About Fake Blood
This Halloween, you can easily nail the Best Costume award. All you need is a little fake blood to pull it off. If, in honor of the "Twilight"-inspired vampire craze, you plan to dress up in a classic Dracula costume, you should definitely make it as authentic as possible with a set of fangs and blood. Look for fangs that are made of dental putty, so you can mold them to your mouth's shape. Otherwise, it could be a long and uncomfortable night if you want to keep in character. Bite on the pack of fake blood between the fangs when you want to horrify fellow party-goers. For a zombie costume, look for fake blood tattoos to adorn your arms, or buy a whole pint of fake blood to splatter over your clothes. For authenticity, look for a product that flows slowly. The fake blood should be dark in color, not like ketchup, if you want to be convincing. On eBay, you can find a wide variety of fake blood products, so there is sure to be one to perfect your costume. Just remember not to get too close to any small children, unless you want to be the stuff of nightmares.
