A busy Halloween at Zerkalo

leave a comment »

Zerkalo are downright busy of late!  I spoke to designer Anais last night when I visited Britain Knave’s romantic new sim, Rosewood Isle, which I must say I found very beautiful.  More about that in another post.

So this post is about Zerkalo’s Halloween gacha – ‘Pumpkin Faces’ which you can find at the Wayward Halloween event and ‘Halloween in White’ which is available at The Seasons Story event. There’s a lot of discussion on the rights and wrongs of gacha but where else can you get such wonderful pieces of furniture and decor at such cheap prices?  If you want the whole collection, of course it’s not so cheap but my strategy is to play once or twice on any gacha I really love and I’m grateful for whatever I get! If you’re into styling then you can build up quite an inventory of gacha items and put them to good use on a theme or time of year, for instance.

Zerkalo - Pumpkin Faces - Wayward Halloween

‘Pumpkin Faces’ is a set of fun pumpkins suitable for various areas around the home and garden, I like them on the porch. Inside each pumpkin is a flickering candle which lights up the eyes or mouth and makes the whole item look suitably eerie. There’s 8 Commons and 1 Rare between 1 – 3 LI.

I put some of these out,  including the witches hat Rare pumpkin, on a forest floor area and there they sat flickering away. Windlight setting was a sunset one, I think, and it showed them up in glowing colour.

‘Halloween in White’ is a set of mainly white furniture and decor that Zerkalo are so good at texturing. I learned from a texture artist that white is one of the hardest colours to texture properly and I can well believe it because as soon as you add some shading or noise… well it isn’t white any more.

There are 7 commons and 1 Rare (the mantle) to collect in this gacha. The Rocking Chair has animations – 12 solo sits and 6 cuddles n kisses. Pieces are between 1 and 8 LI and are modify as well.

Here’s the set in a display, the windlight setting was an evening one because the stars were out in the sky and the candles glowed on the mantelpiece. I added an extra single candle as well.  A lovely little tea set is included in the gacha which you could use in any number of other settings for only 1 Land Impact.

So who’s coming to tea then?  In the dead of night you need some comfort *laughs*. Well, I wasn’t complaining 🙂
