Elvira Mistress of the Dark ~~ Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress best known for her on-screen horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ wearing a black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wickedly vampish appearance is offset by her comical character, quirky and quick-witted personality, and Valley girl-type speech.

I've got a picture of Jean Gamboa dressed like Elvira...and it always reminds me of Bart - sitting on the tailgate of a truck with that wig on...cause they were gonna play at a bar that the military had been banned from - and Jean gave it to him to wear that night. He sure didn't wanna go in!!

My Hero. My dad did her hardwood flooring when I was a kid. I don't know if I've fully forgiven him for not introducing me. I'm what happens when your childhood heroes are Elvira and G.L.O.W. wrestlers.
