Lydia Deetz Beetlejuice Costume

Lydia Deetz Beetlejuice Costume

About two weeks ago, I put it to Facebook in this post that I would dress up everyday in costume for the month of October if I received 100 likes. Thanks to the support of all of you I reached 100 likes – and then some! So today starts my month-long Halloween costume challenge, and I bring to you, Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice.

Lydia, played by Winona Ryder in the film, is a moody, angsty goth who feels isolated from the world. She is your classic Tim Burton character who is both strange and appealing. This super-easy homemade costume is perfect for Halloween and only requires a few key items to achieve:

  • A black on black on black outfit
  • Super pale make-up – including wearing concealer on your lips – highlighted by dark circles around your eyes
  • A spiky fringe
  • A camera
  • A deflated sense of the world around you

Tune back into the blog tomorrow, and for the rest of the month, and be let me inspire you to create your costume this year for Halloween.
