    This is best done after a weekend, vacation, or school break. If you just have 1 day off, that's perfectly fine too.

    The first thing is the transformation into a vampire is pretty slow to so start acting like a vampire bit by bit. Some things to do are: stop fiddling with stuff, like pencils or hair, don't blink as often (but still blink! Don't ruin your eyes! Blink slowly, blinks at least 5-10 seconds apart), make it look like you are not breathing (but still breath!), and staring at people! Do not be a creep. Only stare for about 6-10 seconds. But stare intensely. When "transforming" pretend to get "major headaches" or "your teeth hurting". This adds to the effect.

    After about a week of "transforming" you are now a Vampire! Congrats! Okay, so now you get into eating. Eat a big breakfast, and do not eat a big lunch. Maybe a salad, or small sandwich. If your school allows it, eat in an area that no one else is eating. If you can't eat a small lunch like stated above.

    Carry a metal thermos with you at all times. Drink what's in the thermos more frequently than you eat. Kind of guard what you are drinking ("blood") and if someone asks what's in it, just say, "Oh, nothing." Also when drinking it, sigh deeply, like you are relieved.

    If someone asks you to sleep over your house, say something like "I can't, I'm busy tomorrow. but I can hang out until before dark." Vampires usually get more active after dark. This is optional, but adds to the effect.

    Don't be too-too social. Have a few close friends, and keep them close. Stick by their side and if danger comes, defend them.

    For music, stick to either classical, Mozart, Beethoven, etc. Or you could go for rock bands like Paramore, Evanescence, Flyleaf, Nightwish, Shinedown, Black Veil Brides, Metallica, etc. Your choice applies.

    NEVER complain about being cold, hot, or tired. Vampires don't get tired! Choose to avoid light. You're going for the modern, I-can-go-out-in-sunlight vampire, not the oldest, I-turn-to-dust-in-sunlight vampire. When in the sun, wear big, dark shades. If it is really sunny, pretend that the sun bothers you a bit and move away. If you are in class and sitting near a window that is sunny, put on a sweatshirt. Don't get too hot though. Try to stay in the shade when outside.

    If a person gets too close to you, scoot away, hold your breath, and clench your fist. Then take a sip out of your thermos. The person will probably question this, just say that you were a little uncomfortable, and thirsty.

    For clothes, this could be anything. Goth, punk, emo, scene, prep, normal, nerdy, dressy: it's up to you!! Wear a bit of natural makeup, and cover up zits, pimples, bruises, cuts, etc. with a concealer or something. Vampires heal quickly!

    If you want, get vampire fangs. NOT the glowy, fake ones you get for 99 cents at the pharmacy. You want real looking ones. Google it!

    Keep a diary telling of your vampire life, of your struggle to keep your secret. If someone finds it, they may believe.


  • Stare at one place for a while, and then when you move, jerk your head in a sudden movement. Vampires are meant to be very quick, remember!
  • If someone asks you what your favorite color is say "crimson red" or just "red."
  • Don't be too anti-social. It will drive people away from you.
  • The thing with the whole "transformation". It's like you were bitten by a vampire or turned into one over the weekend or something.
  • This article doesn't suggest acting like a vampire in front of your parents.
  • Be very graceful.
  • Remember, you are not a vampire! Just pretending!
  • Try to get your friend to pretend to be a vampire hunter for more fun!
  • If somebody asks you out for dinner in the day light, say yes, but go for a date only during the night.
  • Bright red lipstick and black makeup may be more effective but don't overdo it!
  • You shouldn't tell your friends because they might steal the idea. If you want to tell them, make sure they are trustworthy enough to not take it.
  • Only smile when something is funny or when you're around a boy you like. Make the smile a curl to one side for a good effect!


  • People may think you are strange. Ignore them and act like they don't know what they're saying.
  • It says don't blink but please blink or you could ruin your eyes!
  • Even though it says don't breath, always breath, because if not it could be fatal.
