The Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum in Burbank played host to an art event saluting Guillermo del Toro's Oscar-winning film The Shape of Water on Saturday, July 14. This special art event, introduced by Vampira herself, was curated by the Mystic Museum, Jonny Coffin, Micheline Pitt and Gary Deocampo, and the film's star, Doug Jones, was in attendance. The event featured 60 artists displaying spellbinding Vampira tribute art honoring the retro Queen of Horror as well as abstract pieces inspired by The Shape of Water.
The show was a huge success and the room was filled to capacity. The line to enter was stretched out along the side of the venue. Guests were allowed to enter once space was available and, happy to say, everyone got in. Guests were offered hors d'oeuvres and drinks as they awaited their photo ops with Vampira (Heather Rae) throughout the evening. There was so much to see. Original jewelry, drawings and notes from Vampira also were on display.
Official Vampire and gothic glamour company La Femme en Noir unveiled the Vampira Show Gown, with model Heather Rae wearing a re-creation of the original Vampira dress from 1954.
The show will remain on display through the month of August if you'd like to see it for yourself, at the Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum.
