Vampires and Accessories
We all know a few things about vampires. They’re dark. They’re sexy. They’re wicked and they crave blood. They avoid the sunlight. But did you know that they’re also happen to be the most well-accessorized paranormal creatures?
It’s true. Look at the competition. Werewolves? No thanks – all that jewelry just gets caught in your chest hair (um). Demons? Other than a dashing set of horns and a tail, there’s not a lot of accessorizing going on. But vampires? Vampires are stylin’.
Allow me to provide a few examples.
Vampires with Sunglasses - What’s the best thing to protect sensitive eyes from the life-draining sun? A classy pair of shades, of course. Lots of vampires have been sporting eye-wear in books recently, and as an accessory, it just makes sense. What vampire wants to stay home during the daylight hours anyhow?
Wings – Welllllll…maybe this is a trend I’m trying to start. ;) But my vampires have something a little different than most…black wings. Originally angels that fell, my vampires made a dark deal to keep their wings, and those wings influence everything they do (including fashion choices, of course). And nothing makes a man sexier than a big pair of dark, dangerous wings on his back, right? ;)
Of course, wings aren’t the only accessories that show up in MY FAIR SUCCUBI. My heroine, Jackie, has trouble with necklaces. She has a gris-gris to protect her, and her friend Remy has an enchanted diamond to protect herself…but sometimes a magic charm can cause more trouble than it prevents…and those are not the only accessories they’re on the lookout for.
