Vampire costume 09

Been looking for new costume ideas for this years vampire. This will also be the costume I'll be wearing for fright fest this year. So far I'm thinking of a Goth Metal vicotrian vampire. Know what I mean? If you dont know I mean someting closley resembling this




Diffrent hair and diffrent boots. I think those boots have too many straps and it's the first thing you see. I want platform boots but notsomething as distracting so I found these at Hottopic

THey still look goth and not to distracting from the costume and I think there good at 3 inches lol.

Pants I have some black skinny jeans that I'm going to paint silver pinstripes on too.


Have a deep blood red shirt and a black vest

Also have three things of finger armor that I got in January.

as for the tie have have a black silk tie but I found this and thought it's kinda cool and has that gothic metal victorian look.

I think it would look good.

Contacts...one word....Sclera's. Scelara contacts cover the entire eye eye and usually cost about $300. I found these that I think are perfect for a vampire and the price is actually not bad compared to the price for some.

Ok now the jacket. I want a tail coat but with a metal victorian twist. I have found a few. Dont want to spend any thing over $130 since the contacts will be a pretty penny. I have found quite a few so I want yalls opinion on this. Put in mind the look I'm going for.

Coat1 $59.00
This is the first one I found and as I look at it I like it less that the ones I have found now. The back could easily be cut into the clasic tail look and for about$59 is a steal.


Coat2 $74.99
This one is actualy a shirt but I think it has a jacket look. Also it has an advantage that since I'm outside all day it can get HOT. So a thin material might be a good thing I also like the back of it.

only problem is the front which buttons up. But I think it would be ok to leave it open. I could probaly figure something out

Coat3 $129.99
I really like this one. Not so much the price but somtimes you have to pay for good things. It doesnt have that "traditonal" tail look but it's still longer in the back which matters. I especially like the back

Tell me what you guys think! Opinions, Ideas, questions. Not just the coats but the whole costum in genral. It looks like things I'll have to buy will be boots, Jacket, and contacts and possibly the ascot thing. Like I said I hate spending money.

oh look, she got some grab bag vampire teeth. lol. hooch, it seems i remember you have some nice vampire teeth. okay, i love her lips and eyes. she could have done better on the blood dripping from her mouth. i would vote pale blue for the contacts. your outfit is fabulous. i love love love ruffles. your skirt is fabulous and so is the jacket. for shoes i am thinking clunkey, tie up the front, old fashioned goth.

oh, i forgot about your hair. i think someting punk. maybe a wig like david bowie wore in the labrynth. but have it black with a touch of red. i have a couple of wigs like that and they have led lights implanted in the strands of hair. all my haunters go wild about them

i think the shoes would look awesome. the touch of red in them would really pull it off with the red in the jacket. not a bad price for the shoes either. i also agree about wigs being to warm, they're also uncomfortable. your hair black with red streaks would look real good.

or how about black hair with a white streak?
is there some reason you want white? i'm one of those people it's hard to tell without seeing the total costume, and then seeing both hair colors on the costume.

hooch, did you ever finalize what hair you will be doing?

you guys are going to look great

gd WOW! YOU GUYS LOOK GREAT. I LOVE YOUR HAIR, and your costumes look great. you guys did so good right down to the shadowing of your eye makeup to your teeth. i don't think anyone could have done better. who did your hair? is your girls hair her own or did you do add ons. just a great job. really great!!!!!! the hat is really awesome, but if you wear it you will lose the hair effect. are you just going to carry it with you? as a prop like?
