Since this is a last gasp at having a True Blood Halloween while the show airs, we thought it would be fun to find some ways to celebrate the holiday in a True Blood way. Below are some great ideas to help you celebrate Halloween in True Blood Style. Check out the ways we have found to “darken up” your Halloween fun below:
Dress up like Sookie Stackhouse or become a vampire with fangs
For Sookie Stackhouse, everyday feels like Halloween, so why not dress up like her for Halloween
What better way to show you’re ready to take on whatever fiends may find their way into your home on Halloween than to dress up as everyone’s favorite Southern Belle? HBO Global Licensing makes getting Sookie’s iconic Merlotte’s uniform easy with the True Blood “Inspired by Sookie” Set. Retailing for $39.99, the shirt and apron are just like the ones worn by Sookie and the other waitresses of Merlotte’s. Finish off the look by sporting black short shorts and your favorite sneakers. As for hair and makeup, keep it simple. Rock a high pony and let your natural beauty shine trough. A “just bitten” drawn-on vampire bite mark is optional. You can also capture Jessica Hamby’s look by using the same costume and adding the True Blood Fangs.

Painted Blood Vampire pumpkins from swelldesigner.blogspot.com:
“Bloody Vampire Painted Pumpkins is not for the faint of heart. Har har. It’s for those who like to live a little more on the dark side. I originally had the drip idea, but I thought fang marks would also make for a nice, spooky pumpkin (I was inspired by Twilight, but True Blood and Dexter fans might appreciate this one as well). One could also create a cool pumpkin by spattering on the paint with a toothbrush for a Dexter-like blood spray effect. The more blood the better, eh?
What you need:
- White pumpkins
- Tulip 3-D Fashion Paint in Bright Red
- cleaning wipes
- construction nail
What you do:
- Use cleaning wipe or paper towel to clean off pumpkin and remove any dirt/debris.
- For drip pumpkin, squeeze 3-D Fashion Paint along the pumpkin ridges. Make some drips longer than other for a more random look. Also paint along stem. At bottoms of drips, squeeze a little more paint to look like the blood has coagulated.
- For fang marks pumpkin, use construction nail to dig 2 small holes into pumpkin about an inch and a half apart. Place tip of 3-D paint into hold you dug out and gently squeeze. Draw a line down from hole and create a bead of paint at end to suggest coagulation.
These are just a few ideas. You can find more at the site links listed above. What are you doing to decorate for Halloween this year?
