On the dusty and sandy planet of Saturn, sub-subterranean sandworms live a mysterious life. These sandworms are large and snake-like monsters with four eyes and two mouths and lots of really sharp teeth. In Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, it seems like they will eat pretty any everything alive they come in contact with, including Barbara and Adam. After the duo avoids the sandworm after stumbling through a door and onto Saturn, later on, Barabara hops on one, only to help it guide its way to eating Beetleguese himself! These gross creatures are a fan favorite, and they’re definitely creepy looking creatures.
Their beady red eyes and sharp teeth are their most prominent features, and now you can rock those features too! Wholesale Halloween Costumes teamed up with our friend Caitlyn Kreklewich to put together this incredible makeup tutorial! Follow along step by step to transform yourself from a human person into a slithering, sandy, hungry sandworm! Just make sure you don’t say “Beetlejuice” three times, or we’ll really have some problems.
Lay down the Sandworm’s body with white paint, around the neck and over the shoulder onto the chest.
The face will sit on the center of the chest.
Start adding the details to the face- pink lips, green lips and a black eye on the small inner head.
With a thin brush add tons of tiny teeth to the smaller mouth.
With a thicker brush add bigger more spaced out teeth to the larger mouth.
Add a large red eye, then give it a shadow and some under eye wrinkles.
Give the black eye an almond-shaped outline and also add a few under eye wrinkles.
Paint red freckles randomly about the small heads upper snout.
Outline the teeth of the larger mouth with a very thin black line.
Paint two black stripes across each tooth of the larger mouth.
Outline the green lip of the larger mouth with a thin black line.
Outline the body with a black line.
Begin painting the banded stripes across the body, starting at the snout and working your way down the body.
Paint on the Sandworm’s big dorsal fin- it’s okay if it overlaps the other part of the body around the neck.
Finish the banding on the body around the neck.
Using a fluffy brush and black eyeshadow, lay down a drop shadow under all of the Sandworm’s body parts.
Grab a large brush to finish the body paint.
Add a thin line to the “v-neck” of the body paint to add separation.
