Halloween Character Makeup For Dummies And A Donkey Riding Reaper.

Halloween Character Makeup for Dummies.

Yep... that pretty much covers it. There's now a "For Dummies" series for everything in existence. Spotted a rack of these makeup kits in a Halloween shop over the weekend, and while they don't look any better or worse than other brands, they're not really offering anything new.

You'd think if the Dummies people wanted to break into the Halloween market, they'd show up with wicked new prosthetics instead of just slapping their logo on generic wounds. You know, makeup kits with names like "Psycho Leech Attack Victim!", "Eyes Gouged by Defective Robots!" and "Vomited on by Lava Monsters!". Those are the kind of products that would truly take seasonal Halloween stores by storm. But hey, if they want to release bland kits like "Body Hits" and "Vampire Bites", I suppose that's their prerogative. I just think that by choosing such a route, it becomes clear to us all who the real dummies are.

There are plenty of new things in Halloween stores this year that are well worth your attention though. After all, have you ever seen an inflatable Grim Reaper riding an evil donkey while looking both ways before crossing the street? Well, you're about to:

Safety first. Murder later.

Add some armor + red hair to it and you could try to convince people that is Ganondorf's horse from OOT

Those makeup kits are very generic. I'm calling lazy on this one.

Everyone knows that death rides a pale horse. :(

You know what? I'd like for 20 years from now to hear a 30 year-old say, "Man, you remember those Spirit Halloween shops? Those were so cool. These kids now don't know what...", etc. etc.

My guess on the makeup kits are they are trying to instruct people on how to apply appliances and the makeup. A complex appliance would defeat the purpose of the "for dummies" bit.

This is actually a MUCH NEEDED book! I don't know how many times I've seen appliances applied improperly. You shouldn't be able to see the seams people!

I'm waiting for the Dummies series to jump the shark and release their "Dummies for Dummies" ventriloquist product line.

Nice to know that death follows the green cross code. Safety first, kiddies.
