Vampire costumes seem to be incredibly popular thanks to Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight and HBO’s True Blood. If you’re looking for vampire DIY Halloween costumes you’ve found the right article. What’s fantastic about DIY costumes is not only are you staying within a reasonable budget for Halloween but also you can customize it exactly how you want it.
If you’re a True Blood fan you may want to consider dressing up as Sookie Stackhouse. Her costume is incredibly easy to pull off. All you’ll need is a simple t-shirt, jeans and an apron. If you’re not already blonde then consider investing in a blonde wig. To make sure people know you’re dressed up as Sookie and not just any waitress you’ll want the famous vampire bite marks on the neck. You can either buy fake blood from any store that carries it and dab two little marks on your neck. If you really want to get into it visit a local MAC makeup counter (be sure to book an appointment and ask specifically for this design) and have them create a bite mark for you with make up. What’s great is you can make this costume revealing as you want. If you’re more conservative then cover up more. If you’re going for the sexy look then consider a shorter skirt and apron. Get creative and personalize the costume.
This is my personal favorite DIY Halloween costume. Everyone will be so busy dressed up as a vampire Halloween so it would be fun to dress up as the victim. As far as the outfit goes you can pretty much wear whatever! Again, if you’re more conservative dress comfortably. For a sexy victim consider wearing the sexiest dress you have around, throw on a pair of your favorite killer heels and some stockings. Either use a cloth strip or toilet paper and get some fake blood or food coloring. Soak the cloth/paper so that it looks like it’s drenched in blood and wrap it around your neck. You can either do your own make up or visit any make-up counter you’d like for a professional look. Since you’re saving money by making your own Halloween costume you can splurge a little by having your makeup down. My personal favorite is MAC because they’re edgy. Vampires are all about being edgy and sexy.
Again, these are all personal preferences. Have fun with it!
