I totally spoiled my guests last year. I don't know how long I spent on putting together these goodie bags. I kept getting idea after idea and by the time the party came around and I HAD to stop myself they weighed a ton. I made all the bags with standard giant size brown grocery bags and added my own straps and then built on top of that for the Necronomicon bags-- that was my main movie fixation for last Halloween on top of Silence of the Lambs, not that it shows or anything...



the image on the label is me, Undead.
Front of label: "Thanks ever so for coming"
Back of label:"Never do it again-- Luv and Chainsaws, Lorna"

contents overview:

My own personal highlights were--

The Ever Popular head in a bottle:
After everything I did to...er, for my guests they all thought this was the sickest party favor.

Dead Terrarium:
These satisfied my other obsession last summer/fall with miniature gardens. I made them industructable. Awesome fun to make these and you don't even have to take care of 'em!!! Everyone should have one.

Exorcist Bleeding Mary Night Light:
Hahaha. The base box was a Girl Scout cookie box...
You got your mary and the blood (now included) in a do-it-yourself kit. I can't do EVERYTHING for those people!

Lotion dans le panier:
I consider this my stroke of genius.

There was also a CD with handmade cover art-- nothing I shot myself unfortunately and I hesitate to post any of it because of that, but it had a brown bag slip cover and the cd case itself had lace-up sides like a straight jacket/corset. A total pain in the ass, with an adequate warning label that Tipper would be so proud of:

only now do I realize there's 101 typos and mistakes, but I remember making this at like 2am one night, so... oh well.
I guess if anyone's interested in a play list I could muster the energy to type it up later.

I had the usual candy assortment included-- blow pops, gummi tarantulas some chocolate I stole from the household trick-or-treaters stash, pixie stiX-- and then homemade pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (oh my god! Orgasm good people, I swear) and Black Forest chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin butter. Add to that eyeball rice krispie treats, and a bleeding chocolate cake at the party itself I'm pretty sure all my guests left wanting to throw up.
Good. Mission accomplished.:p

Nice Idea DLC... I have way to many people at my parties for that, but could do it for a special few.

I know this was posted a while ago, but thought I would share what I did since we have so many kids at our party.
I bought colored bags from Pat~Catans (craft outlet store), bought a couple buckets of those little foamies (halloween style) with the backs that have a peeling paper so they stick without gluing) set them up at the table and let the little monsters make their own goodie bags...then the would fill them throughout the night as they won games, etc.

For the bags: I took an idea from a fixation I had with making casts for battered barbies when I was little. It's nothing but toilet paper and water. Seriously. Okay, so there was a little glue mixed in too. You get a good enough base and then paint. Super easy.

The track list... well, that's gonna have to wait till I get home from work. ;)
