Cassandra Peterson is the actress who plays Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She’s a real redhead under the black wig.
Peterson designed her own spooky costume for her role as the horror host for a late nite show on a local Los Angeles TV station.
Peterson moved to Las Vegas at 17 and became perhaps the youngest showgirl in Vegas history. It was during that time that she met Elvis. She said he was really kind to her. He told her she had a pretty voice and wanted her to get singing lessons and quit the showgirl scene.
Peterson did a provocative photo shoot under her real name in the seventies. This is a cropped photo from that shoot.
Here’s another cropped pic from that shoot. It’s not linked here but……
Peterson recently said in an interview “The real horror….is Donald Trump. What he’s doing to this country ― he’s ruining our democracy right before our eyes….. It’s way, way scarier than any horror movie could be.”
