poor pvc Beetlejuice suit... [Oct. 8th, 2010|10:11 pm]

About a decade ago, radcliffe helped me secure a pvc Beetlejuice-looking suit that was in a goth fashion show. It was worn at various conventions and Halloween, but hadn't seen the light of day in a couple years. While discussing costuming tonight, the subject came up and I pulled it out of the closet. PVC has an expiration date, which I've seen happen before but not with something of mine. The pvc is peeling from the backing, so the outfit is pretty much gone.

I'm pondering doing a Beetlejuice costume myself, either securing a cheap black suit from goodwill and spray painting the white stripes, or actually sewing a suit from striped fabric. I could get an already made suit, but I suspect it looks like a cheap costume and would rather do something more aesthetic. I've wanted to try sewing a suit for costume purposes, this may be a good starting point.

My hopes for next years zombie walk is zombie Beetlejuice, yes. I'll have to see if I can actually tease my hair up enough.
