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.

Sooooooooooo sorry I've been absent for such along time! I've been so busy with everything and work takes up so much time. Fright fest has gone more than great! People are thankfully freaked out by me and there are just so many storrys I could tell. THe guests and everyone loves the finished product so I hope you guys are excited to see the final product!! There are so many pictures though and they'll take forever to post so you can take a look at them on the link below. It's the myspace that I created for the character. And don't worry you dont have to create an account or anything to view them. just click the main picture or view photos and it should take you the the pics. Also the album labled "park photos" is where you'll find pictures of the finished costume. Some of the photos aren't that great thought. Also under my photos there are some photos that know one has seen yet. I'll take some more up close pictures of the make up this weekend. Also there is a video on youtube but it has temporarly been taken down to be edited and should be back up soon! Enjoy! :D
