Candice Swanepoel proves all you need to be a sexy vampire is a bold red lip, a drop of fake blood and killer fangs.

KimKardashian-PoisonIvy

diy-blurred-lines-halloween-costume-you-know-you-want.w654

If you’ want some attention the Halloween, you’ll love this costume via the Blurred Lines video. All you need is some skimpy nude colored clothing and high self-esteem, as you will be wearing pretty much nothing else.
