Hey all, sorry to add another 'help plz' thread, but need some inspiration from you halloween geniuses!
I was giving serious thought to going as Dracula (massive red cape costume, worn in Castle Dracula) from Bram Stoker's film (see pics attached). Was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to achieve this.
For the costume, I was going to try and find a red satin kimono/dressing gown, along with a cape in the same colour of material and wear it over a sort of white nightgown. The cape from the movie is MASSIVE (think 10ft train!), so I could get some fabric and sew it on to give some extra length, and then I could get some gold fabric paint to add the gold embellishment. Any thoughts on this, or can anyone think of a better way of doing it (not the worlds best sat sewing!). Any help would be really appreciated!
The wig should be simple enough; get a white wig from the costume shop and style it with mouse and hairpins. As should the make-up - latex for the ear detail, off white cream makeup with blue for the veins, so it's just the costume I'm struggling with! And not forgetting, of course, the long fingernails, and furry palms :P
P.S - Sorry for the crappy pics...I couldn't find any good stills of the costume!
