This is me dressed in my Homemade Miss Argentina Costume from Beetlejuice.
For the costume, I made the cape out of metal wire for a neck piece and then sewed mesh red fabric with diamontees around the metal frame. I then pinned a meter of fabric to the frame and this was tied under my arms to hold in place. The dress was home made from a pattern.
It is impossible to find a cheap wig that will sit correctly so I bought a cheap wig that was the matching red/orange colour and cut the fringe out and pinned in to my hair. I put my hair in a bun and pinned in pieces from the wig to create a beehive look.
The makeup was blue green body paint that was applied all over. I took a dark blue eyeshadow and created a highlight on blush on the cheek bone. I then put dark and medium purple eyeshadow on my eyelids with shading. I then added a ring of purple eyeshadow under my eyes and dark blue in the corners and down the edges of the nose to create shadowing. I used light green eyeshadow as a shimmer.
The final effect was a Miss Argentina sash which was black letters that stuck onto a thick white ribbon and was pinned together.
