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!

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!

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.

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!

Heh, well a long overdue update but in case anyone has not noticed but obviously I, as apparently many I know, took this "retirement" out of context. To be clear, she retired the ELVIRA character ONLY from headlining at Knox Berry Farms where she headlines a live show for many years. She did this to free up time and pursue other projects like her autobiography and an animated project which I am guessing was her characters appearance on a recent Scooby Doo Halloween special. So,now at 69 she is STILL rocking and to celebrate and be thankful here is a recent video she released - I've never been happier to be wrong 😛
