Maria Jose Cristerna is the famous 35-year-old Mexican vampire woman that has been garnering a great deal of attention over the past year or so because of her extreme look.
Her astonishing transformation has included tattoos, fangs, titanium horns, piercings and very long dreadlocks. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not commissioned her entire body in order to make body casts, which will be turned into life size urethane figures for Ripley’s various worldwide venues.
The former lawyer began her transformation at 17, after marrying an abusive husband. Her tattoos were initially in response to her past relationship and her desire to be a “warrior” for herself and her children.
