    Default Favorite Blood

    So this year i am going as a zombie cop, a somewhat fresh one. This is my first year working with fx makeup, I have my scar wax on order, bought liquid latex and grease paints. But I'm unsure on blood. I was going to buy Ben Nye Blood but its a liittle high. I thought about just buying blood from a halloween store but I know nothing about blood and want my costume to look good. I will have a large wound above my eye, one one my jaw ( with exposed bone). My throat ripped out, bullet holes in my chest , arms , and legs with big exit wound and scrapes. Plus I'm going to rip up my costume( which is a lil sad because I made it from scratch) So I need a lot of blood on me and on my clothes. Ive read some homemade blood recipies but Kayro syrup is real Sticky to wear all night. So anyone have any suggestions that have worked for them?

    I usually make my own from corn syrup and food coloring, however, I've found "Bottle of blood" to be the best looking off the shelf fake blood yet. You can thicken it with flour or corn starch to get a real scabby look.

    If you got 7 bucks buy Bottle of Blood , but you have to have blood paste. That stuff is the best , it doesn't dry up like liquid blood. It's dark and nasty looking , it has a wet look to it. It's a must have for realistic looking cuts .

    I swear by my gelatin and koolaide mixture. Pics in my profile it holds up good then I buy a small thing of "thick blood" for a wetter look in a few areas. On my clothing I use pain acrylic paint from craft store brick red for dry and another red for fresh bleeding look...
    I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.

    I just made up a batch of the MB2 stage blood. It looks very good and doesn't have any sugary stuff.

    If you don't care if it stains and doesn't come off for days...
    Don't laugh, under colored and black lights it's shiny, goopy, shimmers in a creepy way... When the light hits it suddenly its striking!!!! Ready for it? Strawberry Daquiri mix (almost any brand). For a haunt it's spectacular. Wanna get it out? FORGET IT! But it is the most amazing high visibility oozing colored light blood substitute! We've used it in several short films to great effect. In normal light its silly. But color it and its creepy cool!

    Ps: We did a scene with my wife as a horror midwife and it took three days for the color to wash off her hands...lol. So Be warned... cait
