We're having kind of an open house/party this year, and we're doing a mad scientist lab theme. We're planning on having a chalkboard like this hanging on the wall
Blackboard Green Organism Font Drawing
and a display of beakers, vials, and test tubes. My husband even built a fully functioning Jacobs ladder to have on display. You know, one of these things:
Lighting Light Light fixture Lamp Street light

We're going to serve drinks out of disposable beakers, and I'm going to make jello Petri dishes Blue Aqua Turquoise Turquoise Teal

I feel like we could be doing more though. What am I missing?
Oh yes, we have creepy specimen jars and lots of black lights planned as well. :)
TIA for your suggestions!

I love your Jacob's ladder! I'm filled with ladder envy ;) Where do you have it to keep people from grabbing it?
It doesn't sound like you're missing anything, but a few different types of skulls could be nice -- hominid or otherwise.

A bait shop or sporting goods store might have a fishing lure frog that fit your needs.

Besides the apothecary cabinet and all my lab jars, I've turned my entertainment center into Frankenstein's lab for this year, complete with a monster being "charged" on top. Putting "snow" on the TV so I can tape actual x-rays to it - like a light box. I am using a lot of lighting, I think the lighting really makes all of the difference........ I wish I could upload a pic, but I really suck at getting pics on here. Maybe I'll have time to figure it out after my party. These are the lights I'm using....
