I took my youngest child, seven year old boy, shopping for his Halloween costume and after looking around a bit, he picked a Zombie costume. As we walked to the fitting rooms, he noticed a Vampire costume and decided to try it on as well. After trying them on, he was so excited about both costumes that he wanted to bring them both home. I said, no, to please pick only one. After careful thought and consideration, he announced to me, and all the other people in line waiting for a fitting room, that he was going to be a "Zomvamp" for Halloween. Puzzled at his public announcement, I asked, "what is a Zomvamp?" to which he replied, "a combination of Zombie and Vampire, see mommy, you have to get me both!". What's a mommy to do?? of course I got him both! my little "Zomvamp"!
I've mentioned before that I don't like "gory" stuff on Halloween, however, every now and then I'm inspired to make something gory. Like this necklace, for example:
If you want to make your own bloody necklace, here's how I made it:
First, draw on a scrap piece of paper, droopy blood and place a glass on top. You can borrow a glass from one of your picture frames: Don't forget to make circles on each side to pull the ribbon through to hold it.
You can also use some of the tacky stuff to adhere it to a mirror or PC monitor:
You can find it at your local hardware store or Target or Walmart:
Hope you liked this creepy bloody Halloween necklace and may your day be filled with fright.
