Halloween Outfit: Vampire

shirt All Saints // Robocop leggings StyleStalker // shoes and gloves Topshop

For years I have managed to dodge the obsession with vampire themed media like Twighlight and True Blood. Then, one day when I was bored and just finished the entire Arrested Development series, I searched on Netflix to find something to entertain me. I came across The Vampire Diaries which has never interested me before, in fact when I sad adverts on the TV I thought it was ridiculous. So naturally, I started watching it telling myself it was to prove a point, to prove that I was right and it was crap. 3 series later, realised that I am now truly addicted to the show. Not only am I successfully charmed by Damon, the evil gone good vampire in the series, but the mix of supernatural characters, life dilemmas and a confusing love story makes for a very balanced show.
Vampires started off being depicted in films as bald, creepy but clever men like Nosferatu, which then all changed and vampires gained a sex symbol status in popular TV shows and Hollywood blockbusters. Remember Angel and Spike from Buffy? Now there's Edward Cullen and Stefan and Damien Salvatore to match that. I started reading the original Dracula book not so long ago, and although Dracula is described as a balding, middle aged man with a large mustache, pale skin and sharp ears (not exactly an idea date) there is something very alluring about him.
I took the idea of a sophisticated and sexy vampire and created this look. I really enjoyed wearing long gloves with a structured outfit, I think it's an item which I will utilise a lot more this Autumn.

Hope you enjoyed this look and here's a question for you: which vampire character is your favourite?

  4. Whoa, this is so awesome! You look gorgeous! There's a slight steam punk vibe coming from this outfit and I freakin love it!

    Haha, I guess the vampire mythology will always mesmerize us. I had a glimpse of "The Vampire diaries" and really didn't like it, it was too teenage-y for me (if that's even a word :D) Buffy forever!!!!! :D
