True Blood Halloween Costume Ideas: Vampires, Shapeshifters, Werewolves And More!
True Blood is the hit vampire series based upon the fictional Sookie Stackhouse novels written by Charlain Harris. They are set in Bon Temps Louisiana in an alternate reality where vampires have come out of the coffin and announced their existence to humans. They live and work just like humans do and want equal rights and protection. With so many supernatural characters inhabiting this world, there’s plenty of inspiration for a unique Halloween costume this year!
Although Sookie has worn many outfits on the show, the most distinctive has the be the Merlotte’s white T-shirt, black hot pants, and the classic small apron around the waist. Couple this with the blonde wig – maybe even some vampire bite marks on the neck – and everyone will know you’ve come as Sookie for the night.
Eric Northman is the famous Viking vampire, known for his blonde locks and sarcastic sense of humor. If you’d like to go as Eric then you’ll probably want to get your hands on some tight jeans, a tight shirt, and a leather jacket. This is the classic Fangtasia look (and don’t forget his fangs!)
This is a fun costume for any guy with a sense of humor! Lafayette is never afraid to show his feminine side. He’s usually found wearing a lot of eye makeup, lipstick, jewelery and women’s clothing – often finishing it off with a headscarf. Somehow he manages to pull it off and stay cool in the process. If you go as Lafayette this Halloween, you may want to practice your insults beforehand, too.
Bill doesn’t have quite as distinctive a style as the other vampires – he likes to “mainstream”, meaning he’s as human as he possibly can be. That said, he still has the noticeable pale vampire face, the notorious vampire fangs, and usually carries around a bottle of True Blood with him to avoid him having to drain humans unnecessarily – unless, of course, you are not looking. Bill is known to be hypocritical like that. Since he is the new King of Louisiana vampires you may also want to wear a crown as a gag.
Pam Swynford De Beaufort
Pam’s most notable feature is her long head of hair, so get hold of a blonde wig if you want to dress as this famous female vampire for Halloween this year. Couple this with vampire fangs and tight PVC clothing and you’ll have the ultimate Fangtasia outfit.
Although Sam looks like a regular human, he’s a shapeshifter that can take the form of any animal. In his human form, Sam is most recognizable for his checked shirts, stubbly chin, and wispy hair.
