vampification

noun; derivation
The act of inventing a seductive style/manner. apparent meaning: 'Vampification' means the act of vamping- to vamp (or vamp up) is to give something a new appearance using a patch, or to concoct or invent. A second definition for 'vamp' stems from the word vampire: a seductive woman who uses her sensuality to exploit men. Vampification suggests something sexy, desirable, seductive, and maybe a little more appealing than the traditional makeover to the older women at which the column was directed.
 
Entrenched in the routine of office wear, respectable Mom attire and good old sweats, a woman may not know where to begin the 'vampification.'
Etymology : Vampification, like fetishization, requires the nonexistent verb 'vampify'. It is an affixation, with the noun-forming suffix ñion on the end.
