Oogie Boogie costume

I made this costume for myself for a convention. I absolutely love the Nightmare Before Christmas and wanted to put my own spin on one of the characters. It took me around 40 – 50 hours of work over a 3 month period and was made using jute material fully lined with cotton fabric. All the black stitching was done by hand using wool and the bugs were all hand made, the corset is fully boned with embroidery stitching. It’s definitely one of my most adventurous pieces to date. Everything (except the fimo bugs) was purchased at Fabricland in Reading.
