I was thinking about how to describe what what the people in the editorials I choose to post are usually doing. A word came to mind: vamping. It has numerous definitions according to urban dictionary, some of them obscene, others related to police brutality, still others related to music, but here are some of my favorites:
To stall for time with flourish.
Are you vamping for time?
To stay up all night, like a vampire would because once the sun comes up they turn to dust.
Fuck sleeping, lets go vamping!
To get ready for a night out using heavy make-up for a stunning effect.
She's vamping it up tonight!
I also made a collage for this editorial. I noticed the vampire was not wearing much jewelry while vamping (vampires love jewelry) so I decided to go all out with Alexander McQueen. Go to the link to see what all the stuff actually is. Also, the movie Kiss of the Damned goes really well with this theme (and has some very fashionable vampires). This editorial reminds me of it.
