My girlfriend will be doing my makeup. Now, I'm the type of guy who despises makeup even for purposes of costume. But it's needed this time because even though I am naturally pale, I'm just not vampire level pale. So, she will be making me look a little more pale in the face and will be making my eyes look greyish and tired; sort of like I woke up from a comma.
The most exciting part is that I bought actual fangs for the costume. They come from Vampfangs.com and they are custom molded to your incisors. The snap in and out at your will and they look great. The ones I bought are called the "Scarecrow Natural Fangs" and they look a little something like this.
As far as my actual costume is concerned, I'm going very simple. I'm not going to look like the old fashioned Dracula, decked out with jewelry and a huge cape. I'm just going to have a long sleeve, light grey shirt and dark jeans. I'll probably put a link up to pictures of the party later next week. It should be fun.

Here's an older picture that's been floating around. It's a great way to harness the energy we already put into moving our cars for another purpose.
