I plan on being Miss Argentina, the blue-skinned, slit-wrist Afterlife Receptionist from Beetlejuice for Halloween. What free typeface should I use to print the sash?

I have a friend who works in an industrial factory who can print directly on fabric for me, but I need a font.

My other costume is Claudia Kishi from Babysitter's Club, but I don't need help from that, because I basically dress like her anyway.

Saddlebag. If that's too wide, Insane Rodeo.

I think I disagree with DarlingBri. The font on her sash doesn't have spurs, and both of those suggested do.
Here are my suggestions: Adelle, Compressor Slab Serif, Poster Slab, Foro Bold

Also i love the idea of this costume!

Any condensed slab would do. Of the above, Poster Slab is the only one that comes close.

Great costume! I'd go with FirstMateKate's suggestion of Poster Slab even though the capital S is little off, it's the only free one and will be a very good match.

I am baffled as to how none of you are seeing spurs. They are SO THERE.

There are no spurs, DarlingBri. Look at the IS in MISS. Look at the left side of the A.
