Gothical: A Light in the Darkness

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: "Come into the light," a man's voice spoke softly to Little Bunny. Who was he? Why did she feel so terrible? The last thing she remembered was eating and drinking too much at the Princess Layla's Taste of October party. Her eyes flickered open, and she immediately regretted it. "No... it burns!" The man was holding her tenderly. She would have protested but she felt so weak. "Don't be afraid," he said. "I'm an Exorcist. I've dealt with the Princess. She won't harm you again, at least not until next October. She is banished for now. Sadly, I was not able to stop all her designs. Your life will be different now." Bunny shook her head, "What do mean. I don't understand." The man laid her down gently. "I'm sorry to deliver such sad news. You have been bitten by the Nosferatu. But I will help you, if you trust me."


There's a lot to do for Halloween in SL, just check the Destination Guide, but one you may not know about is the Hakoniwa sim event, by Yazoo Rang and Aslan, veteran creators of many past excellent adventures like Horror Night. To begin, pick up a hud at the start, and search the entire sim for the missing front gate letters "Hakoniwa." You can read more about the event here: The Dark Forest Birth in Hakoniwa. Game is from from October 28 to November 30, 2019.

Gothical: Chibit Halloween Party

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: Little Bunny was thirsty. Not wanting to disturb the party's host, she quietly made her way to the kitchen when the strangest thing happened, -- a tiny ghost with a bottle of wine flew up to her and filled her glass. But thats not all, she discovered all of Castle Hart's servant staff were tiny magical beings! She rubbed her eyes.... Surely someone had slipped an hallucinogen into her meal. It couldn't be real, could it?

Introducing the Chibit avatar by Guaran-Dou. Its a cute little avatar that debuted back in June, and has a lot of support by the Japanese designers. Several current events have items for it. From Gothical is the SteamPunk gacha by Guaran-Dou, Rose Princess gacha by Frangipani Garden, and the Antique Outfits gacha by Sakka's Studio.

Gothical: A Taste of October

(click to enlarge)
STORYLINE: When the leaves change color, the sun dips lower, and the harvest is all gathered, it means only one thing to Little Bunny, -- Princess Layla's annual "A Taste of October" party! Her fluffy cotton tail perked up as she hopped all the way to dark gothic castle that loomed over the otherwise sunny town. Yes, Princess Layla was mysterious. No one had ever seen her leave the castle, not even to stroll the castle gardens, but Bunny paid no attention to that. She loved dressing up for the formal party and eating all the delicious food! The Princess was a very gracious host. Bunny was almost drooling by the time she knocked on the giant arched doors of Castle Hart. ...Who knows, maybe this year, the Princess would notice her!

The second round of Gothical has begun. I dearly love Elegant Gothic Lolita, and Elegant Gothic Aristocrat styles.
