Making Your Own Skeleton Costume

Think Halloween. Other than pumpkins, trick or treating, witches, and bats, I?ll bet you thought of skeletons, skulls, or bones. Unfortunately there isn?t a really good skeleton costume yet, but with creativity you can make your very own - one that is at least as good as those you can buy from the costume shop.

Skull - the skeleton?s head
Even if you only show up with a skull people will know you are a skeleton. If you have the money to invest in a skull mask I really recommend you do, but it is also possible to create one from scratch.

Take a long piece of black fabric, a large hood, or anything you can wrap around your face. Cut holes for the eyes, for breathing, and for the mouth (unless you don?t plan on eating or drinking). Now you just need to paint or glue a skull!

You can also use a balloon. Fill the balloon and glue several layers of paper on it. Let it dry. Now cut in half and you have the skeleton (pun intended) for two masks. Just cut the same holes, paint in black, let it dry, and then paint the skull. Use a string to hold it in place and then use a black hood to cover the rest of your head.

Costume - the skeleton per se
Take black clothes and white paint. That?s all you?ll need. That and a little knowledge of anatomy (or a fantastic new tool called Google). Just paint the skeleton over the clothes.

Accessories
The skeleton itself doesn?t need any accessories, however you can give it some personality by using a few simple items. A top hat and a walking stick will make for a stylish skeleton. A black hood, a black cape and scythe will create Death. And menacing skeletons will use a mace or axe (ideal weapons for crumbling other skeletons).

Skeletons are one of the most worn costumes for Halloween. This Halloween you can dress as one too.
