Elvira to Make Final Convention Appearance at Comikaze Expo

It is hard to believe that Elvira, Mistress of the Dark will be making her farewell convention appearance at the Comikaze Expo. I remember when Elvira first made her early appearances on television with the classic B movies and her corny lines. I guess what I remember of her most are her big, beautiful eyes! Elvira is an icon for classic horror even if her movies did not receive the Oscars. Her movies reminded me of the films that would be used in Mystery Science 3000, pure greatness!  We will miss Elvira, but we are grateful to know that we will be able to attend her last appearance event at the 1st Annual Comikaze Expo. We have been looking forward to attending this event for quite some time because Los Angeles needs to finally have a comic con that pop culture fans can enjoy, especially the Pop Culture Zealots

This year will actually be a great year for us knowing this news because we were able to go to the Phoenix Comicon where I was able to attend the Cassandra Peterson panel. We actually have a great video of how she became Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. 

Here is the official Comikaze Expo Press Release:

Comikaze Expo, the largest multimedia pop culture, comic book, horror, anime and gaming convention in California, aka the Los Angeles Comic-Con, has announced it will host horror icon Elvira’s last convention appearance in its premiere event taking place on November 5-6, 2011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Comikaze Expo’s official “Spooksperson,” Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, will sign autographs, pose for photos with fans and take part in various events throughout the Expo.

Elvira became a household name with Elvira’s Movie Macabre, the first nationally syndicated horror movie show.  The weekly series featured the sexy, outrageous movie hostess’ sharp wit and clever banter throughout her tongue-in-cheek commentary of B-movie classics. Her reign as ‘Queen of Halloween’ spans three decades and includes two feature films, her long-running series and two motion control rides.  Her appearance at Comikaze Expo honors the event’s commitment to horror fans and promises a memorable experience for all.

“It’s about time all of my boob-tube fans who've never been lucky enough to say hi in person come out to meet me,” said Elvira. “This will be everybody's last chance to see this busty, beehived broad in the flesh (and not much else!), so jump on that Red Line and head to the L.A. Convention Center, darling. As the hostess with the mostest, I’m gonna bring a little class to this event if it's the last thing I do. Oh yeah, it IS the last thing I'll do. Whatever.”

“We are beyond thrilled and overwhelmed that Elvira is our official ‘Spooksperson’ and is making her final convention appearance right here in L.A., where it all started for her,” says Comikaze Expo CEO Regina Carpinelli. “Since she burst onto the horror scene, she’s been a pop culture pioneer, and is a gorgeous, brilliantly funny woman who never disappoints her fans. It’s an incredible honor to have her be a part of Comikaze.” Carpinelli is encouraging fans to dress like Elvira at Comikaze in honor of the  star’s final convention appearance.
