Jokes aside, shooting a background plate without the model and then bringing in the model is a good idea if you need it. You will need to use a tripod though so you dont move the camera between the shots.
:oP Tripod goes without saying. Personally, I don't shoot handheld unless I don't have a choice, or unless I need efficient flexibility (like at a wedding). That was one of the things that always stuck with me from photography school. Always use a tripod if you can (I even carry a bean bag for situations where there isn't room for a tripod or monopod).

Now ... if it's too cold, the turkey will be done a little too soon. hehehe

Great idea, but I'm trying to keep it as low budget as possible. I'm already spending close to $100 with the props (top hats are more expensive than I expected).

The flo lights, aren't they the LED blocks? I don't want too much light. The scene needs to be well-lit enough, but it still has to have a dismal mood. Too much light will spoil that.

nope, not the led just the tube lights. you can rent them. 4banks should be good. they dont give much light you'll need max aperture and slow speed on tripod. and in ur case will perfectly keep ur ambient street lights. maybe some hmi to light the scene.
