Now, since flicks such as Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, etc. are all over people’s minds this season, dressing up as Alice Cullen or Katherine Pierce will hardly do good to you if you’re contemplating on being different and making your presence felt. So, to save yourself from losing your senses, I’m going to suggest some great ideas on homemade vampire costumes for women which will be innovative, and would not cost you a pretty penny at all!
Ideas on Vampire Costumes for Women
Terror shrilling and blood spurting out of a man’s neck, and a fair maiden basking on that blood, loving each and every drop that comes out… guess what, that fair maiden is you! The first step to be a vampire on the big day is to act like one. This one’s not expensive at all, is it?
Now, the next step is to decide what to wear as a sexy Halloween costume within the vampire domain. Too conventional as it may sound, colors black and red define a vampire! So, you better make sure you own a black dress before deciding on dressing as a vampire on Halloween. Remember, the shorter it is, the better it is! (wink)
So, to make a traditional but great vampire costume for yourself, use a red lace all along the hem of the dress. Reds and blacks all over, design it the way you want. You could add different types of accessories in red to make your black outfit even more attractive. Next step is to take a red scarf or a shawl. Fix it as if it’s a cloak around your neck. A long shawl or scarf reaching right up to your feet is the best pick!
But all my friends are wearing black and red… Oh, no problem, ladies! Even though black and red colored outfits are the most common vampire costume ideas, you could always go for something that’s too unconventional. Something like a long frilled evening gown with a wide neck. You could add frills of your choice to a basic long evening gown, and wear antique jewelry with it. If not a jewelry piece, you could tie a band around your neck to add to your ‘vampirish’ appeal.
However, remember, the gown should be of a dark color as dark is what Halloween is! A dark long frilled evening gown with high heels can also be a great option for fuller-figured females who’re looking for plus size vampire costumes for women. As for the hair, you could tie a bun or curl them so that they go well with your frilled gown.
So what? I still wanna dress up as Alice or Rosalie Cullen… Okay, okay, teen beauties! This one is the easiest if you really want to tog out as one of the Cullen damsels that night. All you’ve got to do is, pick up a regular pair of jeans, a white shirt, and a brown or black waist-coat. If you’ve got blonde hair, why not go for the look that Rosalie has? You could just pin a couple of strands like her, and leave the rest of the hair open. Wear a sexy leather jacket which will add to the seductress quotient.
However, Alice has her signature necklace and hairstyle. You could go for a similar brunette look by wearing a wig in the same style, along with that piece of necklace that she wears. Also, some silver bangles would enhance your look. Just remember, if you’re dressing as Rosalie, try to bring in some attitude in the way you walk. On the other hand, if Alice is what you’ve settled on imitating, show the bubblier side of you to people just the way Alice does!
Shoes to Wear with Vampire Costumes for Women
Ladies, no matter how sexy you already look, boots will add to your seductiveness. Boots with high heels, preferably black in color (duh!) will give you much of a ‘vampirish’ feel. Just imagine, a short black dress, sexy legs, a red cloak, and those high-heeled black thigh high boots…Whoa!
They might sound too conventional, but they’re bound to look sexy on you. After all, black was, is, and will always be in fashion! Same is the case with dressing up as one of the Cullen females. After watching The Twilight Saga for I don’t know how many times, I noticed all the females wearing high heel boots many a times, which looks extremely royal and graceful on them. You could go for a similar look!
However, if you’re not much of a boot person, any footwear that has high heels is a great choice. You could go for black or brown shoes as they go with almost everything you wear, and look extremely elegant, thereby, adding to that graceful feel as you walk.
Vampire Make-Up for Women
This is my favorite part! It’s the favorite part of every woman, I know. So, to start with, we all know that vampires are pale white in complexion. So, firstly, use lots of white all over your body. Remember, you have to pay extra attention to your makeup if you’re wearing a short dress which flaunts most of your body parts.
The application of white should be sufficient on all parts of the body. If you’re dressing up as one of the Cullens, you could go for some sparkles too! As we all know, vampires are shimmery, you could apply golden or silver sparkles all over your body.
Secondly, the most important thing is the teeth. Of course, we all know that vampires have a pair of elongated canines. Go, grab a pair of artificial canines from a store to enhance your vampire costume. Other than that, there is a variety of teeth patterns for vampires available in the market for you to choose from.
Thirdly, go for Gothic make-up. vampire eye makeup is soaring high among teenagers ever since the Twilight Saga released. Use lots of black on your eyes, and use shades of red as your lip color so that it gives a look of a blood-sucker.
What’s more, you could also use artificial blood tripping down from both the ends of your lips. Read more on scary halloween makeup ideas.
Fourthly, vampire eye contacts can do it all for you! Red, golden, or even green eyes can efficiently enhance your vampire costume as you try to emulate your favorite character.
I think some Gothic creativity is surely required to create the best vampire costumes for women! Don’t forget to carry that attitude of a vampire seductress with whatever you wear. Just keep in mind, you can kill a person with not only your looks, but also with a mere bite of yours! (wink!) Along with that, behave profoundly, don’t blabber much, and carry yourself well. You’ll surely set the stage ablaze on the Halloween night!
