"An ambiguously coded figure, a source of both erotic anxiety and corrupt desire, the literary vampire is one of the most powerful archetypes bequeathed to us from the imagination of the nineteenth century." ~ page 2 introduction to Blood Read: The Vampire as Metaphor in Contemporary Culture
Intellectual Vampire Quote
"If the vampire is an other, he or she was always a figure in whom one could find one's self...the despicable as well as the defiant, the shameful as well as the unashamed, the loathing of oddness as well as pride in it." ~ Richard Dyer

Authors Who Donated to the 2010 Flint Vampire Ball
You'll be the slickest and sexiest girl in Dodge City when you wear this stunning Adult Saloon Girl Plus Costume. The days of the Wild Wild West will return when you don this working girl outfit that consists of a lovely sash for your head, a dark skirt, a vest, and a shirt complete a sassy number that is sure to steer the men your way before the next cattle drive. The salon girl outfit fits plus sizes only from 18 to 22. You can add to the charm and sex appeal of this fantastic outfit with Back Queen Size Seamed Fishnet Pantyhose or Plus Size Red Patty Panties for Adults, either is an excellent choice for this outfit. Adult Black Patent Mary Jane Shoes make for a great crowning touch on an outfit you'll enjoy at costume parties and Halloween blow-outs throughout the year.
So I'm already on the hunt for costumes- yes I know it's only May but I need a costume for the Authors After Dark Ball in August. I'm not sure what I'm going to wear.
I found this Saloon girl costume and it's very sexy and fun.
I love how flirty it is. It showcases my assets perfectly ;-) and it's my favorite color combination...red and black. The only thing I don't like is the corset style vest thing-it's not tight enough or corsety enough but I can slip a real corset under it to tighten things up for the perfect look.
I'm thinking the costume might work for New Orleans, especially if I steampunk it up a little bit.
Maybe. I don't know. I think I want something more Victorian for AAD
However this costume won't go to waste, not with all the Halloween events and parties I'll be going to this year.
I'm still putting together Flint Fang Fest which is full of Halloween vampire and paranormal events, I could probably wear it to one of those.
Maybe hubby and I can go as a Vampire Cowboy and a Vampire Saloon Girl :-)
Now I guess I have to go searching for a Cowboy costume for him- he has a hat and boots, we just need a few accessories. I'm sure Wholesale Costume Club has some things we can use.
If you're looking for fun costumes I highly suggest The Wholesale Costume Club, this Saloon Girl costume sells for only $33.96.
And they have everything: children's costumes, men's costumes, women's costumes and plus size costumes.
