Due to the numerous films, you now have the choice to go as a modern day vampire, which basically means you can wear your own ‘normal’ clothing with the addition of some vampire fangs. All you need to do is add a couple of red dots, on one side of the neck (as if you have been bitten), and a pale face can also be an option.
And, the most modern way of becoming a vampire is to wear a vampire Morphsuit!
Today we say happy birthday to Sarah Michelle Geller, born 1977. Her main claim to fame, before she went to the darkside and became involved in Scooby-Doo movies, was to be Buffy the vampire-slayer. Back then, in the late 1990s, ‘new school’ vampires were a bit of a novelty (and even the ‘ancients’ who turned up on the programme didn’t go in for all that melodramatic ‘swirly cape and East European accent’ nonsense) and Buffy and her companions saved the world from netherworld ne’rdowells many times, up until the series finished in 2007. Since then, of course, everyone’s got in on the act: Publicity for the recent Muppet movie showed Kermit in a whole new light as a Vamphibian (now there’s an idea to be working on for next Halloween) and in the summer we will see a different side to one of the founding fathers of America when, in ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’, the president discovers that vampires are planning to take over the United States. It’s worth mentioning that although vampire attacks are rare, here at Props & Frocks we do stock vampire-slayer kits (sort of anti-blood-thirst aid).
