Let’s do the Maaahn-ster Mash…. That classic line signifies only one thing (no, not bad taste in music): a Halloween party! When you’re a kid, Halloween is great for dressing up like a freak and getting rewarded with candy and staying up late. But as you get older, people will start to tell you, “Aren’t you too old for trick-or-treating?” or “Shouldn’t you be giving out candy?” (So what if I was 26!) Ah, but what the kiddies don’t know is that what you miss in candy you make up for in partying! Whether your Halloween costume is creative, funny, or skimpy, a Halloween party ain’t no party without some goodies! We suggest a few essentials whether you’re planning a party, going to one, or even crashing one (hey, every party needs that one person everyone talks about the next day!)! Let’s do the Maaahn-ster Mash…. (the Mon-ster-Mash!)
One of the most annoying things about any party is forgetting which of the plastic cups on the counter belongs to you. Trust me, others will claim this is theirs, but you will know that this Skull Beer Stein is yours and yours only! It goes well with any Halloween costume, from the baby (bad parents!) to the zombie (brai— I mean, beer!) Are you going as a designated driver this year? No worries: root beer looks just as cool in this. Its glass frame and classic design makes it stylish and usable even after the holidays.
If you’re the one throwing the Halloween party this year, dress up like a vampire and drop some Vampire Fang Ice Cubes into everyone’s drink! (And make sure to yell “Cooold Bloooded” à la Rick James style when you do!) With all the True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and Twilight craze going on these are sure to please the crowd and put a smile on even the palest and ghastliest of ghouls at your party. Think of making a game out of it: the person who finds, say, a piece of garlic in their vampire fangs gets a prize from you, Count Dracula! Plus, it would be funny to see who ends up drinking garlic. It’s something people don’t expect, and it’s little things like this that make the party fun, festive, and memorable.
Speaking of memories, you might want to keep a camera handy because you in your construction worker outfit might get completely hammered this year (get it? nuk nuk nuk). A Diana F+ Flash Glow in the Dark Camera can help ensure that you capture every slurring moment. The difference between this and any other camera? It glows in the dark! This retro charm creates pictures with a dreamy quality reminiscent of vintage mid-century photos. And it’s just so dang cool-looking. Look at it! You might want to go to that costume party as Ansel Adams (Kudos to the fellow partygoer who gets that one). So forget Instagram! Go pick up some 35mm film and capture those memories with the real deal.
Have you perhaps thought of throwing a “mad scientist” themed party this year? Well why not? Then you can act as crazy as you want and use the same excuse all night! Just be sure you’ve got your trusty Plasma Globe handy when you talk gibberish about taking over the world. The best thing about this particular globe (besides the added science factor) is its sound activation feature! So now you can light your mad world up with your evil fingertips or the most insane laugh you can muster. Or with the party’s music, your choice.
So now you are ready to throw the most epic Halloween party EVER, and then you can ask your guests, what exactly is the Monster Mash, anyways?
