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. However you can bring back the image of darkness by wearing a vampire cosutme for Halloween.
Sure, 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.
• Bloody Dracula
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.
• Vampirette (Female Vampire)
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.
• Nosferatu Vampire
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.
Have 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.
• Giant Vampire Bat
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.
