Most Beloved Item
 
Everyone has one of these, whether or not it was something they quested for, just liked it, a gift from someone, or whatever reason. It could be a rare item or even a common whatever it is doesnt matter at all, since the reason for it being your favorite isnt because of its value right? At least not its cost value i hope @.@;

I always like to find out the origins of why people like certain items of theirs so much, on gaia theres alot to choose from too ^^
So, out of your inventories which of the items in there surpass them all? Which is your most beloved item?

For me i would have to say its the Angelic Minis, for a few reasons.
I always wanted that item since it was the month i joined and i wanted it as a memory of when i joined.
It was cute and the first wing like donation item that had came out at the time.
I was questing it but it always seemed so out of my reach, like when i quested the sash i believe i bought it for 20k but at the time it seemed still hard.
Lastly the best reason of all, my best friend let me borrow the item long ago and after time went by i think it was evident he didnt mean it for borrow but infact he Gave them to me. I'll never forget that really, during the time when i was questing them i asked if i could try them on he said it looked nice on me so he let me keep them. Orignally i thought it was just borrowing but the past times he came around he would always ask if i was taking care of them. ^^ My quest for that cute little item was shortened and even though i never fully was able to obtain it on my own, i am still grateful that happened since if he didnt i probably would never have had that item to begin with.

Anyways, what are your stories? ^^

Psst Rydia, joo luff your chickies right? >>

YES MY BABIES! ;O;

I quested for like...half a year? And I didn't wear shoes the whole time as a stupid gimmick lol. Made a lot of friends and got nice donations. Good times. ._.

But I love my minis set too, I wear them more...they go with everything! SO CUTE. AND MINI.

My most beloved item is the Devil Tail. It holds most memories to me, aswell.
When I joined and discovered all about the available items, the Devil Tail was a must-have for me. However, being new, the near 50k that it was worth was rather a challenge to make.
Later on, I had a friend to help me, even though he didn't have a lot of gold either. I reached 48k, and luckily found a seller willing to part with it for that much. ^^

I love my headphones. Worth doesn't matter so much as the fact I enjoy wearing them. I generally like how they look and work outfits around them more often than not. I do believe that part of the reason I enjoy them so is my general love for music to begin with. I couldn't imagine going through my days without my usual string of songs playing in the background. I'll admit I don't have an epic quest stories, hard work, or anything like that to back it. I'm older than gambino so how I got things can most be said as 'bought it that month.'

I think the only real thing I dislike about my DJ's is the annoying attention they can draw. Pixels shouldn't get that sort of attention.

HopeSama 07-11-2008 04:15 AM

yeah i understand that, most of the older items draw way too much attention, especially that angelic halo and most of the 03 items, but its nice to hear the stories behind why people wear the items they do ^^ we all grow attached to something just a little.

Yeah Rydia i remember lol, i was surprised when i saw you with the chickies and pretty much all your outfits look nice in them. I actually regret not questing for bunnies but right now its like Waaayyy too hard to even try since the price for the damn things went up to impossible reaches for me >>; just like the red rose corsage. And yes the minis <3

thats nice you and a friend worked together to get it Luna, im sure the end result of being able to obtain it was nice ^^

lol its all good Raja, even if you dont have a big epic story doesnt mean you cant like something just because you like it xD

Ahaha I hear you. I had a Grizzly hat quest in early 04, I forget why I didn't stick with it... but I really should have. If only we knew what we know now. ._.;

And yeah, its weird when people like you just because of the items you have. It makes it hard for you to know who's genuinely interested in your friendship and who is just hoping for a free item. In my experiences most turn out to be the latter... -_-

I pretty much am fond of all my Vash the Stampede cosplay stuff. :O

If only Gaia would add a silver revolver item, I'd be set.

There is one at Prize and Joy? x_x;

T_T

I need to pay more attention.

Fuzzy 07-13-2008 10:26 PM

My sister has like nothing really good from before '06, even though she was with it from the start.

I had a look, got it, got bored, quit, gave my account to my sister.

Joey 07-13-2008 10:43 PM

It's really alot more than just forums though... The fishing system is a huge part of the game now, and they're coming out with a battle arena... :O

Rippedshadow 07-23-2008 06:02 AM

Erm, first MC was a flame sword. You'd rarely see me (If you've ever seen me) without it on. I got it for 12k when I first started, and it was my first quested item. :o

Anasurae 08-20-2008 02:13 AM

My Kiki.

It was a gift from a very special friend.

Aspio 08-20-2008 02:33 AM

My Fire and Ice Gauntlets.

I worked damn hard to get them. (though I don't really equip them often :swt:)

MireilleNu 09-07-2008 12:17 PM

I have a few...

My Kitty ears- My first quested item. Everyone told me it would take a few weeks, but with a little bit of luck on my first day (like a NM headband I sold to Ian... ::faceplant:: . _.;; ) I got them, doll ears, snowboard pants, a complex jacket, and some shoes all within 3 days of joining.

OMG Hat- Got another NM headband in a box like... 2 weeks later. I sold it for 25, the highest one had sold for at the time to nab me an OMG at 30k. :py63:

Angelic Sash- I wasn't as luck with this one. It started out as a Fairy wings quest, but then I decided to go for a sash before they inflated. At the begining of my quest they where selling for 150-200k. At the END of my quest, they where 3 mill. I had tons of help from my friends, but I'm happy I didn't know how long it would actually take to finish. :py56:

Fairy Wings- As I mentioned in the sash section, I was originally questing for fairy wings. Well as a Christmas surprise, my boyfriend bought me a pair of wings by fishing his little heart out for like a month. ; _ ; He's never been very good at getting gold, so I was extremely proud of him.

Rusty 09-13-2008 11:01 PM

I'd probably say...Golden Laurels.

Perfect golden item for your head.

I'm fond of black/gold looks, but theres not many good golden items, and its hard to work them in with black clothing and other such stuff.

Coming up with a good avatar is hard.

I'm also fond of expensive items.

Penguin slippers, Ninja Headband, nitemare scarf, anything expensive that I've once had.

I remember getting a NiteMare Scarf when they were like, 15k or something.

Someone gave me nitemare headband for free too, when they were like 20k.

Then I got hacked.
