Vampire Superstitions by mirz-alt Vampire Superstitions by mirz-alt
My second entry for the March EMTC. Theme: Superstitions [link] Even though this piece is family-friendly, since it's vampire themed and I tend to do my vampire stuff on this account, I thought it appropriate to upload it here.

That poor vampire is hungry. But is seems our smart emote has filled his room with a variety of things to ward off blood-suckers. :giggle:

Obviously, this piece covers the superstitions about vampires. List of things that will supposedly protect you:

1. A ring of garlic hanging on the wall.
2. A barking dog (obvious the dog is sleeping, but should the vampire enter...)
3. Salt shaker on the nightstand
4. Roses on the nightstand
5. A rosary (prayer beads) hanging on the bed
6. Cross above bed
7. A bucket of holy water
8. Beans scattered on the floor.
9. Though not on the official anti-vampire list, keeping the light on while you sleep to keep the monsters away.

I should note, the beans are not there to ward off the vampire, but supposedly the vampire will become so obsessive in counting them, you can have enough time to run away.

Some art notes, the room is horribly mis-matched decor wide, with green covers, blue curtains, and pink wall. I thought to change it, but frankly I thought it was more realistic. I have a pretty mish-mash bedroom myself style-wise. :giggle:

*** :aww: As with most of my smileys, you may use this on and off dA, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. If you do use it for something, it would be nice if you could comment and let me know. It encourages me to make more smileys if I know people are using/enjoying them.

Please note, this piece is NOT available for commercial use.***

Vampires can't enter a room unless you invite them in. You have to tell them they can come in.

Have you read or seen "Let the Right One In"? Or seen the remake "Let Me In"?

They sure are. If you ever get the chance to check it out from your local library, go for it!

Wow . . . you got 'em all, although I'd heard another one about knotting up string and the Vampire would be compelled to untie all the knots (apparently they're a little Obsessive Compulsive ;P)

Great job! :nod:
