I decided to be Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice for Halloween! I've got a black wig with a big back combed ponytail and pointy bangs, and a camera! Naturally I had to watch Beetlejuice for reference, and naturally I had to do some drawings with the brush pen. I'm doing an upcoming project all in brush pen, so I'm attempting to get real goodsy at it.
Beetlejuice is one of the movies that was in heavy rotation in the VCR when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure I didn't understand most of what was going on, as is the case with most movies watched in childhood. There's so much cool looking stuff in the movie though, you kinda don't need to 'get it' to appreciate it.
Winona doesn't look too great in the movie, actually. I know she's supposed to look all death-y but she really does. I actually cut my bangs like Lydia's when I was a teenager, all pointy...bold!
I love Catherine O'Hara. She's one of the few actresses that I think I'd really truly freak out about if I were to run into her in person. She's perfectly insane in the movie. I got a pretty decent Gina Davis over there, too.
I was a big fan of the Beetlejuice cartoon, too, even though it has barely anything in common with the movie. By the way, don't even bother google image searching the cartoon unless you want to see a LOT of fan art with the potential to hurt your feelings. Learn from my mistake.
...and then I watched Ghost Hunters!
Happy Halloween, Halloweenies!
