The only way to become a vampire is to be bitten by one. Take your costume to the next level, by creating realistic vampire bite holes in your neck. These holes look scary and shocking. They add depth to full costumes -- but can also work as a subtle costume on their own -- when worn with an everyday outfit. Though they may seem daunting to create, vampire bite marks are fairly easy to do.
Things You'll Need
- Spirit gum
- Petroleum jelly or cold cream
- Derma wax
- Liquid latex
- Skin colored makeup
- Purple and blue makeup
- Fake blood
Making the Holes
Apply a thin layer of spirit gum to the area of your neck that the vampire bit you. Let the spirit gum dry for a few seconds, so it becomes tacky and sticky.
Rub a small amount of petroleum jelly, or cold creme on your fingertips. Gather two small scoops of Derma Wax with your greased fingertips. Roll them into balls the size of pencil erasers.
Stick each Derma Wax ball on the spirit gummed area of your neck -- an inch and a half apart.
Blend the edges of each wax ball into your skin. The balls should look like two small welts emerging from the skin.
Push the back of a pen into each welt, to create the hole where the vampire's tooth entered. Use the pen to shape the hole to the desired look.
Brush a thin coat of liquid latex over the vampire bites, to seal the wax.
Painting the Holes
Dab skin-colored makeup on, and around the bite marks, to blend them into your skin.
Dab purple and blue makeup lightly around the bites, to create the illusion of bruised skin.
Drip fake blood in the puncture holes. Allow the blood to drip out of the bites and down your neck.
