Homemade Miss Argentina from Beetlejuice Halloween Costume
This Homemade Miss Argentina from Beetlejuice Halloween Costume took me about a week and several trips to the fabric store but I LOVE how it came out, even though I have never really sewn before.
I used a pattern for a saloon girl dress, some shiny red stretch fabric, a sheer black overlay with purple sequins, black netting underneath and a black sequin ruffle trim, about 2.5 yards of each fabric. The cape was made with 6 guage red wire and about 2 yards of sheer sparkle red material. For the sash I used white satin and cut out sparkle foam letters with silver trim alone the edge of the sash. Even though it was a little over sized I thought the letters were very Beetlejuice-esque.
The makeup was Mehron brand grease sticks in green and blue mixed together with about two coats of setting powder and spray. The slit wrists were the disappointment of the costume as the glue stopped working about an hour after they were applied. Instead of painting my legs green, I found a pair of HUE tights in the color I needed which was called "Jersey".
I got many compliments though the night from people who got who I was, though two people asked if I was She Hulk, or if I was from Star Trek.
Took me about 2 showers to get all the green off but it was totally worth it!

We looked high and low for a Beetlejuice costume that wasn’t the usual Black and white striped suite, to no avail, so my boyfriend and I set about making our own Homemade Beetlejuice Costume. We decided to create the first Beetlejuice when he first appears to the dead couple.
Firstly the wig. The usual Beetlejuice wigs are too big, there’s always too much hair, so we found one online which just needed scruffing up and sprayed the edge of the wig with green hairspray. To create the balding forehead we used a bald cap which we covered in white face paint as with my boyfriends face. The edges again we filled in with green face paint like the moss on Beetlejuice.
I painted the eyes with purple face paint and black which I also put on the eyebrows to create the arch like Michael Keating’s.
My boyfriend let his stubble grow for a few days which also added to the character. The shirt the trench coat and the teeth were all purchased online.
I think the outcome was great and it didn’t cost more than 30.00 GBP for the whole lot!
I didn't want to do your ordinary Beetlejuice so I chose the scene in the movie where he spikes Gena Davis.
I bought moss from an art store along with spirit gum and skin latex to apply my prosthetic. The clothes all came from shopping at numerous thrift stores, I couldn't seem to find the putor khaki-ish colored trench he wore, so I had to settle for a black coat.
Then I had to figure out how to get the spike affect. I ended up buying a 20 dollar gladiator armour piece for my chest and back, some pirate swords, a box cutter and a hot glue gun. The hardest part of this Homemade Beetlejuice Adult Costume? Getting the clothes on!
