Wedding gown DIY - Lydia Deetz

If you're looking for an awesome, wedding-related Halloween costume, look no further than your local thrift store. Crafty person Mizerella took an ugly, outdated wedding gown and sprayed it blood red to look like the childbride wedding gown from Beetlejuice.

You know what I mean:

She spray painted a gown with fabric paint, and then used red tulle (ahh, tulle: every bridesmaid's worst friend) to add a veil, and some texture to the dress.

I have personally used this type of paint. It's easy to work with, but the pump spray will give you some nasty hand cramps if you have to use it a lot.

Check out her results!

It looks a bit like a waitress uniform at a Mexican restaurant until...

Veil and creepy make-up!

This is a great craft. I'll bet it could be done in a few days if you're looking for a gotta-have-it costume before Monday. Maybe I'll do this next year?

Happy Spooky Weekend!



  1. I always loved Lydia's red wedding gown! B-E-A-U-tiful!

  2. Yay! It's creepy, of course, that Beetlejuice tried to force a CHILD to marry him, but at least she got that gorgeous gown out of it!
