"Dexter" is a Showtime TV show about Dexter Morgan, a serial killer who works for the Miami-Dade Police Department. At a young age he witnessed his mother's murder, and after that developed a blood lust. His adoptive father taught him to kill only those who deserve it. If you are planning to dress up as Dexter for Halloween or for a costume party, you can use items you probably have around the house to create either his "kill" outfit or his everyday look.
