Coolest Homemade Lydia And Beetlejuice Wedding Costume 12
Homemade Lydia And Beetlejuice Wedding Costume
My Boyfriend and I on our first Halloween! It cost us an arm and a leg to end up making this Homemade Lydia And Beetlejuice Wedding Costume as we didn't even think of it or start them till a few days before.
Since we had so little time eBay was out. I looked everywhere for a red dress and it was impossible to find. What I ended up finding was a white lace dress. First we tried to dye it red but parts of it just ended up pink. I went to the craft store and picked up some floral fabric spray paint and gave the dress a healthy dose of red. It didn't smell as bad as real spray paint and was very flexible.
I made the veil out of just red tule pinned into my hair which was sprayed black with Bumble & Bumble spray powder (normally dark brown is my color). My bangs were sprayed to points like Lydias. Fake flowers, red fishnets, red lace gloves all purchased from a thrift store. Red shoes and my outfit was complete.
My boyfriend searched everywhere as well for a burgundy suit. Finally he found one at a thrift store on the other end of town and it was priced at (geeze) $100. But he bought it anyways. He got the frilly shirt from a vintage resale shop and white slip on loafers from some shoe store. I sprayed his hair and teased it and applied baby powder and then white Bumble and Bumble hair powder.
He still wears those shoes and even wore them to our own wedding last month!

Homemade Beetlejuice and Lydia Couple Costume
We decided to go as a Homemade Beetlejuice and Lydia Couple Costume one year- which I was very excited about. At that time, there were no Beetlejuice pre-packaged outfits or wigs which is fine with me because I love to make my own!
For Beetlejuice, we bought a black suite from Goodwill, taped off lines with duct tape, and spray painted white stripes on it. He wore a white shirt, a black tie, and work boots (with the pants tucked in) to complete outfit. For the wig, we purchased an "old man" wig that had partially balding gray wild hair. I painted the bald skin part with some white craft paint to look like his skin and sponge painted some green "mold" along the edges. I used waterbase craft paint for his make up and black eye shadow for the black around his eyes. Don't forget the green sponge paint to make the mold!
For Lydia, I wore plenty of black. I am blonde, so I bought black hair spray and make my hair a lovey shade of black. I then "pointed" my bangs to match her hair and- voila... you got Lydia!
I made the entire Homemade Beetlejuice Halloween Costume. I bought a suit jacket, a tie and some khaki pants at the thrift store. I taped stripes on the jacket and pants to paint my stripes. I had to section it off so that the paint wouldn't smear. I painted my tie black, and already had a white dress shirt. I bought a head piece from Dollar tree, painted it white, then smeared green face paint on it for the Beetlejuice effect.
I used some dark brown boots of mine and got some white hair color spray from Walmart to use on my very own hair. I painted the black circles around my eyes, and painted my face white. I trimmed my head and drained my eyes, mouth and nose with a green paint to give the rotting look. I also got to sport black fingernail polish, which I never have worn.
To make the look of Beetlejuice perfect, I used some black teeth wax and smiled beautifully. Haha! Take a look at the picture. It was a great costume, my family didn't even know it was me!
