When you have a great costume, you really do not want to settle for non-realistic blood, but Halloween blood is easy to make and there are a lot of Halloween blood out there that is pretty realistic and can pass for real blood especially in the dark. Everyone loves to dress up and play with Halloween blood that is after all what’s so great about the holiday. But if you do not think you can get realistic Halloween blood anywhere that is around you than you can always learn how to make your own Halloween blood and since it lasts a long time when properly stored you can make it ahead of time and have it ready to use when you need it.
When you set out to make or buy zombie blood than you should get the edible kind just to be on the safe side since it will be close to your mouth. Using gel capsules are good for the effect of blood spilling out of the mouth and the blood should be darker too since zombies are dead then it goes to reason that zombie blood would be old. But you can always mix the two colors of blood to make a great zombie blood scene. The older color of zombie blood for what’s been oozing of it and the newer and fresher blood of its victim. This will give an awesome realistic effect to your costume and Halloween haunt.
