If you're struggling over what to do this Halloween, look no further - throw a perfect Walking Dead Halloween Party!

There's a ton of cool, simple ideas for minimum effort - maximum fun Halloween partying...just the kind I like.

Keep things atmospheric

Turn off the lights and use candle-light to hold onto that collapse-of-civilization feeling! You can also paint messages onto the walls like in the show: 'We first always' and 'Don't open, dead inside' will work a treat!

----------------------------------

Costumes at the ready...

Walking Dead costumes are easier than most. Getting dressed up like zombies is super-fun - just tarnish and splash some old clothes with fake blood (you can make this yourself from corn syrup and red food dye) - or you can just cover some old rags in dust for your post-apocalyptic 'I wear this every day cuz it's the only outfit I have' look...

-----------------------------------

Eat like Rick and the Gang!

You don't have to be totally hardcore and eat cold beans out of a tin - why not just wash up some tins after putting their contents in Tupperware, and serve your guests some hearty stew in the clean tins?

-----------------------------------

Whiskey. Always Whiskey.

Whiskey tends to be the drink of choice for the Walking Dead gang, but drinks have a pretty good shelf-life, so you can basically have whatever you want and you're still sticking to in-world realness ;)

-----------------------------------

Dinner a la Terminus

I'd stop short of serving up human meat, but there's no denying a big Terminus BBQ would be awesome, weather permitting. With a couple of umbrellas around your outdoor grill, you can knock up a bit of Terminus hospitality!

-----------------------------------

Keep it low-tech

It's fun to get into the mindset of the Walking Dead characters. Well, maybe not the crippling despair of lost loved ones, but playing swapping stories around a campfire, naming a 'Beth' to sing the group a song, spud-gun target practice in the back yard...simple old-fashioned games keep it real.

-----------------------------------

Of course, if this is all too much effort, you can always just have a Walking Dead TV marathon with some like-minded friends...
