Jack Skellington Costume

Introduction: Jack Skellington Costume

The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite musicals, so I decided to make female costume inspired by Jack Skellington. I made it with my sewing machine. First I have sewed a black suit (pants + tail-coat). I've used about 1,5 m cotton fabric. Then I've painted stripes on it with white fabric paint. I've made the felt bat bow tie by my own too.

    most impressive, much better then those horrible store bought ones. Id wear this even if it wasnt halloween

    very cool costume. You could use make up to make you face pale and do the long, black mouth.

    not saying it looks bad, looks fine... but looks more like a 'wife of jack' costume, not a Jack costume... mostly because his suit has full stripes, now... it might look better inside out

    Cute outfit. Doesnt quite come across as jack... Maybe whiteface with black skull details would do it.
    Well done. Looks good. Target not quite reached but still very rad.

    I agree, Jack inspired, but not quite worth calling 1-off costume for Jack..
