Let the Fireworks Begin!

Wow!  Two entries in like, two days!  I’m spoiling you guys now.  😛

Last night was the first of several Fireworks Shows that will occur this August!  Every Sunday this month, at 7pm, we will be treated to sparklers and roman candles all day (courtesy of Tortimer) and a fireworks display at night.  Huzzah!

To set the season off right, I had a little get-together in Shaolin.  My new friends Hayley from Minicity and Marissa from Arcadia (check out the Daily Arcadia blog!) visited Shaolin to celebrate summer.

Toasted Tortimer

First I showed them how we like to party, Shaolin-style!  You like your tortoise well done, right?  LOL xP

We tried to pose at the Old North Bridge to do a Photo-Op with the Fireworks.  I managed to get this photo taken right before a surprise guest arrived!

Fireworks Photo Op!

Yup, my friend Jesse from Tomutomu waltzed into Shaolin to join in the fun.  He couldn’t stay long (hence no photo – oopsies!) but thanks for stopping by Jesse, aka Zimio!  lol  After that, we made our way to Marissa’s town, Arcadia, which I had read much about but never actually visited before!

Visiting Arcadia

We had a lot of fun hanging out, cataloging DLC and sharing shirt patterns.  We also stopped by Hayley’s town Minicity, where an extensive road system has been implemented!  Thanks for hanging out Marissa and Hayley!  Let’s do it again soon!

My goal is to have more Fireworks parties, like I did last summer!  It’s a lot of fun!  I’ll try to give you guys more advance notice before the next WiFi Party!  xD

In other news, the newest seasonal items have been stocked in GracieGrace.  I noticed a new costume/outfit was on display in the store as well.  It was a cat costume, which is something I don’t remember seeing prominently on display in this ritzy shop before.

Cat Costume

Was this costume on display last year, and I’m just not remembering?  I was very surprised to see it, usually I only see the boring Gracie outfit on display in the shop.  Anyway, this season brings the uber cute yet SUPER expensive Sweets Series.  And in honor of this ever-popular furniture set, Nintendo of Europe has released new EU DLC!

EU DLC - Sweets Player

Sorry for the itty-bitty pic.  That’s all they have on the NOE site.  I will take a better picture when I actually receive my own copy of this new DLC!  (Hopefully soon!  lol)  It’s a music player that looks like some kind of edible yummies.  This EU DLC will be sent out 8/2 – 8/15.  I can’t tell from this pic what the heck it’s supposed to be.  Looks kinda like a cupcake?  Or a bon-bon?  I dunno!  We shall see!  And while we’re on the topic of sweet foods, our friends in South Korea have yet another yummy looking DLC on the way!

KR DLC - Ice Cream Sundae?

Again, I don’t speak or read Korean (I can barely read Japanese.  One language at a time, peoples!) so I don’t know what the details are for this KR DLC.  But the picture certainly leads me to believe that the DLC is an Ice Cream Sundae.  And it looks damn good.  I can’t wait to get one!  Yet another yummy DLC from South Korea!  They sure love their noms!  lol  This KR DLC will be distributed 8/9 – 8/15 so I will try to get my hands on it soon.  I hope it doesn’t melt!  (Lame joke.  I know.)

That’s about it for Animal Crossing news right now!  Keep checking back at the Shaolin Town Blog to find out when the next Fireworks WIFI Party will be!  Hope to see ya there!

      I thought it was so weird! Also, it’s interesting to note that the Cat Costume apparently requires the red nose to be complete. Why else would Gracie have put it on display with the rest of the cat outfit? 😛

  1. Your fireworks party looks like it was a great success. I doubt I’ll be back home next Sunday, but maybe I can join in the fun in a few weeks. The new slc looks adorable! Jealous!

      I hope you can make it before August is over. Is Vella going to be having a birthday party? lol xD

      I’ll be sure to get extra DLC so I can send some to ya!

      P.S. I have Aspberger’s syndrome, and I feel this shunning pretty much a good amount of time…I wasn’t begging. I have the tendency of repeating myself if I cannot get a point across the first time. And I would like to say for the record, I take interest in these things and hope to get myself involved in them as well.

        I’m sorry to hear that you have this condition. But that doesn’t justify the angry ranting reply comments you posted today. Even if you have problems communicating with others, you still need to keep in mind the rules of netiquette, otherwise you might continue to find yourself alienated. I’m sorry but my friends list was already full and you can probably tell that I haven’t played in a while since I haven’t blogged… so I will not be adding you to my friends list at this time.

        You know, I am understanding when it comes to having a friend roster full. There are multiple friends people can have, but there is always a limit…but anyways…I hope you will eventually add me soon…

    Um…gluxbox? I must say, you don’t check comments often. And my info is in the Town Rules section of this blog.

      Look, Jay… I don’t mean to be harsh, but your comments are REALLY annoying and I will not be adding you to my friends list. Nobody likes a beggar who is constantly asking you to give them stuff. I’m sick of it. You can comment on my blog if you are actually referring to stuff I’ve blogged about. But if you’re just gonna spam my comments with your friend code and begging me to give you things, then just please stop. I’m going to delete all your comments now… that is, if I can track them all down. You really spammed the crap out of my blog and I really don’t appreciate it.

      1. Yeah, Jay. I’m sorry, but you’ve been posting on my blog so much asking about patterns. You basically used me just to get to Glux. I’m kind of irritated by it.
