|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Melissa, the 'Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas' costume creator:
I am wearing the costume myself. All fabric for the dress was bought from Jo-ann's fabric store and sewed by hand by myself and a friend. It was stitched with details by yarn, felt and Tulip fabric paint. The legs and arms were dyed with RIT Aqua fabric coloring onto white nylon tights purchased from Party City. After the coloring was complete, I drew the stitching on with black permanent marker. The wig was purchased through a 3rd party store from Amazon.com, and the face paint was purchased through Party City.
To achieve the look of Sally, I painted her eyes directly onto my face. When I closed my eyes, it gave the appearance of Sally's eyes wide open. I've sent a picture of my eyes opened and closed to show you this.
I have also sent a picture of myself with my handmade decoration of Jack Skellington on the hill in the graveyard. A scene directly from Tim Burton's film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
