Lydia Deetz Spiderweb poncho by AmmieChan Lydia Deetz Spiderweb poncho by AmmieChan
Though I know I should be wary,
Still I venture someplace scary, 
Ghostly haunting I turn loose,
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!!!

This is a costume I have been meaning to make for years! I had one once when I was a kid, made by my grandmother. I later attempted at making one before I could sew. Finally, I have gotten around to making one that I can be truly happy with! The poncho is made of a matte red satin. The vertical spider webs are twill tape sewn on, the horizontal ones are painted on with acrylic paint. I made a black bodysuit to wear underneath as well. The wig is the same one as my wedding Lydia costume, only styled with the 3 curls at the top of the hairband. The hairband is craft foam striped with the same purple cotton used to line the poncho. The Sandworm was made of scrap fleece sewn together and stuffed with fiber fill.

It was such a great cartoon! I noticed Amazon has it exclusive on DVD, the entire series. This is the third attempt at this costume. My first was one my grandmother made for me when I was a kid. I later tried to make it when I had no sewing knowledge lol. I'm glad I could finally make it to my liking after all these years lol.
Beetlejuice is one of my favourite movies of all time :)
