Homemade Glowing Oogie Boogie Costume
I have been wanting to make an Oogie Boogie costume since I one, fell in love with the Nightmare Before Christmas, and two, realized that the only commercially available costume was hideous! I finally set my mind to doing a glowing Oogie Boogie costume this year and I think it came out alright. I used burlap, black yarn, embroidery thread (color of burlap), piece of black fabric, wire, paper towels, plastic bags and glowz glow in the dark spray paint.
There was no pattern, so I just had to put it up to my husband and cut, then stitch. I would just pinch here and sew there until it looked right. The plastic bags are to stuff the point and the black fabric is sewn into the mouth. Wrap wire in paper towels and stitch on for the lips. This way they are shapable! I needed more glows to make it full coverage, but I had already used 8 cans! Maybe I can fill in a little more next year.
