And Let the Scaring Fun Begin!

It's that time of year again in SL, with the ghost and ghouls roaming, witches and zombies playing, and the vampires are feeling comfy coming out of their crypts.  It's Halloween this month and there is some amazing things to see and experience on the grid!  I do have to admit that I am biased, it is one of my favorite times and I do love the mood on some of the sims.  People are having a wonderful time decorating, or hunting, or dancing in the wildest costumes.  Halloween seems to transport many of us back to the days, where life was to be taken in a lighter mood and smiles were much easier to come by.  So on that note, I have a few pictures this time around that I snapped as I wandered around and enjoyed some of the decorations.

Pumpkin Town

 The first place is Pumpkin Town, where you can shop, dance and they are doing a hunt presently, for the season.  Some amazing decorations were here and I loved looking around and poking my head in the pumpkin shaped stores they had.

Haunted Coal Mine
The next stop was the Haunted Coal Mine, where you can be lowered into the ground and take a ride in the coal mine, to be surprised at different corners by a variety of ghosts and ghouls. 

Halloween @ Old Europe Village
Halloween @ Old Europe Village
Old Europe Village is not only for Halloween but, just beautifully picturesque.  You get the atmosphere of Halloween here, while you enjoy taking a nice walk through the village or going for a nice slow dance with that special someone. 

Halloween by Pondlife
What is Halloween, without Pondlife giving you a big hand in decorating and getting your place ready for all those Trick-or-Treaters that will soon be arriving?!  An amazing amount of choices and ideas can be found here, from some very colourful pumpkins, to animated spiders to walk around and startling your little monsters, all at super reasonable prices.

Adoption Agency Halloween Haunts
What is Halloween without the scary stories though?  Well, over at Adoption Agency Halloween Haunts you can sit and enjoy a story, that will be told each day.  Sponsored by CPS (Child Protective Services) and [Next Gen Inc.] Adoption Agency. All this month there will be scary story reading in the spirit of Halloween. Readings will be conducted at [Next Gen Inc.] Haunted House.

Village of Nyght
 If you are a fan of Edgar Allan Poe and/or J.P. Lovecraft, then a visit to the Village of Nyght should be a must for your Halloween fun!  Wonderfully done and spooky, it has a castle for each of these authors, for you to wander around in and explore.

Innsmouth Village
A hauntingly spooky sim, Innsmouth Village is heavily influenced by J.P. Lovecraft.  A walk through this village will definitely get you in the mood for the season and give you a few shivers to enjoy.

DarkDharma Haunted Manor
To help complete the season, you really do have to take a little stroll through DarkDharma Haunted Manor.  The fog, the strolling ghost and tons of visitors make it worth the experience.

Bentham Manor
Bentham Cemetery
Over at Bentham Manor you can stroll through this amazingly haunted sim and enjoy the sites.  Many of the decorations here can also be purchased, so if you fall in love with the psychotic Alice in Wonderland; for example, you can take her home to meet Mom and liven up your own house with her.
