Sara, who was part of witch’s coven at school, decided to become as close to a real-life vampire as possible – splashing out $400 (£292) on fangs as a Christmas present to herself in 2019, before spending another $100 (£73) having them enlarged last year.
Sara has been bodybuilding since 2010, she lifts up to 315lb (22st 5lbs) – the weight of a reindeer – which gives her an incredible muscular physique.
‘I was on the treadmill at the gym one day back in 2010 and was watching these guys lift weights. They looked like they were having so much fun,’ says Sara.
‘So, I just got brave and went up to them and asked them if they could teach me how to do it.
‘Seeing my body change – even within the first month – from boobs and curves into muscle, was really addictive.’
While Sara dabbled in local bodybuilding competitions, she was also interested in the aesthetic side of the sport and posed for some female bodybuilding websites as a model.
‘Soon, I had bulging biceps and firm thighs. I was really hooked on the transformation and, to me, the vampire look was a natural progression,’ she explains.
As a teenager, Sara persuaded her mum to buy her a ouija board as she had always been interested in the occult,
And, inspired by cult teen flick The Craft, she started a coven with three girlfriends at elementary school.
‘It was adorable,’ says Sara. ‘We hid in our parents’ basements, lit candles and did ouija boards and cast spells to make our enemies’ hair fall out like they do in the film.
‘They say sometimes these things take a long time to come to fruition, so I’m still waiting for my spells to work.
‘I’ve always been so fascinated by vampires, too – the fact they have eternal life, super strength, their look, the biting of the neck thing. Everything about them is so cool to me.’
Sara also gets regular botox injections and has dissolvable cheek fillers to maintain her ideal look.
‘Everyone’s obsessed with eternal youth and is getting plastic surgery to keep it these days – and vampires are beautiful forever, too,’ she adds.
As a child, growing up in the small town of Flora, Indiana, Sara also loved superhero cartoons like X-Men – particularly the shape-shifter Mystique – and vampire movies like the Blade franchise.
At one point in her teens, Sara was a goth, dying her hair bold colours and wearing black clothes and lipstick, and her fascination with all things supernatural grew.
‘I just never really grew out of it,’ Sara laughs. ‘It has just evolved over time.’
Approaching a dentist in 2019, Sara asked if he would perform the fangs procedure, expecting him to say no – but he was happy to help.
With the same material used to fill cavities, he moulded two fangs onto her canines, bonded them to her teeth and filed them into points.
‘I was so surprised,’ she says. ‘I didn’t think he would do it. He admitted he’d never done anything like this before, but I was just so happy he would give it a go.
‘It took 20 minutes in total – no numbing, no putty or anything.’
And it was love at first bite when she saw her fangs – although she wished that they were even bigger.
‘My dentist was against making them too big,’ she says.
‘He said a trial and error approach was best in case I had any problems with them.’
While it took Sara a little while to adjust to speaking and eating with her fangs, her family fully embraced her new look.
‘My mum didn’t notice for a couple of days – my grandmother and brother did, but not her,’ she says.
‘She wasn’t sure at first, but I think she likes them now – and my grandmother loves them. I think they’re used to this kind of thing from me.’
And while her employer has a strict dress code regarding tattoos and piercings, fangs are not on the list.
‘My regulars at the diner absolutely love them. They are such a cute conversation starter. I’ve always thought I had a great smile but the fangs really accentuate it,’ says Sara.
‘But I’m really annoyed that I have to keep them covered up with a mask during the pandemic – I just want to show them off to everyone.’
By posting pictures of her look on her Instagram account @bodybyanxiety, Sara has discovered a huge underground vampire community online, whose tastes ranged from dressing up to more extreme rituals.
Sara adds: ‘If I could actually become a vampire, that would be awesome.
‘I see that people do a lot of ritualistic stuff that is more Satanic, but I think that’s kind of silly. I just enjoy the look side of it.
‘That said, if I was invited to a vampire party I would definitely go.’
While she is not in a relationship, she says her fangs are a great ice breaker on dates, too.
‘People ask a lot of questions and I’ll often hear the line, “I hope you don’t bite,” which opens up a bit of flirting.
‘I’ve never really thought about doing vampire role-playing in the bedroom, though, and no-one’s brought that up yet, but I’m adventurous enough to try it.’
In December last year, Sara spent $100 (£73) having her fangs enlarged using the same technique with the same dentist.
Sara has not ruled out having her canines removed and replaced with dental implants to make them even bigger.
Sara is a big fan of Botox and fillers, she is also considering plastic surgery to make her breasts bigger and to have more extreme cheek bones.
‘I want my cheeks to have more structure, like Angelina Jolie in Maleficent – she looks so beautiful in that,’ she says.
‘Before bodybuilding I had boobs and curves, so it would be fun to get them back too. But plastic surgery is a big commitment.’
