How to make a Lafayette (True Blood) costume
If you’re a fan of HBO’s vampire drama, “True Blood,” it’s impossible not to love Lafayette. He’s the openly gay, blood-dealing short-order cook at Merlotte’s. As Tara’s cousin, he’s a loyal friend to her and to Sookie Stackhouse, often providing a shoulder to cry on. Even under the most dire circumstances, Lafayette is a force to be reckoned with and still looks fierce! Check out how to make your own Lafayette costume:
##Things you’ll need##
* Tank top
* Nail polish
* Dark purple lipstick
* Cargo pants
* Vial of blood
##Putting together your Lafayette (True Blood) costume##
Step 1: Put on a stylish ‘do rag over your head. You may or may not want to top it off with a gaudy Trucker cap in a bright color.
Step 2: Line your eyes with black eyeliner, rimming the inner and outer corners of the inside of your lids.
Step 3: Pull on a tank top with straps. You may want a thinner, more spaghetti-strap style, or a men’s style with thinner straps than the traditional tank top.
Step 4: Add some bling necklaces around your neck. Lafayette loves to call attention to his wardrobe!
Step 5: Put on a pair of baggy cargo pants. If you’re feeling really daring, put on a long skirt or tunic over the top of them like Lafayette wore once or twice.
Step 6: Put on a cook’s apron you can wear it around your neck or tie it around your waist like a skirt.
Step 7: Paint your nails a bright color like turquoise.
Step 8: Use some fun props to spice up your look, like a vial of blood, perfect for peddling to the townsfolk of Bon Temps.
Step 9: Slick on some purple lipstick and serve that food with a smile… And those customers better smile back… Or else!
