My friend Robert decided in August he wanted to be oogie boogie from the nightmare before Christmas, and I am the only friend he has that is capable of making anything...so I got suckered into making it. This was a very heavy costume to sew, and I am super glad just to be done with it.

It's mostly made of burlap. I stuffed it using polyester fill and lined it with muslin and then hand sewed the front and back together with twine. For the mask I used wire to form the eyes and mouth and then sewed some mesh on the inside. In case you're wondering how he gets into the suit I sewed a zipper up the back for him too.

You can't see in the picture, because I snapped it before I was actually done, but I left a part of the seam open and sewed bugs into it because I love the part of the movie where oogie unwinds and bugs fall out.



I left a part of the seam on the side open and glued some creepy crawlies into it



here's a picture of Oogie, in case anyoneneeds their memory jogged <333

I'm envious, you could use this at an anime con (Kingdom Hearts series) and win costume contests!

Great work
