Add a few limbs to your punch to give it some kick.

Step 1: Wash and weight

I purchased new limbs but you can easily find doll parts on ebay or at many thrift stores. You'll want fairly large ones and they should be vinyl and not porcelain. Wash them well in a dishwasher or by hand and use some heavy washers or bolts (that also should be washed) to weigh the open ends of the limbs down. Stainless steel would probably be the best material to avoid nasty chemicals in your brew.

Step 2: Serve your favorite punch

A mixed drink that you can't see through looks best. Having fruit, sorbet, or ice floating adds to the effect and definitely serve out of a big kettle with a hefty ladle. Yum!

Speaking of adding nasty chemicals to your brew: Dolls are not subject to FDA Approval, and thus can contain unsafe levels of not only BPA but other vinyl additives that are actually poisonous to the human body. I would suggest sealing your body parts with stretch wrap, or coating them in food-safe shellac.

 you could even fill the limbs with water and freeze them to replace some of the ice and prevent it from getting watered down

This is an awesome Halloween idea!  By the way, for the post that wanted punch recipe.  It's like this If I'm not mistaken:
Nice job on the limbs though... I think I'm going to try making the punch really red with chunks of strawberries, might make it look undrinkable though.  Haha.  Thanks for idea!

mabey even use a baby bath for a punchbowl, but that might be going too far.

Fruit punch soda & O.J. or frozen strawberry's, or grenadine,anything bloody looking and any alcohol I think might look cool . mabey there is a way to make blueberry and milky whit Ice cube eyeballs. that would LOOK spooky. or mabey you can even find doll limb molds and use food coloring or fruit juice color and a little milk or cream and make actual edible frozen doll limbs for ice mabey even on a stick , like a popacycle or an armcicle . good job.

Great idea! You could put the limb in a paper cup in the freezer making a weight on the open end. Just peel the paper cup away and drop it in.

I don't know how well it would work, but you could try filling the limbs with water and then freezing them. That way they would look neat and help keep things cool.
