Caught on Lover's Lane: He wears shirt buttoned up the wrong way, pants unzipped, looking all disheveled, with lipstick kisses all over his face and neck (along with some on his shirt and one or two strategically placed close to the zipper of his pants). She wears a dress with the waist band all bunched up and twisted, lipstick smeared all over her mouth with the back of her hair all messed up, she could be missing a shoe and have holes in her panty hose. For added fun, have the man stick an empty condom package in his shirt pocket.

HOW TO MAKE FAKE BLOOD

Take some light corn syrup and add a lot of red food coloring until it looks about right. Then add blue food coloring a drop or two at a time to make the color closer to real blood (a little green might help too). If you mix in some peanut butter, the blood will be less likely to stain.

 

HOW TO MAKE FAKE INTESTINES

Take a pair of pantyhose and cut off both legs. Use a sewing machine or glue gun to make a seam all the way up the middle of each leg (don't make the seam very even). Cut off unneeded halves and turn the others inside out. Fill with cotton or cut up cotton cloth. Twist at random places and make a few stitches to make them look more realistic. Soak in fake blood and let them hang from torn shirt or zombie costume!
