My Kind of Ghoul

On this day, September 17th, in 1951 a gal was born who would change the way people enjoyed B Grade horror films. This gal I am talking about is Cassandra Peterson who is the one and only Elvira, Mistress of the Dark! This Kansas native grew up to accomplish many amazing things her in life time thus far. She is the youngest person to perform as a Las Vegas Show Girl (she was 17, before you get your mind in the gutter), she has traveled the world, starred in films, had a music career, had her own television program, and has even had her own reality show!

Since the 80's, Cassandra has embodied this character of a strong woman who speaks her mind and takes crap from no one! She is one kitschy lady with a fondness for the dark side of life and doesn't let others keep her down. Elvira shakes things up, stands her ground, and looks  frightfully fierce doing it! Cassandra created a character that I will always adore and hold close to my heart.

From one Ghoul to another, Happy Birthday, Cassandra!
