This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Amanda, the 'Jack Skellington' costume creator:

This is my 8 year old son Auston. One of our favorite movies is The Nightmare before Christmas. I decided to tackle making this by myself and managed to pull it off. We went to Value Village and bought a plain black jacket and pants, I got the white fabric markers and did all the lines myself. I was going to make the bowtie but found one pretty cheep at a Halloween store. Found the gloves as well. I watched a few videos on how to do the makeup and just went for it not thinking it would turn out that well, I am very happy with the results. Now, what Jack isn't complete without Zero by his side. My son and I collected all sorts on materials for Zero and I just started by using a foam ball and a foam cone and alot of hot glue. Stuck a few wooden dowels in the back to give it body then covered with fabric and gave it a ghost effect. Used black stones for eyes and a clown nose that lights up. Made the ears using wire and hot glue so I could shape the ears. Hung it with fishing line and connected to wood sticks like a puppet. All in all my most favorite costume I have done for him.
