Weird Wednesday: Vampire Cruises
Hi again. Welcome back to Weird Wednesday time. I took a little break from Weird Niche Wednesday, but I want to bring it back with YOUR help. If you find a weird niche that you want to tell us about, contact us with your name, your URL, and the niche. If we use it, you'll be mentioned in the post.
If you're new to Weird Wednesday, you're in for a treat. I find weird niches and websites and share them. We'll discuss whether it's a viable niche and also have some fun.
Today's Weird Wednesday was brought to my attention by Tracy Roberts.
Vampire Themed Cruises.
Yep. An entire cruise dedicated to Vampire fanatics. 🙂 (Check it out here if you want to go: http://vampsatsea.com)
Did you see it says “FANG-tasy”? lol! Love it!
Now it's not as weird as the Naked Cruise Ships I blogged about before, but I think it's pretty interesting.
Granted, the Vampire Niche is pretty big. I, myself, have bought more than my share of steamy vampire novels, and I've watched every episode of both Buffy and Angel. (Yes, every episode – even the bad seasons.)
You can get tons of stuff:
Oddly enough, there are vampire onesies. Yep. I can't make this stuff up, guys.
Heck, vampire fans are so bizarre (and I can say that now, since you know I am one), that you can even get Vampire Kitty stamps to use to send your Gramma her birthday card.
So, what do you think? Vampire Cruises — you think it's an indication that this is a viable niche?
Please leave a comment below – and, if you love vampires, you can tell me your favorite vampire book or movie, too. 😀
Thanks, as always, for hanging out for Weird Niche Wednesday with me.
Have a GREAT day!

What a fun niche 😉 I didn’t know there was a cruise for vampire fanatics, but there’s definitely lots of stuff to buy, the stuff you mentioned plus a ton of other cool and crazy stuff from snap on veneer fangs and colored contacts to vials of fake blood and extensive amounts of fascinating jewelry. (not that I’ve ever shopped for such things …. what Amazon order? I don’t know what you’re talking about.)

Hahaha! Looks like Retta can teach us all about it! 😉

That’s just bizarre. I guess it’s true you can never get your niche TOO narrow! Nevertheless, that fanged kitty stamp is just wrong!! LOL

I’m one of those who’s watched all the Buffy & Angel shows too Nicole (2 or 3 times if truth be known!), but I wouldn’t have guessed there were actual cruises set up for them!
My guess would be if there are THAT many, then yes, it would be a viable niche even outside the Halloween season. And if there’s ever a time people are looking for more information to add to it, there’s probably a werewolf nemesis group they could add…or if not, I KNOW there’s a Wicca market out there (although maybe vamps don’t like to share). 🙂

I’m new to Weird Wednesday and after reading about the vampire cruises I’m looking forward to the next post!
I did some quick keyword research and I don’t think it’s a viable nice. Not to make money quickly anyway. It’d take a while to get this to rank and I don’t think it’s worth the effort.

I think that it might be a viable niche even though I did not research it like Ramiro did. There are a lot of vampire fans out there fanned by the Twilight movies and books. I too love to watch Buffy and Angel. There are vampire shows everywhere for people to watch on TV. I just typed Vampires into the Google search engine and got 79,500,000 results. I was looking for the name of the movies and books above that turned out to be Twilight. I have always been a vampire fan but Twilight, Buffy and Angel brought it out in me. LOL

First off, my hats off to GrandmaMarilyn who is posting past midnight (could be vampire?).
Since this is my 1st entry into the wierd niche Wednesday, I hope the niche doesn’t have to be vampire specific so here it is.
The site is about Women in the Mafia and the History of the Italian Mafia specifically. Ranking for keywords as ‘womens names in the mafia’ and ‘history of women in the mafia’
it gets a bit of traffic unfortunately a lot of the comments are in Italian so it’s hard to follow along sometimes.
Best Wishes Nicole, keep up the great stuff.

VAMPIRE CRUISE!! LOL. That’s hilarious. Also there is a ZOMBIE PROM, where people go to a highschool-style dance dressed in full zombie makeup.
