Why Cassandra Peterson Started Doing Her Own Elvira Makeup

“Extra’s” Charissa Thompson sat down with actress Cassandra Peterson at Universal Studios Hollywood to talk about her new book, “Elvira Mistress of the Dark.”

Along with promoting the table book, which contains more than 350 images from her 35-year career, the two discussed the process of getting the entire look together, which she surprisingly does herself!

Cassandra revealed, "You know what happened, I used to have other people do it, and every time I would be Elvira, I would come out looking a little different. I’d look better sometimes, but I wouldn’t look the same.”

From beginning to end, the entire transformation, including hair and costume, takes two hours to achieve.

“Elvira Mistress of the Dark” is out now!
