The Sims Freeplay- Halloween Quest 2017: Ghost Flustered

THIS QUEST IS NOW OVER


There is a brand new Halloween Quest this year! To begin this quest you will need to update your game to the Halloween update. The time limit for this quest is 9 days, if you manage to complete this quest in the time limit you will unlock Halloween Sleepwear for all your sims to wear!

There are 5 sets of goals to complete, each set of goals you complete earns you a prize, the first four unlock a body paint for all your sims and the last set unlocks body paint and the sleepwear. I am not sure yet if you have to wait between completing each set like last year, previously after completing a set you would have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest unless you are behind.

Check out my step by step video of this quest here

Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has.

First set: Complete the first set of goals to unlock the red body paint for all your sims

  • Answer the phone- 48 seconds

  • Calm sim on a phone- 40 minutes

  • Search a home lot- 1 hour 40 minutes (click on candy pile at front of house)

  • Go to the park
  • Discuss paranormal activity (select option on Wizard)- 4 hours 10 minutes

  • Discuss paranormal scene findings (you’ll find the Wizard at one of your houses)- 1 hour 40 minutes

  • Travel to the Wizards cottage (click on the wizard)

  • View ghosts in crystal ball- 2 hours 30 minutes

  • Discuss stopping ghosts with Wizard Wickham (go home first)- 5 hours 50 minutes

 

YOU CAN NOW FIND THE RED BODY PAINT IN THE WARDROBE

Second set: Complete the second set of goals to unlock the yellow body paint for all your sims

  • Apply red body paint from a wardrobe (select browse clothes on a wardrobe, find the body paint tab and click on the red paint to apply it to that sim)

  • Trick or treat with 5 sims (select the interaction between 5 PAIRS of sims (10 sims), one sim in each pair needs to be wearing the red body paint)- 4 hours 10 minutes (TIP: this only takes 5 minutes if one of the sims in a pair is a preteen so you can just use the preteen to complete this 5 times!)

Still confused? There are three options to this task:

  1. Have a sim with red body paint select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim, do this 5 times with those 2 sims, this is the longest option and I wouldn’t recommend it
  2. Have 5 pairs of sims (10 sims), have 5 of them wearing the body paint and then select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim without red body paint on, do this with all 10 sims so you are doing this 5 times all at once to complete it quicker
  3. If you have a preteen then use them! With a preteen all the trick or treat tasks only take 5 minutes so give the preteen red body paint and then they can select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim and do this 5 times, so much quicker than the other two options! If you don’t have a preteen use the second option

  • Talk to Ghoulio the Ghost- 10 hours 50 minutes

  • Plant corn- 20 minutes (using a garden patch, can be started early)
  • Give corn to Ghoulio- 4 hours 10 minutes

  • Grow watermelon- 1 hour (using a garden patch, can be started early)
  • Give watermelon to Ghoulio- 9 hours 10 minutes

  • Ask Ghoulio for help- 4 hours 10 minutes

YOU CAN NOW FIND THE YELLOW BODY PAINT IN THE WARDROBE

Third set: Complete the third set of goals to unlock the blue body paint for all your sims

  • Apply yellow body paint from a wardrobe (select browse clothes on a wardrobe, find the body paint tab and click on the yellow paint to apply it to that sim)

  • Trick or treat with 5 sims (select the interaction between 5 PAIRS of sims (10 sims), one sim in each pair needs to be wearing the yellow body paint)- 6 hours 40 minutes (TIP: this only takes 5 minutes if one of the sims in a pair is a preteen so you can just use the preteen to complete this 5 times!)

  • Give Hack scaring advice- 12 hours 30 minutes

  • Go to the park
  • Talk scares- 50 minutes (click on Hack)

  • Approach statue- 50 minutes each (you need to complete this 3 times but 3 sims cannot complete this at the same time, you can have one sim complete it 3 times)

  • Ask Hack for help- 2 hours 30 minutes

YOU CAN NOW FIND THE BLUE BODY PAINT IN THE WARDROBE

Fourth set: Complete the fourth set of goals to unlock the green body paint for all your sims

  • Select blue body paint from a wardrobe (select browse clothes on a wardrobe, find the body paint tab and click on the blue paint to apply it to that sim)

  • Trick or treat with 5 sims (select the interaction between 5 PAIRS of sims (10 sims), one sim in each pair needs to be wearing the blue body paint)- 4 hours 10 minutes (TIP: this only takes 5 minutes if one of the sims in a pair is a preteen so you can just use the preteen to complete this 5 times!)

  • Talk hopes and dreams- 7 hours 30 minutes (click on Warts)

  • Apply body paint to Warts- 5 hours 50 minutes (click on Warts again)

  • Reason with Capsworth- 5 hours 50 minutes

  • Pursue Capsworth to the park (go to the park)
  • Interrupt Capsworth- 50 minutes

  • Study at candy stash- 4 hours 10 minutes

  • Reveal truth- 10 hours 50 minutes

  1. Once again, thank you so much for this information! You are always a tremendous help in getting through these quests!

    When I updated my game the Sims Freeplay icon is now an Android robot, is it supposed to be like that? Anyone else have this? The game works it just threw me off.

    Thanks again. Happy simming and Happy Halloween to everyone.

    • You’re welcome! I’m glad I can help 🙂
      Sometimes when I update apps on my android they turn into this symbol instead of the app icon but they work fine so I don’t think it is anything to worry about!

  2. I wish They brought back the gingerbread event with all the candy, Ice cream, sweets themed stuff somehow I missed this? And I been playing this game since late 2014 I believe it came out in 2015? Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m waiting for my game to update right now for this Halloween event ❤

  3. Thank you for uploading and writing it – I LOVE your blog and always refer to it!

    Can you please tell me, I know it says you need to have access to all age groups before getting the sleepwear in any wardrobe – if I haven’t unlocked the seniors yet is there any point in doing it?! I just don’t know if the sleepwear will magically appear once I have done the seniors quest.

    Thank you!!

  4. If you don’t complete within time limit can you still get the pjs?

  5. Thank you for another great and helpful post. I just wondered if anyone noticed the flat, square, green chunk of land with the road around it across from the train station in the downtown core? Was it always there?

  6. If you currently don’t have an age group, can you still get the sleepwear when you get them? For example, I don’t have a toddler right now, but when I age my baby will I get the toddler sleepwear? Thank you for your post!

  7. Your posts are honestly such lifesavers. Thank you SO MUCH for all this help!!

  8. For the red Sims, does it have to be the same Sims doing all the pairing (so it takes 5 Times 4h30 which is ridiculous) or it can be 5 different Sims doing trick or Treat at the same time (so it only takes 4h30)

    • No it doesn’t, like it says in the post you can use 5 pairs of sims so that means 10 sims can complete this at the same time but if you have a preteen make sure you use them to complete this task as it will only take 5 minutes each time.

  9. Thanks as always for your excellent t walk-throughs!

    When you say you can start growing the corn (and watermelon) early, do you mean I can only start 10h30 after the previous task (which takes 10h50) otherwise it’ll complete before that task, or do you mean I can start whenever and it’s only when I collect the corn that the task is completed?

    • You’re welcome! You can start the growing tasks early but you need to start them in a different house and stay away from that house until you get the task to grow them otherwise it won’t complete the task.

  10. I’m doing this quest right now, but whoa! It’s such a really long quest! Do you think is possible to complete it in the time limit or I’ll need to use some lps at some point?

  11. Thank you so much for the tips about trick-or-treating. I didn’t realize that it had to be 5 pairs not 5 sims, and knowing about the preteens will save me a ton of time!

  12. Hi , first of all I should say thank you for your time and all ur information. Then I want to ask can l use a preteen for 5 times or it should be done with 5 different preteens?

  13. Do you like the prize for completing the task? Just want your opinion

  14. Has anyone noticed that it sounds as though Ghoulio is saying (quite clearly) “What’s happening to number seven?”

  15. Hi, firstly, I love your blog. My question is I saw on the update that a chocolatier hobby event is coming. I don’t have this hobby yet so I read one of your other posts and it said to get it you do an event. I don’t know if the chocolatier hobby event just hasn’t come yet (if so do you know when it’s coming) or if there is some problem with my game. I am currently a level 31. Thanks!

  16. Hello dear, I’m stuck on the step for “Trick or treat with 5 sims” which didn’t clear. The instructions aren’t explained well, I have red body paint but I wasted 4 HOURS.

    Do I use one sim five times? Or how many times/how many sims??

    I have 10 adult sims. My 5 sims grinded this step with 5 painted sims but nothing happened.

    • Sorry I tried to explain it as best as possible. I have updated the post and added more information on this task.
      There are 3 options to complete this task:
      1.Have a sim with red body paint select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim, do this 5 times with those 2 sims, this is the longest option and I wouldn’t recommend it
      2.Have 5 pairs of sims (10 sims), have 5 of them wearing the body paint and then select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim without red body paint on, do this with all 10 sims so you are doing this 5 times all at once to complete it quicker
      3.If you have a preteen then use them! With a preteen all the trick or treat tasks only take 5 minutes so give the preteen red body paint and then they can select the interaction to trick or treat with another sim and do this 5 times, so much quicker than the other two options! If you don’t have a preteen use the second option

  17. Does the sleepwear make the sims have bodypaint on when they wear it or can they have the normal skin colors?

  18. A long time ago I missed the indoor skydiving thing in the mall by a couple hours! I was so mad! Haha!! Any idea how to get it? It seems like everything else they repeat and I’ve been able to collect everything. This is the one thing I missed!

    • That was from a timed hobby and those don’t repeat unfortunately so now the only way to get it (these aren’t guaranteed to win you this prize though!) is to either earn it in a mystery box by completing weekly tasks, simtown market events or hope they add it to the store one day so you can buy it with real money.

  19. Love your blog!! Can you start the trick or treat early once the body paint is unlocked?

  20. I only have enough sims for the trick or treat task, however, I also need one to do another task. Do all of my sims have to trick or treat at the same time for it to work, or can some finish earlier than others and still accomplish the task?

  21. Is there going to be another class coming up this year where we could get a Halloween witch costume ?

    • The Halloween costumes from previous years will be the prizes for the Halloween Chocolatier Event, this event hasn’t started yet but I will create a post as soon as it begins.

  22. Thank you! Very helpful.

  23. Thanks for your tips and blog, always very helpful.
    Quick question: once you apply Body paint, can you return to the regular skin colors? I have not been able to figure out how. Thanks again

  24. Hi there, this really helped me for the first lot of trick or treating. However when I did the same thing with the yellow body paint it hasn’t worked… I triple checked that I had 5 PAIRS of Sims trick or treating at the same time and it didn’t do anything. Do you know why this might have happened?

  25. I looked at the body paint and pajamas u got for the last one and I kind of want them cause they look pretty cool but i looked and I don’t actually have enough time to finish it😭 also I was really happy to see you are still doing this since the last time u did was like 3 years ago.

  26. I only got four days for the quest 😦 how come?

  27. Hello I’ve tried changing the body paint back to the previous color they had but they just end up being the precious color not their original skin color. Any ideas?

  28. The Ghost Flustered only appeared a day or so ago and I’m in the middle of going yellow to blue……now it says “sorry, you ran out of time”. How on earth can this be right. On reading the previous post, I don’t understand your reply. What do you mean by ‘updating too late’. Thanks in anticipation of your clarity explaining this to a newby gamer, aged 58!

    • This is a time limited event so it is only available for a certain amount of days for everyone before it disappears and you cannot complete it, the quest started on the 9th October so if you didn’t update your game and start it within a day or two you get less time to complete it than if you started it as soon as it was released.

      • Thanks for this answer! I was coming here to ask the same thing! There is no way for me to get everything done. I just started trick or treating and I don’t have preteens yet. I have 33 hrs left. I wish I would have read your post before I started it. Seems a bit unfair to shorten it for those who started the quest later.

      • Thank you for the clarity of your reply. Much appreciated. Kind regards.

  29. I dont think i could manage this quest in time 😦
    Can I redo this quest again next year?

    • If you contact the makers and let them know you want them to bring this quest back again then they might, they do listen to players! The quest last year was the same as the year before as so many players wanted it to return!

  30. How do you remove body paint off of a Sim ??,

  31. Tried removing the body paint as you said …but it doesn’t work please help!
