The info card is creepy, we love it!
Every item we got fits perfectly in this blood-splattered tote bag. This is the perfect trick-or-treat bag and that is exactly what we used it for. This is a high-quality thick canvas bag and the straps are sewn on very well.
How cool and realistic is this tee shirt?! We love it. This is a great quality shirt too it’s nice, thick, and well made.
This Fx Transfer is so real looking, it applies pretty easily with water and with the right makeup looks so creepy on the skin.
Mehron Coagulated Blood Gel: This is one of the three different types of blood we received in this box. This is used when you need the look of a thicker blood that stays where you need it.
This is a wrist slice that my daughter did with the coagulated blood.
Squirt Blood is perfect for doing wounds and cuts that you need to be dripping or to puddle for the most realistic effects.
Tinsley Gel Blood: This is another type of blood that does not drip and is a dark red. This is not as thick as the coagulated formula but thicker than the squirt blood.
The 3-D gel can make wounds look as if your skin is dripping off even with a burn this gel looks just like real skin.
This bloody gauze will come in handy to make an injury look like you attempted to wrap it quickly, maybe before the “killer” finds you again? This is a neat addition to the box adding realism to your victim.
Also included in our box was a pin and 3 spatulas which are perfect to use when applying the gel and blood and making wounds, tears and scrapes.
I think that is is a really great subscription box for people who want to learn more about special effects makeup. We learned quite a bit about how to use different makeup products. My teenage daughter is the one who is really into this, she loves doing any type of FX makeup and did do a look with this box and then she went through a rough patch. I wanted to get more pictures of possible looks with these products but we just could not make it happen and for that, I apologize. This box had a retail of around $80 which is a pretty good deal because you get everything in one place. I think that this is a box definitely worth trying if FX makeup is your thing or if you are curious about it we absolutely loved it.
