This election has been a real horrorshow, and East Village costume store Halloween Adventure has made the most of it with some amazing Trump-Clinton window displays. Their latest is really a doozy. Perhaps inspired by the Tim Burton theme bar nearby, they’ve put everyone’s favorite human orange alert into the netherworld waiting room from Beetlejuice.
Fitting, for sure. Like Betelgeuse (aka Beetlejuice), Drumpf (aka Trump) is a boorish pest who likes to call people a “bunch of losers,” and is possibly a walking deadman if his campaign is as close to imploding as it seems. (Come to think of it, it might be a blessing if someone voodoo-shrinks that giant head of his. “This might be a good look for me,” indeed). And like Beetlejuice, many believe Trump is only here because the media said his name one too many times.
So what if Beetle’s unkempt hair reminds us more of Bernie Sanders– this is still a pretty spot-on die-o-rama, complete with Lydia’s “Handbook For the Recently Diseased, er, Deceased.” In fact, it’s so good your head will spin:
Oh, and look! There’s Melania as Lydia, Beetlejuice’s reluctant, grossed-out bride. Hey, it’s not that much of a stretch: Winona Ryder got caught shoplifting at Saks just like Melania got busted lifting Michelle’s lines.
