Vampire costumes are easy to make and perfect for Halloween for either men or women. The most important part of the costume is to buy some plastic fangs, the rest of the costume can be put together using any black or dark colored clothing. It is important to use elegant looking clothing if possible, particularly for the upper part of the costume. You may also choose to add a black cape, preferably with a large upright collar. Women should use dark eye makeup and deep red lipstick. The result is a sexy, elegant costume that can be worn using many different styles of clothing as long as they are dark black or red in color, apart from the occasional addition of a white ruffled shirt.
