This homemade costume for families entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Barbara, the 'Nightmare Before Trick r Treat' costume creator:

We always enjoy Halloween. This year we decided that we would do Nightmare Before Christmas and our son would be Sam from Trick r Treat.

I did Oogie Boogie (my Husband, Troy) first, he is really just a large stuffed pillow from burlap. I sewed the arms on and put foot holes in the bottom. I also made shoe covers for my husband's shoes. The head was made from wire wrapped with paper for the eyebrows and wire wrapped with pipe insulation for the mouth. My husband did the painting on the face and we sprayed him with glow-in-the-dark paint.
The fatness came from balloons. I paid $10 for burlap and 10 for the paint.

My Sally costume was also easy just time consuming. I added a skirt to the bottom of a t-shirt. then I added scraps of material from my scrap pile. My legs were long underwear and my husband sprayed painted them while I was wearing them. Then he added the stitches. Not many men can say "I just sprayed my wife's legs and then stitched them up"!! The shirt for the arms just needed the stitching added. Troy did my makeup. This took about 1 1/2
hours. The wig, I made by adding yarn to a wig net one strand at a time.. This was by far the most time consuming part of all of our costumes. Sally cost me about $15.

Sam, from Trick r Treat 2 ( our son Ian). We used a large ball to form the head . I stitched the burlap and added the mouth, then used modge podge to harden over the ball. I formed 2 large buttons for his eyes out of air dry clay. Ian had to wear an altered bike helmet to give the head the movement required. I made his sleeper from a drawing from his other P.J,s.I made a fake sucker for him to carry.I had to order the fleece. Ian's costumes cost about $25
