Kids can get in on the vampire act, too! Whether an infant or a teen, we have a costume that will fit. You can be classy or sassy, modern or traditional, creepy or charming!
Kids who love "The Count" from Sesame Street probably don't know this, but the compulsion to count things is an actual characteristic of the vampires of folklore. It's called arithmomania, and it's the reason why one supposed vampire-protection method is to scatter grains of salt, rice, seeds or gravel over a grave or in the vampire's path. The idea is that the vampire will be compelled to stop and count the grains, giving the intended victim time to escape. To make it even more effective, some legends suggest adding a nail or a pin to the grain. This would cause the vampire to prick itself, making it drop the grains it had counted and force it to start over.
There's also such a thing as a "vampire number!" It's a number that has an even number of digits, and those digits can be arranged so that they form numbers with half of the digits (in any order), and those numbers, when multiplied together, equal the original number. An example is: 1260 = 21 x 60. If your child likes number puzzles, this might be a fun thing to research.
Back to the topic at hand. You don't have to be an actual vampire to get in on the theme. We also have bat costumes, so an infant could perhaps be the pet bat of an older vampire sibling. Whichever costume your child chooses, don't forget to add accessories!
