How To Dress Like Netflix’s ‘Castlevania’’s Vampire Hunters Trevor, Alucard & Sypha

Netflix’s Castlevania is the king of action heavy, gorgeously gorey and sassy animation. But, more importantly, inspo for big and fluffy capes, flowy robes and trench coats stolen out of the Victorian and Gothic eras.

Based on Capcom’s critically acclaimed Metroidvania-style adventure game series, the show follows a trio of vampire hunters on their quest to take down Dracula. And, despite the whole, ‘burning people on the stake if they’re a vampire,’ thing it has going for it, their fashion makes me wish I lived in their faux era. 

Do you also fuck with these vibes? Here’s how to dress like Trevor Belmont, Alucard and Sypha.

Trevor, my grumpy and sassy vampire hunting boyfriend

Trevor is the last remaining member of the Belmont family, a long line of loud-mouthed, grumpy monster slaying Brits. As such, until Belmont meets Sypha and Alucard, he has no one. He moves from one monster-infested city to the next, carries all of his few belongings with him. So, it’s fitting that he carries a Dior saddle bag, lol. 

To be your true and authentically sassy and whip-slapping selves, find a long sleeve grey button up, a pair of tapered cargo green pants and water-resistant nut coloured boots, accessorised with a Louis Vuitton leather harness, Dior saddle bag and fur bolero.

Alucard, my gentle bisexual vampire prince

The son of Dracula and bisexual king is a gentle sweet boy, especially compared to his violent vampiric father. As a half-human-half-vampire, he’s afraid of indulging in his vampiric instincts and connecting with others. 

He spends most of the new season torn between living a life of total solitude away from civilization in Dracula’s former and learning to be human again and teach some new friends. So, it’s no surprise that his clothes embody his aristocratic, well-mannered and well-dressed sophisticated charm and how it’s hidden behind his conflicted identity. 

Alucard is a long boy. He has long pretty boy silver blond hair, wields a magical shiny longsword and is dressed in a gothic trench coat that drapes him all the way down his thighs. 

You can match that with a nice white Victorian blouse with coils and cuffs for days (check out your nearest op-shop), Gotham black jeans and a pair of Dr Martens chunky boots.

Sypha, Netflix’s secret Avatar and Castlevania’s queen of the elements

Of the three vampire hunters, Sypha the travelling nomadic, powerful sorceress and seeker of knowledge is without a doubt the coolest. She’s practically the show’s version of the Avatar, summoning fire, ice, thunder and wind at wil, and being the team’s absolute power house.

Castlevania’s queen of the elements is someone who’s not afraid to get physical and dirty. She’s constantly curious about the world and wanting to discover new things. She’s a fashionista who’s less worried about her appearance and more about something that’s freeing and comfy. Perfect for catapulting herself into the sky, firing shards of icicles and scorching demons.

And that’s all reflected in how she styles herself. 

Underneath her loose royal blue poncho, Sypha wears a navy blue singlet, pair of black tights and base arm warmers, cream cotton sash belt and tan saltwater sandals. If you’re truly committed to the cause and want her hair, we recommend checking out Bleach London’s Tangerine Dream Super Cool Colour and, if you’re not naturally gifted with curls, getting yourself a perm.

For more irl inspos, why not step into ‘80s fashion and dress like blazer king Stanley Barber from I Am Not Okay With This, or non-conforming queer icon Eric Effiong from Sex Education.

In a perfect world, he’d be married to Tyler the Creator, own an Arcanine and a Lapras, and don his own Sailor Scouts uniform. He tweets @GayWeebDisaster, which is also, coincidentally, how one might describe him.
