Beetlejuices’ magicians assistant (cut in half) in the afterlife waiting room

Nov 05, 2018

We love the movie beetlejuice and since every year i make my niece (7yrs) and nephews (4 yrs)  costumes for halloween, she asked me to make it. This is my nieces 5th year with a diy costume. I basically made the couch frame using pvc pipe and connectors. I then got plenty cardboard boxes and taped it to the pvc pipe creating the couch. I also added batting to make it look soft and more realistic. I glued that batting with a glue spray can. I bought the brown fabric at walmart and my mother helped me see it and once complete, i used the same glue spray to adhere it to the cardboard. I made a hole on the right side so my niece can go under and thru the hole. I couldnt find legs and the ones i did find were too expensive so i found 2 arms small enough for her frame. Painted them and zip tied them to the couch. Her outfit was sewed bu my mother from some nice red shiny fabric. I bought the book at a goodwill and printed out the cover at a library and just glued it. I attached castor wheels to the bottom of the pvc pile and she was able to more/walk freely. Not sure the cost.
