If you don't have time to go to the store, try making fake blood for your costume. If you need a lot of it, this might actually be a cheaper way to get it then to buy a bunch of those little packs.

You'll need...
1 cup of corn syrup.
1/8 cup hot water.
red food colouring.
blue food colouring.
milk.
a bowl.

Step by Step:
1. Stir the syrup and water in a bowl.
2. Add red food colouring to the mix. Stir in some blue colouring, too , to make the mixture more real-looking.
3. Add some milk to make the mixture less transparent and more real.

i've actually been browsing for a way to make fake blood...its an idea fro mthe movie gingersnaps (about werewolves) if you've never seen it and you're into cult films...you have to watch it...

now to my question: how much red and blue do you use per 1/8 cup of corn syrup? i've always had problems with the color orientation

Hm. Might have to check that movie out.

I'm not sure what the amount of colouring is. I'd just experiment a bit until the colour seems right.

This is a great recipe that I have used in many stage productions - it is edible and it washes out of almost anything!

equal parts light karo syrup and peanut butter (smooth)
mix until creamy
add HOT water until you get the right consistency
add red food coloring until it is red not pink
one drop of blue food coloring

The peanut oil helps it from staining  Wink
