Edward Cullen is a hot costume, especially with all the Bella Swans out there in need of handsome dates. Here are some tips for a quick and easy Edward Cullen Costume.
Like all vampires, Edward is pale. White makeup can look too thick, so instead try using a white powder to dull the color of your skin.
Edward and the other vampires in the Twilight universe have a glittering tone to their skin when exposed to light. You should go for a shimmer instead of trying to apply glitter all over your face. A powdered glitter will work well, but you may have better luck with a silvery or white eye shadow applied with a large, soft brush.
Edward has a messy crop of poofy hair that reminds me of James Dean in the 50's. Put a little bit of stiff styling wax or gel onto your fingers. Rub your fingers together briefly to distribute the product. Hang your head upside-down and work the gel into the hair at your forehead from root to tip, sliding your fingers through the hair.
Flip your head right-side up an smooth the hair back gently with your hands. Hold up the front of the hair with a comb and add hairspray if you need more sticking power. Comb back the ends of the bangs to the side, leaving a poof in front. Brush the sides and back of your hair to lay flat.
While not integral to the costume, you can add fangs to if you want to give Edward a more dangerous feel. I suggest custom fitting fang tooth caps. Just remember that fangs will give you that not-so-sexy vampire lisp.
Wear a plain t-shirt or button-up in gray or light blue. A dark wool jacket or hoodie can be worn over it. Wear the shirt un-tucked over dark denim jeans with sneakers. The overall idea is to wear a set of simple, modern clothes. Wrinkles and dirt are not an option, the Cullen family is quite tidy.
When the Twilight vampires are hungry, their eyes change to black. For a hungry vampire, I suggest a costume contact that will cover your entire iris in black, like the BlackOut lens by Wild Eyez (see lenses). A full 'vegetarian' vampire (like the Cullen family) has a set of striking amber eyes like FreshLook Colorblends in Honey (see lenses), while human-feeding vampires have bright red eyes like Wild Eyes lenses in Red Hot (see lenses).
The Attitude Edward is indifferent to most humans, and prone to brooding. Put on your best emo face and stare off into space sometimes, whispering 'Bella' to the winds.More Hot Costumes for 2010]
