ELVIRA EVERYWHERE!

ELVIRA EVERYWHERE!

By John Roisland

Cassandra Peterson as Elvira / Fair use doctrine.

It's hard to believe it has been 35 years since a lovely redheaded woman entered the entertainment world and changed everything as we knew it - especially the horror industry - by introducing to us her character better known as Elvira Mistress of the Dark!
Elvira has been loved, seen, and adored by millions for over three decades now. From low-budget horror flicks to starring in her own films, Elvira's character brings to the world a bubbly bombshell whose quirky one liners and curvaceous body sky rocketed her to instant notoriety in the horror realm and later in the entertainment industry as a whole. She been photographed more times than anyone probably even knows. Day and night, 12 months a year, blood sweat and tears Cassandra worked her character to the point where she became an icon. I think it is safe to say she has graced us with a character who has become the Queen of Horror.

And with that being said, I can't think of any better time of year than the autumn or Halloween season for Funko Pop to announce their Elvira doll. The doll will stand 3-3/4 inches tall and will be displayed in a window box that matches the other Funko Pop vinyl dolls. This is a must for any serious collector of either Elvira or the horror genre. I, for one, am a collector, and I'll definitely be adding this one whether it goes on my shelf, my desk, or even glued to the dashboard of my car... I will have it!!

Funko Pop Elvira / Fair use doctrine.

And the fun doesn't stop there, Elvira is also releasing a photo album containing over 300 pictures, many of which have never even been seen by the public eye yet. Having seen some images that are included in the book, I was very pleased to say that there was actually a picture of Cassandra. A very lovely, beautifully smiled ,sparkling blue eyed Cassandra Peterson. I thought there was a nice touch to include her in Elvira's world... after all, without one where would the other one be. The book, entitled Elvira Mistress of the Dark, was released October 5th. I would definitely say grab it quickly as I have a feeling this one's going to be moving fast.

Cassandra and Elvira, you’ve earned it!

Cassandra Peterson as Elvira / Fair use doctrine.

Having had the opportunity to have met both Cassandra Peterson and Elvira at Spooky Empire Horror Convention in Orlando, FL, some few years ago, I can honestly say that yes, i would be happy to give her my money. Both ladies were a true pleasure to meet, some have said opposite. I say when the lady has worked so hard for so long (and has dealt with certain types because of her appearance), she has the right to a bad day.

Keep It Evil...

PRODUCT REVIEW: Drink With Lucifer

By Dixielord

Lucifer 33cl
A while back I was on the search for some odd horror and Halloween items. I was looking for something specifically “off the beaten path", and I came across these beautiful glasses emboldened with the name of the shining one himself. The Lucifer snifter glass is a companion to the Belgian ale of the same name.

Now I'm not much of a beer guy as I prefer my booze a bit stronger, but I have had a few beers in my life. Thus I was familiar with the fact that many beers had horror themed, and some might say even sacrilegious names, such as Dixie Blackened Voodoo, Arrogant Bastard Ale (complete with an arrogant demon on the bottle), and the Ale of the Living Dead. However, I was never informed that Lord Lucifer was blessed with his own ale as well as a beautiful glass emblazoned with his name.

Now how cool would it be at your Halloween party to serve your guests in a Lucifer glass? Especially with a horror themed alcohol like one of those mentioned above? The glass weighs about a pound and a half and holds a quarter of a liter of your favorite potion (though Lucifer might get a bit peeved if you don’t try his Belgian strong pale ale in it at least once).

While the actual Lucifer Pale Ale, as far as I could find, isn't available in the states, the glass is a bit easier to get. You can find the Lucifer snifter glass online from several retailers, including Amazon. The price usually runs just under $15. I have mine ordered in time for Halloween, how about you?
