Vamp it up this Halloween

vampiressWith the 31st October looming fast on the horizon, here at Party Domain we are gearing up for the witching hour. Today let’s take a look at that old Halloween favourite: the Vampire. Ever since the legends of ancient folklore inspired Bram Stoker to create Count Dracula in 1897, we have been fascinated by these bloodsucking devils. These days vampires come in all shapes and sizes, from the uber-scary villains (Dracula, Nosferatu) to the tortured soul-less heart-throbs (Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Edward Cullen from Twilight) right down to the cutely endearing and even  educational (the Count from Sesame Street anyone?!).

Birds of a Feather star no longer the size of a sumo wrestler.

geishaActress Pauline Quirke is not quite the woman she used to be. In fact, she’s nearly half the woman she was only 8 months ago. Quirke, who currently stars in the popular soap Emmerdale, has lost 7st 3lbs since January following a meal-replacement diet. The 52 year old actress has admitted that the motivation for her weight-loss efforts came from a somewhat unlikely source – a documentary about sumo wrestlers! Weighing herself a few days after watching a telly programme about the infamously bulky Japanese wrestlers she was horrified to realise that she was tipping the scales at a sumo-friendly 19st 6lb. The shocking fact that she weighed the same as a heavyweight wrestler was just the kick she needed to start her weight-loss programme. Continue reading
