Show Off Gothic Vampire Costumes

Gothic vampire costumes are a bloody fun way to dress any time of the year. Aside from being some of the most authentic vampire costumes, Gothic vampire costumes are also extremely popular.

Building on fashions from the Victorian and Elizabethan eras, Gothic vampire costumes often include lace, velvet, long skirts and coats, and fishnets, and silver jewelry. Fashions from the late Victorian era are popular in realistic vampire costumes because that is the time period when the vampire hysteria was reaching an all-time high. Gothic vampire costumes also tend to use elements of bondage and dominance, often characterized through chokers, black garments, black hair, and erotic dress.
