Vampire Woman from Mexico

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to Immortalize the World-Famous Mexican Vampire Woman!

Ripley’s F/X team will make wax figures of wildly-transformed woman on September 15

Like many women, Maria Jose Cristerna decided to get a makeover after a difficult chapter in her life – but no other woman in the world has gone through a makeover like this.

Cristerna has transformed herself into a vampire, complete with fangs and horns on her head. She’s now known around the world as the Mexican Vampire Woman. What might be more amazing than her appearance is the fact that she’s a lawyer.

She’s a graduate of UNIVA, a private Catholic university in Mexico, and practiced law before starting her own business.


Before - In Between - Today

 


Former attorney turned into vampire (wait ... isn't that the same?)

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is bringing the Mexican Vampire Woman to its headquarters in Orlando, where Ripley’s F/X team will take body casts of her and create life-size figures for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attractions around the world.

  5. She is so beatifull before change ,,I DOn’t know why she change but i like first pict”

  6. i know right but it’s her choice if she wants to look like that!

  7. Aww she was so pretty before!!! :( Ps. How the heack do you make those faces???? O.o

  8. oh nvm i see

  9. speechless and not in a good way

  10. She’s beautiful in her own way.

  11. wow she looks badasss, you know.. her and lizzard man should be together, hahaha that’s be whatsuppp.

  12. She is beautiful either way and I think before she changed she looked like Jamie Gertz.

  13. يا مامي انا متير بخاف من هيك اشكال الله ياخدها يا رب مش حرااااام الله يعين زوجها واولادها تفووووووووووووو :p

  14. She is AMAZING!!

  15. I can’t belive she looks like that and she’s a mom of four.

  16. I think she is insanely gorgeous! Seriously, it is not every day you see someone so entirely without care for the world’s view of them… So willing to express themselves and take their physical appearance so far in the direction of THEIR personal identity. My hats off to her for not only being one of the most uniquely stunning women I have seen in my lifetime but for truly going above and beyond the call of duty when telling the world “THIS is ME and I DON’T give a DAMN what YOU think about it!”

  17. Wow not really bad for me :)

  18. I wonder if she drinks everyones blood?…………well…………….well…..ya ya ya its a little scary:(
    But but she looks nice when I go to Mexico I MIT see her so yay :D :D:D:D have a great day :)

  19. SHE IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET

  20. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON HER POOR SOUL

    • Allah is my only god says:

      Allah created her in the perfect face ,how could she do something like that to herself?! ….it’s not a freedom it’s opposition of the nature that Allah created it ….women are created to give her children,husband and all the people kindness and beauty even if she is average looking , she killed her femininity and humanity ….she will be scary all the way…..

      children see through souls even if the man who has kind soul is not good looking (as his nature) they will love that kind soul man , what about this woman?! she is turned out like that cos she has a poor evil soul… put a child infront of her and if he doesn’t cry so she is good if not she is not …..

      it’s not cos children are little but cos children have pure ,innocent soul and give pure love and smile….

      I pray for her to get back to the right track and know the truth about human being and the whole universe controlled by Allah’s will

      • What she looks like has nothing to do with this “being” you keep referring to as Allah..children will be frightened NOT because she is evil but because she looks scary. It’s common sense and we are created purely because our parents have sex. There is no other reason. P.s. We control what we do, nobody or nothing else.

        Back on topic. What she looks like is up to her. She is obviously happy with how she looks. It’s not for me, and i don’t like it but if it pleases her, then good for her.

        • Question: Just to clarify. It’s okay for her to look as she pleases, but it however is NOT okay for “Allah is my only god” to put his/her faith where they believe? Just to get on the same page here.

    What an amazing women. I think she looks fantastic, and unique you’ll never find another that looks like her. She was pretty before but she’s still beautiful in a different kind of way. This women is a lawyer mother of 4 business women, who owns her own tattoo, body transform and piercing studio. She’s definately got her head screwed on, And an advocate for women who are going thru domestic violence. Now that is amazing no wonder she’s on ripley’s you go girl.

  22. she look like lady gaga.

  23. Roxsan Ambrosini says:

    …HER REASON FOR THIS DRASTIC CHANGE…IS A STATEMENT AGAINST BATTERED WOMEN…

  24. Kreepy I would never do that if I were her she is way to pretty. I mean i love Ripley’s and all but the tattoes don’t amuse me at all. The actually disgust me a lot. Thanks for reading love u Ripley’s

  25. I think she looks goddam cool but I find the horns very creepy and I don’t like them.

    Also she should change the shape she goes for with the eyebrows so they look less like Spock’s.

    But either way I think she looked beautiful before and rock on awesome after.

  26. THAT IS #@*%! AWESOME I WISH I WAS HER GOD IS SHE HOT I WOULD LOVE TO MEET HER I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS SEE BUT I SEE AWESOME

  27. If you actually bothered to look up any other information on her instead of flying into a rant on what she has done to herself, you would find out that her modifications are her way of coping with years of abuse, and that she has used her outlet as a way to raise money for other abused women.

    Typical that so many should only judge someone for their appearance.

    • she is beautiful, i would LOVE to meet her some time. even though i dont speak much spanish i would take the time to learn just so that i could talk to her.
      Much love, jessica lynn moreno

  28. Bob Johnson says:

    To transform herself like this is truly incredible. She is actually very sexy. Can’t really tell what her figure is like.

  29. She was also on Taboo and it explains why she did this. Before you all judge watch the episode with her and suddenly she is beautiful and you have a lot of respect for her. I see nothing wrong with her choice to do what she wants to her body.
