2. Make a Necronomicon
Cast a spell on your friends and family and recreate the Book of the Dead from the Evil Dead.
3. Bake a Cthulu pie
In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu bakes at 180 degrees.
4. Turn yourself into a Dune sandworm
When it comes to Halloween costumes, we say go Shai-Hulud or go home.
5. Make an Edgar Allan Poe-inspired Halloween Wreath

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”’

5. Lay a dragon egg
Now, if you really wanted to add a touch of Game of Thrones to your Halloween party you’d slaughter all your guests – but that’s illegal.
Instead, channel your anger into pushing a bunch of pins into a styrofoam egg. Congratulations, you’re basically the Mother of Dragons.

10. Carve a Pennywise pumpkin

11. Make (and then eat) some Frankenstein marshmallow pops
Bonus: if this recipe goes tits up then you’re just staying true to the spirit of Mary Shelley’s book.
