Here are some thrifty yet spook-tastic Halloween decoration ideas for those who are having a party. The best part of a Halloween party, second only to the spooky costumes, is the decorations. Sadly, not all of us can afford whatever we fancy from Fright Catalogue, so here are some of my well-used tips for creating an eery atmosphere for your guests. Enjoy!
For the record, I've put a lot of effort into writing this. Please, if you decide to share it elsewhere, credit me or be doomed to suffer my eternal sweetly spooky wrath.
1. If possible, use dim lighting in the bathroom (if you only have the one light, leave it off and either put candles in a place where they are unlikely to get knocked over, or use glow sticks - see number 2). Use ordinary, cheap fake blood in a squeezy bottle, and pour a straight line across the top of your mirror. It will drip down and look wicked, plus it will still leave enough mirror space for your guests to re-apply fangs/make up and straighten horns/wings. If you have enough blood, a gory bath and/or shower can also be fun, especially if you have a fake body part to add to the mix.

Let me know if you use any of my ideas. Pictures are also fun! (Vaguely thinking of adding this to my website-in-the-making, so any pictures would rock).
Enjoy :) (cross-posted to my own community, sweetly_spooky, and to my personal journal. )
