hopefully this isn't too late, but I did mia wallace as a last minute costume a couple years ago.

I made a fake syringe out of foam sheets and hot glue leaving the front part hollow.  Then cut up a coat hanger and bent it to a 90 degree angle.  I ace bandaged the longer part to my stomach and then i slipped the fake syringe onto the pokie outie part.  I don't think i have a picture of the contraption, but i do have a picture of the costume. You can see the wire, but it worked well enough to win a contest.

Thanks for the advice!  I ended up just using packaging tape because the super glue hurt my skin...the fake blood covered it and you could hardly tell.  I won the contest however at work and pocketed $50!  I couldn't walk three feet without someone stopping me, and I'm on countless strangers' cell phone cameras!
