jaztified 's Thoughts:

Taking inspiration from Count Dracula, I decided to pull together these items for a classic & elegant female version:

A plain black maxiskirt which I wore underneath a black tube pencil-skirt type dress to transform it into a fishtail gown. And for the traditional dracula upturned collar, I made use instead of a black bolero, which I unstitched, and then had its collar turned flat out and up (like a flower’s) to add volume and create some degree of elegant drama. Took a black sash and slipped on a cross pendant for some dry humor. Finished off with a pair of black pumps, some dark eyeshadow and lips, and a clean pulled-back hairstyle.
