to think that vampires don't need to wear coats?

Vampires are undead. They have felt the icy touch of death. So why the hell would they need to wear coats?

I've just seen an advert for that twilight film and all the vampires are wearing coats! Why? Surely they don't need to?

DW says vampires can get cold because they retain a sense of touch, but surely because they've died a chilly breeze isn't really a concern anymore?

YABU.
Coats have the ability to be really cool and swirly.
That is all.

SillyBeardyDaddyman Wed 07-Nov-12 20:54:23

Yes yes, long swirly coats are cool, but what about a short jacket? What possible reason does a vampire have for wearing that?!?

PinkFairyDust Wed 07-Nov-12 20:55:16

Are they not capes?!

But Yabu - vampires are awesome and your just a mere mortal

Short coats are so you can pull the collar up and pretend you're as cool as those with the long swirly coats

Style innit. Even if you are dead you need to look cool.

Short jackets over polo neck beige jumpers = yuck

Long black leather coats as per Spike and Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer - yum.

I don't think it is coldness related.

it's so they fit in and people don't know they are vampires duh! smile

Long black swirly coats are reserved for vampires. Thinks its part of their uniform

They wear coats so they fit in and look normal.

Because if they wear coats and go to school nobody will notice their deathly pallor or that they are icy cold.

That's for the Twiglet bunch^

Real vampires wear long coats or capes because they're cool.

To cover up their sparkly arms from mortals if we have to talk Twilight vamps?

Because he looks hot in a leather jacket if we're talking Damon from vampire Diaries, ditto Spike and Angel from Buffy.

But generally, to blend in with all the nonVampires who would be cold, and because it adds some protection when you and your supernatural friends are beating seven bells out of each other?

Or maybe because human habits are hard to let go of?

If you're really after consistency problems with vampires in Twilight...

They don't change and they can't cry tears. And yet they can produce semen containing viable sperm and impregnate humans.

HoneyDragon Wed 07-Nov-12 21:04:01

That's cos the coats cover their gonads warming the sperm to weirdly impregnating status

Well they shouldn't really be wearing any clothes at all, but then that makes filming a bit difficult and the result would be an x-rated movie, so it's just better all-round they wear clothes and coats.

WelshMaenad Wed 07-Nov-12 21:11:18

Frankly, coat-related inconsistency is the least of Twishite's problems.

HoneyDragon Wed 07-Nov-12 21:12:40

Werewolves in most things tend to be coat less and everything else less which pleases me.

TandB Wed 07-Nov-12 21:12:50

Ooh, Spike.

[goes a bit misty-eyed]

See that's the good thing about Vampire Diaries, they get the ridiculousness of clothes and get Damon swanning around in just a towel all the time.

HeadlessForHalloween Wed 07-Nov-12 21:13:28

Well, being able to impregnate a human is about as likely as being twinkly grin

Okay, if the twilight vamps are make of a stony/granite type stuff, how exactly does his willy get erect, and when he penetrates her doesn't it fell like he's pushed a large ice lolly into her?

TandB Wed 07-Nov-12 21:14:24

To answer the OP, if the Twilight vampires didn't wear coats then that would be a slippery slope towards not wearing shirts either, and then you would have a film full of werewolves AND vampires all shirtless in the rain, and glaring moodily over their shoulders at the camera.

RubyGates Wed 07-Nov-12 21:14:26

Louis. Definitely Louis.
You need to be properly 18th Century for the full glory of Vampirnicity.

Nagoo Wed 07-Nov-12 21:16:36

some people like that ice lolly stuff.

HoneyDragon Wed 07-Nov-12 21:18:22

I'd like to investigate Damons ice lolly.

I should've known better than to ask a vampire related question to you lot...
