How to Make Your Zombie Rot…

All the green stuff that you see all over his face is due to something called “Zombie Rot”.  Yes, you can get it at any party or Halloween store.  Yes, it adds a rather gruesome effect to the zombie make-up.  After all, what is a zombie is not a shambling thing that is rotting with parts falling off of it?  Yes, you could go to the store and spend anywhere from $6-$9 depending on where you go, but why would you want to do that when you can make it yourself?

A Child of the Night You Say?


Which one would you like to be this Halloween?  Throughout Literary and Hollywood history, there have been many children of the night.  I am going to talk about some of my favorites (and some no-so favorites) on here.


From Dracula (Lugosi did it best.) to Edward Cullen, the world has been full of Vampires, the myths, the romanticism, and strengths and weaknesses.  Ever since Hollywood glorified the undead prince, we have been finding ways to perfect the “look”.  From capes to suits, to dusters and yes, expensive slacks, the wardrobe has changed as much as the make-up.  One thing has remained constant, they are indeed pale.  The difference is in how pale, whether their cheeks look sunken in or whether they “shimmer” (Which, IMHO, they do not.)

Take a look a Bella Lugosi.  His pallor is pale (Of course, it could be due to the black and white movie.); his shirt- white, black cape, and that stare that mesmerizes.  He is the epitome of vampire legend.  The dark lips note his lack of blood to that area.  If you do a search for “Dracula”, most of the results will come up with some picture of my fave.  I do so love the classics.
