Step 1: Pick a formal black outfit Pick an elegant black dress or a formal black suit from your closet, or find one in a used clothing store. Step 2: Secure fangs Buy plastic vampire fangs and a rubber bat from a costume shop. Make sure the fangs fit comfortably over your upper teeth. Tip Spring for moldable fangs and follow the instructions to make them stay securely in place all night. Step 3: Whiten your face After dressing, wash your face and then apply white powder with a puff or brush. Step 4: Highlight your lips Highlight your lips by making them very pale with a light dusting of face powder, or very dark with a deep red, purple, or black lipstick. Tip To make your face look even freakier, buy colored contacts—especially a disturbing color, like red, or a shade that is the opposite of your normal coloring. Step 5: Do your hair Slick your hair back with pomade or gel. If it's long, put it in a ponytail. Step 6: Use fake blood Dribble a drop or two of fake blood from the corners of your lips, and dot two small drops on your neck, spaced to look like fang puncture wounds. Tip You can purchase fake blood from most costume shops, or make your own with a few drops of corn syrup, red food coloring, and soy sauce. Step 7: Don your cape Don your cape with a flourish, and start practicing replacing your Ws with Vs. Did You Know? Bram Stoker's character Dracula was based on Prince Vlad Tepes, a 15th century Romanian known as "The Impaler" for his love of that method of torture.
