Make Blood Capsules

Autumn (or Spring, depending on where you live) is in the air, and you know what that means: Halloween. The most mysterious time of the year, the time when you can dress up and look foolish, watch scary movies and, of course, make blood. Blood for gore and spine tingling queasiness with your Halloween costumes––the blood capsule is the essential in props.


  1. Mix together the following ingredients: 10ml of golden syrup (any kind that is not dark syrup), 5ml or teaspoon of water, 2 drops of red food colouring, 2 drops of blue food colouring and 1 drop of yellow food colouring. Mix everything together in a jug.
    • If you wish, you may add a pinch of cocoa powder for a deeper red colour.

  2. Pour the fake blood into the capsules. The kind of capsule you're looking for is an empty gel capsule, which can be found at most vitamin stores.
  3. Remove the top from the capsule and carefully pour the fake blood mixture into it until it is full or half full. When you have filled each capsule sufficiently, place the top back on and close it tightly.
  4. Repeat this until you have made enough fake blood caps.
  5. When finished, place one in your mouth as needed. Let it warm up before breaking it in your mouth.


  • Fake blood can last for a long time. Be sure to store it in a closed bottle.
  • Gel capsules are safe and can be eaten and swallowed.


  • Though the blood capsules are safe, don't over ingest the capsules. Golden syrup should taste good, but too much could make you feel sick, spit it out and wash it out if not to your taste.
