How to Dress as Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Adult Sally Costume Licensed Costume from Disguise Inc

Moving on to some more unconventional Christmas costumes for women based on my favorite Christmas movie of all time (no, not Die Hard); The Nightmare Before Christmas. Specifically, we'll be looking at how to dress up as Sally, everybody's favorite ragdoll. Its a cute look, very iconic and a lot of fun to dress as no matter what the event. It also makes a lovely couples costume, if you get a friend to go as Jack Skellington!

First of all you'll need Sally's colorful patchwork dress. I've included my two favorite costumes, a longer dress and a short and sexy one. You can also get one like the one on the left in a more glam and figure hugging style if that takes your fancy. Both of these costumes have the advantage of coming with the red yarn style wigs and the stitched style gloves you see in the pictures, so that saves needing to style your hear or buy a wig separately.

You can also get stitched skin tights to save you the trouble of covering yourself in makeup - they are a fantastic touch to any Sally costume and they look really good. They are handy in that they can be used in other costumes too, like Frankenstein costumes. 

Finally, you'll need to do up your makeup to look like Sally. Its a pretty elaborate look, so it's optional, but if you can pull it off you will look utterly amazing. To this end I've included and excellent video tutorial on how to do the Sally makeup for you to check out below.
