Going into this project I knew I wanted to kick it off with a character that was familiar but not recreated by women very often. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite Halloween, and Christmas, films and the soundtrack is equally amazing. The main female character, Sally, is typically who I see girls and women dressed up as but honestly she is nothing compared to Jack Skellington. I enlisted my friend Britney to use her magic (she created my looks for DragonCon last year – Pennywise and The Raven) and I knew that certain costumes would need her expertise. You’ll be seeing more of her mind-blowing makeup skills throughout October. The makeup took about 3 hours (see the IGTV on Instagram here) and came out so beautifully. I was pleasantly surprised with the bagged costume I got from Amazon and overall the entire look came together easily. I did add a black tulle tutu under the dress for some added fullness. The gloves, which are a must for this costume, were found at Party City and really tie the look together. His long fingers are essential in bringing him to life! I’ve linked everything to my costume below, happy October 1!
