Sackboy is about to get an undead makeover thanks to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Sony revealed it will release new costume and level-kit packs next week for LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita based on the classic Halloween/Christmas stop-motion animation film. The kits will cost $5 each on the PlayStation Network.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Level Kits brings in materials from Halloween Town to help players build levels that look like Jack Skellington’s spooky homeland. The Nightmare Before Christmas Costume Pack, on the other hand, will enable users to dress up Sackboy like the hero Jack, his love interest Sally, the vile Doctor Finklestein, or the slimy ghost Oogie Boogie.

Sony confirmed that the costume pack works with PlayStation Cross-Buy. That means if you purchase it for the PlayStation 3, then you will have it for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita. The level kits, however, are different for each version of the game and are therefore not Cross-Buy compatible.

Now you have “This is Halloween” stuck in your head:
