I’ve included Ray Villafane on here before but his pumpkins are so amazing that I think we should take another look, visit his website here. Below are some of my favourites and a quick masterclass on carving your own amazing pumpkin.
First off here’s a couple of recipes for spooky treats for the family visit. They should know what you’re like by now, and if not they soon will when you offer them a tray of creepy cupcakes including brains, spiderweb cupcakes and this assortment of goodies including spiderweb eggs. See, eggs! It’s seasonal.
Imagine if you answer the door holding the trays in this very disturbing rabbit outfit too!
Here are some easter egg decoration ideas for geeks, and some ‘peep dioramas‘ (what’s a peep diorama? Check the second video below) featuring scenes of rabbit massacres, aliens and pole dancing. How can you resist trying to recreate those?! And let’s not forget these Halloween Easter eggs.
Finally here are some videos for those who need inspiration. Enjoy!
Spider eggs count, right?
Killer rabbit makeup. You know, for the egg hunt later.
Want to make zombie cupcakes? How about a monster? Or just want to look your spookiest? Here we are with a platter of enough gooey gore to keep you satisfied on All Hallows Eve.
1. Zombie fingers.
Over on one of my favourite blogs, The Year Of Halloween, is a recipe for zombie finger cupcakes by Amy, Queen of the Muffin Pan. The Halloween site is a wealth of spooky custumes, art and films so I suggest you have a peek.
To make the cakes you will need:
- One box of cornbread muffin mix
- Cocktail weenies or breakfast sausage links
- Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- Spinach or Kale
- Green Chilies
For a full recipe visit the blog post.
2. Make your own monster.
Need help scaring those kids? Or just feeling lonely and need someone to hug on those long, winter nights? Well, look no further.
3. Cobweb nails.
It was my birthday recently and I am now the proud owner of several new nail varnishes from Barry M. I love them so much it turns me back into the child who preferred playing with make up rather than wearing it. One of them is the Limited Edition Cobweb design. Hurry up, those nails won’t scare people themselves!
Below are a couple of how-to videos and spooky make-up tutorials. Merry Halloween and may the Night of the Walking Dead be a pleasant one. Or at least one where your face isn’t eaten. Farewell!
At easter when I was small my sisters and I would make a scene of hatching chicks using cotton wool, paint and real egg shells. Its bizarre to think that the girls who would sneak off to raves in the middle of the night would also spend time with me making things.
Anyway…spring and easter are looming and that means three things; chocolates, hormones and arts and crafts. And apparently zombies. Four things. Click on the links for how tos or to purchase these seasonal lovelies.
Firstly, they won’t be around for long but the zombie poppet bunnies are rather cute.
I found a very different idea for egg decorating on geektyrant.com.
Send your zombie easter bunny ecard to a friend from ifyouwereazombie.com.
If psychedelic colours are more your thing, combine their forces with chocolate as found on Bakerellacom.
