My first wi-fi party

Today was my first time WiFing with more than one person and also my first time attempting to host a “party” in my town! 😯 I was both nervous and excited about it, so please excuse any blurry pictures (because my hands were wobbly :P) and that I forgot to take pictures of many key moments! I really need to get better at taking pictures during wi-fi meetings. -_-

So what was the occasion, you say? Umm…back to school party? (Definitely not.) Perfect town party? (Sure! :P) But really, I just wanted to have a wi-fi session with several Animal Crossing bloggers I’ve met! 😀 Thank you so much Teru, Kammile, and Jemma for coming!

Teru’s character Rain came almost as soon as I opened my gates! She realized her brightness setting wasn’t ideal for taking pictures, though, so she left real quick to fix it.

When she came back, Kammile and I were there to greet her and we took a group picture! 🙂


I made some outfits for the occasion; the party hats are in the back row (I thought diagonal stripes looked good for those) and the corresponding dresses are in front. I had each of my guests in mind when I made them: Teru’s is warm-colored to go with Rain’s hair and light brown eyes (but it’s more gaudy than I expected, sorry :P), Kammile’s is pink because her main character likes that color, and Jemma’s is green and blue to go with her eyes. There was also a random pastel yellow one. 😛 But I didn’t tell them which ones I had in mind for their characters; they could wear whatever they want!


Kammile wearing her party outfit, looking good!


Having birthday cake and tea! We didn’t stay there long because I left to look for Rain. In later pictures Rain is back to her original hairstyle (it’s the one her face starts with), which I thought was a glitch at first, but now that I think about it, she might have gotten a haircut at Harriet’s (to look better with the party hat) during this time.

It turned out Rain was outside of my house, so here we all are having an emotion photoshoot. 😛














So after the photoshoot… 😆 Kammile and Rain checked out my house together and I waited outside. Not much has changed about my rooms since their last visit. 😳 I wanted to go all out for the party by completely re-decorating my town and house, with confetti and balloon patterns on the walls and fun music and interactive items. But that was an unrealistic amount to do in one day. 😦 I only had time to organize the games and design the party outfits and a few ground patterns like these balloons.


Yay, Jemma’s here! She saved time by having her own party outfit ready, so let the games begin! 😀


My very first net fight! Thank you for that experience, guys. 😛


Kammile asleep. 😆


Trying to wake her up. 😈 Looks intense in this picture. o_O


Jemma fell in one of the pitfalls I planted for the King Tut race, oops! We had a decent-sized chat before we started wondering why she was still struggling! Jemma didn’t seem to still be in the pitfall on her screen, though, and she was talking to us and everything — what a weird glitch! It was resolved when she entered and left a building, good idea!

So before anyone else fell in any pitfalls, we started the King Tut race! The reason why the masks and pitfalls were included was because everyone runs at the same speed, so some luck factors like tripping and falling had to be introduced to make the outcome more interesting. There was a clear winner, but I’m not 100% sure who it was. I tried to keep my eye on the character who got to the finish line first, but as other identical King Tuts arrived, it became confusing. I thought it was Rain because she removed her mask and I think it was the same character I was keeping my eye on, but I can’t be sure. Next time (if there is a next time :P) no Nile shirts! 😆 But they were good for another photoshoot!




We were trying to get pictures of ‘sand angels’ and this was the closest I got. Splat! 😛


Next was a fruit-eating contest! I’m not 100% sure who won this either, but it was probably Jemma. I was expecting people to pick up a fruit, eat it, pick up another one, etc., but instead everyone picked them all up at once and began eating. 😆 My bad, I didn’t think that through.


Phew, a treasure hunt with no rules or things to measure. 😛 This is a pretty uneventful picture of buried treasure no one had found yet, but if I had taken it a second sooner, Jemma would have been in the background showing off what she dug up. I hope everyone found a few things! 🙂


Kammile fell into another glitched pitfall. I don’t get it; Rain fell in one, too, and got out quickly like normal. 😕

We also played hide-and-seek for a while (because I took forever to find Kammile; I thought she was inside Nookington’s, not outside! :P), distributed presents, and set off sparklers!

Enjoying summer while it lasts! 😀 I didn’t have anything planned after that and a few people had to go, so it was a good time to ‘party over’. I hope you all still had a good time despite the mishaps, like the glitched pitfalls, people getting lost, and flawed games/instructions! 😆 And thank you all again for coming, I was thrilled that everyone could make it. 😀

I spent the rest of the day studying, then I fell asleep early and woke up at 4 AM. I realized I still needed to water my wilted flowers before disappearing at 6 AM! 😮

I found this jacob’s ladder that I think Rain left to make room for fruit. Let me know if you want it back! 🙂


Yay, new constellation ^_^


I was scared to check my town status after dropping items on the ground and clearing two areas of trees and flowers to make room for the race and eating contest, but it’s still perfect! o_O Well, it takes the pressure off to get Dafdilly back to normal immediately! 🙂




Footnote: Please excuse the wrong (or right? :P) dates for these last two posts. I like the date to match the days I’m posting about, not the day I made the post, so I can click on a date in my calendar and see what I did that day.

  1. Haha,It was fun 🙂 i hope we can wi-fi again! My favorite part was the King Tut Race 😆
    I don’t care about the glitched pitfalls 😆 it was kinda funny actually 😀

    I don’t know what kind of DS Teru was using 😳 but if i adjust screen brightness on my DSi,i just hold select and press my volume up and down… that kind of thing doesn’t usually work on some DS,definitely not on my DS lite 😆 It was already broken when i got my DSi 😆 Right Timing?

    • I’m glad! 😀 I’m sure we’ll wi-fi again!
      That’s a cool feature for the DSi, I didn’t know that. But yeah, on DS Lites you have to turn it off to change the brightness. -_-

    • -___- DSi’s can do that? That sounds sooo convenient! Btw I play on a DS Lite.

  2. Oh wow I didn’t know that either! XD I actually enjoyed the glitched pitfalls too XD It was funny and it must of been scary seeing me talking while I was trapped XD Great pictures Amy! You got lots more than I did ’cause I was late 😳 Hehe Sorry about the bad timing 😛

    • I actually forgot at first that you couldn’t talk while in a pitfall (haven’t fallen in one in a while :P), so I didn’t think anything of it, but then I started to wonder, “is this normal?” 😆 And it’s okay, I’m just glad everyone could come! 😀

  3. You updated your header! I like the pic of you in the museum with so much bugs in 2 trees, hehe, at first I thought you weren’t in the museum and then I though: “how’s that possible?” Then I realized,,, aaah she’s in the museum XD

    • haha thanks, I like that one too, with my eyes peeking through the trees. 😛 I think the picture of you, me, and Rain setting off sparklers is really cute since we all have happy faces, pigtails, and party hats! 😀 This might be my last header for summer until the grass and leaves start to change for Autumn.

  4. Wowww… Your observations are SO spot on! I thought the warm design was perfect for Rain, and yes, I did change my hair to suit the hat while you and Kammile were in your house! Are you a Sherlock Holmes or something? xD

    Haha, I was going to ask about the fruit race rules, but it was too much typing so I just decided to play it the smart way xP Oh but I still lost didn’t I o_o

    And I was going to be really bad and hide at Harriet’s during hide-and-seek (so I was inside!), but I thought it was probably against the rules and came outside 😛

    Thanks for the awesome party! It was so well planned and I thoroughly enjoyed it! ^_^

    • haha, it explained why you couldn’t answer us; you were too busy answering Harriet’s questions instead. 😛 Yeah, the communication method in ACWW isn’t the best for game instructions. >_< I'm glad you enjoyed it anyway! 😛 I look forward to seeing your pictures, I bet they're great! 😀

  5. Hello Amy! I got a contest going on and in 3 more days it’s gonna be over 😮 So if you wanna enter: http://acwwbook.wordpress.com/2011/08/25/contest/ Thank you!
