The 1988 cult classic movie Beetlejuice has become a horror movie icon. In it the devious poltergeist takes on several comedic and often snarky looks. This particular costume is meant to mimic the famously popular shrunken head scene. It does this with beefed up cartoon-like shoulder pads, added to the maroon velour bodysuit.
This officially licensed Shrunken Head Beetlejuice costume is made from high-quality materials and fabrics like costume-grade polyester. It is perfectly styled to look perfectly replicate the shrunken head scene in the 1988 movie. It comes complete with the jumpsuit, overcoat, and a skull-cap wig that perfectly replicates the iconic hairstyle. However, any face makeup is entirely up to you.
My husband wore it to the office where they had a Tim Burton themed costume contest AND at a huge costume party at Dumbo House… so for 13 hours straight. Random people were taking his picture and giving him high-fives on the subway. He and the rest of his Team Beetlejuice won his office costume party!
