Pardon my ignorance, but I was not aware that there were people who called themselves vampires. Even being A Person Who Is On The Internet All The Time, this had eluded me. But alas, Movies.com has found the “Twilight” interview to end all “Twilight” interviews: a man named John Reason who lives in East Texas and claims he realized at age 14 that he is a vampire. John rides a motorcycle, wears cowboy boots, and was married for seven years … which all sounds pretty normal until you get to the part where he runs a site called RealVampireNews.com.
After the jump, here are some of the oddest tidbits from John Reason’s interview with Movies.com. Keep reading »
“It was definitely the Emily thing that set it off. When she came clean, it pulled on my heartstrings. I felt like I was competing for something I wasn’t necessarily sure I needed. You feel less deserving. They all have these stories and heartache and they need this love … Fighting other girls for a guy has never been my style. But had I stepped out of the limo and knew he was going to be my husband, I would have been in a stronger fight for him. But at the end of the day, did I see myself being his Texas housewife? Not sure. Could we have worked? Maybe. Probably not. He said he’d have a hard time bringing me home to his grandmother … I have always been into the darker side of things and love the mystery and sexiness of vampires. I became friends with the leader of the underground vampire world. He had a fangsmith so I had a pair made. I wore them for Halloween once and had such a blast that I brought them out on numerous occasions afterwards. It has become kind of my signature thing.”
– Madison Garton (aka Fang Girl) talking about her sudden and unexpected departure from “The Bachelor” last week. I was personally sad to see Fang Girl go. She was one of my favorite contestants ever. You can’t blame her for leaving. She is way too edgy for boring Brad Womack. But the interesting part of this is that she runs with the leader of the underground vampire world and visits a fangsmith. Tell me more about that, Fang Girl. [People] Keep reading »
OK, the vampire craze has officially gone too far. The original obsession over Edward and Jacob was understandable, “True Blood” still makes us swoon, and it was even OK when “The Vampire Diaries” hit TV. But now, thanks to the newest trend in plastic surgery, vampires officially need to go away. Doctors are offering a new facelift treatment thanks to a cosmetic filler called Selphyl. Sure, nothing new there, as women (and men) looking to appear younger will always resort to cosmetic enhancements, but this is special. Selphyl has been nicknamed the “vampire facelift” because the main ingredient is actually your own blood. Ew. It’s being touted as a more natural option because the ingredients are in fact a part of your own body already, but this is clearly not a procedure for the weak. You’ll not only need to undergo needles for the Selphyl filler, but the doctor will have to withdraw your own blood before the procedure takes place. Isn’t this just like injecting yourself with … yourself? Who wants to pay for that? [ABC] Keep reading »
Further proof some men don’t know jack about women: Esquire magazine says chicks go bananas for vampire love stories because we lust after … wait for it … gay guys. Gay guys don’t want to be with us the way vampires can’t be with us and you know us ladies: we just want what we cannot have.
No, I’m not buying it either. Keep reading »
It’s Halloween in July, apparently. “Horror Girl” is a new, mostly black, mostly lacy collection at Topshop, the U.K. (and now U.S.) clothing store. They’ve got a white vest with “Be Afraid” across the front, a blazer with the words “Vampire Kiss” written in blood-red on the inside lining, and burgundy, five-inch studded platform heels fit for a hooker’s rise from the dead. If only their quasi-goth looks were apropos of the “Twilight: New Moon” release, like at Nordstrom, but the flick’s not out until November. Maybe Topshop’s simply trying to steal customers from Hot Topic? [Topshop Horror Girl Collection] Keep reading »
Angelina Jolie may have started the whole blood-wearing trend with that infamous vial of Billy Bob’s bodily fluids she used to wear back in the day, but thanks to society’s newfound obsession with all things vampire, the trend is now more mainstream, not to mention popular, than ever. People are literally ravenous (ha) for it: Etsy seller VonErickson’s $4 blood choker just got picked up on Buzzfeed. A few hours later, it was sold out, but a $16 version is now available. (How convenient!) And people (like us) have already been buzzing about DuWop’s much-anticipated bloody version of Lip Venom, $16, so the company is offering a sneak preview to US Weekly Readers. Here’s how hot it is: The website currently says, “Due to the extraordinary response to this product we are experiencing shipping delays.” Are you feeling it, too? After the jump, it’s blood chic!
