This homemade costume for groups entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Ian, the 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' costume creator:

I am wearing the jack skellington costume. We got the idea because the nightmare beforechristmas movie is our favorite but we never see anyone make the blown up Santa jack spelling ton version. I am on drywall stilts covered with black vinyl so they are disguised as Santa boots. The mask is made out of no do resin covered in paper-clay and then burned to give it charred effects. The arms are pex and pic pipes that extend 3 feet past my hands. They are articulated fingers using 60lb fish line, rubber tubing cut in half and then covered in paper-clay to be shaped like bones. The torn fabric is ripped, burned, and stained with black wood stain to look like jack was shot out of the sky. The beard was made from 3 Santa hats I just told the frindge off and hot glued them together. Over all I was about 9.5 feet tall and had great mobility to walk through crowds, on the dance floor and have a great time.

Oogie boogie is warn by my brother. His costume is made from burlap purchased at Home Depot. We took news paper and tape and made a form of his face. We put large staples to hold the burlap in place and then sprayed it with two cans of clear shellac. The then lined the eyes and inside with black fabric and stuffed him with pillow fluff.

My mother is the mayor. Her mask is made from a plastic construction cone that we painted. The brim and toot of her hat is a piece of cardboard and a wrapping paper tube covered in paper mâché and painted black. The suit is just an oversized Yuit stuffed with pillow fluff.
