Things to do in-world this Halloween season
There is a lot you can do or a lot of places you can travel to in-world during this Halloween festive period, with many OpenSim grids running Halloween-related events such as hunts and parties, some grids having Halloween related islands and regions where they are celebrating OpenSim builds and hosting build contests and expos, and still others offering costumes to better your avatar for the Halloween celebrations.
Some events will last for days, a month, for hours and some Halloween-themed regions for a lifetime. A number of events have already kicked off. So we have put together a list of places that you can spend at or things you can do inside virtual worlds come Halloween 2017. The list is developing so please add yours too if you are a grid or land owner or send us to add it in.
1. Grab Halloween costumes at Baller Nation
You can now pop into Baller Nation’s Imagine Anything market and grab some costumes to dress your avatar in readiness for Halloween, whether you have a sapphira or any other mesh body. The region is Gloebit-enabled.

2. Hunt missing people to win prizes at Kroatan
Participants will search for 12 people who are missing in the Abbandonato town and are free to ask the town dwellers for some hints. Some will talk, some will give notecards that lead to prizes and some some will give little gifts immediately, but others will remain maim.
You will also win prizes at the end of the hunt after finding the 12 missing people.
“Each hunter will get a free HUD at the landing point, which shows 11 posters of missing people. By asking the residents of Abbandonato, hunters should find out what happened to the missing persons and will get rewarded at the end of the hunt game,” grid owner Bink Draconia told Hypergrid Business.
And this project was as a result of three grids coming together so you will taste some variety, with the Abbandonato town being built by Kiki Baily of KiWo grid. Other collaborators for the project include Paristella Marisol from Chilumba grid and Bink Draconia from Kroatan, who created the hunt story, scripts and promotions. The hunt trailer was done by Marina Baer of the Public World grid.

4. Visit the new Isle of Nightmares at DigiWorldz
The Isle of Nightmares launched at DigiWorldz on Friday 13 with a twist of horror events but you can still get in for some horrific Halloween experiences during the time of the event.
“It’s not so much of an event but an opening of a sim that is dedicated to Classic Horror to be shared with all and explored,” region owner Morticia Soulless told Hypergrid Business. “It is visually captivating or at least we feel it is. We are doing 90 percent of the builds ourselves working towards a very cohesive region.”
