Have you ever wondered what your bathroom might look like if a psycho killer went bananas in your shower?  I have!

I was trying to come up with fun and cheap Halloween decorations to make this year.  I don't really have any "theme" to my projects (except Halloween!).  I've been seeing a lot of blood-splattered stuff around opsthe Internet and in Halloween sh this year, so I decided I would make a blood-splattered decorative hand towel to add a subtle Halloween touch to our bathroom.

It was just too much fun making the hand towel, and our bathroom is so small and plain, so I decided I needed to finish the job and turn my bathroom into a murder scene.

Here's What You Will Need:

Plastic Plate
Crimson / Dark Red Acrylic Paint
Isopropyl Alcohol
Red Food Coloring
Blue Food Coloring
Paint Brush
DESTRUCTIBLE White Hand Towel and Bath Towel
(I found a cheap hand towel and bath towel for $1 each at Dollar Tree, DO NOT USE YOUR GOOD TOWELS)
DESTRUCTIBLE White Shower Curtain
(I also found this at Dollar Tree)

Optional - LED Color Changing Shower head $15 on amazon.com for epic lighting effects during showers.

Take your acrylic paint and squirt a good sized amount onto your plastic plate.  

Add in red and blue food coloring (2 drops red to 1 drop blue, as much as needed to make it a light bloody color, it will dry darker.)  Mix well using your paintbrush.

Add in just a little bit of isopropyl alcohol to give it the right thickness (if it is too thick it won't run, too thin and it will)

If you add in a bit much too isopropyl, let it sit out for 5 minutes before using, stirring every minute or two.

make it, then invite the inlaws over, make sure to put a big kitchen knife in the sink or someplace they can see it, but dont make it bloody. then when they ask where their daughter is, do the whole "lying, trying to cover your self" thing.. "Uh, her? oh, yeah, she went out... umm with her new friend from work, yeah so I figured id invite you guys over so I wont eat dinner alone..yeah!" then wait till they use the bathroom....lol

SCRIPT FOR BATHROOM MURDER SCENE:

Slow fade in, front door of home opens. In laws walk in, sit down.

Homeowner:
Glad you could come over for coffee. Have you seen our new kitchen?

In Law:
Nope. Remodelling or something.

Homeowner:
Yeah, you could say that. Come let me show you.

The two of them walk towards the kitchen past the bathroom. The bathroom door (where the "murder scene" is) is closed, hiding it from view. Upon entering the kitchen, there's food on the stove cooking, a coffee pot .. and a huge butcher knife in the sink with a tiny trace of blood on it.

Homeowner:
Don't you have a daughter? Where is she?

In Law:
Not sure. She wandered off earlier.

Homeowner:
I heard she's been missing a while. I'm going to call the police and file a missing person report I think.

In Law: (acting very nervous)
Oh ... you don't need to do that. She'll be here shortly. Oh, where's the restroom?

Homeowner (walking back towards the closed door):
Right here. You're welcome to use it.

In Law opens the door to be greeted by flashing red LED shower light, and a realistic looking "murder scene" ... runs out screaming, peeing his pants on the way out the front door.

Homeowner: (to audience, Rod Serling style)
Well ... he DID ask to use the restroom. I was just getting it prepped for my halloween party. I do hope he finds his daughter soon!

Sudden cut to black.

I never thought anyone would write a screenplay based off my bathroom.

*tear* I am SO honored. My life is now complete.
Screenplay? its gonna be a hit movie! lol

Its even going to have the song "Horror Business" By The Misfits as its theme song. I swear, this song was made back in the early 80's, just for your bathroom...lol

Too much horror business
Driving late at night
Psycho '78
My bathroom is new

You, you don't go in the bathroom with me

Psycho '78
12 o'clock, don't be late
All this horror business

zacker wb7ptr1 year ago
Oh Thank you... they do have showers I suppose?
lol....
zacker wb7ptr1 year ago
lol... nice. reminds me of Dane Cook talking about his girlfriend playing the "What if game" she's always asking What if questions like," What if I threw all the food we just cooked out the window?" or while driving down a highway, "what if I grabbed the wheel and made us go off the road at this speed?" So he said he got her back by doing this: They went to a party at her parents house and he says to her, "hey, what if i came out of your moms room covered in blood and said, C'mon, we gotta go, NOW!?'
lol....
wb7ptr zacker1 year ago
I just COULDN'T resist!
Something like that really needs a script. Now, when I find a director, A.D., Key Grip, etc. and of course actors, we'll be ready for our first real production ... LOL!!!

Oh yeah, the whole thing had the flavor of a horror film set, so I had to give it the right "documentation" :)

"The Bathroom Murder Scene"
Directed by Lynn Magnuson
Starring all my friends on Instructables.com

Coming soon to a bathroom near YOU!
LOL

Invite the NEW girl friend home and invite her to use the shower to freshen up - and leave a huge carving knife in the sink.....

LOL


I think she will leave silently by the window....
*** snicker ***
Nice idea. This does seem easier than actually murdering someone.
True, but some people ARE worth the extra effort. :-)

Pretty cool though. All it needs is a red rug in front of the shower cut out in the shape of a person with white "tape" around it.
A really fun idea, Halloween or otherwise! Probably few other themes would be as theatrical.

Am I the only one to check this out because It reminded me that Dexter returns tonight?
lol... right? It reminded me of "Physco" first then i thought, "Thats right, DEXTER is on tonight!!" ...
SO EXCITED FOR DEXTER TONIGHT!!!!!!! :))) Have you been a fan since season 1 too?? :)
Oh yeah Season 1 started it all for me too. So tonight I'll have the cold beer and the phone unplugged. No interruptions!!!

I assume that the shower curtain is cloth and would require a liner to be functional? It would be trying to have to remove and replace it when showering otherwise.
TheProcrastibaker (author)  danny61141 year ago
It is a vinyl shower curtain from the dollar tree. We usually use a liner inside a more decorative outer shower curtain, so it worked well for us. The paint doesn't bleed on the vinyl after it has dried good and well, even if it gets a bit of water splashed on it.. Great point!
I would've guessed the paint would flake off the vinyl and leave chips on the floor if it was opened and closed very often. Color me surprised!
Awesome!! So creepy and awful - but in the best way! :)
This is definitely going into my favorites for some future Halloween. Thanks for sharing!
"Oh Gee Honey, You're so good with Yer' Hands"...HAR.!

Nice. You could also scrawl a bloody message on the mirror with your finger. After your party, the paint will clean right off the glass.
So gross and creepy! The dirty towel kills me...LOL.
