Lisa Marie


Ed Wood (1994) by Tim Burton - Lisa Marie as Vampira wearing a long black dress with plunging neckline, octopus-like tentacled sleeves and chinched waist.

The iconic Vampira dress was inspired to Morticia Addams’: Maila Nurmi attended choreographer Lester Horton’s annual Bal Caribe Masquerade in a costume inspired by the Addams’ character. This caught the attention of television producer Hunt Stromberg, Jr., who wanted to hire her to host horror movies on the Los Angeles television station KABC-TV.

The costumes of the Burton film were designed by Colleen Atwood.
