A wedding reception? A night at the opera? Not exactly. Close, but no cigar. Pop culture phenomena such as "Twilight" have fed a public fascination with the garlic-averse bloodsuckers. But some people take their affinity for the nosferatu a step further, dressing - and acting - the part. The communities are very tight-knit and stay together for years and years. The thing is, it is very hard to reach them. So what you have to do, and what happens in central Europe, is you have to gather.
Dirk Standaert and Viona ielegems, husband and wife, are two people who provide opportunities to do just that. Several times each year, the Belgian expats open up their palatial century-old estate in the dense forest just north of Magdeburg to members of the community.

A certified dental technician who's been making fangs since , his clients have included "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene. His work as a fangsmith has also led him to another vocation: host of the Endless Night Vampire Ball. The next edition of the semi-annual event - which has previously taken place in Paris, New York and New Orleans - is on November 23 in Berlin. Standaert takes a similar view. While films such as "Twilight," television shows like "True Blood," and countless novels have helped transform the public's perception of vampires from the monsters they were when Bram Stoker first published Dracula in , the effect on the actual vampire community has been minimal.
It has brought some different people into the community, but they don't stay because they think the whole thing is too serious.
