Scare Tactics

Posted October 25, 2005
Last year, my friend Heather had a classic Halloween problem: how to merge her very sexy costume (Paris Hilton, and her best friend was Nicky) with the more gruesome spirit of the holiday. Her solution? “We were zombie Paris and Nicky!” If you’re looking for a similar way to add some holiday gore to your costume, check out Mehron's 3-D Gel, which molds to your face and lets you do all kinds of creepy effects, from black eyes to gashes and bloody lips. It’s safe, it washes off with soap and water, and next to a mask of your least favorite president, it’s the scariest Halloween product in New York.
