Dead Celebrities

Raise the dead on Halloween by inviting friends and family to come to dressed as their favorite celebrity -- favorite dead celebrity, that is.

Marilyn Monroe and Elvis are both popular dead celebs, but who wants a dozen Marilyns around the punch bowl? Maybe you, but wouldn't it be more fun to encourage your guests to think beyond those graves. Actors and actresses are popular, glam it up as a rock star or dip into a favorite author or historical figure.

Mummies and zombies are welcome, as long as they were once famous, of course.
