It’s Halloween Weekend! I hope you have your candy bowls ready for the Trick-or-Treaters! Did you get some pumpkins carved? What are you dressing up as?

Well, it may not be quite Halloween related, but we think these new items will bring you some smiles regardless. We have some nice inexpensive refrigerators in two different colors! Get your new white or black fridge to fill in that kitchen! And since it’s October, we thought a German Beer Stein would be nice for Oktoberfest!

Today we also have the very last for the new Pier 1 Imports items! However, we have some very exciting news. Due to popular demand, and since everyone loved the Pier 1 Imports items so much, we are extending the Pier 1 Imports Hotel store for one more week! That’s right, that means you have one more week to save up and buy these wonderful items. But hurry, this is the last chance!!

We hope these are some nice surprises for you, and we hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween!

Just don’t eat too much candy. It can give you quite a belly ache!

Hi all, I don’t know about you all, but I’ve been having a little trouble getting into the Halloween spirit this year. It could have something to do with the weird heatwave we had last week, it’s hard to feel all Halloweeny when it’s 80 degrees out!

Now the weather’s finally cooling off, and I’m starting to feel the spooky spirit.  A lot of that may have to do with the awesome crop of spine-chilling games we’ve gotten recently!  Here are a few games, both old and new, that combined with copious amounts of tiny candy bars, may just get you in the Halloween mood.

Trapped: The Abduction

What started out as a regular day has turned into a nightmare. As Trapped The Abduction opens, our young heroine awakes to find herself locked in the trunk of a car, and now she must use her wits to stay one step ahead of her abductor!

Campfire Legends: The Hookman

We’ve all heard the tale of the Hookman, but that’s just an urban legend, right? …Isn’t it? Now hear the story behind one of the scariest tales ever in Campfire Legends The Hookman, a hidden object adventure of darkness, shadows and frights!

Scratches

Scratches will release on Saturday – Early Look!

What is that noise in the basement? Sounds like… Scratches. Immerse yourself in this haunting Gothic thriller, where all the pieces of the puzzle will come together in a shocking final revelation.

Zombie Bowl O Rama

From the depths of the graveyard it’s Zombie Bowl O Rama! A gruesome zombie gang in search of brains! When Zombies show up at the town’s bowling lanes, it’s up to you to put ’em back in the ground!

Fishdom: Spooky Splash

Build up your spooky aquarium in Fishdom Spooky Splash! Earn cash as you complete addictive tile-swapping levels and spend it on fixing up your spooktacular tank.

http://www.iwin.com/games/nancy-drew-curse-of-blackmoor-manorNancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor

All’s not well in Blackmoor Manor, a 14th Century English mansion haunted by a tragic past.  A mysterious malady keeps Nancy Drew’s friend Linda hidden behind thick bed curtains. Is she hiding from someone, or is a more menacing threat stalking her?  And why is she covered in fur???

Plants vs. Zombies

Get ready to soil your plants in Plants Vs Zombies! Think fast and plant faster to stem a zombie attack and save your home in Plants Vs Zombies, an action packed strategy game!

Now that ought to get you in the spirit!

The iWin team wishes you and your family a happy and safe Halloween!

Today we have some more cabinets for you! And this time they are in White. Not only that, but they also have  wonderful green counter tops as well! These are so bright and cute, they seem perfect for decorating a bathroom as well! We’ll have a few cute more kitchen items for you this week, along with the last of the Pier 1 Imports items on Friday. Remember the last day to get Pier 1 Imports items will be November 2nd, so hurry and get your items today!

And if you’re looking for spooky, check out today’s new game Trapped: The Abduction. It’s very creepy, so much so that you should not have young children play it. But if you enjoy a good scary movie, this game may be fun for you. But fair warning, you may be quite scared!

What a trip creating Jojo’s Fashion Show: World Tour has been! I feel like I’ve traveled the world and back again, rounding up the hippest styles from Indonesia to Paris for you fashionable fans. My favorite style hands-down is the Gothic Loli style from Japan. It’s dark and mysterious, but still has a very feminine cut to it. I love how the game allows me to experiment with styles like Gothic Loli, which are more daring than the clothing I get to wear in everyday life. You’ll get a peek of the Gothic Loli style in Tokyo, the game’s first destination, where Jojo learns just a bit more about new intern, Hayley, during fashion week.

Although I could go on forever about all of the game’s twists, turns and new features, I thought I’d add another perspective on what makes this game so compelling.  Read on below for more about the game and how to succeed at it from Lead Level Designer, Erin Fernandez. Not only has she made brilliant creative contributions to the game, but she’s willing to dish on insider info.

Which of the game’s new features do you think players will be most psyched about?

I love being able to make my own clothes.  I have a sewing machine, but am not very good at actually making things with it.  The Design Clothes part of the game lets me play around with colors and patterns, without the frustration of ruining some perfectly good fabric.


Who would you recommend this game to?

Definitely my sisters.  I have two sisters, and we all love fashion.  We grew up with Elle and Vogue on the coffee table, and are always very fashion conscious.  I think they would absolutely love to play this game, and would enjoy it as much as I have.

What’s your favorite style in the game?

It’s hard to pick, because there are so many awesome styles in the game that playing it makes me want to go shopping!  But if I had to pick one style that I’d love to try to mix into my wardrobe, I’d say Paris Street.  I love the high-waisted skirt in those levels, and the gathered peasant top.  I love that it’s chic and tailored on the bottom, but feminine and bare shoulder on the top.  Indonesian Bridal is another one I’d love to wear, especially the jewelry. I can see myself rockin’ the chunky choker necklace or the cuffs. I love the clothing in that style because of the rich, vibrant jewel colors, and the funky patterns.  It really is hard to pick a favorite style!

Tips and Tricks for the Fashion Enthusiast!

Erin recommends the following:

Match colors…you might end up with a bonus if you do.  And take the time to look for signature outfits.  If you can take a glance at them early, and try to remember what they look like, you can keep an eye out for those pieces over the course of the level.  Also, read the style cards at the beginning of a level, and pay attention in the levels where there’s only one style.  Those teach you what the style’s look is all about, so you can be familiar already in the more difficult levels ahead
