Kind of a goofy entry but fun to play with. I taped the dart onto my hand and then covered it with strawberry jam. Didn't have any stage blood so jam had to do! Tape's showing some ... wish this was advanced so I could fix it!

I thought the plastic tips instead of the steel tips are what made the piece come together, after all it wouldn't fit with your title if they were real darts. Oh, I almost forgot, nice jam.

really good idea and photo, but the blood looks too fake. I would like to see this redone with realer blood. Thanks for the awesome pic !!!

Yow! Gruesome. Ketchup doesn't make a good blood substitute, as I have already experienced.
Nice dof and comp!

They are rubber tip darts, they will bruise, not bleed, nice idea, but not believable.

Should have used real blood instead of strawberry jelly (that is what it looks like). Nice idea...

11/29/2006 10:34:31 PM
is that strawberry jelly?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 08:37:38 PM
Is that jelly on your hand, or are you just happy to...oh, never mind. Creative.
