A Vampire's Guide to Looking Good

Not being able to see your own reflection can be a serious hurdle when it comes to looking your best. Despite this fact, vampires are notorious for their vanity, and often refuse to leave the house before their hair is combed just so or that makeup delivers the perfect appearance of sallow paleness. Whether you’ve got a date with a fellow bloodsucker or you’re just heading down to the corner to murder the living, here are some tips that’ll have you looking good no matter what the occasion.

Consider the “Bed-Head” Look

Catching all those cowlicks can be pretty difficult without the help of a mirror. Rather than fret about whether or not you’ve got a misplaced hair or two, why not roll with the punches and go with that “just rolled out of bed” look? With the help of a little sculpting gel, all it takes is a few tousles of the hair to look like you just came from an expensive hair salon.

If you’re an old-school vampire and prefer that classic 18th-century look that you grew up with, then other good options for hair include:

  • Using Pommade to achieve that slicked-back style
  • Pulling it back into a ponytail
  • Wearing a hat
  • Investing in a powdered wig

Buy Off the Mannequin

Way back when you were human, you might remember using a full-length mirror to help make sure those fine linen shirts matched your pantaloons. Now that you don’t have that luxury, you’ve probably found yourself playing it safe and dressing in a lot of black. While black is certainly classic, it’s still fun to mix up your cape colors every once in a while. As such, next time you visit the mall, consider doing yourself a favor and buying full outfits straight off the mannequin. If you like the way it looks on the mannequin, chances are you’ll also like the way it looks on you.

Enslave a Personal Stylist

When it comes to looking your best, sometimes it helps to get a second opinion. There are plenty of fashion stylists out there who make a living by helping celebrities and other very important people dress to impress. Since good help is often hard to find, it is recommended you suck the blood of your favorite celebrity stylist. Not only will this ensure an unbiased opinion (since you’re now his or her new vampire master), it will also ensure an eternity of good fashion tips from an expert that is no longer mortal.

Take Good Care of Those Teeth

Those pretty little fangs of yours are one of your greatest assets. To ensure they stay sexy and sharp, be sure to take good care of them. Proper fang maintenance should include:

  • Brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing to get those finicky neck sinews out from in between teeth
  • Dental visits every six months
  • Using a home tooth whitening kit (remember, blood stains)

No Blood Sucking Within 30-Ft. of This Establishment

Vampires, it is against California law to suck the blood of your victims within 30-ft. of this establishment. Please respect the personal space of your fellow patrons and adhere to this law.

dracula4_185x295_bo_463285aFailure to abide to this law may result in a maximum fine of $45. Failure to pay this fine is considered a misdemeanor, and is subject to a sentence of 10 to 20 seconds of sun exposure.

And if you think you can just transform into a bat and fly away into the night before you have a chance to be fined, think again muster. Because we have giant butterfly nets and we know how to use them.

That said, please feel free to prey on any unsuspecting victims that may be careless enough to wander more than 30 feet from this establishment. It is, of course, your ungodly-given right to sink your sharp, piercing teeth into the necks of warm-blooded humans if you so choose (even if most of us consider it a disgusting habit).

For your convenience, we have drawn a chalk line to delineate the 30-foot mark. Additionally, a row of trashcans has been provided so that you may more easily ambush your prey – springing forth from behind them to catch them off guard.

Once you have finished your blood meal, please discard any unused portions of your human in one of trash bins marked “shriveled corpses.”

If you prefer not to drain the entire life force from your human – instead opting to transform him or her into another vampire – please be courteous and inform your new undead brethren of our 30-foot rule. As we say, an informed vampire is a happy vampire.

There will be no leniency in the enforcement of this rule. We apologize, but under no circumstances will we make an exception; not even if you are the great Count Dracula himself.

You have been warned.
