"Kidnap the Sandy Claws, throw him in a box... Bury him for ninety years, then see if he talks!"

No matter what anyone says, the best part of The Nightmare Before Christmas is the three little minions of Oogie Boogie, Lock, Shock and Barrel. We've dreamed of dressing up as the trio from Halloween for so many years but these teens have just put us all to shame. If you ever needed an excuse to visit Santa's Grotto as a grown adult, here it is. 

Elissa, a cosplayer from Southern California, and two of her friends dressed up as the henchmen and headed off to the mall... to kidnap the Sandy Claws.


Santa was such a good sport, he even managed to pull a few miserable facial expressions before they threw him into the bag to take back to Oogie Boogie.


Literally the best thing we've ever seen. 


Right then, time to regroup before we set off to kidnap the Easter Bunny.
