Every year we do a costume party for kids and adults and every year we have to come up with couple costumes. This year we chose Beetlejuice and Lydia the wedding scene. I found a old prom dress at the thrift store for four dollars and had to add to it. The dress was strapless and I had to get taffeta, (which was seven dollars), to add to the dress and got ribbon to make the collar. I made the veil with the left over taffeta and bought the gloves they were seven dollars.I bought roses at the local hobby lobby with some clearance ribbon and I spent nine dollars.
My total outfit cost was twenty seven dollars. I got his coat from a yard sale for three dollars and dyed some white linen pants that bought for five dollars. The white shoes were from ebay. I had to buy the wig off the internet. We took the picture in the graveyard, I thought that was fitting. If you could zoom in Beetlejuice is holding a severed finger with a ring. She meant nothing to him.

Homemade Miss Argentina from Beetlejuice Costume
If you've seen Beetlejuice then you will recognize Miss Argentina as the receptionist from the recently Deceased office. I made the Homemade Miss Argentina from Beetlejuice Costume myself, the wig was bought online and styled to look like Miss Argentina's, the cape was made with a piece of heavy duty garden wire, the material was purchased online as was the dress.
I had the sash printed by a printers shop that specialized in printing clothing. The green body paint was purchased online as was the black and Lilac face paint. The shoes were from a shop but very cheap as were the tights.
The slit wrists were made by using face putty, once the putty was warmed it becomes quite sticky so I pushed the rolled sausage shape onto my wrists then carefully pushed a matchstick down to create the slit. I then pasted latex glue to hold them on and covered the putty with green body paint and then filled in the slit with red.
We had just got back from Universal Studios, and had seen the Beetlejuice show -when my son was asked to be in homecoming for his Peewee football team. So we had to buy a suit for that knowing he would probably never wear the suit again before he grew out of it. I was going through our Universal Studios pictures and had a great idea to use the suit he wore in homecoming to paint up for a Homemade Beetlejuice Halloween Costume.
It was just a black suit with painted on white stripes, and old wig we painted a grayish color, and we painted his face up. We thought it was a pretty good costume.
