The strength of the vampire
is that people will not believe in him.
~ Van Helsing in Dracula (1931)
I believe! I believe!
It’s a very Vampire Thursday! Tomorrow is the English Department Halloween party. While we do not have a strict dress code, we advertise that participants should dress as their favorite literary character. Well, I’m not exactly participating in that and have had to stretch my imagination a bit to come up with a quasi-literary character. I’ll share that tomorrow though.
Today I decided to have some fun with my wardrobe while giving some vampire love. Speaking of which, Starbucks is even showing a little vampire love with their Halloween drink. It was cloyingly sweet and I tossed half of it. Aside from junk candy, I’m not a big dessert/ sweets kind of girl. Honestly, I think it was partly that the Starbucks workers weren’t sure how to say Frappula (umm, Dracula?!?) and they didn’t add the raspberry blood at the top. Hmph.
It’s a very Dress Barn kind of day. The jacket and the dress are from them. The shoes are Docs and the sucks (and by that, I mean SOCKS! Thanks to Prof. Z for noting my typo but I'm leaving it because it is funny!) are some vampire fangs. I can’t recall where I bought them. They’re not my only pair of vampire socks (and this was actually a necessity since it’s been so rainy here the last few days. Docs equals better parking spot because I don’t mind the mud!) I’m wearing my Nosferatu Hand Pewter Belt Buckle by Alchemy Gothic Jewelry. I have my Transylvania Manicure necklace collection by Kay Adams. When my hair is up, I’m using the Heidi Daus "Entangled Elegance" Spider-Designed Crystal Hair Comb.
