Nightmare Before Christmas Costume – Oogie Boogie

Nightmare Before Christmas Costume - Oogie Boogie

Here’s another cool Nightmare Before Christmas costumeOogie Boogie. Craftster user ashleyjustine sewed this out of burlap and padded it with polyester fiber fill. She posted another picture showing the insects she added coming out of him, but because I’m terrified at the mere image of bugs, you’ll have to click through for that one.

Kids Yoda Costume

I mentioned last month that I was hoping to make a Yoda costume for my daughter Pearl, and yay, I finished it! I wrote it up as a tutorial for CRAFT: as part of their big Halloween round-up.

This is a super easy project to do if you sew — I finished it within a week. My favorite parts to make were the hat (I used Heather Mann‘s tutorial and actually made a little set of three in different sizes),

and the snake.

Please let me know if you make a Yoda costume too, I’d love to see it!
