Graveyard Beetlejuice Costume by davidbigler Graveyard Beetlejuice Costume by davidbigler
Happy Halloween! My 'ghost with the most' costume of Graveyard Beetlejuice! Usually, whenever people choose Beetlejuice for a costume, they make the white and black striped version. But I don't remember seeing a graveyard Beetlejuice, so that's what I chose for this year's costume!

Photo reference here:

Special thanks to :icontheanimeblog: for her wonderful advice regarding fabric-related questions and for finding the trenchcoat (and for the wig advice)!

Reference: Screenshots galore from the graveyard scene of the movie

Media:
Clothes - All 'like new' clothes that I custom aged by paint, tearing, etc.
Hat - Cheap police officer's costume hat that I customized
Head/hands - customized white wig, bald cap, face makeup, and acrylic paint

Wow! This is great! :) The costume is so well made!
I have wanted to do Betelgeuse's costume myself too but my body shape is bad for this character 8(

Dear god almighty if you'd be doing the smile yet I think I may have mistaken this for an actual picture of the actor goofing around between takes. You sir are SPOT ON! I salute you.

Wow thanks! I wish my costume had better photo documentation. Somehow, I only snagged a few pics that year! :(

Such a good job. I recently ordered the striped-suit costume off Amazon and I couldn't be anymore displeased. I'm thinking about trying for graveyard Beetlejuice now lol.

I couldn't find the right jacket for it :(. I ended up going as classic B.J. Custom suit and all:

i like how you added so much detail even the moss on his suit. ^__^it gets boring with the ones you see at stores with the stripes.

Thank you so much! I was totally tired of seeing the same old crappy striped kits with the junky wig. So I made mine from scratch. It was a ton of fun!

Absolutely amazing! I don't know where to start, the wig is great. You really did a great job creating his dirty blond hair, (what did you use?) and just the overall dirtyness is just...wow. Love it.

freaking awesome costume I did a beetlejuice myself by had trouble with the most sticking and with the hair standing up like your did any pointers.

Thanks! I painted the hair lightly with spray paint, which made it stiffer. To style, I used 'Spike It Cement' by Beyond the Zone haircare products: [link]

I also used some really strong hairspray, and lots of tweaking! ^_^

I bet you did! there's something strangely empowering about dressing up as an awesome dead guy, I should know, I permanently look like Betty Juice from the cartoon series! :XD:

You did a great job! :D

Wow, the detail is amazing! *o* <3 So awesome, I love this outfit so much~

Crazily enough, I was Lydia this year... xD From the cartoon, though. I was hoping I'd run into a Beetlejuice just so I could go up to him and say, "Hey! I've been looking for you!" xDD Oh goodness that would've been hilarious~

Really well done!

Thanks! At first, I was a little hesitant because I thought people might only recognize the stripey one...but it wasn't a problem thanks to the hair and makeup! :)
