Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark, is an icon for many in the horror community. In the 1980s, Cassandra Peterson’s alter ego introduced many of us to some truly terrible movies with her valley girl attitude that contradicted the macabre and sexy outfit she wore.
Decades on, Elvira is just as active as ever. Not long ago, her Claypool comic series was reissued thanks to an Indiegogo campaign. So, it’s no surprise that collectibles based on the gothic babe are still going strong.
This is the case with the latest collectible being produced by Tweeterhead. The company has created a 1:4 scale maquette of Elvira that captures all of the best features of hostess with the mostess.
The $550 polyresin statue can be purchased with an optional $85 autograph card signed by Elvira. Only 350 of these 19″ tall statues are being created. They’ll ship late next year.
“Standing at an impressive 19 inches tall, this maquette is a true work of art. Crafted meticulously from high-quality polyresin, it boasts a level of detail and precision that’s nothing short of exceptional. Every curve, every contour, every nuance of Cassandra Peterson’s likeness has been painstakingly sculpted, resulting in a stunningly accurate representation that captures the essence of the Mistress of the Dark herself.
The attention to detail doesn’t stop there. Elvira’s legendary black dress, a symbol of her bewitching charm, has been faithfully recreated with meticulous, fully sculpted, precision. Her belt dagger and earrings, the subtle yet essential elements of her ensemble, have not been overlooked. These elements, combined with her signature beehive hairdo, dramatic makeup, and real crystal stones applied to her dagger and ring, all come together to create a maquette that truly stands out.”
