Today we are remembering Maila Nurmi, more famously know as Vampira. This absolutely stunning, beautiful and talented woman will always be one of my favorite (and first) role model. She deserved so much better than what she got during her later years. She died January 10, 2008 in her home in Hollywood. 85 years old. May you rest in peace. Gone, but you will never be forgotten ♡ You are truly an inspiration.
“every episode, these beautiful, esoteric americans go out of their way to create the worst, most broken, damaged, insecure, fragile messes that even god tried to sweep under the rug. and then the humor is all derived from how much they love these creatures and these people. if you bite all the way down to the chewy nougat at the center of monster factory, you’ll walk away with the feeling that no matter how flawed someone perceives themselves to be, someone out there loves them”
this film reviewer’s take on monster factory is very sweet and i recommend it
