Yes, this is a costume. no, it is NOT a toy. I know, i was just as surprised as you are. No word on who the masked villain is- does anyone know whose costume this is? I will probably marry them. or keep them as pet.
There are only a handful of movies that were as magically dark as the Nightmare Before Christmas- and most of them were NOT made by Disney. If it wasn't for this film, I don't know if Disney would have found a place early on in the hearts of misfits that would then turn into dark disney adults like me.
