Black Leather Coat

Traditionally, it is hard to think of vampires without associating them with bats. Dracula, the definitive vampire, turned into a bat on numerous occasions. Bat transformation gave him a means to escape immediate danger. It was also a way to move undetected, stalking his prey and swooping in for an attack.

Although we do not witness Spike turn into a bat, his leather coat is an excellent way of conveying the cloaking, swooping qualities we normally associate with this creature of the night. His leather coat looks much like the wings of a bat when at rest. The coat that Spike wears is very long, made from soft leather and it moves freely as he does.

Spike and his Leather Coat

In the early days of Spike, he was scarcely seen without his coat as it is a strong means of identifying and accentuating the essence of his personality. Bold, masculine, predatory, agile, it was truly an inspired way of conveying his vampire evil persona and is an invaluable part of your Spike Costume.

Description

This quality coat is made from real sheepskin leather with an inner lining that is polyester. With button closure down the front, it has two front waist-high slash pockets. At the back you will find several slits along the seams, just like Spike’s coat, which allow for freedom of movement.

Budget Version

If you are on a tight budget you could consider this Very Long Cardigan alternative. It may not have the gravitas of the leather coat, but you will get the same ‘bat-like’ effect and it is enormous fun to wear.

Verdict

This leather coat is a dream to wear. The long length, quality leather makes it an ideal choice for matching with your Spike Costume. Such a quality leather coat deserves to be aired and not just at comic-con and Halloween. Add this to your everyday wardrobe and it is sure to get plenty of wear, even when you are not blasting into Sunnydale as the coolest vampire in town. Yeah, we know Angel is cool too, but Spike knows how to have fun!

Blonde Wig

Blonde Bad Boy

When Spike first burst onto our screens, he made a striking statement with his Billy Idol style blonde hair and leather gear. The English accent, confident swagger and blunt nature quickly endeared him to us as the new bad boy in town. There are two elements of Spike’s appearance that immediately identify him. One is his long leather coat, the other is his shockingly blonde hair.

Spike by name Spike by nature

You might be forgiven for thinking that Spike earned his name from his clipped blonde hair or his ‘spikey’ personality. Neither is true. He in fact earned it from his reputation for attacking victims with a railroad spike. In a flash back episode to when Spike was alive, we hear one of his harshest critics loudly declaring that he would rather have his head impaled with a railroad spike than listen to more of William’s (Spike’s) poetry. Be careful what you wish for, we would say.

Creating the Spike Hair

If you have been blessed with short blonde hair that stays where it is put, then you can create the Spike hairdo with some hair products and a little patience. If you need a little help in the hair department, your best and easiest option is a short, blonde wig.

Description

This is a high quality wig made from Japanese Kanekalon fibre. Ideally, it is suited to someone with a head circumference of 22 – 22.75 inches. You will find it has a soft, stretch cap with adjustable straps so you can achieve the best fit for you. This wig can be washed in cold water with a little shampoo. After washing, wait until thoroughly dry and then you can style your wig by gently brushing and teasing into place. If you add styling products, make sure they are suitable for synthentic hair.

Verdict

This is a quality wig at an affordable price that will transform your appearance. Short and very blonde, it is an ideal wig for matching with your Spike Costume. The soft, wig cap comes with adjustable straps so you can achieve the best, comfort fit for you. Ideally, it is suitable with those with a head circumference between 22 – 22.75 inches. This wig can be washed with cold water and gently styled.

Whether it is for Halloween, comic-convention or just to channel your inner Spike, this is a great wig for creating your Spike Costume. You will probably be tempted to wear this out even when you are not being Sunnydale’s baddest blonde vampire.

Jeans

When it comes to selecting his clothes, Spike has been very practical. He chooses dark color that can hide blood stains and dust. It is also important that he can move freely for those impromptu fight sequences with demons, other vampires and more importantly, the slayer.

Red Shirt

We sometimes see Spike wearing a red shirt underneath his coat. During the Thanksgiving episode when Spike is taking refuge from The Initiative in Giles’ house, we see him tied to a chair without his leather coat but wearing his red shirt. For a vampire, if you want to inject a little color into your ensemble, it is the ideal color to choose. It co-ordinates well with black for a truly masculine look but above all else it hides the blood-stains.

Roguish in Red

The way Spike wears his shirt is usually open. Under his coat, this creates a stylish layer look that adds a splash of color but does not take over from the dominant black. You could be forgiven for thinking he is wearing a red waistcoat because of how Spike wears it, but is in infact a loose fitting, soft, red shirt.

This is an optional part of Spike’s Costume as you could certainly get away with just the black T-shirt and his leather coat. However, we think it makes a great splash of color and adds to the layer look which Spike wears so well. The shirt we have selected is plain red in a flannel fabric that hangs beautifully and co-ordinates so well with the rest of his ensemble.

Description

This beautiful cotton flannel shirt is made from a fabric designed to draw moisture away from your body, keeping you cool and comfortable. With a tidy collar and button closure down the front, it has two breast pockets with lapel flaps over. This shirt is available in a large choice of colors and a practical range of sizes.

Verdict

This shirt is an optional extra to add to your Spike Costume but you will be glad you have included it. Spike is often seen wearing his plain red shirt and this is an excellent choice to match with your Spike Costume. The fabric is designed to draw moisture away from your body so it is comfortable and practical. The design works well with your Spike Costume but is an excellent shirt to have in your wardrobe. When you are not engaged as Sunnydale’s favourite blonde bad boy, you are going to get plenty of wear from this delightful, stylish and well made shirt.

Spike Makeup

Does he or Doesn’t He?

At first glance you might be forgiven for thinking that Spike does not wear any makeup. However, for that true, palid, lack of circulation, vampire look, you might want to consider adding a modest amount of makeup.

Foundation makeup

The simplest way to create the bloodless, never see the sunlight look, is to cover your whole face in a shade of foundation that is a couple of shades lighter than your own skin tone. Don’t forget to add some to your lips as they should be pale also.

Tip: It’s a good idea to do this before you put your wig on to make sure to get right up to your own hair line without marking your wig.

Black Eye Liner Pencil

Draw a line close to your eye lashes to add accent to your eyes and make them pop! A great tip is to gently smooth the line out with a cotton-bud. You can also gently apply this eyeliner crayon on your eyebrows to highlight them which will accentuate the blondeness of Spike’s hair.

At various times, Spike has leaned quite heavily on the eyeliner. During his second slayer battle, Spike’s eyes were heavily accented with black. It was at the end of this battle that Spike purloined his infamous leather coat, stealing it from the body of the slayer he had just killed.

It just goes to show, with the right outfit you don’t need as much makeup. Fashion tips from a vampire. Who knew?

White Eyeliner

If you want to recreate Spike’s scar, we suggest you experiment with some hair laquer to create a gap in your eye brow and then accentuate the scar line with a white makeup pencil. Gently add a line of black along side to give a 3D look. With a little practice and some patience, you too can have a scar like Spike’s!

A Scar is Born

Fans of Spike may recall that he earned a ‘V’ shaped scar over his left eye during his first battle with a slayer. In reality, the scar is a genuine blemish on the face of actor James Marsters which he acquired when he found himself on the victim end of a real life mugging. Makeup artist Todd Mackintosh made the most of James’ own scar by shaving part of James’ eyebrow and accentuating the scar underneath.

Cigarettes

Spike is known to smoke the occasional cigarette. Well, when you are nearly 200 years old with perfect skin and no circulation, why not? If you want to capture the moment without having to inhale, why not get some of these realistic looking cigarettes?

Fashioned to closely resemble filter tipped cigarettes, these cigarettes give the illusion of being lit and emit smoke when puffed. Excellent accessory for complimenting your Spike costume.

Spike’s birth name is William Pratt. This is a homage to the iconic star of horror movies, Boris Karloff, whose real name was William Henry Pratt.
