Hey, Gamers! I know it’s the middle of November, but I wanted to take some time to reflect on my first Animal Crossing Halloween. Growing up, I always wanted Animal Crossing. I can’t remember much of wanting it to be honest, but my mother insists that I very much wanted it almost every Christmas, and each time it was sold out everywhere. It gets worse because my birthday is on the 26th of November, which is super close to Christmas and it’s when everyone starts panic buying. But nonetheless, because of the whole it being sold out thing, I never got it. Josh had animal crossing, but he’s very… uh… protective? Obsessive? Tyrannical? Yeah, that’s probably the right word. It’s no fun playing on Josh’s Animal Crossing because he’s just there watching every move you make. His brother once planted a tree and it meant a lot to him that he made his mark on the town… Josh chopped it down and made his brother cry. So, having a less controlled Animal Crossing meant that I finally got to meet Jack! We got Animal Crossing for an alter of mine for ‘second Christmas’ (it’s a huge trauma day for me and usually we have a bit more money to spend after Christmas so we have a more relaxed Second Christmas every year so I can actually enjoy it without stressing and we can get each other the actual gifts we wanted to). That was in January 2021, so this was the first chance we got. We’re witnessing all the seasons change, and it’s lovely. I feel like I’m going on a tangent so uh, let’s just get on with it!
Candy. You have no idea how stressed I was about having enough candy for all the villagers. I didn’t want any of them to feel left out, but I’m also not the type to go on the game every day… or at least, go on the game when the shop is open. I really made a point of trying to get up early just to go on it. Sometimes I got distracted, so I only ended up having 14 candies. I wanted to be able to give one to my real-life friend (although I am still yet to do that…) too, so I was happy. I gave my candy away and took it back over and over again. It was funny.
As for costumes… I’ve never been big on changing clothes. I have about 5-6 outfits that I wear in Animal Crossing, and that’s about it. But I was so excited when I realised that I could cosplay as Futaba for Halloween.
The villagers were less excited. They refused to give me candy, so I tried a goth dress and they still refused… so I decided to play a little trick on them.
Dressing up as Jack made me so happy. I laughed my butt off, to be honest. The villagers’ reactions really tickled me. Josh was sat there looking at me like I was a maniac while I was trying to explain to him while laugh-crying that I dressed up as Jack and the villagers couldn’t tell it was me at first. I probably laughed way more than I should have because my whole body ached the next day from laughing so much.
I think that’s it for this post, Gamers! I just wanted to share what I got up to on my first AC Halloween. What did you guys get up to? Did you trick any of your villagers?
