Halloween Time In Second Life

It’s Halloween time and there are plenty of places in second life to celebrate! First off we will be having a costume contest starting today at 6:36pm. Instead of me listing all the haunted houses I found like last year, I found a really good post listing the best! Check out Elfie’s Second Life Haunted Houses Post for plenty of information on these great places.

I personally liked Autumn Hollow and Octoberville which have the best mystery type games. The story from both of those places are fantastic and really gets you into the mystery finding objects around the sim. If you can’t go to all the haunted places in SL you really should try these out! You can also win prizes. The maze for Autumn Hollow is better this year too! I’ll probably write my own reviews later after I visited all these places.

Shopping in Second Life for Halloween stuff

Here are some places which have great Halloween costumes and avatars for you to try! I’ll be adding more if I find some good places.

  1. SiniStyle [SiniStyle at 56, 240, 24 (slurl)] – I love the different costumes at this store. Very gory and scary which will scare anybody I am sure! This store is even better this year now with lot of fun areas to fit in with Halloween!
  2. [Costume Depo at 31, 114, 131 (slurl)] – Plenty of costumes for you try and wear for your Halloween parties!
  3. B dazzled Island – Nice costumes for the ladies and some extra Halloween items to buy for your own sim!
  4. Liquid Heat Halloween Sim – This place has a great Halloween ride but also has a store with some great stuff to buy. A must visit for costumes and for objects you want for your own sim!

Halloween Fun Part 3

I recently wrote about some Halloween fun places and things to do in Second life. I found a lot more to add to the previous posts , part 1, and part 2, so I thought I would write a part 3. First Send an IM to “Trickortreat Linden” and get a Halloween goody bag! Probably will only work for Halloween day so be quick! The following list of places are the ones I found with Halloween houses or mazes. Have fun!

  • Haunted Castle Maze – Solve riddles and puzzles to get through this haunted maze! Outstanding work for this project. I really enjoyed this place and hope more of this kind of stuff can be made in this world.
  • Octoberville – This looks like the place to be today. explore the whole sim with Halloween scenery and haunted houses! There’s a train ride somewhere but couldn’t find it. Also talk about a creepy catacomb but couldn’t find it. There is also a scavenger hunt to participate in!
  • SL Ghost Hill – You need to pay to play in this haunted house. It costs $50 for a 24 hour period. It’s a fun time to spend your Halloween if you are willing to pay.
  • Haunted Hill – One of the better places to visit for Halloween. You can interact with the objects around you and the scenery is great! I was hung, electrocuted, grounded up into pieces, cut in half with my guts hanging out and spent time in a padded room.
  • The Haunted 2006 – A walk through house with great sound effects and floating ghosts all around. Walk through the bookcases! This was fun for me because of the scenery and stuff jumping out at you with awesome scary sound effects. I jumped once.
  • Halloween House on Gilligan’s Island – Lots of blood everywhere! not for the squeamish! Love the scenery and how everything was put together. Look for the “exit here” signs to go to the next rooms.
  • Haunted House Elevator – This was a fun place to explore. Read the note first before entering the elevator. Be ready for some fun scares and a fun maze!
  • Jansen Haunted Mansion – 3 stories of decorations but mostly just scenery. You can get electrocuted in one room.
  • Bates Motel – A reconstruction of the bates motel from the “Psycho” movie. Mostly just scenery and you can walk in the bathroom to see a bloody scene.
  • Vixens Isle – Walk through the house with creepy scenery and sounds around you!
  • Haunted House – Packed full of scary stuff for Halloween. Walk up the stairs to get more scares at this place!
  • Merlin’s Lair – Fun place to explore but those doors need some oil.

If you know of any other places or visited any of these and like to review it then leave a comment about it! HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Now for me to go have some fun!

Halloween Fun!

Halloween season is my favorite time of the year because I love being scared! I watch scary movies and go to some Halloween mazes with my friend as you can read about it on my personal blog here. But I wanted to post about my Halloween time in second life. Yes there are many places and events to visit during this season in second life. I have found haunted houses, haunted rides and Halloween costumes. Lot of places to explore and not enough time or space to write about all of them in detail.

The first thing I wanted to do was find something cheap to wear for Halloween. I found some freebie shirts and other items to wear. Nothing that really was shocking. So I decided I would have to pay for a good costume. Once I started to look I found a lot but the majority of stuff was for women. Sometimes it gets frustrating to find anything to wear for guys in SL. Well I had to do more searching and visited this one store which had some great looking clothes and avatars. I wasn’t looking for an avatar. I wanted something to wear that looked bloody. I found a couple of great places for some good priced costumes.

Here is a part of my costume that I found:

I love to dress up for Halloween in Second Life
Bloody costume for Halloween in Second LifeBloody legs in Second Life for Halloween to attend parties!

Here are some slurl’s to the costume places I found:

Sinistyle Design [ SiniStyle (148, 90, 37) ] – Nice gory costumes the way I like them. I bought mine from here.
Costume Superstore – Very good store with lots of stuff to check out. Bought my spooky eyes here.
Addi’s House of Halloween Horrors – some fun items for Halloween.
City of the DEAD – many stores around the area including a big giant gothic store.
Dark Decorum – Many fun Halloween items.
Twistted Dreams – Some more fun Halloween items.
Neverwhere Halloween store [ Neverwhere (91, 91, 26) ] – Some more decorations and costumes.

If you know of any other places to get Halloween costumes then feel free to leave a comment! I’m going to keep searching for some good deals and other scary stuff in second life!
