Hollywood Halloween How-To: Bella Swan

Bella Swan, the lovely teen-turned-vampire in the Twilight Series, is an easy, elegant and recognizable character costume. Thanks to the movie Breaking Dawn that came out recently and the soon-to-be-released Breaking Dawn Part 2, many girls are eager to duplicate Bella's style!

Actress Kristen Stewart has a fabulous signature style all her own, and thanks to the styling talents of the Twilight series crew, her looks on-screen as she portrays Bella Swan are beautiful and varied.

You'll be seeing more of Bella the Vampire soon when Breaking Dawn 2 premieres, but in the meantime, you can dress like her for Halloween!

It's hard to adopt Bella's signature look in a recognizable way since her fashion choices are so understated. That's why it's so important to get her vampire look just right. Fortunately, Breaking Dawn part 2 is coming soon -- 11/16/12, to be exact -- so we can see more of Bella at her vampire best!

Light colored foundation is an important base to make skin as light and translucent as possible. Red lips are a must. If you can pick up a pair of red contacts and they don't bother your eyes, go for it, but this may be one area where you'll have to forego realism... Paint red highlights into your hair using a spray-on red hairspray, and spray it back, away from your face. Bella's signature clothes are either a faded brown leather jacket, a form-fitting button down shirt, a flannel shirt or a southwest look. Paired with vampire makeup, and maybe some glitter on your skin if it's daylight or fangs if your version of Bella is riled up, you can get the look!

Bella's Prom Dress

When you're as confident and laid back as Bella Swan, you can pull off anything at Prom -- even a boot cast!

Bella's blue prom dress is simple and beautiful -- and it looks comfortable, too. Never one to show off, Bella dresses down her halter-style dress with an embellished cardigan, charcoal-gray leggings and signature Converse tennis shoes. A walking cast or boot will definitely help people guess who you are ! A decent replica of the dress is available at costume stores like, but a visit to a local thrift or vintage store could turn up a pretty cobalt blue silky dress in a similar pattern. Bella's long hair is a half updo, pinned back and curled into ringlets using a 1" curling iron.

Wedding Day Bella

It's easy to replicate Bella's wedding ensemble. While designer Carolina Herrera created the actual wedding dress in the film, a thrift store wedding dress or  costume and some fake wedding accessories (don't forget the engagement ring) pair well with bella's beautifully twisted messy updo and a gauze veil held in with a bejeweled hair comb. Your hair needs to be long enough to fit into a bun and thick enough to pull into two ponytails stacked one on top of the other. Or, pick up a long wig and create this do directly on the wig! For shoes, Bella wears silk pumps embellished with crystals. You can find inexpensive dyeable pumps at mall stores like Payless and embellish them with crystals or bling from accessories stores like The Icing.

Have your say

What Do You Think Of Vampires?

  • I love vampires! They're so mysterious.
  • They're kinda cool, but a little weird.
  • They're silly. No one really wants to be one.
  • Ew! Gross! Vampires suck!

Sorry for the late reply, but I'd love to help. If they don't want to talk to you, or don't like your jokes, don't talk to them. They probably don't like you, so you shouldn't try to make it better. You should hang out with your other friends. They'll make you feel better about yourself. If you don't have any friends in your class...that's the problem.  That's exactly what happened to me last year. But I started hanging out with the guys more, and they were really nice and had a lot in common with me. Maybe the guys will be nice to you and accept you. I hope I helped you. :)

Aw, that's sad. I know this is a late review, but I would love to help you make new friends. There are kids that do nasty things at every single school, trust me, you'll never find a perfect school, and if people are reporting this form of bullying, teachers are probably supervising children more, so don't worry about that. :) Now making new friends, ahh, that's very difficult. I can be shy myself, but it honestly depends. What I usually do is observe different groups of people, and see how they interact with each other. If the person seems nice, wait until the time is appropriate and greet them. A friendly "Hi, I'm new, could you maybe show me around, or help me with this, or tell me about this school?" That will start off a conversation. :)  As well, I tend to make jokes, or go to my funny side. I usually make way more friends that way. You could try to make slight jokes, and gradually make them less implied and more clear as you joke around.  If there are any other new kids, or shy kids, definitely talk to them. If there are any kids that look lonely, or sad, maybe take some time to approach them. If they look like the want to be left alone, leave them alone. If you're not sure, it's best if you see someone else interact with them first.  If you're bisexual, that doesn't really matter, and don't bring that fact up in a conversation. That's kind of personal, and when you get a little closer, you can say that. It's not really important, and necessary for people to know that. And it's personal too. So don't bring that up unless you really want to.  I hope i helped you! Sorry for the late advice. >_<

Several people are having the same problem as you. Whether they're the same gender or not, many people crush on some of their closest friends. So don't feel alone, remember that. I know this is some late advice, but I hope so far things are going good. Many people are feeling the urge of confessing like you. Yes, I think you should confess to her clearly, but when the time is right. She may not like you, but if you really really like her, you should absolutely confess to her. But be aware that confessing to one of your friends can ruin your friendship. You have to be cautious, confess when the time is right. 5 months may be long for you, but honestly, that's a short-term crush. Don't rush your confession, and don't give up unless you think you should. Getting over someone can be incredibly hard too, but you're either going to get over her, or confess to her. When the time is right, confess. When the time never seems to come, I'm sorry, but unfortunately, I think it's best if you get over her, because you have to be 100% sure before you confess to someone. You're risking your friendship to, so think if it's really worth it.  I hope I helped you. :)

Monday-Friday, I have to deal with this girl, now none of you know me, so you can't really say I don't do this, but I'll just say it anyway, I don't like being mean, and I HATE talking bad about people I rarely ever do it, but this is just something I can't even fathom. Two of my best friends just got hurt because of her. You'd think that being in an ONLINE SCHOOL this would never happen but it did and it did not go well. I'm a straight A student, I'm a sophomore and I take both 10th grade and 11th grade courses, I'm also doing Advanced Honors and next year I hope to be able to do college courses AND high school courses, anyway. This girl joined our school last year she acts cool like she does all this stuff and every guy falls for it but I've thrown little tests here and there and she's even admitted to me that most of the things she claims to do are lies. She always bullies my friends and I get involved but then my other classmates try to say "You're being mean to her leave her alone!" I of course don't care if she's mean to me but my friends are off limits. So then she starts asking me for help with her school because  I help other students in my free time she was refusing to listen and didn't do well on the quiz and she tells me "I THOUGHT you were supposed to help!?" So she kept asking me for help now I love my teachers and respect them she asked one of them to come into the room because she refused to listen to me, and I was polite and nice like usual and she said "You sure do like your teachers." I called her on it and she was shocked I did. Then I was helping two of my best friends. They are friends with her but I don't get involved, now this girl let's call her Maggie likes the guy let's call him John. John liked her and told me to tell Maggie and I did they were about to get together when this girl the bully begged him to date her instead. He said yes, now this bully has a new boyfriend every other week, and he started being mean to Maggie after he started dating the bully. She just dumped him when he tried to come back into Maggie's life I started snapping him out and being very crude towards him. Is what I did right?
