Horror on TV, pumpkins glowing on doorsteps, people dressing up to scare their friends. Halloween comes only once a year, but don’t let the spirit die. Keep watching horror movies, reading horror novels, and most important keep checking where it’s Halloween all year long. Have a great one and stay spooky. ~ David Watson

7 Halloween Costume Blunders to Avoid

Posted in News on October 28, 2014 by Emerian Rich

Costuming is all about being prepared. Here are some tips from our costume blunders over the years.

  1. If you are going to cover yourself with liquid latex, shave any air in the area and have all other hair tied up and protected. Very painful trying to get it off later.
  2. Never leave home without touch-up makeup. Nothing worse than being at a party and realizing your makeup is messed up half-way through with nothing to fix it with.
  3. To avoid nip slip, wear a nude strapless bra and underwear under mummy bandages. The bandages WILL slip. Don’t let yourself become the victim of this costume’s faults.
  4. If you are going to wear prosthetics, eat BEFORE you go to the party. A lot of these attachables make it hard to enjoy food and drink.
  5. Horns that are supposed to be applied with adhesive, should be applied with adhesive. I once used the squeezable horn to “suction” it on my forehead and after 8 hours of work, the “sucking” process had created real horns on my forehead out of my own skin and blood. It sounds cool, it isn’t. Incredibly painful.
  6. If you are going as Bride of Frankenstein, use a base or fake hair to help construct the hair tower so that you don’t have to tease all of your hair. Painful to brush out later.
  7. It’s always better to make costumes from real clothes and makeup rather than polyester costumes and greasy clown makeup. Do your best with what you have, it will appear more authentic. Halloween stores are great for accessories like striped socks, hair attachments, or jewelry.

5 Low Sugar Drinks for Halloween

Posted in News with tags , , , , on October 26, 2014 by Emerian Rich

I’ve always really loved this song by Don Hinson and the Rigamorticians because, I have so many allergies, if I were a vampire, it would be my luck that I would be allergic to blood.

Whether you are allergic or watching your sugar for a medical reason, or just looking for low sugar alternatives to serve at your Halloween bash, these are sure to be a hit.

  1. No Sugar Added Cider:
    Get out your crockpot and add a gallon or two of no sugar added or low-sugar apple juice along with a sliced orange and one scoop of mulling spices. Leaving on high for a large portion of the day.
  2. No Sugar Added Hot Cocoa:
    Swiss Miss makes the best No Sugar Added Hot Chocolate. Add a little non-fat milk to make it extra creamy. Add a couple drops of red food coloring to make it darker. If you are into a more Latin taste, add a dash of cinnamon.
  3. Pumpkin Tea:
    Great thing about tea is most of them don’t contain sugar. Non-sugar sweetener and a dash of cinnamon adds specialness to this boiled water.
  4. Sparkling Water Non-Alcoholic Sangria:
    Choose your favorite non-sugar, sparkling water and add your favorite freshly cut fruit. Raspberries, strawberries, or grapes add a succulent taste and will be sweetened naturally.
  5. Bloody Good Pomegranate Cherry Mixers:
    This is one of my favorite drinks year around, but it’s color lends itself to the Halloween season. Mix Sprite Zero and Crystal Light Cherry Pomegranate drink mix into a large glass of ice.

Have a favorite sugar-free drink you enjoy? Please share it with us below.
