Dr. Finkelstein

Dr. Finkelstein

In The Nightmare Before Christmas, a grumpy, muttering old geezer, Dr. Finkelstein (William Hickey) is the creator of Sally (Catherine O'Hara) and the resident scientist in Halloween Town. While he is often shown being grouchy, he is highly protective of Sally and always eager to research and experiment with new ideas - especially if they involve Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon). At the end of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Dr. Finkelstein is shown to be wheeled around by his new wife that he created with half of his brain.

    I see all the things I would need to get to dress up like Dr. Finkelstein. I even have the electric wheelchair as I am wheelchair bound. I’m just unsure how to do his head and face. Can you please help? Thank you.
