NC Mall's Top 20 Halloween/Spooky Items

by watergun1490


     One of the best parts about Neopets is the ability to customize our pets. The NC Mall has been around for 10 years now and it's still just as popular as the first day it opened. The NC Mall boards are constantly active with Neopians looking to trade for new or retired items. The best part about customizing is the ability to wear items from different seasons! As an avid customizer myself, I have created looks for my Neopets for nearly every season/holiday. I know that a lot of Neopians do the same as well.

      Knowing that most Neopians have multiple outfits for various seasons or holidays, I decided to do a survey to see which Halloween or spooky NC mall items are the most popular when creating their Halloween/spooky looks. I asked for voters to list their top 10 must-have spooky or Halloween items for their customizations. These can be things they have or do not have and are seeking.

      I created multiple boards throughout the past few weeks at various times of the day in hopes of getting feedback from various Neopians. In the end, there was a total of 257 votes and 116 NC items suggested! I now present to you the top 15 most popular NC Halloween/spooky items:

     1. Name: Gate to Deserted Fairgrounds Foreground

     Value: 8-10 caps. This item is very sought after despite is lower-end cap value. Very few people are willing to trade it away.

     Source: This item was awarded during the Masks of Dread questing event.

     2. Name: Spooky Sprouted Pumpkins

     Value:2-3 caps. This item was a close second to the number one item on our list. It is considered a foreground item.

     Source: This item was sold in the NC mall in 2013.

     3. Name: Designer Trick-or-Treat Bag

     Value: 2 caps. This item is a popular Closet or Hard-to-part-with (HTPW) item. It has a low cap value, but is genuinely hard to part with! It goes with many Halloween and/or Fall outfits.

     Source: This item was sold in the NC mall back in 2008.

     11. Name: Dyeworks Purple: Jewelled Pink Spyderweb Garland

     15. Name: Menacing Tendril Wings

     Value:1-2 caps. This item is a personal favorite of mine and is definitely underappreciated. It is one of the more spookier items floating around Neopets and goes with many Halloween and/or Spooky outfits. It looks great on almost any pet!

     16. Name: Appetizing Caramel Apple (Apple)
