True Blood 'Inspired by Sookie' Set

 

True Blood Online featured a great article on how to have a Fangtastic Halloween and suggested to either “dress up like Sookie or become a vampire with fangs.”  It’s easy to make Sookie’s look your own by “finishing off the look by sporting black short shorts and your favorite sneakers” with the True Blood “Inspired by Sookie” Set.  It’s also easy to capture Jessica Hamby’s look with the same costume and the True Blood Fangs.  Check out the True Blood Halloween Gift Guide for costumes, accessories, party items, and much more.
