Costume parties are fun, there’s no doubt about that. But one needn’t wait until Halloween to explore the world of creative costumes. One of the most popular costumes these days is vampire costumes. There’s got to be a point to all the Twilights and the True Bloods, isn’t it? Well, assuming you’re one of the die-hard (pun intended) fans of the whole vampire deal, here’s an article that will help you dish out a homemade vampire costume, for that sultry, dangerous look. Check out the ideas given here.
COSTUMES FOR WOMEN
You could also take a cue from the image here and go for a naughty look by wearing a black blazer with a red shirt and gloves. Comb your hair back sleek and color your eyes with dark liner. Wear red lipstick and carry a glass with deep red paint in it.
COSTUMES FOR MEN
Aim for a classic vampire look for the best effect. Wear a dark shirt with dark trousers. You can buy a ready cape or make one using soft red fabric like satin. Sew it together with black velvet and tie it around your neck or you can pin it to your shoulders. A set of fake sharp teeth and you’re ready to go.
If you want to do something unconventional, you can go in for a look that says vampire, but not bloody and thirsty. Aim to get into the skin of the sexiness and intrigue that is associated with vampires. Wear a dark shirt and trousers. Use aluminum foil or silver paper to make a stylish collar and get fake silver chains from a prop shop. Place them around your neck and you’ll be as stylish as a vampire can be.
COSTUMES FOR KIDS
For boys, it’s really very easy. All you need to do is get out their suit, if they have one, or just make them wear black pants, with a white shirt and a black waistcoat. Then, knot a bright red tie, and use flowing silk fabric to make a temporary cloak for them. A pair of fake, sharp, protruding canines, and your little vampire is ready to scare!
