Homemade Beetlejuice and Miss Argentina Couple Halloween Costume

First thing's first on this Homemade Beetlejuice and Miss Argentina Couple Halloween Costume, body paint. We used Ben Nye cream color turquoise for hers and black and white for his. 5 bucks each, enough to cover complete body and feel light weight for a night of fun!

The cape was the most time consuming. 2 yards of fabric similar to Miss Argentina's in the movie did the job, plus more. I bent two hangers together to form the frame, sewed a space for the wire to thread through and bunched the rest and glued/sewed to the neck piece of the frame with the rest hanging as a cape. Extra fabric came in handy to apply a jagged piece glued around the neckline to hide the visible glued area. With a sold-by-yard thick piece of white ribbon, I made the sash and hot glued the letters to it (the iron ons were too big or too small).

This wigs were cheap-os from Goodwill (still packaged) that were teased and styled and sprayed to make the color more similar to both characters.

The dress and Beetlejuice's clothes and shoes came directly from our closets! Only some mall purchases (false eyelashes, plaid shirt, blood for wrists, and bobby pins to style and secure the wig) were made to finish up the look.

The Beetlejuice and Lydia Costumes were put together by purchasing separate items at Goodwills and Thrift Stores around our area. The suit coat was the only part of the Beetlejuice costume that was from the men's department. The ruffled shirt was found in the women's department and was a size 2! I had to cut the sleeves off to make it fit. The pants were also found in the women's department and were just your normal everyday typical purple stretchy pants. You couldn't tell and they looked great. I found the shoes the day of our party at the Goodwill, also womens.

My wife bought a cheap red prom dress off of Ebay and separately bought red tulle off Ebay and sewed it on the dress to give it the ruffled effect. She also used the leftover tulle to create her sleeves (seen in photo) and veil. To create the veil she bought a hair pick found at any big box store (Wal-Mart, Target, etc.) and hot glued it onto the tulle which created an instant veil!

We both did our own makeup and won scariest costume at our party!

Our homemade Beetlejuice Halloween costumes were made from old clothes in our closet. Beetlejuice wig was found from a garage sale in my neighborhood and I had to paint it with some dark color to get the right Beetlejuice hair color.

My wife had this shirt from a party in her job. Our faces were painted from a vegetal and water base paint. We decided to go out for Halloween to share time with our daughter and friends.

To us it's very important to spend time with our kids because they are the future of our nation and we have to teach them how important to share time with the family. Thank you.

I decided to create a homemade Beetlejuice costume for Halloween (I couldn't bring myself to buying the costume for $60). I took a black suit and used white duct tape to make the stripes. I got a pink shirt since I liked it in the animated series. For the makeup I paled my face added a 5 O'clock shadow, and used real moss. Overall I think this homemade Beetlejuice costume came out great.
