Mark of the Vampire

Carol Borland, was an American professor, writer, and actress. She is best known for having portrayed Luna, the daughter of Bela Lugosi’s character, Count Mora, in Mark of the Vampire, and for creating the iconic look of the female vampire with her waist-length dark hair and Adrian-designed shroud in this film. The visual designs of both the character of Lily Munster in the television series The Munsters and Vampira played by Maila Nurmi were based on her striking appearance. She was accused of wearing the “wiggiest wig in Hollywood,” but the waist-length hair was her own.

Plan 9 from Outer Space

Maila Nurmi (December 11, 1922 – January 10, 2008) was an actress born in Petsamo, Finland, who created the campy 1950s character Vampira, TV’s first horror host. Her gothic look and extreme 38-17-36 figure made her a ghoulish icon.

Bride of Frankenstein

Though she only appears in a single scene and never speaks a word, Elsa Lanchester’s Bride is without doubt the most iconic female monster of them all.
