Darla, who made and was later killed by Angel, is a good choice if you want to wear an elaborate 18th-century gown but be a bit scarier.
For Vampira, Drusilla and Darla, you can rent dresses that suit the part and then add makeup accordingly.
Other popular styles include the geometrically-shaped Darla, Kerala, Ethel and Janet, with their sculptural detailing and supple leather.
They formed in 1998, and soon after scored a record deal with indie label Darla.
The following year saw their first release, The Tennessee Fire, come out on Darla to good reviews and increasing interest from fans.
