What Do Vampires Look Like?

Over the years vampires have taken on various appearances, be it sophisticated or monstrous. The most popular and well known vampire look mostly due to Bela Lugosi and his role in the old Dracula flick. Christopher Lee and Frank Langella later helped to reinforce Lugosi’s look. You’ve got the male vampire dressed impeccably in classy evening wear, slick hair, satin cape and long white fangs. Then the female vampires (who are also horribly stereotyped) are usually tall, perfectly pale, have bright red lips and are found wearing incredibly sexually provocative clothes. Sounds familiar right?

Fast forward a few years and you have today’s idea of how a vampire looks (it usually involves glitter). Most modern vampires haven’t strayed too far from the vampires in those old films, they may have ditched the cape but they still dress impeccably smooth. Perfect body, perfect hair, perfect face, perfect eyes…etc. The men are still seductive and the women are still sexy.

Now, if you ignore the entertainment world and take a look at traditional folk vampires you have a whole different view. The common vamp in Europe usually appeared in its raggedy burial clothes or its grave shroud. Its stench from the dried blood of victims was so awful it instantly triggered the gag reflex. It often had red glowing eyes, long blood-covered fangs and was totally grotesque in every way. Sexy huh?

But in other countries vampires weren’t always completely human. The Chinese kuang-shi was covered in greenish fur, the African adze looked like a deformed dwarf or a firefly. Then you have folk vampires that don’t look humanistic at all. There was the vampire cat of Nabeshima, the giant bird-like aswang, the watermelon vampires of Yugoslavian lore, and even a vampire chair.

So what have we learned today? That vampires have countless looks, it just depends on what book you’re reading or movie you’re watching, or even what time period you live in.

    I think there are no Vampires…
    It’s just a fantasy story…
    But imagine there are some… They would reign the world or not..!?

      They do, they are called the illuminati. Research it, watch ‘The Arrivals’ documentary o youtube from part 1, they killed the key witness of 9/11, as they planned this all. To help them eventually rule the world by turning humans on each other, the fastest way to rule, along with their control of world power and turning the most powerful/rich into them. They are the modern day vampires as they drink and spill blood for their own reasons.

    vampires look like everyone else. you dont notice them. they could be sitting next to you on a bus or walking next to you on the sidewalk. you cant tell them apart from everyone else. and their eyes well everyone says their eyes are different colors but they arnt. vampires can also eat normal food when they need to but blood is best for them. some wont eat normal food but most do cause they want to fit in. but if they dont they can still go for weeks without blood.

    • you are correct emily. i am a vampiress i havent told my friend im looking for the right time. wonder when that will be.
