Below: As the banner says: Elvira - Queen of Halloween!
I've met Cassandra Petersen before at different comic conventions; when she is either presenting a program as herself, or when she is costumed as 'Elvira'.
For me, Halloween would usually include some sort of 'Elvira' theme. I lived in the Los Angeles Metro area for a while, which includes the period of time that Elvira started hosting the late night film shows.
I was also there when she helped transform Knott's Berry Farm into Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park.
So yeah... Elvira has been part of my Halloween for several years in one format or the other. And that would include comic books! Both the DC House of Mystery series with Elvira, and also Claypool Comics' series - Elvira, Mistress of the Dark!
Enough listening to me ramble on about Elvira...

CONVENTION PHOTOS FEATURETTE: So the question was posed in the title of this blog: "What's Halloween... Without Elvira?!" Well, to others it could be the question: "What's Halloween... Without Zombies?!" For the answer to that question, You might want to take a look at Mike Hampton's web site where the "Hot Zombie Chicks" reign! I met Mike at the recent 2009 Long Beach Comic Con where he had a few of his self-published comics at his table. I haven't blogged about his publication as of yet, (still have several more to blog about yet from the LBCC), but in the meantime You can check out Mike's web site at: http://www.916halo.com/hotzombiechicks.html !
