Make your own Halloween Prop Coffin - Karnival Costumes online party shop Blog

Here at Karnival Costumes central we’re often asked how to make specific Halloween items from bleeding knives through to tombstones and larger decorative Haunted House props. Well why not get into the spirit of Halloween by learning how to make your own Halloween prop coffin! Once you have the basic plans laid out you'll be able to scale it up or down to make coffins for the whole family and even the failmy pet over a number of years. And as they age differently over the years it can only add to the whole effect. And if making a coffin seems like too much hard work, then at Karnival Costumes we have a good selection of Halloween Prop Coffins.

We all owe a great deal to the inventor of the Lego brick.  If you're like us and all grown up, then these building blocks have given us both hours of peace and quiet as well as frustration - and in equal measures.  And we all know that children love to play with Lego building bricks and all of us have fallen in love the Morph Costume Co version of the Lego Man inspired unisex fancy dress which is available for both adult and children sizes and just perfect for both Halloween and other costume parties.

Don’t let this be a miserable summer for English sports fans

Don’t let this be a miserable summer for English sports fans

English sport discussion in this blog by Karnival Costumes online party shop

With Andy Murray loosing in straight sets at Wimbledon and with the English cricket team back in the pavillion before you could say, well just about anything. And with the English football team enjoying a rest in Brasil, sure as heck didn't see many of them fighting for the Country nd it looked like they were all working on who next is going to pay them more in a week than most of us earn in a coupe of years not to mention some crafty tactics messing with Lewis Hamilton’s head which has seen his form fluctuate since, it’s not really the best early summer for English sports fans. Now it might improve but it doesn't look like it us so we're all for planning a sports themed costume party and showing them what it's all about!

Can there be any better party theme for any little boy with a big imagination than a Knight’s Tournament Banquet?   Let your little knight dress up in a suit of shining armour for his special day and the day can be filled with rescuing damsels in distress or fighting fierce fire breathing dragons.  And when the rescuing and dragon slaying is all finished they can return to their castle where there will be time for tea and perhaps some tournament games.
