In this post I will show you how to make your very own Oogie Boogie Halloween Costume! Like most first time mom’s whose adorable little baby has now learned to walk, I got super excited for Halloween! While pondering about what I wanted my son’s first Halloween costume to be I had a couple guidelines in place I felt were crucial.
- His costume had to be scary but also cute! Although I love adorable costumes, I still felt strongly that I wanted this costume to embody the true essence of Halloween!
- It had to be recognizable. I wanted to make something people would notice instantly.
- I didn’t want it to be generic (ex: witch, ghost, zombie)
With these rules I set in place for myself I thought “wow, I really love a challenge!” The internet was a great place to start for inspiration. I started googling classic Halloween movies for kids and one of the first to pop up was “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” This was perfect! I absolutely love all Tim Burton movies and this was definitely one of my favorites! Now that I had my movie, picked out I instantly thought “Oogie Boogie!”
