The similarity between the vampire coat and the Gothic coat makes it able to be worn by both men and women. The women’s vampire or Gothic apparel leans more toward the sexy look than the practical look although it does have some practicality.

The women’s apparel consists of corsets and bust enhancers as well as long and short skirts and dresses also long and short coats. Women’s apparel also has various shoes and boots. The men’s apparel is restricted more to pants, coats (long and short), crisp white shirts and shoes and boots.

Although the vampire coat has been in existence since the early Victorian era it gained popularity with the 1920’s silent movie, Nosferantu . The vampire in this movie wore a long coat that fit tightly at the top with a flared skirt and tight long sleeves trimmed with a small fur collar.

No one could ever wear these long coats in the same menacing way that Bella Lugosi did as Count Dracula in his many movies.
