I did a little Wal-Mart Halloween shopping today and picked this up for a client. The $4.97 price for so much product was phenomenal compared to a $5 vial of blood I bought from Halloween Express a few days ago. Since the price was so good, I wanted to post a review on the quality.
The bottle is a full pint of blood, 16 fl oz or .47 L. There are indicator markers on the side of the bottle similar to a pint of oil. This would be useful if you could see through the bottle. Since the color is so opaque, the numbers are worthless. It was a good idea in theory though.
When I opened the container I was happy to see a safety seal.
I used an old paint brush as my dip stick. The outside sticker says it looks and flows like real blood. I totally agree with those claims. It coats the paint brush similarly to real blood and drips off in big droplets.
I painted a thin line on my hand. The blood is creamy, opaque, and a creamy consistency. After a minute it starts to drip down my hand.
I wiped the blood off my hand and did notice it stains. It would also stain clothes, shoes, and leathers. With a little warm, soapy water (Dawn dish detergent) it cleaned right off of my skin. I don’t think it would be easy to remove from fabrics.
I was very impressed with the Fun World Vampire Blood. It’s a great price, consistency, and very convincing. The back of the bottle says that it is not safe for eating, drinking or around eyes, so if you’re looking for a great eye blood check out this blog post.
If you’re concerned with ingredients, I’ve listed them below:
Water, imidazolidinyl urea, triethanolamine, hydroxyethylcellulose, propylene glycol, methylparaben, red 40, blue 1

1. I co-parent 6 silver laced wyandotte hens that I find mesmerizing. Does that make me weird?
2. My dog, Opie, was a hurricane Katrina refugee from New Orleans. He was a teeny tiny puppy when we adopted him. He’s a Japanese Chin.
3. He is now 9 years old and a wonderful companion.
4. I have a garden and am growing Cauliflower, Broccoli, Collard Greens, Peas, Turnips, Kale, Swiss Chard, and something else but I’m not sure what it is.
5. I bring my daughter’s 2 Guinea Pigs (Egbert and Charlie) out into the garden with me so they can forage. They have their own special “weed garden” I don’t cut just for them. Their own mini jungle.
