Master, Master! Vana'diel has been on fire with goldfish scooping, dancing, and wild buffalos! But all that's over now, kupo! No more trouble, and no more heat! But don't you miss all the activity, actually? Aren't you itching for more excitement?
I have some information fresh from the M.H.M.U. (Mog House Management Union) that just might scratch that itch, kupo! Harvest time in Bastok, San d'Oria, and Windurst is now over, and a bone-chilling, fearsome festival is in the works! The towns will use the festival as a means to express their enormous thanks to the adventurers for the safety they bring, and provide a means of revenge for the ever-so-few trifling troubles they cause.
That's right, kupo! It's the third incarnation of the Harvest Festival!
The other details given to me are vague because apparently, the festival planners didn't want any information leaked to the adventurers, kupo! Luckily, the M.H.M.U. had a few secret agents planted at their meetings! Apparently, there will be more than just the typical monster costumes! A certain hazardous-looking decoration(*) devised by the engineers of Bastok is scheduled to make an appearance. Oooh, scaaary... I'm shaking in my fur, kupo! The planners have also set up patrols during the preparation for the festival, so they must be hiding more spine-tingling secrets!
Do you like playing tricks? Then I have good news for you, kupo! It seems they are planning to give away special costumes. Adventurers will roam the streets wearing the costumes and approach wary passers-by with calls of "Trick or Treat?"
What will the moogles be doing, you ask? Eating candy and playing tricks, of course, kupo!
(*) When questioned, Raibaht shouted, "What do you mean, 'It looks dangerous!?' Cid's inventions tend to have a unique look to them, but this was made from the same technology that allows airships to fly at great heights. It's perfectly safe!" I think I made him angry, kupo...

Quick guide on how to get them:
Buy "Sweets" from the Auction House. You can find them under "Food" -> "Meals" -> "Sweets". Find a NPC in Costume in a nation. Trade the Sweets to it, one by one, and keep trading the same Sweets till you get an item eventually. Yay, youre first item! What item you earn is said to be random, but you can not obtain the same item twice, unless you drop it. The "Sweets" that you used now, you won't be able to use it again till the next Vana'diel day. So go to the Auction House and buy another type of "Sweets". Choose another NPC in costume, and again keep trading the same Sweets to it until it gives you another item. If you keep doing this you will be able to get all 8 items. I myself did this process on 8 different NPC's and I got all items. I used Ginger Cookies, Acorn Cookies, Bubble Chocolate and Rolanberry Pie's.
Note: Some NPC's and shops also sell the "Sweets" you can use. For example, the cooking guild in Windurst. This might help you save gil. For the Cooking craft levelers.. now is a very good time to level it, since the prices seem to go up fast.
