Vampira , the Mistress of the NIght Digital Print

$6.00



Vampira aka Maila Elizabeth Syrjäniemi (December 11, 1922 – January 10, 2008),[1] known professionally as Maila Nurmi, was a Finnish-American actress and television personality who created the campy 1950s character Vampira.

The daughter of a Finnish immigrant, Nurmi was raised in Oregon and relocated to Los Angeles in 1940 with hopes to be an actress. After several minor film roles, she found success in the Vampira character, television's first horror host. Nurmi hosted her own series, The Vampira Show, from 1954-55 on KABC-TV.[2]

After the show's cancellation, she appeared in the Ed Wood cult film Plan 9 from Outer Space.[3] She is also billed as Vampira in the 1959 movie, The Beat Generation where she plays a beatnik poet,[4] as well as in the crime film The Big Operator (1959). She was portrayed by Lisa Marie in Tim Burton's 1994 film Ed Wood. -Wikipedia

This piece is my homage to the original Mistress of the Night, Vampira. A true early horror trailblazer Maila Nurmi was as bold as they get. Elvira, Morticia, all of them owe their inspiration to Vampira.

Shipping from United States

Domestic shipping is via USPS first class with delivery confirmation. Domestic shipping times are anywhere from 3-7 days from time of post depending on your location. If for some reason we do not have your item or size in stock you will be notified of the delay and the estimated time of delivery. If you need expedited delivery we are happy to upgrade you to Priority mail. Just email us at time of order and we will give you instructions to adjust your shipping total. We use the shipping notification provided by etsy to let you know that that your package is on it's way and provide you with your tracking number. Once the package is scanned into the postal system it's the responsibility of the postal service to get it to your door. If you have an issue with your delivery please contact us so we can confirm your shipping address or let you know if it gets returned. If the address you have provided is correct to the shipping address that was used and you are still having an issue you will need to contact the postal service.

We will try and keep our shipping rates low but we do need to adjust from time to time to cover our costs.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS NOT GUARANTEED AND IS MADE AT BUYERS RISK. International shipping is also done via USPS first class mail but we cannot offer delivery confirmation and therefore we cannot guarantee international orders. However we can give you a customs number that you can take to your local post to see if they've received it. I've had a 100% success rate with international shipping and intend to keep it that way. Delivery times for international shipping can be between 1-3 weeks depending on your location. We can offer international priority mail upgrade however it is quite spendy.
