Halloween is one of those holidays that certain people can really get into. Maybe it's the excuse to wear whatever you want, the chance to experiment with new makeup, or the one time a year that you actually watch horror movies. Whatever it is, we've got your needs covered with these 10 awesome products to get your hands on this Hallow's Eve.
Nothing says 'party to the death' quite like a skull-shaped bottle of booze and matching skull-shaped shot glasses. Whether you're mixing up your own concoction or keeping things simple, guests at any Halloween party will be impressed with the lengths you've gone to feel festive. Post holiday, you can still appreciate the set year round, what with its hand-made originality and unique aesthetic.
While shot glasses say 'share', this party drink blood bag quite literally has just your name on it. Fill it with wine (or, you know, any clear hard liquor and red food coloring) and you'll not only have an awesome prop for your costume, but a functional (and unbreakable) drink holder as well. Even better, there's a syringe included for fast filling the bag — though we're thinking that makes for some pretty perfect shots (pun intended).
We all love to make an entrance to the party, and walking through a mysterious mist is all part of the plan. With this portable party fog machine, you can take the fog from one party to the next, and reap the rewards from a distance with the remote control. Simply fill fog fluid into the tank, wait just a few minutes, and bam, you've got unscented, non-toxic fog on the fly.
We've all seen those award-winning pumpkins. You know, the ones that are so ridiculously ornate that they put our goofy-tooth smiley pumpkin to shame. Luckily, there's this 12-piece professional pumpkin carving tool kit. Between all the cuts, scoops, scrapes, saws, and loops you'll be able to make, you'll be a carving whiz in no time at all.
If you'd rather swap your pumpkin carving for a little extra time drinking, we don't blame you. In fact, we support it 100% with this pumpkin tap kit. Made of brass with a chrome finish (and ridiculously easy to assemble) you can use this tap to turn your pumpkin into a keg — filled, of course, with whatever you please. Just make sure you scoop out the insides first.
Sure, you've already got some speakers. But do you have Halloween party appropriate speakers? This portable bluetooth speaker doubles as Halloween Decor, and pumps out tunes with colored lights and ghost sounds, just in case Michael Jackson needs a little extra background talent when Thriller comes on.
A Nightmare on Elm Street: Collection
It isn't really Halloween without a good horror movie, and A Nightmare on Elm Street is a classic. If you don't plan on partying, you can certainly tuck in for a scream-fest with this collection, which includes all seven Nightmare films plus a bonus disc. If you're settling in for the long haul, you may want to invite a few friends.
For something a little lighter (read: a lot less scarier), Disney's Hocus Pocus is a timeless classic. We loved it when we were ten and we're still loving it now — the talking black cat, three witches, and foul-mouthed zombie certainly never lost their stride.
There are few times of year that one can get away with wearing glow stick bracelets, and Halloween is one of them. This pack of 100 8" sticks stay lit for 8-12 hours (kind of like you) and includes 100 connectors so you can get creative with decor or pass out the party favors.
You've gotta love Mexico's eerily beautiful Day of the Dead decor, and this wine holder is the perfect addition to any collection. Whether you're a merlot, pinot, or cab sauv fan, this holder can handle them all. Plus, it's equally good for stashing whiskey, beer, coke, or any other beverage bottle, making it a great gift for pretty much anyone.
To finish the list, we're ending with yet another classic. Scream is the horror film that we've had nightmares about for decades, and it's still as good as ever. Grab this box set of DVDs so you can pull an all-night marathon of Scream, Scream 2, and Scream 3. It's not like you're going to be able to sleep anyways.
