This is me as Miss Argentina and Beatlejuice (my husband). My husband's homemade Beatlejuice costume was all pieced together. Used an old suede suit found at a thrift store, found a wig at a costume store that was cut to this style. Used costume paint and moss for his face. Green teeth and paint to make them look gross. Spray-painted the suit with green and white paint for a dirty effect.
For my homemade Argentina costume, I used green acrylic paint from the hobby store. Handmade my dress with some cheap sequin fabric. Got my sash from a floral store and used boating/mailbox lettering for the name. Ordered my wig off the web. Cape was a vampire cape cut the length off and used wire to make the collar stand up. Sewed on a shiny orange fabric over the top of the cape. I attached the cape around my arms using old clear straps from a shirt.
This was a hit. WE won 1st place in the contest. $100 prize

I went to the Thrift store and found an old women's suit in white. Bought some black spray paint and masking tape and taped 2.5 inches on the pieces that you see on the suit that remained white. When it dries you take off the tape and you get the stripes.
Get an old mens or kids white collar shirt and a black tie. Tease your hair with a comb and hair spray it, to get that crazy look. Then spray paint it with green washable green color. Dump some baby powder in hair so when you walk or jump, it will look like dust comes out of your hair.
You buy cream makeup at the party store. Green and white and dark purple eye shadow for the dark eye look.
