My latest Useless Factoid

My latest fashion discovery:  Dracula’s cape was originally added for the early stage production, to hide the actor as he “disappeared” on stage via trap door. I always assumed it was just to look like a bat.  The tuxedo was just to look classy.

So, should you find yourself in fictional vampire-infested version of Transylvania (or, you know, Ustalav) and thinking about how to fake turning into a bat, here are some suggestions:

Also, if you’re into hypothetical-situation-fashion (and who isn’t?) you should be reading What to Wear When.  They are a style blog that puts together looks for important, yet often overlooked, situations. They provided not one, but two looks for Evil Queens, one for lizard people about to take over the world, and many others.
