This was my first year making huge, movie quality costumes from scratch, and I think fully nailed it. This Beetlejuice family costume set off my obsession with going over the top and making these competitively. The costume also inspired me to start working towards a career in this field (albeit, unsuccessful so far).
Everything here is made from scratch from the ground up using paper mache, recycled, and repurposed materials. Anything that couldn’t be made was thrifted and altered.
I am a movie fanatic, and I love scary monsters with a comic twist, and any way to rope in my family is a huge plus! I’m Barbara, my husband is Adam, the 4 year old is Lydia, and my baby (at the time) , is Beetlejuice.
