Here we go! The last of the Silly Scents, I'm pretty sure this one smelled like Pumpkins. And, because its my list and I CAN, I changed next weeks from a black to a pink/purple. Why? I didn't feel like trying to find a black that was different then that OTHER black.

This post got out late as I didn't get the location landmarks till Tuesday night. Steel head does a Spooky house contest and I wanted to show off Steelhead and the creativity of its residents. Mind you two of the locations are mine. There are nine locations in the tour this year and I will show off one photo of each location. If you want the list of SLURL's msg me inworld for it!


You can see all the photos I took at this link here.. OH and while I am thinking about it, I do also put up a selection of each locations photos at my flickr page HERE

OH and I have my new graphics card. Works great so far! Just some stalling out in sims with lots of people. As it also acts up when I am working in paint shop I think its a ram issue, I need more. Soon!!

This week is, once again, from the Silly Scents. This color was chosen in honor of my roommate Turlock who plays a Big foot for a local chairty haunt we work in October. Actually he had a choice between this shade of brown and Sasquatch Socks, which is a pink. You can guess why he chose Big Foot Feet!

Onto the sim!

Oh holy cow I loved this place! You get to go TRICK OR TREATING! And there is a scary haunted house that is a trick to find! One hint, wear the flashlight when you get it and make sure you have attached lights working! Because the flashlight helps SOOOOO much in the area you get it for. I didn't even think to turn it on for a while and was highly frustrated with the darkness in areas. Do not be me, turn on your flashlights! I usually keep mine off as some people still use STUPID bright face lights, but this time, you want one.

The town of Havenhollow is fantastically done, as is the Haunted house and I just could not narrow it down too 4 or so photos so I'll be using a nice cut so you don't go OMG PHOTOS! And you can see all the photos I took at this link here Plus I HIGHLY recommend going to the sim and going trick or treating yourself! It's free to do! Don't miss the haunted house either as that's where some fun end prizes are at.

OH! and a big YAAYY I won an auction for a new graphics card for like 1/3 of what the card is worth. I should have it by November and I am so excited! woot! I know it will help just on its own but some more Ram will also be gotten before the year is out to make things tons more easier on me.

Shadow is the one color this month that is NOT in the silly Scents pack. It can be found in the 120 count pack and was introduced in 1998. I picked it for the spooky name. And the color is, someplace in that outfit I have on. Techincaly so is next weeks color :P And I have more stuff on next weeks for..next weeks.

This weeks spooky location is a super MUST go see! I enjoyed it a lot! Even if my comptuer didn't and I had to switch to Adar's to finish the photos. Which explanes the two sizes of photos. I think I figured out my current problem *other then I need a new graphics card* and that I had my bandwith set to high. We'll see how the next location goes.

Anyway, as I said, I really enjoyed this place. its a nice mix of haunted themes, there is a breif ride, then an easy maze, then a haunted house, then if you can GET into it, a zombie shooting place.


The only issue I had was outside the haunted house was too many gang up on you and attack monsters and no way to smack em down. Inside the house it was fine though. Also I could not get inside the zombie shooting game area as the door woudln't unlock even though I had on the required hud.

Fun green color, that like I said last week, comes from a pack called Silly Scents and I have NO idea what Alien Armpit smells like.


I found this weeks haunted place via the destination guide, and..I do not recommend it. It's a maze and its a pain in the NECK maze. You can't see the walls, they are made of knee high dark brush on a dark floor with Cat luminaries your to follow. Which is hard enough as it is, but they have stuff attacking you that pushes you away from the spots you;re to turn! And the invisible walls go all the way to the ceiling so just turning on highlight transparent to SEE the walls results in a bit red blur.

I have no idea if there is a prize at the end as I gave up. I had a hard enough time finding the opening!

If you want to be really super challenged with a maze this would be it. If you get frustrated easily, avoid it.

That Said I did get a few photos, mostly from panning the camera around You can see all of them here

With one exception, all of this months crayons come from a 2006 set of crayons called Silly Scents. They where scented but I have no idea what they smelled like as they all have crazy names that well, it they smelled like they are name they'd be NASTY.

The pose is another Hopscotch pose this time for an event that looks like TONS of fun and with as often as I am looking for candy themed items I have got to get my self too once its not in the OMG JUST OPENED MUST GO rush. It's called Candy fair and if you want a preview of all the exclusive items you can find visit this pintrest board

For the first haunted place I explore this year I chose Pumpkin Town. And it took a while! It has events which makes exploring hard so I couldn't go then. And the place is very Busy and a wee bit laggy, Textures took FOREVER to rez and then kept blurring on me. But it was a lovely place, good for both autumn shots and spooky shots, a nice haunted house and swamp area, some shops and other spooky things!
