Homemade Undead Vampire Lucy Costume from Bram Stoker's Dracula

Halloween is my holiday. Every year I rack my brain to think of something to trump previous year’s costumes. This year I just happened to be watching Bram Stocker’s Dracula and remembered how much I loved Lucy’s Bride dress. Especially the head piece. And then it hit me like a lightening bolt! I quickly grabbed a piece of paper and started drawing out the costume in details.

The base of the Homemade Undead Vampire Lucy Costume from Bram Stoker's Dracula is a white wedding gown. I used a strapless bustled white dress I already had and stitched white appliques over the existing purple embroidery to cover it. Over the dress is an altar style apron/robe. I made it using an embroidered white taffeta and a Simplicity sew-easy pattern. The back is floor length white organza with pin tuck pleats and the same embroidered taffeta used along the hem as trim. The leg o’ mutton sleeves are organza lace with fitted zipper closure gauntlets made of the embroidered taffeta.

Using the same embroidered organza trim, I cut out teardrop shaped pieces then stitched them all together to create the separate collar. Each seam is stitched with a plastic bone to give it stability, and a full length zipper in the back. Over the cotton neckline are a couple of ruffled lace appliques. The headpiece is a bridal buckram headband with satin pleated over the surface, and lace appliques stitched along the front. The “wings” of the headpiece are pieces of organza stitched together to create a casing for plastic boning, and then cut into “petals”. There are three organza casings total that are stitched directly onto the buckram headband.

To cover up the boning on the headband I stitched on white fake flower petals with pearls in the center.

I decided to dress up as Gary Oldman in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I grabbed my mother’s clothes (a white robe and a red kimono), I had a long Rapunsel wig and had dry ice material shaped like cones to do the top hair.

Then I had flour in my face and covered in white paint and voila I had a Homemade Bram Stoker's Dracula Costume! Oh, I forgot my mom’s long acrylic fingernails and my first communion golden cup to drink Bloody Mary’s all night long!
