Who hasn't read the Twilight
series of books, with all this vampire frenzy sweeping the nation? Most
everyone that loves the vampire genre has read them! The books are based
around the vampire Cullen family. Young Edward falls in love with the
human, Bella, which causes problems to no end. There are also werewolves
as their foes, Jacob wants Bella, too.
These books for young adults have set off a
renewed interest in vampires as the books are all being made into movies
that are raking in the big bucks. People of all ages are reading them
and seeing the films.
there was "The Sookie Stackhouse Novels", which HBO made into the "True
Blood" series. (Sookie and Vampire Bill pictured left)
The CW, well known for series like "Supernatural" came up with "The
Vampire Diaries". All of this has caused a resurgence of the whole vampire
genre over the past few years!
They all basically have similar plot lines.
A sexy human woman falls for a hot looking immortal vampire guy. Trouble
always ensues as they try and work out the logistics of vampire love.
Since vampires burn up in sunlight they can only meet at night with the
exception of Twilight. There's also the other supernatural beings to
deal with like werewolves, shape shifters, witches and what have you.
This creates a lot of angst and turmoil and people are loving it!
So far, there haven't been many costumes
made for the specific shows or film. We haven't found a Twilight costume
but did find and "Edward" wig. It's easy enough to put together your own
look from any of these shows. We utilized
some regular vampire costumes and morphed them into something that will
work for the whole Twilight phenomenon.
Doing Edward will be easy, you just need to
add pale makeup and an Edward Cullen wig along with black jeans, a black t-shirt and
an over shirt. Bella is human and dresses they way teens today dress,
skinny jeans and hoodies, so
that's not a problem either. But if you want a more vampire look, check out
