Glowing Oogie Boogie Costume

oogie boogie

Oogie Boogie is one of the scariest Disney villains as far as I’m concerned. He’s cruel and manipulative, but he does have a cool costume. Instructables user kristylynn84 fashioned the entire costume from burlap and because the costume is loose and lumpy, it meant she could take some liberties (she didn’t use a pattern). She took the extra awesome step of making Oogie glow in the dark. Here’s how she achieved that with glowing spray paint:

We used about 6 cans. You may want to buy 7 or 8, just to be safe, and return the last one if you don’t use it. But remember, the suit will need numerous coats, and so will the mask.

I took him outside and made him do some slow spins as I painted him up. It’s transparent, so you can’t see what you’ve done until you hold a black light to it, once it’s dried it will activate. Yes, the paint went through and I ended up painting my husband LOL, it made a cool effect. (The can says to not get it on your skin. But he lived.)

I would say….10-12 coats of spray paint and between those, you need to go over it with a hand-held black light to see where you’ve missed any spots.
