Vampire Make Up Tips For Halloween 2012

Love them or think they utterly suck (hehe!), vampires have been big news for the past couple of years, and the trend looks set to continue this year when it comes to Halloween costumes. Supernatural action and the raw sex appeal derived from the uber popular Vampire Diaries and True Blood series means that more and more of you are looking to recreate the beauty, agility and fatal biting techniques of the newest crowned heroes.

True Blood Make Up


With a host of sexy vampire costumes flying out of our Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes collection faster than Edward Cullen up a mountain of trees (‘better hold on spider monkey’ bleeeurgh), we are often asked for tips and tricks when it comes to completing the look in regards make up and hair.


Firstly, no vampire costume is complete without a set of fangs. Scarecrow are the world renowned manufacturer of the most deluxe and sought after fang caps – designed to affix to your own teeth, ensuring eating, drinking and talking are not hindered at all. Our most popular style are the Scarecrow Love Bite Fangs, natural looking, with a healthy shine and come complete with a simple adhesive mixture, ensuring a quick and easy fit.

Scarecrow Love Bite Fang CapsThe Scarecrow Blood Tipped Fangs are a fabulous alternative, with the same natural colouring and easy to apply moulding adhesive, but with the added effect of a prominent blood drip at the very point of the fang.

Scarecrow Blood Tipped Fangs♣♣♣♣♣

Depending on your costume, and the style of vampire you wish to achieve, there are a range of professional looking wounds and scars that can add a unique, finishing touch to your completed look.


Vampire Bite Scar Prosthetic

The Vampire Bite Scar Prosthetic is applied to the neck in a similar fashion to a temporary tattoo and creates two distinctive fang marks. Add some fake blood to the latex piece for added gore.

Woochie Stake Prosthetic The stake through the heart prosthetic from the fantastic range of Woochie wounds and latex has been specifically designed for the traditional vampire look. Amazingly authentic looking, this easy to apply addition will impress anyone at your chosen Halloween event.

Woochie Vampire Face ProstheticProbably the most popular of the Woochie prosthetics is the Transylvanian Face appliance, creating a unisex, dipped, sinister brow effect. Combine with some white face paint and a pair of fang caps to create the truly film quality look.


Costume wigs are always a great option when it comes to coordinating your locks with your completed outfit. For the men, the now famous Robert Pattinson style from the Twilight films is perfect for the fashionable indie vampire.

Edward Cullen Vampire Wig

For the women, a jet black pin up style with a deathly pale face works well with a whole host of vampire looks. Keep the hair away from the face, making the eyes and lips the focal points.

Costume Inspiration: High School Of Horror

High School Of Horror Fancy Dress CostumesWe can’t help but think that high school would have been a lot more interesting had  it involved a load of crazy zombies – geography would have certainly been more entertaining. Live the rather macabre MTV fantasy for Halloween 2012 in one of our many costumes from the famous High School Of Horror collection. The zombie school boy and girl costumes were a big hit last year, with the zombie prom queen proving popular among our fashionista customers. This year sees the release of the fabulous Zombie Lollipop Lady Costume along with her ‘DIE’ sign plus the Zombie Sports Teacher outfit, resembling a certain terrifying Glee character – even without all the blood and gore. School is most definitely in fashion this October, and all of these super duper outfits can be found in the Halloween Fancy Dress online collection.

Costume Inspiration: Vampires

Vampire Fancy Dress CostumesOur love of those dastardly, blood sucking fiends has failed to wain thanks to the cult following of the Twilight Saga books and films and those uber sexy, uber gruesome TV shoes – True Blood and Vampire Diaries. There is something rather seductive and overwhelmingly appealing about ‘the cold ones’, and we’re not just talking about Edward Cullen, making us all wish that we could join the clans of the extraordinarily beautiful and graceful beings (we just won’t think about what they actually feast on). Halloween 2012 gives us a great excuse to dress up as a sexy vampire and take on the persona of the revolutionised heroes with oodles of costumes, accessories and prosthetics available to create an array of looks. Fangs are a must, most popular being the fantastic fang caps  that allow the wearer to talk, eat and drink without issue. Authentic bite marks and blood stains are easy to achieve with a little practice. Black and red are the traditional, and still most popular, colours when it comes to costumes, with a whole host of coordinating gloves, hosiery and shoes to choose from.
