My first Animal Crossing fashion show

Tonight I discovered that I had been playing Animal Crossing all wrong to this point. It's not about expanding and decorating a house, it's not about collecting unique specimens for Blathers' museum, or filling an island with things to see and do.

It's about fashion.

I received an invite from @thatonegm giving me about an hours' notice.

You are cordially invited to the West Windfall Fashion Show at 8:00 pm EST (in ~50 minutes). Windfall will be open to friends. Bring your fanciest, silliest, comfiest outfits and show them off!

I quickly ran to my house and whipped up some outfits for my fish wand, gathered up some hosting gifts, and made it to the airport just in time.

Our gracious host had not only prepared an amazing stage and audience space, but also welcome gifts and gifts for participation!

Here are some snaps I took of the show.

Afterwards, I took a trip to see the sights of the island. There were amazing things to see!

The gnome vignettes were truly inspired. Gnomes painting gnome paintings, gnomes at a picnic, gnomes prognomesticating, and more!

Found a cool performance venue but the line for the restroom was killer.

Thanks so much to thatonegm for his abundant hospitality and for such a well organized event!

Somehow, a bar has been raised! Perhaps there is no limit to the heights one can achieve in Animal Crossing: New Horizons??

My friend and #ACNH fashion model @schmarty wrote a blog about the fun fashion show we did last night! It's charming (and flattering), and he also grabbed additional pictures from the catwalk, for those who want to see more.…
