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.
