Girls Mode 3 Color Palette

Girls Mode 3 introduces a reason to take pictures in game: the color palette. You start off with only a few colors in each shade, but when you go to different locations and take pictures you can show the pictures to a girl in the park. If you’re lucky she’ll find a new color in the photo and it will be added to your color palette. You can then use those colors for hair, makeup (and presumably clothes design, but I haven’t unlocked clothes design yet).

Either you can run around and take pictures of everything hoping there may be a color in the photo (did that), or you can chat with people who have rainbow colored exclamation marks next to them for a hint about a photo to take. Here are the color palette colors with the photos I used to unlock them. I’m not sure if it’s more helpful to be in palette order, or location order, but I’m going with palette order for these.

Since the game is in real time, I’m missing a few seasonal colors and I haven’t unlocked a couple areas or seen a few cutscenes for colors. I’ll add in those pictures as I unlock them. There may be duplicate images because some images give you more than one color.

Also note, these are direct translations of the Japanese names and the English names may change when (crossing fingers) the game gets localized.

Style Savvy Trendsetters: Baby the Stars Shine Bright

I feel like this is off topic…but I got some DLC items a few days ago for Style Savvy Trendsetters. I was really excited because the designer they were from “Baby the Stars Shine Bright” is an actual designer and has a store in San Francisco. I wonder if the in game clothes are real clothes?!

There were two outfits to download. I only took pics of one of them so far. And though the backdrop was cute I didn’t get pics of the shoes or tights. Maybe I’ll play some more later.

I’ve gotten to the final contest in the game and it’s hard! All the others were easy, but I’ve done this one twice and lost both times. I came in fourth last night which was just embarrassing.

Animal Crossing + Style Savvy <3

As a tie in with Animal Crossing A New Leaf’s Japan release, style savvy added two brands to their shop: “GracieGrace” and “Club 444”.

As you download the items, they are displayed on a revolving manequin.

The GracieGrace items


The KK Shirt with the front and back pictured.

Once I figured out how to get the items in game I rushed off to the photo studio to get professional pictures taken. The GracieGrace line includes five items a dress, sunglasses, hat, boots, and purse.

The Club 444 brand only has one item: a DJ KK T-Shirt.
