Phil's Halloween Party
This event started at Noon casually and Zho is currently playing tunes for us. The event will go on late into the night with several dj's taking turns.

Remember, VIP~ Gestures and Sundries ( and Phil's HideOut ) HALLOWEEN HUNT 2015 is also still open, and will be for the first week of November. The link goes to my blog post about it, which has more details.

Club Amarantha has an event called "A Touch of Pink for Halloween" today at 5pm SLT.  If you add some pink to your outfit, you are good to go for the theme, the outfit does not have to be completely pink. This is a charity event for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

If you did not yet, make sure to pop by Whitechapel, the Halloween Maze by Badger Albatros. You get there by the left magic door at the Amarantha landing pier. I blogged it with a lot of pictures and a silly poem.

Phil's Haunted Maze

For those who like the spookier side of Halloween, VIP~ Gestures and Sundries ( and Phil's HideOut ) HALLOWEEN HUNT 2015 will be the answer! I may have inside information about one of the creators being scared of going in the maze herself! lol.
Definitely worth a visit. Or seven.

The hunt has gifts by VIP Gestures and Sundries, as well as donated ones by Cake Fox, The Random Fae and Twisted Tanks. (Auxiliary property donated by Kam Carson of BHB RENTALS).

15 free gift pumpkins are located all over the haunted maze and there is even one final bonus pumpkin, if you follow the final destination TP at the end of the maze. I found most of them, but they were pretty sneaky with the hiding places. Which is what you want from a free hunt in a cool maze.

The hunt is completely free, but you can donate, if you like, to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer pink kiosks.

If you like taking pictures in Second Life, this is a great spot to keep the landmark of. They do new sim designs regularly and always make things look extra good. I took some pictures for you but this is just one small bit of the huge area, you will have plenty to see when you get there!

Entry to the maze is via a magic door in the back wall of the club in the round ruins. The hunt will run through the first week of November and you can go any time until then.

The club will have a big party on Saturday 31st of October, starting from Noon SL time and continuing until late at night. Dj's will take turns entertaining people. You are encouraged to invite friends with you.

You can join VIP Gestures and Sundries group for free gifts and information on happenings at the location.

So I recently blogged the Halloween Crypt by Construct, and it was awesome. So now I thought about what I should blog for people, who are still finishing their halloween decorations, and decided to go visit their store, to see what else they have. Jackpot! I love their skeletons, they are so funny and well made.

They also had all kinds of stuff for people who want to decorate homes and businesses with clever and good looking things. For me, having several options for displaying pictures taken in Second Life is great, because I love adding personal touches to my home. My friend found some cool ideas for her upcoming sim design. And I really loved being able to share the "I love you cupcake giver" with another friend. We are so going to visit here a lot from now on!

I have been working on this project night and day, for well over a week, and I have to say getting donations, in form of prizes and artwork to sell for the cause, was a big boost for my motivation. I truly appreciate everyone's help. I can not wait to hear how you like the maze. Message Pieni inworld to let me know if you take pictures or blog the maze. Thanks!

Galleria Kakku Halloween Hunt Maze 2015 benefits Free2Luv.org 100% and is open 21st-31st October. Hunt gifts are 2L$each and the money goes to charity via script. The event was organized in agreement with the official SL avatar for the charity: Free2Luv Resident.

Welcome to Whitechapel

I visited the new halloween maze by Badger Albatros, who makes them every year.
I took a lot of pictures and am publishing them here with permission. If you wish to avoid spoilers, go visit first and read this afterwards, to see if we saw the same things.

I really loved this experience. Even though some of the mace was way too creepy for my tastes.

And to those who have phobias, I would stay clear, if you are afraid of (SPOILER) spiders, clowns or gore.

Left magic door at Club Amarantha pier..
You shall find your way in easy enough
If you have trouble with lights, be careful, here.
Bring a friend or it might get a bit too rough.

Off I go, running to the great unknown
Badger surprises me by showing his face.
Sitting in the movie theatre quite alone.
He is the evil mind behind this maze.

Speaking of faces, this one is creepy
No wonder it's hidden under the hood
And behind the corner I find a girl weepy
I am certain that she is just missunderstood.

She runs off so I move on to the church
I want to make sure they are not under siege
"Hey this is not a place for monsters to lurch!
You are not welcome, go back to your liege!"

And what is this thin guy trying to say?
I think he must have been
just idly moaning.
"Look out for the Gerberus!" "Bah go away!"
Not afraid of puppies, I move along, groaning.

Graveyard is messy. Safety hazard for sure.
I am looking for a place to leave a complaint.
These girls that chase me are beyond a cure.
Don't look at their scalp, or you might faint.

I tell Jack to burn that hideous wrap.
He does not want to learn from a stylish fox.
Instead he sends me to a clockwork trap.
"Get back here, let me out of this box!"

Once out I try all these machinery things.
I wonder what might all these levers do?
Found a store that only sells cogs and springs.
"What useless business plan have you?"

Funpark nearby makes me try my fluke.
I even win a shark from that rodeo ride.
But all this motion makes me want to puke.
This golden boat's maker just better hide!

Now I am mad enough to whack some goons.
I want to give these pirates a lesson or twenty
The wheel of fortune refuses me it's heirlooms.
Well that was just a penny, I still have plenty.

The carousel had turtles, that one I liked.
But the calm before the storm was very short
Failing at bear claws, my blood pressure spiked.
And here I had thought this my last resort.

The sassy weight machine tries to be funny.
It says I am eating way too much cake.
I must tell you I am not feeling too sunny.
"I am a cake fox, your results are fake!"

"Keep giggling clown", I say with a frown.
"I am not in the mood to have this dance with you".
Maybe a magazine might calm me down?
Oh this one is old and this one has no clue.

Why is that angel there reaching for me?
What kind of a place are they guarding from us?
"Hey I watch Dr Who, time to flee!"
Better safe than sorry. It might cause a fuss.

Inside the house there is darkness and gloom
And someone is printing these dotty discs.
I confront Jack predicting his doom.
Instead of running, this weird cloud he whisks.
I run upstairs, fast, dark corridor awaits.
What horrors do I see, when I open the door?
This disgusting clown his victims berates
I escape not wanting to see this anymore.

I guess I know now, where the girls came from.
Someone was experimenting with their head and skull.
That awful clown could do this out of sheer boredom.
 I guess an evil entity might find this place dull.

A green faced creeper tried to scare me just now.
It must have been a joke, that attempt was just lame.
I enter a room not really knowing how
These spiders knew to fall as soon as I came?

Wondering whose lab this is, I make my way across.
Old papers on a table and more signs of creepiness.
"Who works here, and who might be their boss?"
Then again, maybe I should ask questions less.
In the darkest corner of a room very dusty
Lives a huge spider his moments very last.
Does he even know that the hinges are rusty?
No matter, fox is here, and oh so very fast.
