Believe It or Not!
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.
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.
