This is an archived post of mine I originally published on my old blog in 2015. Any posts from that blog are long gone at this point but I really can’t bring myself to delete this one so enjoy!
It’s that time of the year again! Time to dress up, dance off the winter cold and experience the sensation that is Pavé. Want the occasion to be a hit? Then be sure to follow these 5 easy steps to success. ¡Viva Festivale!
You will need:
- A heaped tablespoon of patience
- To mute the day-long peppy music of death
5 cups10 cups of spare time
- And the strength to hold in your tears
That really is all there is to it! With just a few easy steps you, too, can have the perfect Festivale. Are you excited? I certainly am
Step 1 – Prep work
This is it, your journey is about to begin. First things first, dress for the occasion. Be the occasion.
I’ve never really liked the standard Festivale outfits on sale in The Able Sisters’ so I decided to throw together all of the colourful clothing in my catalog. The result was… Bright, and I think I channeled my inner egg rather than Festivale.
Step 2 – A royal presence (+ shouting)
This is the hardest part – it’ll be smooth sailing from here on out! Prepare for plenty of shouty font, fanfare and casual insults to your appearance and overall personality. Don’t you just love this event already?!
Step 3 – Do as the stranger tells you
I lied; the last part was actually the easiest.
“He wants feathers? Sounds simple enough; this town’s full of chickens.” WRONG. This entire event is made so much more difficult because catching/trading/winning 3 of the same coloured feathers can take 5 minutes, alone, and Pavé will take it upon himself to hand out duplicate rewards as he pleases. For example, I now have 4 Pavé sofas sitting on my plaza. Great. Well… We might as well get this over with.
Step 4 – Observe how much you look like an egg
Step 5 – Waste a further two hours of your life in search of the Pavé wallpaper
I honestly wish I was kidding.
Step 6 – Cry
I mean, who needs the dumb wallpaper anyway?
Me. I need it.
And there you have it! The best case scenario for Festivale!
