The cost of being a vampire

Vampires' time to shine

Halloween and Day of the Dead may have passed, but that doesn't mean vampires, werewolves and other celebrities of the undead slink away back into the shadows for another year.

Vampires are finally stepping out for their moment in the sun -- the metaphorical sun, of course. The final installment of "Breaking Dawn," a two-part film adapting the final story in the "Twilight" saga has premiered, sending tweens and unabashed adults alike into full vampire feeding frenzy.

Finding out more about the daily, um, "lives" of vampires is of course easier said than done. As any 12-year-old or mom can tell you, vampires thrive in the night. Although romantic novel accounts are a bit conflicting, the general consensus is that they have chiseled or voluptuous features, a charmingly detached issue with staring, and they would never, ever hurt Bella. Well, Edward certainly wouldn't anyway.

Dashing, fanged movie star or not, the logistics of being a vampire in this day and age certainly can't come easily -- or cheaply, for that matter. Dracula would spin in his coffin if he saw how much it costs to dress as dapperly as a vampire must or get a good day's sleep.
