Trying to Find a Vampire Costume

Guest post by Terrell House:

My oldest daughter wants to be a vampire this year due to the popularity of the Twilight series. The problem was deciding how she would dress since the vampires in the books don't really look like the traditional vampires with the black cape lined in red satin. They just look like normal people without special outfits. After setting our home security Alarm systems we headed out the door to shop. Since there was no specific clothing we were looking for we decided the best way to depict the kind of vampire she wanted to be was with yellow contact lenses, white face make-up and gothic clothing. She also thought adding some interesting sharp teeth might help it seem more like a costume than just weird. We bought the teeth at Halloween Express. We had a harder time finding the contact lenses without a prescription and had to order them online. We found a black button up shirt with a collar and some lacey trim at the thrift store. We also found a pair of flouncy black dress pants that completed the look. She also found some long necklaces with black and silver charms to complete the look. Her plan was to starch the collar on the shirt so that it would stand up for a more dramatic look. She wore black button up boots to match.
