Steve Newlin delivered his now-famous “I am a gay vampire American” speech to Jason while wearing this outfit.In Season 5, Episode 1 of True Blood, Steve has gone from being Rev. Newlin, the head of the Fellowship of the Sun, to a vampire.And he shows up at Jason’s house wearing these olive pleated Club Room wool trousers, small Banana Republic silk/cotton/cashmere lavender sweater, and small Banana Republic purple plaid long-sleeved shirt.Steve wore this outfit onscreen during the memorable scene. The outfit shared screen time with Jason and Jessica.It’s a terrific and recognizable outfit that fans of True Blood will be delighted to own.
Steve didn’t stop until he came close to the highway. The sight of the moving cars shocked his swimming mind back to reality. He didn’t really want to think about anything right now, avoid processing what he had saw, so his subconscious had switched to survival mode. Running away from the danger was the first order of business, but what now?
Sitting down, he had to think. It was unavoidable now.
Russell was gone. All their plans were gone.
The second detail made him feel especially bad, just for the fact that it existed in his mind. His head hasn’t wrapped itself around the reality that Russell was really gone, but the new person that Steve felt like with him had already vanished.
Steve Newlin’s Suit, Shirt, Tie, and Shoes
The first time we see Rev. Steve Newlin, he’s wearing this suit.
It is Season 2, Episode 1 of True Blood, and Steve is on television, debating Nan Flanagan, when we first see him. And we continue with him at lunch afterward.
In fact, at lunch, Steve and Sarah Newlin meet Jason.
In a great scene that parodies political talking heads, Steve, as played by Michael McMillian, goes after the vampire Nan:
"It’s a beautiful sunny morning in America, Miss Flanagan," he says, adding one of the best lines in all True Blood, ”I wish you were here.”
Steve wears this suit throughout the scene.
It’s a dark RENA, 50L (40 U.S.) suit, 15-33 Brooks Brothers shirt, purple sriped Metropolitan View tie, and size 10 Magnanni shoes.
This is a first-rate outfit from one of the best scenes in True Blood.
Fans and collectors are sure to love it.
StAke House Foam Core Poster
Want to keep vampires away? Pick up this great StAkehouse Foam Core poster direct from the StAke House. It has a foam core and is 24-by-35 inches.
The poster features an image sure to worry humans: Russell, just before he kills a newscaster. This one-of-a-kind poster will look great in your TV room, family room, office or anywhere else.
The StAke House makes several appearances in True Blood. Sookie shopped there in Season 5, and so did Maxine Fortenberry. It’s an emporium of all things that vampires hate: UV lights, silver, and, of course, stakes.
The StAke House is closed – along with True Blood – but you can own this screen-used poster from one of the scariest (if you’re a vampire) stores around Bon Temps.
StAke House Steve Newlin Target Sign - 1 of 2
Vampires beware! This sign is from one of the deadliest anti-vampire shops this side of daylight — the StAke House.
The sign is 19.5 x 19.5 inches. Made of heavy cardboard. Double Sided. One of only two available.
The StAke House sprung up after Russell Edgington killed a newscaster on live television, sparking a new wave of fear among humans. Because vampires laugh at ordinary weapons, humans armed themselves with specialty products like UV lights, wooden bullets, and, of course, StAke House’s signature item, stakes.
This item will keep vampires away — and will attract True Blood fans.
