We decided to go with some exceptionally gruesome suggestions to go along with this gorey shovel. It's fantastic to pair with a zombie costume who decided to be smart and bury himself with a shovel. (Makes it a little easier to come back from the dead.) Just to let you know we don't condone burying anything without a proper license. Corpses in your backyard can really mess with your neighbors' lawns.
The biggest hassle was removing the labels from the shaft of the shovel; they hung on like they meant it, and it took maybe half a dozen rubdowns with Goo Gone to remove the remaining glue.
The shovel has a good look, with bloodstaining on the front of the blade (but none on the back - what's up with that?). It looks like something Boris Karloff might have carried in The Body Snatcher.
Some durability might have been sacrificed in the interest of safety; if your little graverobber smacks someone over the head with this thing, it likely won't make them even blink.
