Skeleton Halloween Costume Ideas
There are lots of ways to be a skeleton for Halloween. It can be as simple as buying a skeleton T-Shirt and getting a skeleton mask to match, or you can go the more complex route and get a full-body skeleton suit - If you don't mind being a bit 2-dimensional, you could even get a skeleton zentai suit for quite cheap. Here are a few dark Halloween costume ideas on how to make your skeleton costume:
Skeleton Makeup -
Makeup is popular among teens, within an hour you can transform your face and body into a scary boney skeleton. Note: If you are purchasing makeup from your local store or online, look for products approved by FDA.
Death Skeleton - You can also opt to have a bit of a story behind your reanimation. If you want to look like a fully-decomposed corpse, grab a skeleton mask and wear grungy jacket with a hoodie. For extra creepiness, rest a animal skull on your shoulder.
Full-Body Skeleton - You can buy these costumes at party stores or online, but they basically cover you from head to toe. The outfit may be little more than a zentai suit that has skeletal features painted on, or it can feature fully 3D plastic bones that line your body, from your toe bones to your skull. Some of these suits also glow in the dark, which makes them extra creepy when you're prowling around at night.
Extra Effects - For added effect, pick clothes that aren't from your current time period. If you want to add an extra touch of grossness, they sell chest plate rib cages that secrete fake blood, that way people have something to look at when you rip your shirt open.
