A tiny bit late Halloween post

It seems like many bloggers had a lovely Halloween and I too had a relatively good one. I've been buried under my studies (no change there) but I did manage to go to my student association's Halloween party. Since the common stereotype is that every day is Halloween for goths, it is not a big deal that I am a bit late with my post.

Me and my friend decided to dress with a mutual theme and we chose this old computer game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Nobody recognized us, of course, but we had a really good time.  We dressed as the two personalities of a one vampire: Therese / Jeanette Voerman.
We bought some fangs from the local costume shop and the fangs were no good at all. They were cheap but unusable. The shop did not have more expensive ones, so we had to take what was available because we were horribly late with the whole costume idea. We decided it about 48 hours before the actual party. In the end we did not even use the fangs but that did not matter. :)
I used that metal nail file in the photo to make those fangs a bit smaller but they were still really impractically big. The glue thingy did not work or I did not have the patience to wait it to work. The instruction was a bit vague about how long one was supposed to wait with it.

Here is an original photo of the character Therese Voerman, as you can see, she has decided to wear glasses, though I'm pretty sure her eyesight as a vampire is exquisite. Easy to dress as, so I am not complaining!

The much more useful product was moonlight white make-up, which worked really well, expect it dried up my face even though I had put a lot of moisturizer underneath. It looked good and that's what matters, right? :) Unfortunately the lighting was not good and hence it does not show well in the photos. Life's small annoyances, eh?
This beautiful scenery is from the centre of my home town. The city councilor or some other entity has decided to install lights above the river. The Autumn here is so beautiful.

Have a lovely November!

  2. Your city looks wonderful at night! I love your costumes! I always wanted to play the real life RPG of Vampire-The Masquerade with a group that really took it seriously!

    1. Is that like live action role-playing but that you do it among the regular folk? :)

  3. You look stunning, Jade. The perfect porcelain-skinned vampyre! Even your glasses don't detract - how is that possible? LOL

    My glasses always tick me off at Hallowe'en - I feel they look ridiculous with whatever costume I'm attempting. I guess I should just go as John Lennon every year and be done with it. :P

    1. Thank you! ^^ The glasses are actually a part of the character I was dressed as. Obviously they are a fashion statement for her, since her other personality does not wear glasses. :D Vampires are odd!

  5. Even without vampire teeth you looked Ventrue (Right? My Vampire RPG times were long ago)!

    1. I too had remembered her as Ventrue but she was actually Malkavian. :D That whole double personality was the cause of it, I imagine.

  6. We had my cousin and her husband over for Halloween and they had those vampire teeth too :) Though they were quite happy with them, my cousin even had trouble getting hers out to eat.
