Best Way To Scare Adults On Halloween
Folks usually think that it’s a lot easier to scare kids than adults. However, this is not always true since most people can be startled out of reveries if you jump out at them, or yell in their ears when everything’s awfully quiet. You can effectively scare someone (in a harmless way) if you try to catch them unawares with a funny and foul prank. All you have to do is be careful that you do not scare your innocent victims out of their wits. So let’s look at the best way to scare adults on Halloween.
Ways To Scare Adults On Halloween
Create A Ghoulishly Gruesome Atmosphere
The first thing you have to do is create that perfect fiendishly foul ambience to give your audience or ‘victims’ the shivers. If you are planning on hosting a Halloween party or taking your guests out to some place most especially spooky, you will need to decorate the venue beforehand.
Use items like paper bats with gleaming red eyes (you can achieve this effect by using glow in the dark paint), fake spiders and spider webs, torn and wispy grey, black and white netting or gauzy material, dark colored flowers, fake black tree decorations, and more to decorate the place.
Bear in mind that with adults a little decor goes a long way, so keep the decorations tasteful and to a minimum so that they remain unobtrusive yet faintly (and hauntingly) apparent. You can play creepy music like the soundtracks from horror movies softly (loud music is a no-no) for an extra fiendish feel. Once you’re done creating your miasma of horror you can proceed to the next step.
Use Special Effects Make-up And Don A Scary Costume

Using makeup will help you look your part and make everything look more convincing if applied properly and this will help you in your task to scare adults on Halloween. You will have to purchase or borrow a special effects make-up kit at a store that sells theater supplies. Avoid using ‘makeshift makeup’ like nail polish, marker pens and poster paints to create your gruesome look as they are really rough on the skin.
You can use organic substances like beetroot juice for example in your makeup. You can also use prosthetics or fake ears, teeth and other items if it’s within your budget or in your possession. In order to look like a more believable character avoid using excessive makeup (too many fake scars is a bad thing). If your costume comes with a mask then you needn’t be too particular about your facial makeup but focus on making other visible body parts like your hands look more foul and hideous by using fake claw-like nails and makeup.
Choose costumes that best suit the selected horror theme or character you have chosen, or if you are dressing up as a character from a movie or book follow its description to create costumes, etc. You can also purchase or rent ready made Halloween costumes. Sites like Party City, eBay and Buycostumes offer a nice variety of costumes for sale so you can take your pick.
Bring Out The Play Actor In You And Play The Spook
Once you’re in costume you can get set to scare the socks off your adult guests. You can either enact scenes from your favorite horror movies to amuse them and give them goose bumps, or you can play a couple of harmless tricks on them. Alternatively, with the help of a few friends you can arrange a delightful horrific scene of your own making.
For instance, you can set up a gory death scene and pretend to be dead if you can keep a still face, or have someone tell a scary story and then at the climax creep up on your guests dressed as the fiend of the story, etc. With a little brainstorming, a little creativity, and maybe a horror film or two you can have fun scaring adults on Halloween.
