"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

So I'm participating in a Secret Satan Exchange this year - it's a Secret Santa for Horror Lovers and I am looking for inspiration for some possible DIY depending on who I get and what they like. (Don't worry I'm also participating in a regular Secret Santa exchange as well- I'm not all dark and demented, just a little bit LOL) Check out the very scary things I came across.
Speaking of scary Christmas....who is going to see Krampus??
