    Suddenly the mother looks a lot like her eldest daughter, scary thought!

    My heart’s on fire-a for Elvira. (Look! She found a place where she could rent a costume AND a body.)

    This mom is what her eldest daughter aspires to.

    She’s Elvira, Mistress of the Dark!

    Once I saw Cassandra Petersen without her Elvira make-up. You’d never know it was her, not in a million years.

    A scarier thought is the exact opposite!

    It’s not quite a misquotation, but the extra comma in the Shakespeare line reinforces a very common misunderstanding of the line, that usually comes from quoting only the first clause.

    The actual meaning is perhaps best understood by postponing the IS: “NOW the winter of our discontent IS MADE glorious summer by this son [sun] of York.” You could even put HAS BEEN MADE for IS MADE to fit the modern ear a little more.

    That can be understood as answering “What just happened?” and the answer is paraphrased as “Winter has been made summer”. If all you quote is “Now is the winter of our discontent” — or as here set it off with a pause — you’re in effect answering the mere chronological question “What season is it now?” .

    The hair’s not right for Elvira. She must be going as Vampira.

    I was going to comment on the Elvira/Vampira question, but I found the discourse on the Shakespearean quote to be much more fascinating.

    Thank you. I appreciate when someone can replace “common knowledge” with the real context.

    The old style Goth look is good on her. Better with the long dark tresses. However Hugh needs to get it in gear here.
