Vampiress for a day


Since I'm one of many women who are obsessed with the Twilight series, I decided to be a vampiress for Halloween, even though the vampires in the books don't really resemble the stereotype at all. The occasion was the ideal opportunity to live out all my vampire fashion fantasies: the Urban Outfitters lattice boots, a velvet black coat with voluminous sleeves and hook-and-eye closures down the front, a short red dress with asymmetrical hem, matching red gloves, and a big sparkly black necklace for good measure. Once I covered my face with white costume paint and added a dab of blood to the corner of my mouth, I felt like I embodied the vampire vibe quite well. The only thing missing? A pair of sharp teeth. Even though I had two pairs, neither of them fit me well and I ended up not using either!

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween and lived out their fashion fantasies that day as well!
