It might be possible on a non-reflex lens camera (no mirror to reflect), digital camera or a piece of film in a pinhole camera. It depends on wh…ether the lack of appearance in a mirror is due to mental or physical phenomenon. If it is mental (the vampire is projecting a mental image of the empty mirror) then yes, a photograph will work, but if it is bending the light around itself then no. The problem with the second is that the human eye should be able to see only what the environment can see: we can only perceive what out environment shows. This leads credence to the idea it is a mental thing - the mirror is actually reflecting them, we are being hoodwinked by the vampire..
Since the vampire supposedly needs eye contact for control (like Medusa) being able to see the vampire in a mirror and yet not having direct eye contact might allow a person to avoid the control effect and yet possibly affect their ability to say, stake the vampire. IF the vampire is afraid of what we can possibly see in a regular mirror, it would make sense to cloud our minds as to whether they show in a mirror. Again this leads to another idea: the vampire is able to produce illusions but only small ones, not compete world replacement, since we don't know how the illusions are being created, we don't actually know whether it is possible to generate a full world illusion..
Another note: if the vampire did a full world illusion, maybe she/he would spend so much of his/her energy and mental powers on maintaining the illusion that they would be vulnerable to any nearby Van Helsing. By only using small illusions they are able to protect themselves as needed. (MORE)
This assumes that there is a time when vampires have to go away. Vampires always arrive late and stay to the wee hours before dawn..
(Sigh) Before I continue, it might hel…p to clarify whether we are talking about real or fictional vampires. So, with fictional vampires, the second answer is probably correct, whereas real vampires (yes, they are real - go to http://www.religioustolerance.org/vampyres) are not immobilized during daylight, nor do they "sparkle" in the sun. So, there really is no set time. (MORE)
That's not supposed to happen...Make sure your not confusing your username with your password, always enter your USERNAME, and click LOAD. If you are doing this correctly an…d it continues to show someone else, it could be a malfunction of Poptropica, and in that case there's not much you can do about it. That happens to me from time to time, possibly try again later and see if it works then. If not, I don't think there's anything you can do...Sorry :( (MORE)
