Most of you will recall that Trinket blogged about these adorable Dwarf Hamsters for the Arcade Gatcha Event. I’ve seen these cute little critters all over the grid and meant to get back to the Arcade Event to score one…but it just didn’t happen. While out and about gathering landmarks for items…I ended up in one of my favorite little stores…Beetlebones. Suetabulous has a funky little place full of her whimsical, eclectic creations…and much to my surprise, I discovered that these hamsters were created by her! She has a gatcha display board where you can still pay the 100L to take your chance on getting one of several different coat types (mine is Siberian Cocoa). For that 100L you get the adorable avatar (it is mesh so you will need a mesh enabled viewer) AND a fabulous AO that just has the most adorable animations in it. Sue also has a really cute Winter Bunny Avatar gatcha board for only 50L.
I also stumbled on the fun little [Etchaflesh/Virtual Props] Trick and Treats Hunt being hosted by the owners of [Etchaflesh] and Virtual Props & Poses. You don’t have to join the group to participate in the hunt, but if you do…it is free to join; with frequent sales and perks. [Etchaflesh] specializes in gorgeous mesh corsets and Virtual Props & Poses has a wide range of poses and props; unlike any I’ve seen around the grid. Collect 25 candies on your Hunt HUD and redeem them at the prize kiosks for either corsets or a fun pose/prop pack…I chose the Magician pack; which comes with several hats (with and without doves), the wand, and several poses. The best part is that the poses and props were compatible with my hamster avi…with just minor fitting of the hat and wand. I also picked up the fabulous circus background texture at the hunt…in the Virtual Props & Poses store…for FREE!! Gotta just love that <3<3
The candies aren’t hard to find…and you can go back each day to collect another 25 candies and redeem them for another prize!

I was passed a notecard from Renee about the Trick or Treat event being held over three sims. You have to look around the Malt, Juicy and the Juicy Mirabella sims to find the stores with the Trick or Treat board outside, then find the Harvest Baskets. Click the basket, pay 1L per turn to try to get the gifts inside. Most give their gifts out without you having to spend more than 10L and these goodies are really worth it. The event ends today so go and get those last minute hunt finds while you can!
The Halloween Pumpkin Knit sweater and adorable fat pack of spooky socks are the gifts from Malt
Spork have packed their basket with the Flight Mini Gold Dress and the Olyvia Red Top. The Necklace is also one of their gifts as are the bracelets worn. There is also a cute Orange and Black vest top which is worn below.
10 Days to Teen Days offer a bundle of cuteness in their Basket to keep yourself warm on these Autumn nights, aswell as a cute little Scarecrow Dolly and a cauldron full of sweeties!
SD Wears have put these two cute outfits in their basket.
Category 5 have been very generous packing their basket with 4 gifts. These pictures just show 2 of the gifts inside. There is also a pack of sundresses and another gown available.
This gorgeous lingerie set is the gift from So Fab! and comes with another set of Halloween inspired orange stockings too.
The skins worn in all the pictures are the gifts in the basket for Total Betty and come in 3 skin tones. There are very pretty so go grab them while you can!
I can’t believe that October is almost over with for another year! With Halloween tomorrow, there is still time to get in some last minute hunting to gather all the generous gifts around the grid.
Today I wandered over the the Existence Sim, which is home to such great stores such as BOOM! and Modd G. They are having a Trick or Treat hunt which ends on 1st November. All you have to do is wander around the Sim and the stores and find the little orange goodie bags. Inside will be Tricks and Treats! Here is a selection of some of them! There are more to find.
