[ANNOUNCEMENT] Haunted Gothic House Theme Brief

Postby Viking Andrew » Wed Jul 28, 2021 4:06 pm

Hey YoFans!

You told us what theme you wanted to see the most in our most recent Halloween survey, and now you get the chance to help us plan what it looks like!

Haunted Gothic House, suggested by YoFan Autumn Glory
Image

Theme Brief: We're looking to put together an abandoned Gothic house with elegant but dreary furnishings from a once-magnificent era of splendor. Just because no one lives there doesn’t mean it’s uninhabited, though...

Here is what the house might look like:
Image


We want your suggestions on what you want to see in those rooms!

Not the theme you were hoping for? Don’t worry. There is also a spot to leave off-theme suggestions—please put these ideas inside the General Halloween Suggestions thread!

I have one overriding comment that supersedes all others for me -

GO HEAVY ON THE "HAUNTED" AND LET THE "GOTHIC" BE THE BACKGROUND FOR IT

Don't just make us a gothic styled couch and be done with it. Infuse it with haunt. Haunt haunt haunt. It's not a haunted house unless you guys give us stuff to haunt it with. My pics later on will be all about HAUNTED and rarely be about GOTHIC.

WTF? Why so many indoor rooms? What happened the horror camping? Why do we get 2 boring houses for HW?

Aside from that everything bloody and dark that has been posted is what I want in this theme. You already made me want to just not stick around with the house and theme reveal. Gothic could've been done anytime in the year :(

Why oh why wasn't gothic the fluff theme this year? We had so many darker suggestions that would've been better for the dark theme.

Also same as last one, I am happy for AG and hope it is what she envisioned. Just really feeling let down with the insane amount of indoor BS!

Wondering about the house layout...

The floor plan shows hallways on both sides of the foyer, and a direct entry to the attic from the foyer. Having a double staircase to those hallways would be awesome. But if the foyer also leads directly to the attic, that would be three staircases in the foyer. Are the hallways on the ground floor? I would prefer the hallways/bedrooms to be upstairs, but not sure how this is all going to work with the attic being accessed directly from the foyer.

Also, the kitchen and back yard appear to be MIA.

At least that would've been different. 2 similar type homes this year with a total neglect for outdoor fun sucks! :(

Two hallways? Please make one of them a courtyard. And that nursery would be a great observatory.

:shocked: :phew:

Theres no kitchen. We've had several houses with no kitchen, a house needs a kitchen, I always rename stuff and make them. But that also means theres no themed items for the kitchen either.

I agree about a courtyard but think the nursery should stay take out the second bedroom instead, doesn't need two bedrooms (or bathrooms for that matter not unless the items are all going to be unique for each rather than the same just different colours)
