Halloween is right around the corner and seems like everyone on Second Life is embracing the spirit of the spooky season. Personally, I love Halloween and have been known to decor every inch of my place and dream up crazy costumes. I never purchase a pre-package costume in RL, opting to make something, or piece together items I already own. I want to create something unique that has my own personal touch. Also, I don’t break the bank with an expensive costume that you wear one time around. Today, I want to focus on a few Bliss Couture group gifts (all free) that can be re-purposed for Halloween Costume. Bliss Couture is a ladies fashion house offering casual, formal, hats and hair as well as a past designer of MVW gowns. Creator of Bliss Couture, Amutey DeCuir decided it was time to say goodbye and has been having a closing sale and hunt. It’s well worth joining Bliss (for free) to get the hunt items and exclusive gowns before the doors are shut.
First costume I styled today is the Witchy Witch Gown, a special Halloween group gift. I like how sexy, yet practical this outfit is. You could wear the top or skirt with anything else in your inventory after Halloween or add a hat to create a new character. I paired the Vogue Skull Hat, another group gift (free to join and only available a few more days, so hurry now) to create a new spin on witches. I think Glory looks bewitching.

Next up is the Nichole Orange Babydoll Dress, paired with Witchy Witch hat and Melinda Denver Witch Broom (Pumpkin Town skull hunt gift). The orange babydoll dress can easily be worn around the grid shopping, or hanging out with friends after Halloween by wearing the Stars! Onyx Autumn Set (Mass Hysteria Hunt until 10/31).

Lastly, harken back to the 40’s glam style in the gold satin Veronica Lake inspired Bliss Couture Lively Halter Gown. I paired Exile Just a Reason platinum hair and dripped myself in diamonds to channel the film noir era. Taxi to Bliss please….
