Judy Skellington Costume

Judy Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas

Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for girls entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Michele, the 'Judy Skellington' costume creator:

My Daughter Willow came across this wonderful character that someone had come up with from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. Judy is the eldest child of Jack Skellington and Sally so we created this costume completely from drawings we found online of the character.

To make this costume I bought a long auburn wig at Goodwill. I bought a $1 roll of glittery black wired floral ribbon and made a large bow which I hot glued onto an old black headband. The face was basic black and white face paint from Snazaroo . The dress is grey jersey I cut the fabric into a rough spiderweb shape big enough to fit around her waist and then stitched it over top of one of her skirts with shorts underneath them. The blazer is a plain black blazer that I stretched the grey Jersey material over and hot glued it down. I drew Black spiderweb designs over top and bottom. She wore a plain white tshirt under the jacket with a black strecth bowtie that I hot glued a dollar store plastic spider on. The pothole stockings were mine and the boots were hers. Total cost roughly $5 new material. Everything else we already had and simply altered for the Character.
Total time invested about 3 days of cutting -stitching-gluing.
