Keep Calm and Drink Blood

True Blood

"Vhat do you vant to be for Halloween?" All your friends keep asking you the same bloody question, and it's starting to be a real pain in the neck!

You started pondering at Twilight and have been thinking From Dusk Until Dawn and still don't know what to wear. So you call your friend Buffy to Interview her for ideas, but she had The Hunger and pulled out her Blade to chop up some True Blood sausage. Now it's getting sunny and you hate Ultraviolet light, so you duck into the Underworld to get into the Near Dark.  But the door is locked!  "Let Me In!" you cry, "Let the Right One In!" but you realize that Only Lovers will be Left Alive and you've developed a powerful Thirst and you still need to figure out your costume! It's a real Strain, Being Human, and you really don't want to look like The Lost Boys on Halloween!

Wait, but of course! You can be a Vampire! (The best answers are usually right in front of our faces, aren't they?)

We don't want you to bite off more than you can chew, so here's a great Vampire costume that needs only the Dare to Wear Renaissance Dress in Belladonna, a set of bloody fangs, and a red choker necklace.

Our friend Emily Lambert shows how you can also create a fun Vampire costume out of the Dare to Wear Electra top in Garnet, Harmony leggings in Black and a few other accessories.

So there's your silver bullet to have an easy, fun Vampire costume! In it, you can live forever if you have a Bloody Mary and stay away from the garlic and the wooden stakes.

And when you put the "Vamp" in Vampire, don't forget to take pictures for our Dare Fashion Halloween Costume Photo Contest! You could win a $500 Shopping Spree! It would be a bloody shame if you didn't enter!

Dear Dare,
Every year, my sweetie buys me stuff for Valentine's Day that I don't REALLY want or need. I don't really need any more stuffed animals - I'm not 12! And even though I LOVE chocolate, do I really NEED any more chocolate? OK, yeah, everyone needs more chocolate! But still, what I really want (and need!) is some new outfits 'cause fashion is my passion...

Size Guide

Relax. Don't worry. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked.  It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!

Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups,  and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.

And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
