You’re bound to see vampire costumes for men at any Halloween party you go to. The good news is that, because vampires are so varied, there’s always a way to personalize your costume and make sure that you stand out from the crowd at any party.
The Classic Male Vampire
The classic male vampire has a long cape, black pants, a shirt and a vest. This is the way Dracula would look, with deep red colors and a frilly shirt representative of the time. Most vampires also come with long fangs for draining their victims, and a touch of blood on the side of the mouth helps to complete the look.
These traditional vampire costumes are fun to wear and can take a lot of work to put together. Thankfully there are a number of readymade options available to buy in stores if you want to save some time. That said, if you are attending a vampire-themed party, you might want to go for something more unique. A more modern vampire, perhaps.
The Vampire Lestat
Lestat has gone through a number of costume changes in the movies Interview With The Vampire and Queen of the Damned, so you have a good choice of costume already. In his later years, Lestat became a rock star. If you choose to go with this vampire costume theme you’ll want some leather pants, rock star shades, and a gothic rock star shirt. If you’d rather go for a more traditional look, then opt for Lestat’s Victorian period – full of lace, long coats and frilly shirts.
Eric From True Blood
Eric isn’t your traditional vampire. There are no capes involved, and he has very light, blonde hair. Eric tends to favor well-fitted clothing, especially dark leather while he’s working all through the night at Fangtasia. You’ll want to get hold of a blonde wig, vampire fangs and some white face makeup to complete his pale look. And you’ll need a dash of arrogance too if you’re going to play this Viking vampire.
The vampires of Twilight are also far from your traditional vampire image. The Cullen vampires have famous golden or black eyes, which you can replicate with contact lenses as long as you make sure they’re safe. If you want to look like Edward, get yourself a blonde wig and complete the look with dark clothing and small fangs.
