DIY Female Vampire Costume: How to Slay Halloween
With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your costume. One of the most popular Halloween themes is the vampire. From Dracula to Twilight, vampires have been a Halloween staple for years. But why go for the typical male vampire costume when you can add a twist and slay in a DIY female vampire costume? Here’s how to create the perfect one.
1. Dress the Part
The first step in creating the perfect female vampire costume is dressing the part. Instead of going for a typical black dress, opt for something Victorian-inspired, with lace and ruffles. A corset with a long skirt would work well, or a simple black blouse with leather pants or skirt. Don’t forget to add some sexy black pumps or boots to complete the outfit.
2. Fang-tastic Makeup
Vampires are known for their pale complexion, so grab a light foundation that matches your skin tone, then set it with translucent powder. Use a black pencil eyeliner to create a winged eyeliner look, paired with dark shadow for a smoky effect. Don’t forget to add some red lipstick (or even black if you’re feeling daring), to get that vampy look. Make sure to add some fake vampire fangs, too!
3. Glittering Accessories
No vampire costume is complete without some added accessories. Add a touch of sparkle with glittering jewelry like bracelets, earrings or a necklace. If you have long hair, try some loose waves or a messy up-do complete with a lace veil. And of course, no vampire costume is complete without a cape. Grab a black or dark red fabric, and attach some chain or lace detailing for a more dramatic effect.
4. Bloody Details
To add some dimension to your female vampire costume, add some ‘bloody’ details. Cut some holes at the bottom of your skirt and dip in fake blood so it appears as if it’s stained. Add fake blood around your neck to simulate a bite from a fellow vampire. Be creative and have some fun with the details.
By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to create the perfect DIY female vampire costume that will leave an impression on all those around you. Go put on your costume and get ready to slay Halloween!
