The BVpocalypse

Well, I just listed EVERYTHING that came back to Pawlette and BVO on BRD, so go read this topic: http://bearvillerainydays.forumotion.com/t473-very-important-massively-derared-items

The highlights…

  • Nerdy Glasses
  • Letterman Jacket
  • Sequin Fairy Dress (;-;)
  • Fuzzy Clogs

My thoughts…
Well, I can’t say I care about most of this stuff coming back. The only thing I’m really mad about being derared is sequin fairy. I was going to try collecting it and now it’ll end up like EFT did where nobody wears it because it’s a noob item. If Satin Holiday Dresses don’t come back then I’ll be collecting those instead.

Bunny is back to being the main pair of glasses everyone wants after a year of playing second fiddle to nerdy (sorry, Princess, people don’t seem to want sweep). For some reason moose and buffalo didn’t come back, which makes me think that (assuming this is a glitch like people seem to think it is) they were meant to be brought back. Let’s hope this isn’t the same with HPTs, which also mysteriously avoided being brought back. Which makes you wonder if the HPTs or someone who likes them struck a deal with whoever decides which items go in stores.

Overall this doesn’t affect me (or two of my best friends) very much at all. 😛

The 12 Days of BVWP

I came up with this a few weeks ago and I’m finally putting it on my blog because it’s closer to December now and I’ve told a bunch of people about this. This is sung to the tune of the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”, in case that wasn’t obvious. See if you can guess who’s referenced in each line! 😉

Under a Read More because this is long. 😛

Why Princess Loves BRD…

This weekend, Bearville Rainy Days had a contest asking members to share why they loved BRD, and I’m happy to announce that the grand prizewinner was Princess! 🙂

Princess won a raspberry HPT for her entry, which the judges both thought was amazingly written! Here it is:

“I love BRD for many reasons, the one of the most important being the fact that it has allowed me to grow. I used to be a real dunce at trading, and I guess I still am now, but certainly not as much. Everyone here, especially the well-versed TPs have helped me in my journey to rarity. I guess my English has, in a way, improved as well. I used colloquial speech much too often when I first joined. But because I joined a forum, I began to feel self-conscious and didn’t want to end up a laughingstock, so I felt an urge to change the way I typed. And I did.

Another reason I love BRD is because I actually have responsibilities. Being a moderator, I have to make sure the forum doesn’t go all drama like BVC and other BV forums. In the eleven months I’ve been here, I’ve already been promoted three times – one of the greatest achievements of my life. I get this proud, tingly feeling every time I lock a topic. Just knowing that the admins trust me enough to make me a moderator makes me feel honoured.

Lastly, the most significant reason I love BRD is because I’ve made many new friends. Some of the members on the forum make much better listeners than other people I know IRL. They’ve always been there for me. Whenever I’m whining about something, or seeking advice – they never turn down the opportunity to listen to my rambling. I know I have flaws, and I appreciate that everyone here accepts me despite that fact.”

Please stay tuned for more contests on BRD! Our posting contest is also nearing its end date – help us get to 25,000 posts before the end of November!

Throwback Sunday

So I said I’d be doing one of these in my November update post, and here it is. The reason I picked today to do it is because I email my BV pictures to myself instead of keeping them saved on my computer so they don’t take up a ton of space in a folder and I can still have them in one place, and today marks two years since I started doing that. Even though I’m including pictures I took before then. 😆

So here’s the first-ever BV picture I took…
Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 3.22.01 AM
This is from January 2011. I took this zoomed in to 100% and not in my inventory and used Preview of all things to remove the background. Yay for sucky graphic editing skills. 😆 And yes, I had bunny back then. I actually got my first pair in early 2010. Besides bunny, I’m wearing…

  • Large Purple Tiara – PSI (from the Adoring Amethyst Teddy)
  • Rainbow Shirt – PSI (from the Summer Hugs Bear)
  • Striped Girl Elf Set Skirt – old BVO (Christmas 2010)
  • Leggings – Pawlette (350 BB)
  • Super Hero Boots – quest/giveaway (Halloween 2010)

My hair in this picture, in case you can’t tell, is the salon hair where you get to pick the highlights. 😛

Here’s the next BV outfit picture I took…
Picture 4
This is from July 2012. As you can tell, I wasn’t very used to taking screencaps, so I nearly cut off my bear and half of my outfit here. (And in another picture I took of this outfit, I did cut off my bear – and my head!) I’m wearing…

  • Striped Girl Elf Set Hat – old BVO (Christmas 2010)
  • Bunny Glasses – PSI (from the Springtime Fun Bunny)
  • Bearville Jersey – giveaway (Camp Happy Heart 2012)
  • Flower Jeans – BVO (1 credit)
  • Furry Feet – PSI (from the Cuddly Lamb)
  • Rainbow Bag – fountain item/Chloe giveaway
  • Flower Wrist Corsage – Store Fur All Seasons (Valentine’s Day 2012)
  • DS Game Console – code from the Hugsville game

Note that I won’t mention any items from this list again in any of the following outfit lists. 😛 I looked pretty different from how I do now, didn’t I? I was obsessed with those pants… IDK why… -_-

Here’s my next outfit, which was from November 16, 2012, and is the reason I’m doing this post! 😛
Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 3.49.48 PM
See, now I’m starting to look a little bit more like how I do now. Except not really at all. I hope you like the blue hair, because that’s what you’ll be seeing for the next few outfits. 😆 I’m wearing…

  • Happy Meal Hat – McDonald’s bear (February 2012, and no, it’s not a full-sized bear)
  • Polka Dot Belted Outfit – old BVO (2008)
  • Pirate Pants – Halloween Pawlette
  • Bow Gloves – old Pawlette
  • Sequin Scarf – old Pawlette
  • Five Golden Rings – quest/giveaway (Christmas 2008)

Thankfully I had gotten used to taking screencaps by this point and no longer took pictures that had half of my character cut off. 😆

EDIT 11/17/14: CRAPPITY CRAP CRAP CRAP I forgot to publish this yesterday. My bad. I guess you could consider this a Part 1. I’ll have more of my old outfit pictures up here soon. 😛

The Other Side

…of the trade.

What trade, you ask?

Well, if you’ve read Princess’ most recent post where she says about trading (http://bearvilleismykryptonite.wordpress.com/2014/11/12/45/) then you’ll know what I’m talking about. If not, then I traded Princess a winter snowflake sweater (an item she really wanted) for this tank top:

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 10.38.43 AM

I’ve actually worn this outfit a few times, but I just wanted to take a picture so you guys could see it. The skirt was a birthday gift from Casey, by the way – I love it! ❤

Also, I’ve reached 3,000 views. Yay! 😛

I guess that’s all for now, but I’ll have a longer post up in a few days, so keep checking your readers! 😉

If you have the blog Bearville Gallery on your blogroll, please change it to Bearville Angel, since Katie has changed her blog name and URL. Her new URL is http://bearvilleangel.wordpress.com and her blog name is, you guessed it, Bearville Angel. If you’re a BVWPer and haven’t followed Katie yet, now’s your chance!

Thank you for reading this message.

BVWP Community Update

So if anyone hasn’t checked the BVWP Community page in a while, some new blogs were added last week, and I changed a few of the graphics around since people requested new pictures. 🙂 I didn’t update some graphics because I don’t think certain people want their graphics to include them with a candle on their head (hi Katie) or in PJs.

If you want your graphic to be changed, make sure you’re wearing the outfit you want to have on in the graphic so I can take the screencap in your zone. 😉
