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.

This is amazing! Love it how you put aside the typical black and white suit. Makes this a very unique BeetleJuice costume

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! ^_^

You're welcome! :D

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~

That's a great interpretation. "Beetlejuice! I haven't seen that for years" is exactly what i thought when i saw the thumbnail.

Really well done, and your right, not many people do beetlejuice other than the striped suit.
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! :)
