My friend wants to have a radioactive/biohazard themed halloween party. I looked online and besides using the radioactive symbol everywhere there were not really any ideas. Does anyone have any ideas I can make or buy to make this party look cool? I already bought some black fabric and fluorescent paint to spray the symbol everywhere. Then we were going to have black lights on that. I'm doing the decorations and that's all I have so far. Thanks for any ideas.

You could get some plastic tarps (clear ones?) and splash them with paint to look like spilled chemicals/slime/blood.  Hang them haphazardly, or drape them on the ground.  You can get caution tape in most party supply stores this time of year.  Also, things like how food is displayed can make a difference.  If there's a buffet table, you could set up canisters of "hazardous materials".  Like the traditional potion bottles, but use chemistry type stuff.

Also, I know you're looking for decorations, but I have an idea for an activity as well.  Are you familiar with poi spinning?  You could make cheater poi by tying glow sticks to shoelaces, and have an amateur competition.

I have sewn for the cows and they were pleased.

Mountain Dew and anything made with tonic water should glow under backlight so that opens up some great decor opportunities with the drink table. Blue Curaao is said to glow as well, haven't personally tested that though.

There's many slime recipes online - some nice, oozy slime in thrift store vases and bowls would look great.

For more ideas try googling "mad scientist party" - I had a MS party last year and while ours was more steampunk, most online ideas I found were more toxic waste themed. Good for you, not so helpful for me at the time. Smiley

For supplies, American Science and Surplus is your cost-effective friend. Lots of fantastic labware for all your party needs!

Have a fantastic time with this party, it sound like a lot of fun! If I think of anything else I'll add to these ideas.

Home Depot is my happy place.
