PostSubject: How to Make a #SpookyHouse for your Spooky Party   Wed Sep 30, 2015 2:33 pm

Don’t Make it Too Spooky

With the recent release of The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff*, your Sims can throw their very own Spooky Party, complete with costumes, pumpkins, and ghoulish snacks. Let’s make that party even better by building a #SpookyHouse for your party goers to revel in!

But making a spooky abode isn’t as easy as throwing spider webs all over the place (though that doesn’t hurt). It takes tact, and nuance, and unless you’re playing as the Goths, you may need a few tips…



Lay out the basics of your haunted house. There are some general themes to use that will set you down the right path when creating a foreboding home. Use the “Filter Items…” button in Build Mode to quickly narrow down your search to content that would be appropriate in a spooky setting. I recommend filtering under “Styles” and selecting “Queen Anne”. With your filter applied you can find a number of Victorian inspired “Styled Rooms” for a quick build, or try clicking on “Objects by Function” to see a wide assortment of individual objects that fit the theme.

Prepare your home to host a great party. Something I like to do to enhance the party atmosphere is to remove any chairs from my home’s dining room and use that space as a serving area instead. Include a bar that guests can get drinks from – or if you have The Sims 4 Luxury Party Stuff* you can add a drink fountain. Just before guests start to arrive, place a few of the new candy bowls that they can help themselves to. It’ll tide them over while you’re putting the finishing touches on delicious new finger food like Cheesy Eyeballs, Spooky Cookies, or the culinary pièce de résistance – the brand new Zombie Cake.

[ib]Create a scary living room with style![/b] Your home’s living room is where your guests will likely mingle, and a good host adds everything they need for a spooktacular evening of fun. Try using the “Filter Items…” button in Build Mode again, but this time select “Packs”, and then choose “Spooky Stuff”. Now when you click on the “Objects by Function” button, you’ll see all of the new themed objects that come with The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff, and you’re ready to decorate. A variety of new chairs, tables, décor help create a setting that can only be described as spooky-shabby-chic.



Share the spooky spirit with the neighborhood. Using the filter to again search for Spooky Stuff, you’ll find a number of objects perfect for the outdoors. Not only are the ghost lamps adorable, they come with multiple expressions that you may not have known about. Click on their color variant bar and you’ll find each one has a different expression to match the party’s mood. My personal favorite outdoor object is the “Parlor Trix Graveyard Lantern” – a set of tombstones that light up in different colors, as well as emitting fog to really up the ambiance. If you’re going all out though, terrify the community with a gigantic spider crawling on your home… simply select the “Misunderstood Spider” object and before placing it press the “]” key on your keyboard a few times. With a couple of clicks, you’ll have a deadly creature meant to terrify guests as they arrive!

Party time! Carve those pumpkins! In addition to the aforementioned food, attendees will all want to partake in carving their very own pumpkins. Place multiple Pumpkin Carving Stations around your living room, and be sure to find a spot to place each completed pumpkin once they’re finished. It’s important to keep each station free so that every Sim gets a turn having fun carving. Sims that are skilled in handiness can even preserve each carved pumpkin, which in turn become perfect decoration pieces when lit with a flickering candle.

Using these tips, you’ll be able to make the most frightening house in the neighborhood! Share your best on The Sims 4 Gallery with #SpookyHouse to show off your inclination for the aesthetically macabre and we might highlight some of our favorites later this month.
