The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff is the third stuff pack released for The Sims 4. The pack includes a number of decorations and fun things to create the perfect fall holiday atmosphere. Glowing ghosts, laser-light cauldrons, haunted candy bowls and more add up to help make the new Spooky Party event a (pumpkin) smashing success!
Pumpkin Carving Station
Click to Enlarge. The Pumpkin Carving Station is the featured item in Spooky Stuff. Use your Handiness abilities to create a creepy masterpiece to frighten, amuse, titillate or gross out your friends and relatives. Preserve the carvings forever, or stomp them flat when they rot, or even sell them for cold, hard Simoleans!
The designs available to your Sims are based on their Handiness skill (Motor skill for Child Sims). Carving a pumpkin will slowly build up the skill. The following designs are available to Child, Teen and Adult Sims:
- Dud Pumpkin (failed carving)
- Classic - Motor 3
- Cat - Motor 5
The remaining designs can be carved by Teens or Adults:
- Ghost - Handiness 2
- Smiling - Handiness 2
- Owl - Handiness 3
- Scared - Handiness 3
- Puking - Handiness 4
- Wicked - Handiness 5
You can then select one of four colors of pumpkin: Orange, Pale Orange, Green or White
Each carving costs $25 regardless of design or color chosen. Once carved a pumpkin can be places on the ground or on some surfaces. A few interactions are available when you click on a carved pumpkin:

- Light Candle
- Light/Extinguish Candle
- Put in Inventory
- Preserve ($50) - Handiness level 5
- Possess (Ghosts)
- Wear (Ghosts)
*Caution! Make sure you extinguish the pumpkin's candle before smashing it, or your Sim could catch fire!
A carved pumpkin will spoil after about 4 days. If your Sim has reached Handiness level 5, you can use the Preserve interaction to make the pumpkin last forever - or at least until your little ghoul or goblin smashes it. Like paintings, carved pumpkins can be sold. The sale value depends on the Handiness level of the Sim as well as the design used.
A new party is added to the game. The Spooky Party is - appropriately - a costume party. It can be held at any location, but it's best to hold at your Sims' house as you can prepare for a successful party easier. Throwing a Spooky Party costs $250 to throw and can cost more if you decide to hire a caterer and/or mixologist ($250 each).
Once things are set, any invited Sims on the current lot will switch into costumes. You can also click on your current Sim and use the Set Party Costume interaction to pick your favorite costume. At the party, chat up the other guests with some new Spooky Party socials:
- Request to carve pumpkin
- Ask for party treat
- Discuss costume
- Compliment costume
Build up enough party fever to score a Gold Medal to unlock the Super Llama costume!
To go along with the Spooky Party, three new recipes are available:
- Cheese Eyeballs - Cooking 2
- Spooky Cookies - Cooking 3
- Zombie Cake - Cooking 4
