Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

Alex and I had a costume party that we went to last weekend.  Beetlejuice is one of Alex’s all time favorite movies.  I would say I have watched it about as many times as we have watched Dumb and Dumber!  At first we thought about going as Lloyd and Harry, but the costumes were ridiculously expensive.  We decided that it would be fun to dress up like Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz.  Originally, I was planning on wearing black and carrying around a camera.  I figured that it would be easy to find a suit jacket to duct tape into a Beetlejuice costume.  We decided on the wedding scene.  I had an old bridesmaid dress hanging in the closet that was red.  I just added some tool and made a veil and had an instant red wedding dress!  I set off to hit up some thrift shops and hit gold in the first store I went to! I found his suit jacket at Goodwill for $5.99 and the pants for $0.99!  The pants were HUGE but I told him they were $0.99 and they were the perfect color so grab a belt!  We had a fun night!

I just pinned and gathered all the way around and sewed it by hand.  I ended up doing three rows across then added some around the skirt draping down in strips.
