Dracula Costume Ideas

I am looking for ideas for making a Dracula costume for my husband. I bought the teeth, but would like to do the rest as cheaply as possible. Any ideas would be great.

A formal white shirt, black pants, black satin cumberbund, a blood-red bow tie and white Marine's gloves will create the rest of the costume to go with the cape. Add slicked down hair with a slightly off-center part, plus white or very pale face makeup. Add some dark shadow under the eyes and in the cheek hollows, dark eyeliner all around the eye shape, and black mascara to create the menacing look of The Count himself.

Great description of an easy way to become Dracula for the night, Lee! Another addition could be to use a large black handle-tie garbage bag for the cape. As long as it is large enough and you have most of the other elements together, this works really well.
