Lydia Deetz Costume by The-Cosplay-Scion Lydia Deetz Costume by The-Cosplay-Scion
So this is my finished Lydia Deetz Halloween costume from the Beetlejuice cartoon. It’s my own adaptation of the costume. I figured if I made it exactly as it is in the cartoon it would just look ridiculous on a person my height.

The costume, make up and wig are by me.
This photo was taken by Sai-Kit Chu at MTAC (March Toronto Anime Convention)

More information and the rest of this photoshoot can be found on my website www.CosplayScion.com

This costume is really beautiful !! I have a party in a few weeks and I would like to be Lydia and your costume is the most beautiful!
Do you remember the measures you took approximately ? I only have 2 weeks to make it !

Thank you!

I'm terribly sorry, It was so long ago I really can't remember exactly what I did. The cape is basically a big square with the two corners at the arms rounded off though!

Any way you'd post a diy on that cape? I'm trying to make one for myself and I can't find a pattern

Hmm I can try, I am planning on remaking it soon so I can likely make one as I am doing it. Basically I just made it up as I was going along though :S

Maybe you can just make a little movie or take some pictures. Just to give a idea of how to do it. It could be easier for you and usefull for us ! ;)

What did you use for the spiderweb? I was wondering because I am making a Lydia costume for a party this year.

The spiderwebs are actually done with a really really thin satin stitch done on machine

I went as Lydia twice in Halloween. She is probably my favourite character to be! =D. I'm thinking of doing it again this year, but better xD.
LOVE the costume, specially the red spider poncho. My mum tried to sow it, but she ended up drawing the lines, so it didn't look that good...=( Oh well, we'll see this year hehe
