    I got help from Otaku - here's the link to the thread for the build (I started this back in 2009, and then ended up not using it until now! )
    I am not mechanically inclined at all, so the monster guts motor power pack with the quick connect was super easy and works for all sort of setups...

    None of my videos look good of this, I really need to get a better camera.

    Last year, I acquired a sterile, empty IV bag and tubing. I carefully filled the bag with vodka and added red food coloring. It looked just like a unit of blood (creepy, I know). I hung the whole aparatus on an IV pole. I would unclamp the IV tubing and fill a partygoers glass. I had a chemistry set on my bar to add to the effect.

    FG...thanks for the link, and hopefully hubby will help me figure this out. I checked out the site for the parts, didn't see the quick connect, but we have time to figure this out.

    Great ideas as always. We replace all lights with black light bulbs in some rooms and used all red light bulbs in others. The red was pretty cool especially for an all adult party, we decorated the red room with blood splatters fake knifes and razors it was pretty creepy. Can anyone post or reply where they got their IV bags and IV pole I just love that idea

    The Jello syringes were a HUGE hit at my party last year. I am definitely going to have to buy more of those this year, the amount I bought was not enough and everyone kept asking for more. And mine were not even alcoholic! A lot of my guests were underage so instead of "shots" mine were just a mix of of jello mixed with juices and clear sodas like Sprite (to make them 'sparkling') but they were delicious and everyone loved the idea. I may also get some jello molds this year so people can just eat the jello too when we run out of syringes.

    RE: IV bags and IV poles.
    You can find both on Amazon. Just Google "Empty IV bags". If you know someone in the medical field, particularly a hospital pharmacist, these items are fairly easy to obtain (although IV poles wouldn't really apply to the pharmacy). The hospital pharmacist uses EMPTY, STERILE, IV bags to admix medications. I do not recommend anything other than empty and sterile for obvious safety reasons. If you are crafty enough, you can make your own IV pole out of electrical conduit (Lowes/Home Depot).

    What worked out well for me was to take the day off before party day so I could prep food. Then used crock pots the day of to serve the food. Kept it all fairly simple.

    What didn't work was the zombie brain dip - no one ate it & it had to be tossed.....won't make it again. Also I think we had our party too early as not very many people came....

    I saw the brain dip idea and thought it would be a great idea for this year. I am a little worried it would look to gross to eat but I am gonna make it with this awesome buffalo chicken dip that is gone in a blink of an eye every time I make it. I also picked up this large old silver platter to put it on at a thrift store for $10. So i will just make the dip and place it in the brain mold then unmold it when people arrive. Finishing touch, drizzle with franks red hot sauce to look like blood. Wish me luck

    Good luck!! That buffalo chicken dip might work better as everyone I've heard of loves it. I made mine with a shrimp dip - so maybe people just didn't like the shrimp dip. Post pics when you make it!!
