Nightmare Before Christmas Family Costume
Jack, Sally, and Oogie
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Sarah, the 'Nightmare Before Christmas' costume creator:
This idea came from my youngest son, Dutch, requesting to be Oogie Boogie for Halloween. His costume was entirely handmade by my aunt, using burlap that was lined in satin and stuffed to high heavens. She included plastic bugs that were coming out of the seems on the sides and a spider dangling from his head (that is not very visible from these photos, sorry!) My oldest son Liam is dressed as Jack and his costume was made by altering a Wal-Mart 1920's gangster costume that we found on clearance the previous year. We just cut the jacket to look more like Jack's and I made a bat tie from a template that was available on Disney.com out of felt and white fabric paint. His makeup was done with regular white face paint and NYC brand black eyeshadow. I went as Sally and mine was really the most expensive... Most of Oogie's supplies my aunt already had on hand and as I mentioned earlier, Jack is just from a $2 clearance suit and I found a Santa hat at the dollar store to cover his hair. I bought my Sally dress from Hot Topic, added a wig, and then followed a makeup tutorial that I found on Pinterest. All in all, we received loads of compliments and the kids had a blast!
