It’s almost Halloween! That wonderfully eerie time of year when we dress up in fabulous costumes and consume mass amounts of unhealthy food and drinks! Yay! The best part of course is the costumes. What’s more fun than being a vampire for a day? You could go the easy route by hitting up a costume store and buying a cliché pre-made vampire costume, or you can make one of your own based on your favorite vampire character. Check out some vamptastic costume ideas below!
Skinner Sweet is the wonderfully wicked vampire from the highly popular American Vampire comic series – and he would make a kickass costume. All you need are some large vampire fangs, some rugged old west clothes, guns, a piece of candy hanging from your hat, and you are good to go.
It’s been done to death, but you can always go the classic Dracula route. Embrace your inner Bela Lugosi! All you need is a starch white shirt, black pants and a black high-collared cape. Then slick your hair back, pop in some fangs, and you’ve got the classic vampire look.
If you’ve got the body for it, then go for it! Please please go for it! Few vampires are sexier than Selene from Underworld with her super hot leather body suit. Get yourself a curve hugging leather catsuit and rock it.
Another Anne Rice character! I have seen Akasha costumes in the past and they were so good they won costume contests. Akasha is a hot and deadly costume to wear. It’s another one that requires a perfect body, but like I said, if you’ve got it, then go for it. Halloween is a day you can be free to wear whatever you like. This is a costume that may be hard to exactly match though, you have the incredible outfit and the gorgeous headdress. Not easy to find or make. But if you do it’ll be amazing.
The Master from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a costume I want to see SO badly. The guy looked horrifying! This costume would require some serious skills in special effect makeup. It would be so worth it to get it done.
Those are just a few of my ideas for character costumes. What vampire costumes do you suggest? And of course, who are you going to be for Halloween?
