Authentic Handmade Sally Costume
My mom made this Sally costume using hand-dyed colored burlap from Fabric on a Whim. She hand-cut the patches, sewed them on and used black thread to stitch it to an old dress I had that was kind of stretchy. She used dark purple and brown Sharpie brush tip markers to draw patterns on the fabric. The tights and hand warmers were store bought.
I didn’t wear this full make-up to school because I thought it would scare the pre-school kids in my Child Study class–LOL!–so I opted for the toned-down version and actually thought it made Sally look kind of pretty!;) But the photo shoot was spooky and fun. I felt that my look was really true to the character of Sally from “A Nightmare Before Christmas.” I got a ton of compliments on it!
