Oh Ms. Pinky! For today’s Manic Monday, our own Ms. World traveler is talking about none other than the iconic Elvira Mistress of the Dark! How can you not love some Elvira? Seriously, she is just the pinnacle of awesome!
Pinky was traveling, like she’s been doing every week… (How nice for her! Grumble) and was able to meet the icon. I was able to meet her last year and she was so adorable and sweet!
Check out Pinky’s full recap below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy here trying to recover from all the fun adventures and trips we’ve been taking lately. One of these trips took us to Knoxville, Tennessee for the Fanboy Expo – great name, huh? Of all the featured guests, one name stood out to me as someone who I feel like I’ve known since childhood as she was on my TV screen on a weekly basis. I couldn’t wait to get the chance to meet Cassandra Peterson, or as she’s better known, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
I remember seeing her face practically every Saturday growing up as she introduced whatever movie she was presenting that week. I didn’t always care for the movies, but I definitely enjoyed watching her.
Elvira was campy, fun, and so over-the-top you couldn’t help but love her.
Now I remember her doing some shows in the area within the past few years, but for whatever reason I’d never met her.
I’m kicking myself for not meeting her in all her Elvira regalia – that would’ve been amazing! Still, it was great to walk down to her booth with Keith (they knew each other years ago)
(Editor’s Note: Who is this Keith? Have we heard about him before? M-)
and get a chance to speak with her briefly and let her know how much I appreciated and looked forward to her work growing up.
I never expected her to be quite so beautiful in person without all the make-up though. Who knew that beauty was hiding underneath there? And is all that make-up Elvira wears from some Fountain of Youth? How does she look so incredibly young? It must be quite the unique experience to be such an iconic figure and basically make a living for the rest of your life as this out-of-this-world character, Elvira. I mean, how much merchandise must she have in her house? Does she love it? So many questions…
