Introducing: The Collective

Dark Greetings!

The Vampire Community, both on line and off has long evaded the limelight, but the more recent trend, thanks to the new onslaught of media from Movies and TV has renewed interest, and has brought to the community droves of young minds, of people who are awakening, though admittedly more are just curious.

Youtube has become an outlet for many of the respected in the community to stand forward. Videos from Zilchey, Michelle Belanger, Don Henri, and other individuals have become commonplace.
Vampyre Lounge and House of The Dreaming, have developed The Collective where rather than tell you a single view point about what vampires are, it instead seeks those out there who would speak from various points of view.

The Collective is hosted by me, Madame X, (and other members of the Dreaming), featuring a series of interviews with various Modern Day Vampires, Community Leaders, Associates, and other Influential individuals. Each interview will be designed to independently focus on specific topics of community interest. House of the Dreaming and Vampyre Lounge will periodically host filming parties and will travel to attend local or out of town events.

For more information on how you can be featured on The Collective, drop us a line.
We are looking forward to zooming in on your perspectives!

I just dont understand why interview like this seem to require people be gothed out, ref-faire types, who honestly look like they would have a great deal of trouble fitting in to normal society.  Its just seems to focus on roleplay.

I'm disgusted...I haven't see so much bunk in one place in a longtime!
These video's are a joke! Dressing and acting like a creature from Hollywood. The only person that even has half a clue is Lady Valfreyja!
It is sad to think that just because people dress the part and act the part that they truly know what creature they are trying to portray,yet in reality they are no more than the creature they feel in their minds as the true damned they call "Vampire". People want to believe someone is a true damned soul because they make video's dressed like they stepped out of a Hollywood movie...who are they trying to convince,themselves or others?
People will accept anyone as the vampire they believe in because...they are their friends,others believe them to be the same type of vampire they believe in,they are famous people so they must be what they say,they have a cool website with lots of information(but is it all accurate),they use words like elder,house,sire,alliance,chair,coven,etc. and not to mention all the pictures of vampires they use for their profile pictures.
People are prancing around believing themselves to be a creature they truly know nothing about yet waking one day and telling themselves they too must be this creature because to them its an attention getter not to mention they think its glamorous!
I have been around for a very long time and more times than none I have not ran across nothing more than the mythical,Hollywood type of creature they call the "Vampire" There are more of these types than the true creatures we are.

I do feel sick myself, I who likes to wear black really anything I see that looks interesting enough I will wear it but it has to look good, I also wouldn't call myself goth if anything I'm sure most wish because I'm pretty hyper active and love to interact. The people interviewed look like they pick anything out that's on the rack that is black, even if that is you're choice if you want someone to take you serious on an interview you should atleast for the time of the interview dress atleast semi nice then maybe the real vampires won't get such a bad review otherwise we all get pointed out as the kids who lost their mind.

Am I the only vampire who doesn't dress all goth? Yeah, most of my shirts are black, but that's because they're Metallica shirts. No one looking at me would think to themselves "I bet she's a vampire" or "I bet she thinks she's a vampire." I've watched a few of these videos posted on youtube. I have to say my general impression is that of the others who've posted on this thread. Seems like a lot of posing and role playing. Maybe not, maybe the people producing the videos actively seek out vampires who dress gothic, but they're not giving a balanced view.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think both Madam-X & Deacon Gray are wearing dark brown in this video and, aside from the ankh pendant, I don't think he looks gothy here.

To tell you the honest truth The real ones you'd know just by their aura or attitude anyone who doesn't push it on others it shouldn't matter what people choose to wear if one can wear white why not wear black. I think they should find a balance and not just go for the goths. And technically the color black isn't the only color for gothic apparel personally the goth look is kind of out done but whatever floats our boat.

I've owned several ankhs, but I've had terrible luck with them. Both pair of silver ankh earrings I had (the studs and the dangles) I lost one of each pair. I bought an ankh ring online that was supposed to be sterling silver, but after 15 minutes of wearing it my skin started turning green, so I know it isn't. The two necklaces I had broke. I'm not supposed to wear an ankh I guess.

Nice to know I'm not the only vampire who doesn't dress all goth or theater style. Blue jeans and a Metallica shirt for me.
