Beetlejuice and Lydia

Oct 30, 2018
Article Image

Lydias dress started as a used red waist slip and red T-shirt.much  Tulle and taffeta were built around it to create Lydia’s iconic red wedding dress in Beetlejuice; a handmaid veil put it all together. The undead Beetlejuice himself started out as a thrift store black suit. All stripes were taped off and hand painted with textile paint. His wig started as a wig cap; acrylic yarn was cut in small strips , threads were pulled out by hand to expose the “ fluffy “
part of the yarn. Each hair plug was individually glued on. This took 2 weeks. The wig was brushed out, hair sprayed, and dirtied with paint and moss. I also personally applied Beetlejuices makeup. Both outfits are 85% upcycled and took 1 month to create both outfits. I think I should win because of the effort to make these eco friendly and upcycled and the creativity and effort !
