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

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

The original idea for this costume came from my daughter, whose favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas. She wanted to be Jack Skellington, so we went from there. My husband decided to be Oogie Boogie and I decided on Sally. My daughter's is black clothing with fabric paint and a felt bow tie. Mine was made with fat quarters and a lot of looking at pictures of Sally. I drew a rough idea of where I wanted each fabric and used a dress I own as a rough outline. My husband was made of burlap with black fabric in the eyes and mouth. I had him lay down on the burlap and roughly traced his body then added extra inches to make him look round like Oogie Boogie. The mask was about 2 yards of fabric. I first laid it over his head and traced how I wanted the face to look then stuffed the features with pipe cleaners wrapped in tape. Then I used him as a model and roughly sewed the shape and adjusted it as necessary. We stuffed the end of his mask to add definition. As finishing touches I added embroidery floss on the mouth and yarn on the sides of the costume and mask.
