Elvira

I’ve been keeping track of this year’s forthcoming DragonCon guest list, and Elvira was included.  For some reason I was surprised by this, but I shouldn’t be.  DragonCon is very reliable for bringing in sci-fi/horror/TV pop icons. 

Back in the 1980’s, Elvira was hard to miss, first on TV, then everywhere else as her popularity exploded.  I never watched the dreadful horror movies that she hosted, but she had good, campy humor, and she enjoyed quite a bit more than 15 minutes of fame.

Well, as it turns out, Elvira (at the age of 59… a well-preserved age of 59 that is), is back.  On TV.  On the internet.  And, at DragonCon.  I don’t know that I would have planned to see her, but the woman underneath the hair is Cassandra Peterson, and I have to say that the below clip was very entertaining.  Count me in!

  1. Wow. Helen Mirren Saturday night and now Cassandra Peterson. One more and we will have a double "..." trifecta in play!

    Glad I have my tickets as well.
