It's Halloween Time With Elvira!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I decided to do a series of posts in celebration of this spooky cool holiday. I hope you will come back each day to see what's going on here. These posts will conclude on Friday, October 30th. I will also be doing Halloween posts at my other blog The Dino Lounge. I decided there was no way I could start off these posts without Elvira. She is truly the Mistress of the Dark.

I'm also posting a few videos I came across about Elvira. The first one is actually Cassandra Peterson, the actress behind the character, actually explaining how Elvira came about.

I love Elvira for a couple of reasons.

Michelle said...

I LOVE Elvira. Cassandra Peterson had a run-in with Jimmy Page too ;) The ending was unfortunate, but it's still endlessly entertaining.

Halloween wouldn't be complete without her Keith!

So many awkward memories of youth...or is that mammaries? Elvira's the best--and she's still hot!

Steve Langton said...

Wouldn't mind spending Halloween with her, or any other night for that matter.When cleavage was handed out, she must have been head of the queue.

Daniela said...

Thanks so much for putting this up! I actually love Elvira! She is truly the Mistress of the Dark. I also love Halloween!

Keith said...

Hey K&S. So do I. :-)

Keith said...

Hey Michelle. Thanks for commenting. I didn't know that about Cassandra and Jimmy. Wow.

Keith said...

Hey Lenore. Glad you agree on that. Halloween and Elvira go so well together.

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Thanks. Yeah, Elvira is still beautiful. I love that woman.

Keith said...

Hey Steve. Thanks. I know what you mean. I'd love to spend Halloween or any other time of the year with her. She definitely was blessed with cleavage.

Keith said...

Hey Daniela. Thanks. Glad to see you're an Elvira fan too. I love her. I'm going to watch her movie this weekend.

Good way to kick things off, Keith. Elvira is a lot of fun and not too hard on the eyes either!

If Cher and Dracular had a child, it would be her. :)

Keith said...

Thanks Dina. I thought she would be.

Thanks Sheen. Yeah, she still is.

Hey Rus. So true.

Mondo said...

We only ever saw stills of Elvira in horror mags over here - I never expected her to be as funny. And the movie's great (as I remember it)

Great start Keith!

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed this post. So do you guys in the UK have your own horror hosts like this?

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Awesome post! She certainly is a Halloween icon. I run into one of her every year at costume parties! Hehe!

Keith said...

Hey Jennifer. Thanks for commenting. She's become quite the Halloween icon.

Stephanie said...

I am so excited about seeing the Elvira movie. I haven't seen it since I was a little kid. :) I also am loving that this was your first horror post. :) YEAH, what can I say I love horror and Halloween.

Keith said...

Hey Gypsy. Thanks. Glad you liked that I picked Elvira to start off the Halloween celebrations.

Hey Steph. Thanks. I'm ready to see that Elvira movie. Elvira and Halloween go so well together. Glad you came up with the idea of me doing a post on her.

Mrs. M. said...

Ahh you just don't even know how much i love Elvira! Halloween was the biggest of all holidays at my house (even more so than Christmas). Elvira makes me so nostalgic because seeing her reminds me of watching her movies and specials as a kid. I swear after all these years she hasnt aged a bit. There will never, ever be another mistress of the dark.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, Thanks for the great comment. I'm so happy to see you're such a big fan of hers. I think she's fantastic. She's still very beautiful. She always cracked me up. She could be so funny. I love everything about her. It does bring back memories.
