Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice Beetlejuice (2024)

The new trailer for the second Beetlejuice film released recently and is called Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, planned to release this fall of 2024. The film takes place in the future after the previous one we all know from 1988. Most of the cast is the same as the original, playing their original characters.

One of the characters returning is Lydia Deetz, played again by Winona Ryder. To dress like Lydia as we can see her in the trailer, wear a black coat over a maxi black skirt, black boots, and oversized black sunglasses. Add a black wig with bangs to create her iconic style with choppy bangs.

Charlotte Flax from Mermaids

Charlotte is a character from the 90s film Mermaids, and is played by Winona Ryder. Mermaids follows Charlotte who is tired of her mother Rachel moving her family every time she feels like it, and when she’s thinks they will finally settle down in Massachusetts, she realizes she is more like her mother than she thinks and they learn to grow and accept each other.

Charlotte in the beginning of the film is obsessed with living a religious lifestyle, different from her mother and therefore dresses very conservatively like her costume with a black dress, white lace collar, and always a black headband and cross necklace, or her yellow cardigan and gray pleated skirt. Later in the film when she becomes rebellious, she takes her mothers iconic pink retro dotted dress and tries to dress and act like her.

Veronica from Heathers

Veronica (played by Winona Ryder) is the main character of the high school-set dark comedy Heathers.  Veronica and JD were wreaking havoc on Westerburg High Schoo long before the film received the musical treatment.  Veronica wears a number of 80s-inspired outfits throughout the film.  Some of her most iconic include the tiered skirt and black crop top she wears in the woods before she realizes how dark JD’s plans truly are, the sweater and dress she dons at a convenience store, and her soot-stained outfit from the end of the film, which includes the same grey sweater she wears in the woods, a blue shirt, and checkered skirt.  No matter what outfit Veronica’s wearing, a pair of dark tights finish the look in true 80s fashion.

Elsa van Helsing from Frankenweenie

Elsa van Helsing from Frankenweenie

In Tim Burton’s universe, Winona Ryder has a way of bringing to life girls that are special mix of sweet and sharp. Elsa van Helsing is no exception. She cares deeply for the people in her life but she’s not exactly a fan of the fluff and frippery that others seem to like.

Elsa’s appearance is a great example of this. She wears her black hair up in long pigtails and opts for a high-neck shirt, a dark pinafore dress, grey tights, and black shoes. You can also use grey face paint if you want to go for the “stepped out of a black and white movie” look. You can also use dusky makeup colors to create a similar look without going for full-face coverage. And of course you’ll want a stuffed poodle to play the part of your very own Persephone

Kim from Edward Scissorhands

Kim Boggs from Edward Scissorhands

Kim Boggs (Winona Ryder) is the beautiful and innocent daughter of the Avon lady Peg in Edward Scissorhands. Her character falls in love with the estranged Edward Scissorhands (played by Johnny Depp) who’s gentle nature changes her views on love and what is right. Set in a 1960’s like-setting, Her outfits are straight out of the past. Two outfits of hers that are most memorable are her camping clothes she meets Edward in, and the significant white dress she wears at the end of the movie. Her makeup is fair and natural, consisting of rose colored lips and bright eyeshadow.

Joyce Byers

Joyce Byers (portrayed by Winona Ryder) is a main character on Stranger Things. The poor single mother of Will and Jonathan Byers, she works as a retail clerk and relies on help from her eldest to make ends meet. After Will’s disappearance, she was certain that he was communicating with her through the lights in the house. Despite everyone treating her like she was having a mental breakdown, she refused to believe that he was dead. Through co-operation with Police Chief Hopper and Will’s friends, she eventually uncovered the circumstances of her son’s disappearance and entered The Upside Down to save him.

Lydia Deetz

Lydia Deetz’s style is all but strange and unusual. She keeps it simple by dressing in all black and minimal make up. The hardest part to replicate may actually be her bangs. We can’t guarantee this look will attract a bio-exorcist but you can always try saying his name three times.
