A Dream of Dracula

Posts, articles, and information of vampire media (literature, films and merchandise) usually pre-2000's. ALL VAMPIRES, ALL THE TIME!

This is run by 18 year old Elizabeth, who is learning as well as knowing. The blog name comes from the vampire study of Leonard Wolf's book 'A Dream Of Dracula'.

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

I just…I would really like these two things please: Fortress of the Elder God and Vampire Hunter/Another: The Noble GreylancerI could try to read them to work on my Japanese skills! The English translation of Fortress of the Elder God doesn’t come out until fall of next year. Also, there are no plans to translate the Greylancer series into English, so this might be the only way I can read it.

VHD fans, I present to you my greatest desire at the moment. I have just finished Tyrant’s Stars, Parts 3 & 4 and reading the first chapter of Fortress of the Elder God, with looks absolutely mind-bogglingly amazing and I don’t know how I’m going to wait till next fall for it! I need more of you in my life, D!
