Okay, so I know she plays a smaller part in the movie, but.... She is a MUST to be immortalized in the form of a costume...

This year, I Made/Put together the FABULOUS costume of "Miss Argentina" from the Movie Beetle Juice I think from the year 1988-89???

Anyways, I think if you've seen the Movie, YOU'LL KNOW who I am Talking about....

I made my Beauty Contestant "Miss Argentina" Sash using some Thick ribbon from the wedding section at JoAnn's and Iron on letters, My Lingerie "Dress-like" Purple frock, My Cape Out of Red Foam (Collar) and sewed a "Fire-like" pattern along with the Sheer Sparkly Material I found at JoAnn's... Okay, so, I didn't use a pattern, BUT, I paused the Movie JUST right on her Close-up to Fully re-create the Collared Cape!

I also found a raggedy old VAMPIRE Red  Wig in my closet, Cut the Bangs to size, and did an Up do with bobbi-pins and Full on Curls to perfect her look. It' took me like 1 1/2 Hours for that darn wig to do what I wanted... But, It FINALLY gave in!!!

Okay, So With out Further ado...

Here is MY entry...

Here's a FULL frontal, complete with All my Gear, and YES, That's Green Witch Face paint all over my upper half, and I used some old GREEN tights for my legs to be green, and some old Fishnets on top...


Okay, Now you can KINDA catch in Collar in Fire Design in this one...



And Finally, YES, I won the Costume contest at work!!! Woo-hoo!!!

Some people knew what I was, Others thought I was The Jolly Green Giant, or She Hulk!!  Grin Tee Hee!!!!


P.S. The Joker was awesome Too!!!!

Thanks for Looking at my entry!

P.S. Too, Thanks to my Hard worked entry, My Tub is still a little Green from the "WASH off"!
