It’s Hallowe’en – with Spooktacular events coming up before – and after! – The Mad Masquerade…

Halloween is coming…creeping its way into our collective consciousness in SecondLife™ by the increasing pervasiveness of a lightly acrid mist and the mounting prevalence of special events focused on the dark side – and the fun of spooky costumes and other trappings of the season. Are you looking forward to TRICK-OR-TREATING – or just enjoying the sugary treats to be brought in by other sweet little goblins? At our house, there will be candied and caramel apples, maple popcorn, and pumpkin-clove cupcakes on which to feast – and lots of spooky stories told ’round the bonfire up in the hills.

As we prepare, our thoughts turn to the third annual MAD MASQUERADE at Ce Soir Arts. The event will be held on Thursday, 27 October, and this year, it promises to be even MORE fun than ever before. For one thing, we have the entire sim to play with and enjoy. We already have several ghoulish spots, and they’ll become increasingly so as the week moves along…slowly, creepily, darkly, inexorably…toward the Halloween holiday itself. Do see below the week’s offerings as we make our way to Thursday and the very flambouyantly mad, musical MAD MASQUERADE at the Witchwood Hollow Cemetery in Ce Soir Arts (when we hope you’ll all come decked out in your scary best!) – and then the very spooky events of Halloweeon Monday, next…when we shall dare to visit the GRAVEYARD DUNGEON for more spine-chilling reading from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book – from none other than the spooktacular Caledonia Skytower. Dare you join us? There will be a rather gruesome literary SURPRISE following Cale‘s riveting reading…muahahaha! Look for more on that in our next posting….


Of course, you know that beforehand, there will be a bit of a sinister prodrome
