‘Real life’ vampire woman who has permanent fangs says she can smell blood from distance

Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta.

A woman dedicated to transforming her look into a vampire has had permanent fangs fitted in and says she can smell blood from a distance. Mum Julia Kumpulainen, from Finland, became obsessed with the aesthetics of a vampire in 2012 and said she could relate to their traits. So the 24-year-old from Kotka found a cosmetic dentist who helped give her fangs, a procedure which set her back £430 (€500). Despite having jaw pain and struggling to eat with her sharpened teeth, Julia loves her look and enjoys drinking blood too

But she never cuts herself or others for the sake of drinking. Julia only sucks blood from any wounds that might appear. Julia, who is a mum to Elli, 4, says that her daughter loves her fangs and some people even mistake her for a real vampire and run away in fear. ‘I was always the weird kid, and when I first ever heard about vampires, I knew I wanted to be one, or at least look like one,’ said Julia. ‘I started developing vampiric habits as a teenager, following “how to seem like a vampire” articles religiously.’

KOTKA, FINLAND: THIS WOMAN spent years researching how to become a REAL-LIFE VAMPIRE before finally getting PERMANENT FANGS FITTED and now says she can SMELL BLOOD from a distance and LOVES THE TASTE ? but don?t worry, SHE ?WON?T BITE?. In 2010, mum of one, Julia Kumpulainen (24) from Kotka, Finland, became fascinated with the vampire lifestyle as she felt she had mutual personality traits as movie vampires. She discovered a company that made temporary costume fangs which she would use daily for the next five years, despite having jaw pain and struggling to eat with them. However, in January 2019, she found a cosmetic dentist who made specialised fangs for her teeth that became a permanent feature which costed her over ?430 (?500). She has since received various reactions from strangers with some even asking her to bite them with her fangs. Despite the social perception of vampires, she wants to change the views that all vampires suck blood from people. She can detect the smell of blood and likes the taste, but would never cut herself to drink it, but if she has a blood-exposing would, she would drink it.

For years Julia wore fake Halloween fangs but they caused her pain. So she was delighted when she found a cosmetic dentist who could file her teeth. Julia hopes to make them sharper in future. While she loves them, strangers aren’t so keen. But some ask if she can bite them. She added: ‘If I’m at a bar, I get people asking if they could take pictures or if I could bite them. I won’t. ‘I’ve only had problems with talking to older people and sometimes that I get too deep in this whole vampire thing.’

Her vampire get-up has affected her dating life. Her current partner doesn’t let her bite him as often as he used to. Julia thinks he’s scared of getting bit too hard. She continued: ‘In a dreamworld being a vampire means never having to see the sun, living forever and enjoying your undead life to the fullest when it’s dark. ‘But because the world works how humans want it to, everything happens during the daytime. So, in other words, I’m a day-walker. ‘The main message I want to spread is to inspire others to be themselves. Just go and be you, whether it’s a vampire or a unicorn.’
