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??

The temporary museum now has an oarfish

After seeing several friends' islands seemingly littered with oarfish. Amy (Bea) spent days hunting these once-thought-to-be-common sea critters.

There were none to be found on the isle of temporary, so she took to the skies. Once, twice, three times?? Who can keep track.

At last she landed on an island with no river, where...

She caught two oarfish in a row!

An oarfish is now on display at the museum on temporary.

Truly this our household's greatest achievement for May 2020.

πŸ”– Bookmarked Exploring Grief in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

“During a time when we are unable to attend funerals or memorials for our loved ones and when we are unable to console each other in person, it’s comforting to have the means to do so through the soft and slow gameplay of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”

We are taking Animal Crossing pretty seriously here. Please enjoy this daily checklist that Amy made in PDF form or the source SVG on GitHub

Finally took a trip to Rancho Island

Nook's Cranny will be open in the morning.

This is fine.
