This style of costume is very fun and can be quite different to dress up as. What a typical Elvira look needs is a very dramatic black evening gown, a knife and belt sheath, dark makeup, and a black mullet style wig. This costume can turn out very beautiful and classic if done right.

About Elvira

Elvira is the personality of a horror movie presentation, but she was also in a horror-comedy movie called Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. In the movie she is played by Cassandra Peterson, who she is in real life when out of costume. She seems like a very sexy goth character, however the beauty of it is that her personality is very different from her actual look. She is actually a very comical and witty character with a funny way of speaking with a Valley-girl accent.
