Beetlejuice marries Lydia!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Josie, the 'Beetlejuice & Lydia' costume creator:
Beetlejuice & Lydia came to us as the ultimate Halloween couple! We love the movie and one night, Patrick walked in with the movie in hand and said "it's showtime!" and I knew this is what we should be!
Patrick is wearing the Beetlejuice costume that I made from a Salvation army suit that I hemmed the pant legs on. The shirt was an old dress shirt that I sewed extra ribbon on to make it look like a tuxedo shirt. Patrick grew his hair out for 8 weeks to get this look!! He has salt and pepper hair, so we added a little more white & painted the front green. For his makeup, after I put the white and black parts on his face, I took latex and REAL moss to add the special touches!
I am wearing Lydia's wedding dress. I made this from an old red bridesmaid dress and nearly an entire bolt of red tulle. I do not own a sewing machine so it took WEEKS for me to sew on all the extra layers around the dress. I got lucky and found a polkadot print for the neck part and then sewed on red satin ribbon to hold it on. The makeup was easier as she has pale makeup and dark eyes. Pointy bangs and a big red veil finished the look!
This costume was a lot of hard work, but so worth it. We had a blast!!
