This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Lindsey, the 'Adam and Barbara Maitland' costume creator:

Every year our friends throw an over-the-top Halloween party and we wanted to step up our game in the costume department. So my boyfriend, Sam, and I decided to go as the Maitlands from Beetlejuice. The masks took about a month to make as we worked on them a little after work each day. We built the masks from mostly paper mache, masking tape, foam and chicken wire. The teeth of my mask are clay and the tongue is made of carved painted styrofoam. I used a black plastic mask from a Halloween store for the inside portion. I bought the dress and shirt online and picked up the wig at a Halloween store. Sam attached the inside head piece from a hard hat to the inside of my mask so I could wear it. I safety-pinned the wig to that piece so it was easy to put on and take off. Sam cut out the eyes of his mask and glued see-through black fabric to them so he could see. I used the same fabric in the middle part of my mask. The total cost for both costumes was about $100. It came together much nicer than I could have imagined!

Awesome costume!!!! They also had the Handbook for the Recently Deceased and it looked exactly like the one from the movie! This costume should win hands down. The details were so spot on it was amazing.
