"Mexican Vampire Woman" Pays a Visit to Florida to Become Enshrined in Wax
|Whatever that is, it's going to be made into wax.|
Of course, we're talking about the "Mexican vampire woman" Maria Jose Cristerna, who went to the art department of Ripley's Believe It or Not in Orlando to have her body cast for a life-sized wax replica.
According to Ripley's, the sculpture of Cristerna -- a "mom, artist, businesswoman & full-time vampire" -- will include all of her tattoos, piercings, horns, and the bright-red dreadlocks, among her other strange features.
Ripley's says Cristerna "decided to get a makeover after a difficult chapter in her life," although that didn't include a "makeover" in the traditional sense.
For the sake of gawking, we've included photos of Cristerna as well as a time-lapse video of the molding process for her wax replica below:
