“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.” – from Shakespeare’s Macbeth
Oh, there are strange ( and stranger) things afoot, and all over the Grid, Residents and Creators alike are brewing up some Halloween mischief. It is — after all — one of the most exciting and celebrated holidays in Second Life!
All Hallows Eve, Samhain. Hallow E’en – a time when the spookiest, kookiest, and most mystical of mayhem rolls into our world like a thick and possibly sentient fog. The veil between the living and the departed grows thin, and everywhere you look, you see pumpkins, skeletons, ghosts, and ghouls. And don’t forget the treats, and sweets, and tricks and broomsticks – it’s magical!
This week’s destination video highlights just a few of the scarier Regions you can experience in Second Life, and while many embrace the spookier side of things all year round, be sure to haunt the Haunted category of the Destination Guide, throw on your favorite costume, and explore. Then join us on Halloween from 11 am to 2 pm SLT for our annual Creepy Crawl. More details on the schedule for that are coming …
Locations featured in this video are:
Explore the timeless coastal island of Arranmore, with its haunted manor house and photogenic scenery. Enjoy the creepy landscape shrouded in mist. Remember, it is not what you can see that is scary – it is what you can’t see. Don’t forget to take the flashlight from the station platform when you arrive.
Welcome to Everwinter, a post-apocalyptic theme park. Many years after a nuclear disaster, Everwinter sits frozen in time. Explore the aftermath, take in the sights and sounds, or maybe find a quiet spot in an abandoned building. Frequented by scavengers and those lucky enough to survive, only time will tell how long you’ll last in Everwinter.
Welcome to Pendle Hill, a new creepy build by Lauren Bentham. Explore the dark side of Second Life at this creepy haunted island. Bring your friends and wander the misty shores and haunted house of Pendle Hill, but remember, it is not what you can see that is truly scary, it is what you can’t see. Don’t forget your camera, so you can take home some photo memories of your visit.
These regions are made by well-known UK-based designer Lauren Bentham, whose work – with her unique style that includes delicate windlight design – includes more lighthearted fare such as beaches and other relaxation spots.
Have a Great Week From All Of Us At ZI
