Yes, THAT Elvira!
Actress, writer, TV host Cassandra Peterson (the woman behind Elvira) was announced last night as the final headliner for this year's Geek'd Con, which will be taking place August 19th-21st at the Shreveport Convention Center. Elvira joins a guest list that also includes headliners George Perez (creator of The New Teen Titans & The Infinity Gauntlet) and Tara Reid (Sharknado, American Pie, & The Big Lebowki).

Elvira rose to fame in the 1980s, and turned from star to legend in the 90s, and has been elevated to icon-status in the last few years.
Her likeness can be found on everything from shirts to pinball machines. She's been in comic books, cartoons, and has made appearances on live events like The Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, Wrestlemania, Monday Night Football, and more!
