Elvira: “It’s a great place to go for Halloween because you can get lighting and special effects for your home haunted house. They make macabre home decor and awesome costumes for Halloween or any time of the year. They have a great selection of animated props for your yard or Halloween party.”

Elvira: "My favorite store for all my birthday and Christmas shopping. It’s fantastic. It’s got art and jewelry... I’m sitting here drinking coffee right now out of one of my snake cups [from there]. I have snakes, spiders and all kinds of macabre items. Just a beautiful store with one-of-a-kind spooky art items."

Elvira: "This is really for the hardcore and I’m not joking. It’s got a lot to do with the deaths of serial killers and the deaths that they incurred. People have been known to faint there…mostly guys. This is not for the kiddies, let me tell you. If you want a place to take your family…if your family is the Manson family… then you will really enjoy the Museum of Death."

Elvira: “It's full of bones, bugs, taxidermy. A few of my favorite things. If you’re in the market for human incisors or a mink penis in a vial, this is your place to go. They also have medical supplies that everybody needs in their home like glass eyes, anatomical hearts, bat skeletons, animal x-rays. They also have a really great line of paper products like creepy greeting cards, tarot cards and all kinds of bizarre books.”

Elvira: "It's really kind of a landmark. It was there for years and then kind of folded up. Recently, it made its reappearance back in the Valley. It’s like the film and TV industry’s most comprehensive collection of fantasy, sci-fi and horror memorabilia. A lot of Elvira stuff, of course. There are toys, model kits, fan-zines, rare soundtracks from film and television shows. They host special screenings, book signings and special exhibits. You never know what you’ll find there. Really a staple in L.A."

Elvira: "I go to this place all the time. It’s run by this adorable couple named Michelle and Ash Ghoulmore. They live the lifestyle. This store is all about horror-themed clothing and accessories. Really, really cute stuff… including lines of Elvira clothing and Vampira clothing. You can get a hair bow with an eyeball in it. Or a coffin-shaped purse. Really fun things... even for little kids."
