Personal Quote:

[In 2014, on her dream date with Elvis Presley] I was a big groupie. I loved music. I got to realize the dream of actually meeting Elvis and actually going out on a date with Elvis, so that was a dream come true for me. There was a lot of making out going on. We had a great time. See more »


Was close friends with Vincent Price. See more »


As Elvira: Beauty mark (mole) under her right eye, black dress with the plunging neckline and slit on the right side, ruby ring, snake-shapped earrings, black fingernails, black pumps, the dagger she stores on her belt, and her bouffant hairstyle. See more »
