Your posting couldn't be any more timely!  I am a costumer with the international school here in Malaysia and we're doing Nightmare for our Christmas production and were daunted by how to do Oogie Boogie.  Yours is beautiful!  If you've any more construction details and don't mind sharing I'd sure be interested!  Thanks and great work! 

it's no problem. First off, I had robert lay down on some muslin and I drew the shape of oogie boogie around him, and then cut it out. I took the piece of muslin and made another copy for the back and then made two copies of the shape out of burlap. Then I glued poly fill onto the muslin in the areas I wanted oogie to be fat. I glued them so they would stay where I wanted them.  After I glued all of the poly fill I sewed the burlap front pice to one of the pieces of muslin, essentially making an oogie shaped pillow. I did the same for the back, only I sewed a zipper in also. oh, also...the arms and chest are lined with quilt batting, because I didn't want to use the fill there. So yeah, then I hand stitched the from and the back pieces together with twine and a large yarn needle. It will be much, much easier to sew if you leave yourself about a half to 1 inch border between the edge of the burlap and the muslin.
For the mask I used rubber coated wire...I think it was like 10 gage, to form the eyes and mouth. Then I cut out oogie head-shaped pices of burlap and cut holes for the eyes and mouth. I cut them in the same shape as the fire forms, but made the holes smaller. First I stitched the wire into the burlap, then I took black mesh and sewed it onto the back of the front of the mask, then just like for the body I hand stiched the mask together with twine.

For the bugs I just left a hole in the body while I was stitching, then I hot glued in plastic bugs.

I hope this helped!

actually, oogie is burlap in normal light, he only glows under black lights..green wouldnt have looked like the real oogie

BUT some glow in the dark paint to make him glow like oogie would have been alot of fun, in a really thin layer, so it wouldnt change his color

i need to find burlap to make an oogie doll, im gonna do the glow paint on that one

it's super cheap at jo-anns!
