Cassandra Peterson's quotes

  • [In 1998, reacting to being told that Monica Lewinsky liked to compare herself to Elvira] At least, I get my little black dress cleaned once in a while.
  • [on her career before she landed her "Elvira" job in 1981] I was your typical struggling actress. I went to every audition, took a million acting, dancing and singing lessons, and spent years wondering where my next meal was coming from.
  • [her legacy] How do I want to be remembered? I'd ideally love for Elvira to remain a Halloween icon. But as Cassandra, I'd like to be remembered as someone who had time to be a good mother.
  • [continuing as Elvira] The day I start looking pathetic in the outfit is the time to hang it up. When she gets old enough, I'll put my daughter in that dress and she can go out and be the new Elvira.
  • [meeting Elvis] When I was a Vegas showgirl, Elvis had a party that I was invited to. He gravitated to me because I was 17 and the other showgirls were in their thirties. It was a dream come true.
