I made both of these homemade Beetlejuice and Lydia couple costumes… a lot of of material… and a lot of time. They were so fun to make. The day of Halloween usually starts really early in the make up chair for everyone and ends like eight hours later. Halloween is taken very serious and so are the costumes I make. I figure if I can’t go all out, I choose another costume I can go all out for. If I can’t do the original costume justice, I just move on to another idea.
I’m very resourceful when I made these. I died the hoop-slip… went to Los Angeles and bought a ton of material. Beetlejuice’s costume started from a womans’ pant suit, and I tailored it. I made the wig from scratch for Beetlejuice and I also made the bangs for Lydia… I didn’t have bangs when I was Lydia for Halloween. Ironically, I had them cut 3 days later :”) I also made the bouquet out of left over material and the shoes Beetlejuice is wearing were bought from a thrift store and painted white. Thanks for the consideration.
