Jack Skellington and Sally Nightmare Before Christmas Costume
Mom and Daughter as Jack Skellington and Sally
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Alexis, the 'Jack Skellington and Sally Nightmare Before Christmas' costume creator:
My 5 year old daughter, Athena, is Jack Skellington and I am Sally. I made the Jack head out of paper Mache and a balloon with paint and see through black mesh. Her clothing was store bought black jacket and pants and I used white liquid chalk pens to make the pin stripes. Her hands are black knit gloves with pipe cleaners sown on. And her tie is a sheet of stiff felt with liquid white chalk lines.
For my Sally costume I took an old brown dress and stitched on various patches of fabric. I used pale blue stockings for my legs and arms and used permanent marker for the stitches. Black booties and layered leg warmers, a fabulous wig, and makeup.
The reactions were amazing! Strangers asked to take pictures with us. My daughter was beaming!
