This homemade costume for families entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Melissa, the 'Beetlejuice Family' costume creator:

Mr. Mainland - materials are an old baseball hat, wire coat hangers, duct tape,, acrylic paint, newspaper, modpodge.
Use baseball hat as the base, mold wire coat hangers to shape the mask, duct tape molded hangers to baseball hat and wrap hangers and all of the hat with duct tape to secure. Ball up newspaper to fill in the mask and duct tape to secure. Rip pieces of newspaper and use midge podge to wet both sides of newspaper and cover mask. Allow to dry completely and paint

Mrs Maitland - materials and construction same as above. I used modeling clay to make the teeth and glue on with liquid nails. I used cardboard to shape the tongue and fill in with newspaper. Use styrofoam balls as the eyes and attach to mask with liquid nails.

Harry the little Head Hunter - duct tape, pvc pipes to secure, duct tape large sponges to top pipe for shoulders. Bought a cheap black Halloween dress from goodwill that is easy to see through and use that under the shirt to be able to see. I used a base cardboard skull from Michaels and fancied it up....I attached it to a baseball hat (backwards) so the head can move)

Beetlejuice - a old black suit from when his older brother was in a wedding, sewed white stripes, used white hair spray paint with a LOT of hair spray and black/white makeup to finish
