Vampire Doll

Are you fascinated by the undead? Perhaps you enjoy the little tingles on the back of your neck or the goose bumps that show up telling you not all is as it appears. Are you on the lookout for something supernatural, and fascinated by creepy tales? If so, I’m sure you love the royal family of horror - vampires.

Vampires are truly evil. They feast on human blood and enjoy turning victims into new vampires. Some recent books and movies have taken a new twist on the old principle, but even those few “good” vampires are heavily outweighed by their bad kinsmen. If you want to be prepared, there are certain things you need to know. Here are the most common characteristics of vampires:

Perfectly normal

– While we all love to wear the pointy teeth at Halloween, original vampires were often the picture of health and normalcy. They look even healthier than you and me, but at night might come for your blood.

Elongated teeth

– While some myths make vampires healthy looking, others have them deathly pale with elongated canines. Check your boyfriend’s teeth carefully before any make out sessions – not that you should be doing any necking anyway!

Missing Shadow

– Many myths claim that vampires don’t cast a shadow. Some say this is because they have no soul, and others claim it is because they are dead already. Who cares? It’s just plain creepy!

No Reflection

– If you pass by a mirror with a friend and only you show up, you’re in trouble. Vampires don’t usually show up in mirrors, and again this is believed to be because vampires have no soul.

Shape Shifter

– Vampires can change shape, and not just into bats like in the movies. Folklore tells that vampires can become any number of creatures including spiders and wolves – maybe even your adorably little kitten.

If you are suddenly seeing vampires all around, have no fear. There are plenty of ways to protect yourself – and not all involve silver bullets!

Garlic

– Garlic is the equivalent of mosquito repellent, only it has nothing to do with mosquitoes. Put some in your pocket or make a necklace if you want to repel vampires, but beware! Your new perfume might repel your friends, too.

Wooden Stakes

- There are only a few ways to kill a vampire, and this is the messiest. Wooden stakes through the heart will take out anyone really, not just a vampire.

Sunlight

– The easiest way to hurt or kill a vampire is to hit it with sunlight. As vampires are night creatures, some folktales claim sunlight is their natural enemy and they will perish if caught in the rays.

Vampire Doll

Silver Bullets

– If you have any on hand, silver bullets will also do the trick. Of course, anyone shot with a bullet through the heart, silver or otherwise, is probably not going to live to tell the tale.

Naturally, all of this vampire talk is really just for fun. Real-life vampire tales pop up all over the globe from time to time, but they have all been proven false. So, until a real vampire is spotted, you can have fun creating them here at the Doll Palace. Try a pale face and red lips, or maybe some scary fangs. Make her creepy or friendly, but just remember…nobody is truly safe!

I believe in vampires. Not saying it's true, but Ithink they're real. I loved vampires ever since i was little. They always amazed me in every way. Infact, vampires are what stared me to like scary things and scary movies. I agree that it would be cool to be avampire for a disguise. it would be a lot of fun. Vampires are freakin awesome!

I suggest that you read a book entitled "Twilight". It is a "fiction" book however all the facts in it are correct. As well, its very intresting. Also, if you want to research the topic of vampires, most of the "facts" on websites are not true. If you have any questions about vampires, feel free to comment me. I have been reading about vampires for a while and I know quite a bit on the subject. Dont hesitate to ask me anything on the subject. Alsom if you go to the last page of comments, I wrote a bit on info on vamps there.

i like vampires and would love to meet 1 and become friends with them, not all mythes are true though, (check out the Darren Shan books) they are all about vampires and are totaly cool! they are also sad creatures of the night as they have human friends also. they can live up to 700years old (yes they can die of age too). they are sad as they leave every1 behind (human friends die faster and so they get lonly) ((BDW can u make a halloween dollmaker for standard users pls?))

I'm not really sure if vamps are real. I mean, their are people that think they are, and there are cults, but I don't know. But you can't kill a vamp with silver bullets. That's werewolves. I do believe Dracula was real. And he was actually. Not like the dracula they made up in the movies though.
