Top 10 True Blood Season 6 Halloween Costume Ideas
October 29, 2013 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
Want a Last Minute Costume Idea? Try These:
While Lilith (Jessica Clark) wore a lot more in Season 6 than in Season 5 of HBO’s True Blood, there were still a few moments when she stripped off, got bloody and bared her fangs. While we are not suggesting you go completely nude for this costume, why not try dying a white or flesh coloured cat suit or tank top and leggings? A great group costume as well considering Lilith’s minions also arrived to collect Bill (Stephen Moyer) in this outfit.
2. Sarah Newlin in Her Bloody White Suit
Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) in general had some fantastic outfits in Season 6. Her red dress and big hair when she reunited with Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) and her scarf print dress were two that stood out as Halloween costume worthy. But, by far, her most memorable outfit was that white pant suit she wore when she killed Ms. Suzuki (Tamlyn Tomita) with the Tru Blood spokeswoman’s own shoe!
3. Niall Brigant
Niall (Rutger Hauer) was absent for a great deal of Season 6 since Warlow/Ben (Robert Kazinsky) sent him to another dimension. However, his very first appearance was certainly noteworthy costume-wise.
4. Be a Vamp Camp Vamper
This is probably the quickest costume to pull out at the last minute. Don some scrubs, iron on a number, stick in some fangs and voila! you’re a vampire who’s been sent to Vamp Camp. There is a little scope to enhance this costume however. Daring True Blood fans could go as the bra flashing sun walking vampers. Or, if you have a blue magic marker lying around and an excess of fake blood, why not go as a vampire who’s consumed some tainted Tru Blood?
5. Willa in Her Bloody Nightdress
This is Option #1 for what to do with your gran’s old night dress. Willa (Amelia Rose Blair) spends a great deal of time in this outfit since Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) kidnaps her to use as a blackmailing pawn against her father Governor Burrell (Arliss Howard). If you want to keep gran’s nightie pristine, you can wear it by itself and try to track down a tall Viking to kidnap you on the evening, or you can splatter it with blood and add some fangs for the baby vampire look.
6. Nora as She’s Dying
This is Option #2 for your gran’s old nightdress. You need to be a little more creative with this costume though as Nora was force fed tainted Tru Blood. Pull out your make up kit and use blue eye liner to draw wicked blue veins up your arms to complete the dying Nora look.
7. Eric Northman as a Conservationist
Raid your dad’s wardrobe for the dorkiest suit you can find. Slick your hair forward, find a pair of steel rimmed glasses and an edition of ‘Family Activities‘. Then learn everything you can about the whooping crane.
8. Lafayette (in Anything, Because He is Completely Gorgeous!)
This Halloween costume is for your more adventurous male. Anything Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) wears is simply fabulous, so there is a lot of scope with this costume. Think neon, leopard print and plenty of eye make up. The suit he wore for Terry Bellefleur’s (Todd Lowe) funeral is probably his most conservative look, but add some eye liner and fake eyelashes and you are really to roll girlfriend!
9 Like The Walking Dead and True Blood, But Can’t Decide Between the Two? Why Not Go as a Rabid, V Infected Vampire?
We touched on this idea back at #4. However, if you watch the True Blood Season 6 finale, there is one scene at the very end where a horde of Tru Blood affected vampires turn up at Bellefleur’s (previously Merlotte’s). Find some jeans or anything that you don’t mind messing up. Add a whole lot of fake blood, especially around your mouth and down the front of your chest. Add some blue veins and pretend to be crazy.
10. Merlotte’s Waitress
Grab a Merlotte’s T shirt from the HBO store, don a pair of little black shorts and you are ready to roll as a Merlotte’s waitress!
