Vampire Bride

The costume used for Halloween 2010 and Desucon 2011. It is an old wedding gown from 1992 that I destroyed teadyed and painted to look old.

The design is based on my favourite musical, Tanz der Vampire, where the ensemblevampires wear the tattered (and gorgeous) clothes they were turned in x years ago while they claw their way out of their graves and sing about how eternity sucks. It's in German, but it's a catchy song, and there's a solid helping of costume porn in there.

I am a Pastafarian vampire so I don't shy away from Christian stuffs.
Given that the wedding gown was from 1992, it's probably inspired by lady Diana's frilly confection and meant to go over a crinoline. I decided to wear it with just a poofy underskirt. Because of the butt bows and everything that's going on in the back, it's already slightly bustled.

I get my fangs from Vampfangs.com. I have long ones, Sabers, that I used for Halloween, but for Desucon I used shorter teeth, so that I could speak without shounding laik I wash drunhk. (And the Sabers were sort of actually sharp, so ouch.)

Back and forth from the convention there were loads of moms who bent down to their precious pink-clad daughters, pointed at me and said, "Look at the princess!", only resulting in their utter mortification when they saw my big, toothy smile.
