New Poogie & Handler Costume
When you go to Seliana for the first time after downloading the Sizzling Spice Fest update you will notice that your Poogie and Handler both look a bit different. Both NPCs are dressed for the occasion with rose themed costumes. If you have the Serious Handler you will not see the outfit shown above (she states it is not her thing). As for the Poogie you will find it in the Eggsotic clothing specific to this event. If you wish to change Poogie’s costume at any time simply interact with it and select the Change Clothes option.

The Gathering Hub is Decorated for the Sizzling Spice Fest
The last part of the Sizzling Spice Fest I will highlight is that the Gathering Hub has been decorated for the occasion. The room is very festive and boasts a number of costumed palicos and ladies. Each palico and lady is dressed in a style that matches the theme of the event which is a tropical beach vibe. Alongside the Gathering Hub decorations there is also an event specific platter called the Sizzling Spice Platter which you can purchase from the Canteen.
