La Dama Del Silencio

oh gosh, so today is A and J's big wrestling dress up party. And I still have no clue what to wear! Turns out I have way more brown cotton than glittery spandex in my wardrobe- actually I have no glittery spandex. ok, so a kensington shopping trip is in order.

ok, lucha libre is the way to go I think. check out La Dama Del Silencio

oh my god, look at La Dama Del Silencio's biography, I really think it is real, they even have a mug shot!:

Juana Barraza was a serial killer in Mexico City. She'd pretend to be a social worker to gain entry to homes, choke out the victim with an object, and steal from their houses after their death. Barraza was a minor indepedent wrestlers as “La Dama del Silencio” (The Lady of the silence) and wrestled as a ruda. Barraza's murders had nothing to do with lucha libre and she was no longer wrestling when she was caught, but she's often portrayed as a murdering wrestler.
Barraza was arrested on January 25, 2006 for the murder of Ana MarĂ­a de los Reyes Alfaro, a 89 year old woman, and was subsequently connected to murdering 10 other women. The nickname "La Mataviejitas" (The Older Women's Murderer) was how the police referred to Juana Barraza, before they caught her. It's not a name she used in the wring.

Here is the lucha libre wiktionary, it is awesome.
I also like this (former)WWF lady:

Lesson learned: In the world of wrestling, all roads lead to spandex

    I think I would like to see a combination of all of the wrestlers as your outfit: Shrunken club clothing from the 90's, that fantastic sequined jacket, a full on beard, and a HOGAN! head wrap.
