Jack Skellington Zero Puppet
It was summer and quarantine, and I wanted to tackle a creative project. I already have a small business customizing shoes — check it out on Instagram @aj_custom_shoes or on Etsy @ajcustomshoes! I also really like puppets, so I decided to try my hand at making one. I decided to make a Halloween costume: Jack Skelington with a Zero puppet from the movie musical Nightmare Before Christmas. The puppet took me several months to make, and it’s all hand-made, including the mask. The jacket was hand-painted. Ultimately, I am really proud of it, and I won “Best Costume” in a contest with my theater company, Orbit Arts Academy!
