Beware the weasel....

I was hoping we'd have a spooky Halloween B&B challenge, but since we're not, and I still want to show off....

Halloween soap!


I'm most proud of the one on the left.  It's my first wine soap.

Made with Two Buck Chuck, of course.  I call the fragrance "wine cellar"--it's a blend of merlot, musk, blackberry and dirt* FOs.  Honestly, the boyfriend and I think it's kind of stinky.  But other people like it, so, who's to judge?
It's "Cask of Amontillado" themed, hence the weird embed... I was hoping it would look like a cell window, but instead it kind of looks like piano keys.  Eh.  Nobody's perfect.


And Frankincensinstein.  Made with chunks of recycled soap... of course.  (I wish I could say I thought of frankincense + Frankenstein myself, but it was suggested by a 12-year-old girl at a show.)

The bath bomb isn't anything special, really.  Just fang-marked for Dracula, scented with Victorian (gothic) rose.


(Though I made a matching one in glitter for Twilight.  Couldn't resist.)


Those are my silly Halloween soaps!  It was such a fun collection to make.  I'm already plotting out next year's....

C&C welcomed!

Made me laugh out loud, and if it had been a bit later I have spilled my wine (soap); lovely!

I love the look of you Frankincensinstien but I really love the idea of "wine cellar" plus the Cask of Amontillado is one of the favorite short stories:)

Those all look fantastic Cheesy For a bit of added "Cheese" I think you should put a drop of red food coloring on each of the bite marks Cheesy

Ha, I thought about that!  The only downside is that adding liquid to the bomb at that point would make it fizz and boil out of those little pock marks (the mark of a distinctly unsexy kind of vampire).  I wonder if there's a way to add dry color there....

If you add an herb-infused oil that gives a red colour, I don't think there would be any fizzing.

A little bit of red glycerine soap ontop, maybe ? If the oil doesn't work.

Which herbs would you recommend for a red infusion, dreads?  I've used paprika in soap before, but it comes out more salmon-colored than red.  (maybe henna?)
