Character: Sally
Source: The Nightmare Before Christmas
Seamstress/Model:: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography: Elysia [fenyxdesign]

Construction Notes:
This past Katsucon I had the pleasure of working with Elysia of Fenyx Design! While we were shooting I asked for detail shots showing some of the more minor details incorporated into Sally, such as the mottled colors of the yarn wig, the varying fabrics/textures and weathering on the dress, and the raised stitches on my face. Not only did she capture those details perfectly, but this image reminds me greatly of the scene where Sally throws herself out of her tower in order to bring a present to Jack. (And if you squint a little, you can even pretend that I'm missing an arm, just as she is at the time!) I still have a good bit of work to do on the unitard, which is obviously a bit too baggy and not as detailed as I'd like, so please ignore that particular aspect of the costume. C: If you'd like to learn more about this costume's construction, please check out my previous uploads.

Thanks! I make all of my own costumes, otherwise I'd feel extremely foolish uploading another person's work to DeviantART.

Wow this costume is simply beautiful! Wonderful job on its construction to :D: heart: it and you look so much like her :) may i ask where you got the unitard? I've been wanting to make my own Sally costume cuz the ones Disney sells aren't that great in quality.

Thanks for the advice :)

Thank you very much! I always buy dance apparel from discountdance.com. They have really great prices, and have never let me down.

You're very welcome :) I read your artist comments on how you made the dress and I truly appreciate artists/seamstresses who put a lot of time, effort and detail in their work :nod:

Is your theatrical makeup a water base? Cuz I've been looking for makeup like that for a while now.

Thanks again for the helpful advice :)

Gosh, I'm just glad to hear that all my babbling might help someone out! :D If you're looking for water-based makeup, go for Kryolan Aquacolor. Personally, I struggle with getting an even makeup job with it and prefer to work with cream-based makeup, but if you're adamant about using water, it's about the best product you can get!

You make an amazing Sally! We love all the little details you added to the costume, such as the raised stitches on your face and on the costume. The yarn wig is perfect as well! This was definitely one of our favorite cosplays at Katsucon this year. :D
