Coolest Homemade Toddler Oogie Boogie Halloween Costume

This is a favorite Halloween movie for most of us, and it was for my 3 year old. She is obsessed with the color green, and so, was obsessed with Oogie Boogie, the villain from the Nightmare Before Christmas who is a gambling burlap sac of maggots.

Of course, to make this Homemade Toddler Oogie Boogie Halloween Costume more comfortable, I used fleece to outline my daughter’s body. I free hand cut and sewed the suit with my sewing machine and the outside seam was hand stitched with yarn. The entire costume was lined with another layer of fleece so that she could be stuffed with polyester filling to simulate being stuffed with bugs.

Her headpiece and suit were made together, and there was only one slit in the back that she used to get in and out. Most of the head was filled with stuffing but I left some of the end of the head unstuffed so that it wouldn’t be too heavy.

Her mouth is what she saw through and it was covered with mesh and molded with wire. I got the fuzzy dice from a local Gothic store and that completed the look!

This Homemade Toddler Oogie Boogie Halloween Costume was a great hit at the local trick or treat neighborhoods and she is already planning next years costume!
