Bloody Valentines Fancy Dress

Flour Fancy DressThere was another amazing fancy dress party round Ana’s house. This time it was on Valentines day, with a bloody valentines theme. I did the old flour-on-the-face trick and put on a suite and bow tie, while Francine dressed in a scraggly wedding dress. Then we both applied fake blood liberally.

Our blood recipe was scarlet food colouring with water and cornflour stirred in to thicken it a little, but then to make it less vibrant pink we added a dash of soy sauce!

It turned out pretty well. We felt compelled to spend some time coming up with a decent effort for fancy dress to try and live up to our robot costumes at last year’s party and awesome 80s look the year before that (you may have seen pics on facebook)

  2. “cheap these days”? hehe… Yes. I’ve noticed the fake blood market prices have been shifting. Back in 2009 the prices were high, and I was forced to use food colouring but now is a good time to buy. I don’t know about you, but I’m stockpiling several barrels of fake blood in my garage at the moment. Prices can only go up.
