I need a really good recipe for fake blood?

I need to cover almost my entire body with blood for halloween. Anyone know any good recipes for fake blood that look real and will last all night?
I need to pour it over my head and body like Carrie….so something that dries and doesn’t stain everything it touches if possible

    there you go!

    Non-Toxic Blood

    1. Combine 1 part water with 3 parts corn syrup (honey syrup in the UK).
    2. Add red food coloring and mix gently by shaking or stirring. Continue adding drops until the shade resembles that of real blood. Add a small amount of blue food coloring to achieve a more realistic shade.

    3. Add a thickener.

    * Dry thickener – Add sifted flour or corn starch to your mixture, and gently mix it all again. You may get small lumps forming at the top of the mixture. Wait about a minute and they will float to the top where you can remove them.
    * Wet thickener – Stir in chocolate syrup until the desired consistency is reached. It will also add a realistic brown tone to the blood.
    4. Let the mixture sit for ten minutes in a warm environment. This will give it some time to thicken. And then you can freak people out with it, it is a lot of fun. Note: this recipe yields blood that is very sticky initially, especially in hair.

    Chocolate Blood (edible)

    1. Combine light corn syrup with red food dye until you get a shade that closely resembles real blood. You can also use a red drink mix(like cherry cool aid powder) instead of red food dye, although be warned this changes the flavor.
    2. Carefully add a small amount of cocoa powder to the syrup mixture to darken the shade and make the blood opaque like real blood.
    3. Finally you can either
    * Thin the blood by slowly adding water


    * Thicken it with a couple pinches of flour or cornstarch mixed in carefully and slowly

    This mixture looks great, smells great, and tastes like chocolate!

    Icing blood (edible)

    1. Put a small amount of icing sugar in a bowl.
    2. Add a few drops red food coloring until frosting reaches the desired color.
    3. If too thick, add a little water.

    Movie Blood (inedible)

    1. Pour about 3/4 as much alcohol-free, water-soluble hair gel as the amount of blood you want.
    2. Add water-soluble motor/radiator lubricant, any brand. This should be semi-opaque and slightly thicker than water. Start off with a very small amount and mix with the gel until it turns watery.
    3. Mix in about half as much red food coloring as there is liquid. Preferably, buy a "super strength" type at a bulk foods store to save money, and skip cheap, 1oz bottles; they look too pink.
    4. Add small amounts of chocolate syrup to make the blood more brown, and improve the thickness. It shouldn’t be too much like water, but still very dribbly.
    5. Add small amounts of hand sanitizer if you’re having trouble with a nice, drippy consistency. Be warned, this weakens the mixture easily.
    6. Check the mix. The final mix should be a little bit thicker than water, deep brownish-red, and about the opacity of milk. Unlike the non-toxic blood, it will not be sticky. When dribbled from about five feet, this blood will create nice "splatter" patterns, like real blood does. On skin it will flow easily and smear like the real deal. But, be careful how you use it. It can easily get everywhere.

    Jelly Blood (edible)

    1. Microwave 3-4 bottles of glycerin.
    2. Add one cube of strawberry jelly and mix thoroughly.
    3. Add 1/5 of a packet of gelatin.
    4. Add red food colouring.
    5. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
    6. Use for large wounds to simulate clotting.
    7. Splatter it on your walls for a Dexter Season premiere party!

    Peanut Butter Blood (edible)

    1. Use smooth or creamy peanut butter for best results. Chunky peanut butter will add a coagulated look, but is more difficult to work with.
    2. Slowly mix in corn syrup until the desired consistency is reached. As the mixture ages, it will thicken a bit, providing more realism.
    3. Slowly add single drops of red food coloring until the mixture is dark red; the darker the better – it will look more like real, drying blood.
    4. You can add a little bit of chocolate sauce or chocolate fudge for a darker color.
    5. Feel free to use in and around the mouth, or on items that may go into mouth. It should taste much like the peanut butter center of your standard candy peanut butter cup (especially if you add chocolate).
    6. If you want a thicker mixture, slowly add corn starch (in very small amounts to ensure even mixing). The solution should thicken with time.
    7. Mixture may stain clothing, so be sure you don’t want to use them for normal wear again.
    8. Read warnings!

    Soy Sauce Blood to Splatter

    1. Get the small plastic tubing and force it onto the end of the syringe. Use tape or glue to make this an airtight seal.
    2. Pour some soy sauce into a cup or bowl and add the red food dye. Add enough so the blood is dark red.
    3. Put the end of the tubing in the cup or bowl and pull back the plunge to suck up the blood.
    4. Use BLU Tack to clog the end of the tube. Make sure this is well clogged.
    5. Tape this under the clothing and push on the plunger
