A Fandom Halloween

What are some good fandom-related Halloween treats or tricks for an artsy foodie fangirl?

I'm doing another Secret Santa, this time Halloween-themed. My match is a photographer with a taste for the goth and dark, as well as something of a foodie. She LOVES Halloween and is currently planning a party just for the excuse to decorate and cater the event. She's also into things like tarot cards and ouija boards - not because she particularly believes in them, but because of the somewhat spooky aspect to them.

One of the main things about her is that she's part of a few fandoms. Specifically, she's into Star Trek, zombies, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Sherlock Holmes, American Horror Story, Whitechapel, and generally anything that is sci-fi or fantasy (except Star Wars). I'm trying to find out if she is also a Harry Potter or Welcome to Night Vale fan - I'm most familiar with HP fandom, not so much the rest.

What are some good fandom-related gifts that would totally work well for Halloween? I wanted to get her a Hannibal cookbook (food! Hannibal! horror!) but it seems it doesn't exist yet. I was also looking into fandom-based tarot cards but there hasn't been anything satisfactory yet.

Bonus points if it's based/ships to the UK, since that's where she is based.

I'm not sure what qualifies as suitably Halloween-y, but Doctor Who has a whole rogues' gallery of monster-y recurring bad guys, many of whom are thoroughly merchandised: look up Daleks, Cybermen, the Weeping Angels and the Silence in particular. Amazon.co.uk and Forbidden Planet should have lots of stuff. (Oh, and Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, is going to be in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies soon.)

Have you checked Think Geek? Doctor Who cookie cutters, zombie bowl, zombie attack apron, Game of Thrones cookie jar, zombie hand wine bottle stand, etc. And they do ship to the UK, though they're US-based.

There's a Game of Thrones Cookbook.

(I don't watch it, but Game of Thrones has a kind of creepy goth vibe, right? And as I understand it, a lot of people die....)
