“In the first movie, the three ladies disintegrated so I justified them having new clothes,” he explained. “But Billy went back into the grave, so my plan was to have him look as identical as possible to the original costume.”

Fortunately, Perez had access to the original outfit and ultimately found a similar fabric to match. The only issue? The stripes were too far apart. “I had my workroom take that fabric,” Perez said, “cut it up and re-sow it back together so they were one inch apart.”

I understand why no one ever bought it, but it was great for him.”
