Ohhhh, I remember those scenes in Penny Dreadful now. They were really cool. I also like the idea of having a few different types of vampires. That way some can have a consistent savage form but there can also be the more regal ones.
The idea of wearing human skin to protect themselves from sunlight is also terrifically creepy and awesome — if not vampires, then at least another monster-of-the-week type creature. Thanks for the ideas!
Edit: I just realise you didn’t actually say they wore human skin. That’s just how I read it. Still, it’s an awesome idea.
Yeh, once you experience cool vampires, it’s hard to go back! And, hey, even warlocks need to chill sometimes.
