"Mexican Vampire Woman" Pays a Visit to Florida to Become Enshrined in Wax
If you were in the Orlando area last week, you may have noticed that the most demonic-looking human being on Earth was also in town.
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:
