Martha transformed into a creepy Glampire for the "Bad Things" cover of the 2007 Halloween issue and season 3 of the show. Martha's dramatic cape was made from black silk woven with metallic threads. Fasten it to a black dress with safety pins, and slip on long satin gloves. Martha's stylist, Eva Scrivo, trimmed a black wig into textured layers, then gave Martha a pale face, dark eye makeup, and -- fittingly -- blood-red lips.
