Beetlejuice Costume Guide: How to dress like Beetlejuice for Halloween and Cosplay


About Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice is a ghost that many people are not fond of, and it is easy to see why. He is known for pulling a series of nasty tricks as well as his plot of tricking Lydia into being his wife. If you are to describe Beetlejuice with words, they would likely be self-centered, horrible, and crude. Because of his habit of formulating a couple of things here and there, the history of Beetlejuice is not well known. However, there are stories that he graduated from Harvard Business School and he managed to survive through the black plague.

Nevertheless, and unhidden part of his history is that he was once working with Juno, as an assistant. Due to his troublesome nature, he could not hold on to that possible for long, and he left the job to do his own thing. In a bid to advertise himself, Beetlejuice puts up flies and things like that all around. The Maitlands ended up seeing one of these and decided to hire him. His hiring process is also pretty simple, as all they had to do was to say his name 3 times. Upon saying his name 3 times, he would show up and wreck a lot of havoc. Fortunately, you can get rid of him quickly by just saying his name three times again.

Better known as Beetlejuice, this mischievous and trickster ghost was originally known as Betelgeuse. Beetlejuice is the key antagonist of his live-action movie. In addition to being a perverted and rude ghost, he also gets a bit crazy sometimes. He also enjoys scaring people out of their pants and pulling pranks on them. He is a corpse that feeds on insects such as flies and beetles. Beetlejuice is also known to be very selfish, his major aim in the movie was to lift his curse, and he would do anything to achieve that.
