How to Make a funny Halloween Costume Skeleton

There are just so many scary things at Halloween, but possibly none as scary as the Halloween skeleton costumes. It seems that many people, both young and old, are attracted to the skeleton. Just the thought of bones is what scares most people. Therefore, at Halloween time traditionally there are a great number of people in costumes seen running around town that have at least part of a skeleton attached to it.

It is quite easy to make your own skeleton costume. Most people buy costumes year after year, but with the rising costs these days, it is cheaper to take a few minutes of time and make your own. It only takes a few supplies and some imagination to fashion your very own designer Halloween skeleton costume. Doing it this way is also more fun than just buying it from a store.

Just take any dark shirt you may have laying around and use that as your starting point. This can be a t- shirt or a sweatshirt. Whatever plain black shirt you have will work. If you don’t have a black one, navy blue works just as well. You can make a full skeleton costume by adding a pair of black pants, such as sweat pants. Pieces of cardboard and white chalk, or fabric chalk, are other supplies you will need.

Once you have your supplies assembled, you can get started making your Halloween skeleton costume. Cut the cardboard to fit inside the arms of the shirt, if you have chosen a long sleeved one. Another piece of cardboard should be cut to fit inside the chest of the shirt. Once the cardboard is inside the shirt, lay it on a flat surface. Use your white chalk or fabric chalk to draw bones on the shirt. If you happen to be doing this for a child, let this be a learning experience by explaining what bones go where as you are drawing them. Even if you aren’t an artist, this will still be fun.

The bones you will want to be sure are there include the neck bones, back bones, ribs, and possibly the hip bones. You can add gloves to the costume if you want, and draw in finger bones. The design for your Halloween skeleton is limited only by your imagination.

Not only is this costume rather spooky, but it can be made on the spur of the moment. It is one that can be worn for Trick or Treating, or to an adult party. So, it is quite versatile. To top off the costume, you have the option of either painting your face white, or wearing a simple white mask.

Be creative with some finishing touches to make the Halloween skeleton costume your own. Above all have fun creating and wearing your very own funny Halloween costume.
