The Most Realistic Vampire Fangs For Halloween

Dating back to Bela Lugosi's portrayal as the famous vampire Dracula, moving into 90s pop culture shows like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and all the way to "Twilight," vampires have long been a pop culture phenomenon. According to Reuters, vampire popularity has become a full-blown subculture.

"Self-identified vampires realize humans are a mix of light and dark," sociologist D.J. Williams told the outlet. "There is the socially desirable self that people show in public and then there is the shadow self that may not be as nice, not as optimistic. It varies from person to person, but generally vampires don't pretend it's not there: they acknowledge it and try to manage it."

Okay, so maybe you're not looking to join the vampire subculture as much as you want to dress up as one for Halloween. That's cool too. According to NPR, vampires are amongst the most popular costumes in the U.S. each year.

What will really set your costume apart from all the other Draculas roaming the streets on October 31st, though, is a set of frightening fangs. The fangs complete the costume, so it will pay off to have the most realistic-looking ones on the market, and we know just where to find them.

You can find the most realistic fangs at Spirit Halloween or on Amazon

If you're dressing up as a vampire this Halloween, you likely want to look the part to the best of your ability. Nothing pulls a vampire costume together quite like a pair of fangs. According to Bustle, several companies make realistic-looking fangs that won't break the bank.

Believe it or not, the fangs that look the best can be found at Spirit Halloween. Gone are the days of wearing annoying plastic fangs that cut up your mouth. The brand Scarecrow makes custom fangs that you can fix to fit your mouth perfectly, and they can be purchased from the infamous Halloween store. They come with an application set that will make putting them on your teeth as pie. With a 4.4 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon, it's safe to say these fangs are a hit.

One reviewer laid out the whole experience. The review read, "At first I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this product but honestly I'm shocked at how well they work. When opening the package the kit for the fangs includes 6 bonding powder pills, 1 mixing container, 1 'stake' for mixing, and also 1 vial of bonding liquid. The instructions were easy to follow and although the smell for the bonding liquid isn't great I didn't mind too much." They continued, "It's a great buy for those looking for reusable fangs and worth the money in my opinion."

Mostly Dead makes the best full set of fangs on the market

If you are looking for a full set of fangs, Bustle recommends the Nightslayer Vampire Fangs from Mostly Dead. While the Scarecrow set mentioned above contains two fangs you place on the desired teeth, the Mostly Dead set is a full strip of fake teeth and fangs. It gives a very old-school, plastic vampire fangs from childhood vibe but with much better quality. Like the Scarecrow set of fangs, these are custom molded to fit your mouth perfectly. They are the second model, which means they are new and improved, ready to stay in place while you channel your best Dracula on Halloween night. They retail for $30.

Want to show off a bit more with your fangs this spooky season? Bustle recommends trying a retractable pair from Special FX Fangs. You can grab a pair of these from Walmart for under $6. These might not be as high of quality as the other fangs listed, but they are a lot of fun!
