Dark Halloween Costumes
Vampire Halloween Costume Ideas
In the past few years, vampires have kind of lost their luster, unfortunately. These days, they're seen as more sexy than scary, so why not do your part to bring back the image of the evil, powerful dark vampire that people should actually be afraid of?
In a world that has forgotten Dracula in favor of Twilight, you can bare your fangs and hiss at strangers like vampires were meant to. Here are a few approaches that you can take with a dark Halloween vampire costume that is actually scary: However for those fans of Twilight I've included a sexy vampire costume idea as well.
Bloody DraculaSure, Dracula is supposed to be as seductive and alluring as he is scary, but he's probably more the latter when he's covered in the remains of his last meal. Put together a classic Dracula costume with elements that you can buy at a party store, and get some fake blood.
After you've finished doing your creepy makeup, squirt the blood everywhere, all over your costume. Have it dripping out of your mouth and down your chin.
Gross? Disturbing? You bet, but this is what vampires are supposed to be. They are blood-thirsty creatures of the night and nobody should forget this. These are dark Halloween costume ideas that we're going for here, so there's going to be some bloodshed.
Female Vampire (Vampirette)
When creating the perfect female vampire costume, the first step is to focus on the makeup. A generous portion of white-cake face paint is necessary, with a touch of red blush, black or blood red lipstick, black eyeliner, black or blue eyeshadow, and black eyebrows. If you do not already have long black hair, then you should either color your hair black or wear a black wig.
To make yourself look scarier, you can add some fake blood below your lips and/or on your clothing too. Make sure you wear clothing that you don't mind wasting if you're going to put fake blood on it.
As a female vampire, you'll want to wear clothing which makes you appear scary and attractive at the same time. A tight polyester black dress will certainly achieve this goal. But if you want to go all out on the vampire look, you could wear a black caplet that is open in the front. It should also have red satin style lining too. Alternatively, you can wear a black velvet dress with hanging bell sleeves. Your footwear can be black high heels or slippers.
Do not forget about your teeth. You can add some vampire fangs over your normal teeth. You can find these for sale in literally any novelty store. You can also purchase the fake blood there too. But if you go to a Halloween store which sells premium quality accessories, you should pick up a pair of vampire contact lenses for your eyes. There is nothing scarier than a vampire with red or green eyes.
To complete the look, you can add jewelry as an extra option. Perhaps you could wear a big red moon ring on your index finger and a black pearl necklace around your neck.
Sexy Male Vampire (Twilight)
At some point in recent human history, Vampires stopped being scary and they instead became sexy. Be a seductive, handsome G.Q. vampire with a dangerous edge this Halloween and hear the ladies swoon when you walk by. Here are some of the things that you're going to need:
If your face does not evoke the majestic proportions of Edward's jawline (from Twilight), then it's time to apply some make up and make yourself look immortal and youthfully perfect. Cover up your zits as best you can. Alternatively, you could also wear a mask.
Have you been doing sit ups until you're blue in the face so that you can have visible abs? The dedication is admirable, but that doesn't work. The only way to have a six-pack like a handsome and mysterious vampire is to have a low body fat percentage. Who has time for that, though? Instead of exercise, draw the abs on with body paint!
What makes a sexy vampire isn't what he has, but rather what he lacks. Like shame, for example. When he walks around shirtless (which is frequently), a vampire is sure to pause in front of a victim of his choice both to flex his muscles and to determine her blood type.
Alternatively, if the party you're attending is being thrown by squares and you need to wear clothes, then the only color that you can wear is black. Make sure that the loose shirt with the flowy sleeves that you wear has a low neckline so that people can admire your chest hair. Go to a thrift store and find something that you think a young, sexy vampire would wear to the high school that he inexplicably attends even though he's hundreds of years old.
Finally, the implement of death. No vampire is complete without a pair of teeth to sink into his victim's flesh to bleed her dry. You can find fake teeth at just about any party store.
If you don't mind staining your flawless face with some of your victim's blood, then by all means add to the authenticity. Let it dribble from your mouth or drink it from a pretentious wine glass. It's time to give the fan-girls at the party what they want! Be a handsome vampire and sweep everyone off their feet this Halloween.
The vampire costume that I have suggested thus far are somewhat beautiful in a macabre way, however if you want to look really horrific than choose the Nosferatu vampire costume. This is a little bit complicated because Nosferatu was bald and had pointy ears. So you will have to find a bald cap and do something about your ears. You can use elf ears and long fake nails.
Giant Vampire BatHave your ever run screaming down the streets at night while bats swooped down all around you? It can be an unsettling experience, even if they are usually more interested in mosquitoes than they are in you.
Lots of people are creeped out by these "rats with wings," and so dressing up as a vampire with no human consciousness. one that exists in real life may just be what the occasion calls for.
There are a few different routes you can take with this costume. One is the minimalistic and less scary one, and one is the more expensive and creepier one. For the cheaper version, you'll need some latex bat ears and some basic skill with makeup. After you paint your face, add some fangs and a pair of black wings from the party store.
For the more expensive and creepier version, you'll have to do some searching. Find a bat mask, the more detailed, more disturbing and especially go for one if it includes hair. Next you will need a furry body suit and some brown wings, both of which you should be able to find online.
