45 Blood-Splattered Innovations

From Serial Killer Cakes to Gory Wound T-Shirts

— May 21, 2014 — Fashion
Thanks to such television shows as 'Dexter,' 'Hannibal Lecter' and 'The Walking Dead,' people have become increasing desensitized to gory violence; these blood-splattered innovations target those with iron stomachs. Whether paying tribute to one's favorite TV program, decorating for a Halloween party or simply displaying one's intolerance for bloody grotesque scenes, these blood-splattered innovations offer relatively innocent inspiration.

These blood-splattered innovations include wall decals that take on the look of splattered blood, prompting would-be forensic analysts to practice their budding skills. There are also decapitated cake heads and jewelry pieces that look as though someone has been enthralled by a vampire. Although not made for everyone, companies are taking many liberties to appeal to those who are big fans of media and other horror genre influences.
