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!

Silver bullets are an inaccuracy and were fabricated recently for vampires based off of werewolves. They hate fire and they can be killed by beheading and being set aflame. Cults exist but many are fanatical fans or have psychological problems. Over all they are cool and I like the idea. P.S. Vamp lovers read Twilight by S. Meyer

does anybody really care wether they are real or not i mean come on i like them belive in them my friends dont big deal i mean all idiots listen up. Vampires whether you think they are or arent real they are. I know for a fact because we have created them and as long as we have created them they exist second of all not all vampires are evil if they wanted to they could be good. i mean what is the difference if they are good or evil we created them and we must alter that we each have our own vampire that we created as children mine is good my friends is evil. We alter that we must accept that this is our choice. three who is to say they do or dont appear in mirrots or have shadows mine did. my friends didnt it is all in your perspective of vampires like mine ate garlic with me my friends ran from garlic but though they exsist it is only in a way so weak that they could not possibly do anything that way is callled our imaginations so that is a bit of insight on true vampires thanx

Vampires don't exist. Even though I am interested in them, everyone knows they are not real. They are just creatures your brothers and sisters make up to scare you.

No offence or anything, but to all those people who have said that they are vampires - what are you all on?

Fair enough, I will concede that vampires are a good theory, and we've had some great literary works on the subject, but I just can't understand why people seem to think they're vampires. It's just not right!
