Chant his name 3 times, and make one of the most fun costumes come to life with this DIY Beetlejuice costume guide.

Now let’s get down to business of making the most thrilling undead costume for your next cosplay convention or Halloween event.

Beetlejuice is a creepy looking character, but also has a ton of personality that makes him a fun character to bring to life (pun intended!) through cosplay. He wears a distinctive black and white striped suit (which is dirtied up as if he just rose from a grave) and has a wild and scraggly green hairdo. He is also known for his plaid complexion which makes him appear like some sort of undead clown.

This is a relatively easy costume to pull off with a stop at a vintage clothing store and a little makeup razzle dazzle.

In this guide, I will show you which items to get to complete your Beetlejuice costume and also provide some resources to get your makeup and hair looking right for this outfit.

Beetlejuice wears a black tie, but any will do. Just try to keep it a solid color.


If you have long socks, use them and dirty them up with a little charcoal.


You can wear either black or white dress shoes to complete the Beetlejuice look.

About Beetlejuice

This unusual character is the brainchild of film director Tim Burton, who brought him to the big screen in 1988 with the help of Michael Keaton. The film grossed $78 million in the United States.

Beetlejuice is a ghost characterized by his dark humor and who wanders in the non-living world, that is to say in the world of the living according to the perspective of the dead, for which he is in charge of making bad jokes to the living who are not of your liking.

He is in charge of scaring a family that moves into the house of a deceased couple and in which they do not want the presence of the living in their home, so they hire the rude, dirty and ill-educated Beetlejuice to scare the living.
