I've been feeling kind of depressed since yesterday.

I feel like Halloween came and went without being very Halloween-y. It's the first time in 17 years that i have not worn a costume. Our school didn't let us dress up this year and Halloween was on a Wednesday. We also had almost no trick or treaters come to our door.  I love Halloween yet i haven't done anything. Sad


I'm having a scary movie party on Sat. and i need help making it more Halloween-y, only because i need a pick me up. have any ideas? I figured we would just watch movie and stuff so i figured that costumes would get in the way, therefore they weren't required. I'll probably order pizza for the main dish, but what about other stuff? i need easy recipes and decorating ideas. Also any movies we have to watch?

Also because of my Halloween depression i have decided to try and wear something more Halloween-y. I figured a zombie was pretty easy. I'll just do my face or something, so it doesn't get in the way too much. I want it to look realistic, but i don't know how to go about it as because I've never done anything like that before. I need all the advice you can give on this one. Cheesy thanks so much.

p.s. do you think i can still get stuff from the Halloween stores?


I don't like when Holidays don't feel the same anymore. Sad I don't wanna grow up.


Happy day after Halloween!

I know how you feel, even though i did dress up and have a bunch of fun on halloween night, IT ENDS TOO SOON.

About the zombie make-up, this year i went as a zombie and a good way to make some cool effects like hanging off skin or chunky blood is to use a mix of gelatin and glycerin. When it drys it turns clear and you can put make-up or fake blood over it. (heres what my friend and i looked like, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205430.new;topicseen#new)


Good halloween movies: The lost boys, Halloween (or course), Dawn of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead...thats all i can think of right now...

oh you've got it made!  Halloween stores have mega sales right now - run don't walk to the nearest one and get your halloween on!

jello is easy to make weird stuff with and comes in many strange colors

also food coloring is your friend - you can make any food a weird color easily

fake blood - karo syrup and red and blue food coloring= sticky drippy blood - also tasty!
