Oscar Party 2008 Sweeney Todd - need recipes - help

I am stumped! What do I bring to the Oscar Party - I have bring food that has a Sweeney Todd theme.

Mrs. Lovett's Cornish Pasties? Meat Pies? Too simple.

Help me out - I want something with body parts visible? Bones made of dough? Hair? Eyeballs? Barbershop theme?

    1. how about a more subtle approach? something with blood oranges, perhaps?

      1. From the lyircs of "Have a little priest"

        "And we have some shepherd's pie peppered
        With actual shepherd on top!"

        ... of course ... not with actual sheperd.

        A pie or cake covered with whipped cream like shaving creme You could get creative with the decorations ... maybe some peppermint sticks for barber poles or sprinkled with coconut to simulate whiskers.

        1. A meat pie, a Good one isn't simple, takes skill.

          I bet a search of "halloween" party food will gives you tons of body part food ideas.

          Off hand.a Bloody mary with a white asparagus spear instead of a celery rib?

          1. Spaghetti squash w/ eyeballs... i mean meatballs.

            Do filo wrapped around little hot dogs... they'll look like bone with marrow.

            mutton chops

            lady finger drizzles with bloody red jam

            deviled eggs with olives for eye pupils

            Blood and Bones (Tomato soup w/ cheese straws)

            1. re: Emme

              Reminds me the fish head soup I had the other day at a sushi joint.
              Half head, big eye included.
              Eyeball comes off, you put it whole in your mouth and chew.
              Pretty good.
