Pick a formal black outfit
Pick an elegant black dress or a formal black suit from your closet, or find one in a used clothing store.
Buy plastic vampire fangs and a rubber bat from a costume shop. Make sure the fangs fit comfortably over your upper teeth.
Whiten your face
After dressing, wash your face and then apply white powder with a puff or brush.
Highlight your lips
Highlight your lips by making them very pale with a light dusting of face powder, or very dark with a deep red, purple, or black lipstick.
Do your hair
Slick your hair back with pomade or gel. If it’s long, put it in a ponytail.
Use fake blood
Dribble a drop or two of fake blood from the corners of your lips, and dot two small drops on your neck, spaced to look like fang puncture wounds.
Don your cape
Don your cape with a flourish, and start practicing replacing your Ws with Vs.
