Dexter x Jell-O Shots. Forget ill-fitting, odd-smelling rental costumes from the Halloween store. This year, we have a few ideas that are spooky, stylish, and guaranteed conversation starters. First up: Take everyone’s favorite serial killer, and add everyone’s favorite party favor. (The potent serum in Dexter’s patented syringes is clear—but we thought blood-red felt more appropriate for the occasion.) Instead of a rather expected plastic knife as a prop, pack this utilitarian Igloo cooler—it’ll match your look while keeping your shots cold. Just make sure you bring enough for everyone. Find recipes here, and everything else you’ll need below.
Catch Dexter Sunday nights on Showtime.
