Homemade Jack Skellington Child Costume
I have a 4 year old who has wanted to be Jack since last year, after watching "The Nightmare before Christmas". I looked EVERYWHERE for a costume to buy one. I could not find one!! They are all for ADULTS.
SO we had to make our own homemade Jack Skellington child costume. I came here to get some ideas and there are PLENTY! Thanks to everyone!!
We used paper Mache and a balloon to make the mask, cut out eye hole and nose (x-acto knife), we used black felt and glue for the face (mouth & eyebrows), we also used black felt and cardboard for the bat tie. We were going to cover the eye holes with a see-thru black material, but decided to just paint he's face (around eyes) black on Halloween. This way he will be able to see clearly (safety reasons).
We got a hand-me-down suit from a cousin (shhhh!) and taped it and spray painted white lines on it. We still have to fix it a little but it still looks good. EVERYTHING came out great!! I had to hide it from him so he won’t want to wear it EVERYDAY!! He can't wait until Halloween!!
Thanks to this great website for all the great ideas from everyone! A Happy Halloween to EVERYONE!! (Early but still)

My son was born in October and I'm a huge fan of Halloween. I wanted to dress him up for his very first Halloween and needed an easy costume for a 1 month old infant. We are also big fans of Tim Burton and we decided on doing the Nightmare Before Christmas.
Daddy and I went as Jack and Sally (and as I just had a baby was too busy to hand make those costumes). For our son we decided to make him a Homemade Zero the Ghost Dog Baby Costume.
I used a Christmas tree skirt for the body and sewed a red satin ribbon (as the collar) around the hole where my son's head would go. As for the hat, I took an white infant hat, sewed on two black felt circles for eyes, and cut ears out of white felt and sewed them on either side.
All together we looked awesome! And the costume was comfy for my baby. Probably my favorite Halloween to date!
