VampiraAlas, Vampira has finally removed the “un” from “undead.” Ruth Waytz of writes:

With a heavy heart I deliver the sad news that our friend Maila Nurmi, famous for her portrayal of Vampira, has passed at age 86.

Maila passed away peacefully in her sleep at home.

Funeral arrangements are pending legal steps as Maila had no relatives. Her friends are trying to get her a spot at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and will likely plan some sort of hearse procession for her.

She was the fashion inspiration of many a little goth, and it’s a pity she’s passed.
