True Blood Fashion Q&A: Jessica’s Red Riding Hood Costume

By  |  3 Comments

Halloween is just a few weeks away, and judging by the number of emails we received asking about Jessica’s sexy Red Riding Hood costume from the True Blood season finale, Truebies are looking to slay some big bad wolves this year! We asked True Blood costume designer Audrey Fisher for the scoop on the outfit so you can recreate it.

The Cloak

The gorgeous red-hooded cloak Jessica wears was designed and built in-house. But don’t despair! Audrey gave us some details to pass on: they used blood red silk velvet for the cloak and lined it with matching red silk so it would flutter and whip in the breeze as she ran through the forest. The fabric is important if you want the flirty flutter and beautiful drape that Jessica’s cloak had. Check your local sewing/craft store for patterns; it shouldn’t be hard to find one at this time of year.

The Corset

The corset was from Fredericks of Hollywood and is no longer available in exactly that style. However, they have a couple other options: The Hollywood Dream Lace Halter Corset and the Parisian Satin & Lace Corset, both available in red/black.

The Panties & Stockings

Audrey couldn’t remember if the panties were by Jezebel or B’Tempt’d, but both brands have good selections to choose from. The black stockings were from a local vendor in Los Angeles, but again, easy to come by either locally or online.

Now go get sexy, ladies! And watch for more True Blood-themed Halloween costumes, party ideas, and decorations from over the next few weeks.

    She looked really nice in that get-up. I remember thinking who the hell is that gonna be when they showed it on the previews.

    Also, any tips on finding a wig? Most red ones are either bright red or too dark auburn…

      How about temporarily dying your hair red? Or if that doesn’t work, perhaps find a blond wig and dye it? Not sure if that would work since it would likely be synthetic hair, but maybe…?
