And now for something a little different - and totally fabulous - please check out this post by writer/blogger/friend/all-around cool gal Laird Sapir. She's also a closet DJ, and she put together this post with a set list for music with which to attract the undead...
These days, everyone seems to want a little Vampire love. Trouble is, unless you are a part-fairy psychic waitress or a Petrova Doppelganger, it can be hard to know just how to land your own piece of blood-sucking arm candy.
Well, I'm here to help, with a step-by-step guide to snagging a vamp - and you won't even have to make a trip to Fangtasia.
Step 1: Go on a cleansing diet. Whether you want to attract the attention of a modern preternatural hottie like Damon Salvatore or reel in an old-school hunk of cold-blooded love like Lestat or Bill Compton, best to steer clear of vervain, garlic, and laudanum.
Step 2: Treat yourself to a makeover. Since most Vamps were born before your great grandmother learned how to walk, attract them by adding some old-school style to your wardrobe. Looking for a second glance from Eric Northman? Try some Viking braids or a horned helmet. Be creative, but remember: avoid accessorizing with silver or wood.
Step 3: This is critical. Just as music is capable of taming the savage beast, it is also the perfect tool for luring a Vampire out of his lair. Find your town's equivalent of Merlotte's or Mystic Fall's town square, and break out your boombox. Yes, I said it, Boombox. If you don't have one, start prowling ebay. Vampires are not going to be wooed by your ipod. Trust me.
Step 4: Blast some Vampire-lovin' tunes. I've compiled a list of suggested songs to get you started.
Good Luck and Happy Hunting!
