Lestat de Lioncourt (Amalgamation of Novel and Movie versions) - The Vampire Chronicles





Since I was quite young, I have been in love with vampires and no series has captured me more completely than the Vampire Chronicles series of novels. I know, of course, that I can never really pull off any of Anne Rice's visions of perfection...however I was told by several people that I could at least pull off Lestat's characterisation well and this I tend to agree with.

I have roleplayed Lestat on and off for years now and think I can at least act like him, so when a few of my friends asked me to be Lestat, I thought...why not? It's only a bit of fun and after all, who could resist being the Brat Prince for a day? ;-)

This is likely to be a mix of the blue velvet version from the movie Interview with a Vampire and various descriptions from the novels as Tom Cruise was far from perfect as Lestat de Lioncourt! I may even throw in a dash of the version from "Lestat: The Musical" but we shall see!

Awesome, SJ! I only hope you show more dedication than me in completing this costume! (has been slacking off horribly recently!) Have every faith you will make a fab Lestat!

PKNIVES: I've almost finished it. I just need a wig! The problem is that I don't know if I can truly pull off the Brat Prince and I am beginning to feel apprehensive!

PKNIVES posted on 3 July, 2009 - 12:19
Pfffft! Of course you can! You'll be awesome. Almost finished? Good lord man! Slow down, give the rest of us a chance! Ha ha, just kidding, great work - Good luck in the wig search. Mine was from ebay but it's far from perfect - Why are they so difficult to find in that style? Where will you be debuting this costume for our viewing pleasure? Talk soon! X

Dear Goodness do you have any idea how much I love Lestat de Lioncourt?! He is my ALL TIME favourite male character ever and undisputed favourite vamp. The Vampire Chronicles raised me through my teens, Anne Rice is sooo gifted. In love with this idea can't wait to see it completed!

sjbonnar posted on 10 May, 2013 - 14:13
He's my favourite character in ANYTHING. I was exactly the same! Anne Rice is a master (though her recent works are a bit...um...lacking) I actually finished this but was so disappointed in how gross I looked that I never took photos...
