animal crossing

my animal crossing villagers

I have ten of them, they’re all amazing, and even though I COULD trade them in for other, possibly even cuter villagers I… will absolutely never do that. In alphabetical order:

Cherry

Apparently Cherry is one of the most popular villagers across all the game! That’s nice. She’s like a goth-punk dog but her home is super brightly coloured which clashes with all the Halloween-themed stuff I keep giving her, ah well, you do you Cherry

Clyde

Poor Clyde on the other hand is supposed to be one of the LEAST popular villagers but I don’t care. Is it because of his eyes not having pupils? Bah. I love Clyde, he keeps running airplane-style around the island like a small child. Also he’s very adamant about not eating people, always good

Deli

Deli is obviously A monkey but I dunno what kind he is? He’s SO CUTE and honestly he’s my favourite, don’t tell the others. Look at that adorable little smile

Lucha

Lucha is a little wrestler bird with a house done up like a wrestling ring! HOW DOES HE WRESTLE WITH NO ARMS?

Nan

A goat (a nanny goat?) who wears cute dresses. She’s one of my faves too just cos she’s so sweet. Before learning you can stop villagers from leaving I did a whole photoshoot to remember her by and then she didn’t leave, hooray

O’Hare

A hare, of course, apparently one who thinks he’s a famous influencer. His house is island-themed, meaning he built an island ON an island, ICONIC

Papi

Okay Papi is another one of the favourites. Look at him, he’s ADORABLE. He’s an okapi as far as I know, which are endangered in real life, sigh

Patty

Patty is a cow! And her default dress looks like meat steaks, oh dear. VERY cute, sings a lot, and is super into a movie called Maglevs in Love. I feel I should question more why she has imitation cow skulls

Tipper

Yes I have two cows! The other one is called Tipper, presumably because of cow-tipping, which is a thing you very much shouldn’t do. She’s supposed to be a “snooty” villager but she’s not snooty to ME

Tybalt

Tybalt was one of the first villagers on the island I think! He’s very very into sports and fitness, and I am not (as proven by the fact I’ve spent an entire year playing Animal Crossing) but I love him anyway

New Year via games

Obviously there was nowhere to go on New Year’s Eve so I basically spent it on Animal Crossing. Awww, the little villagers threw a party.

Animal Crossing meant a lot to us this year, so I wanted to get a nice photo of me and my husband in the game as the countdown finished and the fireworks went off. So I got us in cute poses and hit the button at JUST the right moment… and the screenshot gallery was full. No photo for you. I cracked the hell up because WHAT BETTER WAY to sum up 2020 than that. Oh well, I took a photo on my phone instead, which has more sentiment in many ways I suppose.

Also Deli wasn’t there and he’s my favourite. :(

I had a quick whirl on Pokemon to get the New Year ones as well. That was more successful, in that I was able to get 2020 Slowpoke (aww) and evolve him within a couple of hours.

And a Pikachu with yet another hat!

Anyway, those were a fun distraction. Now back to the crushing terror of living in the UK under a corrupt government in the middle of a pandemic.
