My son wants me to make him a 'Nightmare Before Christmas' birthday cake, but when I googled cake toppers they were outrageously expensive! Does anyone have suggestions where I can find better priced toppers, or items to use on this cake? Thanks!

I bought my Corpse Bride one from It wasn't a cake topper, but they had the figurines. And they were much less $$$.

If you have a Spencers I would try there. They always seem to have Nighmare Before Christmas stuff! Good luck!

If you can't find anything at Spencers, you might try a comic shop. Often times they will have small figurines. In my experience a lot of the NMBC items are imported and a little bit pricey. But if you look around you might find something. You also might look at Disneystore online as they sometimes have items.

If there is a Hot Topic store near you they would probably have Nightmare stuff too. Any gothic shop basically.

Just a note on Spencer's...I called them last fall for NBC figurines and they told me they didn't have anything NBC. I stopped in one day -after I made the cake, mind you- and there were a lot of things I could have used.

There are a bunch of great NBC cakes in the gallery to get inspired with without neccessarily using purchased toppers in case you don't have any luck finding some. Good luck! It was a fun theme to make a cake for!
