Anyone have any ideas for decorations that are really nice looking and cheap.. thanks

answers:

Well when i went to america
a few weeks ago
I noticed that a lot of the ‘dollar stores/99 stores’ had really neat decorations and stuff

you could try there
or at your local super-mart

If you were between the ages of 10-15 what would I have to do to make you never forget this party and make you want me to throw more parties

Games:
Mummy wrap: 2 teams. One person gets a toilet paper roll and you have to wrap the other person fast until you are out of paper. First team done wins. Start with the first 2 on the team, the next team cant start until they first roll is done.

Halloween pinata.

Witch hat toss:
Get 3 cheap pointed top witch hats at the dollar store. Use something as rings -3 of them. I just used heavy paper plates and cut out the center leaving a ring. Put the hats vertical in front of each other. Have guests stand behind a line and they have 3 chances to toss the rings on the tops of the hats.

Halloween toss game
Get 3 or 4 halloween pails or witch cauldron containers, or better yet mix them up. Put the vertical in line. Put small prize toys in the pails, the toys getter better the further away. Have guests stand behind a line and they have to throw a bean bag or a halloween item into the pails. They get to pick a gift out of each bucket they toss the item into. Give them 4 tries.

Halloween pong:
Use halloween plastic cups. Line them up in front of guests on a table. Give the guests candy corn. Have a timed game seeing how many they can get into the cuts throwing them across the table.

Guessing game:
Have a jar full of candy corn or halloween candies and have papers outside the jar for guests to put their name and guess the amount. Whoever comes closest wins the jar full of candy.

THE MISERLY MAN
A Tale of Halloween Woe

Once upon a time in this very town
Lived a miserly man whose name was Brown
Alack and alas, on a Halloween night
He was terribly murdered because of spite
And ever since then he has roamed the earth
To warn and to haunt the place of his birth
Tonight we have some of his restless remains
So we’ll make you acquainted at once with his .. BRAINS
(Begin passing wet sponge)

And now your shuddering touch will know
The victim’s HAIR has continued to grow
(Pass corn silk, yarn or old wig)

He heard too well the tinkle of gold
It’s powerful EAR that now you hold
(Pass dried apple or dried peach)

His HAND is clammy, cold and still
No longer can it shoot to kill
(Pass rubber glove filled with cold oatmeal)

His EYES were small, but very keen
Though the kind deed of earth they’ve never seen
(Pass peeled grape)

He talked a lot when he was young
Now your feeling the remains of his TONGUE
(Pass a raw oyster)

He was sly and cruel from the start
So now you’ll feel his bleeding HEART
(Pass a raw piece of liver)

The TENDONS which helped his strong right arm
We pass to you, keep them from harm
(Pass some cooked spaghetti)

The meals he ate were coarse and dry
So his TEETH were strong, they never die
(Pass some dried kernels of corn)

But wait! He comes and stands within
He’s hunting for some friends or kin
Listen closely and above his moans
You’ll hear the rattle of his BONES!
(A ghost moves slowly through the darkness rattling a bunch of clothespins tied together loosely.
Exits with a moan. Lights on!)

Worm pie:
You’ll need some pie tins (1 for each person playing), gummy worms, and cool whip. Put the same amount of worms in each pie tin, (the more the better!) and cover with cool whip. Blindfold each player. Don’t tell what’s in the pie, let them be surprised to find a worm dangling from their mouths (have a camera ready).

At the word of “Go!” all players dip into the pie with their mouths, trying to pull out as many worms as they can. The person to get all the worms out of their pie wins.

This game is messy, but it’s fun for the people playing as well as for those watching! Go eat some worms. Worms are good for you, lots of protein, low in fat, and eating worms will make you popular. Bon appetite’

Other games:
Bobbing for eyeballs: Use gummy eyeballs.

Invite: Makes these or make your own using gummy body parts:

answers:

Robert asks…

Where can I find good Halloween decorations?

I’m getting ready for Halloween early and I have, literally, a box of decorations. I want to get centerpieces (i can put them together instead of just buying them premade), mantle decorations, stuff for my front porch, and everything inbetween. I don’t want cheap, plastic decorations that look tacky or are too scary. I want decorations that are like country style, maybe hay bales and little statues. Reasonable prices are better, but I don’t mind splurging a little. Any websites, stores, or ideas are great. Thanks!

answers:

Visit your local craft and fabric stores like Michael’s and JoAnn’s. They tend to put out Halloween decor earlier than anyone else to allow creative folks time to build things. I’m sure you can find your hay bales there.

Paul asks…

Halloween Party Ideas?

I’m throwing a Halloween party for me a few of my good friends. We are teenagers, but not into the crazy party scene. We will just be passing out candy to trick-or-treaters and watching movies, and maybe playing Just Dance or Karaoke or something fun like that.

So, I’m mainly looking for ideas on cute foods, but also decorations, movies, and other things to do.

answers:

Party City has some pretty affordable decorations and you can get orange and black throwaway plates at any 99 cent store (some even have Halloween decorations).

Some cute food ideas (I love the hot dog mummies)

http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/10/easy-halloween-party-food/

I love the popcorn idea too. For scary movies, you can watch things that are creepy but not too gory like Jeepers Creepers, The Ring, The Orphanage (different than the Orphan), the original Halloween, Ghostbusters is pretty funny, or just any cheesy 80s movie like Night of the Creeps, American Werewolf in London or the Howling. They’re a lot of fun.

Hope you have a good time!

James asks…

What are some good halloween costume ideas?

I am a natural red head with VERY VERY curly hair. Because my hair is so curly (and thick, and well amazing) it makes wearing a wig very hard. I want to be someone/something that has redhair that isn’t too generic (zombies, vampires, etc). What are some halloween costume ideas that would almost be strictly for a redhead? All I can think of is the little mermaid, jessica rabbit, poison ivy, and merida from brave (who actually has my hair)…

answers:

What I think you should do is look up some costume ideas yourself and maybe experiment a little bit to see if it works for you. It’s your Halloween costume and it should be all about what your personality is about and not caring what others think.

Your Questions About Halloween Fun House

What is halloween horror nights 18 Orlando like this year?

What’s the best house? Is is scary? What are some of the awesome things that I shouldn’t miss?

answers:

I went last night and it was AMAZING. Alright… So…. The best house was the creatures one becasue we were the only ones in there (no one goes there) and we went late… So the people were always after us and only us. It’s hilarious. The scare zones are fun to run around in. The Body Collecters house is amazing. The Bloody Mary house was pathetic. It was way too short and I didn’t even see bloody Mary. I even screamed bloody mary three times TWICE and nothing happened. I was rahter dissappointed. The alice in wonderland scare zone was hilarously fun adn the one by the mummy was amazing. Uhh….i dont know. Just get the express pass. Thats worth it!! Have fun!!

Helen asks…

What are some ideas for a small halloween party on a very tight budget?

I was thinking a pinata (I found ones shaped like jackolanterns) then trick or treating and then coming back to my house for pizza and snacks and to watch tv and listen to music. And for decoration maybe I could make a spider web out of white streamers and fake spiders out of pipecleaners. Any other ideas? We are all 12 n 13 btw…

answers:

Your party sounds really nice – I’m sure you and your friends will have a great time. I tried to find some ideas that were inexpensive, and easy to throw together.

James asks…

What is the point of wearing a costume for Halloween?

If I’m gonna be in the house all day and night? No one is gonna see me wear it and My parents will wonder what the hell is going on. I had a great idea planned out but if I’m not gonna be seen wearing the costume, what is the point?

answers:

The costumes are traditional. On halloween its said monsters would come out and attack you each year. The way its said people evaded the monsters was they dressed up like monsters so the monsters would think they WERE monsters. I think wearing the costume is the best part of halloween. Its fun ^J^

Your Questions About Halloween Food Games

Donald asks…

Does anyone know some some very scary Halloween games?

I am looking for scary Halloween games for my party. More specifically for teens.

answers:

This is kind of for kids, but it will totally creep them out: put out food( spaghetti,grapes or other things like that), and cover it with oil or some other thick substance. Keep the food out of view. One by one blindfold the people and take them to where the food is. As they feel it tell them things like brains, intestines, eyeballs, guts. They will get really freak out.

Lisa asks…

Is it rude to charge my friends to come to a Halloween Party at my house?

So here is the deal:
Every year I throw a Halloween party and I question wether or not I should charge them..
I supply a KEG along with bottled and canned beer, wine, liquor, jello shots, food and have some games to where they can win their money back.
I ALSO host a cash costume prize 50 for best costume 100 for best duo or group..

Do you think I’m rude for charging them to come to my house though I supply them with so much?

This isnt just a cheesy Halloween party, I decorate every room in my house including the backyard and garage..

Thoughts please?! and no need for rude answers I’m just curious.

answers:

Maybe asking for *voluntary* contributions would help you recoup your losses. After all, these people are supposed to be your “friends.”

Sandy asks…

halloween party ideas and themes?

i am cohosting a halloween party. I am going to a new school and want this party to be great. I already had some ideas like everyone bringing bags of candy and we would get those little plastic jackolanterns and fill them up with candy to the top. that is all i have. i was going to invite a lot of friends. Also we are teens

answers:

Welcome your guests with a personalized Halloween party sign.

Spider door hangings and ghost wall coverings also make a fun welcome.

Great decorations include skeleton heads and tombstones to create a spooky cemetary effect.

A neat product is a swirled streamer with a Halloween themed item attached, like black cats or jack-o-lanterns.

Hang witches with broomsticks throughout the room, as well as glow-in-the dark skeletons. See the Halloween decorating kit for a complete package of decorating ideas.

Costumes/Dress Attire

Check out these Halloween accessories including hats, masks, and costumes to help you decide your Halloween garb.

Games & Activities

Jack-o-lantern or witch pinatas are easy games that get everyone moving.

Pinatas can be filled with candy, in addition to Halloween party stickers, clackers, and other Halloween novelty items. “pass the eyeball” in a hot potato style game. Play Halloween music, and when the music stops (or a werewolf howls, etc), the person holding the eyeball is out.

Hold a Halloween karaoke contest to liven up the party.

Music

Play Halloween music to create a spooky atmosphere.

Food & Drink

Boys love this recipe:

Dish of Dirt (with creepy, crawly, gummy worms)

2 c Milk 1 pk Chocolate Pudding, instant 3 1/2 c Cool Whip 16 oz Oreos 8 Gummy Worms 8 Plastic flowers

Pour milk into medium bowl, add pudding mix. Beat until well blended, 1 -2 minutes. Crush Oreos and set aside. Let stand 5 minutes.

Stir in cool whip and half of cookies. To assemble: place 1 Tb crushed cookies in bottom of 8 oz cup. Fill cups about 3/4 full with pudding mixture.

Top with remaining crumbs. Optional garnish: place flower in middle and put gummy worm halfway out of “dirt”.

Hears a good one for girls:

Get lady fingers [thin pieces of cake that look like fingers and available at stop and shop] and take some slivered almonds and food color them red then with a dab of frosting stick it at the end of the lady fingers and you have pretty fingers!

See “yucky recipes” such as chocolate spiders, cat’s eyes, etc. [On the site I listen below]

RecipeSource.com has a free list of Halloween party recipes for more detailed recipe ideas and food preparation.

Here are a couple of sites that have a good selection of free drink recipes:

idrink.com
drink-of-the-week.com

Drinks can be served in fun light-up mugs or colorful monster mugs.

Cover each table with pumpkin and ghost tablecovers. Sport an inflatable pumpkin bowl on each table.

Halloween paper plates and napkins can be found in your local party store or are available here.

Invitations/Printables

You can create your own invitations by drawing Halloween themes such as black cats, jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, spiders, tombstones, witches, etc.

Try the website listed below and on the side there is a colomn with like party ideas , kids parties, hollidays ext. And go to holliday parties and it gives you a list of hollidays and go to Halloween.

Carol asks…

Halloween Help???? 10 points best answer?

Ok my halloween party is this friday i am freaking out i have no idea what to do.here are things i need help with. food, drinks, decorations, scary movies rated pg-13 or R, games we are 12 and 13 please no baby games. activites. thank you to all that answer

answers:

Well what i did for halloween last year….me and my cousins were at my house. My parent hid lots of plastic skeletons and eyeballs around the gardens in really hard places. We had a small touch each, obviously it was dark. After we found one skeleton/eyeball we put it in a tub and picked out a sweet or chocolate. You could add other stuff if you wanted. Like scary music or spooky decorations and fake massive spiders.

For food you could get lots of sweets and chocolate and cake and any other food you wanted and plastic plates and cups and decorate the plates in cotton wool for spider webs and stuff. Make it a eat all you want bufee. At one point when your eating you could get someone turn the power off and then put spooky music on

make everyone come in a halloween outfit, and have a contest, everyone can vote for someone with the best outfit[it can't be theirselves] then count them up and see who won. Whoever won will win a prize.

If your aload outside, on the street you could get some people to dress up or hide then pop out and scare you all. Get them to hide in trees and get then to jump down like a foot away from the. If you can think of anything else they could do you could do them.

My friend suggested these movies… ‘ scary movie 3′ and ‘the ring.’ he says their scary and 13 year olds would find them scar. Just try them anyway. And he also suggested you throw eggs at someone house???? Ookk.

HALLOWEEN GAMES

An alternative to bobbing for apples is to hang them by their stems with thread from the ceiling and let party goers try to bite them! It is actually harder than bobbing in water and it’s also more sanitary.

Great party idea, start a circle ghost story! Sit in a circle and start a scary ghost story. Each guest adds on to the story until it reaches a scary ending! For more game ideas

A good memory game for kids and adults is “Scary Objects”. Place a bunch of Halloween related objects on a tray, let everyone look then take it away. Have people write down what they remember and see who’s closest.

Halloween punch and the punch bowl its served in can be as much a decoration as it is a treat for your guests. Here’s an idea to add a very spooky effect to the way your Halloween punch is displayed. It does require that you have a clear punch bowl so that the light will shine up through the punch,

HALLOWEEN RECIPES & HALLOWEEN FOOD

Serve up a coffin shaped cake for your Halloween party goers. It woks especially well if you are having a vampire themed party.

Use clear plastic food handlers gloves to freeze ice hands to throw in the punch bowl. They keep your punch cold for a long time and look creepy floating around in it! Just make sure that you use a type of glove that has no powder or latex in it.

Instead of buying candy to hand out to friends at your Halloween party, make a batch of caramel apples, pop corn balls or other sweet treats! Home made is always better!

A tasty treat can be made using simple marshmallows, melted white chocolate and sucker sticks. Presto! Marshmallow Ghosts! Check http://www.halloweenkitchen.com/marshmallow_ghosts.html out for the rest of the recipe!

I really hope i helped you..

Robert asks…

HELP!good halloween party themes?

im going to throw a halloween party in october. i need some themes and ideas for the back drop. i dont want just a plain scary pumpkin type party theme i want somethinq Good! any suggestions pleasee?!

answers:

Mummies R Us

Throw a Halloween party with a “Mummies Only” requirement. Show mummy movies all night. Have guests try to name as many famous mummies as possible for a prize. Plan a grand unwrapping at midnight. Have a large punch bowl with “embalming fluid” for refreshments.

Masked Ball

Find or create invitations in the shape of a mask and invite friends and family to a masked ball. Tell everyone to wear a mask to get in and plan an unmasking at midnight. Have special prizes for anyone dressed like “that masked man,” Zorro or a Mexican wrestler.

Blood and Guts

Throw a zombie party for Halloween. Have guests come dressed as zombies and bring a “bloody dish” to share. Rent an inflatable projector screen and show zombie movies all night. Crown a zombie king and queen with crowns made of (rubber) thumbs and fingers.

Vampire Ball

Plan a vampire ball and require guests to come as vampires. Serve “blood sausage,” have “blood on tap” by adding red and blue food coloring to beer and test guests on their knowledge of vampire history and trivia. Play spin the bottle and have guests bite each others’ throats.

Monster Mash

Have a monster mash Halloween party. Invite all the monsters you know to come and party on Halloween, costume required. Play Halloween CDs of scary noises, haunted houses and fun Halloween music. Give people a piece of paper when they arrive with a karaoke song on it that they have to sing. Play Halloween charades or pictionary, plus traditional Halloween party games like bobbing for apples. Be sure to treat your guests to traditional Halloween goodies like caramel apples, popcorn balls and candy corn.

Haunted House

Go all out and create a haunted house for your Halloween party. Start a couple of months before the party and scavenge and scrounge for enough cardboard boxes to make walls for three or four rooms of a “haunted house.” Hang black crepe paper strips in the doorway of the entrance, have fake cobwebs for people to walk through, play scary sounds and put strobe lights in one section. Use your imagination and dream up a fun experience for everyone.

FANTASY THEME IDEAS:

– Black & Orange, Purple & Silver
– Costume Ball
– Fairies, Vampires, Werewolves, Wizards
– B Horror Movies
– Monster Footprints
– Green Pumpkins and Carved Pumpkins
– Fake Body Parts
– Sound Effects (Witches Laugh, Dracula, Ware wolfs, etc.)
– Bats, Spiders and Spider Webs

and outside is the music

does it sound like a fun party
what would you add so its not boing

answers:

That sounds fun! I would make sure the music is good and not tacky halloween music. A fog machine could also be fun… Or a bonfire if your backyard is big enough. You can get a cheap little pit at target or walmart or something… I kno it sounds lame but you could do bobbing for apples or something. But other than that it sounds good!

Your Questions About Halloween Makeup Games

Charles asks…

Maria asks…

What hair + makeup will work with my Halloween costume?

So I have a really unique costume… I’m going to be The Hunger Games book.. I’m taking a black dress and sewing pages of the book on the bottom half, and then on the top, I’m going to make a mockingjay out of cardboard and cover that with book pages and then sew it on, and then put gold glitter glue all over it.

I was wondering what hair and makeup I should do for the costume? Should I just wear regular makeup? I usually wear thin brown eyeliner on top, nude colored eyeshadow, and brown mascara only on my top lashes. (I have blue eyes and dirty blonde hair, and black look really dark so I wear brown instead)

I wash think for my hair, I could straighten it and just leave it down. I have really long hair.. About an inch from my belly button. :)

So what do you suggest for my hair and makeup? Should I go with black eyeliner on top and on bottom with gold glitter on my eyes or something? By the way, I’m 14. :)

answers:

I have to say, I love THG and I love your idea. For the makeup, you can go with fire-like colors so you’d be the girl on fire, or just simple gold eyeliner on top like Cinna. You can go with the colors of your book, like the black and gold idea that you stated. As for the hair, I would do a messy side braid like Katniss- it doesn’t matter if your hair isn’t exactly like hers, as long as it’s similar. Hope I helped :)

Daniel asks…

Are vampires real and do they have some sort of special capabilities?

I read twilight and as well as the rest of the series. do vampires really exist? do they have different capabilities? is there any i can get to know?

answers:

1. There are no real vampires. Cut and paste time, as it is too much work to type this out over and over so here goes. A brief discussion of the human digestive system and then the probable vampire population given an exponential growth rate should explain why vampires are not possible.
2. Vampires do not exist. Period. The human body is not designed to process large amounts of blood for nutrition. There is not enough protein, carbohydrates, and fats present in blood to maintain a complex creature such as Homo Sapiens or any theorized offshoot mutations. When a human ingests food it is first broken up by chewing, then churned up in the stomach with digestive juices to form a bolus called chyme. It then passes into the small intestine where it mixes with bile salts which continue breaking it down on a molecular basis, mostly affecting fats at this point. The broken down nutrients pass through the wall of the intestines and into the bloodstream where they are carried to each cell or stored for later use. Indigestible bulk continues through the intestines, turning a dark brown from the bile. Water is absorbed from this mass in the large intestine depending on the needs of the body – a well-hydrated person will usually have a softer stool than a dehydrated person will. Water also enters the bloodstream, and this is what helps to maintain blood pressure. The pressure tends to balance itself in a healthy person because the bloodstream goes through a formation in the kidney called the Loop of Henle, where the narrowing blood vessel forces excess water and cellular waste such as urea out through the cellular wall into the kidneys, where it is excreted through the ureters into the bladder, and then out of the body via the urethral passageway.

3. IMPORTANT – A person physically unable to process his own food for nutrition therefore also could not process blood – it’s the same process. Ingested blood does not transmit directly to the veins anyway – it would be chemically broken down by the digestive system.

4. Theoretical ingestion of blood to supply these nutrients would therefore have to occur at least once a day, and would require the ingestion of the entire blood supply which could not happen as the stomach is far too small to hold that much liquid volume. Furthermore, such a mass would be difficult to pass thru the intestines as it has no fibrous bulk, would create an intestinal impaction, causing massive vomiting from the large concentration of iron present, and any “real” vampire would have to eventually expel the waste, which would come out as a black, tarry, smelly goo.

5. These humans that affect the whole “vampiric lifestyle” are NOT vampires. They are simply humans playing their own little game, in their own little fantasy world, usually pandering to their own little sexual fetish, which may or may not actually be sexual. I too, play my own little game, in the SCA, but mine is a game where the deeds that I do are determined by the strength of my arm and sword – I am a warrior, with just as much skill and ability as any warrior of ancient times. The difference is that I am claiming to be something physically possible: a warrior, and I prove it everytime I strap on my armor and walk onto a SCA battlefield. The so-called “vampires” are claiming to be something physically impossible: a walking corpse, and all they prove is that black Victorian clothing, a pair of false fangs, and a little makeup make for a good Halloween costume – it does not make you a vampire.

6. Even if a vampire feeds once a week, and his victim also becomes a vampire, that is exponential growth, with four iterations a month. First iteration: One makes one, total two. Second iteration: Two make two, total four. Third iteration: Four make four, total eight. Fourth iteration: Eight make eight, total sixteen. 16 vampires at the end of one month, 256 at the end of the second month, 4096 by the end of the third month, 65,536 by the end of the fourth month, 1,048,476 at the end of the fifth, and 33,572,832 vampires at the end of half a year! Do the math – vampires are a mathematical impossibility. This falls therefore, under the logic of Occam’s Razor – which states that when you have removed every impossible answer, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. Since there is no “vampiric plague” swarming the earth, the logical deduction is that they don’t exist.

7. Point of clarification about “vampire” bats: vampire is simply the name we have given them because they do drink blood, same as a flea, mosquito, or spider. Are these creatures vampires? No. They are living creatures, not legendary monsters. Drinking blood does not make you a vampire anymore than eating raw meat makes you a werewolf, although it might make you a mosquito.

8.The humans who profess to be vampires are victims of an all-encompassing self induced delusion. They are as human as you or I, regardless of their claims, and if they ingest HIV tainted blood they can most certainly contract the disease, esp. If they have any cuts, sores, or lesions in and or around their mouth. It is a very dangerous delusion to be laboring under. Note that there is absolutely no scientific or medical proof that these people derive any benefit at all from the ingestion of blood, and even worse are the so-called “psychic” vampires, because their delusion is one that they cannot substantiate with any concrete evidence at all.

Mary asks…

Where is a good place to contact a REAL vampire?

I’ve just always wanted to contact a REAL vampire. I want to basically ask some questions for my book, and I am also beginning to question if I myself am a vampire as well. Please do not yell at me. I believe in vampires. If you yourself are a vampire, please tell me! I’d love to talk to you!

answers:

Here is truth – read and understand.
1. Vampires, defined as a humanoid being that MUST consume blood or energy to survive do not exist. Cut and paste time, as it is too much work to type this out over and over and I “recycle” my own answers instead of retyping them so here goes. A brief discussion of the human digestive system and then the probable vampire population given an exponential growth rate should explain why vampires are not possible.

2. The human body is not designed to process large amounts of blood for nutrition. There is not enough protein, carbohydrates, and fats present in blood to maintain a complex creature such as Homo Sapiens or any theorized offshoot mutations. When a human ingests food it is first broken up into a bolus by chewing, then churned up in the stomach with digestive juices to form a mass called chyme. It then passes through the pylorus into the duodenum, part of the small intestine where it mixes with bile salts and secretions from the pancreas and liver which continue breaking it down on a molecular basis, mostly affecting fats at this point. The broken down nutrients pass through the wall of the intestines and into the bloodstream where they are carried to each cell or stored for later use. Indigestible bulk continues through the intestines, turning a dark brown from the bile.

4. Theoretical ingestion of blood to supply these nutrients would therefore have to occur at least once a day, and would require the ingestion of the entire blood supply which could not happen as the stomach is far too small to hold that much liquid volume. Hold up your clenched fist – under normal conditions your stomach is about that size. Furthermore, such a mass would be difficult to pass thru the intestines as it has no fibrous bulk, would create an intestinal impaction, causing massive vomiting from the large concentration of iron present, and any “real” vampire would have to eventually expel the waste, which would come out as a black, tarry, smelly goo, just as stool does when blood is present from a upper GI bleed.
5. These humans that affect the whole “vampiric lifestyle” are NOT vampires. They are simply humans playing their own little game, in their own little fantasy world, usually pandering to their own little sexual fetish, which may or may not actually be sexual. I too, play my own little game, in the SCA, but mine is a game where the deeds that I do are determined by the strength of my arm and sword – I am a warrior, with just as much skill and ability as any warrior of ancient times.

By way of comparison, there are currently approximately 33 million people who have HIV/AIDS and the disease is a world-wide epidemic. I see people every day in the hospital with AIDS, but never has there been one documented case of a vampire attack. Do the math – vampires are a mathematical impossibility.

As for the idea that vampires existed “a long time ago” consider the estimated global population 5,000 years ago – using the above mathematical rationale, a single vampire could have converted every human on the globe in less than six months. This falls therefore, under the logic of Occam’s Razor – which states that when you have removed every impossible answer, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. Since there is no “vampiric plague” swarming the earth, the logical deduction is that they don’t exist.

7. Point of clarification about “vampire” bats: vampire is simply the name we have given them because they do drink blood, same as a flea, mosquito, leech, or spider. Are these creatures vampires? No. They are living creatures, not legendary monsters. They can subsist on blood because of their smaller size and proportionately larger stomach volume. Drinking blood does not make you a vampire anymore than eating raw meat makes you a werewolf, although it might make you a mosquito.

8.The humans who profess to be vampires are victims of an all-encompassing self induced delusion. They are as human as you or I, regardless of their claims, and if they ingest HIV tainted blood they can most certainly contract the disease, esp. If they have any cuts, sores, or lesions in and or around their mouth. It is a very dangerous delusion to be laboring under. Note that there is absolutely no scientific or medical proof that these people derive any benefit at all from the ingestion of blood, and even worse are the so-called “psychic” vampires, because their delusion is one that they cannot substantiate with any concrete evidence at all.

9. There is no “vampire” gene. People are not “born” as vampires. When a woman goes to the hospital for prenatal care there are many tests done on mother and child, even while still in the womb, to check for many things, including genetic anomalies that result in deformities and birth defects. If such a gene existed, in today’s world with today’s technology it would have been found – we have already completely sequenced the human genome. It would also have to follow Mendel’s law of dominant/recessive gene theory. Again, the odds on that many “vampires” all escaping the notice of the medical/scientific community are so low as to be almost nonexistent. The idea that there is a global “vampire community” engaging in controlled breeding to keep the “bloodline pure” is delusional in the extreme.

10. There is no “vampire virus” – as I have already pointed out, HIV is a virus, and look at how fast it has spread – virtually everyone knows someone with the affliction. According to the “vampire websites” there are “thousands” of vampires running around. If that was so then at least one of them has ended up in a hospital for bloodwork when they became pregnant, had a bloodborne infection, was injured in a car wreck, etc, etc, ad nauseum. The anomaly would have been detected and medical science would have isolated it, studied it, applied for research grants on it, published papers on it, and turned it into the talk of the medical and scientific community, as well as making its “discoverers” celebrities and rich beyond their dreams. A virus cannot alter your DNA in such a radical fashion without killing you.

Halloween Costume Advice……Anyone……..?

I’m want to make “the big bad wolf” costume. Any ideas where I can get tips ?Or ideas of your own? Websites with pictures that I can look at would be Wonderful !! What about make-up tips?

answers:

Try buycostumes.com for an example.

I would suggest buying a mask and claws, then using old clothes for the rest of the costume. They mostly show pictures of a wolf with a plaid flannel long sleeved shirt, a pair of jeans or old work pants, and some black boots.

If you mean the wolf from little red riding hood, just get a wolf mask and wear a bed gown with slippers.

Sandra asks…

Halloween costume ideas?

I love Halloween but I don’t like spending a lot of money, also since i’m 18 the only time i really wear a costume is at school and a couple parties. So I was wondering if anyone had some good costume ideas that are either cheap or could be put together with stuff most people have around the house. I have fangs but I don’t want to be a vampire again, unless anyone has ideas of how to make it different and to spice it up. I’m a girl but I don’t want the slutty costumes either. Also it technically has to be “appropriate” for school, so no masks, hats, or weapons, but if there’s a way to still make it scary i’d love that. Also I don’t mind face paint or makeup but keep in mind I’m not that artistically gifted so it’d have to be simple. Any ideas, please?! Thanks!

Your Questions About Halloween Contacts

Susan asks…

What Halloween costumes can I wear with black contacts?

Okay, so I REALLY want to wear black sclera contacts this halloween, but I don’t know what costume would go with them. I keep searching for ideas and all I get are Twilight rantings! I’m a short, skinny, brunette, female college student, and I really don’t want to look like a whore…! Any fun ideas?? Thanks!!!

answers:

Do oyu remember the show buffy the vampire slayer?
Whenever a character turned evil, theyre eyes would turn black
you could go as a demon the show (:

William asks…

Whats the correct power to have my halloween contacts lenses?

i just got them today and i have the power on -3.00 is that good?

answers:

Did you see an eye doctor to get fitted for contact lenses before purchasing? I hope so, contact lenses aren’t just something you can buy and wear around like hat or something. It’s medical thing that you need an accurate prescription for. Either some people don’t know this or they think theatrical lenses like yours are different.

If your asking about what it would be as far as visual acuity like 20/20, 20/40…that type of thing. About 20/400 according to this website:

James asks…

Where Would I Find Halloween Contacts With Out A Prescription?

I was wondering so i could get them fast and cheep!
I live in Iowa.. So in that state?

answers:

The little wig stores owned by usually asian proprietors use to sell them when they were really popular and cheap. I think they still do. I was in Houston last spring and saw some there.

Mandy asks…

do halloween stores sell all black contacts cheap?

I want to get some all black contacts for halloween but there really expensive. Does anybody know where I can get them for free?

answers:

You generally have to order those online. Beware though, you don’t know where they are coming from nor the quality. I don’t think I would put anything in my eyes I bought over the internet.

Carol asks…

Where can I find prescription halloween contacts? I can only find the non-prescription kind…?

I’m looking for some nice purple unrealistic contacts for my halloween costume (fairy) and i want unrealistically purple eyes, maybe with some yellow or other color as well. I can find some really cool ones that i wouldn’t mind getting, but i can’t find any in prescription. please let me know if you know where i can find the prescription kind, thank you!

answers:

Have you tried any of your local opticians? Many of them do prescription contact lenses and some may even do fancy/coloured ones as well under prescription.

One web site that you may find useful as well is www.vampfangs.com. I had ordered from them some time back but stopped since import tax costs were a pain (I’m in the UK). They have an amazing range in high quality and do many of their lenses in prescription form. Just contact them about what you’re after and check the site out (I didn’t have to as I was ordering from abroad but if you’re in the US I think they require specific details before they will sell you them).

Good luck, I hope you manage to get hold of the ones you’re after.

Your Questions About Halloween Decorations Outside

Richard asks…

What holidays/seasons do you redecorate for?

I only go all out for Christmas because it’s too exhausting. On Halloween night, I put a few pumpkins outside.

answers:

I understand what you mean, it is exhausting!

I decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Nothing crazy, just a few decorations here and there.

Laura asks…

Is it lame that I put out the Christmas decorations today?

It was 60 degrees — figure now or never. I have only decorated about 2x in the past 10 years — and this year I have Mickey Mouse and Snoopy on the roof, lol.

answers:

No, it makes sense to do this when the weather is good. It is, after all, after Halloween, so I don’t consider that too early. It’s not like you have to light them up yet. My brother won’t let my sister-in-law put out any of her Christmas decorations, inside or outside, until after Thanksgiving. I say, fine, if he wants to be the one putting up all the lights and decorations outside when it’s cold and snowy (especially on the roof). Mickey Mouse and Snoopy – that’s cool! Next year you can add Pluto and Charlie Brown. Every year you could add a couple more. Just leave room for Santa and Rudolph! ; )

Steven asks…

Why are people getting so easily offended these day?

I saw a story how a guy hung a noose outside his home as a Halloween decoration and of course someone get’s offended and cries racism. Now I found out that some lady is getting in trouble over a Halloween custom that depicted a black person.

Seriously, has it ever crossed anyones mind that maybe when people do these things they don’t mean any offense or harm by it? But no, someone is always gonna cry racism.

answers:

They are getting offended because the media feeds the frenzy. If you are distracted by the media promoting racial division, you cannot be concerned about real news issues. If we are divided we cannot unite and take a real look at what is going on around us. Crooked politicians, etc.

The sheeple love racial tension and celebrity gossip.

Is it inappropriate to post a sign that says Trick or Treating for 13 and under only?

I am currently off work due to a medical condition and have very little money coming in. I believe that Trick or Treating is for young kids. If older kids, and even college age adults are coming there is less for the kids. There are a lot of parties and events for the older kids/young adults.

answers:

Perhaps, due to your particular situation, you just might want to sit out this Halloween. There’s nothing wrong with not participating. Just make sure all your outside lights and decorations are not on. Concentrate on taking care of yourself this year. Take Care and Bright Blessings!

Joseph asks…

Considering the economy, are you planning on having a less materialistic Christmas this year?

Yes, I know, I’m asking before Halloween. Sue me.

answers:

Yes. Not only in the gifting part of Christmas but also on other aspects of it as well. We usually spend a great deal of money on decorating our home for Christmas. We are going “green” this Christmas. All natural decorations made from things we find outside our home. We are very fortunate to live in a heavily treed area (the county we live in is named Forest County) so we will have a large amount of greenery and natural berries and other things to help decorate our home this year. I feel it will be good for the kids to learn that the Holiday season is not just about gifts. 90% of my Christmas shopping is done already, each of our children will receive one large gift, a couple small things to open and their stockings full of treats and that is it. I have seen that buying tons of gifts for them to open just makes them appreciate the things they did get even less. They become bored with opening the gifts if they are given too many, in my experience with my children (who are all under 5). This year for our family and friends we are doing gift cards, I am tired trying to buy things for everyone and then having them return it or never use it. Saves time and money, usually we buy everyone a couple gifts and end up spending $100+ on everyone we buy for, a $50 gift card is much a much better gift than something they will not use. For our parents we are giving them Bed & Breakfast Getaways, relaxation is always a great gift compared with loads of hunting gear or small kitchen appliances. This decision has less to do with the economy and more about being tired of the season being all about “how much you spend”.

Your Questions About Halloween Costumes For Kids

Ruth asks…

What can we dress 4 babies/toddlers up as for Halloween?

We have 4 kids, and are looking for unique Halloween costumes. Last year we only had 2 so we dressed them up as a taco and a hot sauce packet. We’ve come up with doing crayons in a box, dressing the kids up as different colored crayons then making a wagon into the box. Another idea is doing a king sized candy bar. Any other ideas??

answers:

Super heroes are always fun!
Also Yo Gabba Gabba…

However the bug costumes are my personal favorite!

George asks…

What is a good, cheap, easy to make Halloween costume?

I need a Halloween costume that is easy to make, cheap and good. Please nothing lame like a leaf blower that is a hat with a leaf taped on to it so when people ask what it is I blow on the leaf.

answers:

LMFAO! WHAT?!

I think that costumes should be scary, it’s tradition.
Pirate costume is easy to make.
Vampires are getting overrated thanks to twilight. But it’s also easy.
A bloody surgen.
All you need is:
scrubs, spray red ink/paint/blood…if you must all over it(KIDDING CHILL OUT).
(you can get them SUPER cheap at most thrift stores)
The mask, which you can get free from a doctor. Put some “blood” on it as well.
Stethoscope, got kids? Take it from their doctor play kit.
People with high blood pressure usually have real ones at home though.
And some sort of bloody knife/tool.
You could even be a butcher,
You just need an apron, possibly a mask, and a bloody tool.
Zombies are always fun! Spray your skin green, rip up old clothes…well that costume varys.

Chris asks…

What should my kids be for halloween?

I have a daughter who is 2 and a step daughter who is 6… I need to get them both Halloween costumes and I am not sure what they should be. My step daughter wants to be a “Super fairy Princess monster” and I don’t think they make that in a costume LOL. Any suggestions?
BQ: What should my husband and I be for halloween? I am 8 months pregnant with twins so that is pretty hard to hide. :)
Thanks!

answers:

Allot of stores sell Halloween themed princess dresses or pretty looking vampire dresses, you could get them for your daughters. Your husband could could be a vampire, warwolf, skeleton etc, and i’d suggest a good costume for you is a pumpkin :)

Thomas asks…

How well did the men eat on PIRATE ships?

I’ve been thinking about pirates more than usual lately, since Sept. 19 was “Talk Like a Pirate Day” (I’m not kidding! LOL) and since all the party stores already have their Halloween costumes out, and pirates are among the most popular, as usual.

Anyhoo, I got to wondering: how well did the captain and crew on pirate ships eat? And what did they actually eat? Somehow I guess none of this ever occurred to me. Did they usually have a “cook” who prepared the meals, or did everyone kind of do his own thing? Or perhaps it varied widely, depending on the standards of the captain and/or the number of his crew?

answers:

Pirate ships had cooks. Much of the time food was awful because they didn’t have refrigeration. Hard tack is biscuits that are REALLY hard and often had maggots in them. They had salted meat (not always in good condition) and since water was sometimes polluted, they drank a lot of rum or other alcohol. They seldom ate fresh food or vegetables.

Michael asks…

How to make a Halloween costume for my kids?

I was wondering if someone has an easy and quick how to make a costume for my kids pattern. I am looking for a classic witch costume and a devil costume for my kids for Halloween. I would like to use things that I already have in my house or that are relatively inexpensive(CHEAP!) to purchase and could be reused for regular kid play after that. I am not a seamstress by far but I do have access to a sewing machine and my mom IS an excellent seamstress so I am sure she would help if needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

answers:

I know how to sew a little….but when I make my kids costumes I just put random things together. For your daughter…..see if you can find a black dress or a long black skirt and just cut up the bottom of it and then add a layer underneath it (just stitched in) that is maybe black tulling or a sheer fabric or even a green or purple you would only need a yard of fabric. Then go for a top that you can easily manipulate as far as cutting or what not goes. You can pick up stalkings and a hat ect. At the store. Try shopping at the thrift store or a second hand store and you could easliy pick up these items for $.50-$1 a piece. ANd then just let you imagination flow the same way for the devil costume. Look online at some pictures of costumes you like and then go piece by piece to try and recreate them…..even if the costume is one piece doesn’t mean your can’t be 2 or 3. One of the reasons I like doing this is becasue the costume is one of a kind not to mention you get bragging rights and it is fun. You can also get your kids involved with some of the smaller details depending on their age. Hope I helped and best of luck!
