Dress like Sally (Nightmare before Christmas) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Sally can be described as a living rag doll. From her patchwork dress to her long red hair, she is every part the rag doll.

Not to mention the fact that she is covered in stitches from being brought to life with different and mismatched parts. One of the really important parts to Sally’s costume is the makeup because of all the stitches she has, and also because of her very unique face and blue colored skin.

Her patchwork dress suits her very much, because like her, it is made up of several different fabrics and colors.

She also has cute black booties on her feet that make her walk in a very delicate and endearingly wobbly way. Lastly, her red hair is important to finish off the rag doll look.
