karaoke. The other game I played was one where you had to use the directional pad and choose a direction at the same time as the towny, look left or right, up or down. If you did the same action as they did you won a feather.
When you gathered the requisite feathers and bring them to Pavé he dances, gives you a piece of furniture and tells you what color he wants next. Unfortunately you still get tons of duplicates. It took me all day to get a complete set. This would have been easier collaborating with other players, but no one was available…
Getting Fired up! Festivale
I caught a rainbow feather!
Rainbow feathers are pretty rare. I caught a total of five of them throughout the entire day. I had hoped that Pavé gave you his picture for a rainbow feather, or at least maybe you were guaranteed a piece of furniture you hadn’t gotten yet. No such luck. One rainbow feather can be given to Pavé and exchanged for a piece of furniture. You can give him one at any time, he never requests rainbow feathers. But it just gives you any old piece. I got duplicates with them. When you hand it over he does a super special dance. That’s about the extent of its uniqueness.

As far as I can tell Pavé’s picture is not in the game. I looked through both my guides. It makes no mention of his picture. I scoured wikis and blogs (in Japanese) I found no screenshots of his picture. Unless there’s some super secret way of getting it, I don’t think it exists.
I have a ton of pictures of Festivale on flickr. If you want to see more screenshots, head over to my Animal Crossing New Leaf set and peruse. They’re not captioned, so if you’re curious what’s going on in one just comment and I’ll try and tell you.
Oh, and Festivale does not end at 6pm (like one of my guides or magazines said). It’s quite pretty at night.
Pavé at night
I’m still recovering from yesterday, so not gonna write much about today.
I got my gold mailbox from the HHA. Tomorrow I will get a gold roof.
Katrina was in town. She mentioned something about good luck with money, but I don’t have the item she said was lucky:
Animal print bottoms
I forgot to mention that I did demolish my fire hydrant. I had Shizue put in a fairy tale clock in its place. I should have it tomorrow since I paid it off. Then I’m demolishing my street sign since it’s in the middle of my path since I had to shift them.
Here’s where the fairy tale clock will go
I also have Maikochan in my town. I haven’t taken her anywhere yet…anyone want her?
Another dino pre-remake
mini! 5 more!
