This is the second in what I hope will be an annual series of Halloween MOCs. About half a year ago, I got a message from JW suggesting that if you flipped a BOHROK'S teeth upside-down, they'd look like vampire fangs. I found it to be so amusing that I couldn't resist putting together a MOC that uses them. As MOCs go, it's about as simple as they get, using just a basic NUHVOK with it's teeth flipped upside-down, a pair of LEHVAK eyes, a black VU, and a spare Darth Vader cape (because it wouldn't look half as amusing without a cape that's over twice as long as it is tall).

I debated using a solid black faceplate, but while that worked nicely for the NOAOKE BOHROK, I felt it would look too sinister for this MOC. I also thought about using a red VU to match the eyes, but it didn't really fit the look. The biggest problem was figuring out how to attach the cape. Once I came up with that idea, I wasn't willing to abandon it, but my original thought was to hook it to the black towballs that hold the green elastic band, and I discovered that they're too far apart to fit into the holes on the cape.
