I had to think of a quick, subtle and cheap costume to wear to work for Halloween this year, and came up with this idea. I work as a counsellor at a University, and wanted to try and integrate work into my costume. While looking around the office I noticed that I had tons of departmental pens laying around and thought: 'how cool would it be it is looked like one of my students disagreed with my advice and took the liberty of forcing a handful of pens through my chest?'
In total this costume took about an hour to make and only cost me about $5.00 and came out really nice. I found it easy to move around in, and I hope my students find it amusing.
This Instructable can be modified in many ways to suit your personal preference and environment. I hope you enjoy.

It is important to note that a light coloured shirt works best as you can see the blood much better. This would have little effect if you used a black or dark shirt.
