Our Interview with Elvira at Comic Con 2016!

Hey All!

While at Comic Con last week, Vanessa and I were beyond honored to have had the opportunity meet one of my idols Actress/Writer, Cassandra Peterson aka one of pop culture’s most beloved icons, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. I grew up watching Elvira with my mom and I absolutely adored her growing up. I jumped at the chance to meet with her and chat with her about her new book while at Comic Con. It has been 35 years since Elvira made her debut as horror hostess on a local LA television show. To celebrate the milestone anniversary, Cassandra combed through her personal archives to assemble a beautiful 240 page hardcover coffee table book titled, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. The book is filled with over 300 photographs, many never-before-seen, and commentary by Ms. Peterson. It is published by Tweeterhead and will be released on October 5, 2016. The book is currently available for pre-order and can be purchased on www.elvira.com and www.tweeterhead.com.

It was such an amazing experience to chat with her. We chatted about photos that are in the book that have never before been seen, like photos of her dressed as Elvira and pregnant. Fans have never seen that before as of course Elvira is not supposed to have kids. You’ll get to see those pics for the first time in this book. She also shared with me that’s she’s working on an autobiography. I volunteered to pre-order it before it’s even written.

We joked around like two long lost friends. At least that’s how I like to see it in my head.

“This book represents thirty-five years of work: some of it challenging; most of it interesting; all of it fun,” says Cassandra. “I hope you’ll enjoy taking a walk with me down mammary, uh, I mean memory lane.”

We also chatted about how I would like to see her in a Sharknado movie! Elvira NEEDS to be in a Sharknado don’t you think? We did a bunch of social media shares during the interview at SyFy to urge them to put her in the film. If you agree reach out to them and use hash #PutElviraInSharknado! We need to make it happen folks!

Elvira will be appearing at this years San Diego Comic Con on Saturday July 23rd, if you’re in town and have a ticket. Elvira will appear at the Tweeterhead Booth (#5549) from 12:00pm – 1:00pm in the Convention Center.  She will also sign autographs in the Sails Pavilion from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. Go and support Elvira!!!

It was a dream come true to meet her and spend some time with her!
