Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer DLC Thread: October Competition
One of Nintendo's desperate attempts to sell more amiibo, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, released a few months ago. With the Crossing Guardian having been officially retired, I'm going to be maintaining an active list of DLC for the game every now and then, in the hopes that those of you who have the game do not miss out on content related to it out of apathy.
Downloadable content in Happy Home Designer comes in two forms. One of them is "Challenges", which are sets of two large items available during the first 14 days of each month and obtainable by participating in the Happy Home Challenge from the tablet in Nook's store. These don't have any character associated with them, other than perhaps Nook himself, and are never required for any purpose. The other is "Characters", which introduce a number of new or returning characters to the series that provide entire sets of special items. I will be listing both, as well as any items that I can say with confidence that they exclusively provide.
To access challenges, log in to the Happy Home Network computer on Lottie's desk and select "Challenge". King Nook will force you to complete a house for him, giving you two massive items in the process. You don't have to use these items in the challenge. Items will be permanently unlocked upon completing the challenge. These challenges have the same availability dates in all regions. If you miss the DLC, you can obtain it by using amiibo cards previously used by someone who has it.
Challenge 1: The sweetest home ever (Oct. 1 - Oct. 14) Massive Cake Candy House (also in C11) Challenge 2: A battle between giants (Nov. 1 - Nov. 14) Robot Hero (also in C13) Inflatable Resetti Challenge 3: A culinary contest (Dec. 1 - Dec. 14) Giant Stewpot (also in C9) Large Egg Challenge 4: An attack of the invaders (Jan. 1 - Jan. 14) Giant Ant UFO (also in C10) Challenge 5: A celebrity lifestyle (Feb. 1 - Feb. 14) Mountain of Bills Luxury Car Challenge 6: A seascape on the horizon (Mar. 1 - Mar. 14) Submarine Iceberg (also in C12) Challenge 7: A land of fairy tales (Apr. 1 - Apr. 14) Carriage Spinning Tea Cups Challenge 8: The grand outdoors (May 1 - May 14) Tent (also in C11) Mountain Challenge 9: A feast for a bear (June 1 - June 14) Giant Stewpot (also in C3) Giant Teddy Bear Challenge 10: The journey home (July 1 - July 14) Propeller Plane UFO (also in C4) Challenge 11: A comfy, cozy lifestyle (Aug. 1 - Aug. 14) Candy house (also in C1) Tent (also in C8) Challenge 12: A harsh habitat (Sep. 1 - Sep. 14) Iceberg (also in C6) The Sun Challenge 13: A robot control room (Oct. 1 - Oct. 14) Monitor Tower Robot Hero (also in C2)
To access special characters, consult the blue 3DS on the second floor of Nook's Homes. These are only available for a limited time, and furthermore, Nintendo of America in particular is rather vague about when these items are available, so a rigorous schedule is likely not possible. Please consult later posts in the thread for the most up-to-date details on character availability. If you miss the DLC, you can obtain the furniture by using amiibo cards from someone who has it, but the characters cannot be accessed unless their own amiibo cards are given out. Louie's items, except his pic, can also be obtained through normal gameplay; the rest are all exclusive.

Which... has already happened, so let's move the goalposts to 'until the game has developed such levels of apathy that I forget to continue updating it. So probably March or so.
