Vampire fancy dress may traditionally be reserved for Halloween, but with the vampire craze sweeping the globe there’s nothing to stop you from having a gothic-inspired outfit (or event) at any other time. It’s the perfect opportunity to really go all-out with your costume, whether you want the traditional caped look or something on the raunchier side of things, ensuring you can be part of the gothic trend at any time of year.
The rise of the vampire
Dracula is the novel that started the whole thing. First published in the late 19th century, it was the birth of the modern day vampire story and has inspired countless films, books and TV adaptations ever since. It wasn’t until Interview with the Vampire came around that we really had an alternative, and since then there’s been a huge resurgence of love for the genre.
Over the last few years we’ve been bombarded with novels, films and TV shows putting the vampire at centre stage with Twilight perhaps being the most well-known vampire franchise of them all, and it’s a craze that doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon – this year will see a huge number of vampire-related film releases with Dark Shadows (the newest Johnny Depp/Helena Bonham Carter/Tim Burton collaboration, due to hit screens this month), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Byzantium being just a few, and there are even rumours floating around about a Buffy remake.
