Halloween Lights – Projector & String Lights
Halloween Lights & Special Effects to Bring the Scene to Life at Night
Lights, cameras, action! No haunted house is Halloween-ready without the disorienting flash of strobe lights or the ominous glow of black lights that make fluorescent blood splatters seem to leap from the walls. No yard is complete without spotlights to draw attention to the key props in the horror scene, or string lights to punctuate a more kid-friendly decorating theme.
Party City offers a broad selection of Halloween lights and special effects machines: compact strobe lights, string lights, fluorescent black light fixtures, and LED candles for the jack-o’-lantern perched on your porch.
All lights are UL listed; many smaller lights, like the compact strobes, are battery-operated, freeing you to position them in the optimal location without regard for power outlets and extension cords. Place them virtually anywhere — as long as batteries last, they flash for several hours, and with some compact models you can display up to six pre-programmed light shows.
Here are just a few of the Halloween lights we sell online and in Party City stores:
Halloween string lights: Kid-friendly string lights feature pumpkins, smiling ghosts and spiders, and other holiday favorites. They’re suitable for indoor and outdoor use in all kinds of weather. For apartment dwellers, string lights may be the only Halloween decoration needed to enliven a window or porch railing.
Strobes & black lights: Battery-operated strobe lights are always popular – they’re cheap, so that you can purchase as many as you need without straining the budget, and they usually offer the convenience of cord-free mounting on a table top or wall. Some strobes come equipped with sound effects. As for black lights, these are an absolute essential for indoor haunted Halloween scenes and luminescent props.
LED candles & tealights: LED lights provide long-lasting and safe lighting for jack-o’-lanterns and table sets. They can also serve as accents for a walkway. Placed in Halloween-themed bags, they transform an ordinary walk into a magical path lined with luminaries.
Prop lighting: These include light-up inflatable props, decorative props like Halloween lanterns, and porch and yard accents like light-up plastic jack-o’-lanterns. Most prop lighting is battery-operated, although some of the larger props may require a corded connection.
Spotlights & projectors: Projectors cast a template image onto a screen or wall. This could be a lightning strike, a spooky pumpkin, or other Halloween image. Some projectors come with multiple templates and turn themselves off automatically when the “show” is over.
Spot lights work exactly like stage spots, only in miniature. They often run on batteries; some spots may have a corded option as well. Some units emit sound and can project an array of colors.
Fog machines & ground foggers: A fogger creates the dense, low-lying fog you see in the movies. Graveyard sets take on a whole new layer of fright when the ground fogger goes to work; picture the dense, eerie fog of a classic Hollywood horror film. Fog machines produce lighter mist that extends from floor to ceiling. This helps amplify the lighting effect of a haunted house or Halloween party.

Learn how Halloween is celebrated in the United States
Halloween is celebrated in the United States on October 31. The name “Halloween” comes from “All Hallows Eve,” or the day before All Saints Day, a traditional holy day for Christians. Halloween originated in Europe but during the 19th century immigrants brought it to North America, where it spread in popularity and evolved in many ways. According to tradition, the spirits of the dead were able to come back to life to harm people and crops in the physical world. People tried to appease the restless spirits on Halloween, and these practices led to many of today’s Halloween traditions. For example, people used to wear costumes of monsters, ghosts, and devils to scare away the harmful spirits.
People still celebrate by wearing scary costumes. However, today they also dress up like popular celebrities, children’s show characters, princesses, super heroes and much more. After dressing up, kids go trick-or-treating. They go from house to house in their neighborhoods and ask for treats such as candies and snacks by saying, “Trick or treat!” According to tradition, if no treat is given, they can play a trick on the homeowners. The traditional scary and modern fun sides of Halloween are seen today as the Jack-o’-lanterns that people create by carving scary faces on pumpkins. Homeowners place Jack-o’-lanterns in front of their houses to scare evil spirits and to welcome trick-or-treaters. Other modern fun activities that reflect the traditional past of Halloween include watching horror movies and visiting haunted houses.
The celebration in the United States has spread to other countries throughout the world as a fun and commercial event. Today many people celebrate Halloween with costumes and candy, without knowing the history of the traditions. In addition, some organizations including UNICEF use the same concept of trick-or-treat to ask for money for fund raising to be used to help people in need around world.

Celebrate! See the chapter on Halloween.
Activity 1 (Intermediate Learners)
Pumpkin carving is a big part of Halloween celebrations in the United States. During this activity, your students will draw a Jack-o’-lantern. Prior to class, go online and find a few examples of Jack-o’-lantern faces. Or you can use the examples provided below.
First, have your students get into pairs and hand out pictures of two different Jack-o’-lantern faces to each group. Each person is allowed to see only one face. Ask one partner to describe his or her Jack-o’-lantern face to the other person. The partner should listen and draw the face on a sheet of paper. Then, have the partners switch their roles. You can help them to describe it in English by teaching the following example and the useful underlined expressions:
- Give a general description: This jack-o-lantern has two eyes, a nose, and a mouth and it looks happy.
- Draw two triangles for eyes near the top of the pumpkin.
- Draw one triangle for a nose under the eyes and in the middle of the face.
- Draw a half circle for a mouth under the nose. Make it wide to look like an open-mouth smile.
- Add three teeth to the smile, one that sticks up from the bottom of the mouth in the middle (It looks like a small rectangle) and two that hang from the top of the mouth on either side of the bottom tooth.
- Other useful expressions: to the left of, to the right of, next to, close to, above, in the center.
After each pair of students has completed two drawings, have them compare their drawings to the originals. To celebrate Halloween, they can post their drawings on the wall of the classroom or create brand new Jack-o’-lanterns to share.
Activity 2 (Advanced Learners)
As Halloween is one of the most widely celebrated days in the United States, there are many relevant songs and poems for the holiday. In this activity, your students will be writing an “acrostic” poem about Halloween. An acrostic poem has a distinctive format where the combination of the first letters of each line comes from a certain word or phrase. The content of the poem is also related to the resulting word or phrase.
First, tell your students that they are going to write an acrostic poem and explain what it is. To help their understanding, introduce the following poem as an example.
Trick or Treat
Tonight at last is Halloween.
Remember your costume
If you forget you can’t go out.
Children visiting neighbors’ doors asking for candy like,
Kit Kat candy bars.
Odd skeletons and ghosts walk on sidewalks,
Real kids shout “trick or treat,”
Tricky goblins may be behind walls,
Rickety old houses,
Elves with little hats,
All wander the sidewalks because
Tonight it is Halloween.
Next, give your students some Halloween-related words so that they can use them in their poem (e.g., bonfire, costume, ghost, pumpkin, scary, skeleton, jack-o’-lantern, candy). You can use some words included in the Overview section. (If writing a full poem is too difficult for your students, they can simply write one word for each line.) Then, give them enough time to write their own poems on a piece of paper. Once they are done, ask them to display their poems on the wall of the classroom to share all of the poems with their classmates.

Impressive, isn’t it?
Here is another look at one of our Wish Stars, Kanisha, whose paint job is clearly a showstopper.
(Kanisha K. Guyton)
- Creepy, dead or dangerous
“Do you like scary movies?”
You can even find inspiration from your favorite horror movie, as Kerri did…
…or be creative: as long as you look creepy, dead or dangerous, you’ve nailed it!
Tired of witches and zombies? Want to have a more unique look? Halloween gives you the perfect excuse to dress up as somebody (or something) else. You can take inspiration from a movie or simply wear something funny. You’ll definitely have more chances to be the only one with your costume at the party!
Our Wish Stars, Ramona and Fabiola, opted for a Disney movie costume: Esmeralda from ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ and Alice from ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Cosplayers, this is your time to shine!
(Anna Maria Langiu)
Want to stand out among the crowd? Put on a cow onesie and make a moo-ve!
- “I see dead people…”
If you don’t have a scary costume but still want to mingle with vampires and killers, you can always play a dead version of yourself or of an old carnival costume you still have. Just add some scars and fake blood to your look, et voila!
(Manu Ela Ga)
Create the perfect Halloween atmosphere at home! You’ll just need a few accessories to make your house look as creepy as possible; in the end, we don’t want to let the trick-or-treaters think they’ll have an easy time getting their candies.
(Robyn Moore – “I’ve been using my mini hand sealer from Wish to make up cellophane skeleton packs of candy for Halloween. I think they will be a huge hit on the night.”)
- “Come play with us… forever… and ever…”
And we can’t forget about the mini trick-or-treaters! Scary or cute, they’re bound to make heads turn.
(Diana Benedetta Missana)
Have a frightfully fun Halloween night, Wish fam! Pictured here is yours truly, the Wish Community Team!

Hooded ponchos are a great way to show your Halloween spirit without going full dress-up.

Look, this avocado hat is just plain funny, and that’s good enough for us!
Roman Bendable Snake Headband ($9.99; spirithalloween.com)

Fanciful headwear is honestly irresistible at any time of the year, but Halloween provides the perfect excuse to invest in some ornamentation for your luscious locks.

Fogging Skull Pile ($79.99; spirithalloween.com)

Goldtone Tarot Candle Holders, 2-Pack
Votive candle holders are another way to add a big splash of Halloween flair to a small space. If you’ll be lighting up the votives in a space that will be largely unattended, like a guest bathroom, opt for flameless votive candles rather than the wax version to prevent a fire.
Ouija Board Party Pack ($19.99; spirithalloween.com)
Ouija Board Party Pack

6-Foot Grim Animatronic ($279.99; spirithalloween.com)
6 Ft. Grim Animatronic
It’s not the most expensive animatronic item Spirit Halloween offers — that would be the 7.5-Foot Demogorgon Static Prop Decoration, which costs a cool $1,299.99 and which is sadly sold out (who is buying this thing, please show yourself, we must know) — but this 6-foot skeleton takes last year’s giant skeleton trend up a notch by adding movement and sound to the pile of bones.
7 Unique Halloween Costumes For 2017 If You Want The Spotlight To Be On You
Raise your hand if you’ve spent way too much time thinking about and planning your Halloween costume. Ahem – don’t lie, all of your hands should be raised. Whether you started planning weeks ago, or you haven’t started (and now find yourself on the worst kind of deadline), planning your Halloween costume can be stressful AF. You never know quite what to be, or how it’ll be received by friends and family. Do you want to be funny, or smart? Cute or scary? All of the above? What does that even look like? Let me tell ya: it’s not easy. It’s especially not easy to find a costume that’s special; unique Halloween costumes for 2017 are difficult.
The first question you usually ask yourself is: What hasn’t been done? I’ll answer that for you: Everything you can think of probably has been done, so it’s best to drop that expectation now. Halloween, incidentally, becomes a lot more fun then, too. Then, you move onto figuring out what’s recognizable, but not so popular that everyone else is doing. Inevitably, you end up in a pile of clothes and old costumes wondering if you should just cancel your entire Halloween.
Bu there’s none of that happening for you now. Instead, I’ve made it really, really easy for you: here are seven Halloween costumes so unique that everyone can’t help but stare. Don’t get shy now!
Give Your Sims The Glory They Deserve
…by impersonating them and using them as a Halloween costume, of course. You can just go with the green headband or be hella extra and go all out for the Sim-censored shower mode. Either way is hilarious – and everyone’s going to be watching.
That Giant Inflatable Dinosaur
Everyone’s seen it. Everyone’s laughed. Now it’s your turn to live it. Seriously, this costume is bound to give you the spotlight. Anything you do in it is instantly more funny (but don’t abuse your newfound power).
Let Your Pup Do The Talking
You’ll never have to think about your costume if you’re distracting everyone with your dog’s costume, right? Genius. No one will notice you “forgot” your costume if your dog rolls up to the party dressed like the cutest thing since well, the last dog they saw.
If you really want to turn some heads, this one’s sure to be your winner. Sure, the other emojis costumes are trendy and are bound to be super popular, but this one puts you a league ahead. You could always say you’re ice cream.
How to steal the spotlight? Show up as dead-ringer for Rihanna. There are tons of eras and styles to choose from, and they’re all iconic AF. Literally no one loses in this situation. Your friends will thank you for gracing them with your presence (as they should).
If your squad is still costume-less too, this group costume is your perfect solution. A quick search gives you lots of tutorials to follow. Show up in this costume and you already know everyone’s going to be watching you ( for good or for worse, I can’t say).
Anyone From The Movie “Juno”
This costume works because it’s so recognizable. It’s not even a fan favorite movie – it just has facial recognition. Plus, chances are if you show up suddenly looking pretty pregnant that some eyes are going to be on you. Hit the dance floor for some real good laughs.

Animal-Friendly Halloween Costumes and Makeup | Spotlight
Halloween is creeping up on us pretty fast, and it’s about time to work on getting yourself a costume. There’s no better time than this holiday to use costumes to dress up for what you believe in—like sticking up for animals. So use this feature as an inspiration for your animal-friendly costume! ?
‘SuperVegan’—a Superhero for Animals
Superheroes are so cool! They’re always standing up for those in trouble and using their powers to do something good. Sounds a lot like what you do for animals. Show everyone just how super you are with your own “SuperVegan” costume. Buy a superhero outfit and add vegan flair to it, or make your own with a homemade mask and a cape.
A lot of people don’t know that animals are killed for food, clothing, and dissection. Dress up as an activist by creating a sign that addresses an animal rights issue that’s important to you. Maybe you can even think up a chant to say about the issue every time people open their doors.
Rescued Dog or Cat
Every year in the U.S., more than 6 million lost, abandoned, or unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters. Since it’s already so much fun to dress up as our favorite animal companions, why not stick up for them, too? By adding a sign to your look or even painting the word “Rescued” on your costume, you can help animal companions by reminding other trick-or-treaters to adopt and never buy their animal friends.
‘Not Your Mom, Not Your Milk’ Cow and Calf
Grab your mom and ask her to be your costume partner for this one. Not everybody knows that cows produce milk only when they have babies and that they’re separated from their infants so humans can drink their milk.? You can tell people about this horrifying reality by buying or creating a cow costume or shirt and carrying a sign (or painting a message on your costume) that says, “Not your mom, not your milk.”
Animal Rights Lawyer
Lawyers are people who are trained to uphold the law while also protecting the humans who hired them. An animal rights lawyer is someone who wants to protect the rights of nonhuman animals and make sure that everyone is following the laws that have been put in place to protect them. Animal rights lawyers, like the hero “SuperVegan,” do everything in their power to protect animals and keep them safe from harm. They’re real-life superheroes for animals—just like you! So grab some business clothes, a briefcase, and a sign to put on your briefcase that lets everyone know you aren’t just any lawyer—you’re an animal rights lawyer.
‘Shop Cruelty-Free’ Bunny
Unfortunately, there’s no ban on testing cosmetics or household products on animals in the U.S., so companies that make and sell them here can choose to have them tested on animals. The good news is that today, so many are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. On Halloween, remind everyone not to be a bully to bunnies, to ditch products that are tested on animals, and to shop cruelty-free with your “Shop Cruelty-Free” bunny costume!
It’s important that the makeup we buy—whether it’s for theater, dance class, or Halloween—is cruelty-free, which means it was never tested on animals. Tests on animals are cruel, deadly, and painful. Animals like bunnies, rats, and mice are stuck inside cages for their whole lives, and have chemicals rubbed into their eyes or onto their skin—no one wants to be treated that way. ? We can help them by shopping cruelty-free. Here are just a few brands that are easy to find and don’t test on animals—they can help make your cool costume even cooler.
wet n wild
This brand has a variety of makeups that you can use for your costume. From eyeshadows to lots of colored eyeliners to body and face glitters and fake eyelashes—this is your go-to company for any super-colorful or super-glam Halloween costumes!
NYX is prepared for Halloween with lots of superhero and super-villain looks already on its website. Suggest this brand to your parents if you need makeup for a costume that has a lot of details—like if you’re going to make your “SuperVegan” mask with makeup!
From a variety of nail polish colors to super-fun lip glosses, L.A. Colors has lots of ways for you to make your costume complete.
Do you need green hair for your costume, jet-black nails to pull off the perfect witchy look, or glitter to make your fairy outfit twinkle? Manic Panic has it all. This brand has a huge variety of products—and they’re all vegan!
Is Your Halloween Candy Vegan?!
90,000 Why is it customary to wear scary costumes on Halloween? | SOCIETY
Halloween is considered the most terrifying and at the same time one of the most popular holidays in the world. And although Russia has its own analogues of this day, nevertheless, many are interested in the traditions of the holiday.
Halloween is celebrated every year on October 31st, on the eve of All Saints’ Day. The traditions of its celebration were laid by the ancient Celts of Ireland and Scotland. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word “Halloween” was first mentioned in the 16th century as a Scottish abbreviation of the English phrase All-Hallows-Even, which means “All Saints’ Evening” in English.
On October 31, it is customary to dress up as scary characters, decorate the house and buy sweets.
The main symbol of the holiday is Jack’s Lamp – a pumpkin, on which, as a rule, an ominously grinning face is carved. A lighted candle is placed inside the vegetable. For the first time “Jack’s lamps” appeared in the UK, but initially they used rutabaga or turnips to make them. It was believed that such a fruit, left on All Saints Day near the house, would drive away evil spirits from him.As the Halloween tradition spread to the United States, pumpkins were used to make lamps because they were a more readily available and cheaper vegetable.
Today, instead of the classic version – pumpkins with an evil “face”, others are popular among Russian fans of the holiday. So, users of social networks on the eve of the holiday demonstrated pumpkins with glowing frightening phrases: “Subsistence minimum”, “Gasoline prices”, etc.
Another tradition of the holiday is dressing up in carnival costumes.According to researchers, this tradition arose relatively recently, at the beginning of the twentieth century, and its emergence was facilitated by the American traditions of costume parties. Most often, on Halloween, fans of the holiday wear costumes of various evil spirits or try on images of supernatural and cinematic characters, for example, ghosts, zombies, vampires and witches. Just frightening make-up is also popular.
The fact is that according to an ancient belief, at night on October 31, the door to the other world was opened and all sorts of “monsters” penetrated the earth.People dressed up in terrible costumes so that the evil spirits took them for their own and did not harm.
By the way, researchers find a completely rational explanation for the traditions of the holiday. Halloween is followed by November 1st – in fact, the first month of winter. It was getting dark and cold outside. Therefore, we met the “terrible” time of the year in this way.

Although in other European countries there were also traditions that were consonant with Halloween. Gradually, they learned about Halloween in the USA, Japan, Australia, Asia and Oceania. Not so long ago, the traditions of Halloween began to take root in the CIS countries, although the attitude towards them continues to remain ambiguous. Some consider it just a comic holiday, during which children collect sweets, others attribute it to something mystical, otherworldly and not entirely acceptable.However, the traditions of Halloween continue to live on and flourish, and the kids, choosing the most original Halloween costume, walk in groups from door to door, saying: “Sweet or nasty.”
Lantern Pumpkin or Jack Lantern is a large orange pumpkin with a candle burning inside. Such a pumpkin often has a malicious grin, but it scares few people. It is believed that earlier such lamps scared away evil spirits and illuminated the way for lost souls.Initially, they were cut from turnips, but in the United States, pumpkin was used for this purpose, as it was cheaper and more accessible.

90,000 Halloween Games and Contests for Adults: How to Party Fun
Halloween is a holiday that dates back to the times of the Celtic tribes. Initially, the Celts celebrated it as the beginning of the New Year. The pagans believed that on this day spirits, supernatural beings and other evil spirits go out into the world of living people.
A few centuries later, with the advent of Christianity, the holiday acquires a new status – people begin to celebrate All Saints Day. Its English name is an abbreviation for All Hallows’ Eve.
Despite the fact that Halloween has its origins in English-speaking countries – Ireland, Britain, today it is celebrated on a grand scale in the USA, Canada and many European countries, including Ukraine.
In our country, on this day, it is customary to have fun and dress up in costumes of evil spirits, so young people like the holiday.
We organize various show programs, organize themed parties, home celebrations and get-togethers, as well as mass processions around the city. At the same time, preference is given to scary games, fun contests and unusual quizzes.
Games for the Company
To make your Halloween party fun and memorable, you need to do some good work on your selection of games. The script for the celebration must be stylized as a holiday.At the same time, participants should think carefully about makeup, hairstyle, costume – the more unusual and scary they are, the more fun.
The company’s Halloween program usually includes the following games:
Participants of the celebration are divided into two teams. Each player receives a pumpkin, which he needs to lower off the ramp (can be made from old trash), and then use a whisk to roll to the finish line.
The winner is the team whose participants will be the first to complete the task and will be left without a single pumpkin.
Good game for a company, in which an unlimited number of people can participate. Participants sitting in a circle receive a pen and a piece of paper. Each of them must answer 10 questions (continue the phrases), which are asked by the presenter.
After each answer, the participant throws a leaf into the leader’s hat or a special pumpkin bucket, from where the leaves are handed back to the participants in a random way. After 10 questions, the facilitator collects pieces of paper and reads the stories aloud.The funniest and scariest stories are announced as winners.
It is better to start preparing for it during a disco or a smoke break, when several people can be quietly taken out. Volunteers should be brought into a separate room and, using wrapping paper, a marker, draw their silhouettes, using additionally ketchup or red paint.
You can also draw silhouettes on the floor with white chalk. All other guests become trackers and try to guess the names of the victims.
Participants are divided into pairs, each of which receives orange balls, markers and a string. In the first part of the game, the contestants need to inflate the balloon as soon as possible and use a black felt-tip pen to turn it into a Halloween symbol – Jack’s lamp.
Next, the music turns on and during the dance the couple needs to burst the ball, holding it between their bodies.
Beg for a treat
The game is good for both adults and children.For her, you need to prepare any sweets – candies, dragees, bars, etc., which must be numbered.
Cards with unusual tasks and numbers of sweet prizes are compiled separately. Each participant comes to the table, pulls a card with the number of the gift, after which the host announces the prize and the task that must be completed to receive it.
Among the options for tasks may be the following – to portray a zombie, to crawl like a spider, to scare the audience in any way, for example, with facial expressions, etc.
Zombies and Mummies
This game can be played both in the office and at home. Participants are divided into two teams – Zombies and Mummies. The facilitator draws a circle with white chalk (in order not to spoil the floor, you can use a long white rope). It should be so large that you can put two chairs at a great distance from each other.
Participants are divided into teams. The command cry of the Zombie is oo-oo-oo-oo, and Mumiy uh-uh. Participants with their eyes closed must find “friends” by sound and approach the team chair without crossing the white line of the circle.The winner is the team with the minimum number of eliminated competitors.
This game is most often played during themed parties in a nightclub. For her, you need to stock up on such props as a cardboard box without a side wall, blindfolds, a plate with grapes and orange slices, jelly sweets without wrappers, mashed potatoes and the like. A hole is cut in the upper part of the box so that the participant can put his hand
Only spectators can see the contents of the plate. The host announces to the participant of the “menu” – worms in Spanish, witch’s eyes, zombie brains, etc.
The participant must not only get, but also eat the treat. The most interesting thing in this game is the emotions of the player, who does not assume about the real contents of the plates.
A plaque with a mystical inscription is hung on the player’s back – zombie, vampire, demon, etc., which the rest of the audience can see. Leading interesting questions (with Yes / No answers) should nudge the participant towards an idea of who he is.
The winner is the contestant who guesses his “status” the fastest.
Each couple receives a roll of toilet paper, with which the participants need to roll up their partners. The victory is won by the player who is the fastest to turn a partner into a mummy.
The fun doesn’t end there. On this day, the adult audience also does not refuse intellectual games, including options such as:
- competition for knowledge of the history of the holiday;
- drinking quiz on the knowledge of paraphernalia.
Scary Halloween contests
Since the contests on this evening must have otherworldly themes, the celebration cannot be imagined without horror stories. Horror-style contests provoking nervous tremors and a chill in the soul are the highlight of the celebration.
Among the horror stories that are most suitable for the scenario of the holiday, we offer the following:
“Pluck out the eye”
To carry it out, you will need a spoon and a tennis ball on which you need to depict an eye.The participant must bring the “eye” in a tablespoon to the other end of the room and place it in the pumpkin.
The main task here is not to miss the balls. The winner is the team whose competitors will cope with the task faster and without losses.
In the room where the party will take place, it is necessary to arrange in advance the toy symbols and attributes of the holiday – snakes, spiders, bats, etc. As soon as it comes to this competition, the lights are turned off, and the host asks to find as many ingredients for the witch’s soup as possible.
The participant with the most “ingredients” wins.
Each participant receives a secret task – to go into a secret dark room where there are burning candles and extinguish one candle with a shout. When leaving the room, players are forbidden to tell anything to the rest of the guests.
Each next participant experiences fear of entering the room, where his partner’s screams were heard before.
“The Worst Death”
Contestants are invited to come up with unusual death stories.Whoever has it scary herself wins the prize.
“Drink some blood”
The following attributes are required for the competition – tomato or grape juice, cups, where laminated cards with 3×3 cm letters are placed. Guests are divided into teams. Their task is to drink a glass of “blood”, pull out the letter and pass the baton to the next participant.
At the end of the competition, the letters must be put into a word. The first team to drink all the juice and spell the word correctly will win.
This is a competition best suited for students and young audiences. For him, it is necessary to move two tables so that there is a gap between them for a human head.
One of the participants sits in this gap. The tables are covered with a tablecloth, in which an incision is made for the head. It can be decorated in any way – doused with ketchup, overlaid with vermicelli or vegetable slices, after which it must be covered with a lid or box.
A cutout for the hand is made in the box, covered with a black cloth.To the right and left of the human head are symbols of the holiday – Jack’s head, snake, skull and so on. The host announces the rules of the competition – you need to guess by touch whose head is hidden under the box.
When all participants have submitted their versions, the box rises.
According to the terms of the competition, the participants form a circle, in the center of which is the leader with a lead on the rope. A light chiffon or guipure scarf, shawl, kerchief or blouse can be used as a cast.The presenter tries to touch any of the participants with this rope.
The player’s task is to catch the ghost, but at the same time not let him touch him. The participant who failed to dodge the rope becomes the new leader.
All of the above scary contests are in great demand among a young audience. They are the key to an interesting holiday and contribute to creating the right atmosphere. Horror stories at the Halloween themed party make it fun and memorable.

A man in the form of Dracula
Women can easily transform into charming vampires if they rummage well in their own wardrobe. It is advisable that your outfit is dominated by black, red or purple tones. The basis of the costume can be any black dress or skirt and top.
A corset will help to make your look more effective.It will be well complemented by Gothic-style jewelry, black gloves, fishnet tights and high heels.
But for the image to be complete, you need a raincoat that you can sew with your own hands, using a pattern and taking into account the advice of our designer.
If you want to sew a classic raincoat, you will need two pieces of fabric – black and red (purple can be used) – 1.5 by 3 meters. But if you want to add a hood to the raincoat, you will also need two cuts of the same colors 90 centimeters long and two lengths of the distance from shoulder to crown plus 4-6 centimeters and a couple of centimeters for allowances.

How to sew a Dracula costume yourself
Fold the two cuts together, face inward, outline the fabric as in pattern # 1 and cut off everything that is shaded. The radius of the neck should be taken about 15 centimeters. Without separating the parts, sew them along the side and bottom edges. Then twist through the hole in the neckline and iron.
Next, take the pieces of fabric intended for the hood, fold them together facing inward, then bend them in half lengthwise and outline them as in pattern # 2.The top, longest line should line up with the fold of the fabric.
If you do not want the hood at the back to have a sharp angle, you can round it a little. Cut out the details, straighten and, without separating the red and black fabric, sew along the face line of the hood, then lay out the resulting fabric and iron the seam.
Now fold the part in half face inward along the “hood length” line, sew first the black and then the red fabric along the back (oblique) line. Turn the piece through the neck and tuck the red part into the black part, thus forming a hood.
Now it remains to connect the hood to the base. To do this, sew the upper parts of the hood along the neckline, folding the two parts face inward.
Then sew the lining along the neckline with your hands, hiding the cuts from the inside out. Sew the strings neatly at the end so you can tie the raincoat.
One of the traditional images for this holiday is the witch. She can be as beautiful and sexy as she can be scary or even disgusting. Naturally, most women prefer the first option.
Halloween witch costume consists of several main elements: hat, shoes, makeup and broom. A black dress is suitable as the outfit itself, regardless of the length, complete with striped leggings or tights.
But remember that in a tight, short dress you will look naturally sexier. It’s good if you manage to match the dress with a corset or at least a wide belt. You can make a hat with your own hands using the video advice:
And now the costume is ready, but what is a witch without a broom? You can use a regular broom with a long shaft or make your own original broom from plastic bottles.
Must be attractive and seductive. Therefore, any tight-fitting outfit in black or red is suitable for a suit. For example, wear a tight-fitting skirt or black trousers. Or even black jeans. From above, you can put on any sweater in the same color scheme.
Mandatory attributes – tail and horns. The easiest way to buy them is in the store, but there they may not be as beautiful and interesting as homemade ones.Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to make devilish attributes with your own hands.
In a ghost costume perfect for Halloween, the main thing is white. To create a ghost costume, you need a white sheet without a pattern, scissors and a felt-tip pen. An old sheet will do, which after the holiday you will not mind throwing away, we make slits in it for the eyes. We measure the distance from the eyes to the mouth, transfer it to the fabric and make a hole for the mouth, preferably uneven.
Then outline the slots for the eyes and mouth with a black felt-tip pen to brighten the costume.In order for the suit to be comfortable, it is better not just to throw on the sheet, but to sew along the edges in the form of a bag, leaving slits for the hands.

Halloween ghost costume
A female ghost costume is even easier to prepare. Any white clothes and shoes will do. Hair can also be dyed white, and the face must be given a deathly pallor, leaving only dark circles around the eyes. To complete the look, you can throw white tulle over your head.
No Halloween can be complete without the angel of death, especially since this costume will suit both girls and boys. You will need a black silk robe with a hood and a plastic or cardboard braid. A cloak for the image can be bought or sewn, the more you already have a pattern. In this case, it is better to use black and white.
Girls can replace the traditional death costume with a more attractive mini-dress or skirt, fishnet tights and high-heeled shoes.Make-up on the face will look very cool – pale skin and dark eye sockets. Make-up can be done by yourself using conventional cosmetics – foundation (light) cream, pencil and shadows.
And more …
It is very easy to make a mad scientist costume. To do this, it is enough to take large round glasses and a white robe, preferably with spots that you can apply yourself. Tousle your hair a little and you will turn into a mad scientist.
Gypsy Halloween costumes are popular and are easy enough to make at home.To do this, you just need to take clothes in bright colors – long skirts and a free-cut tops. Tie a scarf over your head and put on a variety of accessories, and your costume is ready.
If you love revealing sexy outfits, then the nurse look is for you. Her short robe with a half-covered bust will not leave you unnoticed. Wear a beanie or cross headband on your head, and a red leg garter completes your playful look.

Anything can be used to make Halloween costumes.To make unusual Halloween costumes with your own hands, you just need to look around and show your imagination.
However, the success at the ball of evil spirits depends not so much on the costume, but also on the makeup, hairstyle and accessories. In order to create your own unique image, you can turn to makeup artists. However, you can create an unusual image with your own hands.
Halloween is a great occasion to experiment and overdo it with makeup.For vampire makeup, you need more powder and foundation, in the lightest tones, to accentuate the pallor of the face.
Lips can be painted with red or black, or simply painted over with foundation. The main thing is to emphasize the eyes. Black, gray, blue or purple shades are perfect. A red trickle of blood from the corner of the mouth, which can be painted with lipstick, will become a highlight of the makeup.
You can make a romantic and delicate fawn makeup, which has become popular in recent years, using the video advice:
To create a vivid image of a good sorceress or an evil sorceress, you need the most colorful cosmetics.Makeup should cover not only the face, but also open areas of the body – neck, décolleté, hands.
Witches are usually quite pale. Therefore, you need to apply white powder or light foundation on your face, evenly distributing it over the skin. For the eyes, you can use a combination of black, blue and silver, summing up the contours of the eyes with artsy, ornate lines.
Another eye makeup option – long black arrows and bright pink shades. Eyelashes and eyebrows need to be painted as brightly as possible, because the image of a witch cannot be imagined without an expressive look.
The image of a dead bride is also easy to do with your own hands. First you need to whiten your face, then draw arched eyebrows that instantly give your face a plaintive look, stick on false eyelashes and, to complete the picture, draw cracks on pale lips.
Halloween makeup at home can be done in a variety of ways using different products. The main thing to remember is that the “fighting color” for Halloween should be bright, beautiful, charming, sexy and at the same time scary.
Coolest Horrible Makeup Options for Women and Men
Popular Halloween 2020 Women’s Makeup Options are Frankenstein, Pin-Up Zombie Looks and Brides Terminator . Creative, right?
Men are not as willing to reincarnate as women, but sometimes they also do not mind to make original makeup for Halloween 2021. Favorite images – demons, zombies, skeletons and a clown from the movie “ Joker “.
Calavera makeup is a cool idea for Halloween 2021 that fans of this holiday have borrowed from the Mexicans. Calavera is a symbol of the Mexican Day of the Dead , which is celebrated on November 1 and 2. Translated from Spanish, it means “sugar skull” and is not something creepy and terrible, since Mexicans remember on this holiday relatives and friends who have passed away. Skulls decorated with roses and other flowers do not cause horror and disgust at all, on the contrary – they are very beautiful.
Children’s make-up at home: what happens
First, decide what material is suitable for make-up. Use one of the options:
- Face painting.
- Theatrical makeup for children over 12 years old.
The best option is face painting. Colored paints will not spoil the baby’s skin, are easy to apply and also easy to wash off.During the day, such make-up does not crumble, does not run off and does not leave marks on clothes. It is especially important that face painting does not cause allergies on children’s sensitive skin. Order material online. A set of colors will last for at least two Halloween.
In contrast to face painting, use theatrical make-up for children over 12 years old. Paints are heavy, do not hold well during the day, have an oily sheen and can cause allergies. In addition, real theatrical make-up is expensive and is not sold everywhere.
An alternative to the first two options – crayons. If you need a light makeup, this is just what you need. The paints are hypoallergenic and easy to use. An easy way to apply them to your baby’s skin is with a sponge. Keep in mind that chalk makeup is impractical. Use crayons only for short outings with little Halloween characters.
From materials and tools for creating a bright image on children’s faces, you will need:
- shadows; 90 022 90 021 carcasses;
- colored cosmetic pencils;
- make-up remover;
- natural brushes of different thickness;
- napkins and cotton pads.
Regardless of which childish look you choose, apply makeup in a specific order. Prepare baby’s skin first (cleanse and spread with baby moisturizer). Remove excess cream. Apply the foundation of the desired color, carefully blending with the sponge over the skin.
