Happy retirement Cassandra Peterson / aka Elvira! It's been fun!

Guessing she'd rather retire while still in good form and remembered fondly. Been a hell of a great run!

Holy crap!  That's how she normally looks???  I would have never thought of her being Elvira out of costume.  She's a beautiful person either way.  Thanks for all of the scares and heartthrobs, Elvira, it's been a fun ride.

Very ironic you should mention that... ;)

Aw I'll miss Elvira! Elvira is awesome. At least we still have Svengoolie on MeTV. Now it's time to play some Pinball Jam!

I found it very ironic how all this worked out. Rick traded me Pinball Jam, which I planned to review during October and show a picture of Cassandra in (I figured some viewers may never have seen her just as herself), and then MaxRD shared this thread as I was making my review which allowed me to mention her retirement (Thanks RD!) and the review just happened to land on the 31st (It was going to be sooner, but got delayed).

 

What a crazy place this IO is!

Yup. That's her. She is a pretty woman, and in her sixties if I might add. I know she has a daughter, too. I read up on it in Wikipedia. Way to go, Cass! I like Elvira in "Pinball Jam," for the Lynx. Fun. :)

Good thing I went ahead and stood in line at this year's Pinfest in Texas then?!

had her sign my Lynx Pinball Jam cart and manual as well. She signed one of them as Cassandra, and the other as Elvira. Awesome!

Oh, darn!  I'm jealous!  I wonder if she'll still do conventions.
