THE MISTRESS OF DARK…KNOWS EVIL!
Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark, participated in the Women’s March in Los Angeles, CA. Elvira, whose real name is Cassandra Peterson, didn’t appear in costume but she did wear a face mask.
Elvira‘s usual ensemble consists of a fitted long black dress that contributed to her horror icon-status since becoming the host of a horror movie show in the ’80s.
According to iHorror, Peterson wanted to ensure no one would get sick because she had bronchitis. Another reason for the mask was to avoid being asked for autographs. Based on the emoji after her statement on Twitter, I’m assuming Peterson doesn’t mind giving autographs but wanted the focus to be on the march.
